Can You Please Just Trust Yourself Already?

The Scorpio Full Moon teaches us that we have to let go of emotional control and trust that what we want is already in the process of being manifested

I’m sorry to be so late in the game with my Full Moon piece.  I have spent the last week in New York City at work on the movie that I am helping to produce.  I was also able to visit some old friends who I hadn’t seen in a while.  And most importantly, I was able to reconnect with a city that I left almost ten years ago to pursue a new life and some bigger dreams in Los Angeles.  On my last night in Brooklyn, I was able to stand on a rooftop overlooking Manhattan, and I was struck with the enormity of it.  And I was struck with the fact that I lived there.  A young man with barely any money and no job, I had moved there in my early twenties to follow the lifelong goal to live in New York City.  And I did it.  In that moment of remembrance, I was able to recognize the strength and determination that dwells within me.  But I sometimes lose sight of it and feel afraid or apprehensive.  This trip gave me the gift of hindsight and allowed me to see all of the man that I am.  There, on that building rooftop in Dumbo, I was able to see the fearless man that I can be, and I was able to let go of some of the timid man I had become.  A piece of me had come home, and just in time for the Scorpio Full Moon.

The Scorpio Full Moon teaches us that we have to let go of emotional control and trust that what we want is already in the process of being manifested.  We may have fears around some of the things going on in our lives.  A lot of us are being asked to step up and accept more responsibility for our selves and our life choices.  And this full moon is amplifying that, as our souls are continuing their push towards maturity and growth.  If we are able to trust our intuition and let our purest inner voice guide us, we then can really see the fruits of our greatest dreams start to emerge on the tree of life.  And I know we all want that.  But in order to truly get the dreams fulfilled, we have to believe wholeheartedly that they can.  We have to let go and trust.

Be one who originates positivity and change in your life

The ideas for all the changes you want to take root are still emerging, and those projects you want to bring into full light are still immersed in a lot more discussion that you would like.  But this is the test.  We all must be willing to do the mental and physical work toward manifesting a goal with the belief that everything we want will work out.  If we can’t allow that faith inside and instill it into the work we’re doing, we will instead work from a place of fear.  And that will only cause us to destroy everything we have worked toward up until this point.  So don’t be one of the destroyers.  Be one who originates positivity and change in your life.  Have faith in yourself and what you want.  That is the only way to succeed.

This Full Moon is also an eclipse, which in astrology means that the energy of it intensifies over the next couple of weeks as we head to the new moon in Taurus.  That one will also come with an eclipse.  As Susan Miller calls it, this is an “eclipse season”, as we will then have a third eclipse at the end of May.  All this is to say that everything we are trying to put into motion can happen, but it comes at a price.  And it’s an internal one.  We have to face everything with a strength and grace we may have never seen inside of us before.  Or, like me, had forgotten that we already have.

It’s Time To Be the Star of Your Own Show

Are you ready for the spotlight of your soulful awakening?

Like most of you, I am looking for a new beginning.  But what I have realized is that it’s not going to come in the form of a new job, a move, or a lottery ticket.  It is going to come from the inside out, so I must start by shifting how I think and feel about myself.  You see, I have been clinging on to pieces of outdated fiction that have structured my internal story, and I am finally able to see them for just that – stories.  Simply remnants from the young me that are unwilling to be left behind.  Old mentalities.  Wicked fears.  Childhood regrets and insecurities.  I have known of their existence for some time now, but my mind just could not detach.  They created a sense of safety, as they had been all I knew.  So even when I told myself it was time to let them go, it was just the old me creating a moment of self sabotage.  I knew I wouldn’t really be strong enough to detach.  Until now.

Given all the intense astrological business that’s been going on these last few months, I have crafted some new habits for myself.  They are allowing me to get some distance from the outdated thinking that was holding on for dear life.  Sure, there’s always a chance I’ll slip and end up eating a whole chocolate cake to myself, metaphorically speaking.  (Mine would be a carrot cake.)  But I have to believe that a new beginning is possible, one that I can cease and own.  I have to believe in myself.  For only from honest self-belief can one be inspired to birth his or her greatness.

Spring is here and the planets want us to move into action in a big way

The Aries new moon is here to illuminate the essence of our truest potential so that we can bring a soul-felt new beginning into existence for ourselves.  These last couple of months have been a lot of “who am I?” and “What do I need right now?” moments.  Lots of starts that have gotten us closer to our dreams, but then some stops too, which has made it all rather frustrating at times.  What we must realize is that there were some much-needed tweaks to our internal selves that needed to occur before we could manifest our goals.  Now hopefully you have been doing the internal work to get you more in touch with those necessary shifts you must make.  If not, stop reading and get to work.  Or just make this new moon all about initiating a more honest relationship with you.

A new cycle is upon us.  Spring is here and the planets want us to move into action in a big way.  No more daydreaming.  As some would say, it’s time to shit or get off the pot.  Either we are taking responsibility for the soul transformation into our new unique selves that wants to occur, or we are running away, perhaps never to be heard from again.  And you wouldn’t do that, right?

Let this Aries new moon be your opening number

I hear a lot of you feeling this shift – this urge to break out of old patterns (relationships, careers, ways of being) and really bring the real you to light.  Well now is “make it or break it” time.  And I want to see you succeed.  Think of it as if you have been working behind the scenes on the play of your life this whole time, and now it’s time to take center stage.  Are you ready for the spotlight of your soulful awakening?  Is it time to get out there and give it all you got?  Let this Aries new moon be your opening number.

Per usual, here are some more specific thoughts on each sign:
