Full Buck Moon

 

 

Full Buck Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Buck Moon at 2* Aquarius will culminate July 25, 2010 9:37pm pdt/July 26 12:37am edt (almanac). This enchanting summer moon is a time to make plans for the future. To sit under the moonlight pondering, closing your eyes and making wishes. And in our inner knowing, it is time to become like the butterfly. In our lifetime will we become the butterfly instead of the caterpillar.  Look at the caterpillar with it’s 3 sets of legs and 8 eyes, it leisurely slinks along the ground, drags the earth and slowly gets to where it wants to go until it uses it’s ability to transform. Once in the cocoon, growing, deep in thought and plans for the change. Emerging brand new, forming beauty and wonder, flying and no longer crawling. The butterfly flies with grace and easily lands on soft flowers instead of dirt. The metaphor is much like us as humans, we go slowly and deliberately feeling half blind at times with narrow ideas and untried measures until we soon get tired of not taking some steps to right our lives. Knowing that we must change into our best and highest selves, we must strive toward securing our lives. And once we are a butterfly to spread light and love to anyone in our path. We all need assurance and the will to accomplish. To try new things. A butterfly tastes with it’s feet. How do we get to butterfly status. You don’t want to wait till you die to know, you want it now…on earth.

When you dream, daydream or hope about anything that could be a possibility in the world, easily let yourself be free. Your mind is a powerful tool. There are times when you will only see colorful illusions, but allow for some intervals of rest and play. When you sorce and pray, let your vision be for real things upon the earth. Your intentions become your world.

Dreaming and Wishing doesn’t mean we’ll get what we want, but it certainly can’t hurt to create a mindset for goals . With all the changes that happen around us, we want to change into our best selves. To become the butterfly…

“I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man” ~ Chuang Tzu (The most significant of China’s early interpreters of Taoism, 389-286 BC)

One thought on “Full Buck Moon

  1. I needed this gentle push/reminder to journal all about the Dreaming, which has increased over the past 2 weeks. I have often considered my current state to being inside the crysalis; how appropriate for you to speak to just that.

    Many thanks.
