Moon Mindfulness ~IV.2~


It’s crazy, but under this Full Moon, it may be ever so obvious how everyone impresses upon you how unique you are, encouraging you to cultivate your individuality, yet when it comes to the crunch, if you do something outstanding or controversial, they try to squish you, like everyone else, back into the same ridiculous mould.

Your patience for nonsense and hypocrisy among the mainstream may be running thin, and your right to rebel against the world’s stupidity and double standards of those in power is becoming irrepressible and likely to explode at any moment. There is a good reason for this, besides your infamous impatience. The world around you is dying because of too much order, propriety and a falling into mediocrity and complacency.

In any case, you are likely to leave a trail of emotional debris wherever you go. This isn’t necessarily a negative trait. In fact, as much as people despise upsets, they can appreciate how you disrupt their lives, adding a spark of excitement, perhaps shaking up a monotonous routine. Maybe you’ve had enough of organisations for a while, no matter how good their cause, preferring to be a free-agent rabble-rouser.

At least no one will be bored with you around. You may be the catalyst who stirs things up at a dinner party or any social gathering.

Your lesson under this lunation is to listen to the still small voice within, which guides you to spread a bit of positive magic rather than be the little devil who stirs up a storm of mayhem and discord.

Perhaps you can put your shaker-maker tendencies to good use as a leader of your own cause or movement designed to challenge the status quo. After all, if you notice, nature’s accidents are the universe’s way of throwing chance into a system that would otherwise die of too much orderliness. Hurricanes, droughts, floods, and volcanic eruptions are how Mother Nature stirs up the pot to prevent stagnation and putrefaction.

A world without a shake-up would be a world of death. Floods, fires, eruptions, and earthquakes all destroy and renew, kill and create, demolish and replant. So too, riots, revolutions and wars are societies’ ways of throwing chance into their political systems, which are dying of too much orderliness. And like nature’s eruptions, these too destroy and renew, kill and create, demolish and replant.

And so too with individuals. People need a shake-up – the odd earthquake, flood and riot and revolution – as disruptive as it seems. Otherwise, they grow as rigid and unmoving as corpses.

They talk about conspiracies; that someone is out there, someone who’s been manipulating the events, playing puppet master, stirring the pot… that may as well be you!
