Your Soul Planet

Your Soul Planet is the planet in your natal chart with the highest degree excluding the North Node and South Node of the moon, and the outer planets- Neptune, Pluto & Uranus. It is believed that a person becomes the living archetype of this planet. A person’s entire life will be largely influenced by this planet-physical appearance, personality characteristics, karmic evolutionary intention, and disease and illness. In Astrology we view the natal chart as the cosmic blueprint of a soul’s experience in this lifetime,  therefore we view the chart holistically. This does not mean that the other planets and asteroids have no impact on a person’s life. Everything works together. It is a divine system. The Soul Planet just so happens to contain the largest amount of frequencies that will align you to your predestined path.

The Planetary Dimensions

According to various sources including Edgar Cayce and Theosophists, as the soul enters the universe through the galactic centre, it first travels to the star Sirius- the brightest and largest planetary body in our galaxy to receive its divine path. Some believe these are where the Akashic records are stored. From there the soul enters our visible Sun and enters Earth.

As the soul descends through the planetary dimensions, it gathers frequencies from each dimension. It will collect the most frequencies from a specific dimension of a planet which becomes one’s Soul Planet- the planet with the highest degree. Planets in your horoscope with high degrees… 24 degrees and up showcase very strong karmic implications of those planets. Think of it as the planet reaching maturity, consolidation, strength, and wisdom.

The following information about each Soul Planet that I’m about to share is from a variety of sources that I have compiled since stuyding the Soul Planet. I am using information primarily from Edgar Cayce, Theosophy, Vedic Astrology, and Babylonian Astrology.

The Soul Planet goes by a couple of different names

Your Soul Planet

Read about your Soul Planet down below once you have found it in your natal chart. If you’re not sure how to find it, you can comment your birth details and I can find it for you.

**Watch what your Soul Planet does in the sky. Every movement will have a very important impact upon you.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Sun– If the Sun is your Soul Planet you have a life of tears and laughter. There is something innately royal about you- dignified & stoic. If you were born in the daytime the Sun is your Soul Planet, however if you were born at night and the Sun is still the planet with the highest degree in your chart, the Moon will have more impact on your life as the Moon reflects the light of the Sun. You are a bright soul that radiates goodness wherever you go. However, even the slightest negative emotion will radiate, so be careful that you don’t push people away with your strong energy. One of your greatest lessons is to learn to overcome your ego and to learn humility and compassion. Your Father or Father figure will play a key role in helping you evolve and fulfill your purpose.  Your reptuation precedes you and people can read you like a book. You tend to view things on the surface level and some might even think you are superficial. You also take yourself too seriously and can have a feeling throughout your life of missing something.

 

Moon– If the Moon is your Soul Planet you are social, caring, empathetic, psychological, & strong. It is best to have a Moon Soul Planet if you were born at night because this will give you royal qualities. If you were born during the day, your Moon will be weaker. You can become easily influenced by other people, susceptible to psychic attack, & you can be very angry and hateful. You are deeply connected to the emotional body and will learn how to navigate your emotional waters. You will be very connected to all that the Moon represents: your mother, homeland, ancestry, food, and intuition. If your Moon is in good dignity, you will be soft spoken, graceful, and compassionate. If your Sun is in a much lower degree than your Moon or if it is the planet with the lowest degree in your chart, you will feel disconnected from your Mother, and your parents may not have had a good marriage. Following the phases of the moon and taking baths will help you to cleanse unwanted energies that you pick up during the day.

 

Mercury– If Mercury is your Soul Planet this is considered one of the most rare soul planets. Your Mercury must be visible according to the heliacal phases of the planets. Basically, check to see if your Mercury is conjunct the Sun. If it is, it will become invisible…unfortunately most people have Mercury conjunct the Sun because Mercury can never be more than a few degrees away from the Sun. You are very inquisitive, intellectual, studious, versatile- you can actually possess the qualities of all the Soul Planets. You are a mediator and know how to make money. One of your karmic challenges that you will have to overcome will involve the truth. You must learn to be pure and honest in your communication. Your pineal gland is highly activated during your life allowing you to merge your soul with the holy spirit or God or source. You must watch out for self-aggrandizement because this can inhibit the strength of your mind.

