Full Moon in Scorpio:
Seeing pain as a catalyst for evolution is the first step
to transforming and healing your soul.

What are pain's benefits? What are pain's soulful gifts? Can we really find happiness through our pain? Yes, we can. But the gifts of pain are subtle. The gifts of pain are personal. They may not be so easily found at first due to their mysterious nature. But they are available to us once we are able to accept our pain. 

One important factor in dealing with pain is figuring out whether they are physical or emotional in nature. Sometimes, our physical pain can come from our emotional pain, and other times, our emotional pain can come from our physical pain. Both pain may be different in nature, but they come from the same root, that something is out of balance.


 The gifts of pain are personal. 

When we are worrying too much, fearing too much, envying too much, hating too much or loving too much, we lose our emotional and physical equilibrium. Although there is nothing inherently wrong about showering someone with love, there is a thin line between being attentive and smothering or overwhelming.

By looking at our pain as a catalyst for evolution, we can begin the journey to transformation and healing. By looking at our pain as a catalyst for growth, we can begin to realize our full potential and increase our self-awareness. 

Each pain brings with it the opportunity to reconnect with our soul on a deeper level. Each pain brings with it the promise of mental and emotional growth. Do not resist pain, because it only leads to more suffering. Instead, really listen to our emotions, accept fully what we are struggling with and begin recognizing new paths to growth and evolution.


 By looking at our pain as a catalyst for growth, 
 we can begin to realize our full potential 
 and increase our self-awareness. 

Happy Full Moon! The Moon in Scorpio is opposite the Sun in Taurus, marking a deeply emotional and transformational Full Moon in the sign of the Scorpion. Ruling the 8th House in astrology, the Scorpio themes are centered around other people's money, taxes, debts, as well as sex, love affairs, taboos, and matters regarding death, rebirth and transformation. A Full Moon in the sign of Scorpio can shine a light on those subjects, even though they are not always so easy to figure out or even talk about. 

With the Moon's trine to Neptune and Chiron, faith is the answer. Faith in healing. Faith in growing. Faith in moving forward fearlessly. Sometimes it may be easier said than done, but faith is exactly what we need when we are in the midst of darkness. Having faith is not about believing in the unreal, but more about believing in our inner wisdom and trusting that new roads are opening up before us when we are willing to break through old beliefs and barriers.

The Moon is also forming a sextile to Pluto Rx, and it's time to overcome our fears. The truth may hurt, but lies hurt more. As we nurture more self-love and self-confidence, we let go of the temptation of powerlessness. Powerlessness blocks us from our true purpose. Powerlessness stops us from taking charge and moving forward.


 The truth may hurt, but lies hurt more. 

In the end, the Full Moon in Scorpio is about unlocking and realizing our inner power. It's about mastering the power within - not to hurt others, but to take charge of our own lives and stop getting in our own way. 

Taking control over our lives shouldn't be about being controlling, but about recognizing that the power to live our lives authentically is in our hands. By putting ourselves in the driver's seat of our lives, not only will we stop ourselves from feeling stuck, but we will also take back authority over our physical, mental and emotional bodies.

New Moon in Taurus | New Physical Reality

 April 26th, 2017 

New Moon in Taurus:
A different physical reality begins with a different spiritual reality.
If you want a different result, begin with a different choice.

Changing ourselves begins with changing our choices. Our choices define who we are. Our choices define our present. There are times when we are unaware of the choices we are making, either because we are turning a blind eye or because we are not aware of the possible consequences. 

How can we make the best choice for ourselves when we don't even know which one is the right choice? Often times, the answers lie deep within us. We just need to look deeper into ourselves to see why we are feeling the way we do and what choices we need to make next.

Our choices define our present.

Perhaps we have been called to make some lifestyle changes. From changing the way we eat, the way we exercise, the way we clean ourselves, to changing the type of people we allow into our lives. And this change in our physical reality can only be possible when we make a change within our spiritual reality. 

Our spiritual connection with the soul says a lot about our connection with ourselves. When we connect more closely with our soul-selves, we can form a deeper and more loving connection with our physical bodies. When we cultivate a more spiritual bond with our soul, we will be able to consciously see choices we need to make that can lead to our highest potential.

One of the first steps we can take to spiritually connect with our soul is to release all the lies we have been telling ourselves. When we lie to ourselves, we lose our connection to our soul-selves and therefore tend to make choices that we often regret later. When we lie to ourselves, we only build a barrier to our personal truths. By unmasking the lies we have been telling ourselves, we can open the door to our personal power and freedom.

When we connect more closely with our soul-self,
we can form a deeper and more loving
connection with our physical body.

Happy New Moon! The Moon is conjoining the Sun in Taurus, marking a super down to earth and stable New Moon in the sign of the Bull. What we begin at this time has the potential to stick around for a long time. The stable energy from the Taurean New Moon brings to us a new sense of patience that may not be easily felt before. We understand that progress takes time, and the key to keep going in the direction of our dreams lies in our undying spirit. 

