“Only when we accept full responsibility for our lives will we have the confidence and courage to risk.” Stacy Allison, first American woman to stand at the peak of Mt. Everest.
Stand on the mountain top of life experience,
recognize your journey,
your lineage of personal history,
all your stories of where you’ve been
and where you aspire to go.
Solar Eclipse shuffles the deck and
hands out a reality check.
about the domain of your responsibilities.
The struggle for security, solid ground
and strategies to reach your goals.
The importance of accomplishment,
power and reputation.
Breathe deeply into the roots of time,
pro-claim all parts of you
here and now
and yet to be.
Strength of endurance,
wisdom within wounds,
New Moon, New Year
another mountain peak to climb.
Assess your goals and ambitions without recrimination.
Check your baggage, dispense the guilt
release the grip of past limitations.
Make plans and change plans
with patience and persistence
and include the seven generations ahead.
Solar Eclipse Capricorn
January 5, 2019 5:28 pm PT
Solar Eclipses are notable for shuffling the deck. This one is in Capricorn, the sign associated with structure and authority. How clearly the eclipse speaks as the old Patriarchal power insists on building walls and barriers and the fresh blood in 116th class of Congress, unprecedented in diversity, speaks for holding a more inclusive umbrella for the generations ahead.
As the insecurity of boundaries is challenged, we grapple with authority, responsibility and control. There is a deep healing crisis that resonates around the world and in our personal lives. The limitations of dysfunctional ancestral lineage are becoming glaringly obvious. It is not an easy task to face and release the guilt, inhibitions and fear that are embedded in our cellular memories.
Flaws are magnified as we are achingly aware of where we are at odds, what doesn’t fit, what is broken. Restrictive boundaries. Loneliness. Be aware of self criticism and blame. Define purpose. Set intentions.
“For nothing is fixed, forever and forever and forever, it is not fixed; the earth is always shifting, the light is always changing, the sea does not cease to grind down rock. Generations do not cease to be born, and we are responsible to them because we are the only witnesses they have. The sea rises, the light fails, lovers cling to each other, and children cling to us. The moment we cease to hold each other, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out.” James Baldwin
Recognize your vulnerabilities as well as your strengths and incorporate all levels of your awareness to prepare for the journey ahead.
