Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces | R / E V O L U T I O N

 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces:
The greatest revolutions begin within. They are a struggle of the spirit,
stuck between the past and the future. A metamorphosis of the
soul, going from one level of awareness to the next.

The past no longer works. What used to work in our lives is no longer working now. Who we were yesterday can no longer fit within who we are today and what we're currently going through. This is no longer a matter of changing ourselves for the sake of change, but because of what's being asked of us.

We are being asked to reinvent ourselves. To stretch ourselves beyond our old limitations. To release negative beliefs about ourselves that feel like truth, but actually not. To embody our truest selves in order to fulfill our highest aspirations and reach our full potential.

Where there was obscurity, now there is clarity. Where there were lies, now there is truth. What can we see now that we couldn't see before? What are we ready to let go so that we can become more truthful to ourselves? Being honest with ourselves is the way to personal growth and true liberation of the soul. Being true to ourselves brings inner peace through conquering the conflicts we carry within our own minds.

When we are feeling stuck between the past and the future, one of the first steps to take is to look at how honest we have been to ourselves. The confidence that comes from acknowledging what is true is the key to release our suffering from clinging to the past.

This doesn't mean that we should erase the past, but more to see the past as a time when personal growth and development took place. A time when we learned more about ourselves and the world around us. A time when we discovered our truth and inner freedom. As we become more honest with ourselves, we discover a truth that goes beyond what we see or what we feel, and that's where our true power resides.

The confidence that comes from acknowledging what is true is
the key to release our suffering from clinging to the past.

Happy Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! The Moon is joining Neptune Rx and Chiron Rx in Pisces forming an opposition to Mercury Rx and the Sun in Virgo, marking an extra instinctive and imaginative Full Moon in the sign of the Fish. With a Lunar Eclipse happening at the same time, we get a chance to finally let go of something that is holding us back from moving forward.

The act of letting go may be something that we get to do time and time again in life, but during a Lunar Eclipse period, forces out of our control can drive us to release from ourselves illusions of disempowerment and embrace our personal power.

Typically, power has been viewed in a negative light due to the negative ways in which power and influence have been exercised. But there is a clear distinction between positive power, which comes in the form of personal power, and negative power.

Personal power is based on the strength and confidence one gradually acquires from personal growth and evolution. This type of power symbolizes a movement toward self-realization and spiritual awakening. Its primary goal is control and mastery of self, not others - which is the primary goal of negative power.

The Moon's conjunction to Neptune Rx and Chiron Rx is reminding us of the deep healing power of forgiveness of self and others. It's about time we cleaned out old stuck anger, blame or resentment we may have been holding on. Even if what another person did is unforgivable, it's time to stop harboring their essence so that we can clear our energy and lift our spirits.

Always remember that we are a divine conduit of love and healing. Through forgiveness, we open a doorway to spiritual mastery and hence able to help others cope through the same life lessons with our own spiritual centeredness.

Even if what another person did is unforgivable, it's time
to stop harboring their essence so that we can
clear our energy and lift our spirits.

With the Moon's square to Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius, some parts of our lives need re-balancing. Perhaps we have been working too much or postponing our priorities to exercise, eat healthily, meditate or create. Rather than feeling overburdened, try to bring an element of fun back into our lives. This is not to neglect our duties or responsibilities, but to find a way to feel less overwhelmed by not being so serious all the time.

Dedicate some time to balance by doing something we really enjoy or creating something which is meaningful to us. Let go of the tendency to think worst-case scenarios by opening our mind to new, unseen possibilities. Changes happening now are divinely orchestrated to remind us of life's bigger reason and purpose. Ask ourselves, "Are these delays reminding me about the true meaning of patience?", "Is this problem teaching me the true power of being emotionally resilient?".

Dedicate some time to balance by doing something we really
enjoy or creating something which is meaningful to us.

The Moon is also forming a sextile to Pluto Rx in Capricorn, bringing to us the courage to renew the way we express our emotions, unleashing a new power within us. This points to a time in the cycle of human life when things need stirring up in order for true, revolutionary change to take place.

