Courting Transformation

It is one thing to bang on about eclipsia as a season of change. It is quite another to court your own transformation. The thing about our greatest work in progress is that it tends to happen from the inside out. Its genesis is discomfort. Things don’t sit right within or fit right in your…

Eclipse School

It is said by far more twee folks than me darklings, that if you are going through hell keep going. It strikes me that the same can be said for eclipsia, which has well and truly arrived. And with the kind of cracking clang that has upended the lives of so many in my spheres…

Divine Disruption

Although not yet deep in eclipsia, our divine disruption has begun. Eclipses are traditional harbingers of change. They ripple in every direction through our lives, delivering all the tenses all at once by pinging our past, present and future. They are divinely designed to make us uncomfortable.

Ritual to Forgive and Move On

Forgiveness is powerful medicine. A full moon  is a wonderful time to let go but this ritual can similarly be enacted on the waning phase of the lunar cycle or at the dark moon. Our life yet to come begs us to make peace with our past. Prior to the ritual, think carefully about who you…

Three Days of Darkness :: Unforgiveness

That old chesnut. By its very nature, refusing to forgive hooks us to precisely the stuff we’re trying to overcome and then move far from. We cling resolutely to our anger – and the fight – because it feels like forgiving the transgression condones it and lets the perpetrator off lightly. Our very real desire…
