I don't know about you, but the lead up to this new moon in Aries has been really intense, with much change/endings/new beginnings happening in various areas of life. Without going into details, I have certainly felt like my whole world changed within a couple of weeks, between the full moon and now, and whilst I could have seen this situation as a disaster and been broken down by what was unfolding around me, I called upon my Warrior Goddess spirit to get me through some major challenges.
I know I'm not the only one feeling these changes, and for those of you who are sensitive to these larger cosmic forces, you may also be feeling like you have either been at war with yourself, fighting a quiet battle, or perhaps you have had a more external expression of this, with strong tensions or breakdowns occurring within or around you.
Some of these are major life changes, to do with relationships/business/home/jobs and others may be more internal as in a change in attitude towards self and others, or a change in our perceptions about where we are and where we are headed. We may feel more self-focused and a need to be independent at this time, requiring space and support from ourselves. This may be as a means of giving to ourselves the nurturing, love and support that we need to get through a challenge, or it may be because we need to focus on our own dreams, desires and life purpose.
There has been a major shake up, and difficult decisions may have been presented for review in regards to our future plans. Thankfully fiery Aries offers us the courage to face these challenges head on, and reminds us of the need to stand strong in our authenticity and stand up for our truth. Aries is the Warrior - strong, independent and competitive. You can call on this energy to help get you through the challenges you may be facing however be mindful not to take on too much of the fire of aggression, anger, arguments and flare-ups, impulsive decisions and selfishness can also be triggered.
If you feel too much fire is rising within you, find ways of getting physical to release this energy through movement, dance, or exercise of some kind, otherwise the suppression or denial of this fire can lead us to implode or explode emotionally, which can be very damaging to ourselves and others. Finding healthy ways to express fire can also include creativity... being artistic, building something, singing, writing, dancing... however the energy wants to be expressed through you.
At this time, there are ideas/dreams ready and waiting or wanting to be birthed, reminding us that we are here on this planet with purpose, and that we are essentially, creators! Our ability to create and be innovative comes out strongly during Aries, as it carries the energy of new beginnings. Now is an ideal time to begin new projects, and plant new seeds for the next cycles. Aries offers us physical energy to get things done, and the expressive, passionate energy to pour into the projects that we feel most strongly about. The determination of Aries can really help us make headway, breaking through to new grounds and blazing new trails in our lives and work.
What new seeds are you planting this new moon? What new trails are you blazing or what is wanting to be birthed through you? How do you express your fire in a healthy way? What changes are going on within and around you?
If you are currently facing some big challenges in your life, remember to take time out alone, preferably somewhere quiet or in nature, to reconnect with your heart and listen deeply to what it has to say. If your mind tries to get in the way, gently ask it to step aside and FEEL into your heart space. Tuning into your soul for your own inner wisdom, truth and guidance, is a skill that anyone can develop. And of course, remember to reach out for support if things get tough... feeling that we are alone in the world is very isolating and can become dangerous if we suppress too much of our pain and fear. Reaching out to a friend or loved one can be difficult, but often the simple act of connection offers us support and a feeling of relief, knowing we don't need to walk our path entirely alone.
During Sacred Circle for Women, you are given the time and space to connect with your heart and soul, learning to listen to your heart and speak your truth. It is a safe and supportive space to learn how to do this, and to be connected with other women for support, wisdom and feeling loved and nurtured.
