Time for some moon magic! Teotihuacan was one of the places in Mexico that I didn't want to miss. “The Birthplace of the Gods,” with its impressive Sun and Moon Pyramids connected by the Avenue of the Dead. The Leo full moon was coming and with it, a lunar eclipse. I was looking forward to being in a high-vibrational site, filled with so much ancient history, mythology, and mystery, for this cosmic event. Eclipses usher in powerfully transformative energy and I had been wanting to use this time to set new personal intentions.
The sheer size of these pyramids is hard to convey in text, but to say that they are massive is an understatement- with few trees in the vast, dry valley, you can see the two Sun and Moon pyramids from miles and miles away- yet they resemble the landscape enough that one might mistake them for mountains. The climb to the top of the Sun pyramid was a daunting task! Our energetic little Leo was eager to see the view!
The steps were steep and many! In some places, there was a rope to hold for extra assurance, but often, we were relying mostly on our balance and good faith! As we got higher and higher, I began wrestle with visions of one of us falling to our death! It was a longgg way down and I am slightly afraid of heights. And so, in the end, the little prince was the recipient of a very regal piggy-back ride to the top of the Temple. We all rested there catch our breath and take in the majestic views, imagining what this immense complex must have looked like thousands of years ago, in the height of its bustling empire.
Pyramids the world over have been said to align with certain constellations at the time of major cosmic events and planetary shifts. That afternoon, as we sat on the top of the Sun pyramid, on the eve of the Leo full moon, hours from the lunar eclipse- I sat and meditated for a few minutes. I thanked the sun, the most radiant star in our sky, for giving us warmth and light. I asked for guidance and protection. And I prayed that our journey would take us to the soil where our wildest desires could take root and eventually blossom. From the top of this pyramid, I envisioned my intentions being carried up in a precise and focused energetic beam of light pointed straight to the heavens.
And so it shall be, and even better! Full moon blessings to all this Lunar Eclipse!