 

Venus– If Venus is your Soul Planet, you possess the luckiest soul planet. You are friendly, soft, magnetic, attractive, and always seem to get things for free. You can advance in your career through your friends and partners. You have a very predictable life that will bless you with material comforts. Remember, Venus’ path in the sky makes a pentacle- the symbol for Earthly pleasures. You need to work on your self-discipline because you can be too lax. You need pushes in order to get your life going. The thymus gland is the gland which will be strongly activated during your life. It is a lymphatic organ of the immune system located behind the sternum. When the thymus gland is activated, you find yourself sympathetic, and seeking love, beauty, and music. You will also be strongly attracted to the opposite sex. One of your most important karmic lessons will involve the process of creation and sexual relationships. Learning not to abandon projects and people when the lust wares off will ensure that you keep your integrity intact which will help you to understand the spiritual process of creating something from start to finish.

 

Mars– If Mars is your Soul Planet you are driven by anger. You are unpredictable, & you will change your mind often. You are a self-made person- you cannot depend on others during your lifetime because you will be repeatedly let down. You will have troubles with your boss. You hate rigidity and find yourself getting into trouble quite easily. If you were born at night, Mars is weaker and you can find yourself feeling sexually inferior to others. It will feel as though your life is hanging on by a thread. Everything for you is do or die in this lifetime. If you were born during the daytime, Mars will take on more of a destructive force in your life. The Adrenal glands will be strongly activated during your life. It is believed that the adrenal glands are the storehouses of our karma. This means that you will encounter many karmic people and situations in your life. It is fair to say that you are not here to initiate a new karmic evolutionary cycle. You are here to repay the debts from your previous lifetime, more than paving a new path. You will learn how to control your warrior like power, aggressions, and urges. You will need to cultivate self control. You also have a very high opinion of yourself which makes you very courgaeous.

 

Jupiter– If Jupiter is your Soul Planet you are morally and ethically the best out of all the Soul Planets. You want to save the world, and help everyone you can. You love people and people love you. You are generous and very lucky- lucky in the spiritual sense so you will be able to easily attract good karma to you. You most likely come from an affluent and harmonious family. If you were born at night, you will possess more setbacks than someone born during the day with Jupiter soul planet. The pituitary gland will be strongly activated during your life. It is the master endocrine gland in the body located at the base of the brain. Awakening will come to you in this lifetime. Meditation and prayer are highly favourable because you have the ability to access God directly. You possess high mindedness and an affinity for large groups. You come to Earth with universality and nobility. You have grand ideas and notions. One of your greatest karmic lessons will involve acceptance. An imbalanced Jupiterian energy looks down upon those who are less knowledgeable and capable. Keep in mind that your enemies are your gurus, as are the homeless, and sick. The Jupiter planetary dimension is the most sacred dimension at is is believed that the energy here allows one to experience atonement. We can relate the pituitary gland to the crown charka. When this chakra is balanced, it assists the other chakras in aligning.

 

Saturn– If Saturn is your Soul Planet, you are withdrawn, suspicious, hold grudges, don’t like to give and lonely. You are a person of your word, talk slowly without emotion, you have a big frame, and you don’t like to smile or laugh. If you were born during the day, Saturn will soften. If you were born at night, you will be more harsh. The gonads will be strongly activated during your life. It is believed that prior to incarnating on Earth, the soul spent time in what Christians call “purgatory” a place of cleansing, purification, and starting over. A soul may choose to banish itself to the realm of Saturn if it needs to be reborn. Metaphysically, a soul may choose to start over when it cannot overcome its karmic lessons after trying countless times to no avail. We build up our karma over eons, so going into the Saturn dimension prior to incarnating erases all previous attempts. This is why the gonads are associated with this realm. Sex is viewed as a basic primal instinct that is often abused. A Saturn soul planet gives one an inner sense of frustration and naivety during life, but also an incredible gift of perseverance and strength. You understand suffering more than the other planets, so you come to Earth with a great responsibility to ease human suffering. This does not mean you are meant to end wars and poverty, but volunteering your time in a shelter or working in hospice care will greatly reward you.

