★ALL New Moons have the strongest effect on us 3 days prior and up to 3 days after ★

The Moon is New in Virgo, the Virgin, on Monday, August 25th, at 7:13am {pacific time}.

New Moons are a time of starting over, new beginnings, taking action steps towards your dreams and goals, creating and renewal!

                                                                                        

The Moon is hooked up with the Sun in the practical, reserved, and service oriented sign of Virgo. Virgo is a meticulous sign that pays attention to detail, values planning and organizing and can be a little nit-picky in it’s approach. The energy is grounded, communicative, courteous and at times a little cranky about things being done a specific way. Virgo values health, healing and what your daily habits are that establish a healthy lifestyle and self-care.

This New Moon wants you to see where in your life you can begin to draw up a detail oriented plan of action that lists facts and uses logic towards what it is you want to create in this area of your life. Virgo prefers to do the right thing, choose logic and stay level headed.

 

How can you be of service to yourself and others?

Are you caring for your own needs and health?

What needs to be organized into a plan of action?

 

During this New Moon Neptune {planet of deception, illusion & imagination} is opposing both the Moon and Sun. This brings confusion and inability to see things as clearly and realistically as the Virgo New Moon would like us to. You can however make significant improvements when you balance your active imagination with grounded application towards your dreams. Pay close attention to details of all kinds instead of allowing yourself to get swept up in dreamland/fantasy. Avoid vague and unclear communications as it is easy to be deceived and confused now. Be precise with how you talk, what you write and how you think. If you are unclear on something that has been communicated to you, CLARIFY. With Mercury{mind} combining creative energies with Mars{action} & Saturn{discipline}, the mind is curious now and you can come up with solutions to any health or work challenges if you take your time to understand. Concentration is on your side and if you put your thoughts in order you will have much energy & discipline to achieve your ambitions and goals. Use your drive and any frustration that comes up productively. KNOW YOUR LIMITS and stay within them.

Plus, with Jupiter{expansion} and Uranus{sudden change} there is an excitement in that comes with expanding your mind and beliefs. Finding other ways to further educate yourself  through travel, meeting new people of different backgrounds, learning new techniques and tools that increase your awareness {technical studies, humanitarianism, astrology, oracle, tarot, metaphysical studies etc} will make you feel uplifted and excited about life and the opportunities for the future. Visions can come to you easily now and you may embark on some new, original and eccentric paths now. Jupiter is also hooked up with Venus {love & kindness} which means compassion, generosity and a sympathetic nature are predominant and you can make a difference in you social circle by expressing all of the love you have to give and sharing your love & gifts generously.

Mercury is also in a nice angle to Pluto {insight & transformation} making the study of anything mystical, spiritual/occult significant. You have great insight and intuition available to you regarding your health and habits and what you can do to improve upon them seeing beneath the surface now and into the deeper aspects what is driving you to rise above or stay stuck.

 

Overall, this New Moon in Virgo is asking us to explore the interplay between matter and spirit, between our head and our heart. Our focus should be on a holistic approach to healing. This New Moon is also asking us to explore how we can best use our time, energy, and talent to heal our bodies and serve humanity. But as they tell us when we fly, we need to put the oxygen mask on ourselves first and then help those around us. We all should use this time to find new ways to fill our own inner “well.” Only when we do this will we be in a position to give to others from a place of wholeness, health, and clarity of purpose. So you may want to ask yourself, Ready to feel good? Fuel your life with movement, healthy people, healthy food, healthy choices, and a whole lot of love.” (Cheryl Richardson)

LOVE

Venus {planet of Love} is in the sign of Leo and you are probably feeling very generous with your love and affection. In addition, Venus is sending good vibes to Uranus{originality & insight} and gives you an intuitive edge into all of your relationships, lending you extra sparkle and shine. However, Venus is in a difficult relationship with Saturn & Mars so if we’re not careful we can act too impulsively in ways that we may later regret. Blurting things out that we don’t think twice before saying can cut deep. Think before you speak without trying to turn up the charm so much. This aspect can make romantic affairs difficult if hurtful words are said or high expectations are imposed upon others. Fear of being rejected, not seen or acknowledged can leave you feeling unloved. But there may be more of a need to be seen now. Let go of being overly concerned about what others think of you and just be yourself.

