Originally I’d planned that my small hiatus from blogging would go until the end of April! However, try as I might, I can’t ignore the importance of this eclipse. While New and Full Moons always signify beginnings and completions in some fashion, eclipses ‘power-boost’ these energies . The Scorpio Full Moon on April 25th illuminates energetic patterns and behaviors holding us back from growing in our evolution. As such, these elements need to go. There’s a building intensity globally, locally and personally, to dissolve that which is outmoded in spite of the fiercest of resistances as new energetic patterns and behaviors push hard for incorporation into our internal databanks, waiting to be actioned. With the full moon opposing the Sun in Taurus, we’re reminded to nurture a fundamental relationship to our physical world, its beauty and what we most value.
When Dr. Edward Bach discovered the final 19 flower remedies to complete his famous 38 Bach remedies, Aspen and Walnut were among them. He identified this group as I’ve written previously, as possessing a ‘higher spirituality’ functioning at a higher vibration than those remedies already discovered.
Among the key characteristics of Aspen is that it allays our fears of going into unknown territory. So often we are seduced in the belief, “better the devil you know than the one you don’t.” However, as I’ve also written previously, the devil we know can take us right down the road of self-destruction, whether it be the result of a bad relationship, job or other life choices. Aspen provides us the courage and faith needed to venture into uncharted waters, while Bach’s remedy, Walnut is the remedy to help us make changes that we need to make.
Classically this remedy helps us to, in the words of the well-known author Dr. Leo Buscaglia, “ cut the toxic ties that bind.” It helps us to get our foot over the threshold, to let go of those things, patterns and behaviors that no longer serve us well. All of these considerations are a tall order, as our egos never want to ‘let go.’ This said, there’s a caveat in mind/body/spirit philosophy… “that which you resist the most, is that which you need to let go of.” Before you’re brought to your knees in resistance, reach for Dr. Bach’s Aspen and Walnut…it bears repeating, you’ll feel better in the morning!