4 Things I Learned from My MOON MATURITY

According to Vedic Astrology, planets mature at certain ages which means they come to their full potential. The ages of maturity for the planets are as follows:

Sun- 21

Moon- 24

Mercury- 32

Mars- 28

Venus- 25

Jupiter- 16

Saturn- 36

Rahu- 42

Ketu 48

A planet that has not reached its maturity will improperly express its attributes. Saturn at 22 will lack the responsibility and structure it so desires until age 36.

I will be turning 25 on March 22nd which will be my Venus maturation which can mean that the Venus ruled houses of my chart will be growing up, and the area of relationships, self worth, values, beauty, and so forth will be realized.

Moon Maturity

This past year I experienced by Moon maturation at age 24. As a Cancer Ascendant in Western Astrology this was a pretty big deal for me as it rules my first house, but sits in my 10th house in the Placidus system but actually rules my 9th house. As a very lunar soul, I can say that I felt this maturation quite strongly.

The Moon rules the emotions, our mind, and our mother. All of these areas underwent their transition into adulthood.

2017 was a year of rapid change for me and it normally doesn’t take alot to get me emotionally overwhelmed. However, 2017 I didn’t cry as much as I normally do, and had a more surrendered approach to all of the instability in my life. I was less emotional in the typical moon child way a.k.a crying about every little thing. I had a more adult approach to things in my life. I had more responsibility with regards to my job (10th house), and my perspective on life and spirituality took a more serious tone (9th house).

What I Learned:

  1. You can’t change anyone

Last year I got my first real job at a New Age shop and found myself embroiled in unwanted office politics. I was very dedicated and hardworking. I have a strong business sense, so working there, I immediately noticed everything that wasn’t working at the store. I suggested a lot of changes, and even went out of my way to initiate them, but I soon realized that it’s not my job to educate someone about their own business. If they don’t want to fix it because it’s simply an income for them, then my passion is being wasted. I’m not here to change anyone, it’s not my responsibility, so sometimes cutting your losses and moving on is the only way to get through to some people. Prior to my Moon maturation, I would have had an emotional breakdown at the thought of not receiving recognition, but thankfully my Moon’s growth spurt helped me to emotionally detach.

2. Everything happens when it’s mean to happen…..

As I mentioned, last year I experienced a lot of life changing things. I quit school unexpectedly, moved temporarily, got what I thought was my dream job, and started doing professional book reviews. When I quit school it was around the eclipses in February and it took me until August to secure a job. Prior to my birthday Moon maturation, I was an emotional mess. I sent out tons of resumes and even went to a career counselor who was stumped as to why I couldn’t find a job? Quite randomly one afternoon in August I was perusing a local new age shop’s Facebook page and saw that they were hiring. I felt an overwhelming feeling of needing to apply, even though I thought I would never get it. Low and behold a few minutes later I got an email back from the owner asking me to come in for an interview the next day. I did, and was hired on the spot! It had to take the most obscure job and advert for me to find the job that was destined for me. My Moon maturity helped me realize that as much as I think I have some sense of control over my life, I really don’t. Now I try not to stress so much about things not happening at the speed I would like them to. Waiting it worthwhile.

3. Dont’t be so pessimistic

Yes, I am a former pessimist. I’m a late bloomer, so it takes a lot longer for me to materialize things in my life which creates an unhealthy cycle of self pity and self criticism. Out of the blue this year I had many happy moments. I started to see that my career and life were finally coming together which gave me a sense of hope for the future. My Moon is in Pisces so I tend to get addicted to melancholy and sadness so my first reaction is normally negative or pessimistic. 24 was a big year for me because I finally had a taste of material success. It made me more optimistic, and the more optimistic I was, the more magnetizing I was doing. I didn’t realize how much harm pessimism was causing me, but my Moon maturity helped me understand that life is what you make of it, and we have to find our happiness everyday.

4. Mom’s aren’t perfect

I also would like to add that the Moon rules over our Mothers, so my relationship with my Mom matured as well. For the first time in my life I started to see her flaws and felt a strong need to emotionally detach from her ( we are super close). We also started talking about more serious things about my life such as relationships, if I ever want to get married or have children, when I want to move out, and so forth. These were things that we normally didn’t talk about so it was nice to have a more grown up connection with her. I started reflecting on my relationship with her, and how she raised me which helped me to form an adult opinion of her.

To conclude….

So tomorrow is my 25th birthday (March 22nd) and I am definitely looking forward to my Venus maturation. My Moon maturation completely transformed my emotional world, so I can’t wait for my Venusian qualities to become the ladies they are meant to be.