If single, Charisma and magnetism are abundant and you are likely to be drawn to interesting unique types who draw you in with their charm. Someone who is a leader, generous and loves to do things in a big way is attractive now.

 

LESSON

★ Be a Precise in your communications

★ Be more Logical and less Emotional

★ Be Realistic about what is possible

★ Be Clear about what you want to create for your health, in your work & daily life

★ Be willing to find where better Health & Healing is possible

★ Be Organized when putting together a plan of action

Full SUPER Moon in Aquarius-Get YOUr Freak on!

Posted on: August 10th, 2014 2 Comments

Full Moon in Aquarius: Be a Freak, Be a Visionary, Be YOU to FULL

J-Ma’s Moon Influences

SUNDAY, AUGUST 10th  

11:09am Pacific Time

aquarius

★ALL Full Moons have the strongest effect on us 3 days prior and up to 3 days after ★

The Moon is Full in Aquarius on Sunday, August 10th, at 11:09am {pacific time}.

Full Moons are a time of Manifestation, Contemplation, Balance, Realization and Letting Go!

 

SUPER MOON

This full moon happens to be a SUPER MOON which means that the intensity level is heightened. It’s a time when the moon is brighter and closer to the Earth than usual and we are said to be able to feel its magical magnetic pull even stronger.

The moon is in Aquarius {rebellion, freedom, eccentricity, vision & humanitarianism} and is opposite the sun in Leo {recognition, drama, creativity, self, heart-centered living & love}.

Aquarius, the Water Bearer, brings what is essential to the group and humanity. They prefer freedom to stand out from the crowd while still contributing in a useful way. Caring detachment is their style and they like to shake things up by expressing themselves in a way that may seem strange to society. They are considered the eccentrics of the zodiac, mainly because they are ahead of their time and unafraid to let their ‘inner freak’ out. They have vision and are progressive thinkers, seeing ahead they often know what is needed before others do because they have foresight, logic and a deep inner knowing. If challenged or suppressed they can become rebellious and erratic. This is the energy that the full moon in Aquarius brings.

The moon being opposite the sun in Leo is asking you to shine the light on how you can let your inner freak out and share what is unique about you with the world! Do YOU, Shine your light and be of service to humanity while doing it. Let your rebellion have a purpose to share your creative gifts, your talents and your love with the world.

How can you shake up your inner world and find the uniqueness that lies within you?

Can you let the old structure crumble and fall only to build again in your own way?

Are you able to let your weird side show and take the risk of being called a freak? Or do you crave the approval of others over your own inner approval?

It’s time to share your eccentric visions with the world. The Moon {emotions & sensitivity} is opposite Mercury {communication & logic} leaving you at odds between what you feel and what you think; Logic vs. Emotion.

You have the ability to expand your sense of self in the community and bring focus and vitality to the work you love through self-expression in a fun and creative way. Find the balance between trying to over rationalize and over think things and being overly dramatic and self-centered. If feelings are suppressed or the need to exert your authenticity & life force energy is held back, due to your insecurities-a need for complete and total approval from others, then you could end up acting out erratically and unexpectedly in a rebellious way. Be at home with your weirdness in a way that is so confident there is no need for the approval of others. Balance the two seemingly opposite energies of emotion and logic and you will find that your unique expression comes more easily. Being too aloof and detached distances you from others and giving too much in order to receive the approval of others leaves you being untrue to yourself.

Saturn {planet of constrictions, restraint & lessons} is forming a T-Square with our Sun and Moon. There can be real self-doubt that occurs now and the tendency to put limits and restrictions on yourself due to insecurities in your own abilities. A sense that you are not enough and don’t have the talents or ability to be successful could haunt you at an intense level but this would be occurring only in your mind. Your limited perspective of your self is what will hold you back now. Use the focus that is available to you. Let the moon light up your visions for the future and see the limitless possibilities that are ahead.

