28 July 2014

I've come to learn that most of the problems in my life are because of me not expressing my thoughts and feelings clearly enough. Now I know that open, honest and direct communication is the key to more genuine and peaceful relationships. Thank you God for supporting, guiding, and protecting me as I listen to and act upon my feelings. Help me understand and express my emotions with love. Happy Eid Mubarak! Wishing you blue skies, sunny days and happiness along your way. ヘ。ヘ

 And suddenly you know... It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings. 
Meister Eckhart

Where were we 3 years ago? 2 years ago? 1 year ago? 1 week ago? 

How much have we truly changed?

How much have we grown?

Happy New Moon in Leo! Love and freedom rule this New Moon in playful and upbeat Leo! Ruling the 5th House in Astrology, Leo in our chart represents our freedom of self-expression, creativity, playfulness, and confidence. With the Sun and Jupiter here, the New Moon marks a time when we can no longer be anyone but our truest and most authentic self! Not only because we want to, but because we feel that we need to. Otherwise we'd feel like we are betraying our heart and soul. It's a truly cathartic time for many of us, a time when we can finally open our heart to more people in our life. The Leo sign represents true expression of the heart, so there's really no better time to express our appreciation than this New Moon!

Speaking of creativity, how can we express our self in a more honest and direct way now? How can we feel more comfortable in sharing our truest hopes and dreams with people around us? The Moon in Leo will later trine Retrograde Uranus in Aries, which means that we can finally discover new and more creative ways to break free from our old ways of doing things, or thinking about things. What used to be okay for us may no longer fit our new perspective on life and relationships. We expect nothing but the real and authentic from our interactions, and we'll be able to see how we can bring about more love and honesty into our life. Creative imagination and inspiration surround us when we see the world with open heart and childlike eyes.

Mercury in Cancer is trining Saturn which is now moving direct in Scorpio (after his 5 month retrograde in the sign). We have the mental and emotional capabilities to stay strong, grounded, and responsible. No matter what new obstacles may appear on our path, we will see that we are indeed stronger than we have ever been before. We have evolved so much in the past couple of years, and we can now understand that with stronger and more positive mental vision we can deal with whatever problems/lessons life may throw in the future.

It's time for another journey of self-discovery! To have more faith in our new confidence spirit, and to keep exploring new roads. Ones that we trust and believe will eventually take us to the destination that we've been searching for. Keep evolving and continue moving forward! Keywords; growth, expansion, confidence, radiance, joy! ☆*✲゚*。(◍•ᴗ•◍)。*゚✲*☆

I drew a special card from the Crystal Wind Oracle Cards for whoever is reading this blog post, and the card I picked
was The SeerTrust your intuition. Meaning: You can accurately asses a situation and surmise the outcome.
Prophetic images flash through your mind, dreaming or awake. You already know what to do and
‘The Seer’ reinforces that you are on the right path. You may meet a very perceptive
man, woman or child that will help guide you along the way.

Interpretation: It is a time for you to start tuning in to your instincts – that deepest inner sense of personal truth in
any given situation – and start acting on that truth, moment to moment. You can read the emotions
and energies of other people. More importantly, you are learning to trust yourself
and your feelings. This will lead you to the answers you seek.

There are thousands of agreements you have made with yourself, with other people, with your dream of life, with God, with society, with your parents, with your spouse, with your children. But the most important agreements are the ones you made with yourself.

 Can you really connect with someone who won't look you in your eyes? It's the same with you and your dreams. Look 
 your dreams right in the eye and dialogue with them. Ask your dreams the right questions like why do you 
 want them in the first place? Why is your dream so important to you? See your dreams for what they 
 truly are. Keep your eyes on your dreams and stay connected to them every day. By doing this 
 your understanding of self will increase and you will become one with your dreams. 
 What you focus on grows so keep your focus pointed in the right direction.

One word that comes to mind when I think of the upcoming Full Moon in Capricorn is potent. Not only will the Moon in Capricorn oppose the Sun in Cancer, it will also conjunct Pluto - and then later activates the Grand Cross aspects to Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries. For many this can be another particularly intense Full Moon when emotions can run high and imaginations run wild. For the rest of us, this can be a time when we can see more clearly with open heart where our life is heading, and how we truly feel about it. We can look forward to finding a new sense of confidence – regardless of our past fears and limitations. As Plato once said, courage is knowing what not to fear. So there's really no better time to focus on the positive in our life than this Full Moon!

Great questions to ask; What do I need to look at more at this time? What do I need to look away from? Which paths I need to take next in order for me to get closer to my goals and dreams? Because goals + dreams have to start somewhere, and that somewhere is today! ♥~(‘▽^人)

Apart from all the potent energies coming from the Full Moon, we can expect to see another great omen from the heavens. Because the Moon will also form a sextile to Saturn in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces. This can be another great opportunity for many of us to heal our emotional wounds, so that we can start fresh in the next phase of our life. We just need to remain open to life's possibilities for true healing to occur, and then to surrender and let go.

Speaking of Capricorn, let's not forget that we had a powerful New Moon in this sign back on January 1st. Where were we on New Years eve? How did we feel? And what did we do? For some the memories can come up again at this time because the energy of this Full Moon will be quite similar. Perhaps we can see now that some things didn't go as we'd hoped - although in the greater scheme of things, they did go in the best way that only our heart and soul can understand. Or perhaps things did go as planned, but we're seeing them rather differently now. If we look back, we will see that perhaps we didn't really want all those things we thought we wanted – partly because we couldn't see them as clearly and honestly as we should. Planet Venus (aka Goddess of love and desires) was still in her retrograde period too at the beginning of the year, so the chances of unclarity when it comes to our heart's desires were quite high. Either way, trust that in time the answers will always come to us in one way or another.

In the end, the Full Moon is always a time of culmination, a time when we can see and reap the rewards of our efforts. A time when we can discover new steps we need to take in order for us to grow and evolve. A time when we can release things from our life that no longer serve us, so that we can move forward with new hope. This Capricorn Full Moon in particular can also provide us with insights on how to drop our fears. By dropping fears, I'm not suggesting some extreme examples like our fear of jumping off planes or wrestling with snakes. It's really more about the letting go of our emotional demons, our fear of failure, our fear of success, our fear of the unknown, the future, and to catch glimpses of inspiration that come up in our mind. After all, only we know the answers. What we're ready to do next, and what we're ready to let go. Everyone can say what they want to say, or do what they want to do, but ultimately, we're truly the captain of our soul!
