Sunday, January 4th, brings us a full moon in Cancer!
Now, Cancer is a water sign, telling us it deals with nurturing emotional matters: self-love, family, and relationships. So, I find it completely fitting to be writing this post with my sweet son nestled into my lap.
The New Year is always a big time for resolutions and goal setting. I say shoot for the moon, but I also say, focus on your feelings. Our emotions are our compass to alignment. “Alignment with what?” you may ask. Well, our happiest selves, truest core desires and our connection to Source/God/Universe itself.
This full moon is here to help us start our new year off on the right foot. This is a time of reflection and evaluating balance between self-care, care for others and work. A healthy individual is an individual that values and loves themselves. For if we cannot love ourselves, how do we share love with anyone else?
When I say focus mainly on feelings, I mean to get to the core of what you desire. For example, when we are striving for a job promotion, maybe it’s the feeling of fulfillment we are after. In each and every moment, we have choices which decide how we will feel right then. That promotion isn't the ONLY way to feel fulfilled. Perhaps, just completing a set of yoga sequences will give you that same feeling, maybe finishing a puzzle with your children or sending a thank you card you've been meaning to write. As we allow ourselves to stay in the vibrations of the emotions we truly desire, we attract more of the same and create a momentum. It starts to come more often and effortlessly. Once we get familiar with this feeling the snow ball effect takes place and before you know it- the job is yours.
Allowing ourselves to feel these emotions is much easier when we recognize old habits and learned behaviors that no longer serve us. This full moon is here to help with this. In fact, you may feel uneasy as these tendencies begin to rise to the surface. Yes, dealing with these energies may seem daunting at first, but if we remain grateful for the awareness of them so we may replace them with new beliefs that keeps our spirits high and consciousness growing, what better way to sift through them?
During this time, the Sun is in Capricorn and will be helping us stay grounded, rational and dedicated as we sift through our deepest emotions. This is a chance to dive deep and bring forth our truest desires and hop on our highest path.
With this knowledge comes power.
With this power comes the ability to change your life in any direction you choose.
So, how do you truly want to feel this year? What makes you feel passionate and alive? How can you let yourself express your unique vibration? Embrace the energies of cosmos this weekend as you dive deep, ground and reach for the heavens!
Namaste & Happy Creating!
