Lets indulge in some moon talk and reflect over what it means for us
Tonight’s full moon occurs in Libra, which is the sign of relationships
“This full moon will be a penumbral lunar eclipse. This occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon align in an almost straight line. When this happens, the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface, and covers a small part of the Moon with the outer part of its shadow, known as the penumbra. That’s quite significant when you think about the symbolic meaning of the Moon being partially cast within the Earth’s shadow… so what are the kind of shadow traits we’re likely to experience this week ? (Tanishka)
Have you been experiencing conflicts and tensions in your relationships ?
If you’re anything like me, it generally happens when we share our thoughts and feelings with little regard for the other person, because we are too absorbed in our own experience
Sounds very unlike me … (insert giggle, grin and snort)
Have you been experiencing feelings of frustration about doing or giving more than you are getting back ? Do you feel like there is unbalance in your relationship ?
Are you upset or angry about the state of our world ?
If we have been affected by this moon cycle then we are experiencing our shadow self. Therefore its time to refocus our attention from what other people are/aren’t doing and whats happening around us … and instead go WITHIN ourselves
Because the universe is providing us with an opportunity for an inner shift
“ALLOW yourself to be eclipsed, to fully enter into your state of feeling, knowing that this embodiment will transform you” (Tanishka)
The main lesson of Libra is to challenge us to choose love or war ?
I choose LOVE ❤
” We must be the change we want to see in the world”
Are we choosing peace in our thoughts, words and actions or are we suffering ?
Are we choosing to avoid the reflections or are we acknowledging them ?
Are we choosing to take the actions of others personally or are we accepting their truth ?
Are we choosing to listen how we are thinking about others or are we denying how it reflects how we think and feel about ourselves ?
Libra is the sign of BALANCE and so it challenges us to temper our emotions with a logic mind, while avoiding the need to rationalize our emotions
According to astrologers this full moon is also significant in the 20 year cycle of Jupiter and Saturn, which began in the year 2000
So, reflect back to what changed in your life during that time
For me, it was a pivotal part of my journey because it was during my trip back to the UK in February 2000, that I started to question my truth
It was the end of my life as I knew it
It was the beginning of my awakening
In 2000 what hopes and dreams ended for you ?
What was clearing away to make way for the new ?
What happened as a result of those changes ?
Where are you NOW ?
Where do you want to be in 5 years time on this journey ?
Important questions to ask ourselves during this cycle because this is a major turning point in our process of change and growth, which will take almost a year to complete. So, its a good time to check in with our goals and reaffirm any inspirations that motivated us to begin with 5 years ago
What was happening in your world 5 years ago ?
For me, there were several important changes occurring …
I changed direction from psychology to counseling, which was a HUGE shift in perception and changed how I experienced the world from then on
The truth came out about the man I loved and I disconnect from him, which broke my heart open and led me closer towards my own truth
I hosted my first full moon gathering, which was the beginning of working with the energy of other women and the universe
I was starting to experience more conflict with my teenage boys, which was the first of many transitions and adjustments as a mother
My relationship with money was changing, which has changed my thinking about money and is hopefully leading me towards living a life of abundance
The next 5 years of this 20 year cycle of Jupiter and Saturn is about committing more consciously to achieving our goals. If we do, then it will successfully manifest into our reality and we WILL be CREATING the future we imagine
VERY EXCITING TIMES !!!
Now, we ask ourselves …
What needs to be adjusted or changed in our lives ?
Whats holding us back from taking the next step towards the life we want ?
What dreams, inspirations, knowledge, perspective, faith, optimism can carry us forward ?
What must we do to stay on track ?
So, take some time out today to reflect over the goals you want to achieve, the experiences you want to have, the things you want to release and what reality you wish to manifest
Because the energy around this full moon is powerful
Together with the universe, its time to work your magic 🌟
