Full Moon in Leo | Relighting Your Spirit

● | ● | ● | ●

 February 11th, 2017 

Full Moon in Leo:
Don't let negativity distract you from your light.

Shining our light is not about overshadowing others. It's about sharing our story and speaking our truth with the intention to connect as well as about transforming the way we give, love and live. Shining our light is also not about feeling 100% complete. It's about stepping beyond our fear of not being complete enough and accepting the broken pieces within as sources of light and learning.

When we let negativity distract us from our light, we forget that it is our right to find happiness. That it is rewarding to share the wisdom that we have learned on our journey to self-discovery. By acknowledging our own light, we also give others the chance to acknowledge their own light.

Do not cling to any concept, belief or idea about how we think shining our light should or shouldn't be. Instead, focus more on the path to self-growth and self-love. Focus more on embracing every aspect of our being, regardless of where we are on our path. Focus more on not allowing those moments of darkness to overshadow our spirit. Encourage ourselves to remember times when we made the world a more positive place, and know that the moment we share our light, the world does become a brighter place.

When we let negativity distract us from our light,
we forget that it is our right to find happiness.

Happy Full Moon! The Moon in Leo is forming an opposition to Mercury and the Sun in Aquarius, marking an extra encouraging and emboldening Full Moon in the sign of the Lion. This particular Full Moon also happens to be a Lunar Eclipse, and as it is happening in the sign that's all to do with the heart, there is a gateway opening toward a brand new sense of emotional freedom.

Realizing that we are more in charge of our own thoughts and feelings than we give ourselves credit for is one of those important steps to liberating ourselves from the pressures of modern day stress. Know that taking charge of our own emotions is not about guarding ourselves from unwanted emotions. It's about honoring the fact that we are humans with feelings and that those dark moments are only temporary. When we stop allowing our emotions to dictate how we live our lives, we can become more aware of them without feeling powerless in the process.

The Moon is forming a trine to Venus and Mars, and the magick is in focusing on what we are attracting, rather than pushing away what we don't want. In other words, stay positive, because with Mars and Venus conjoining in the sign of go-getting Aries, whatever we focus on can accelerate.

If we have been wanting to do something, now is the time. Don't hold back anything, because anything is possible when we take charge of our day and put our heart and mind to it. As the Leo star Madonna once said, "A lot of people are afraid to ask for what they want. That's why they don't get what they want."

Realizing that we are more in charge of our own thoughts
and feelings than we give ourselves credit for is one
of those important steps to liberating ourselves
from the pressures of modern day stress.

The Full Moon is also forming a trine to Uranus and Saturn, and we realize that our work, our relationships and our very being are directly correlated to our values, ethics and core beliefs. Are they still true for us? Will they stand the test of time and serve as the solid foundation in which we construct our lives?

Perhaps our values have changed and it is time to let go of things that no longer serve the vision we have for our lives. Saturn is reminding us that now is the time to build on the strong foundation we have already laid for our prosperity, and Uranus is asking us to keep in mind that these foundations are permeated with the sparkling energy of our creativity.

With the Moon's sextile to Jupiter Rx, accepting the truth that everyone has flaws is a sign of spiritual growth. We are being asked to be aware of the dynamics we no longer want to repeat, and to stop trying to be all things to all people.

The Full Moon in Leo is reminding us to choose our role and be true to it. There is no greater feeling than to express ourselves from a place of authenticity. This is not the time to dim our light in order to play a role within the larger whole. This is the time to be real, to be ourselves and to stand tall in our own unique light.

New Moon in Aquarius | Approving of Yourself Without Seeking Approval

● | ● | ● | ●

 January 27th, 2017 

Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn't
worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.
Louise Hay

New Moon in Aquarius:
Being ourselves is not about being selfish. It's about recognizing
and honoring who we truly are while also giving others the
chance to recognize and honor who they truly are.

We can't fully be ourselves without first acknowledging our self-worth and getting to a place where we can be at peace with who we truly are. Honoring our self-worth is one of the first steps to recognizing our true potentials. When we don't recognize our true potentials, it also becomes difficult for others to recognize them. This in turn can dictate the way we feel about ourselves and the choices we make. 

In order to truly recognize our true potentials and live from a place of authenticity, we must release our attachment to the opinions of others. This doesn't mean that we should ignore or disregard other people's opinions altogether. This simply means that we need to cultivate self-compassion in order to help us navigate through the myriad of ideas and opinions we encounter every day. From there, we can begin to listen to what others have to say and figure out which opinion comes from love and which comes from fear. 

Stepping away from people and situations that constantly belittle us is a choice, and it is one of the most important steps we can take to recognize our self-worth. When we feel that we aren't worth the job, relationship, or whatever positive outcomes we create, the way we feel can be seen in what shows up in our lives. Rather than feeling guilty about the way we feel, begin to respect ourselves enough to walk away from people or situations that no longer serve our greatest good.

If we refuse to let a person or a situation to negatively impact us, we can start to shift our energy and what we allow into our lives. By acknowledging to ourselves that we are all on our own unique journeys and that there is no spiritual race, we can start feeling more at peace with the pace of growth in ourselves and in others.

Rather than feeling guilty about the way we feel, begin to respect
ourselves enough to walk away from people or situations
that no longer serve our greatest good. 

Happy New Moon! The Moon is conjoining the Sun in Aquarius, marking a rebellious and revolutionary New Moon in the sign of the Water-Bearer. Seeing ourselves in a new light can be highlighted now as we explore more deeply what it means to stick to our guns. Our inner world is more colourful and we can feel more energized with work that helps us express our inner artist. 

The Aquarius New Moon brings to us the reminder that in essence, we are free to do what we choose. That we are not victims of outside circumstances and that we do have choices in everything we do. It is all a matter of perspective and breaking out of old mindsets.

With the Moon forming a sextile to Uranus and Saturn, the insight of self-responsibility empowers us to envision a brighter today and tomorrow. We have the right to change our lives. To trust our feelings to guide us toward activities that are more meaningful and fulfilling. To not wait for another's permission to take charge of our destiny. 

Continue trusting our heart's guidance as our career evolves and changes. Everything we have experienced has brought us to this moment. Are we going to keep playing it safe? Or are we ready to shatter old paradigms and take new steps in the direction of our dreams?

With the Moon forming a sextile to Uranus and Saturn,
the insight of self-responsibility empowers us to
envision a brighter today and tomorrow.

The Moon is also forming a trine to Jupiter, and we have come to a point where going it alone is no longer optimal for us. As we raise our standards and self-esteem, we can attract more like-minded, sincere and helpful people into our lives. Imagine for a moment how our lives would be if we felt more comfortable asking for and receiving help from others.

The universe has a way of presenting us with the perfect people to align with who can help us evolve during the next phase of our journey. The New Moon in Aquarius is a time of embracing interdependence, allowing teamwork and independence to merge, making room for miracles to happen.
