|Emotional Confusion to Clarity in the New Year!
The Guest House
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
— Jellaludin Rumi
For the rest of November and into December focus on your ability to perceive and mirror the thoughts and feeling of others. And ask, what about your environment, circumstances and relationships is being reflected back to you for your own self-understanding?
Now is a time for mental strength and BRAVING EMOTIONS, it is a time for facing any deep fears of emotions. You are naturally being invited to feel and face them with the support of the moon and stars. When you do this, you will gain wisdom about your relationships (with self, other, and the world around you). There is a teaching within every moment, a gift within every emotional wave, and freedom in feeling awareness.
Feel, observe, gain insight and understanding first – then communicate your truth when the time is right so you can move forward from a place of compassion, beauty, majesty and cooperation.
Discern the difference between your wants and needs. Be patient and truthful with yourself while you are waiting (recommended) for your clarity to return. It is always best to make decisions and take action when and where you feel calm, clear, knowing and confident with your choices, actions and communications. This Full Moon is really asking you to be patient as clarity is promised to be coming in the next few weeks if you are willing to do the emotional work, and to just wait and watch a little while longer.
Independence, fearlessness, determination, and an open heart will give you strength during this very transformational time of year. Guard against being overly argumentative and erratic in intimate relationships.
