Wild Ancestry, Visions of Freedom

October is here with its two bookend full moons, starting on day one with the Aries Full Moon. I see this as an invitation to stand apart from the madness, tune in to what's calling you. With a trine to Venus in Leo, you can be reminded of what's special about you, and possibly gifts or potential you'd like to develop more than you have. With the current angles in play, you might find yourself breaking from "norms" (like the new (ab-normal), authorities, or stifling beliefs. Watch that your rebellion isn't co-opted or steered in unhealthy directions but grounded in what feels authentic to you.
There's so much noise and even the tech in our lives creates dissociation, but this is the season to fall into altered states with your timeless (less distracted) self.
The Aries Full Moon is one to break from the hive mind. It takes a lot of personal will (an Aries specialty) to retain a sense of self with your senses engaged in the real world. A practice like yoga or nature walks can be a daily anchor. Even if you're feeling broken, you can set the intent to honor your uniqueness with time and attention through these coming months.
I recently confirmed the Cherokee lineage that we've always known about, which got me thinking about my visit with Elder Dennis Banks of the Ojibwa tribe back in November of 2011. Founder of the American Indian Movement (AIM), he died in 2017 at age 80. We talked about how in contrast to the protests of the sixties (some of them not co-opted), young white Americans have "gone to sleep," living on the internet, and "while they've been sleeping and playing, somebody's been thieving and conning." He predicted America could take a beating and realize it was bankrupt - financially and spiritually - and then maybe wake-up.
Our differences are constantly exploited by those doing the thieving and conning, but many Americans are wild hybrids with ancestors on all sides of every conflict in this land.
