Greetings Star Seeds,
Kali-Ma, the Hindu goddess of death and rebirth, heralds the end of a cycle and brings about transformation. Change is challenging for humans. Fear of change prevents us from growing, soaring, and shining. Kali-Ma has been my companion in facing some fears around transitions and (en)couraging me to heed the call of Spirit. Like the dark mother and the dark moon time, she offers an invitation into hidden places in our psyche and provides the fierce energy to confront our shadows and turn them into allies with potent healing potential. For me she has midwifed a path toward wholeness, allowing me to embrace truth and welcome a new cycle in my life.
It is with great gratitude that I announce a new personal beginning as I transition my work place to Urban Holistic in Potrero Hill, where I will be offering craniosacral treatments, flower essence therapy and Astro-Soma sessions starting in January 2019. I am excited to be part of the Urban Holistic team of skilled practitioners in creating a community and environment that facilitates the journey toward wellness. I share their philosophy of optimum health being the conscious integration of mind, body and spirit and their vision of empowering individuals to elevate their well-being and connect with their innate capacity for healing. The services they offer include physical therapy, massage and acupuncture along with wonderful classes in pilates, tai chi and more. If you choose to become a member, there is a discount on all services! They also have an online booking system through MindBody online app. or you can continue to book directly with me.
May Mercury’s forward motion provide the motivation and opportunity to make manifest goals and visions that have been in the re-view, re-search, and re-configuration phase during its retrograde period. And may this year of Jupiter in Sagittarius (Nov. 8, 2018-Dec. 2, 2019) bestow good luck and blessings on your endeavors. These energies invite us to go global, seek cross-cultural connections, engage in higher learning and expand spiritual pursuits.
Jupiter takes a little over 12 years to make its way around the astrological wheel, spending about 13 months in each sign. The last time Jupiter was in its home sign of the Archer was Nov. 25, 2006- Dec. 18, 2007. Themes that were highlighted during that time could serve as pointers for what may be up for you during this cycle. Remember your interaction and ability to respond to said themes will be different as you engage from a place of wisdom gained from experience and maturity.
My greatest wish for you during this time is that you embrace the courage to face any fears that may be keeping you from living to your fullest potential. Find contentment in progress; release perfection. May this coming year be one of optimism and joy. We grow when we are open to learning new things. May we welcome the opportunity to expand our minds and our hearts. May we vibe with our authentic soul song and invoke the frequency of abundance. Give generously. Speak truth. Have more fun. Grieve the losses and be grateful for the entire spectrum of experiences. Be willing to see a higher perspective and be open to the gifts that are offered, even in the really hard stuff. Remember that our personal cycles have beginnings and endings and just like nature’s seasonal changes we were meant to flow with those changes in order to experience cycles of birth, growth, harvest and composting, death and rebirth. It is my belief we need to dance with all these aspects to embrace wholeness.
May you be aligned with your soul’s urgings and step into congruency of heart and mind. If your spirit has been whispering (or perhaps screaming) for a shift to help you align, now may be the time to take a risk and make the leap. I appreciate each and every one of you and extend many thanks to my colleagues at the Purple Iris Healing Center where I had my practice for an entire Jupitarian 12 year cycle.
With winter solstice blessings and infinite gratitude,
Kali Ma, by Lily Moses
