Eclipse it Out, baby!
Happy Full Moon Lunar Eclipse!
As the daughter of an avid astrology enthusiast, I’ve been hearing about retrogrades, planet squares, eclipses and new moons for as long as I can remember. Which is why, when my Mom tells me the latest planetary forecast, my response used to always be something like an unexcited and disinterested, “Uh-huh”.
But over the last few years, I’ve started to notice how much of an effect these astrological patterns have, if fact, over both my daily life and over the broader scope of my life’s journey. Today’s full moon lunar eclipse is a powerful energetic portal, and a time when radical, unexpected shifts can take place. If something or someone is not meant to be in your life, then BOOM, things will shake up and leave you with an unexpected, but necessary alteration of your path. Eclipses aren't all bad, and they’re necessary for CHANGE, which is so vital to expansion and growth, however uncomfortable it may feel at the time.
Today I am finally launching my new RammDance website. The old one has been online, and outdated for over a year. I knew that the whole thing needed to be completely redone, but wasn't quite ready to tackle such an overwhelming-sounding project while deep in diapers and nonstop nursing my two babies born 13 months apart. If only these two little cutie-pies could nap at the same time, boy would that make my life easier :0)
As you veteran RammDance followers will see, this website is simpler and more concise, a natural solution to the alternate-baby-napping conundrum. In the switch over the new site, I wanted to find a way to bring over all my old blog posts, 54 of them to be exact, so that they could be on my new website, so all you readers could see what my life used to look like as a dancer and director in Hawaii. But, the problem was that unless I wanted to manually transfer each blog post, it’s just not possible. (Note: I’m sure that it is possible on certain website platforms, but not on the one I use)
After meditating about it, and having thoughts such as NO! I can’t let go of all that work I put into those posts! and How will people know anything about me or my dance company if I don’t have my old blog posts up?, I’ve come to accept that it’s time to truly start fresh, recognizing that where I was in my life two years ago does not reflect where I am today, and that perhaps today’s full moon is the perfect catalyst to eclipse the old if not out of my life, than out of my website.
Here's to letting go and staring fresh, with clarity, vision and purpose!
