June 9-15, telling stories to the Sea

Sea Legs

The image of walking along a beach, as the tide recedes, keeps floating up as I think of the energy of this week.  It’s a cloudy day, mellow and melancholy, and we meander along the newly revealed sea-bottom, examining the treasures and trash yielded by the sea.  Is there something we hoped was gone forever, something we tossed into the depths to discard?  And, yet, here is, revealed and resurfaced again.  This wet jumble of forgotten dreams, emotional flotsam and jetsam is asking us to re-dream, re-arrange and re-member.  As the master dreamer Robert Moss said, of his ancestral Celtic lineage: “Celtic shaman is a poet, a storyteller.  He heals by telling a better story”.  The Scorpio Moon of Monday and Tuesday is inviting us to pick up our discarded pieces and get creative.  A whole new collage, a mosaic of magic can emerge.  And, don’t worry if this picture looks a bit jagged and strange!  That’s precisely the goal of this Moon – to show us faces of us that we haven’t yet seen or recognized.  Allow yourself to be the mysterious stranger…to yourself…don’t hurry to give this face a name.  Wander along the tideline, the border that belongs to neither land or sea.
As the Moon sails on to Sagittarius Wednesday, the breeze picks up, building up a frothy surf.  We get impatient, and dreams of setting off for distant shores fill our mental sails.  The wild waves wipe out our melancholy masterpieces of yesterday, and toss up some driftwood for a Full Moon bonfire.  All kinds of pirates and adventurers gather round the flames, speaking million different tongues.
Hard to tell who’s exchanging heroic tales, who’s gearing up for a fight.  Venus in Taurus, the lovely lusty goddess, saves the day by turning on some tunes for a hearty dance.
On Friday, Capricorn Moon sweeps in, giving orders to clean up the mess and straighten out the scene.  Sometimes its good to have a firm captain in charge.  As the Moon lights up the Grand Cross pattern briefly on Saturday, arguments arise who’s job it is to wash the dishes and swab the decks, and who gets to go exploring new territories.  As the evening rolls around, lovely Venus again, this time backed up by generous Jupiter, smooths out the ruffled feathers by serving up a delectable feast of earthly and emotional nourishment.
The week ends with a breath of fresh air: Sunday’s Aquarius Moon lifts our sights and minds to higher grounds and further horizon’s.  It’s excellent time to gather all our inner characters and outer compadres to plot the course for ambitious utopian adventures.  Impossible just means hasn’t been done YET:)  And, since we survived the trips to the depths and the raucous seas of the days before, we feel stronger and wiser, more capable of dreaming big and gathering the crew to start building the ship to take us across the known horizon.
