In the fall of 2018, I moved from my home in Portland, OR to Los Angeles, CA. After being in LA for one month with my sister and partner, we learned that the house were we lived was being sold and we had a month to find someplace new. It was an uncertainty that was hard to face after having just settled in. These two months in LA was when a massive clearing began. Sparks that turned to flame, changing my inner landscape forever. I turned to meditation, tarot and my music for guidance, centering and healing. It wasn't until six days before our move out date that my destination came to me in a quiet moment, Austin, TX. In less than a week I had a place to live, a rented car, and a plan to leave my sister and partner and embark on an independent soul-centered journey.
It is here in Austin where I have done the deepest healing. In place of the burnt remains of my old structure grew a beautiful wilderness. Lush, free and true. I reconnected with nature, finding strength, stability, and a chance to breathe deeply with a wise tree. I looked into the water within when I sat by the creek and noticed how everything is ever changing and transforming. Even when it looks still, there is movement. There is joy in impermanence.
On October 9th of 2019 I turned 30 and found myself in a season of darkness. A space that required rest and compassion. On the evening of the turning from Libra to Scorpio, my sun to my rising, a veil was lifted. It came to me clearly that I had been evolving out of my persona as Pat Moon and stepping into what feels right, releasing this work under my given name.
When I return, I can sense the knowing that has always been there, weaving golden threads through the past while holding me in the present, a graceful guiding light along the path. I hear each word come through as a soft inner voice, echoing out from the dark chambers within. The Tower is the force that clears what is no longer able to stay, it's a turning point. And within that clearing is sacred ground for the journey of coming home to oneself.