What did you experience during your Moon maturity at age 24? I’d love to know!

On Spiritual Sustainability

You know you’re in the process of letting go when all you want to do is hold on to it. Our basic instinct is to save what is dying because we are not conscious in our conception phase. This is when the universe takes the reigns for a short bit while we are in a jumbled mess of emotions. We end up feeling extra emotional during transitional phases because we are being forced to follow our feelings like an invisible thread. Following that thread usually takes you to the unconscious beginning of that end. For example, when a relationship is ending you naturally feel sad. When you follow that sadness it will lead you to the feeling that got you into you that relationship. Maybe it was a lack of self love? Things end as they began, so perhaps the key to sustaining something is through growth. A seed is never meant to be a seed forever. It has to flower eventually. When a plant dies it returns every part of itself to the soil and becomes a seed once again. I have known people who owned the same plants for 20 + years. It’s not unheard of but does require tender loving care a.k.a sensitive attention to its needs. When we experience a positive new beginning we are excited and optimistic. Unfortunately those feeling soon ware off once we become caught up in routine, responsibility, expectation, and the need for recognition. These become blocks to our conscious awareness. We bottle up irritability, hurt, and stress out if fear that if we were to express them, we would lose our relationship or job or whatever it might be. Imagine what would happen to our plant if we stopped enjoying the beauty of the plant and got caught up in having to water it everyday and remove its dead leaves? You would lose interest in the plant, ignore it, and eventually it would die. The minute we stop being conscious participants in our own growth, that relationship or job dies.

With all of the Astrology and occultic subjects I have studied, I have come to learn that the only free will we have is how we choose to respond to events in our life. If we take time to be present in our endings we will realize that we abused the gift of its beginning. If you are someone who has experienced alot of death and rebirth in your life it’s because there is some major theme that has not been made conscious in order to be released. There is a huge difference between abrupt endings and death and that is…..Consciousness. Most of us have not experienced a true death ( I don’t mean physical death)  more often we have experienced things ending suddenly or unexpectedly. This is the higher self’s way of giving you a time-out. Death on the other hand is when you have reached a maximum exaltation point in a karmic lesson. These are usually preceded by an emotional breakdown and are succeeded by a major life changing event. Too often we experience loss because the person we are with or situation we are in, are no longer facilitating our growth because it wasn’t consciously chosen by us in the first place. How many of us entered a new relationship or job with the goal of growing as a person? No, we want security, money, lifestyle, acceptance etc. The more aware we are of why a new beginning is happening, the easier it will be for us to see that invisible thread that is guiding us to our truth. That sight is how you can sustain something in order to fulfill your karmic lesson, as opposed to having to go through tons of people and situations to fulfill it. Maintaining your conscious participation will allow you to live a fuller life.

 

Winterizing your Root Chakra

For the past couple of weeks I have had countless coincidences regarding my Root Chakra. I’ve never been one to closely work with my chakras‚sure I know the basic functions of them and some of their correspondences, but that was about it.

For those of you who don’t know what the Chakras are—essentially they are energetic centres in the body that are responsible for the proper functioning of our energetic health. There is a whole lot more to this complex system and I encourage you to conduct more research in order to fully grasp and harness the power of this system.

Symptomatic

Since receiving some pretty loud and clear messages from the universe and my body, I have learned that I have an over-active Root Chakra a.k.a Mulahadra or Base Chakra. This explains all of the weird symptoms I’ve been having, such as insomnia, digestion problems, irritability, annoyance, and materialism (over-spending). One of my more chronic conditions is Psoriasis- which is an inflammatory skin disease that is caused by your skin cells reproducing faster than normal due to food allergies, stress, and other environmental factors. I never knew that these issues were connected to the Root Chakra but since learning this, I have been on a quest to learn more!

What is the Root Chakra?

The Root Chakra is the first of the seven chakras which is found in the reproductive area. Ironically the Root Chakra does not rule the feet. Rather, the Root Chakra draws up energy from the earth through the feet and is transmuted in the reproductive system through the release of hormones. When we are not receiving sufficient grounding, we imbalance our physical body—resulting in health challenges.

