LIBRA season, ruled by planet Venus, governs the realms of the heart & Love. This essence of love can be expressed and received via artwork, music, sound vibrations, relationships of all kinds, sensuality, dancing, fulfilling work, & natural beauty. It’s a sense of harmony & peace when everything feels like it’s seamlessly flowing. If you aren’t experiencing these higher sensations, this is the opportunity to take inventory of what feels heavy and not nourishing for growth and release it to allow you to feel lighter and tap into this fresh higher vibration of love to rock this next cycle. Set an intention to direct the energies and come back to it time and time again, for experiential purposes, why not?!
This harmonious flow is a direct relationship to how much we are allowing ourselves to love and accept our Self. Our Self, on the thread of all levels, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, soul level. Through the gateways of self acceptance, unconditional love, nourishment, gratitude for what/who we have in our lives, we raise our vibration. This sign also correlates with your work in the world and financial flow. Health is truly your wealth. It’s a choice. To recognize the quality of our thoughts; (+) adding to our life or (-) depleting your life. Decisions & taking actions to elevate your health and wellness, environment, and be open for it to flow right back to you. How does your work add value? Are you in alignment? What do you need to do to get feel aligned with work flow? Libra is known as ‘the mirror’, being a great teacher, seeing yourself in the other and having it reflected back to you. In your closest relationships, the teller at the bank, a fellow human in passing, a smile, a Thank you, a compliment. A moment with a tree, a rock, an animal, the elements, the stars, the moonlight, the mother herself Earth. What you put out you will receive back. This time space is an opportunity to see where we are lacking self love and where there is room for improvement, and to be grateful for all the love and healthiness we have cultivated.
Venus being retrograde in Scorpio (til 11/16) dives into loves depths. Concerning matters of the heart, to look deeply within, and then within some more this cycle. Looking beyond ~ what we initially see. Exercising non attachment, not getting held up or distracted by what we come across. Revealing a core intent of what it is we see for ourselves in relationships with another and for the greater collective.
This Scorpionic/Venusian energy trine Mars and square Pluto explains the upheaval and rising of the feminine we may be observing collectively. Secrets and sensitive deep traumas are being triggered and released. We are witnessing the collective imbalance of yin and yang energies. Individually we hold both yin and yang to be whole, that’s just our duality of life. This is a time where we need to truly assess where we can soften & understand, release to the flow (yin) and understand when to use our energy and take action and how we can channel it in a receptive way (yang). Many things will be revealed, as we have been witnessing in the news if keeping up. This is an opportunity to observe these deep things being released. To heal, accept, and know for the future when and how to address things as they come and to take responsibility for our whole self.
Holding space for this important and metamorphic phase of the heart that will take place for some time is vital. To truly embody the feminine. Listening, having compassion, and hold space for the best possible growth for the collective and for individuals. If we stick up for the feminine in an agro way we need to ask how will that be received? The Karma of reactions will go round and round. Only time will tell and I personally hold space for balance, healing, and rising together in our wholeness. We all come from different backgrounds, lineages, places, points in souls growth. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. You don’t need to agree with it. If anything it sharpens your own core beliefs that’s true to you that you can stand up for. How can we cultivate peace?
Have courage to let go of the relationships that do not enrich your soul. This is a favor to yourself, the other person, and the collective. This is not implying to x-communicate them in a harsh way, still be open to hold space for their individual growth as your own and move forward to create space for more like minded connections. When relating, speaking heartfelt truth is vital and we shouldn’t be afraid of how the other person receives the info. What matters is if it’s coming from a place of respect of self, the other, and truly for the best. Embody courage, to expose yourself to an environment you’re attracted to and allow your Self to expand and soften into the space. Embody this intent, every moment, everyday! Like a plant, you need to trim the dead ends to allow the energy to flow and support growth. It needs either a bigger pot to expand or be put into the ground to be free and wild. It needs a temperate environment for it to thrive, with light and water. Optimization of environment and nourishment be key!
CHERISH the relationships you do have. Celebrate one another and recognize your growth, processes, and goals. Remain in integrity to yourself, to remain in alignment with commitments and to show up fully. Honor when you need to rest and go within, honor when you need to go out in the world and dance!
Practice of mindful awareness.
It’s easy for me to say all of these things in this composed blog, but it’s another thing to actively implement it on the daily. It’s a full time job! We can talk all we want about the things we should do but it’s those magic AHA moments, I call ‘the snap’ where the tool comes in and presence is occupied. When we are not on auto pilot, aka - WOKE? Listening to the words we chose, our thought patterns, stories we repeat, our tone when speaking. Greeting people, when you ask casually in passing oh hey how are you? Or vise versa, what’s the answer? Do you even want to know, or do you just shrug off the dull question with a “good how are you?”. I personally catch myself doing this from time to time from habit of I’m not even sure. Keyword: “catch.” That ‘snap’ reaction is all that needs to happen and you can change the response or question to something more exciting or lively. That thoughtful response in turn is transferred to the other person and you never know how something affects or inspires someone.
Developing a daily habit or discipline like yoga, meditation, or breath work helps to remain in alignment with your intent for the cycle. It aids in bringing space into the body and mind. First thing in the AM before anything personally helps me set the tone of the day. Try a local yoga class, or online class if that makes you feel more comfortable. If you’ve never been because your ‘not flexible’ enough - (what my father says! Still holding space for him to begin his journey one day. Love ya fathah!) Yoga is where you practice flexibility and where we find those ridged edges and soften into them creating more space; mind and body. Enhancing flexibility, gaining strength, detoxing, calming the brain, dissolving anxiety, discovering connections, and returning to Self. Love. If you showed up that’s 85% of the work right there. Tune into sounds and frequencies that resonate with a certain chakra you are working on. Perhaps the seven keys in a scale relate to the vibrations of the 7 chakras. Use Sound healing to calibrate the spaces in the body on a physical level truly work. Via my own experience I correlate this too the waves of the ocean making the sand waves on the ocean floor, sounds waves do this to your cells in your body! Aaahhhoooooouuummm.
