Why is it that for some people, dreams come true… while for others, they get left behind?
How is it that you can dream up an idea and let it float around in your imagination for years… while others say it, do it, and it’s done in what appears to be a minute?
This full moon is all about the process of manifestation, or rather what I call womanfestation.
There’s a wonderful book called The Timeless Way of Building by Christopher Alexander that inspired me years ago to create by letting, not pushing. Christopher is an architect who doesn’t use blueprints; he allows the Earth to give him direction. This full moon wants us to source through our dreams.
Last year at this time, I had a dream that woke me up with the realization I was pregnant (not that kind of pregnant). Within two months, I birthed a program called Tell Me A Story (TMAS). It’s my newest baby that has allowed me to return to my love of psychotherapy, healing and writing.
Last year, over a hundred people went through the program. I saw my dream come true. It could appear that it happened quickly; however, when I look backwards, I realize I was taking writing classes for years and years in preparation. I had been practicing psychotherapy for over 40 years – so that didn’t occur overnight. And then voila… TMAS was a result of those two practices.
You may not realize you are cultivating a dream. You’re studying Astrology. You’ve started doing readings. You’ve increased your interest in divination cards or numerology. And it feels to you like you’ll never get the dream off the ground of you being a professional “fill in the blank.”
What is it that makes somebody go from a small fascination to a professional success? Such a good question. I think for some, there’s shame or sadness that they can’t seemingly get to the next level. For others (welcome to this full moon personality type), they go from the dream (Pisces) to manifestation (Virgo).
There is no shame in being a flirtatious metaphysical shopper – in other words, being the person interested in all things to do with magic and spirituality, who continually studies. Who is to say that the dabbler/student is any more important than the professional/leader?
My prayer is that Astrology has assisted you in realizing your contribution is evolving. That who you are and what you’re doing is really powerful (when you get the Virgo critic to leave you alone).
When I hear the personal stories from TMAS that have affected every student – from a diagnosis, to a broken relationship, to an abusive family they were handed early on – I realize how vulnerable every human is.
I love this full moon because I value dreaming and dream interpretation so much. I listen to my dreams. I track them. And I follow the directions that come from the invisible world. That’s how TMAS was birthed.
I can guarantee at some point in your life, your dreams were alive and kicking (Pisces). I can guarantee at some point, your critic kicked in and had you feeling less-than for not fulfilling those dreams (Virgo).
TMAS activates the kind Piscean voice that allows you to see the 4,000 reasons we got distracted/victimized by our own internal dialogue.
There was a student in the last class who had lots of Earth. She worked hard and took leadership; however, her Earthbound personality complained along the way about not always enjoying her workload.
Once she realized this and turned that into delight – she’s a great provider/worker. Her love for her fate became more available.
Where is the critic (Virgo) sabotaging your ability to either 1) Accept what you have with delight, realizing your dream did come true? Or 2) making you feel like you’re never enough, you’re not there yet, and probably never will be? This full moon can really hurt your feelings.
With three planets in Aquarius right now, this full moon is asking us for permission to look back at our life with the observer on, only to realize we are doing so much better than we thought.
By the way, your dream did come true. Look around, it may not look exactly like your Pisces imagined, but with a small reframe you can change your inner dialogue and then change your life.
If you’re having a hard time, come join Tell Me A Story. It happens every month with 10 people in a circle with me. This was my dream come true and all it took was follow through.
Let me help you see your dreams come true.