Grounding is the main function of the Root Chakra. When it is disconnected from the earth, it can not dispel negative emotions from our bodies, hence why we can experience moodiness and other symptoms like the ones I previously mentioned.

Is my Root Chakra Over-Active or Under-Active?

An Over-Active Root Chakra can manifest as the following traits:

  • Nasty Temper
  • Insomnia
  • Digestion Problems
  • Irritability
  • Over-Spending
  • Very Strong Libido

An Under-Active Root Chakra can manifest as the following traits:

  • Body image issues
  • Feeling out of control in your life
  • Feeling extra sad—depression
  • Laziness
  • Anemia and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Inability to focus or concentrate
  • Restless
  • Disorganized
  • Low Libido

**As always, it’s important to consult your Doctor before assuming this is the only reason for the above mentioned symptoms.

Earthing

Earthing is the best way to re-balance a Root Chakra. However, we run into a problem when the climate we are living in does not allow for Earthing. I live in Ontario Canada which makes earthing in the winter time impossible. I cannot walk barefoot in the grass when it’s covered in ice and snow and even going for a walk outdoors is very hard when the conditions are intolerable. So, how do you winterize your Root Chakra?

Winterizing Your Root Chakra Techniques

  1. Buy cat grass to run your feet through
  2. Do some indoor gardening
  3. Eat root vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, and beets!
  4. Root Chakra Meditations—super easy to find on YouTube
  5. Listen to drum music
  6. Work with grounding crystals such as Black Tourmaline, Onyx, Hematite
  7. Physical activity such as dancing and running
  8. Have a foot salt bath

Tips

I wouldn’t recommend using all of these techniques at once, as you want to ensure you are not becoming so rooted that you are throwing yourself off balance. Being too grounded has its problems as well such as over-eating, inflexibility, and grumpiness. Try using one of these techniques at a time. Keep a journal to take notes of how you feel afterwards. If you don’t notice a difference, try incorporating more than one of these hacks into your life.

Remember, healthy roots means a healthy plant!

New Moon Solar Eclipse February 15, 2018: Back to the Gypsy that I was…

The Solar Eclipse in Aquarius will see our consciousness obscured by our mind and deep emotions. Our shadows are coming out full force and we will find ourselves focusing on all of our insecurities. We are feeling impatient, annoyed, used and abused. Highly evolved Aquarian energy fully surrenders to its divine plan by expressing its creative genius. This is the raw undoctored part of our self that represents our inner Sun. When we are authentically living, we can humbly serve the greater good of humanity. The Aquarius water-bearer is able to pour the water out of its vessel because he has cleansed himself of the external (Leo), the basic primal needs and desires of the ego. He has become an Angel, ready to serve. How can you give if your vessel is empty? If you are feeling overwhelmed by a sense of lack during this eclipse, ask yourself if these insecurities are really about You, or are they really about the ego? You can best serve your greater good when you come to understand that you are never empty. You have everything that you need when you need it. If you are wanting a relationship, be present in the relationship with yourself. If you hate your job, be a better employee to your higher self. If you feel scared, tell yourself you feel excited since fear is anticipation in disguise. When you start serving your higher self, you give to the world. We have a drought of conscious people right now, which is why we need more Aquarian souls to start drenching the collective with high vibes. Fill yourself up with humility and gratitude and the overflow will nourish everything you wish to magnetize. Water doesn’t repel, it heals.

The eclipse will be occurring on the South Node of the Moon which rules over our karma and the past. An Aquarius South Node will release all that is preventing us from living authentically. Aquarius energy is a freedom fighter, wanting to break free from safety and the status quo to follow its heart (Leo North Node). Consider this eclipse to be liberating and empowering. You’ll realize just how controlled and restricted you have been in the Aquarius ruled house of your chart. With the eclipse conjunct Mercury, there is a need to communicate your freedom and in typical Aquarian unpredictable fashion, expect the unexpected. A square to Jupiter indicates that self-respect is needed at this time so you don’t make a mess of things. Moderation and consideration for others is important. This is reiterated with the eclipse conjunct the asteroid Juno. Juno is an asteroid of marriage, and while marriage news and wedding talk might be more pronounced at this time, it will be the coming together of your higher self with your external reality that will be the ultimate union.

Song of the Eclipse: Gypsy by Fleetwood Mack

The lyrics to this song exemplify the energy of this eclipse. it’s about being struck with the realization that we are all gypsies at heart- following the call of a divine plan, even without knowing its destination.

So I’m back to the velvet underground
Back to the floor that I love
To a room with some lace and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was
To the gypsy that I was
And it all comes down to you
Well, you know that it does, well
Lightning strikes maybe once, maybe twice
Oh and it lights up the night
And you see you’re a gypsy
You see you’re a gypsy
To the gypsy
That remains
Her face says freedom
With a little fear
I have no fear
I have only love
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love
She is dancing away from you now
She was just a wish
She was just a wish
And her memory is all that is left for you now
You see you’re a gypsy, oh
You see you’re a gypsy
Ooh ooh, oh oh, oh oh oh
Goodness strikes
Maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you
Ooh oh, and it all comes down to you
Lightning strikes
Maybe once, maybe twice (oh)
I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
(And it all comes down to you)
Songwriters: Stevie Nicks
Disclaimer: I am aware that the term ‘Gypsy’ is offensive, however in the context that I am using it, it’s merely a way to describe a Bohemian spirit.

Tales from the ’11’ Part 1

Recently on my Facebook feed, I came across someone I know who was lamenting about how she is such a kind person who always helps out others and doesn’t receive anything in return. I found this irksome but also a perfect illustration of the shadow side of the 11 universal year we are currently in.

Sure, we’ve all had feelings of “you owe me” and “I owe you”, but if we take a minute to analyze what is really behind this, we can see some pretty interesting things going on.

gIvIng

As soon as you attach an expectation to giving to someone, it doesn’t become about the act of giving or about the other person, rather, it becomes all about you. The act of giving should be a selfless act, one that fosters humility and grace as opposed to gain. If your motivation of giving is to attain something back, you are only giving to your ego.

The 11 year in numerology is one of awakening to our soul signature, our purpose, our calling, our destiny- whatever you want to call it, it’s about the ugly duckling transforming into a swan. The root number of the 11 is 2 whose core lesson is that of giving and receiving. Just look at the word ‘giving.’ It contains to ‘I’s’ that look like an eleven. You cannot receive without first giving, so if you’re feeling frustrated about not receiving anything- maybe the problem is that you are not giving in the first place? The great thing about the ’11’ is that it will teach you how to be in both a giving and receiving energy at the same time. However, this first involves cultivating a proper self image.

More on this to come……..

New Moon in Sagittarius: The Vision Quest Completed

Date: Monday December 18

Moonbeams: Visions Realized, Reality Checks, Burdens Lifted

The New Moon in Sagittarius is not going to feel like your classic New Moon. Saturn is exiting Sagittarius at the time we have this New Moon. Saturn is a dense slow moving energy so wherever he leaves, you will feel a great weight lifted off of your shoulders. You won’t necessarily experience new beginnings in the Sagittarius ruled area of your life, but you will reap the rewards of the restructuring that has been going on here during these past two years. We have an ending and a beginning happening simultaneously.

Sagittarius is a sign that is associated with our higher perspective, so expect the New Moon to give you that major reality check that has been in the works since 2016.

We will have the Sun, Moon, Mercury RX, and Venus in Sag, so the emphasis on your Sag ruled area/house will be forcing you to ponder the lessons you’ve learned here.

Reach for the stars and accept your reality for as it is. Your vision quest in Sagittarius has come to an end. Saturn in Capricorn will help you to collect your trophies and receive your medals of honour.

 

 

The Body Heals Itself by Emily A. Francis: REVIEW

The Body Heals Itself looks at muscle memory from a metaphysical perspective. This book has a Louise Hay ring to it because she built her career on her books about the emotional body. This book takes it a step further by focusing in on our muscles- which is something Louise Hay did not.

A discussion on the biology of muscles was included to help readers understand their functions. From there, muscles as storehouses for memories was included using both biological and spiritual examples. The author’s main point was that when muscles are massaged and stretched- emotions are released. She gave examples of clients she worked with who were able to discuss and heal old wounds when their muscles were massaged and activated which helped to prove her point. Chakras and meridians were also described, which is pretty standard for these types of books.

