NATURAL LAW with Helene Collard
I acknowledge the original custodians of this land the Widjabul People of the Bundjalung Nation.
Greetings Northern Rivers and beyond. The Mayan Bat Moon which took us through most of August was indeed turbulent and intense, a period of rebirth usually is. As we emerge from the fruitful Dark, this month we face challenges and have opportunity to overcome obstacles. ‘Intuitive Action’ is required to successfully navigate these elevated energies, with the second half of September feeling a little like a new beginning. The elements of Water and Earth hold space for us during this cycle.
The Gift of Challenge
Mayan Moon 2 – Lunar Moon of the Scorpion, asks us to face challenges and overcome obstacles. Remember challenges are gifts, our keys to growth. The first 10 days of September contain amplified and activating energies that could go either way: 1) chaos OR 2) you can target what needs to be sorted. If you get caught up in the nitty-gritty of something, zoom out to the big picture and polarise the situation. You see the key here is to gain self-awareness of two opposing forces (the challenge) – ‘on one hand there’s X and on the other there’s Y’ and from this place of perspective, you are asked to act with integrity and purpose. Yes be on the front foot when facing and overcoming your challenges, be assertive, for now is not the time for complacency.
The Collective Shift
This is nothing less than a shake-up of your life, in order to create a new social world. What we have hidden will be exposed, what we have denied, will be shown. The Scorpion Moon follows the Bat’s rebirth energy to facilitate profound and long-term restructuring. Yes these accelerated energies make big life changes possible, as well as dramatic, unexpected and unpredictable events. So prepare to utilise this energy by staying centred and clear.
But what does ‘centred and clear’ mean? Find a quiet space and sit or lay comfortably. Place your left hand on the centre of your chest, fingers parallel to the ground. Inhale slowly and deeply, then suspend the breath in and raise the chest. Retain it as long as possible. Exhale smoothly, gradually and completely. When breath is totally out, hold it out for as long as possible. Continue for 3-31 mins. To end inhale and exhale strongly 3x and relax. This is a kundalini centring and clearing exercise and is recommended before deciding how to act during this Moon cycle.
Water & Earth
The current Pisces/Virgo polarity means increased emotions and the importance of connecting with the cleansing, life-giving intelligence of Water. There is space within this month to explore your imagination and dream ... with your feet firmly rooted in the Earth. Indeed the second half of September indicates a new beginning of sorts, where you can contemplate what it would look like if you reached your full Divine potential. Evolution is Natural Law, of course we have evolved as a species, but we also evolve on a micro level every day, month and year. From 13 September, look to grow yourself consciously, evolve and deepen your love and connection for the Earth.
And Finally ...
On September 20 we enter the Deer Moon of Service where it’s time to think about how you are being of service to your loved ones and the world? More about that next month. So for now, allow the flow of nature to guide you through the challenges, analyse yourself truthfully and open yourself to clear revelations about your past and the chance to release and clear old issues. Now is a good time to undertake a life review to assist you in the self-regeneration and reinvention that comes later in the month.
