This Week's Astrological Reading
Blessings all and welcome to 2017!
At the beginning of the New Year we are prompted to set ourselves goals and make resolutions that will help us shape our vision for the upcoming 12 months. Every month we put a lot of emphasis on cycles, particularly those which are influenced by the phases of the moon. We speak of new beginnings, letting go and completion and the new year for many of us signals the start of an entirely new cycle. What is really important about this time is to utilise the momentum and motivation that we feel to put the changes we envision for ourselves into action!
As we settle back into the swing of things it is important that we try to maintain this momentum and follow through with the goals we were so passionate about only a week ago. If we can keep pushing forward we will well and truly be rewarded in the long run as we start to see our resolutions become reality.
The cosmos, planets, spirit and the universe are all here to support us (and what feels, at times, hinder us) in shaping our lives into what we want them to be. However what really creates lasting and true change is our own will and work. We are all blessed by the universe but it is our actions and thoughts that create our reality and we are responsible for how that reality looks. That is why it is so important to make time for your spiritual practices and work on yourself internally, so that you have the tools to help you through both the good times and the bad.
This week we have a Full Moon in Cancer on Thursday the 12th January. This Moon in Cancer is in direct opposition to the Sun in Capricorn and could not be more relevant for us right now as we are in the process of re-organizing our lives and priorities. Cancer represents our private lives, relationships the nurturing side of our self and Capricorn is our public life, career, ambition and reputation. This Full Moon encourages us to find the balance between these two forces, as the sun and moon hold the polarities of these aspects within us.
Take the time this week and join us for Cosmic Merkaba Meditation to reflect on these opposing desires and how you can bring them into balance in your own life. The Full Moon ritual is also a great opportunity to let go of all that no longer serves you in 2017 and look to the bright future in the illumination of a Full Moon.
