Shadow whispers here
Quiet soft contemplation
Rest in peace for now
Morning… Moving into a Hermit kinda day; a ‘9’ kinda day. A pretty morning kinda day in my zone.
‘9’, is the number for bringing-it-all-together: tying up lose ends, completing that project, that plan, that thought, so you can move on. Being stuck in ‘9’ energy can keep things from coming to completion or missing out on an opportunity that needs more action and less pondering. And… pondering and quiet time is essential in the ‘9/18’ especially if this is your birthday and you have a whole year to be with this energy.
Hermit ‘energy’ needs time to ponder and recluse; to gather energy in quietude and meditation so that there is more energy to have and more light to shine., more wisdom to gather and share. There isn’t a time limit on the need for silence and gathering. And… once this time of quietude finds completion, Hermit energy is ready to give back and share what wisdom which was held in the shadows of life and is now ready to shine it out for others to see and feel.
With the Moon as your ally, take a look in those shadows of yours and drag that unfinished business into the light. The Moon, speaks to cycles, the flow of feelings and thoughts that provoke those feelings, the shadows of life, how you reflect light, and the fullness of that radiance.
The Hermit, calls to your inner wisdom, lights it up and lets it shine within and out. He/she invites you to pay attention to what you know and how you might expand on that spiritually.
If today is your birthday, these are questions to consider for the whole year. Grab one or all and see what stirs you up. Change the wording around to make it feel right for you. As you ponder these thoughts and questions, please take a moment to sit quietly and breathe. Let your breath guide you into a quiet place for the questions to have a moment to brew and shimmer. Invite your wisdom to be your guide. And remember, if overwhelm sets in, take a very little step. You have as much time as you need.