With Mars now in Scorpio and hooking up with Saturn you can put your efforts toward achieving your goals with extreme dedication. First, you MUST believe in yourself. Seek not the approval of others, but your OWN approval.  Stay clear of allowing self-hatred, jealousy, and feelings of inadequacy to hold you back. Instead, focus on where your unique strengths and abilities lie and dedicate your time and attention to bringing this forth in a structured way. Lay the building blocks. Take the steps.

If there is struggle without, there is struggle within. Much of what is being felt is coming up from the past; what you learned growing up, from your parents, family, past relationships and experiences. If you notice feelings coming up from the past that are keeping you held back, small, in fear or doubt, these feelings are no longer valid or useful.

Your physical energy could be low now. If you find this to be true examine how your own pessimistic and negative attitude is affecting your physical body and health. Use awareness, meditation, affirmations or talking to someone you can trust about these feelings. You can transform and change your perspective once you address your own inner issues that are keeping you restricted and quit buying in to your own negative self-image. What are the beliefs you have bought into about yourself costing you? Cut the chord to any attachments from the past that are diminishing your self-confidence.

aquarius symbol TEXT

Once you make the connection to that part of you who feels like the ‘freak’, and accept what is unique & wonderful about you, your new glowing perspective and self-image will captivate those around you and bring you the success you deserve.

“It is your choice, if you wish, to continue limiting your life, but it is not inevitable; limitations are only imaginary parameters which we draw around ourselves as a barrier; they can be erased or expanded.” {astromatrix.org}

 

On August 15th Mercury will move out of Leo and into Virgo its home sign. We can think practically and constructively now. Mercury is comfortable here and brings great focus and attention to details. There’s more versatility in our thinking. Don’t give in to worry and stay open to the bigger picture.

Mars moved into Scorpio at the end of July and is staying there until mid-September determination, willpower and sex drive is increased. Power and control is desired and impatience to wait for what we want is high. Releasing frustration through sexuality is likely. There may be excessive in our actions, jumping into things without thinking. Take time to breathe and use caution. Leaping ahead will bring frustration and accidents.

LOVE

Mars has been in an uncomfortable angle to the Sun and we have felt discontent in love, either falling out of love, feeling a lack of love, or desiring someone who is unattainable. This energy will ease up now and leave more room for affection and enjoyment.

Venus moves out of Cancer and into Leo on August 12th. We go from desiring privacy and snuggling up at home to grand gestures and dramatic displays of love. Now, we want to be seen with our partners and be seen by our partners. Socializing, entertainment, fun and romance are on the rise.

If single, we find ourselves attracted and pleased by those who display these same qualities and steal our heart in a big way. Intense emotion and affection are what we want now. Generosity and luxury is what we love.

LESSON

★ Be okay with your inner freak

★ Let what is unique about you come forth with confidence

★ Find the balance between your intellectual nature and your feeling nature

★ Be willing to dedicate time, patience and focus to what you desire

★ Transform self-doubt and a negative self-image into self-acceptance and a confidence for who you are, with all your eccentricities and flaws.

★ Let go of limitations you have created in your mind from past conditioning so you can have the success you deserve and live the life you want

Are you sad? So, what!

Is there something ‘wrong’ with being sad?

sad eyes

Recently, I posted the picture above on social media and it sparked some comments of there being ‘sadness’ in my eyes.

It has occurred to me that so often I am smiling and laughing that people tend to see me in a certain way. Which in turn has left me feeling pressured to appear a certain way. I’m over that. You know what’s depressing? Trying to live up to an unrealistic image that you, or others, have set for you.

Yeah, there’s sadness in my eyes because there has been pain in my life! And I don’t want to shrink from and hide who I am. I don’t want to give a false impression so that others feel they are the only ones.

So what. I feel sad sometimes and angry and jealous and defeated.

