Warnings and giftings under the full cold moon

Relax if you can.

I intended to share the warnings first, so then we can get on with the goodies. Here goes:

Please don’t listen to that rude, closed minded person that prefers to derail good intentions and ideas. And don’t get into it with that other troublemaker who starts arguments that don’t solve anything. Definitely don’t listen to any of your old trashy, negative, self talk that runs on and on….here are some other things to watch out for during this transit:

Warnings:

  • gossipy tactless talk
  • taking unnecessary chances
  • indecisiveness and mood swings
  • annoying superficiality
  • depression – Seasonal affective disorder begins with this timing
  • invalidating your intuition with logic (sounds counter-intuitive, right?!)
  • overexplaining
  • saying what you think others want to hear…and being wrong. Gaaa! lol.
  • stubborn opinionated zealots- just let them be- and follow your own truth
  • compulsive eating or compulsive working can be a default behavior right now

So just be aware. That’s all.

Let’s get to the good stuff

The Sagittarius season is here for your growth. All of our growth. The full moon in Gemini amplifies the interesting polarities that make life fascinating.

Here are three essential expansion exercises for this lunar phase;

1. Clear out confining patterns. 

Start by admitting you’re so done with doing things the same way, and be open and receptive to an untried new way…It’s the fast track for a breakthrough…Check your thoughts, see if they are in alignment with what you’re really after, and where you want to be going. Hush up that inner voice that says you can’t have it. I’ve created a self care auditing process that puts you in touch with your heart’s burning desires, when you feel disconnected. Because when your motivation’s clear, you can see the higher goal and know what to do next.

2. Sneak in some moments of self care

You have to create those few minutes down-time, it’s busy with the holiday hubbub. This is the last full moon of the year. It’s timing asks for some real gratitude in that journal, an extra deep breath in an easy yoga pose, or a long languid stretch after sitting too long…

This is the part of the year where it’s easy to overcommit yourself. Don’t skimp out on your self nurturing, it can be as simple as enjoying healthy hot cocoa, saying no to something annoying, or an extra little step in your grooming routine that makes you look hot.

Everybody’s requirements are different, yet here the season demands more of your presence, it can be hard to slow down enough to make it happen. Connecting to your inner divinity, that spark of infinite power is worth the effort.

3. Use your voice and creativity:

Singing loudly, chanting quietly, humming, or conscious breathing as cathartic meditation counts. Each of them bring awarenesses that feel good. Getting into lively enlightening conversation with some new people opens up worlds. Be aware there’ll be shocking stuff that people (and you!) just blurt out during this timing though.

Reaching out. Short texts, gifs & funny memes are great…but talking’s fun, and it’s a good way to make deeper connections, even if the conversation’s light and silly or totally serious and strategic. It can be all of these things at the same time. Get creative by expressing yourself with fun foreign words, flourishing poetry, letters or cheeky notes you could drop in the mail or your lover’s lunchbox. Keeps things fun and lively.

More gifts of this timing:

The ‘Cold Moon’ is an opportunity to connect to some wisdom you didn’t have access to before. It’s good to try to convince your inner ‘know-it-all‘ to be more open- to a wider range of possibilities anyway…that’s when you discover the truth of something big. Sometimes it’s good to have an impartial unbiased objective person (ahem!) help you find the lighthearted side of a heavy situation that’s been really hurting your heart, or making your relationships hard.

This full moon is a blessing of interesting insights with a dose of honest-to-goodness logic… you can have ’em both right now. Especially in relationships, because even if only one of you initiates the shifting with RELATIONSHIP MAGIC, you’ll enjoy even more love and assurance, and way less confusion and aggravation, as you move towards each other in new ways that feel great.
