“Just how often do we cripple ourselves by not letting love with all its risks teach us how to fly? How many times do our hearts stall because we won’t let the wingspan of our passion open us fully into our gifts? How frequently do we search for a song of guidance that can only come from inside us? …We like the birds are meant to fly and sing—that’s all—and all our plans and schemes are twigs of nest that, once outgrown, we leave.” ~Mark Nepo

“Hold on tight to your hearts, fierce ones, as the Full Moon of May 21, 2016 carries a jolt of raw creative power that can push you out of your comfort zone and empower you to speak your truth and walk your talk. Brace yourself for challenge, as this full moon unites in exact conjunction with courageous Mars, compelling a power that can catapult you in the direction of your ambitions and desires. Mars is on fire at this time, churning up the desire principle and lending an edgy, pushy feel to the next month. The best course of action would be to let go of the need for control. Hold to your vision and speak your truth, but let the universe determine how things will unfold. On this Full Moon, tap into the warrior spirit of love to forge new alliances, create new streams of income, and dissolve any fears that may have been holding you back. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. This invigorating Full Moon can embolden your voice and push you to step up into new levels of self-empowerment. Use this opportunity to harness the magnified energy of Mars by claiming ownership of your truth while honoring the needs of others.” ~Kari Field, AnandaShree Astrology

“In this holographic world, everyone and everything is a mirror, and you are always seeing yourself and talking to yourself. If you choose, you can now look at what emotionally affects you as an alarm, a clue to uncover your shadow, a catalyst for growth that gives you an opportunity to reclaim a hidden aspect of yourself. What aspects are reflecting back to you? To get past your ego and its defenses you need to get quiet, be brave, and listen to your inner voices…. When you embrace the messages of each aspect of your shadow, you begin to take back the power you’ve given to others and form a bond of trust with your authentic self. The voices of your unembraced qualities, when allowed into your consciousness, will bring you back into balance and harmony with your natural rhythms.” ~Debbie Ford

Happy New Moon!

“The day of the New Moon is one of the most significant points in the month. It helps us to start a new cycle and allows us the rare privilege of being able to venture within to really see the truth of where we are going and where we are at.

The May New Moon falls in the earth sign of Taurus on May 6th, and will bring with it a gentle hand that will allow us to finally receive some clarity.

With 5 planets currently in retrograde and more to follow in June, we have all been on a journey of digging up the past so we can make room for the new. Retrograde energy is all about clearing the past so you can move forward without any baggage weighing you down. The more you can embrace this energy and the more you can allow it into your life, the more you will be able to face your past with strength and faith.

On its own, this New Moon is actually very positive and gentle so if you can use the energy it provides to help you through all this retrograding energy, you may find that things start to automatically fall into place.

If things are stirred for you surrounding the New Moon, take it as an opportunity to ground yourself in where you are at and to feel your feet firmly rooted in the ground. Aligning with the energy of this New Moon requires us to go with the flow of the energy that we feel and to embrace all that crosses our path.

Be gentle with  yourself this week and know that the past cannot be changed, but it can be healed and released through acceptance, forgiveness and love.

When you open your heart to the energies of this New Moon and allow, you will feel its energy washing away all that no longer serves you and all that is holding you back from you.”
