If a Tree Falls and I Donâ€™t Hear It….

Thereâ€™s a lightness in the air that I canâ€™t explain. But it feels good.
Somethingâ€™s shifted…again. Somethingâ€™s changed. Maybe itâ€™s that Iâ€™ve let go of something I didnâ€™t know I was carrying or maybe Â somethingÂ Â thatâ€™s Â had Â me Â by Â the Â ankles Â has Â been wrenched free. I donâ€™t know. Â But for the first time in a long time, thereâ€™s a sense of anticipation in the Â air and excitement about the unknown ahead of me.
Iâ€™ve heard before: Â watch for August, watch for September, Â watch for October, watch for November, watch for December. None of Â them bore the fruit Iâ€™d been told to expect. The energies shifted and delayed while other things were processed and re-slotted. Maybe itâ€™s the Â Grand Fixed Cross in the astrological charts right now. Thank the Gods, Â itâ€™s starting to dissipate and we can start to move forward on the things that ground to a halt back in mid-August and in September and then reversed and kind of squirmed under the weight of the celestial squares and oppositions that formed the Cross.
Things are happening and I donâ€™t know what they are. They affect me, but I still donâ€™t know what they are.
The not-knowing drives me crazy. If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound? If Lorna doesnâ€™t see whatâ€™s going on, is anything happening?
Iâ€™d thought nothing was happening because I couldnâ€™t see it. I was wrong. Much has happened, continues to happen. Out of my sight. I have faith that I will see the results but before then, I will not see the grueling everyday rites of suffering and twisting and molding into what is to be. Itâ€™s a lesson in patience, and one Iâ€™ve failed at for so long.
Thereâ€™s an easiness…or easier-ness…to the future now. A sense of Â not having to hold on so tight. Of just letting things be…and letting things come.
I think the Spring will be very lovely and warm for me this year. Full of light and love. Iâ€™ll welcome it with open arms.
Iâ€™d say I canâ€™t wait, but I know I will.
