Understanding the attributes unique to our celestial nature can help us see the recurring themes that show up in life. It's the blueprint to understanding ourselves. To see clearly the binds that hold us back, often fastened by ourselves without our knowledge.
Our shadow aspect feels as if it's hidden, existing below the earth in the darkness, often manifesting as guilt, shame, sadness or anger.
Just as yin and yang complement each other with their natural duality of light and dark, the shadow aspect of our archetype is interconnected with the light, the parts of us that are approved of by the world.
Often it is perceived that our shadow aspect represents the parts of us that are “broken” but to be whole we need to accept all of us, just as wet is to dry or night is to day. Integrating the hidden self so we can become whole.
“You are not broken, you are open.”
To be open to life as it comes and welcome what we came here to learn.
To accept who are today, where we aspire to be, and how to get there.
Our shadow aspect isn’t to be perceived as negative, it’s like gravity, a tension that keeps us alive and from floating into space.
The challenges and setbacks we face are only the growing pains to realise our better selves. Hard truths, though often unwanted in the moment, shine a light on the pleasing self-image we build to pacify ourselves in place of the real thing. Accepting turbulent conditions and often painful lessons are the way we may transcend the mind limits of fantasy. Here, we may truly recognise ourselves, accept what lies ahead, and begin to live a free and joyful life.
When out of balance, you can get caught up in other peoples mess and lose your voice, over-prioritising people’s opinions around you. Sometimes, you say what people need to hear to put them at ease, so you can be left to your own devices. Your talent for speaking can turn into excess, like a tornado you can end up overdoing it. You can be quite moody and may want to avoid confrontation even when you need to get things done. Be careful not to view others as problems to be pacified, or as objects obstructing your path. While you do need alone time to recalibrate, beware of becoming overly self-reliant. You can’t hold up your own ladder while climbing it.
