It was my birthday last week, yes I'm a Scorpio and the few days between it and All Hallows Eve are usually big ones. The larger the crowd the better, the more parties, larger hair I say, I wanna look like Priscilla Presley on her wedding day for my birthday week. So why was it that on Halloween I had my hair in a bun(yes matted down from the adventure the night before) but crawling in my closet throwing away old hats I'll never wear again. Well nothing is certain but change and new moon breeds it. Birthday or no, last weekend was a new moon and it was filled with the energy of clearing out and being gracious and compassionate towards anything that remains. So sometimes whether I think I want to or not, I attempt to stay in balance with the seasons change. SO for the first time in years and years I declined the parade, let my big hair get wet, and continued what has been my real thematic experiment of fall, simplicity. I took Halloween to stay home, to clean, to cook warming foods, to take a bath and most importantly to rest. Sound boring, feel like you cant take all that? Well you dont have to because two weeks later, still in the rhythm, of the universe you can experience the night life, the extra cocktail, you can bring back your big hair. Because within every rhythm of rest there is an opposite place to celebrate and the full moon is a beacon for it. As new Yorkers we sometime cant make our schedules centered around a nine to five job, so why not the moon phases? Ive found recently that following the moon helps me give myself time to rest as well as time to celebrate and my moon oils enhance both those energies, and all the energies in between.