Being an Empath I pick up on the unspoken, what is being felt around me, VERY easily. In some ways this is fortunate and in other ways it is very challenging. As a Yoga Teacher I try to focus on positivity and growth. I do my best to find the happiness wherever I am. When I feel things I feel them DEEPLY. Whether it be Happiness or Sadness or Anger or Love I feel it to the fullest extent. ALL THE WAY.

From a young age I decided I won’t be afraid of showing what I feel. I refuse. Any time I have tried it has only manifested in my physical body as a sickness almost immediately. Suppression is NOT THE WAY. Emotions that are stuffed turn into Dis-Ease in the body. Yes, there is a time and a place for everything and others must also be taken into consideration. I prefer to be conscious of the energy I am bringing around others as often as possible. UNLESS it is for artistic expression, I HAVE NO DESIRE TO REPRESENT A FALSE IMAGE OF SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T EXIST IN THIS WORLD.

 

We all have sadness. You know why?? Because we’re alive!

 

There are hardships, pain and all kinds of suffering to be experienced as humans beings. If we aren’t experiencing it directly then we experience it through our interconnectedness. When others suffer, we suffer just the same. The pain that is going on in this world hurts me deeply. Yet, I realize that it starts with me. If there is war in countries I must focus on letting go of the war within me and the war I have with others. That’s what I can do from MY standpoint. That’s how I can make an impact in my immediate environment, and so can you.

today Im sad

Comparatively, I won’t deny I have lived a blessed life in MANY ways, but there is no point in comparison. In MANY ways I have suffered through much emotional pain as well. I have had nothing but strained to non-existent relationships with my father{s}. Which, has led to tumultuous and confusing love relationships and strained relationships with the opposite sex in general. I’ve experienced and witnessed physical & emotional abuse. In my short 36yrs of life I’ve already been married and divorced.

When I was a child I saw things happen to innocent children that I felt so helpless about and SO strongly about, that I haven’t ever even been able to make a decision to have children of my own. Raising children is thee single most IMPORTANT role anyone can have. And it should be taken VERY seriously.I feel as if I’ve lived a lifetime already.

I love my family with all of my heart but I grew up feeling like the black sheep, disconnected and out of place. Through hard work and a lot of adjustment I’ve come to accept that we just don’t relate in the same way and that’s okay. We don’t have bonds of similar interests, beliefs or even hobbies. Thankfully, I had a mom who loved me so hard she bent over backwards to make me feel loved and balance out many of the imbalances. She made me believe I was worth something, as if I had a chance. This was my saving grace. I’m sharing a piece of my personal story not for pity. But, more to lay out on the line the imperfections that have plagued my life just as much as anyone else.

I want to be seen for who I am in each moment and not as an image projected on to me. I have worked HARD to turn my life and attitude around and I have so much more work to do. I am not always happy and I don’t want to pretend to be. I don’t have to. Neither do you.

If you see ANYONE in this world and think, “They are always happy. They have it so easy. They are so good looking, so talented, so blessed, so….problem free”, you are lying to yourself. I think as humans we need to feel like this exists. Either to hang on to hope or to play the victim. As if the one who is always looking happy, or making money, or getting opportunities, or saying positive things must have it all figured out. They are better than us right? They are better than me. They are better than you? THAT is an illusion and it’s detrimental to YOUR HAPPINESS!

 

DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU SEE!

{Especially on social media!}

 

There’s no benefit in holding onto this illusion of others anymore. This is what causes suffering. Nothing is perfect. WE ALL HAVE PAIN. As long as we’re alive we will never escape it. The good news is that we can STILL be happy. We can still have happiness. These emotions are not one or the other. They are one in the same.

burn pain as fuel

I focus on growth and positivity as much as possible. I said, AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. That doesn’t mean ALWAYS. Sometimes, I HURT deeply. Sometimes it is memories from the past that haunt me, other times it is feeling as if I am not enough in the present moment, and yet other times I just feel pain for reasons I don’t fully understand; the hurt of the world, the pain I witness around me, the need to want to heal it all and the reality that I cannot. I used to HATE crying, showing sadness, receiving sympathy. NOW, I embrace it. I WANT to cry.

