Groundhog Day, Deja Vu

Groundhog Day Deja Vu. 

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”- George Santayana, in The Life of Reason, 1905 Significant words.

February 2nd in modern secular times is the mash-up of Imbolc,an ancient pagan Fire fertility festival on February 1 dedicated to Brigid keeper of the Sacred Flame which is also bound up with Groundhog day as it is the midpoint between winter and spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Candlemas, celebrated on February 2md is the Christianized version of the Pagan Cross- quarter festival.

Groundhog day is a popular tradition celebrated in Canada and the United States on based on a Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog or  woodchuck emerges from its burrow on this day and  sees its shadow it means that winter will last for six more weeks, and if it does not see its shadow spring will arrive early.

History of Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day 1993, has become an icon for the spiritual and literal theme of the movie about “seeing your shadow” which the groundhog may or may not do on Feb 2.  The Movie, starring Bill Murray, directed and written by Harold Ramis, has the protagonist in a karmic time loop. He woke up every day experiencing the same things over and over and he cannot die.

The message is: WHAT KARMIC LESSONS are you still stuck on and repeating over and over, like Phil Connors in the film? 

Make this your Groundhog day mantra.

Where am I stuck in my life?  What am I resisting? 

Why do I keep repeating the same old same old same old lessons?

Why is the collective unconscious so unconscious that we keep repeating these same old boring lessons?

This is very valid considering what’s going on in the world these days.

Just remember the famous song from Groundhog Day.
