Day Twenty-Five: The Epiphany of Silence

August 1

Waning Moon in Gemini

Void of Course @ 12:48pm

Sun in Leo

Aug 1

Moon’s energy has lessened outwardly, but  is flowing deeply internally spreading into every cavern of our being.  This is preparation and necessary for the birthing of the Moon anew in the next cycle of her potent phase.  It has felt  like there has been a definite change in where the thrust of energy has been directed since the peaking of the Full Moon and the days prior as it was waxing.  The energies have been a bit more subdued, not really any less potent if you really pay attention, but a definite sense of inner refining and tweaking.  As we are nearing the next New Moon cycle there is a feeling of slow and steady pressure building from the inside out.  Nothing you can concretely put your finger on, but palpable nonetheless.

The last vestiges of Gemini’s presence was felt this morning and there seemed to be a slowing down in the communication venue.  This would be the later stages of Gemini’s outpour so I guess people are all talked out and the pace is relaxing into that space of void at 12:48p.m.  Today marks the Sabbat of  Lammas, the first harvest of the Great Wheel.  So, I am thinking about how this harvesting could be applied to the work that has been done so far on this journey.

The timing is ripe in that we are also in the Moon’s harvesting stage as it wanes; releasing and letting go of Her outward potency.  Emotionally and intuitively, what has been nurtured and analyzed in moving through this lunar cycle would have been overwhelming and unproductive if it had been left to expand any further.  Leaving Gemini’s constant chatter is similar to reaping what has reached maximum.  After the cutting down of the exhaustive noise of communication comes a deep and satisfying silence that holds the keys of what cannot be articulated.

I had mentioned ion an earlier post about an analogy of these energies going though their own individual stages of beginning, peak and ending.  The solar energy of its astrological sign of Leo will be hitting is peak point at the New Moon next Tuesday when Moon and Sun are in the same sign.  This means that as the Sun’s energies have been waxing the Moon’s have been waning.  I am thinking about what effect this could have on the lunar work done; especially since the Sun is in its ruling sign with the potency of draconian fire.  The image I have is one of the potency of the Sun’s energy drying up what is left of the lunar waters.  (again something similar to Harvest).  And, if those waters do not find safe heaven and deeper integration, perhaps those emotions we wish to cultivate will wither and dry up.

So, perhaps moving into the deeper recesses and the space where silence informs and draws gnosis to itself is the safe heaven of integration I will explore. Entering this calming flow of transition is what I will try to do. The Moon will remain void until it enters it’s astrological sign of rulership- Cancer on Saturday morning at 12:29a.m.   Until then, I am going to listen deeply to the silence of this void and bring with me those select parts of my emotional self that need more tending.

Words fell like rain
Spilling out and overflowing
Waters that had been dammed
Up and held secure.

Sound rumbled and roared
Like a sleepy lion
Awakened too soon
And ready to pounce.

Movement flowed
And clanged about
Noisily looking for
What path it had left behind.

Silence descended and
All that had raged
Uncontrolled and unanswered
Now rested cloaked in
The wisdom of its sound.
