The Week of 11/23/2020

This upcoming week* is partly about:

-expanding our ability to dissolve the appeal of an illusion by holding all of our ‘selves’ in a warm embrace

-building the necessary medicine to heal any shock of discovering what no longer has a place in our lives

-building the necessary imagination through which the discovery of new values or desires can turn into living realities

-building the tolerance and diversity of perspectives necessary for daily living in society to coexist with the deep, irrational, uncompromising needs of the unconscious

-building the faith that behind primal fears of nonexistence lies another existence of something that hasn’t yet been discovered

-expanding our imaginative responses to our dark moods and secret selves

-expanding our mental agility to see our journey from different vantage points and compassionately acknowledge how far we’ve come

-expanding our ability to ground the imagination of how our values have been rejuvenated, situating our *applied imagination* between the higher conscious upper world and the dark instinctual underworld

*Waxing moons, every month, are about building and expanding certain priorities. The current waxing moon cycle represents the growth of what was planted during last weekend’s new moon in scorpio. Themes of regeneration, death and resurrection, primal desires and instinctual forces seed the quality of what we are building & expanding upon from now until next weekend.
