We are often so focused on what we will get from another person that we completely forget that love has nothing to do with what you can get and everything to do with what you can give. Love is acceptance. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is not ‘if’ or ‘because’. Love is ‘anyway’ and ‘even though’ and ‘in spite of’. Love is giving someone the permission to feel safe in their own skin. To feel worthy. To feel like they are enough no matter what. Love is to see the beauty in someone’s darkness, and instead of wanting to jump ship, help them to point out their stars
Are you ready to open up and clean out your old wounds so they can heal once and for all? Today’s Full Moon in emotional Pisces, conjunct Chiron – the wounded healer – and accompanied by a powerful Lunar Eclipse, calls for some deep soul searching and letting go. Full Moons are always a good time to release that which isn’t serving us anymore, and an Eclipse being a Full Moon on steroids, today’s Full Moon will open our eyes to our old wounds and deep rooted fears whether we like it or not. Be aware though, that Pisces – ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusion – is a master of escapism, avoiding his emotions, so make sure you’re not walking down that slippery slope, causing your wounds to become even deeper rather than healed. To experience true happiness – which is ultimately what we all want – you have to be willing to get to the depths of your emotions first, however scary that might be. See if you can tap in to some of that earthy, grounding energy of the Virgo Sun to find strength to do this important inner job. Just as a river, this watery Pisces Moon calls us to go with the flow, wherever the flow goes, and that requires you to be brave. It might make you feel raw and vulnerable, but see if you can just let go and accept what is, not always having to find an explanation. Above all this emotional Pisces Moon is here to inspire and give you the courage to face whatever is blocking you at this time. With deep rooted fears you cannot truly love yourself or others, so this Eclipse gives you the chance to heal, release and let go of all the fears that have blocked your heart from being open to emotionally connect with yourself as well as that special someone. It’s time to drop perfection & take that risk. Trust that you are perfect for the heart who is ment to love you. Be compassionate and patient with yourself and others, and let your life and destiny unfold at its own pace. Ultimately, this Full Moon will help you find the truth of your heart and soul, bringing closure, completion and peace of mind. Know that you are worthy of love and happiness. Courage dear heart, there will be smoother sailing after this.
Always trust that when one door closes another opens. I know that this leap of faith is not easy, and that it takes an ongoing practice in surrendering and trusting your process, but the grounding and peace of mind that comes with this faith is so worth it. More often than not The Universe put delays in our lives because there’s still work to be done and we’re not ready yet. If you pay attention, you will see that throughout life you continuously get the teachings you need to open your heart, but as long as we’re not scared of doing the work, we will always get where we’re ment to be ♡ Remember that life is a practice in letting go, and by consistently practice detachment, acceptance and learning to love fearlessly through an open heart, we will find all the things we’ve ever wished for magically lining up in a row. Doors open, opportunities arrives and actions are shown. So be patient with yourself and your process and never ever doubt that the best is yet to come.
The sun and moon has both entered earthy Virgo – the perfectionist of the Zodiac. Virgo season is the perfect time to take care of practical concerns and the details of everyday life, but however wonderful striving for perfection can be, make sure you don’t allow yourself to become overly focused on your flaws, ending up feeling guilty and stressed. Take some time to see the beauty of imperfection and balance out Virgo’s perfectionistic nature with lots of compassion and self-love ♡ As always New Moons are a good time for intention settings and new beginnings, and as this Virgo New Moon coincides with a Solar Eclipse, this is an especially potent time for a fresh start. Take some time for silence and introspection, and feel into where you are ready for new beginnings. Know that you can change everything or nothing at this time. Fill your journal with your dreams, ideas and hopes, and get really clear on what you want. Literally anything is possible now ☆ All the same, Virgo being an Earth sign this Solar Eclipse will also be guiding you to take things slow. Although the door to your new path will open today, it will take the month of September to clearly see where it will be taking you. What is more, as the energy of this eclipse will be influential until the next Solar Eclipse in February next year, this is just the first step. Pay careful attention to what arises today as this will guide you towards what’s in store for you. Mercury – the ruler of Virgo (together with Chiron, some belive) – who shifted retrograde two days ago is also strengthening the slow energy of this Solar Eclipse. Even though it might feel like 2016 has been nothing but retrograde and taking it slow, keep your patience and trust that the Universe brings you this slow energy for a reason. You need tof collect all this information before you can go full speed down your new path, so just breathe and see what this Mercury rx cycle brings for you. Despite the current slow energy, this new cycle is really something to look forward to. It’s strong, powerful & healing, and will be helping you find your truth and inner-strength. So just tune in, listen to your ♡ and drink up the powerful energy of this Eclipse. Send out your wishes to the Universe and trust that everything will come in perfect time.
This joyful, uplifted energy isn’t a matter of luck. It takes ongoing training in mindfulness and maitri – loving kindness – to rest in this loving space. By letting go, dissolving your barriers and opening your heart, you learn to relax with groundlessness, and that is what causes this joyful enthusiasm to emerge ♡ This loving presence is rooted in no expectations, no ambition and no hope of fruition, and by simply and eagerly putting one foot in front of the other and to not get discouraged when you fall flat on your face.
