What happens as the years go by?
One thing’s for sure: gravity takes over. They call it aging: gravity coming to your body, face, ideas… Two stubborn persistent truths: gravity and reality.
As you age, you will find that you care less and less about what others will say. You learn that what YOU think about ME–is none of my business. This truth is liberating.
When you finally get to be you, life begins. Staying true without making excuses to please the ‘other’, is actually energizing and fun. For those of you how have lost your fire, here is how to rekindle it.
Welcome to this full moon where you are allowed to show up as YOU (which too often is called ‘selfish’). Selfishness can often be thrown as an accusation at Leo. At it’s worst, Leo is self-centered; at best, Leo is free to show up, show off and have a big fat life.
This full moon combo of Leo and Aquarius is anything but boring. How are you doing with your freedom to be–dare I say it–selfish?
It took me years to know that if I was true to my taste buds, if I followed my energy, if I made no excuses when I didn’t want to go to the dinner party or hang out with people (because I am an introvert), that I had no obligations to people for its own sake, that that would free up my spirit and walk me straight into my soul, cultivating the freedom and expression of my true self.
This combo is telling YOU to try to practice self-FULL-ness–distinct from selfishness. It’s easy for me to say, said the seasoned Astrologer, but I want you to know how to find your unique self and live it fully!!
Tell me: when is the last time you allowed yourself to be naked and unashamed? This is an opening that can happen with this full moon.
Mercury retrograde is here, too. See if you can revert back to some old innocence you left behind–when you didn’t judge your body, gravity and reality. When the clay was wet and you still had hope. Pick back up the part of you that is young and willing to be you no matter what. I have never let my kid go too far away.
Where is your kid? Bring it back out and feel the authentic self snuggling up to those you love.
