In the tradition of the Matrix trilogy, Inception takes on the question of “What is Reality?” This is an incredibly complex dream within a dream within a dream theme that is surprisingly coherent and detailed for such an endeavor. Leonardo De Caprio plays a dream thief of the future, an expert who steals ideas from other people’s subconscious by hacking into their dreams. Now he is asked to plant an idea in business mogul’s subconscious mind through a dreamscape that becomes increasingly complex and requires a whole team to perform. Complicating matters is Leonard’s past and his own out of control subconscious that warps into the planned dreamscapes.
While the story line is the basic hero’s journey, this 3D animation is fabulous for its artistic qualities and powerful images. I was thoroughly entertained by the visuals, the characters, and the creativity of filmmaking. The filmmakers understood and depicted the king role perfectly in both its positive and negative…
The main theme for April is POWER.
This month you will get to look at all things related to power. All of your old patterns, belief systems, reactions, experiences, trust or mistrust, resistance, desire, access; all of it is up for observation, recapitulation, clearing, re-defining, clarifying and re-negotiating.
Spring Equinox is Monday, March 19 at 11:15 PM Mountain Daylight Time.
This is a solid and earthy time for grounding your intentions and setting things up for the next few months. Be sure you take some time to honor the spring equinox as a powerful time of birth and renewal,and to think about what you want as opposed to what you think you should want or you think others expect you to want. Revisit your life at this point and ask yourself whether you are just going through the motions of your life day to day without truly being present or enjoying the experience, or whether you are present, engaged, grateful and inspired. You may get some practical clarity that will manifest in positive change.
The Full Moon is Thursday, March 8 at 2:41 AM Mountain Standard Time.
This full moon is a perfect opportunity to make a plan and commit to taking some action towards manifesting. Start with a fresh plan even if it has elements of a plan from the past. What is it that you want right now at this moment for yourself? How are you going to get there? You do not need to know all the steps, just the first one. Beware of the tendency to look towards others to do it for you. There is no power in that. This is a time to make your own bid for power. Spirit is certainly listening and if your bid is from the heart and not from ego, and if you are ready for it, it will happen sooner than you can imagine. Remember to practice patience as all things come in their own time. Take action but don’t micromanage!
The main theme for March is Opportunity.
Whew, we have managed to get through January and February with a few instinctive and emotional scrapes and bruises and have landed into the more grounded, certain and stable influence of March. We are in a period now of practical transformation where how we approach what we know we will have to do, will determine how it all comes out. The practical side is important as well as addressing your physical environment and the theme of bringing the body along.
The New Moon is Tuesday, February 21 at 3:35 PM Mountain Standard Time.
This new moon is a time to recharge. You will feel like resting, getting more sleep, taking all the movement down to a standstill. If you have been struggling with something that has you constricted and confused, this would be the time to let go, unweight your position and give it over to spirit so you can turn towards another, new and better direction. Whatever it is, let it go. Whatever has you sleepless, let it go. Whatever you are trying to problem solve with your mind, let it go.
The Full Moon is Tuesday, February 7 at 2:57 PM Mountain Standard Time.
If anything is really stuck in your life right now it will show up in its full glory. Use the influence of the full moon to identify what it is and to move something that will begin a shift in the situation. It could be more communication in a stagnant relationship, it could be changing something in your work or it could be finally making a decision you have been putting off. Honor this movement with moving something around in your immediate environment. At the least get some fresh flowers for your home and maybe clean out your fridge. Most of all, have a little humor regarding all the seductive drama around you and practice some neutrality even if what is up for you in your life is difficult. See this time as an opportunity instead of something you must put up with and survive. Enjoy!
The main theme for February is Keep it Moving.
The words that came to describe February were so numerous that I finally came to rest on the one theme that will be the most helpful. The other aspects and themes will be addressed in the discussion of the month and will emerge also in the full and new moon updates.
The New Moon was at 12:42 AM Mountain Standard Time on Monday January 23 and we are still in its influence.
This is a time when depression could hit or you could become overwhelmed with the disruption and destabilization around you. This is a good day to pull your energy in and focus only on the tasks at hand. Don’t get distracted by others and their process. You will likely have many things on your plate. They can all wait. Take time for yourself and yourself only even if it is just to watch a bad movie. Stay out of judgment about events and situations, as they are all just temporary. Take a break.