CRY! BE SAD! That means that you are releasing more pain and you are one step closer to feeling better.

 

ONCE YOU’VE WALKED THROUGH THE DARKNESS YOU WILL APPRECIATE THE LIGHT

 

Here’s my point: THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING SAD. We don’t need to rush it, fix it, suppress it, or hide it. We just need to feel it, sit with it, and be in it fully WITHOUT SHAME.

You’re not the only one who feels sadness, inadequacy, incompetence, fear, less than. We ALL do. Some are just better at hiding.

You don’t have to hide. You just need to allow yourself to be HUMAN. Those of us who want growth and are on a spiritual path forget that we are also here to be human and UNTIL WE LEARN IT’S OKAY TO BE HUMAN WE WILL HAVE MISSED THE WHOLE POINT of this experience on Earth.

FEEL. BE SAD withOUT shame. Love yourself anyways.

New Moon in Leo Conjunct Jupiter – Radiate Confidence, Live from your Heart!

NEW MOON IN LEO: Be Creative, Be Passionate, Be Courageous

NEW MOON IN LEO

SATURDAY, JULY 26th 2014

3:42pm {pacific time}

 

★ALL New Moons have the strongest effect on us 3 days prior and up to 3 days after ★

 

The Moon is New in Leo, the Lion, on Saturday, July 26th, at 3:42pm {pacific time}.

New Moons are a time of starting over, new beginnings, taking action steps towards your dreams and goals, creating and renewal!

The moon is hooked up with our sun in the dramatic, heart centered, creative and passionate sign of Leo. Leo is a fun loving sign that enjoys socializing, children, attention and affection. The energy is generous, giving, prideful and playful. This New Moon wants us to see where we can expand our ideas and beliefs about our self and the way we show up in the world.

How do you express what is in your heart?

Do you seek attention for the sake of attention or are you leading from a place of pure creativity and love?

With Jupiter {planet of opportunity & expansion} also connecting with our Sun and Moon, we are feeling upbeat and optimistic about the future now and can see all the possibilities before us. The future is beaming with opportunity to spread our wings and share what we are passionate about with the world. This influence brings confidence and a desire for adventure. Moving courageously towards your dreams is favored now. Be sure you are not so overly confident in your ability now that you are being prideful and arrogant. Jupiter blesses you with the vision to see the bigger picture for what you want to create and the life you want to live just don’t act like a know it all in the process. If we are not given the opportunity we believe we deserve we can become frustrated and angry. If it is meant to be, it will be. Let things happen, as they flow from your heart, without force or an egotistical need for acknowledgment. Instead, express and create for the pure satisfaction of creation and serving those around you who are willing to receive it. Lead the way by being the Light.

We want to stand up for what we believe in and we have the strength to do it. Helping pave the way for those we see in need of support and getting 100% behind what we believe in comes easy to us. It’s good to be passionate and stand for a cause. It’s also good to make sure we are not being so stubborn that it turns into argumentativeness and does not serve the purpose. Mars {planet of aggression & action} is in an uncomfortable position to the Moon now so it is easy to fly off the handle with our emotions. We are feeling more independent and want to stand on our own. This independence coupled with excessive energy, pride and strength could make you far too aggressive if you are not aware. Don’t suppress any anger that comes up as suppressed anger will come out at the sacrifice of your good health.

Be aware of making everything about you to the point you damage your reputation and diminish your opportunities. Domestic disputes are possible now as well as struggles with women in your life or possibly your parents.

We want to do things so BIG and on such a large scale now that we run the risk of over dramatizing everything and impulsive overreaction. Stay in your heart. When you know who you are and what is truly important to you there will be no need for outside applaud.

It’s hard to relax now because we desire so much social activity, adventure and stimulation. Use your energy to get your projects and ideas off the ground and flying! If you can stay focused and maintain control over your impulses you can really make a difference now. Too much risk taking and not enough thinking things through can lead to accidents and regrets.

