1.10.2020

Ten, in Numerology, signifies the completion of a cycle. Tonight, the first full moon of the New Year is the last in Cancer, completing the cycle of introspection, revelation, and intense emotion. More meaningful, for me, is the timing of the beginning of moon in Cancer, a turning within that focused the need and desire to SELF-CARE.

Where was I in July 2018?

I was moving here! To the most beautiful place I’ve ever lived, a home that hugs me every day. A year-and-a-half on, I’m still drunk on love of this place. I’m healed here.

In July 2018, I put my sweet Cricket to rest. I felt her so strongly the moment I remembered the move. Going within, looking deeply, and mending my shattered spirit was exactly the intention I brought here with me.

My Cricket is with me today during an epic, rare astrological event: Perigee and an ECLIPSE! The Super Blood Wolf Moon.

Of course you’ve come, my darling mystery! My kitten, black as night, whose mind I could never quite know. Of course you come in moonlight energy, Little Black Magicat, my glorious dark eclipse. Shadow Cat, hushed like a whisper.

I feel her!

She was at once impenetrable and plain. She loved me – I knew that – but I never could unravel her mystery. “Tell me what I can’t know,” I begged in regular cuddle refrains. “My Enigma, wrapped in bacon, dipped in chocolate.”

Oh, how she purred and lolled into me! Oh, I miss her big body and simple sweetness.

What an auspicious start to an amazing New Year! Tomorrow is 1.11. New Beginnings.
