Speaking openly (Cardinal Air) requires courage because to confidently “sing your song” is one of the most raw and vulnerable experiences that you can have. To have an authentic conversation you will have to take a path through a dimly lit region at the edge your soul, a place called fear – fear of rejection, fear of not being accepted; fear of not being loved. Yet in spite of the fact that you may fear that you won’t be loved, to openly speak your truth is one of the most important things you can do in creating a world that truly honours your voice.

Many spiritual traditions speak of a set of common themes interwoven into the notion of ‘40’ – ritualistic cleansing, purification, prayer, inner reflection, stillness in preparation for a renewal of spirit and ultimately a re-birthing of the light within. The internalised conflict and testing of each stories ends with an orb of light bathing the seeker in a glorious radiance of light;

Despite the genuine and positive technological advances that the Age of Reason has brought us, as a society we have been conditioned to detached ourselves from the world around us. We have been seduced by technology to abdicated responsibility for our well-being, preferring to trust a clock on your wrist to tell you how many steps you have walked, how long you have slept at night,

The enemies of your sOul are strong forces in your life, attempting to keep you chained to your ego, hoping that you continue to look for success, for acknowledgement, for validation and for recognition. The vanity of entitlement keeps you ever seeking external gratification, and the belief good things will befall you just because you walk your path, imprisons you.

The super charged Cardinal Water, or Cancerian, lunation of the 13th July 2018 is also one of both seeding and creating AND illumination and confrontation as the Lights align but in direct opposition to Pluto – an alignment is a New Moon phase and an opposition is the awareness and illumination phase. Since this New Moon is also a partial Eclipse of the Sun (partially visible from southern Australia and by penguins all over Antarctica, but felt by everyone all over the world),

The language that we speak shapes the way we think, The Kuuk Thaayorre people in the far remote northerly peninsula of Cape York in Queensland, Australia, they do not use words like left and right opting to speak using the cardinal directions instead – north, south , east and west. If there an insect landed on your right arm they would say there is something on your east arm, or move your cup to the north north east instead of move your cup a little towards me to your left. Consequently their sense of space and direction is more refined and better than most human cultures because direction is implicit to their world view.

Further and further away from the Earth we walk, as technology seduces our mind with unlimited access to selfies, reality TV, instant access to the inner twittering of another’s mind and the countless distractions that colonise our increasingly diminishing attention; as mechanisation of food means that we can grow pizza’s on trees; as urbanisation spreads like cancer across the land,

Something feels different about where you are now. You can feel it. Maybe it has to do with your courage being kindled. Maybe it has to do with realising that within you lies a unique identity, something that no one can ever replicate or template. Maybe it has to do with realising that your body, your home, your family of origin, your education, your social background, your religion, your culture or your location does not define who you truly are

In your hand is a reminder of the delicate beauty of a pure heart, the hope of rebirth and the wisdom of heart-centred enlightenment. This time is passing and there is much to gain from being obscured. Draw deep from your own dignity as you walk with an open heart to free yourself from your wounds as those ancient scripts surface and despondency has arisen. Exhale into softness, as you temper your inner world with gentleness. Honesty is always vulnerable, in the same way that the lily is vulnerable away from its pond. Take the lily back to its home

during the lunation of the 15th February as the Lights of our consciousness align with the voice of your perception within this doggedly persistent archetypal landscape within your soul’s make up, is that the word that you generate to hold your attention serves your Higher good; that better enables you to walk a conscious Path of lOve; that frees you from the enslavery of distraction; that supports you to live your jOy; t