LOVE

Venus {planet of Love} is in the sign of Cancer making us feel like we need our family and loved one even more than usual. This influence brings a sense of attachment and a need for comfort and quiet nights in. It’s important that we connect with the one we love emotionally and feel safe and secure enough to do this. However, Venus is opposing Pluto {planet of intense interaction} and this magnifies the intensity in our love relationships. To love or control? To connect and meet our needs emotionally or logically in a more financially practical kind of way? These are the questions. There are manipulative behaviors at play, a need for dominance. Issues that bubble up from the subconscious could lead to conflict and emotional distancing. A need for excitement and autonomy can bring fresh experiences to your love life if you stay flexible and see that you can be part of something while still keeping your own perspective and independence. Stability can be found when we express tenderness and compassion towards the one we love.

If single, You are attracted to a more quiet type that is nurturing and sensitive. You may be feeling cautious but crave more excitement and connection. Make sure that if entering into a relationship now you stay realistic in your approach. Don’t get caught in the web of illusion. If you stay grounded you can make your dream of a secure and stable relationship a reality.

“Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold, if we will just have the courage to admit what it is. What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us.” (Julia Cameron)

Old Wounds & Deepest Fears…Do they control you or do you control them?

How often do you notice yourself acting from old wounds instead of love?

A couple things have inspired me this week to contemplate and now share here with you. One of those things being this picture….

choose love

These past couple of years I have become extremely conscious, more so than ever before in my life, of how I act and react and when I am acting from deeply rooted wounds from the past {or maybe past lives}. This has brought me so much awareness and made it possible for me to refrain many times from reacting. Except for it’s not always so simple. Even WITH awareness your feelings, your fears and old wounds can run so deep that they get the best of you. That’s when you have to remind yourself IT IS A PRACTICE, not a perfect.

I know that what I want to do is help not harm, I love so intensely that I tend to hurt just as intensely. Can you relate??

When I share guidance or insight it is NEVER to say I know what is best for you because I am sitting in the ‘throne’ of all knowing. In actuality, it is in the process of learning for myself. Sharing the conversations and advice I would speak to my SELF when I am in need of it. If it resonates in my soul as helpful and healing and I feel inspired to do so, then I share with you so you may find the same healing IF you are in the same place and IF it is the right time for you.

I don’t care who you are there WILL be times old wounds & fears get the best of you. Even those of us who have chosen to be on the path of understanding, transformation, ‘enlightenment’. It’s not an easy path. Enlightenment isn’t as woo woo as it sounds. If you are on this path you know that you are acting courageously to shine the light on those dark places within, those places where there’s now cobwebs. Those places within where you thought the wound was healed only to find out that it was just scabbed over and someone or something rubbed up against it so fiercely that it peeled right off and began to bleed all over again. Now, what? You are in so much pain all you can do is cry, scream, kick and feel angry. “How DARE YOU open that wound! I thought this pain was gone?! Now I have to deal with it all over again? NOW I have to be reminded of this hurt and what caused it in the first place?!”

So, you react. You react from the place of hurt, the old wound you THOUGHT was healed. That’s the problem with thinking. It messes everything up. All you had to do was feel. ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS SIT WITH THE PAIN UNTIL IT FADED, cry it out until the tears were gone. But, you couldn’t. You wanted them to hurt the same way you did because you were hurt SO VERY DEEPLY.

How do you heal these wounds from the past? Can you? I believe you can.

~Allow yourself to feel all of the ugly emotions without reacting.

~Acknowledgment is key.

If you ignore these wounds they will only get infected. You may think they’re okay until someone brushes up against them and the puss explodes!

Can you love your wounds instead?

Can you find a way to acknowledge your wounds without lashing out?

Can you nurture the pain within?

Can you rub a little medicine on your wounds? The medicine of pure acceptance & forgiveness.

This has been my journey.

