I was lying in bed the other night after a particularly tiring weekend. I had been feeling emotional that day and I was so thankful for the moment at which my head met the pillow.
As I was in that half awake/half asleep state I came up with the title of a blog post:
Fear of Change = Fear of Death
Not the most uplifting of titles I agree!
Though I have gone through a lot of changes in the last few years, I still experience fear surrounding them, especially when it is not something that I wanted a change in.
I have to remind myself at these moments that when something truly changes, it will feel like a death. The old way of doing is over and something new will take its place.
Often the fear is not about the new thing so much as about the space between the old and the new, the uncertainty of what the new will look like.
Sometimes I feel as though this blog is a lot about that dark time. About how to get through the things that need getting through.
This New Moon falls in the sign of Scorpio – symbolized by the card of Death in the Tarot.
So unsurprisingly at this time, things are going to feel a little (or a lot) intense.
This is a time where you may feel as though something has died in your life.
You will feel strongly that a situation has truly ended and may be feeling quite a lot of discomfort about what that means for you.
Under this New Moon we will not fully yet be able to see what is in front of us, but we will be well aware that something/someone is behind us.
This does not have to be a drastic as it may seem. You may realize that something has died, and this very thing may be reborn in due course, in a new way, a better way.
It really is a win-win, whatever has left is paving way for much better.
Lots of love Txx
