November Dark Moon : Working internally and collapsing the ego as we build externally despite of the odds

This Dark Moon ushers in a time of great internal development that pushes us outwards and forward with our life. What ends is a phase of emotionally reaching out and extending ourselves so as to reconnect with the outer world. After reaching out externally this past cycle, now we begin to try and stop external collapses that we foresee as being brought upon by sudden and fast change. This trial makes us face the collapse of our inner self as we deal with internal conflicts of progression and change, brought on by the panic of trying to stop change. The lesson is regarding building physical security and wealth. We can prepare for this by toning down on our passionate expression of our creative love and allowing the passion to burn inside of us and grow the magnetic power of our inner self. We allow the the process by being outgoing, meeting new people and reaching out with what we have to offer. This is more formal and different from reaching out with passion and love, as we work to build our internal strength and fire of creativity.

What grounds us is staying hopeful when we aren’t sure about what the mixed signals that the external world is sending to us. What crowns us is engaging in the exchange of the tangible; which in formal terms are considered goods & services, but in personal terms, it can be as simple as spending time with someone to help them out with a task or giving them space to finalize and release what was within them (like the hidden words and thoughts that pervade our minds and weigh us down with worry), which in turn will bring back a return from the Universe, as mysterious and random as what we gave. Push the ego to the side and know that when we are there for someone, some cause, some element of nature, the Universe bears witness and returns the help.

A look into the background of shows that currently, our inner guidance has led us to reach outward and be more engaged in our environment. The immediate challenges involve that which we keep to ourselves, and how much we can really manage to secretly achieve without communicating our intention to others. An awareness of what is best to keep and what is best to express will test our discernment of self. The best course of action involves staying optimistic despite of the odds, winning internally against the pressure of game of worry. In the distant past we pressed onwards despite overbearing pressure and worries regarding our situation, which then brought us to a time of self-doubt which made us turn inward to nurture ourselves and recover our self-confidence. So now we look to the future and see rapid changes happening as our internal growth expands the possibilities in our external world. This brings an urge to stop the rapid change in order to prevent a collapse, which brings inner conflict and egoic collapses. We are currently in open communication with a close friend or partner as we work in an environment that promotes development of new skills and studies. We fear losing control as we try not to be overbearing. The final outcome shows that we are working on developing tangible internal goals for ourselves as the outer world may not show what we want for now. However, in accordance with previous cards, stay hopeful and keep moving forward with internal optimism and external realism.

One thing to carry with us is knowing that even if we are unable to see the truth of things surrounding us in the external world, we can turn inward and work with the assuredness of our inner truth of being as we move forward. With inner hope and optimism that we know our goal and have it in sight.

Dark Moon Forecast for October 30, 2016 : Pushing through Conflict and Coming to Terms with our Personal Responsibilities

This new cycle will challenge us in both our external and internal world. Reminding us that the external realm is merely a reflection of what lies within us: our inner truth of character, what empowers us and drives us forward, and what shadows we have hidden which still go bump in heavy nights of the soul. Combining that all, we are encouraged to move forward with Strength and Courage.

This Dark Moon brings an end to a phase of short falls and incomplete work. What begins is an internal inspiration that wishes to make changes in the external world that we are dissatisfied with. What helps us prepare for this is to start pushing back against that which is impeding us: oppressive circumstances, negative people who attempt to crush our dreams. What helps us allow this new phase to enter and pass is to re-asses everything from a different perspective. What is the truth within us and how is it reflected in the outer world? As we push through conflict, instead of thinking about how actions and situation are placed on us (ie Victim Mentality), think of how it is a reflection of the shadow within us, as in how may we be creating and affecting this conflict (Mentality of an Empowered Co-Creator with the Universe). Going from wondering why people are attacking us, to thinking about how are our actions are causing the “conflict” that we face. This brings us to what Crowns us, which is Judgement: coming to terms with everything and acknowledging our personal responsibility in what is transpiring. This awareness brings better judgement in our choices. What grounds us is taking care of any erratic energy that comes from anxiety or lack of preparedness when facing the myriad issues and conflicts, calming down the inner energy so that it flows in sync and supports our mind, body & spirit. Then being more hands on with what is happening around us so the external world reflects our internal structure. Let the energy of preparation transmute into the outer world: How can I be better prepared? What should I work on? What steps should I take? What aspects of my life do I need to understand better? How can I Empower myself? What is my intuition telling me about preparations?

Looking more into the energies around us, in the distant past there was a time when we were in strict control over our own domain and felt like an Emperor of our own realm. Then as time passed, that cycle ended and now another has come to pass. Right now the Universe wants us to know that, as we start this new cycle, wee are Free and the only things manipulating the situation are ourselves and our egos. As this new cycle stretches us both internally and externally, it is best for us to be prepared. Have our energy organized so that we can support ourselves and have the drive to keep going. The incoming challenges is a streak of bad luck, which will frustrate us, but as we move forward with Strength the conflict and seemingly bad luck makes us focus on what is most important so that we can let go of any unnecessary burdens and all that which no longer serves us or assist us in reaching our goal. We worry about losing our optimistic drive to move forward, so we can add the self-care practice of tending to our inner dream and reminding ourselves that it will happen. The outcome card shows what we are building this cycle, and that is Inner Wealth: Inner Strength, Courage, Confidence, Character, Integrity, Intuition, Focus & Intention, and more!

Full Hunter Moon October 2016 Acknowledging the Outer World While Building Within

Full Hunter Moon October 2016

This month we manifested a manageable regimen from which we will not deviate. The inner self is now acting less foolishly, having learned from situations that are now past us. We may be hesitant to listen to ourselves; the key to balancing that out is to relax, take a deep break and lean into the secure routine we created before considering all else, and taking the time to feel into our question/thought, allowing our intuition to lead.

What brought out this development is the pain from heartbreaks and disappointments in the outer world which caused our inner self to protect itself by finding emotional relief and satiation from the little joys in our lives; thus creating a virtual bubble of gratitude and thankfulness, like emotional oxygen in a toxic and contaminated environment.

The lesson we have learned is to acknowledge injustices and face them in the outer world as our inner world mulls over what mental artillery we will need. It may be stressful carrying these worrisome thought; however, it goes in hand with a heightened awareness of what lies in our surroundings and how to internally be prepared to handle them.

What fades is the lack of proper boundaries which is entwined with improper discernment. Worries cease to rule over us as we move forward from a secure and emotionally stable foundation. We stop trying to over-think things and simply let go of everything that no longer serves us and work with our inner self to build within. We may have trouble finding our inner guidance if we keep rushing out and about completing our many plans and projects, thus losing control and letting these external plans control us.

Thus we are to balance ourselves in order to allow the processing and passing of these manifestations. This balance is created from our routine and emotional stability so that we are in flow with our intuitive self and the divine source of inspiration. As these keep us moving forward, proper discernment of what is best form us helps us stay balanced, this is backed with experience from what life has taught us, acknowledgement of what we are leaving behind and mental preparedness for the injustices we are ready to face. We leave the hurt and pain behind us as we embrace the strong connection to our emotional core that it has taught us. From here are are ready to face the issues facing our own inner development. Letting us charge forward with courageous gusto into the deep deep ocean of the self, cultivating our inner garden.

What grounds us is staying focused on cultivating this inner garden of the self, which crops to sow, how to sow them, how to nurture, feed, and carefully tend to their growth. Meanwhile pulling out weeds that get in way, pruning away the sickened stalks that should be returned to the universe and composting the dead ideas that may be recycled into good fertilizer for new ventures.

What crowns us is building up, our outer skills sprout from the cultivation of the inner self. As our self expression and integrity (strong backbone 🙂 ) transmutes into external structure.

Wish you all a good month of balance and inner growth! Keep at it! We Will Succeed!

We will Transmute our Inner Self-Development into Outer Growth!