Some of us are more sensitive and emotional than others. Some of us have experienced much worse than others. But, we’re all the same in that we’ve ALL experienced pain. We ALL have old wounds. We can ALL benefit from the love and acceptance from ourselves.

First, we have to be okay with feeling the way that we do about something. We have to accept that it’s okay to feel angry, sad and like we don’t matter. THEN, we can remind ourselves that it’s okay to be afraid that we’re not enough. It’s okay to mess up and feel stupid. It’s okay to be imperfect. It’s okay to hurt. It’s okay to cry. And MOST of all, it is SAFE to allow healing. Often we are rooted in our pain because we feel it defines us. The ego is TERRIFIED to let it go. WHO would you be if you didn’t have your pain to define you?!

Ahhhh, the ‘Ego’. We hear so much about this. What is it? We all have ego. Frankly, I’m sick of anyone saying we need to get rid of the ego!

Trying to get rid of ego is like trying to not be human any longer. You don’t need to get rid of it.

You are here to experience it as a human being on this Earth. All you have to do is manage it. Don’t allow it to get out of hand. As with everything, work towards moderation and remember it is not who you really are. Ego is a sense of self-importance whether it is you feeling ‘less than’ or ‘more than’ instead of ‘one with’.

When you are on the path to expand your mind and consciousness, your Self then you begin to notice where you are shrinking back. As in, always being concerned with what others think of your actions or what others are doing, what they believe or how they perceive you. That isn’t authentic living. That isn’t a heart centered life. I know it can be challenging to let this go. I have realized lately just how often I don’t post something or say something only because I’m concerned with how people see me.

This week I am challenging myself and I ask you to join me. Always with regard to how you are affecting another and never with a conscious intention to harm……

CAN YOU NOTICE WHEN YOU AVOID EXPRESSING SOMETHING THAT YOUR HEART AND SOUL DESIRES ONLY BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT TO OFFEND ANYONE WITH WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU BELIEVE? Will you honor your hearts wishes and express anyways?

When you feel hurt and you sense the Ego rising up can you sit with the pain and feel your emotions instead, finding what it is they have to teach you?

When you see yourself shrinking from shining your light out of fear of being judged or that you are not good enough, Can you stop judging yourself and remember your worth?

Here is another part of my inspiration and realization of shrinking from the light. One of my most favorite poems that I just happened to hear someone share this week….

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Full Moon in Capricorn: Be Strong enough to Be less Controlling, Be Committed to Growth

super moon.jpg CAPRICORN

J-Ma’s Moon Influences

SATURDAY, JULY 12th
4:24am Pacific Time

★ALL Full Moons have the strongest effect on us 3 days prior and up to 3 days after ★

The Moon is Full in Capricorn on Saturday, July 12th, at 4:24am {pacific time}.
Full Moons are a time of Manifestation, Contemplation, Balance, Realization and Letting Go!

SUPER MOON

This full moon happens to be a SUPER MOON which means that the intensity level is heightened. It’s a time when the moon is brighter and closer to the Earth than usual and we are said to be able to feel its magical magnetic pull even stronger.

The moon is in Capricorn which brings our focus to control, commitment, and achievement on our choice of path. We need to let go of trying to control the circumstances of our lives, career, relationships {business & personal} and commit to following our inner most needs and desires in order to achieve the success we hope for.

The moon being opposite the sun in Cancer, is concerned with finding a balance between detachment and attachment, our inner needs and our outer needs and what we choose to commit to in order to find happiness.

Old Habits and Outdated Beliefs around what fulfills us at the deepest levels, materially and emotionally, are up for release. Capricorn has to do with the material world, our achievements, responsibilities, authority, career and public reputation. The influence of this sign means business and they are dedicated and committed to achieving their aims. Often this happens at the expense of their personal needs, their family’s needs and the needs of those they love. We need to see where in our life we are overexerting our authority, where can we release some control in regards to our careers and goals and tend to our needs and the needs of others.

Release control over what it is that you want to ‘achieve’ and commit to doing what feels right at the deepest level instead of letting material gain be your focus.

