▽ FULL MOON IN GEMINI || INTEGRATION || If you’ve been feeling torn, indecisive, as if all the archetypes within yourself are battling, you’re not alone. Gemini, the twins represent the dueling forces within us. One that we show to the world + the other we keep hidden for ourselves + our nearest + dearest. One part of you may want to cocoon in a small dark cavern + the other wants to go full force with all the power of your ambition. You may feel elated + confident one hour or day + deeply insecure + vulnerable shortly thereafter. This inner tug of war is asking you to stop the noise + be a friend to yourself. Stop the incessant need to define yourself as any one thing with any one belief. There is a powerful opportunity to befriend all of the forces within you + learn how to integrate those various selves when need be. The most important aspect is that you listen to yourself, truly hear what your heart is calling you to do. When you get still there is no denying your intuition. The challenge is getting to that stillness. Fight with all your might to create time + space to relinquish + surrender to silence. Ask yourself which parts of you are antagonizing the other + go even deeper to ask why. You will be left with answers throughout this conscious meditation. If you continue to dance with the noise you will miss a chance to find a way to love + marry all of the parts of yourself. When these dichotomies unite, not only will you feel whole but a sense of peace like you’ve never known before. How lovely to treat yourself as a best friend would. Compassion for self is to unlock the key to true tranquility. MANTRA :: As I delve into all the parts of myself I bring them together with love + empathy knowing that even those parts I battle with exist for a purpose for me to grow. || art + insights by @dinalockridge ↠ www.
▽ NEW MOON IN SCORPIO || FEEL THE LOVE || This New Moon in Scorpio ignites a much-needed break from our regularly scheduled program of stress, fatigue, hopelessness + unpleasant emotions from the world around us. It calls in an atmosphere of peace + love asking us to take a leap of faith into what can feel like uncomfortable joy. If you feel as if you’re wheels have been spinning incessantly, days fading into weeks + months into years, we now have an opportunity to pause + smell the roses. Not only is that a wise idea + notion but it’s necessary for the experience of being in the world, not just doing in the world. It’s time to go on an inner road trip + get crystal clear about what + whom is serving your environment + what is not. Part of our daily frustration + exhaustion spawns from aspects in our lives we know we need to change or long to + yet having this script in our minds that keeps telling us when I… when that…There is no more time to wait or waste. Take time to sort your discontentment + your joy. Find, write + even vocalize it to yourself + others what you long to eliminate + what you dream to manifest. Scorpio is the sign of sex, death + regeneration so fuel your passions + watch what unfolds. Your energy goes where your attention flows, so be vigilant on taking a hiatus from old stories, hurts or suffering + get your mind’s eye fixated on your treasure. Your heart is ready + willing to explode into a million colors with love, just open the door. MANTRA :: As I shed what does not serve me, I rise with newfound trust, love + passion for all I long to manifest in my life. I choose love. ||
