☼✶☽ The last Dakini Day of 2017 comes before a New Sagittarius Moon on the 18th December (conjunct the Galactic centre); and Solstice, the longest night/day of the year (depending upon which hemisphere you are) is also just over a week away. A dark moon around the time Spirit Sun changes its emphasis of Light compounds the need for profound reflection – and rest (for the North). At Sol’s turning point on 21st December, seasons begin to change as the light again returns to Earth's North, and diminishes in the Southern hemisphere.
The next five days are known as ‘Great Yin’, when the feminine Yin's earthy darkness and comforting soul encourages within us all the gentle female qualities of understanding, fairness and compassion. The sensitive Goddess is aware of the plight of others. She radiates feminine principles which soften our hearts, all the while being able to remain cool and rational, to care for others who are suffering or in pain.
☼ ✶☽ A glorious sky dancing Red Goddess generously brings love, kindness to every heartmind. As the waning Moon in peaceful and social Libra, now harmoniously activates Spirit Sun in convivial and scholarly Sagittarius, for the Lights concentrate the ‘higher mind’ to find emotional and spiritual balance through philosophy, culture and beauty.
This is a wonderful time to be with friends, to reflect upon the passing year and contemplate future plans
☼ ✶☽ Today is also 'Lama Tsongkhapa day', one of the most important days of the Tibetan Galugpa tradition, celebrating its founder 🙏☀️🌍
Wishing everyone a very happy Dakini Day!
With many thanks to Soyolmaa-Davaakhuu for the painting 'At Night' for lovely Red Goddess. ॐ_/\_
