Lessons for a blue moon

What is your heart communicating

that your head is negating?

This friday, July 31st will be the last blue moon (2nd full moon in a month) till 2018! One of our tribe members is celebrating a birthday that day (happy birthday, Belen). The set up for this moon is quite special. I’ve been feeling a pull myself for awhile but this week it has amplified dramatically.

Astrologer Crystal B writes on Elephant Journal, “this full blue moon is going to help us see what we need in order to be more satisfied in our lives, given all the elements in play. Maybe we’re missing something important and we finally have a chance to grab hold of it. However, given the Aquarian edge and feel, we might need to look outside the box and go into some new territory to discover what it really is. Aquarius loves to be different after all.”

In other words, what has your heart been longing for that your head keeps dismissing in order for you to perceived you are safe, loved, and/or acceptable?

This is the time we are being called to release the bonds of society telling us what is wrong and right and simply define our ethics, morals, and purpose for ourselves.

It’s not enough to discuss what’s not working, we have to look at why and to do that, we’ve got to be courageously honest with ourselves and those around us. We have to be willing to take the risk of being judged, criticized, and abandoned. We have to be willing to stand our ground with the Truth of our heart even when it feels like our world is crumbling around us.

You know why?

That world is an illusion, built out of a false since of safety.

You can keep hiding in it as long as you want, wondering, “Why isn’t my life working? Why isn’t it going in the direction I want?” Or you can step up to the plate and take a swing. Sure, you may miss the ball. You also might just hit it out of the park! For most of us, that option, quite honestly, is far more scary and hence why we hide in the perceived safe zone of our lives.

So what do you need to get courageously honest about?

Relationships:

What do you really want from a relationship- platonic or romantic- how do you want to feel? What do you need and why? Do you give that to yourself first?

What would you most like in terms of sexuality? Are you trying to be monogamous when your heart truly desires variety? Do you want the best of both worlds and what would that look like for you? If you want monogamy, why? Know what you want and why so you can lay the ground rules of your relationship. It’s okay if you change over time, change the rules. They are your rules, after all. But not being honest with what you want and why creates resistance to communicating and stepping into your authenticity.

Health:

What is your body longing for in order to run optimally? What are you giving it instead? What is resisting doing for you? What’s the big payoff (and yes, there are limiting payoff’s as well as expansive payoff’s)?

Why do you want to be healthy? What would change if you did feel better, had more energy, enjoyed how you felt, slept better, and actually wanted to exercise?

Money/Work:

Are you doing what you love? If not, why not?

Where are you punishing yourself around old money beliefs? Where do you feel you have to carry on based on family lessons around money?

Where do you tie your worth and your bank account together? Is that true?

Where are you limiting yourself in both areas?

Politics:

Sorry to throw this in, but it’s time we start talking about what we believe and value along with why. The people running for President aren’t talking about these things and so we’re not talking about these things. Until we do, the behind-the-scenes puppeteer-ing will continue and we’ll wind up with more of the same.

 

Things are coming to crashes and the illusions are shattering rather we like it or not. This blue moon is a time to really look at where you are and where you truly long to be and set the intention to courageously address the limitations we set between point A and B.
