The Sun On The Nature Spirit Dancing In The Waterfall Degree: Capricorn 26

 In Lunar Stories by Lynda Hill


Waterfall fairy vintage printThis is the degree of my Moon’s north node. For the first three years of my life, I lived with my parents at Oxford Falls, in Sydney. Oxford Falls is, I believe, the biggest waterfall in Sydney – there aren’t many, I imagine… When I was a child visiting with my father, I used to run up and down the side of the falls. It is one of my favourite memories of my childhood. The pic below is of Oxford Falls.

I have a little cottage in Katoomba, in Sydney’s Blue Mountains. Katoomba in aboriginal language – variously translated – means basically ‘bright shining falling waters’ Katoomba has the most waterfalls of anywhere in the Blue Mountains (again, to my knowledge). I did not know that that was Katoomba meant when my now ex husband, Richard, and I bought the cottage. I love how these Symbols work – amazing.

This Symbol shows the ability to, or the need for, being able to skip lightly over the surface of life, dancing and playing. Whilst this is, essentially, a beautiful symbol of a ‘lightness of being’, there may be an element of feeling cut off from your body, or reality. You may feel emotionally light and almost mischievous. The deeper parts of your feelings are ignored as you effortlessly flit over the surface of any troubles. This can lead to a sense of alienation or difficulty in knowing where to land or evadingOxford Falls Waterfall problems by ignoring them or rising above them.

Effervescent spirits. Dancing in a carefree manner. Water and fun. Peter Pan attitudes. Celebrations of the natural world. Waterfalls. Mist. Nymphs, fairies. Subtle energies.

The Caution: Irresponsibility, avoidance of real situations. Not taking anything seriously. Escapism. Moving, or flying, around. Perceptions of light. Fear of dark places. Naïve.

    I also have wonderful childhood memories of Oxford Falls! (I find this amazing, as most people I speak to have no idea where Oxford Falls is).
    I would spend many weekends horse riding there – saving up my money from odd jobs and spending it at a Riding School – which was located at the end of the dirt track which wound through the beautiful forest. I would spend the entire day winding my way through the little tracks in the peace and quiet – sitting for lunch in a small glade eating my sandwiches and feeling apples and carrots to the Pinto mare called Lady, listening to the waterfall.
    I remember many times, after a heavy deluge of rain, not being able to cross the road where the waterfall ran – and standing on the little rickety wooden footbridge which went over the road, watching the water. For some reason that bridge with its backdrop of reeds and trees always reminded me of one of Monet’s paintings.

    And now today in Katoomba it is lovely indeed – sunshine and wispy clouds.
    I think today is a lovely day to visit Cascade Water Falls and be inspired – and take some sandwiches and think about Business.

    Perfect Deleece! I wonder if we were there at the same time some of those days? I saw my father yesterday, I haven’t seen him for quite a long time and he isn’t well… he mentioned Oxford Falls and I sat there thinking – there’s that ‘waterfall degree’. I asked him about the riding school and he said it was exactly opposite his house. On turned off Oxford Falls Road into Spicer Road and you either turned to the right into the driveway of my father’s house, or, to the left into the riding school. I so miss that property at Oxford Falls. Of course now it’s worth a squillion dollars ! 🙂

    I hope you had a lovely day – what great weather to go to the falls.