The moon in Capricorn takes responsibility seriously. Being in touch with the emotions is not always the easiest thing with this influence since Capricorn energy prefers to stay logical, cool, cautious and detached. There is a need to control others and especially with the moon conjunct Pluto {planet of intensity & power}. This brings more intensity to the emotions and we can feel more deeply our need to let the past die. The need to let go of what was and has been is strong now. Plutos influence can be intense and release won’t come without some deep inner work. Don’t allow yourself to succumb to the feelings of loneliness, self doubt and depression that this moon in Capricorn can bring. Emotional outbursts are highly likely and wanting to exert our will & power over others is something that may be hard to resist. We want to control what others feel and how they act. Stay strong enough to control your own attitudes, feelings and perspectives and be LESS controlling of those around you.

We would be wise not to exert our will or push our personal agenda and selfish wants on others right now. The moon is squaring Uranus {Planet of community & rash action} and our impulsive actions could lead to abrupt backlash that threatens our reputation and social standing within your community.

Thankfully, the sweet influence of Saturn {planet of responsibility and karmic lessons}, Capricorns ruling planet, gives us the ability to be able to look beyond outward appearances and see the depths of the emotions that have been keeping us in the dark. We can see these feelings honestly now and begin to transform them using our power to heal and dedicate our passions to something that is worthwhile to us, fulfilling our deepest desires.

If you use your charm and powers of persuasion right and for the highest good, you can manifest exactly what you have been working so hard for.

We may doubt ourselves, feeling vulnerable, exposed and protective over expressing exactly how you feel. But with Jupiter {planet of luck, expansion and possibilities} teamed up with the sun in Cancer we can also find inspiration and optimism when we look within and apply ourselves and talents in a productive and ambitious manner.

Is what you have chosen to commit to controlling your life?

Are you committed to what brings you the most inner contentment or are you overly focused on outward appearances?

Is self-doubt causing you to act from fear by overcommitting to people and situations to try and control what you feel is out of control?

Are you doubting so much that you are prohibiting your own forward progress and constricting your contentment?

With the Cardinal Grand Cross still in effect, the need to break free from any traditions that leave us feeling restricted is still strong. We want to express ourselves in our own unique way and will resist any authority figures who try to force us into the old way of doing things. It’s important to remember that just because someone is in a position of authority does NOT mean that they know what is best for us.

The only life you have to live is YOUR LIFE, so LIVE IT Your Way!

URANUS RETROGRADE JULY 22 to DECEMBER 21

Uranus goes retrograde this month and this will stimulate more psychological investigation within ourselves. A desire to understand WHY is more prominent and a rebellious nature could turn more inward and become suppressed only to burst out at a moment’s notice.

LOVE

In Relationships we are ready to love and commit. With Venus in a sweet angle to affectionate Mars we seek pleasure, fun, affection, and passion. We are feeling serious about our love affairs and particular about who and what we desire. Possibly to the point of obsessing or fixating on a specific person or on qualities we feel strongly attracted to. We are interested in more depth of conversation and intensity now. Power struggles are likely so make sure to be open to the needs of those you love.

If single, if you meet someone new grace and charm is abundant but resist the urge to jump in too quickly. Ask yourself if the person you are considering has enough depth and passion for your liking or if this is a fleeting physical attraction.

Venus moves out of light and airy Gemini and into sensitive and nurturing Cancer on Friday, July 18th. If you’re in a relationship you will begin feeling more sentimental and like snuggling up and enjoying connection with a loved one in the privacy of your home now. If single, don’t box yourself up at home. Meeting someone will be more likely through close friends and family and your attitude will be less flirtatious and more cautious when choosing who to spend your time with.

LESSON

★ Make a commitment to what you want to accomplish
★ Release the need to control people and situations
★ Live your life YOUR WAY
★ Stand up for what you believe in
★ Use your charm and power of persuasion to manifest that which you desire
★ Stay committed to your goals and you will reap your rewards
