I was taking a walk on this fine Pisces Moon day and saw an artist friend who lives down the road. “Hey there,” I said, “what are you doing on the upside of this mountain?” “Ah, good to see you! I’ve been working so hard I needed a break so I walked up to the lake.” “Lake?” I asked. “Yeah, the lake up over the hill, right after the ranch.” Ooooh, I didn’t know we had a lake nearby. I thanked him for the new piece of information.
It struck me that other artists might be feeling the same need for release too, today. It being a waning last quarter Moon in Pisces and all. I had planned on going up to my favorite tree, sit under it’s green canopy, drink in the colors and ground.
Which brings me to the subject of color -Â which Neptune retrograde has brought to my attention. I had a wonderful discussion with my friend Lise over this past holiday weekend about the effect color has on the spirit. I mentioned that a healer I used to frequent advocated looking at gardens and trees through special industrial prismsÂ -Â as an energeticÂ balanceÂ forÂ lowÂ immune and lifeÂ force.Â Â And wow, did my vitality lift!Â Â SheÂ told me she hadÂ recently attended an art exhibitÂ where images seemed to float in prisms, and she found this enriching, too.
So I went to my tree and watched the colors grow in vibrance and numinosity. By the time I left, I was mistaking leaves in my path for flecks of gold…
Hmmm…has anyone else noticed their colors brighten over the past couple weeks?