As we learned in the previous cycle of Virgo, letting perfection go and striving for your best, accepting what is and paying attention to the detail. Remembering to Enjoy your process along the journey, always arriving ‘now here’ to be open to opportunity and growth. From here we integrate those lessons and see them within the other. Acknowledging the beauty and peace when we let go and arrive in Love. We are learning from each other constantly by what we share, practice, and vibrate.
By October 24th when the moon reaches a full, we will have just shifted into Scorpio territory! The moon will be fully illuminated at 01 degree Taurus. As we dive even deeper into the depths this moon we helps us see practically and objectively what still needs to be purged in order to transform into the Phoenix and rise from zi ashes! This is a strong period of transformation. Transformation isn’t easy. It’s hard work, it’s vulnerable, it’s facing things, facing fears and bringing light to cast away the shadows of doubt and fear. With all this Venusian energy during the new moon it’s like we are being blessed and geared up with the practice of self love, reflection, and observing connection with others. We can then take this energy with us into the Scorpion waters of transformation and shine that love and light we have been cultivating.
Life is a constant integration of the lessons we receive and grow through. Tuning into moon cycles and seasons help us objectively understand what’s the cosmic weather is and navigate and be prepared. Nonetheless, If you aren’t interested or skeptic of astrology, which I happen to be, hence why I study it and it proves it’s relevancy astonishingly time and time again, then my suggestion to you is keep doing what you're doing! Listen to your intuition, that little voice inside. You are in the flow. Ask the questions and hear the answers.
I am personally reflecting why I am drawn to the study of astrology and understanding these celestial bodies of energy and how the meld together and affect us here on Earth. You may be wondering this too if you find yourself reading this or other insights. Perhaps we are drawn to these insights because we are purely interested in the unknown and what to expect when the waves come, how to ride them, which board to use. Maybe it’s a sense of distrusting our ability to be able to handle the moment without knowing what’s ‘happening’. I go in and out of my studies so I can truly tap into the flow without having data color my mind in a sense. Every time I do take a break and go back to reflect it’s wild to see how accurate these archetypes are.
EXPOSED: My personal fears and doubts are if I should share my personal insight or not. In my self discovering journey I have found this Study so helpful which brought me to this point of discovery and sharing because perhaps it can be helpful for maybe one other person it reaches. Also I do not enjoy the responsibility of predicting energies. I do like to provide a rough general yet deep outline of the energies at play. They morph into reality in mysterious and interesting ways. To predict would be to limit or confine. I strive to channel from a clear space to shine light and aid in personal transformation, fulfill your highest potential from the soul level. I’m finding more and more to listen and trust the inner voice. When I feel resistance, I look at it. Ask if it this is true. I understand we all have our own insecurities and faults. I’ve learned through the asteroid Chiron the wounded healer whose energy we all embody, where our wound is we are always healing and understanding. In turn that's where we do the deep dive and constantly work at to help nurture this hunger for understanding. We gain knowledge on the subject and naturally want to help others with the same inquires. We are all on this life journey following our own paths. All in all it’s to the same place, our Self. Uncovering the layers and unveiling one Love. Thank you for being there for me. I am here for you.
One last personal share: I’ve recently been on a road trip with my boyfriend this past week touring many incredible national parks. My what a journey it has been! We had a loose plan of where we wanted to go and ultimately end up. In the middle it was free game, not knowing where we were going to sleep until we just felt it. Trusting our timing of the flow. Practicing gratitude all along the well made us appreciate SO much for all the goodness we have in our lives. By being open to the flow in such a way, we experience such awesome events! We even got to the grand view of the Grand Canyon whilst it was raining, as we walked up to the view a magnificent rainbow appeared right across the canyon. Had we been somewhere else at a different time we wouldn’t have that experience. It was Stunning, everyone who was there too was marveling at it, together. Blessings are everywhere along the way, just have to be open. There is such a big world out there. Peaks and Valleys, flowing rivers and calm lakes. Forests and deserts. Wild life surviving. Elk who walk right up to you all friendly like, change their demeanor as if to charge you, and you blasting out LOVE energy like it’s your job and then she calls a truce and lets you move on. It’s incredible the different terrain out there how they can reflect so much within our own selves. The ancient rock that has withstood so much weather which has shaped it to be as it now stands. The culture and wisdom that still lives within the rocks flowers dirt and trees. There are endless portals, reflections, and lessons to be learned. Truly grateful for this life and the journey our souls can incarnate here on Mother Earth.
For this next cycle, wishing you all the Love, positive vibrations, healing, and moments full of gratitude. As we begin to fall into the winter season and Holidays, let’s set the tone of self love to be that for the world. I know - that’s a biiiig stretch and idealistic thing to say. But it’s true, all you can do is begin with you. As we know, the holidays hold a tenandancy to spin us out of control. If we continue to practice we can still honor ourselves and show up fully. Each moment is a chance to uplift yourself and someone else, and so on…………………
Til the full moon update.
PS - listen to ‘this is the moment’ from Jekyll and Hyde … cuz it’s DOPE! Enjoy your moment :)
