is the fact and truth reflected by the Moon in full eclipse.
~That~ is what the glow is. Really. All of the sunrises and sunsets happening on our planet, never visible to us in this way from where we stand.. except when we can see the light reflected back to us, deflected and filtered for a few hours. (And even if we can’t see it, for clouds or daylight, we can know – because, evidence! – it’s there.)
For the Moon – thanks for what you are for us here on Earth, and special thanks for the reflected glimpses and reminders tonight. (of course you’re compelled by gravity and trajectory.. and thanks all the same!)
For us, this – bringing forward one of my touchstones, about the Moon that dwells inside:
XVIII. MOON. The Moon.
reflector of light, shifter of tides.
esoterica, you are the mysteries, traveling into shadows
to discover treasures long held,
awaiting your arrival.
dreams, subconscious, hopes-and-fears.
an initiate into sacred rites uniquely your own.
following a trail left by those who’ve gone before –
you can see now your eyes have adjusted
to a different – reflected – light.
willingness to see into Shadow, walk through
discomfort.. you know it is the way to the next,
to the other side. linger if you wish, for
the light *always* returns. tide always shifts.
move with Awareness – this is a chosen journey!
