Full Moon Update: Own Your Harvest
Full moon greetings, and welcome to October -- one of my very favorite months of the year. In Brooklyn the air has begun to cool and crisp and I miss my twilight walks in the wilds of Prospect Park...here in Northern California the air is slightly orange again today as new fires have hit Napa and Sonoma Counties, but I was able to hit the trail for a run among the crunchy oak leaves and erupted acorns, and the snaking river alongside my path.
Last week I wrote about the Autumnal Equinox and the season of the Queen, and it was like a bell got rung deep inside of me. I spent some time exploring the Queen archetype several years ago, when Pixie Campbell and I ran a tele-circle called "Money and the Four Feminine Archetypes". I resonate deeply with the Queen's qualities of sovereignty, maturity, boundaries, mastery of self, responsibility and devotion to her realm.
As today's full moon is the Harvest Moon, it's a good time to look at your own personal harvest with appreciation and spiritual ownership. This is about gratitude and also, in the energy of the Queen archetype, it's about surveying the abundance of your realm and claiming your responsibility to steward that abundance, for it is a manifestation of Source and all of it belongs to the Universe.
Some questions you can ponder today:
What is coming to fruition in my life right now?
Where can I see and appreciate the fruits of my labor, of my nurturing and tending?
Is there anything I need to do to ensure my harvest is full and abundant?
Do I have clarity about how to best use the abundance I've gathered, for the highest good of all those in my care?
Are there any preparations I need to make before winter arrives?
WAKING THE QUEEN
Being the energy worker that I am, I've started to consciously work on embodying the energy signature of the Queen archetype. It is powerful work. And I'd like to share it with you. So I'm very pleased to announce:
Waking the Queen is a 7-week tele-course beginning Sunday, November 1st -- the day after Samhain or Halloween, and the halfway point between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice. As we round into the darker half of Autumn, let's gather virtually to explore and learn how to embody the Queen in our own lives.
The entire course is delivered via email, so you can tend to it at your own pace.
Each Sunday you'll receive an email containing the materials for that week's session: a video containing a discussion or interview with a queen in my life; an inquiry worksheet; and a guided meditation.
We'll cover everything from finances to mothering, sex to activism. It'll be a deep dive into the many ways we can invite the Queen archetype into our lives.