The strength of the forces of change will be in alignment with our emotional growth. And we will find that chaos is an integral part of that much-needed change. Not all chaos are bad. Without chaos, there would be no order. By taking a closer look at what is within a chaos, we start to recognize familiar patterns and begin to rebuild our personal structures.

Chaos can also provide a way to see from multiple perspectives. Everything that doesn't work is taken from us so that the truest parts of ourselves remain. The Pisces Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is a time to recognize that even in the seeming chaos, there is divine order. Don't be afraid to jump into the mix. Be present in the eye of the chaos. Everything that's happening now is in truth shaking things up so that we can find the real path to our true destiny.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo | The Magick of Self-Love

● | ● | ● | ●

 September 1st, 2016 

The greatest gift you can give yourself is a little bit of your own attention.
Anthony J. D'Angelo

New Moon in Virgo: What got you through your
dark moments was your heart's resilience.

As we give to ourselves the same amount of love we give to others, we give ourselves the gift of living up to our full potential. As we give to ourselves the same amount of respect we give to others, we give ourselves the chance to step into our truest identity.

The root of self-love begins in the heart. The ability to love ourselves regardless of what we consider to be our flaws or shortcomings is the first step to turn self-hatred into self-compassion. Loving ourselves is not the same as being narcissistic. Loving ourselves comes from being kind and loving to ourselves, whereas narcissism comes from covering up our insecurities with false displays of confidence. 

Loving ourselves is also not about ignoring aspects of ourselves that we don't like. It's about quietening down that negative inner critic and replacing it with more compassionate self-beliefs that can help us see ourselves in a more loving light. From there, we can begin to look at ourselves from a more loving perspective and stop being too hard on ourselves.

Think about those we care about and how we treat them and start treating ourselves in the same way. Talk to ourselves the way we would talk to a good friend. Ask ourselves, "What would I say to a good friend who was going through the same thing I am going through?". 

Start embracing the concept of 'good enough' rather than striving for perfection all of the time. The quest for excellence shouldn't jeopardize our sense of security and well-being. Give ourselves the gift of space. The space to be more attentive to ourselves. The space to grow beyond our old limitations. The space to love ourselves unconditionally where we feel more open to accept ourselves just the way we are. 

Happy New Moon! The Moon is joining the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury Rx in Virgo, marking a super intuitive and illuminating New Moon in the sign of the Virgin. Seeing from a higher perspective is what we need now to understand our circumstances from a neutral vantage point. 

Instead of only considering ourselves, try to consider what we need to understand the people and environment we're currently engaged in. Other points of view are needed before we can move forward. There's a big world out there - filled with a multitude of potential.  The New Moon in Virgo is guiding us to widen our scope and see beyond the small 'self'.

The Moon is forming a square to Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius, and fear is leading the way into places we don't need to go. Facing the unknown is the only choice we have right now if we truly want progress. It's okay to be afraid, but that shouldn't stop us from taking a leap of faith. Listen to our heart and soul as we are called to express our true selves. It's time to come to the edge and discover that we can fly. But first we must step into the unfamiliar in order to find our miracles.

The Moon is also forming an opposition to Neptune Rx and Chiron Rx in Pisces, bringing to us the opportunity to co-create our reality with the magick of self-love. We are creating our reality every moment of every day with our feelings, thoughts, beliefs and actions. Instead of letting self-hate lead the way, let self-love be the paintbrush that co-creates a beautiful, unique expression of our soul. Be a manifestor of dreams by reveling in the power of our will and inspiration. Reclaim our partnership with Spirit and get out of our own way.

With the Moon's trine to Pluto Rx in Capricorn, we are setting new standards and boundaries which are more in alignment with our true values. It's human nature to yearn for certainty and resist change, yet one thing guaranteed now is change. As we are guided to shift directions, we will embrace ourselves more fully with renewed clarity and strength.

The Virgo New Moon, which also happens to be a Solar Eclipse, brings a time of butterfly-like transformation. It's about time we recognized that we did our best with what we understood back then. It's about time we appreciated the lessons we've learned from our choices. It's about time we asked ourselves, "How can I love myself more?", "How can I forgive myself and accept myself more fully?", "How can I build a stronger foundation within me with the new awareness, knowledge and understanding that I have now?".

Full Moon in Aquarius | Yes Please!

