See that moon graphic?
Look up. Watch for it to appear in the sky this season.
Each month when the moon looks like this The Girl Child shows up. It’s the “Spring Equinox of the month”.
So, being under a Girl Child moon during Spring Equinox season is pretty extra.
She’s in your face today, insistent.
C’mon c’mon! Let’s play!, she not-so-subtly suggests.
Yo, we’re in a pandemic. We’re quarantined. It’s not the time for fun and games! you might bark back, white knuckling your phone and hand santizer.
But what if she’s right?
What if play is exactly what you should be doing right now?
When you play, you enter an expansive place. You trade in restriction for possibilities, you experiment, you pretend, you move and act without first considering.
This is also called a “flow state”.
Most of my best ideas have come through play.
My favorite way to play has always been “pretend”.
I’ve figured out really innovative things, like the Archetype Mapping divination, through pretend.
One summer evening a few years back I invited about 10 of my ace-girls over for dinner on the screened porch. I told them I needed help figuring something out.
After dinner, I passed around worksheets with a hand drawn circle on it (I traced it with a plate), divided into 12 sections (I used the edge of my clipboard). Then I put drops anointing oils onto little strips I cut out from my big pad of water color paper.
Essentially, I had an idea and pretended I already knew how to do it. My pals came over and pretended to be my clients.
It took the pressure off. It allowed me to enjoy the process; notice what worked and what didn’t from a place of curiosity instead of performance anxiety.
And now I have this thing, Archetype Mapping. It’s deep, it’s effective, and it helps people get clear super fast.
So, The Girl Child archetype can help you find solutions by reminding you to chill-the-fuck-out and play.
When your mind is clamped down, it cannot innovate.
When your mind is restricted, there’s no room for anything new; no insight, no inspiration.
Listen, our world is shifting before our very eyes and there’s no going back.
We NEED your insight and innovation right now. We need your brain to unlock and contribute to this new reality we’re stepping into.
I mean it.
So, you gonna put that phone down and play like The Girl Child is not-so-subtly suggesting?
Or are you gonna let your world and your mind get smaller and smaller, tighter and tighter?
Mother may I PLAY in order to tap into my genius?
Yes you may.
And, please do. We need you.
love & new beginnings,
