Wisdom Byte: Eclipse invites Feminine to Lead
WISDOM BYTE: Eclipse Invites Feminine to Lead
You’d have to live under a rock to not know it was an eclipse today… but there’s some feminine wisdom about this new moon shift that likely missed the network and social media feeds that can provide some illumination to each of our path’s ahead.
Throughout the year on the new and full moons, I send out meditations and teachings to the wisdom in my circles I call Wisdom Bytes – timeless wisdom applied to our modern lives. Today’s wisdom byte is about the potency of the eclipse, not as one day, but as a Divine nod that shift is happening.
If we are conscious of the shift – from both a mystical and material level – we can use the wisdom to fuel our work, take care of our families and ourselves, and create the world we desire.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness.
The last time a total solar eclipse was visible across the entire contiguous United States was during the June 8, 1918 eclipse.
Feminine Wisdom shares…
The sun, masculine energy, and the moon, feminine energy, came into total alignment today – they were ONE. The feminine and the masculine energy lives in each one of us … and most of us tend to have a dominant way of operating that discounts the others power. For example, we value doing and achieving in physical, forward moving action or actions we judge as productive more than we value (and therefore practice) pausing, refueling and action that appears passive. Wisdom traditions have taught this for thousands of years.
Today was a shift on the material plane, giving the two powers within more potential to dance in harmony to create the lives and world we desire, without having to sacrifice what we truly need.
The moon came between the earth and the sun which can mystically be seen as… the feminine is leading the masculine into creating this new world. Not woman/man, but the power of feminine/masculine energy, and not one or the other, but both. It’s the feminine energy within us asking us to let lead the dance – compassion, collaboration, connecting, intuition – and inviting us into more feminine ways of creating, leading and living that support our wellbeing and the well being of humanity and this planet as a whole.
For example, instead of driving forward at all costs or from the mental thoughts we create that often create unsustainable realities, we pause to feel the impact of our actions first, and we always start with our intuition and imagination to expand possibility before applying the intellect which can only respond to what it has seen before, and is limited.
APPLYING THE WISDOM TO LIFE
We all have access to these powerful sources within us – but it’s not like we got to go to Hogwarts to study how to activate these two powerful energies and put them to use to fuel our work, take care of our families and ourselves, and create realities that sustain us. But the wisdom is there still. Right inside you, right inside me.
The way we apply Wisdom to our daily practical life choices and realities is through the power of INQUIRY …
inquiries are questions that act like truth portals into your heart and soul. These three inquiries, if you ask them and chew on them, can illuminate where you are pushing, forcing and taking on too much (distorted power) vs. allowing yourself to be supported to work and live in the flow, focused on what matters (feminine and masculine power dancing together). Here’s your wisdom inquiries this moon:
- Where am I letting my intellect and logical mind make my choices about work, relationships, family, home, health, and either ignoring or doubting my INTUITION?
- Where am I operating from competition or from doing it all myself instead of collaboration and asking for support? And what is the impact?
- What situation in my life am I judging or criticizing myself for instead applying the soft but super powered energy of COMPASSION to? And if I were to switch the voice in my head from controlling and critical to compassionate loving truth, what would I be telling myself instead?
