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.
