Full Moon in Libra | Recognizing Your Own Reflection (NSFW)

True intimacy is union between flesh and flesh, between
subtle body and subtle body, between soul and soul.
Deepak Chopra

Full Moon in Libra: Be a reflection of the kind of love,
truth and authenticity you want to experience.

What can we truly see in our reflection? 

Can we find the correlation between our subconscious and our relationships?

Can we spot the connection between how we are really feeling and what we have been experiencing?

One of the first steps that we can take to attract more authentic relationships is to take a closer look at ourself. To be honest with ourself so that we can be honest with others in our life. To learn about our values and strengths, so that we can also see the values and strengths in others. 

Each one of us has different roles that we play in our relationships. The relationship that we have with our family members, friends, lover or spouse, colleagues or higher-ups, pets and so forth. This doesn't mean that we have to lie to ourself in some way in order for those roles to function effectively. We can still be authentically ourself without jeopardizing those relationships' dynamics. Provided that we act from a place of loving open-mindedness, not from a place of judgment and blame. 

Owning our personal energy can provide a better understanding of the kind of energy we put out into our relationships. Recognizing our personal voice can also help in voicing our own needs and wants in those relationships. What kind of compromises are we willing to make? Or what kind of changes are we not ready (or will never be able) to make? This is not about trying to be more self-centered, because none of us wants to feel awfully selfish. This simply means that when we take care of ourself first, we can show up as a healthy, grounded and self-realized individual in the lives of others. 

It is essentially about coming from a place of identity that belongs to us while expecting nothing less than the same from others. A place of being able to recognize our own reflection and to connect heart-to-heart and soul-to-soul.

Happy Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! The Moon is in Libra opposite Mercury, the Sun and Uranus in Aries, marking a super savvy and idealistic Full Moon in the sign of the Scales. With a Lunar Eclipse happening at the same time, this becomes an extra emotional Full Moon filled with new revelations and realizations. What we couldn't see before can rise to the surface in full view. This includes what we couldn't see in ourself as well as in our connections. 

What we used to tolerate in the past may no longer be tolerable now. We will be able to see our relationships in a different light because we are establishing a closer connection with ourself. And since Venus and Jupiter are still forming a challenging square to Saturn at the time of this Full Moon, we will also see matters of the heart from a more mature perspective. 

What form of commitments are we ready to make? And what kind of deal breakers are we willing to agree on?

Regardless of whether or not we are in an established relationship, we should be able to make a new promise to ourself. To show up for ourself and be our own best friend first. To begin connecting from a deeper physical, sexual, intellectual, emotional and also spiritual level as a sign of respect for ourself and for our current or potential partner.

Recognizing that there is something more to love than we have ever known before. A love that transcends beyond romance. A connection that comes from a deeper level of self-awareness and higher levels of communication and support. This can be possible for us when we feel a sense of union with our own soul. A sense of honest affinity and mutuality with our true nature, our core and inner light. As we release our attachment to old, insecure patterns of relating, we can develop new styles of connecting that are more in alignment with our true values.

The Full Moon is forming a sextile to Mars and Saturn bringing to us the realization that we can find a way to grow beyond those old limitations. And because relationships are front and center at this time, seeing old problems from a higher perspective can be especially transformative to our connections. Through accepting the role that we play in creating future circumstances, we can feel a corresponding sense of relief and freedom in the present. 

Realizing that we no longer have to carry the weight of self-blame, but to focus more instead on envisioning a brighter today and tomorrow. Knowing that we have the right to change our life. To not wait for another's permission to take charge of our destiny. And to trust our feelings to guide us toward interactions that are more meaningful and fulfilling. 

With the Moon's square to Pluto, we are reminded that struggling can only cause energy blockage that is slowing our manifesting ability. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse brings to us the awareness that we are not a victim of our relationship issues and that we have choices in everything we do. But first, we need to let go emotionally so that we are not overwhelmed by indecision and the stress of over-analyzing.

No matter what's going on around us, listen to that inner guidance, which will help us know which step to take next. Have trust that everything is being worked out for our highest and best good. Even if everything doesn't make sense right now, we will soon see how it all fits perfectly together.

Begin by holding the intention of opening our heart to giving and receiving love, and end by affirming: "I am able to recognize what I need to let go in my life to become a reflection of the kind of love, truth and authenticity I want to experience."

New Moon in Pisces | Courage in Between Dreams vs Reality

● | ● | ● | ●

 ‪March 9th, 2016‬ 

New Moon in Pisces: Sail your sea of dreams with vision as
your compass and courage as your guiding light.

