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.
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.
The full moon is in Taurus. In the days of indigenous cultures and for farmers now, full moons are for harvesting. We can also harvest the energy and seeds that we planted in the Universe so far this year.
The Universe is overflowing with positive energy for us to use and abundantly put forth. The full moon is a way that we can bring it all together, regroup, and reap the positivity.
If anyone told you that it does, they are not your friend since they lied to you — and they are misguided.
Everything that we do will require work. It will require effort. It will require patience. It will require stamina. It will require faith.
Often, we get caught up in what we want to do and achieve and we forget that we have to work our way up to it. Some of the things that we think are off our path are actually preparing us for what we are to achieve. Think of it like the quizzes before the final exam. The quizzes are short bursts of knowledge testing that prepares our mind to succeed on the final exam.
Our goals. Our dreams. Our progress. It is all on us.
We, as individuals, must realize that we are in charge of our journey. It is not the responsibility of another to get us to where we want to be. We must make up our minds to get our mind and spirit in line with our goals. We are responsible for putting one step in front of the other. We are responsible for not giving up. We are responsible for continuing when we feel as though we can’t anymore. We are responsible for re-evaluating the “plan” when a part of it did not work.
Such a magical word. Such a glorious virtue to have. Such a difficult thing to embody and put (keep) in to practice.
Patience with others. Patience with ourselves. Patience with what were are doing. Patience with our progress. Patience with our current state in our journey. Patience with our growth. Patience with our healing. Patience at the moment. Patience with the future.
