So. It’s a new moon in Libra. What about it?

How do we create a life that feels completely balanced and more our own?  

When you take a look at how you spend your time, it can be extremely eye-opening.  I’m talking like breaking it down into a percentage.  Most people spend a third of their day working.  Now if you take away about another third of that for sleep, you’re left with one third of the day for yourself.  Now that doesn’t include whatever commuting you need to deal with, as well as the basics of eating, getting ready, etc.  So then how do we spend those few precious hours that are all our own?  Well, there are movies and TV to watch and things to buy and websites to browse and phone calls to make and gym routines to do.  You get my drift.  It’s fucking hard to balance everything out.  My tired eyes are proof.

I believe that one should live a full life, but it’s challenging when you work so hard to get everything you want in and still feel like you haven’t accomplished much at all.  Maybe I’m an over-achiever in that I have a million aspirations.  Or I am just so good at piling a billion things onto my plate that I ultimately just keep myself from giving my all to any one thing.  Well, either way, I’m struggling to find balance in my life.  I do my best to wake up and get in some ‘me time’ before I have to get into the car and drive to the office.  But there is so much I want to do for ‘me’ that a couple of hours before work barely cuts it.  I want to meditate.  I want to write.  I want to read.  I want to work out.  I want to play with and walk the dog.  I want to cuddle with my boyfriend.  It’s so much to try and split into tiny little pockets of time before my long day of work actually begins.  Sometimes, I think that I need to better organize it all, or I need to get up at 5:45 instead of 6:45.  But then my brain will be so slow from the lack of sleep.  What to do?  It’s a major frustration and one that I know I’m not alone in facing.

So what do we do?  How do we create a life for ourselves that feels completely balanced and more our own?

So. It’s a full moon in Pisces. What about it?

We have to allow ourselves to go beyond the beyond. 

A few days ago, I was chatting with my friend at work, the Taurus, about this upcoming full moon in Pisces. We were talking about doing some sort of guided meditation to commemorate it and given that my guru friend who is excellent at leading them was going to be out of town, we started to think on other options.  I felt like she was fishing a bit for me to offer to lead one, since she’s always pushing me to embrace my spiritualist side more.  But I didn’t want to cave.  I’m not the guy that sits in front of others and guides them into the inner depths of their souls.  But almost as if someone else spoke for me, I heard myself offering to do it.  I riffed on what a full moon in Pisces could be about and in moments had a firm concept for a guided meditation.  However, I left our chat with some major trepidation about the whole thing.  Sure, it’s just going to be me, and a few of my friends, but still I didn’t want to fuck it all up.  Was this going to be a huge mistake?

Since then, I feel like I’ve received signs that have confirmed my thoughts on this full moon.  First, I got deeper into planning the meditation, and in talking it through with my boyfriend, the Aquarius, found myself to have some own inner breakthroughs about it.  Then, I received some intriguing, slightly frantic texts from a Pisces/Aries friend who was in need of some spiritual therapy.  As we hopped on the phone and I pulled some cards for her, we were able to unearth some truths that were in total alignment again with what I thought the full moon was trying to bring on.  And the Aquarius has a Pisces rising, so he too was digging into places that only felt amplified by his full moon task.
