New Moon in Pisces | The Power in Our Now



● | ● | ● | ●

New Moon in Pisces:
Don't let pain crush your confidence. Let it build your resilience.

Recognizing the power in our now is one of the first steps to letting go of fear of the future as well as building and growing our resilience. Realizing the power we have in our now leaves less room for fear to take root and influence our lives. When we permeate our present with fear, we lose our trust in ourselves, and because of this, we also lose our trust in life. By using the present to worry about the future, we rob the joy from today to mourn the joy we may not have tomorrow.

Perhaps we are trying to protect ourselves from pain, because we have been disappointed by life far too many times. When in reality, we are just overwhelming ourselves with endless what-ifs and worst-case scenarios. It's about time that we understood the difference between worrying and problem-solving. Because one revolves around the illusion of control through anticipating difficulties, whereas the other is about defining the problem and identifying the steps to solve it. In other words, one is passive while the other is active.

When we permeate our present with fear, we lose our trust in
ourselves, and because of this, we also lose our trust in life.

Passively worrying limits our minds and prevents us from thinking of alternate scenarios. Instead of wasting our time with worry, we can begin to shift our perspective by asking ourselves, "Is this the only way this experience could play out?" or "What can I learn from this experience so that I don't have to repeat the same problem in the future?" Actively channeling our energy into problem-solving boosts our willpower and builds our resilience through pain and adversity.

By seeing a painful moment as an opportunity to evolve, we can begin the process of shedding the skin of the past and growing newer and thicker skin. By recognizing that an old part of us is dying and a new part of us is emerging, we will see that our lives are unfolding as they should.

Happy New Moon! The Moon is conjoining Mercury, the Sun, Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, marking a magical and healing New Moon in the sign of the Fish. This particular New Moon also happens to be a Solar Eclipse, bringing to light areas in our lives that need to change and guiding us to move from one level of awareness to the next. With a Solar Eclipse happening in one of the Water signs, emotions can be heightened, and with increased sensitivity.

We have learned from our experiences before and we know what works and doesn't work for us. Neptune and Chiron are empowering us to approach life from a meta-level — using our spiritual intelligence to solve problems with more wisdom and compassion without being distracted by drama. Maintaining inner and outer peace shouldn't be about avoidance of reality, but about facing reality with the awareness of and ability to separate the voice of Higher Self from the Ego self.

The Moon in Pisces is forming a sextile to Pluto, and we have the strength and inner courage to stand our ground, no matter how challenging things may appear. We are being asked to stay true to our core values and not succumb to the currents of fear. We have been through so much to get to this point, and scars we acquired have made us who we are today. We may also notice that we have been experimenting with new attitudes and thought patterns, and this feeds our spirit and offers us glimpses of new possibilities.

With the Moon's square to Saturn, we need to stand back for clarity and see the bigger picture. Sometimes blocks and challenges appear on our path to remind us of loose ends that need to be tied up before we can move forward. The Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse is a time to leave behind what was once familiar in search for new horizons. A time to go within to reclaim our power as well as to reaffirm to ourselves, "I am not my fears. I am not my pain. I have the power to make changes, and I trust the process of my ever-changing and ever-growing life."

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.