By the far the most interesting and important part of the book was learning the emotional component of each muscle group which is directly linked to their functions. Stretching techniques were included, along with recommended crystals, and essential oils. The main thesis of the body healing itself comes through when by the end of the book we are reminded that muscles remember when they are healthy as does the body. Our body stores emotions in order for us to go within and release them. Healing can only occur when the body is an active participant.

Overall a fascinating read that will ultimately offer a deeper appreciation of something we take for granted- our muscles.

 

Full Moon in Aries October 5, 2017: Putting Out the Flames

Moonbeams

Moon in Aries opposite Sun in Libra- you vs me

Moon opposite Mercury- feelings are not being communicated

Pluto Square Moon- Control and change is needed, but we feel nervous about having to make a change

Mars in Virgo conjunct Venus in Virgo- small details is what is needed now, gentle energy

Mars trine Pluto- taking small practical steps is the way to handle all of this fire

Mars square Saturn- we want the small steps to make fast changes, but Saturn is slowing us down with his methodology

Mars opposite Neptune- just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean there isn’t work going on behind the scenes

 

A full moon in Aries always sets off fire alarms in the cosmos. Action for the sake of action is meaningless until inspiration is thrown into the mix. I get the feeling that for the past couple of months, on an individual level, we have been robotically living, meaning that our lives have been hectic and busy but missing joy and heartfelt ambition. When we are in the season of Libra, it becomes very obvious where we have been giving too much of ourselves at the expense of our own well-being. The Full Moon in Aries is going to push us to take small practical steps to change our lives. With the moon opposing Neptune this can be as simple as saying “no” or standing up for yourself. It is during fiery times that we come to appreciate the little things in life. It’s time to take a break and pay attention to whether your hectic lifestyle is for selfish reasons and if you are offsetting this by taking the time to help others? Venus in Virgo conjunct Mars in Virgo shows the need to want to express loving sentiments to others, and we must remember that when we serve others we are indirectly serving ourselves. The most important thing to keep in mind during this lunation is have you been self-serving or self-sacrificing lately? And is there a difference between the two?

Psychics- Mindfulness Coaches Incognito

Today someone I know had a psychic reading done with a psychic friend of mine. She left feeling empty, unsatisfied, and scammed. It’s sad to say that her experience is certainly not unique. How many of us have had a disappointing psychic reading before? I know I sure have!

My Experiences

My first Psychic experience was an Akashic Record Reading. I went in very open minded hearing but when she told me the truth very bluntly, I left in emotional shambles because her reading did not resonate with me. I also did not feel that she told me enough of anything, and what she did tell me was very vague.

My second Psychic experience was with a ruff and gruff woman who ironically is now going to be co-worker of mine. She spent the entire reading pointing out all of my flaws and sounded quite angry with how I’ve handled things in my life. She predicted some things as well, and some have come true, some have not, and some have yet to manifest. I was hoping for a more predictive kind of reading, and not a telling-off.

Many family members of mine have had readings over the years, and I’ve noticed that since they are quite intuitive themselves, they leave the readings not believing the psychics and feeling like it was a waste of time. Psychics have a hard time reading intuitive people because they sense they are being watched very closely which causes them to stumble.

Presence

The reason why I’m sharing this is because most of us have this notion that a Psychic will look into the future and tell us every little thing that is going to happen. The reality is, most Psychics can only see bits and pieces of your journey in the present. There is no true way of predicting events because the future is malleable. Yes, we all have a destiny that has been carved into stone, but the stone may chip, break, or get etched with images. Basically, as we change, so does the journey to our destiny. No Psychic can tell you where you’ll end up, only a vague description of how you might get there.

It’s when we aren’t getting the results we think we deserve that we become desperate and want to know how to get “there.” When we learn that stagnancy and struggle are there to wake us up and rethink, only then will we focus back in on the present in order to make a change. Mindfulness is the underlying message being brought forth in readings.

A Psychic can only read your current vibrational signature. You might have been to a Psychic who accurately predicted everything for you, but I believe it’s because you were consciously co-creating those events because you believed the reading so strongly.

Final Thoughts

At the end of the day, you are your best Psychic, because everything that is meant to happen will happen. Will knowing it’s going to happen really offer any relief? Or will you find yourself fixating on it, ignoring the present, and in turn manifesting your fixations? Psychics aren’t some mystical seers who can predict the future. If you want to know the future- read your present.
