Let Your Mind Wander...
Find Yourself Recharged, Inspired & Empowered...
Through Stillness & Silence

This Weekend's Full Moon gives us an opportunity to RECHARGE by DOING NOTHING! Doing nothing is a lost art form, and therefore has now become yet another organized task in our self-care regime.  If you are old enough to remember a time before all the technology distractions, you will recall times of "nothingness", letting your mind wander (being bored) as you stood in line or sat in a restaurant waiting for your companion to return (with no phone to glance at).  Now we practice Mindfulness, we Meditate, do Breath-work, go to a Restorative Yoga Class or a Sound-bath.  These are all good things but lack the simplicity and benefits of simply Doing Nothing. Allowing ourselves to "be bored" can refresh us and inspire us to be more productive. Read more about the benefits of Doing Nothing here. Suggestions on how to bring these simple habits of Doing Nothing into your daily life here.

Each Full Moon invites us to up-level.  They show us how far we have come and where we need to make adjustments and re-align ourselves. The monthly opposition of the Sun and the Moon encourages us to engage in and find balance in the Archetypal energies of the opposing signs.  With the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces we are invited to look at our relationship between our Head (Control) and our Heart (Trust). 

Pisces rules our sub-conscious mind. Saturday's Pisces Full Moon invites us to dream, use our imagination and utilize our visionary mind as it will support us energetically in bringing our dreams into reality.  What are your dreams?  What steps do you need to take to move towards your Destiny? Pisces reminds us that our Intuition is a major channel to deeper Guidance and the key to Manifestation. Stillness, silence, doing nothing, connecting with your Heart, Trusting yourself are all ways you can open yourself up to listening to the Whispers of your Soul and engage with your Innate Intuition.

Only hours after the Full Moon peaks, the Moon will meet up with the Planet Neptune (ruler of Pisces) at 24° Pisces.  When the Moon and Neptune combine, we turn into a psychic sponge, our dream world is enhanced, our intuitive radar is jacked up and we become more vulnerable & EXTRA SENSITIVE!  This Moon invites us TRUST OUR INTUITION!  All the more reason to find some time this week to sit in silence, listen to your Higher Self, your gut, your feelings, and nudges.  Pay extra attention to any Insights you have, your Dreams and any Synchronicities . 

Find Stillness & Do Nothing to Recharge Your Spiritual Batteries.
Be Inspired by what is revealed to you in your Quiet Mind.

There is a great deal of Cosmic energy this week/month inviting us to recharge Spiritually.  Only hours before the Full Moon, on September 9th, the Planet Mercury stationed Retrograde joining Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto and Eris in Retrograde motion.  With so many Planets in Retrograde we are feeling the calling to pull back, slow down and reflect on the past year.  When we step back we have a broader view of what is ahead of us, giving us an opportunity to see things with fresh eyes and a different perspective. During these Cycles, Mercury (the Messenger Planet), slows us down, encouraging us to listen to our Inner Voice, our Intuition & our Guides.  With Mercury in Libra, we are sure to see clearly where we are out of balance. Watch for messages on where you need more balance and equality in your relationships.

The Full Moon closest to the Autumn Equinox is called the Harvest Moon,

highlighting what we have produced & what we have lost.
It can bring us both Joy & Grief... both feelings associated with the Heart.

On September 22nd, the Sun moves into the sign of Libra marking the first day of Autumn for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of Spring for my friends in the Southern Hemisphere! On this day, we will all experience equal amounts of daylight and darkness.  During the Spring Equinox, the days are lengthening and your focus shifts outward.  In the Northern Hemisphere, the Autumn Equinox signals a time of growing darkness and Inner development.  Either way, Equinoxes mark a turning point and a time to shift your energy.  Solstices and Equinoxes act as energetic portals as the Sun aligns with the Earth's equator, creating a shift in energy to the Earth's magnetic field.  This interruption of energy creates a greater opening to Higher dimensions during the days around the Equinox.  Hence, the day before, the day of and the day after the Equinox there is an opening for 'downloads", insights and an opening of the Heart.  This makes it an ideal time to set new intentions, meditate, pray, create, participate in a ceremony or do any Spiritual growth work.  September 21st, 22nd & 23rd are extra potent, extra powerful times for prayer!!!!

2022 has been a heightened year of sensitivity & this week adds a little juice to it!

Why has 2022 been a year of heightened sensitivity you ask? Below is a Recap from my March 31st Moon Report- this is a great reminder to (me) us on how to work with this Universal energy rather than being overwhelmed by it:
 
"April 12th, 2022 brings us the much anticipated Grand Conjunction of Jupiter & Neptune at 24° Pisces.  These 2 Planets together have been enhancing our sensitivity, our attunement and our sense of compassion. Neptune rules the sign Pisces, so having Jupiter & Neptune connecting in Pisces brings us a WHOLE LOT of Pisces energy!! The last time Jupiter & Neptune met in Pisces was in 1856, when we were moving towards the abolishment of slavery across the US.  This is a Powerful combo of energy.  When channeled positively, this transit will enhance our imagination, creativity, intuition, compassion, Spiritual connections, as well as our abilities to manifest and heal.  Conversely, this enhanced sensitivity can bring forward patterns of anxiety, escapism, addiction, disillusionment and victimhood. These 2 Planets will be within 2° of one another for the entire month of April and within 15° for the remainder of the year.  It is crucial that we all look after ourselves to benefit from this transit. 

  • REST, stay hydrated, eat healthy foods & keep alcohol/drugs/meds to a limit.

  • Spend time in Nature.

  • Pray, meditate, journal, enjoy time in silence, seek counsel.

  • CREATE!!! Write, paint, draw, sing, etc.

  • Take a bath, REST more!"

Positively, we can use this heightened sensitivity to benefit from our Intuitive Insight, Visions, Creativity and MANIFESTATION!  On a deeper level, we will have a greater capacity to "feel", to Forgive, to open our Hearts, to offer Compassion and to fully Trust!!
