Crazy lunar happenings this week. It’s a supermoon (full moon) in Gemini and the first feels of Mercury in retrograde. don’t worry if you missed the moon last night! It’s the closest it’s been to Earth for all of 2017 right now so you can still see it in all it’s glory tonight.
The Moon is most powerful when at Full Moon, when her light outshines the light of the Sun and our emotions are stronger than our Solar consciousness. Just look at the Full Moon. The Full Moon is honest, the Full Moon reveals herself entirely. When full, the Moon wants to expose everything, to show things as they really are The Full Moon on the 3rd of December is in Gemini, and will be all about illuminating the truth. (source)
“The full Moon on the Gemini / Sagittarius axis is a quest for the truth.”
In a few weeks, it will be Capricorn season-aka Whitney season. I can tell already. I’ve decided years ago just how intuitive I am and I can honestly say I feel the effects of things like this. There’s a spark in the air around my birthday. It’s easier to hear my thoughts and drop facades and let myself have more fun. I never put two and two together until now actually….that’s probably why I love the holidays! I just always attributed it to being festive and in the spirit but now it all makes sense that it’s probably closely linked to my time of year.
I finally decided on a new planner from Danielle LaPorte for next year and I’m excited to use that little baby. It’s beautiful and massive and full of good words. Check it out! LOVE the look and feel.
I’m using it this week to remember all the things I want to be and how I stopped myself from fulfilling that potential the past few months. In a good way. Nothing too deep…that’s not true. I want to go real deep and listen to my soul (feel free to insert eye roll). We teach people how to treat us by how we treat ourselves, which brings me to my second point.
I have vacation this entire week. Long story short: I had a trip planned that my inner self was so not feeling so I cancelled. The minute I got my hotel refund, I felt crazy relief. What I’ve been craving was time away but not away. You get it? (Staycay? Yes way! Hah!) Now I’m doing some major R&R and detoxing in the form of workouts, clean eating, and home organization and cleansing ala Marie Kondo. Attachment gets us nowhere, my friends. I also have scheduled a facial. It’s literally been years since I had one and I don’t want to wait until my skin hates me to start that pampering. Lets be proactive. I’m not getting any younger, although it is said to be true that Capricorns age in reverse. I can attest to the fact that I used to think I was like a 35 year old and serious as a jr. high kid. Now I think I’m 16. Don’t hate me when I’m youthfully glowing at age 72.
Anyway, enjoy the holiday vibes going on just about everywhere and take time for YOU in between all that present shopping.
Case in point below. A wonderful Whole Foods trip that involved lots of gifts for family members also included me finding this (yet-to-be tasted) Mint Cocoa Califia Farms almond milk creamer. Um yeah, I bought it for myself. It was a necessity. All in the name of self-love. As was posing for a pic in front of the bulk nuts.
Be good to yourself this time of the month! It’s not just the full moon phase; it’s almost a new calendar year. 2018 is in sight. This is when you reassess and are able to see things in a new light. We all have things we want to leave behind. It might have been wonderful once but nothing is meant to last forever and stay the same.
There’s nothing wrong with moving on from what no longer serves us. Make room for the new surprises.
