Hey New Moon, Balance This!

Its-about-balance

When the Libra New Moon comes along and asks us all to attain some greater balance in our lives, I’m like, “Really bitch? How?”

I write this to you at 11:11 pm, after a remarkably long day. Hell, it has been a remarkably long week. But it has been full of very rewarding activities. I’m helping to wrap up delivery on a feature film that will be released in less than a month. I am working on producing a short film that is shooting in less than three weeks. I am starting to get into early prep mode on a short that I wrote and plan to direct in December. I am working on blog posts. I am reading charts for astrology clients. I am trying to get my health insurance changed. I am working out every day and meditating every morning. I am taking care of my dog and spending quality time with my man. I am seeing friends and making time to check in with my family. Now I am sure some version of this sounds familiar to you, as you could also probably fill up a paragraph with all the things that you’re juggling in your life. So when the Libra New Moon comes along and asks us all to attain some greater balance in our lives, I’m like, “Really bitch? How?”

Well, the Libra New Moon wants you to keep moving forward on all the important things you’re trying to execute with your life, but in a way that doesn’t overwhelm you. With so much movement right now, it’s important to take the time to prioritize and bring some structure to the way you’re handling all of your tasks and responsibilities. Libra is also about working with a partner. So don’t feel like you have to take on everything alone. You have others to help you lighten the load. You just have to get out of your own head and way long enough to turn and ask for help.

Take stock of everything you got going on and see if it’s all a necessity right now

At this time, there is also a shift trying to happen, to urge you more into your authenticity. But it’s forcing you to let go of certain elements of you that you thought were in it for the long haul. Be willing to say goodbye to those pieces of your psyche that were really just poor, stubborn habits. If you can do so, you will find yourself open up to more creativity, not just in what you do but also in how you approach continuing to build the person you want to be.

All of this is in the name of bringing more balance into your life. So take stock of everything you got going on and see if it’s all a necessity right now. If it is, then maybe you need to schedule yourself better so that you can fit it all in, but in a way that doesn’t make you hallucinate from sleep deprivation. Perhaps you just need to start putting everything into a calendar. Or again, maybe someone else can help you juggle it better. Just re-evaluate and see. Note that Mercury will be going retrograde on October 4th, so try to get some of this shift into motion before then. If not, you may just fall apart a bit. And that won’t be cute.

Here’s a brief closer look at where you can focus to unlock the door to greater balance:

The Full Moon and Your Personal Legend

the_alchemist_by_rektruk

Paulo Coelho’s THE ALCHEMIST changed my life.

I remember reading it for the first time in the late 90’s, when a friend gifted me a copy. The magical story of a young shepherd on a journey to discover his “Personal Legend” shook me at the core. It just happened to coincide with my own personal spiritual awakening, so it truly felt as if the book had fallen from the sky and into my lap for a deep meaningful reason. Since then, I have read the book too many times to count. I’ve listened to the audio book as read by Jeremy Irons twice. I even still have my original copy, with all of the underlined quotes that spoke to me the moment I read them. I’m obsessed. But if you’ve read it, you know why.

One of the most famous quotes from THE ALCHEMIST is “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” In a recent interview with Oprah, Coelho said that this refers to both “the negative and the positive.” The energy and words that make up our thoughts are what pull things to us. Now this doesn’t just refer to the materialism of The Secret, a book people discovered and thought they could use to manifest a new Bentley. Because Coelho ties it to the purpose of uncovering your “Personal Legend”, or “your mission on Earth.” And “To realize one’s Personal Legend is a person’s only real obligation.” I mean, how fucking true is that?

The reason I do all of the work that I do, whether it be astrology readings, writing this blog, writing narrative screenplays, or making/producing films is to take steps toward realizing my own “Personal Legend”. I know that I am here to translate stories. Whether it be the fictional stories told to me by the characters in my mind, the fictional stories told to others that then need help getting produced and put out into the world, or the personal stories of those whose lives I get to touch when I sit with them for a reading. I know it is somehow my duty to assist in the process of birthing those important stories into the world. And I am grateful for it. I am grateful for such a fascinating mission. But it took me a long time to accept it. And everyday, I grow more into it, with courage and enthusiasm, because I know that the universe has indeed conspired to help me get to this point. I pay attention, with the intention that I can see where I am supposed to head and be clear about the specific achievements that I am supposed to actualize. So, that I can truly realize my “Personal Legend”.

What is your “Personal Legend”? Do you feel at all connected to the great story of your life? If so, how are you taking part in its unfolding? And if not, what can you be doing to steer yourself onto the path?

This Pisces Full Moon is here to help by supporting you in being your most authentic self.

The full moon is making powerful connections to the planets Saturn and Pluto, both of which are concerned with making great change, inside and out. They are trying to get you to remove a mask and bravely reveal more of who you choose to be, instead of just being who you’ve told yourself you should be. And Pisces is all concerned with getting in touch with that spirit self. So go within and ask yourself what’s missing. Acknowledge the wound in your life and find the courage to accept that it’s time for a deep healing. If you can do that, the universe will move mountains to make it so.

It’s time to take greater steps toward diminishing whatever roadblocks you have unconsciously built up for yourself. Perhaps you’ve created some negative story that has then aided in manifesting negativity into your life. Or you may just be avoiding the thing you know in your heart is your true calling out of fear of failing or, even worse, succeeding. Yes, some people fear success because they then have to be seen for who they really are in their hearts. And, when young, they may have been scolded for being who they really wanted to be, creating shame and doubt. I know it’s a lot. But don’t you want to achieve your dreams? Well then, keep stepping toward them by asking those great questions and probing yourself and the universe for answers. Trust yourself, and know that you are capable of finding your own “Personal Legend”. You just have to want it with your whole heart.

And please, if you haven’t, read THE ALCHEMIST. Even if you have, read it again. I swear, it’s some profound shit.

Now let’s dig a little deeper into each sign:
