Today we have a double celebration, yeee!!! International Women’s Day and Full Moon in Virgo!!!
Congratulations to all of us, to the women who read this blog and the ones who don’t, the ones I know personally and the ones I don’t too.
What does this day mean to you? What does it mean to be a woman? How do you celebrate it? How do you value your feminine spirit? And what are your own relationships with women like?
Today I ask myself how we can expand this feeling of love, happiness and sisterhood to the remaining 364 days of the year. How can we bring this feeling to the sisters we don’t know? To the woman we find on the road, on the bus, in the supermarket, in the queue to the cash point, in the office?
Living in a masculine world has created and unhealthy competition among women, plenty times we are full of prejudices, jealousy and envy towards our sisters. Today, I want us to reflect on the sister who makes us feel like this and think of her as you, see your own reflection in her. We are all mirrors, so take a good look at yourself! She has the same body, the same ideas, the same fears. Help her, hold her, understand her, have compassion towards her, she is your own feminine spirit that yearns and looks for validation.
Today we can change this idea and celebrate us, dance together as one. Let’s carry this feeling of sisterhood to other circles and not isolate ourselves in a small circle where we feel safe and comfortable. Let’s get out there and explore, because I assure you, that in that place where you weren’t looking you will find another women yearning for the same things than you do.
In the book The Double Goddess, Vicky Noble talks about the feminine duality and how this imagery of the double Goddesses can represent the two opposite sides of our cycle. One represents menstruation and the other one ovulation. This is exactly what I would love us to notice when we meet another sister, another Goddess. We could very well be in opposite sides of the cycle, however we are part of the same cycle, we are one.
Today we have a full moon in Virgo, an earth sign and a feminine sign! This moon asks us to take action, to reap what we have sown, to leave once and for all the things that no longer serve us and are not align with our true life purpose. In the old days Virgo was related to
Ishtar, Innana and Demeter so we can say that these three goddess represent the Trinity so what else can we ask for in this day!
Today is time to take firmer steps towards our goals, steps that will require thinking and planning. Virgo makes things tangible and the full moon is always a time of celebration, of action, revelation and inspiration. Wait for that wonderful idea; reap your dreams y see the positive results that this day can bring into your life.
I wish love in your hearts today and every day and don't forget to smile to that strange woman as she walks past!
Much love x