Taking better care of our physical bodies also brings a new level of balance to our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. As we begin our change from within, we begin to change the way we see ourselves and the way we make our decisions.

The Moon is forming a sextile to Neptune, Chiron and Venus, and instead of worrying, we recognize the healing power of prayer. Instead of trying to do everything ourselves, we give others the chance to help us. Instead of criticizing ourselves, we remember the magic of self-respect. As long as we are following our inner guidance and remaining truthful to our values, we can ditch self-doubt, face change and move forward confidently.

As we begin our change from within, we begin to change the way
we see ourselves and the way we make our decisions.

With the Moon's trine to Pluto Rx, to experience peacefulness, do not force progress. Allow things to flow naturally, and make room for a soulful renewal. Withdrawing from action is not always about wasting time, but about allowing our minds and bodies to rest to gain new perspectives. 

The New Moon in Taurus is about balancing between our physical and spiritual worlds. It's about having physical awareness while maintaining our spiritual connection with the world. It's about focusing on one step at a time with respect to our soul's purpose, knowing that the present is a sacred place to be where we can plant seeds for new beginnings and new growth.

Full Moon in Libra | Truth Loving

 April 11th, 2017 

Full Moon in Libra:
Living your truth is not only about speaking your truth, but also about aligning
your actions with your heart's intention to form authentic relationships.

There is a thin line between telling a lie and keeping the truth hidden. Telling a lie is about the deliberate manufacturing of an untruth, whereas keeping the truth hidden is about knowing a truth that we do not wish to reveal.

To put it simply, telling a lie, more often than not, involves the covering up of something we deem to be 'bad' to avoid a fight or an argument. And keeping the truth hidden, on the other hand, usually involves withholding information to spare another person's feelings. 

Which one is better between the two? Is one really is better than the other? In the end, it all depends on the true intention behind the act of lying or keeping the truth hidden. Are we willing to pay the price of peace and freedom? Are we losing ourselves from trying to make others happy and at peace all the time? How can we form authentic relationships when we are being inauthentic?

There is a thin line between telling a lie
and keeping the truth hidden.

Being authentic is not about saying what's on our minds without filtering them. Being authentic is not about shouting all our secrets from the rooftops. Being authentic is not about going all-out or living out loud, although sometimes it can be. It all depends on the situation and what we are trying to achieve.

Being authentic is about being deeply in touch with our strengths and weaknesses, as well as accepting ourselves in all our messy glory. Being authentic is about expressing what we believe to be true about ourselves in small but effective ways, rather than in big but superficial ways. 

By getting in touch with our heart's true intention, which is to love and connect authentically, we can begin to live our lives more truthfully. By listening more closely to our soul's true voice, we can begin to authentically express ourselves and therefore able to form more authentic relationships in the process.

Being authentic is about being deeply in touch with our
strengths and weaknesses, as well as accepting
ourselves in all our messy glory.

Happy Full Moon! The Moon is conjoining Jupiter Rx in Libra and forming an opposition to the Sun and Uranus in Aries, marking an electric and fiery Full Moon in the sign of the Scales. With the Sun in Aries, a sign which is all about the self, and the Moon in Libra, a sign which is all about the others, balancing compassion for self and others is the key to peace of mind. 

Have we been kind to others but not to ourselves? Is being too kind a bad thing when there seems to be so much darkness in the world? True wisdom comes from understanding that we can still stay true to ourselves and values while being kind to others. That being kind is not about trying to be well-liked by others, but about bringing more light and grace into our world. That we won't be swayed by influences that aren't in alignment with our truth, because we understand that kindness is not only a gift that we give to others but also to ourselves.

Is being too kind a bad thing when there seems
to be so much darkness in the world?

The Moon is forming a square to Pluto, and it's important to remember that our greatest challenges in life can lead to our greatest evolution and transformation. Why do we feel stuck in unhealthy situations, and seem to be unable to see a way out? Why is it often difficult to break through old, fearful patterns and create new, fearless ones? 

Perhaps the answer lies in our inability to see our own light. When we are unable to see our inner light, we cast a shadow over our own lives and relationships. Know that the light always brings forth new birth, a constant renewal of life. It is time to be discerning, but to also be open to let our light emerge and illuminate new paths before us.

Our greatest challenges in life can lead to our
greatest evolution and transformation.

With the Moon's sextile to Saturn, finding balance between giving and receiving can be possible. Although it's impossible to perfectly balance giving and receiving each day, we can still find a healthy balance. How much time do we really give to ourselves? Understand that when we are constantly being pulled by forces outside of ourselves — by other people, by the media, and the demands of daily life, we lose pieces of our spirit. 

By carving out a little solitude, we can replenish our soul and begin to hear our inner wisdom. The Full Moon in Libra is bringing another chance for us to reclaim our spirit. To take some time to ourselves each day to boost our mental and emotional well-being. To know that by cultivating a healthy and authentic relationship with ourselves, we can form healthier and more authentic relationships with others.
