It is that wonderful time of the month where we have been blessed with the Full Moon.
Oh, how the Moon is bright and lovely this evening. This month, the moon is in Gemini while the Sun is in Sagittarius. You may feel anxious, on edge, and/or frustrated. There is this feeling that may embody you that you can not explain and may not fully understand. You just feel that change.
Stop what you’re doing. Tune into your inner being. Reflect on where you used to be. Realize how much you’ve grown since that time. Yes, you’re not where you want to be, but that’s okay. You’ve been traveling an interesting journey. Your path to your greatness is for you to walk. For you to enjoy. Yes, you’ll stumble. Yes, you may have to crawl rather than walk. But keep going. You’ll get there. Look back from time to time to remind yourself that even on the days when it seemed like you couldn’t take one more step, you did. The days when it felt like progress wasn’t made, it was.
As you prepare your mind and spirit for the new week, keep this in mind. What matters is how you feel about yourself, how you treat others, how you give back and how you show the Universe your appreciation but putting out positive energy.
It reminds me of going to the Eastern Market every weekend to purchase spices as well as fruits and veggies when the ones we planted in my Great-Grandmother’s garden was not quite ready. The beautiful times where the produce was the main focus and great pride was taken in what was being offered to the visitors.
Now, whenever I can, I go to the local farmer’s market to purchase local raw honey, fresh vegetables and fruits. Since it is later in the season, the pickings were slim (goodbye summer selection) but I was happy with what I found.
Fall does not mean that there aren’t great selections out there, they are just slightly adjusted. One won’t find an abundance of sweet fruits but will find a healthy selection of greatness. To help you on your next trip to the farmer’s market (or regular market), here are some vegetables and fruits that are in season.
People are dropping like proverbial files. Those that you were close to before, you all somehow grew apart.
Things are changing. Your present is changing. You are changing. You are growing. You are continuing on your journey.
With every point in our life, we will be challenged in order to grow. There will be many points in our life when we feel a shift. The energy around and within us is preparing for grow. We take a new form. A new shape. You no longer fit into the mold of your former self.
To my earthly warriors, I commend you.
I applaud you for facing your battles with war paint and shields head on.
Never does your situation outwardly reflect your stance.
You may feel ready to throw in the towel. You may feel that no one can possibly understand the battles that you face.
But realize, Warrior, that you’ve faced many and have prevailed. Yes, they may have been stones thrown in your path, but remember, those are also used for stepping.
And just as the flower looks to the sun for nourishment and strength, others may be looking to you.
Stay strong, Warrior! You are powerful beyond measure.
