We have been motivated to leave behind old ways of being and to step into a more “grown-up” version of the person we want to be
I was talking to a friend last night, and we were discussing how both us and some of our friends are all feeling in a very similar place right now. It’s as if we’ve come through a larger cycle of transformation and change and we’re ready to “leave school for the real world.” In thinking about it, I realized that, collectively, we have done just that. For the last three years, Saturn has been moving through Scorpio. This three-year period has pushed us to face some of our weaknesses and our fears. It has asked us to move beyond our comfort zone and to try on new aspects of ourselves. We have been motivated to leave behind old ways of being and to step into a more “grown-up” version of the person we want to be. It has not been easy, and it may have left some of us in a place of “What the fuck do I do now?” But know that you’ve moved away from some relationships, work situations, home environments, etc, that just weren’t serving you. And as rough as it has been, it has also been rewarding. And you should feel much more in your power than the you who lived in your life three years ago.
Thankfully, the Aries Full Moon is here to help us culminate this process so that we can charge forth into the next horizon. It wants you to take your first major step into the newness of your current, more “grown-up” life. It’s time to take major advantage of the shift that your life has been creating for you. Take ownership of the positive changes you are instilling into your life. You know that leaving your job or committing to your new man was a challenge to undertake, but how strongly are you taking the reins in writing this next chapter? It’s time to seal the deal and just be the damn change already. Feel connected to your instincts and trust that inner voice to guide you properly. Whatever it is you’re trying to manifest, you have it in you to do so. You just have be the guide. No one else is gonna come along with a map and escort you to some gold. You are the map. Just be present enough to the flow of your life to follow it.
I don’t need to take months to accomplish something when I have today
I know this to be true. Three years ago, I was in a job that felt meaningless to me. I knew it had to change but I didn’t know what the change was going to look like. As soon as I took ownership of the change that needed to occur, life took over. It wasn’t always easy but it was rewarding. And now I step into this next phase with that same sense of belief and excitement. But I also know that I can’t sleep on it. I don’t need to take months to accomplish something when I have today. I was lucky enough to jump into the moving waters before so that I could flow into profound opportunities and glorious personal growth experiences. But now, I must stay present so to navigate the rocks and waves ahead. I must stay present to my journey or else it will overcome me and I will be left, washed up on shore, waiting for another wave to catch me. I must stay present because there is no alternative. And you know this.
And now some further words on each sign:
This is your chance, more than anyone’s, to let go of the shit that is impeding your personal progress. You still have so many ideas and goals that you’re keeping yourself from attaining. Use this time to get out of your head and get more deeply in touch with the unique visionary you are inside. You are moving into a place of greater knowledge about everything that interests you and affects your work. And you are so ready for that. So really build the vision by integrating it into your personality. How can what you do and who you are be integrated better into your everyday existence?
Use this full moon energy to connect to your spirit self. You have learned to live your life from a more spirit-centered place, but make sure you’re not spending more time walking than talking. It’s time to hunker down into your spiritual practice so that you can cultivate more abundance and personal growth into your life. Yes, those two connect. The more you make yourself available to the presence and flow of your life, the more greatly abundant your life will be. So get out of your head and stop trying to “figure out” the path. Just get quiet and walk it.
It’s time to begin again with the way you enter into and endure relationships. They always feel like work to you but that is because you and that feisty mind of yours like to make everything into more work than anything actually is. So reconnect to the fun of being in relationships with people. Don’t get caught up in the idealism or need to please aspect of relationships. You have wasted too much time spinning your wheels when it comes to that. Make yourself and your relationships happier by moving toward those who bring you joy. This is a big world but we only get a small circle of others to call our home. So choose wisely.
You should not be a slave to your work or your routine anymore. You’ve done it long enough. Your career life must support a way of life where you can take care of yourself. Otherwise you will lack balance or sanity or both. Make sure that moving forward, you release any unnecessary push to accomplish in your work. It should be organically driven by your passion and not from some subconscious place of needing approval or feelings of being good enough. When you can work everyday from a place of pure joy and care for what you’re focusing on, you’ll know the true meaning of “good enough”.
I feel like there is a new creative exploit you want to embark on. It is something that came up during the recent three-year shift. Perhaps you have a story to tell, or want to uniquely find a way to express some personal truths you have uncovered over these years. Even if you just need to share a bottle of wine with a good friend and unleash all that has been going on in your mind, find a way to get this new aspect of you out into the world in some sort of large way. You need to make a statement about the new you. Whether it’s a piece of work or some actual words, put it out there and let the people see you.
You have been pushed to change the way you think about yourself over these last few years. We are talking the words that you use to talk about yourself in your head, cuz I know you do it. There is no more name calling aloud. There is no more doubting yourself or overthinking something to the point you drive yourself to tears. Hopefully life has shown you that when you surrender your need to control things with how you think they will be, you allow something beautiful to unfold. Now how do you take that kind of approach to your home and family life? How can you be more present to the experience there, instead of being caught up in the criticisms or ideas about how to fix things to the point that you miss the opportunities to actually make change?
It’s time to enter a period where you let go of some outdated ways of thinking about yourself. The last few years have allowed you to give your self-worth more of a boost by following your heart to make changes that simply you must do because they make you feel good. That is so key to life and you’ve now figured that out. But how can you stop questioning the things you haven’t accomplished or give more value to the things you thin about achieving to the point you can actually take steps to accomplish them? Consider taking a first step toward manifesting something that, until now, has just been an idea. Utilize a loving confidante to talk it out and make some moves toward making this next chapter great.
The list of things that you value and find most worthy in life is preparing to shift. And you inherently know what those things are that are looking to rise to the surface. So how can you take some steps with this full moon to make some proper changes to your daily routine and environment to even better prepare for this upcoming shift? Is there anything that is a reflection of an old life that no longer serves you? Perhaps it’s time to let them go. And to that, if there are aspects of your daily routine that need to change to support this larger shift, try to lay that foundation now so that you can ease into it.
This full moon wants you to access your personal creativity in a big way. Thanks to Saturn, you are on the verge of a larger personality shift, or crisis, depending on how you look at it. So to get in touch with your creativity, something that doesn’t waver, will help to offer you a proper foundation as you move into this space of better understanding yourself. Take some time to write, draw, dance, paint, garden – anything that helps to connect you to your creative spirit. Something that clears the mind and just lets your personal essence do the talking. Then, remember that feeling as you interact with the rest of your world. Make sure that you’re always bringing the core of that personal essence with you wherever you go.
Infuse this full moon with energy surrounding your home and family. Try to spend some time in your personal space. Your career has had you busy and perhaps detached from your home. Connect to that space and make it feel like the comfortable sanctuary it needs to be so that you can go out into the world and do your best work. You’re also entering into a longer phase where you will be forced to face and get rid of some subconscious ways of being that have governed some of your more questionable choices in life. So you need a place of solace to nest in as you start to uncover some of the cobweb covered relics you’ve kept around a bit too long.
You have a newly inspired voice to share with the world. And it is one that is based out of all the personal wisdom you’ve been collecting over the last few years. You also know that the best way to express it is to sharpen some of the tools already in your bag, but to also become familiar with some other skills that you may be more of a novice to. So if you have some things to say, find some folks who can help you refine your message or contribute to it with a creative gift that is different from your own. And feel free to put your voice out there in the way only you know how. You’re about to embark into a new chapter that has you facing the issues that have kept you from connecting with your purpose in a way so that more of the world sees it. But if you can have clarity of voice and are willing to face some demons, you will see your truth reaching more of an audience than you ever imagines.
Use this full moon energy to take pride in the work you’ve been doing in your life. You’re in the midst of some personal transformation, and it’s causing you to recognize some things that you haven’t been entirely focused on, primarily in the area of career. But you just want to be working in a way that has purpose. And this current transformation is helping to guide you closer to what your exact personal purpose is, but you wouldn’t be this much closer to it if you hadn’t been taking the chances you’ve taken in the last three years. So pat yourself on the back and treat yourself today. You must remember what you’ve been through to truly enjoy where you’re going.