What happens to our broken dreams? Do they disappear into thin air? Or do they lie within us waiting for us to believe in them again? When was the last time we truly believed in a dream without fears or worries getting in the way?

Perhaps we have been disappointed by our dreams. Because they always seem so far away, or because they didn't arrive at what we believe to be the right time. Perhaps we have been blessed to see our dreams coming true before our very eyes, and they make us dream even more dreams. It is also possible that sometimes we are not even aware enough to notice our dreams being realized because they arrive in a different package. And this is when we are asked to open our eyes more to see what lies beneath the surface. 

Some dreams can come true in the form of hard work and more responsibilities. Some dreams can also come true in the form of an unexpected offer that we feel reluctant to accept. Other dreams do not manifest because they are not in alignment with the highest purpose that we have for our life. Understand that ultimately, we will grow with each broken dream. And we will evolve with each unfulfilled wish. This doesn't mean that the universe is working against us. This simply means that there is still more learning to do. 

Perhaps our dreams are 'flawed' because they come from the ego. Which means that without those dreams coming true, we wouldn't feel whole on our own. Perhaps we feel afraid to look deeper into our dreams because we may end up feeling undeserving of those dreams. Whatever our story may be, this is not about whether or not our dreams will come true. But more about our own personal attitude towards life.

Can we find the courage to keep moving forward? Can we learn to create again, using the wisdom that we've gained along the way? We have our dreams for a reason. To show ourself and others that we can create beauty out of our dreams. The beauty of finding a way to grow and evolve. The beauty of recognizing that we do have the power to breathe new life into our dreams. And from there, we can open more pathways to embodying more fully our heart, our mind and our most authentic soul.

Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse! The Moon is conjoining Mercury, Neptune, the Sun and Chiron in Pisces, marking an extra intuitive and transformative New Moon in the sign of the Fish. With a Solar Eclipse happening at the same time, this becomes an amped up New Moon - almost like a Full Moon energy-wise. A New Moon Solar Eclipse in the sign of Pisces brings to the fore matters related to our dreams.

What do we wish to manifest in the next two weeks? What changes are we willing to make in order to bring about new progress? A Solar Eclipse can sometimes herald changes that are beyond our control. But if we are open to the idea of evolution on a mental, emotional and spiritual level we can be more ready to welcome those changes on a physical level.

Sometimes we need to let go of the old before we can open the door and greet the new. Changes, whether big or small, signals a new chapter in our life. Are we ready to turn over a new leaf? Are we willing to go to that next level of soulful transformation? The only way we can let new energy flow into our life now is by moving along with the energies of the universe. By not getting stuck on one page of our life, and by writing new stories that are more in tuned with our soul.

Quiet our mind and listen to the gentle reassurance of our authentic inner voice - and not the judgmental voice of the ego, because that's not who we truly are on a soul level. Stay in a receptive state without worrying about the exact nature of our dream's manifestation, and remember to allow ourself cherish every moment of the journey. 

With the Moon forming a square to Saturn and an opposition to Jupiter Rx, there can be a tendency to over-analyze and focus on the negative. Shift our attention away from thoughts of worry and try to look at the bigger picture. Stay away from what might have been and try to look at what can be.

As we see the future as a place for reaping harvest, we can see the present as a place for planting seeds and watering them. The same goes with seeing the future as a place for reaching goals. We can see the present as a place for implementing our plans and taking the necessary action steps to reach those goals.

The Moon is also forming a sextile to Pluto, and we can channel this penetrating, intense energy into something creative. Something involving deep exploration of the soul can hold much interest. Whatever our choice of expression might be, try to use our imagination to look beyond the visible. Even planning sometimes requires us to have some strategic imagination. To be able to put aside old, tired ideas and beliefs we have and begin to actively rethink the way our dreams can be realized. Because what was strategic yesterday, may not be strategic today.

Venus is still moving through the sign of Aquarius at the time of the New Moon, which is 12 signs away from Pisces. The idea of going away alone or with a loved one to a secluded place may fascinate us. Finding a place for quiet contemplation and self-reflection can be especially healing to our soul at this time. Pisces rules the 12th House in Astrology - aka the last House in the zodiac, or areas in life related to the subconscious mind, intuition, dreams, imaginations and faraway places.

Use this Pisces New Moon period to take some time for ourself. To find someplace relaxing, perhaps near the sea, and to stay away from negative, stressful energy for the sake of our health and well-being. Believe that it is safe for us to dream with an open heart, because we always have within us our soul's bright light and love. It is time we let our dreams guide us towards finding the wisdom and courage to make changes that will lead us to a more authentic, soulful and empowering life.
