New Moon in Libra:
To be free one needs to see freedom as an inward change, which is recognizing
the freedom to feel what one feels, to think what one thinks, to say
what one needs to say, as well as to want and to choose what
one wants while also remembering to respect
the rights and freedoms of others.

When you think you care, but you actually don't.

When you think there is no way out, but all you actually
need to do is build a new door.

When you think there is no hope, but there actually are endless resources
within you and all around you waiting to be discovered.

The key to freedom lies within our minds. As the popular saying goes, "Change your mind, change your world." Some might wonder, "Is it really as easy as changing our minds to change our world?" In essence, there is indeed a strong correlation between our inner and outer worlds.

What we believe about ourselves can dictate the way we act and the way we make our decisions. This is not to say that when we feel great about ourselves, we will instantly achieve great success. But what it does is pave the way for us to make decisions that will be beneficial to our growth, and from there, make way for greater progress to unfold. 

A positive correlation between our inner and outer worlds also depends on whether or not we believe in our own thoughts. When we don't let the myriad messages that enter our minds from the outside world to influence us, we make room for critical thinking to occur as well as develop a stronger sense of who we are and what matters to us most. 

A New Moon in the sign of Libra brings to us the opportunity to bring back the balance between our inner and outer worlds. What we actually, truly, care about, and what we actually need to release from our lives. With Libra's ruling planet Venus also back in the sign, we get a chance to restructure our love lives and the way we relate to one another. How can we understand each other better if we don't say what we need to say? 

Speaking our minds shouldn't be about who's right and who's wrong, but more about bringing about balanced communication so that each individual has a chance to infuse truth and authenticity into the relationship. A new sense of mental freedom begins when we recognize that we always have within us the power to change our minds, to shift our perspectives, to bring about change and to transform our lives from the inside out. The choice is in our minds.

In this world you're either growing or you're dying so get in motion and grow.

Full Moon in Aries:
Base your dreams not only on the size of your actions, but also the size of your belief.

Do you have the courage to live your dreams?

Do you have the courage to take full responsibility of your actions?

It may be easier to blame circumstances outside of us when things don't go our way. What's difficult is taking responsibility for what we want to achieve, even when things don't go as planned. There are a number of reasons why we (sometimes) fail to do the things we want to do. 

The first is a fear of the unknown. When we can't predict the outcome of a situation and what effect it will have on our self-esteem, we tend to procrastinate and do whatever we can to prevent our ego from getting hurt. 

The second is the belief that we'll perform better at a later date when we are more prepared or ready. This puts us in a state of indecision - sometimes on purpose, which in turn gives us another reason to validate the stalling. 

Our human tendency to be right and feel safe can also overshadow our capacity to do the hard work, break old barriers and reach our goals. Understanding that achieving something new requires changing patterns of thought and behavior can help us see the necessary steps for us to take to step out of our comfort zones. 

A Full Moon in the sign of Aries brings to us the opportunity to set out on a journey to achieve something new by changing the way we think. How can we overcome past conditioning and form a new mindset? How can we replace old self-limiting beliefs, values and goals in favor of an expanded awareness and a liberated spirit?

It's about time we focused on the present, because that's where our true power resides. It's about time we eradicated fear by taking smaller action steps that can propel us toward our dreams. It's about time we released our old selves and attitudes and affirm: I'm not that person anymore. My new self is here and now!

New Moon in Virgo | Rediscovering the Present (Mini Post)

New Moon in Virgo:
Feeling at home in your life begins with feeling at home in your soul.

Where you feel most at home is where your authenticity resides. 

Where you feel most at peace is where your wisdom resides. 

So where do we truly feel most at home? Where do we find the most peace? Is it by the fireplace at home? Or on the beach at sunrise? Is it while getting lost in the woods? Or while hiking in the mountains?

Wherever it may be, finding some time to de-stress, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, can help us to reconnect with ourselves. It's important to know where our go-to destinations for unplugging and recharging, because stress not only clutters our minds but also the source of many physical health problems. 

Taking care of the clutter in our homes is also another great way to help us 'reorganize' our lives. We can start by asking ourselves, what would we replace if we lost everything? By being more mindful before we bring something new into our lives, we can ensure the only things we add are things that we truly want, love and need instead of things that keep up space. 

Focusing on the present can also help us reclaim our inner peace, because stress often comes from living in the past or the future. Whether it's regretting something that we have done or worrying about what to do next, by choosing to focus more on the present we can keep our problems in perspective. Sometimes, we focus so much on our problems that we forget all the blessings that we have received in our lives. 

A New Moon is Virgo brings to us the chance to remember how blessed we actually are. We are reminded that life unfolds in the present and that we are only misusing the precious seconds of our lives by worrying about the future or brooding over the past. Living in the moment, which is another term for mindfulness, is a state where we are more engaged, more open and more aware of the present. 

Know that living in the moment is not about dwelling on our present worries or mind-chatter, but more about cultivating deeper awareness of our personal power in the present moment. This also doesn't mean that we should avoid what is bothering us, but more about moving toward it from a place of acceptance, and then directing our attention back to our personal power.

As we draw our next breath, feel the power in our souls and the light in our hearts. This is it. We are here, alive, aware and ready for our brand new beginning where we feel more at home, not only in our souls, but also in our lives.
