Finding Your Shadow Self

Color of the day:  Scarlet
Incense of the day:  Basil

Shadows fill the sky today as a solar eclipse covers much of Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East. It’s also the night of the new moon. All of this energy makes it a perfect time to confront our shadow self, the part of our psyche that makes us uncomfortable and is often repressed or ignored. Simply acknowledging our shadow can often be a challenge.

Find a dark place where you won’t be disturbed, and place a lit candle in a spot between you and a wall. Ideally you want to be in a spot where you cast a giant shadow. In the darkness, stare into your shadow and write down everything you see, positive or negative. Hold nothing back and be honest with yourself. Using your list as a guide, work on integrating both sides of yourself from now until Imbolc.
