When the moon shows her face
Admire it with love and grace
But remember on the other side
Lives a darkness that she hides

The dark side of the moon, however, is faced away from anyone to see and kept a mystery; but it’s in that mystery where the “living” happens. This dark side of the moon goes undiscovered by outsiders, but the one that has a home there is you; and it’s in this home where “living” is authentically done.
To your dark side of the moon, how are you “living?” Are you living at all? Living under the spell of jealousies? Living under the spell of negative self-talk and senseless mental chatter? Living under the spell of insecurities and fear? Or is life there a world of self-discovery? A world of enjoying the silence and listening to its wisdom? A world of unconditional love for self?
As your new moon cycles in, ensure your dark side has kept a light on. A light strong enough for you to live in the serenity of the quiet admiration of your internal self, and so you may continue to shine when your full moon comes back around.
