The Moon is a luminary, but she does not emit her own light. Her glow relies upon the light of the Sun which reflects her image to us on earth. The Moon is connected to the female principle of Spirit, to the water element & she governs the realm of the emotions. The Moon’s energy causes things to surface from the sub-conscious mind into the conscious mind & this will affect our emotions. A full moon amplifies this activity.
The Owl Spirit empowers us to enter the moonlight realm so that we can awaken to our life’s purpose; to consciously remember our timeless unconditional Christ nature. She has a symbolic connection to the Divine feminine & is deeply connected to wisdom & intuitive knowledge.
The Owl guides us to listen to the voices of our feelings, to open to our hearts inner wisdom & rescue the parts of our being trapped in the shadows. She invites us to see with clarity the darkness that lies beneath the surface of our being, to see the things that we have kept hidden from ourselves, the things that we wish to deny. She encourages us to see this deception in ourselves & others, to see through our perceptions & false self with eyes of truth! She shows us that we must navigate & pierce our way through this darkness into the reality of who we truly are by surrendering to love: seeing in the dark beyond our wounds & suffering.
She teaches us that we can heal the wounds of our hearts by exposing our darkness to the Sunlight within our own hearts, so that we can step into truth, love & freedom & still the waters of our Souls.
