The Wisdom of La Luna

New Weekly Post on Following the Wisdom of La Luna by Edveeje Fairchild, Director of Operations “What is it to be a woman in the 21st Century on the living planet Earth in the Universe as we now understand it?” This question is the golden chariot that carries me across the arching universe of my life.  Asking it has led me on an unexpected journey both into my own soul-centric depths and outward into the realm of quantum physics. Most recently I have been exploring the actual universe in which I live and realize we have so many unquestioned daily experiences that do not reflect the reality of our universe.  For instance, we do not look up into the night sky at the Moon.  We are hanging from our feet looking down at the Moon.  The Sun does not rise or set.  Seasons do not come and go. We tilt and rotate. I live off-grid in a forest nestled in a mountain cove and during the New Moon, the forest is pitch black; to my human eye, there is no Moon.  And yet the Moon is always there even when we don’t see it.  It is just that it “rises and sets” with the Sun. The more I understand the universe in which I actually live, the more I understand that so many elements within it provide blueprints for the unfolding of our own creative energies.  The universe is both ‘out there’ and the universe is also ‘in here.’ When naturally understood and perceived, the Moon is an exquisite mentor and guide in the unfolding of our own creative feminine energies.  Like a pregnant woman, its major phases are infused with the creative, gestation, and birthing process: The New Moon is a period of inspiration and heightened intuition that combine to create a psychic container for visioning and dreaming; a time of seeding potential and crafting intentions for the coming month.  The Waxing Half Moon (1st Quarter) is a time of growth that helps develop the visions and dreams seeded at the New Moon.  The Full Moon ushers in a period of manifestation and is a time of gratitude and celebration for what has waxed to fullness and been birthed in the month.  The Waning Half Moon (4th Quarter) ushers in a time of reflection and assessment about where we have been and what we have manifested in our creative wombs; this phase leads naturally to a time of transformation, course correction, and cleansing that prepares the psychic womb for a new month of creativity. This month as I look up through the thinning forest canopy at a dark night sky during the New Moon, I know she is there just beyond the dark veil and I am asking myself in what ways I can follow the creative energy of the new unfolding lunar month.  What dreams and visions do I want to seed for the next month?  What am I most longing for and how can I more fully align myself with the joy, beauty, and creativity that makes life worth living? Join me on my weekly journey with the Moon as she guides and informs this next creative month.  Each week I will post my ‘Lunar Log’ experiences, share my questions, and invite us all into a deeper exploration of what it is to be a woman in the 21t Century on the living planet Earth in the Universe as we now understand it. edveeje1_thumbEdveeje is the Director of Operations for TreeSisters.  She lives off-grid on ten acres of raw mountain land in the Mother Forest of Southern Appalachia where she is passionate about the power of place and how our relationship to Nature can infuse, inspire, and call forth, not only our souls, but our part in the Great Turning.
