During this turbulent time in the world, the astrological omens confirm that places in our deep past are being awakened for healing. Our unique voices are being called on to be heard, to be spoken.
All of this can really hurt, because for some of us these are the places that are full of unexpressed fear and rage. And speaking to them? Well that’s just asking for trouble. For more turbulence. The dark world of wounds that haven’t fully healed, that feel raw and newly exposed, is a terrifying place and calls for protection, begs us for our tender care.
But what I am thinking is this—this is another level of experiencing Halloween, as we meet all kinds of ghosts and goblins, witches and warlocks within ourselves, and in our world.
And my thought around this is, make an offering to them! Give them some kind of sweetness, some kind of balm, some golden honey.
The words of an amazing astrologer I once saw for a reading, named Saffron Rossi, come to mind. When speaking to my reaction of overwhelm when she referred to the details of Saturn as a taskmaster in my life she said,
“Not to worry, Saturn likes small offerings.”
This referred to even the smallest conscious action every day to show Saturn that I am working with him. He wants me to be more cautious with my finances? I hold back from spending the extra $7.00 on a latte. He wants me to stop being lazy in paying attention to the details of my business? I do 10 minutes of bookkeeping every day, or I work on some marketing task that I have been resisting for a week.
Simple things like that.
So what kind of sweets do we offer into the tender places in ourselves that are being shaken awake by the wild storms of these times? Acknowledgement. Respect. Listening. Not turning away from those hidden places that want to be healed when they start to wake up.Honoring our own pain and that of others.
Love. Support. Friendship.
Maybe one day that looks like going out into the woods by ourselves, and screaming. On another day, it’s allowing someone to witness our hurt, our rage, our fear.Or holding someone else as they express theirs with you. Perhaps it’s opening ourselves up to someone we trust and sharing just a little bit of our story.
During this Halloween season, when the veils are thin, healing is afoot. I hold you in my heart as I hold this world in my heart. For healing, for tenderness, for evolution.
