Thursday, October 23rd promises to pack a punch with a solar eclipse and an extra powerful (and emotionally charged) new moon you can use to go deeper in order to explore your relationship with yourself and others; you have the potential to emerge from this experience feeling cleansed, purified and ready to initiate something powerful. Are you ready to communicate your truth to the world? Are you ready to sing your song? You are now in a place where you can make an innovative mark on the world. So, be bold and be brilliant because whatever you set in motion with this new moon has the potential to stay with you for a long time.

In order to move forward from a position of strength you will have to get in touch with what is holding you back. You are going to have to expose some hidden truths. Creative and emotional energy come from the same source. You cannot be fully present living your dream if you are stuck somewhere in the past putting a lot of emotional energy into situations that did not go your way. Sometimes the emotional work that is required of you involves a mirror. When you look at your reflection, what do you see? Are you someone who uses your emotional and mental power in a meaningful and constructive way or is your energy wasted exploring old wounds that are never allowed to heal because you keep picking at the scab? How does hanging onto emotional wounds hold you back from being who you truly are? How can you show some accountability with how you have chosen to communicate your truth so far? What do you receive when you give up control? What do get when you say you are not a victim of circumstance?

Sometimes healing wounds from the past is about compromise and sometimes healing wounds from the past is about letting go. Only you will know what decision is right for you and you will be making this decision from a deep and heartfelt place.

Your own psychic senses will be amplified at this time and will allow you to make decisions from an intuitive place if you trust your instincts. Once you decide which relationships you want to take with you into the next phase of your life, your life vision will have space and the freedom to fly.

If you want to know how you can better use the power of the solar eclipse and the energy of the new moon to create something bold, original and meaningful to your own life, join me this Thursday at What’s Upstairs from 6 till 9. I will be doing tarot readings that explore this very topic.

Tap into natural rhythms, establish boundaries, set intention, and manifest 

I know, most humans do not want to return to a hunter-gatherer status anytime soon (because that life was way too hard!) but does the smallest part of you envy the simplicity and order created by following a natural rhythm or cycle?

The obligations of modern life keep us busy as we juggle multiple responsibilities, work more, sleep less and eat sporadically; technology also keeps the world humming 24/7 and the expectation now is that if you own a cell phone or computer you must be willing to work. I ask you this: What time is exclusively your own? When does the workday end and quality relaxation begin? And how can you tap into an existing natural rhythm to work on the stuff that is important to you?

Since natural rhythms are no longer intuitive many people have to learn how to slow down, learn how to relax, and learn how to just be. There are many ways you might choose to tap into an everyday rhythm or cycle, even if it is just committing to maintenance health rhythms like taking time to eat nutrition food 3 times a day, walking before or after work, or sleeping 7-9 hours a night (if you don’t have all 3 of these things, this is an excellent place to start).

A lot of people also need to learn about establishing and respecting healthy boundaries. Healthy boundaries keep everyone safe. It’s never too late to turn off your cell phone; this allows you to show up and be present in your own life. When you say no to picking up an extra work shift for someone else the 3rd week in a row in favor of spending some quality time with your child you show up to your own life not someone else’s life. When you say no to zoning out to YouTube videos in favor of low-fi activity like drinking tea and listening to a record you slow down and nurture yourself. When you set boundaries you create order and set a precedence. What healthy boundaries can you establish that will create order, add value, and simplify your life?

Once you have tapped into a natural healthy rhythm and established some boundaries with work or your social life you can create some time and space to think big. What cycle can you tap into that will help you focus, set intention and manifest your dreams?

Starting with the new moon on Thursday, October 23rd, you can join me at What’s Upstairs from 6 till 9 for the series, Manifesting with the Moon. Over four weeks we will work on developing skills and using tools that will help us get clear on our purpose and path using the natural rhythm of the moon cycle to chart our course and tarot. Please join me! This Thursday should be especially interesting because of the solar eclipse.
