Last night I had a dream I was drowning but could not actually drown. Some force beyond me prevented me from staying under and it felt like a glistening bubble that kept me floating back up to the surface for a gasp of air.
This morning when I opened instagram (which I promised myself I would not do but then did it anyway) the first video that popped up was of a huge ocean wave crashing into a military base living space in the Marshall Islands, breaking the glass of the windows and doors and flowing in like thunder riding on the wild winds. The people in the base camp did not seem nearly as scared as I was as I sat in bed having survived a dream and watching it from my screen.
I had never heard of the Marshall Islands before, but my dear friend was literally there last week and returned from this smattering of volcanic islands in the central Pacific between Hawaii and the Philippines just yesterday.
I think my real job is just to follow the threads.
After the insta dopamine hit, I felt the more true-to-me-hit to look up the Sabian Symbol for where the source of light stems from for this full moon in Leo.
The stem is from the SUN right now at 5 degrees Aquarius and this is the Symbol:
"A MASKED FIGURE PERFORMS RITUALISTIC ACTS IN A MYSTERY PLAY"
-archetypes of personality
-is someone wearing a mask?
-masks that veil
-reveals where things may not be as they seem
The Full Moon highlights the places we are ready to unmask.
I went even further down my internal initiated rabbit hole this morn, which led me to look up the word for how I heard I was born:
An en caul birth is when a baby is born inside the amniotic sac that has not ruptured, giving them the appearance of being in a bubble. Sometimes, a baby is born with part of the open sac covering their face (a caul birth or veiled birth).
There is a superstition or tale that a baby born en caul can not drown.
Interesting isn't it that sometimes fears that swim around so freely inside our minds are the same exact ones the heart knows can't come true.
Feeling into the Full Moon and what I wanted to share as stone support became the medicine in and of itself. Simple really:
Feel it. You will hear something that feels like a loving yes. Follow that.
Everything shifts when you remember who you are.
