Today is the first day of Kat McNally’s August Moon. I have participated in her Reverb projects in December as well as her April Moon offerings, so it was a no brainer for me sign up for August Moon again this year. it comes at just the right time for me, I believe. There is a lot swirling around in my head and heart these days, and I’m looking forward to using the opportunity that August Moon gives me to work through those things that are rattling around inside of me.
Today’s prompt is about setting an intention, which is interesting to me, because as I’ve been reading the posts that have led up to today, I’ve noticed that the Universe is prompting me to make some major change and think about where it is that I really want to be, what I really want to do with my life.
Set an intention. On this first day together, in the light of the beautiful full moon, I invite you to share what is it that you want to explore over the next two weeks. In particular, I invite you to consider the crossroads at which you find yourself, in any aspect of your life.
I think this probably couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I had an interview a week ago for a position that would have brought me home. The interview went well, and when I walked out with the person in charge of the hiring, he told me that I would definitely hear from him within the week because they wanted to move quickly. I wanted the call by Friday, and it didn’t come, which means to me that it is another position that I have too much education for and not enough matching experience. Too expensive of a hire to take a chance on when all things are created equal.
I told a friend a month or so ago that I was coming to the realization that I was going to probably have to create my own opportunities, forge my own path. And I am terrified. I don’t know exactly how to do that. I’ve reached out to a Coach, and I’m still letting her words soak in. Some of the things that she suggested have resonated with me, but more than that, when I opened myself up to the possibility of creating my own opportunities, I’ve been getting signs from the Universe about the possibilities. I am not at all sure that I’m ready, and there are a million reasons why now is not the right time.
There are also a million reasons why now is the right time. I feel like I’m rapidly approaching a now-or-never point in my life, and I don’t want to let more opportunities pass me by.
So. My intention for #AugustMoon14 is to be open to the possibilities as they come, choosing the right ones for me, and to not let the fear overwhelm me, keeping me stuck. It is a tall order. In fact, just getting to this point today has given me a massive headache, and I’d love to lay back down and rest, put it all off for another day. That is not going to help me. I am hopeful that the work I do in the next three weeks helps me get clearer about the path that is in front of me and how to actually step forward.