The Black Moon reveals a need to focus and ignore external distractions as we move forward into emotional fulfillment

Today is the day of the Black Moon for those in the Western Hemisphere of the Earth. The Black Moon is the Second Dark Moon of the month and you can read about it at http://www.space.com/34162-black-moon-guide.html. It is a time when we can really sink inside of ourselves and find the source to our troubles. It can heal and guide us on our journey.

black-moon-front-01

During this Black Moon, what passes is the Incomplete transition due to thoughts that keeps us entangled in action without pause, what assists us in letting go is engaging the inner self instead of running away from the situation. We undergo internal movement to bring our consciousness to a calmer state so that we can intrinsicly reflect on everything and prepare for the transition. We begin a phase of emotional fulfillment and we can embrace this new cycle by being open and not keeping secrets. We allow the self to carry what is necessary within us so that we can express truthful communication outward. (For example carrying inner strength and knowledge that allows us to process situation and speak of our needs).

What is revealed within us is a false need for control while attempting to diligently work on our studies while being distracted by disjointed inspiration that a misunderstanding of emotions which seem chaotic. To remedy this we let go of the external need for control everything, relax, allow the thoughts and feelings to pass gently through our psyche as we focus on what is important now.

What is at the base of this are the illusions of the mind: fragments of our subconscious psyche that are crushing the logical mind and breaking down the barriers that we have created within our consciousness to block out what we do not wish to see. What is best for us in this moment is to focus on what is important within us and block out all other external distractions. Dive deep within ourselves and embrace our true being, our desires and dreams, however much they seem to be contradicted by logical reality.

A look into the underside of the deck reveals that we do not feel at harmony with our environment so we are working on and with self-love at the moment, as we prepare to drive ourselves forward with our venture. Best to keep the end goal in sight as the world opens up to embrace us. In the past we felt disconnected from financial security, and subsequently vulnerable and unprepared. So now we are delaying things and checking with our inner guidance to make sure that we are headed in the right direction. We are fearful of losing touch with ourselves and our emotions while at the same time hoping to be less sensitive to whatever pitfalls may come. The outcome shows that we may be too distracted to build externally, so we will develop Internally.

With all of this, remember to stay optimistic! We will succeed!

MidAutumn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! Relinquishing Judgement in a Moment of Weakness

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! Today is not only the Mid-Autumn full moon, but it is also a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse! This is our second eclipse and the energy that built up has been strong. Two eclipses around the time of the Harvest Moon yields a crop from the internal world that is usually hidden deep within us.

For this Full Harvest Moon, we manifested an instinctual urge to gather and keep (collect) what we can and find internal happiness while staying busy and hopeful when faced with injustice/unfairness in our environment (I did a reading a couple months ago asking what the Happy Squirrel means, I should write about it). We Learned not to worry about the many things weighing down on our minds and affecting our body & spirit. What now fades is a ragged inconsistency of efforts and looking towards the future can assist in allowing this to pass.
We are grounded by a release of our secret burdens, reaching out to people so we may open channels of communication. Let go of the energy of our unspoken/unnoticed burdens and send them into the collective [as a message] so that we can receive the feedback, resources, and assistance we need to figure out how to better resolve our issues.
What crowns us is really feeling into what upsets us about our condition and allowing this energy to speak to us about what is lacking in our lives as we channel our need into the world, allowing it to bring us that which we need.

Looking into the background reveals that we are full of great ideas and creating many wonderful things, however we are unable to manage them properly and some are falling out of our hands. Thus we will have less interest in pushing ourselves as hard from now on, even if internally we really want to keep going.
What is best for us in this moment of weakness is to not be so judgemental of ourselves an dothers. Yes we are upset and feel pain, but we have already moved from our original state of dissatisfaction to a much more pleasant place, and in the future we will be charging forward!

So we take this moment of weakness as a necessary mental respite from the hustle, so that we can communicate with ours, emptying our ills into the universe. We do hope to be less reckless with our actions and the outcome shows that we will indeed complete a wonderful project with the skill, resources and assistance we need.
