New Moon In Leo: Dr. Bach meets Dr. Seuss

Dr Seuss's "The Waiting Place"
Today marks a New Moon in Leo phase.  Last year we were also in a Blue Moon month which we aren't experiencing this year, but the rest of last year's post seems to apply  with perhaps some subtle differences.

Yesterday I tried to write a post. I knew exactly what I wanted to say, I had the picture lined up- the works.  And the technology just wouldn't support me.  I tried a few times to juggle things around and see where my cursor "disappeared" to- no luck.  I took that as a sign, went to the woods and pondered life in general. Today my cursor seems to be "back" and perhaps my perspective is slightly changed.

Yesterday a friend of mine sent me today's picture.  It's from Dr. Seuss's "Oh the Places You Will Go" book.  It's what he describes as "The Waiting Place"  in the following:

The Waiting Place…
…for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a
Yes or a No or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.
Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for
Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a sting of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.
NO!That’s not for you!
Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying.
You’ll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.

My friend and I were lamenting being in "The Waiting Place".  It's a very restless, uncomfortable place to be.  Often we think we should try and break out of the waiting place, perhaps through aggressive action, yet we really realize this is the spot we need to be. Perhaps the challenge is to bring the Boom Bands into "The Waiting Place".  This could be the energy of the New Moon in Leo when it's a good time to start a new project that expresses ourselves and appreciates each other. Maybe it helps if you can find your inner Leo Lion to bring the boom bands to the  waiting place . 

Agrimony might be a necessary Bach Flower right now.  I've written about it before. I've included it in the remedies that help you find your inner lion and figure out what project best serves you and others.  It's also a remedy for restlessness.  It took a "cursor issue" for me to discover that.  Dr. Bach used Agrimony a lot with patents that felt restless and discontented.  He used it for people that questioned their path, found it difficult to line up spirit with earth endeavors and tried to block out emotions.

Dr. Seuss's "Waiting Place" is a place of emotions- many of them not that comfortable- all of them primers for restless fidgeting.  Maybe under the light of this New Moon and with a few drops of Agrimony I'll settle into what it is I really want to say.  Who knows, maybe I'll find my cursor again and be able to write my blog with ease. 

Let the Boom Bands begin!
