Today’s Full Moon symbolically marks completion and the preparation for new beginnings, and this last lunar cycle, so full of dream-shattering events, calls us to reflect upon their greater meaning even as we look ahead to a world poised between war and peace, and between planetary balance and planetary crisis.
The Full Moon in November is about the setting of goals and the remembering of purpose, and it applies to you and to me, to humanity and to Gaia – who never forgets. Goal-setting can be limiting and inadequate when used for personal advancement, but to use this time to think gently about what is important to you can help clarify your aims in being alive and thereby accelerate your lifetime achievements. What old patterns of belief and behaviour are you here to unlearn? How strong is your bridge between soul and Spirit – does it need strengthening, or does it not matter to you? How fulfilled are you in your life? What do you need to do next?
The questions for humanity are profound. At what point will we concede, at last, that conflict is not the answer and that there is a better way for the global community to co-exist? When will we wake up to the truth that some things in life are far more important than money and power? Look for a moment at the soul of our group: how damaged, how hurt it is, and yet there is light upon our collective soul, light that is dimmed but waiting to brighten. If, at this time of the Full Moon, you create new, clear goals for humanity, that alone will help to illuminate our world. It is up to all of us to remember our purpose, and to create change. Don’t blame Putin orObama, Corbyn or Assad: if you point any fingers, point them first at yourself.
Prince Charles was right when he spoke this week of the over-riding importance of considering the needs of the Planet above all other worldly considerations, not just because it is a nice, romantic, new-agey thing to do but because food and water shortages, loss of lands and homes, deprivation and forced mass migration resulting from severe planetary imbalances will encourage human despair, aggression and even terrorism as people struggle to survive and anarchists seek to profit from a turbulent situation through exploiting fear and deprivations.
It does not have to be this way: there is time for sense to prevail, if we remember our purpose, and aim to fulfil our key role as guardians of the Planet. Remember the needs of Gaia at this time of the Full Moon. Your awareness of her needs and your intent to help can bring about miracles, and our world is in need of miracles – and of your help.
