Today we celebrate not only the first day of winter, but we also celebrate the passing of the New Moon; passing from Waning to Waxing. In this time we stop letting go and start drawing in.
Have you taken the time to take a step back and just watch yourself?
Fox joins us in today’s spread offering the message to step back and take a close look at what you have hidden from yourself. Remember that your beloved sees more in you than you see in yourself. This is the time to draw in self-discovery of where you fit in your relationship with your beloved.
It is time to put courtship aside, embracing your own emotions and feelings. Being honest to yourself about your true feelings in this relationship with your beloved will bring you to the next step in the journey that awaits you.
An uncomfortable feeling is not an enemy. It’s a gift that says, “Get honest; inquire.” We reach out for alcohol, or television, or credit cards, so we can focus out there and not have to look at the feeling. And that’s as it should be, because in our innocence we haven’t known how. So now what we can do is reach out for a paper and a pencil, write thought down, and investigate.
As we all are ever shifting in who we are, in this time we are offered the opportunity to discover our authentic self in relationship; and who we are in this moment. We may discover that what we thought is truly not. This is a time to be open and true to ourselves, drawing in the discovery of our own expectations in relationship. Making these discoveries of expectations; exploring them internally before we share them with our beloveds will be the smoothest path to deeper blending, opening the door for the shared discoveries to come. This is certainly a time of great self-awareness, and also perhaps great discovery for our beloveds, as they may be traveling much the same road as we are in this moment.
In what ways are you trying to please your beloved that you actually wish for them to please you?
Is this a desire or expectation that has remained un- voiced?
As we come back to Fox we see again the things that have been hidden in the trees and in the leaves. There is so much to discover in this time of opening and drawing in, and soon it will be time to share those discoveries with your beloved again.
Blending in with the trees and the leaves I whisper today’s mantra:
I draw in my own expectation
Being true to my desires
Ready to discover
Waiting to share