● | ● | ● | ●

 August 18th, 2016 

Full Moon in Aquarius: Every day is another chance to ditch the false self
and dig in a little deeper to unlock your true potential.

Within our empowered self lies our true potential. The potential to grow. The potential to see from a more liberated point of view. The potential to break free from old shackles of disempowerment and live authentically from the soul.

Some have been wearing a mask of their idealized self for a long time that they forget where their true self resides. The mask of an idealized self is a mask we wear to hide negative beliefs we have about ourselves. These negative self-beliefs may seem like our true identity, when in truth, they are only our ego's attempt to separate us from love. And without knowing it, we attach ourselves to fear and begin questioning our self worth.

Know that in essence, we are all multifaceted and complex, and finding our sense of empowerment doesn't mean neglecting our core pain and false self altogether. It means that by getting in touch with what motivates us to embody our core power, we also become aware of the beliefs that drive our core wound. From there, we are able to locate where our pain is located within us, and find a way to strengthen our ability to rise above false self-beliefs.

As we gradually release our sense of disempowerment, we open the door to wisdom greater than what is available in the limitations of human experience. This is where our true power lies. The power to listen to the oracle within. The power to navigate our journeys by accessing our inner guidance. The power of deep knowing and trusting our vibes. No matter what's going on around us, we stay true to ourselves and stick to our gut. It's time to say "no, thank you" to anyone in our life who exhausts us and say "yes please!" to everything that strengthens our spirit and liberates our soul.

Happy Full Moon! The Moon is in Aquarius forming an opposition the Sun in Leo, marking a Full Moon in the sign of the Water Bearer. A complete resolution is on the way, as long as we're open to the idea of evolution.

Evolution is a gradual process of growth. A willingness to evolve. An openness to change. This is a good time to look in the mirror and ask ourselves, "Who am I?", "Am I truly the kind of person I believe I am?", "How can I evolve and become the kind of person I want to be?".

The idea of liberating ourselves from past limitations can be especially appealing to us now. We want to be more open, more authentic, more ourselves. We can see that our unique qualities are not something to be ashamed of, but something to be cherished. There is great power in understanding our own story now. Realizing that the story we tell ourselves define the nature of our experiences.

We may not always know why we do the things we do, because our feelings are not always logical. But now is the time to recognize whether we are being triggered by old, outdated beliefs we have about ourselves or unresolved issues from the past. Listen closely to the messages from our intuition. What does it tell us about ourselves and others?

Aquarians like to find ways to revolutionize old ideas and bring them into the future for the greater good. Whether through creating social groups and connecting with like-minded individuals on the internet, or through expressing their unique talents in a way that can benefit the human race as a whole. Be extra clear now about why we want the things we do. Are we driven by a desire to serve? Or are we sharing our talents because we simply want to be admired?

The Moon is forming a sextile to Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius, and our drive to move forward is back. Keep going in the direction of our hopes, dreams, or plans. It's important that we stand our ground and believe in ourselves. Do not let other people intimidate us into quitting. Just because they don't have our vision doesn't mean we shouldn't follow our heart.

What we need now is faith. Stay positive and visualize the outcome we're hoping for. Let go of negativity or pessimism and choose a more sunny outlook where we have more faith in ourselves and our cherished dreams. Mars and Saturn joining hands calls for us to take matters into our own hands. And to remember that setting boundaries with those around us to create a safe and secure environment is nothing to apologize for.

With the Moon's sextile to Uranus Rx in Aries, it's about time we made a conscious choice to be the person we are meant to be. We know that there is something more out in the world for us when we embody our truest self. Uranus in a retrograde phase is guiding us to let our inner truth talk and urging us to leave toxic situations behind. Or at least distance ourselves temporarily so that we can regain our center.

Sometimes all we need is a time to rest, recover and heal from all our experiences. Give our mind a chance to heal from harsh energy and intensity. We have the ability to walk away from anyone or anything that's triggering emotional pain. And as we walk away, we will gain insights into what we will and won't accept in the future. It's a time of self-discovery and resurgence of energy. A time of admitting the truth to ourselves. A time of following our dream into fruition. A time to affirm: Yeah! LET'S DO THIS.
