In the dark of December

In the dark of December.”

Spirituality & Health: Fall and Winter: The Seasons of Divine Feminine Energy
by Julie Peters
Learn how to embrace Divine Feminine energy this autumn and winter as the days grow long and cold.
When the weather turns colder and darker in the Northern Hemisphere, we enter moon season. This is a time when many of us find ourselves experiencing a moon that rises earlier in the evening and stays up later in the mornings as more darkness descends on our day. It’s also a season of darkness, death, and spirit work. All these aspects are in alignment with Divine Feminine energy.

LOVE LIFE AND YOURSELF
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
— Lao Tzu
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.
We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.
“It matters not Who you love, Where you love, Why you love, When you love, Or how you love, It matters only that you love.”
— John Lennon
“Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?”
— Frank Scully

Restlessness and boredom could slow you down and take you off on some unintended tangent. If you can’t break free of the usual routine today, do what’s necessary and perhaps schedule more delicate tasks for another time when it will be easier to be precise and attend to details. Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.
