In order to shine bright we must first learn to face the darkness
On Tuesday 13th at 10:15 AEST (QLD) we will hit the peak of this month's New Moon in Libra, a teacher of balance, restoration and renewing energy, it’s time to reset and unwind and look at what we have learnt in the past few moons and months. We have had for the past few months all our darkness, past, relationships, communication issues, beliefs and pathways brought back to life due to Mercury, Pluto, Venus and Lillith having retrograde periods. You might already feel the changes as Mercury has gone direct on October 9, but will continue to teach us its lessons of communication until October 24th when its path is clear and all is deeply learned. So if you haven’t listened to its teachings or have been resisting its calls then listen here or accept your place among all your relationships- life is relationships so this simply doesn’t speak of love or romantic relationships, but your relation to the world, humanity, family, work, wealth, self worth, love, friendships, community, the future, the cosmos and of course your higher self. Pluto going direct has meant we have seen the end of our death and rebirth cycle as far as the planet has allowed, Pluto is the planet of death with also means rebirth so you may have learnt a lot about what no longer serves you, you may have hinted at leaving your job or ending a relationship, New Moons are significant in NEW BEGINNINGs, so here is your chance to really go within and clear out what isn’t necessary and communicate your intentions loud and clear, what are you shifting away from? How are you fulfilling your goals in every moment. Are you being truly authentic and what does integrity and authenticity really mean to you? These are questions which by now you should have truly mastered and know in all your being the answers to, if you feel unsure then sit down and meditate for a few minutes on each question. It’s so important for us to be clear in our communication and Mercury was teaching us just that, it seeks for us to find and use our true voice, so don’t be afraid, resist being shy and realise your voice is unlike any other and so magnificent and essential to this planet's prosperity.
We have seen lately more and more drama, hurt, political unrest, wealth inequality and nations suffering under siege, but this is no new news, this has been happening for decades the world over, what we have now is the ability to shine a light on the darkness and to bring forth the peace, prosperity and harmony we all truly seek. Without recognising our personal shadows or that of the collective we cannot truly foresee or accept change for the better. So in setting your intentions and releasing what is unwanted or no longer needed be honest with yourself and look deeply at your shadows, what makes you feel fear, where do you resist the spotlight, how can you shine your light 24/7 and what makes your ego jump out and protect your spirit? Our ego can often be hidden within our deepest darkest fears and the only way to realise these is simply to face, realise accept and forgive ourselves of them. There is nothing to be ashamed of here, we all have our own unique and perfectly designed journeys so be kind and love yourself generously and give yourself the time to listen, speak and uncover what lies beneath the surface of that beautiful skin and soul of yours.
We are coming to a point where each of us is discovering and seeking out our true soul purpose. What does this earth walk journey mean to you and how will you contribute to humanity in a way that enriches your life and the lives of those around you? With so much going on and so much potential being available it is imperative that each of us truly walk with purpose. Nothing matters more than this moment so make sure that each moment counts for something. Use your time wisely to build your empire and make sure that while serving yourself your main goal is to serve and love others first. If we begin to seek a journey that is selfish instead of selfless we can find our ego takes hold and we begin to have hiccups, blockages, come to crossroads or even face injury or illness, so be true to your heart and your community and make sure that your purpose is aligned with all that is, this will ensure success and fruition of your dreams and aspirations.
Use this new moon to reset the clock, take some time out, rest, recover and rejuvenate yourself, take the time for some pampering, it’s Spring so add a new colour to your hair, buy yourself that new pair of shoes or go out and find that secret waterfall. Nourish yourself body, mind and spirit and feel the inner workings of this cosmic alignment as you dedicate your practice and time to yourself, without filling your cup first nothing is possible, not work, not creativity or any outpouring of energy so exquisite self care and sincere self love are essential right now. We have had a huge busy few months so take a seat and reflect on what has been, what could be better and what success you have achieved so far.
Libra the sign of balance is a master of beauty and health so don’t skimp on yourself this new moon. take the time to check in with your intentions of the past, see what has been achieved and what you ignored which actually is in alignment with your true path. What were you seeking that would please others and what truly would make you feel whole, nurtured and proud. Think about the distant future and looking back how you would be proud of the steps you have put into place and how they allow you to truly flower in your full higher self here on earth.
Allow yourself to be present in each moment and go with the flow, don’t resist the urges and changes coming to you but rather embrace what is coming while remaining grounded and standing in your truth. Be open to opportunities and prosperity, realising that we are the root cause of our own demise, blockages and mishaps, by accepting our true beauty wholeheartedly we can access our limitless possibilities, so shine bright this new moon and love deeply.
