Shadow dancing, seasonal shifts and completion of a cycle.
Welcome to a new season, Spring if you are in the southern hemisphere and the energy of the New Year!
The upcoming New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Virgo is a powerful energetic gateway and opportunity for learning, healing, and growth that will ultimately position you to do something great with your life.
BTW the next moon in Virgo is in March 2017 – so where do you want to be in 6 months time?
My rising sign & moon is in Virgo, so I know what it feels like to stop going into the shadows of addiction to workaholism and perfectionism and details. It’s all in the small details and that often looks like I am being overly critical and incessant in my questioning for more information.
What better time (for me the time is always now),
to invite you into shadow dancing so together we can clear unresolved trauma and broken records and explore with deep curiosity how we get stuck in the stories and instead of seeing them as eternal suffering, identify them, integrate the child parts from feeling into the emotions and receive the gift of the past experiences – not always easy when they are unpleasant or life threatening, but really going into the shadows, the blind spots and black holes and looking at where spirit is guiding us now.
Universe has a stake in us too, to remove the perception of obstacles real or imagined by connecting to the land, to the animals to our supporting people so we can live fulfilled, happy and free of the past stories. We cannot live in the present when we are checking back into the past for all the reasons and justifications why we need to be very afraid of the future. Or we go so far into the future we feel paralysed to create in the moment to moment of how life moves through us.
“To err is human, to forgive divine.”
This old adage contains mountains of truth and yet we are often our own harshest critics.
Virgo is about doing the real-world, behind the scenes work of getting stuff done. It’s mundane, on the opposite side of the zodiac from the divine inspiration and transcendent oneness of Pisces. Not only that, but Virgo can be super critical, which doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun.
So why is Virgo so important, and what is the big shift that is possible around this Solar Eclipse?
Virgo is supremely important to us because we ARE human. We are here to roll up our sleeves and get messy. And whether or not what we’re doing is all that important the only way to get anything done is to have the humility to step in and try.
It’s how we learn. It’s the only way to get good at anything.
Because Virgo is about detail. It’s about striving for perfection through the ability to notice what isn’t right yet and continue to make adjustments until it IS right.
Virgo is also about healing, because it’s the ability to see what needs improving, and take steps to make it better.
So the opportunity during this eclipse is to awaken your ability to notice what could be improved upon, and make it better so it can ultimately serve the divine spark of transcendent possibility.
In short, you can’t create your masterpiece without technical skill, attention to detail, and focusing on the mundane details that must come together to create a great work.
So don’t get hung up on your mistakes or what is wrong. Every “failure” is an opportunity to learn, to improve, and ultimately to become who you need to be to create your masterpiece.
This eclipse reminds us that you can’t grow a garden without rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands in the dirt.
So what better time to get out of stories, go into the shadows and stop denying everything as the light in you

When you get out of the stories, the blind spots, you’ll finally be able to get CLARITY on the very difficult yet important questions in your life, like…
- “What is my purpose?”
- “Why am I here?”
- “How can I improve my relationship with my partner?”
- “How can I find love?”
- “How do I get more focus to get things done?”
- “How can I make more money?”
- “How can I stop feeling so lonely?”
- “How can I love myself?”
- “How can I take better care of my family?”
After all as Alan Watts says:
The whole point of the dancing is the dance!
Alan Watts compares life to music:
“one doesn’t make the end of the composition the point of the composition. If that were so, the best conductors would be those who played fastest; and there would be composers who only wrote finales. People [would] go to concerts only to hear one crashing chord—because that’s the end” .
The invitation of SHADOW DANCING is, instead, to appreciate life as a movement, a constantly shifting dance, savored in every moment. The spiritual journey is also not a search for a distant concept called enlightenment. The essence of the journey is in what is, the essence of dancing is the dance itself, expressing what is now and forever. Let’s savor every precious moment of this amazing journey and appreciate it fully.

I look forward to dancing into September and a beautiful life with you – let’s make this precious life count.
