Full Singing Moon

Full Singing Moon

By Tara Sutphen

The Full Singing Moon at 7* Aries will culminate September 29, 2012 8:19pm PDT/11:19pm EDT (farmers almanac).

Last month we had August’s Full “Blue” Dog Days Moon, the second moon of the month. We were to focus on “a real time” of introspection, undo the unshakable, question unhappiness, sorrow and regrets. And now at our Full Singing Moon we are to begin to rebuild our relationships with others. No more hiding or “crying over spilled milk”. We’re to open our hearts to our friends and families, and accept the support and gifts they bring. Recognition and appreciation can go a long way to soothe another’s soul. Abide by the tasks at hand with some camaraderie and good manners. We know how we like to be treated and we open up to regard others the same way. We can get stuck in our everyday routine. We forge ahead without considering time and effort toward others we care for. We can miss entire sections of our own or others development, being too preoccupied with either being too responsible or immature. Many of us bungle perfectly good relationships and friendships by discounting they will always be in place to “pick up where they leave off”.

This is not to say we should be okay at wasting big chunks of our time in idle pursuits, there is balance in all actions and reactions. We all need rest as well as to be productive. If we make a conscious shift to make effort with those we care about and to act upstanding rather than misgiving. Not only shifting our interpretation in our minds but in our interactions, we find fulfillment. Becoming less fearful and fretful, if we act generous we can form easy alliances. We need to aspire toward contentment at work and in the home. Constructive association can improve our days. We all know what happens when we allow chaos to reign supreme. We feel inferior and make bad decisions. Mistakes can easily be made and take a measurable amount of time to undo. No matter how careful we try to be, we all seem to accumulate these blunders. All conflict, anger and worry will pass in time. And if we can learn to figure out ourselves instead of misunderstand, we become better for it.

Whether we put our best foot forward in social situations or not, we find ourselves having to deal with others. When we surround ourselves with compatible and like minded people we tend to flow in our lives. Of course this isn’t always possible, especially within family structures. To look at the compatibility instead of the differences can be one good way to overcome uneasiness. You can never go wrong acting thoughtful and being kind.

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” ~Lao Tzu (Chinese Taoist Philosopher, founder of Taoism, wrote “Tao Te Ching” (also “The Book of the Way”). 600 BC-531 BC)
