New Moon in Leo
It's an amazing day. I feel it in my bones, through my veins and in each step I take. Power. Confidence. Strength. Security.
Leo roars as the Moon is reborn. Yes this is the way. Yes this is the time. Just so fantastic to be aware in these times. Being alive isn't enough but being aware and moving in and with these energies is the stuff dreams are made from, realized and created.
I had written earlier this morning that, 'New Moon is rising into Leo as she also takes her place within the heart of the Sun. It's a powerful love story beckoning us to reawaken ourselves." I meant every word.
In the last week I have come to understand many things about my own path in this life and was given affirmations to solidify my knowing. I have broken yet another cycle in my journey. I have been on an absolute mission to do just this; break cycles.
I am safe, I am protected, I am strong, aware and no longer worried about that which flits and flutters around me in ways that don't serve me. These things don't matter because I am sitting in the seat of my own soul, loving each moment, every wound and each oppressor or oppressed being that has come my way. Forgiveness, understanding, compassion and love are divine tools I have not used nearly enough in my life. It's taken me until now to understand and let go. And now I sit in in the seat of true love from and within Self and that is a wonderful space to be in.
So when I speak about this time, these energies, I have to look at it from the standpoint of my own life and how it's all effecting me. And oh, how it is effecting me!
Love is the answer to it all. There were so many times that I scoffed at this thought, this reality. How could I possible give love to the hateful? How could I love people hellbent on attempting to destroy that which I work for and love? How do I give love and compassion to haters and narcissistic succubi that take and take without giving in return, claiming that they invented the wheel and are the be all and end all in this life, while so many of us are creating from the heart and in real time, in humble, loving and true ways? How indeed?
If we are really and truly ready to move forward into ourselves, into our truth and our potential then we need to do it from a place of love, compassion and forgiveness. for others and for ourselves. I don't feel the pain of betrayals anymore, or harms. I understand why everyone has acted in the way that they have in my life. I forgive you, I'm sorry I lashed back out at you and I hope you find peace in your heart, in your lives, and within your spirit. I truly don't want you to suffer anymore so I hope you learn to let go, to love yourself enough and to realize your own potentials in this life. Only you attract your negativity in your actions and reactions. I wish you well. I forgive myself for where I was in trying to defend myself against the indefensible and all that was never mine. I get it now and I forgive, I feel so much compassion towards us all for our actions. It may sound cheesy to some but from the very depths of who I am, I get it. It's the most freeing thing I have ever done for myself.

I am responsible for myself and my ways, my reactions, feelings, thoughts and actions. We all are but we seldom see how we are the catalyst for our own woes.
I was told of a rumour that's been going around about something in my life I had no idea about. I say this with a laugh becausee it's just not true. If it were a year ago I would have been angry about it. I would have wanted to fight back and have my say. This year, in this time, with this space that is the entirety of my heart, these 'rumours' made me laugh. There was a time where words would wound me, this is not one of those times. Those times, for me are over, dead and buried. Am I hurt? No. Am I worried someone might believe this rumour? Nope.
I have close ones that know myself and my family. I am not worried what someone who covets what I have and am is rambling on about in their own lack of compassion for themselves. You can't make yourselves look better by trying to make me look bad. You can try and you can waste your time and energies if that's what you wish to do with your time. It's just none of my business, at all. I wish you love and send it directly to you. In all honestly. I don't want to see you suffer but you will do as you see fit for yourself. I have chosen to jump off the wheel of victimhood and selfmade sorrows. I hope for your sake you will one day do the same.
About month ago I was told to get some heart opening stones to prepare for what's going on right now. I wasn't told about the time we were coming into, but it's exactly where I was and have been in my journey. I've been wearing my brilliant malachite necklace from a wonderful vendor who's here from India. It has been bringing me wonderful aide in this time.
I was told in no uncertain terms:
"You cannot harden your heart. You try and you fail at this because it can never happen. You are filled with love and compassion and you can't pretend otherwise, no matter how much hurts or how hard you try. There is no barbed wire around your heart."
Malachite is a stone of balance, abundance, manifestation and intention. Malachite absorbs energy and draws emotions to the surface. It clears and activates all Chakras, and is especially helpful in the stimulation of the Heart and Throat Chakras. An extremely powerful metaphysical stone, Malachite is often called the “stone of transformation” and is used for deep energy cleaning, bringing healing and positive transformation to the wearer. For this reason, many metaphysicians recommend using Malachite in small doses.
On the same day as I purchased my malachite witchy-poo, I also bought a fluorite heart.
Fluorite promotes spiritual and psychic wholeness and development, protection, and brings peace. It helps one meditate and learn to go past the "chatter" that our minds tend to generate when first learning to meditate. Deeper meditation past the "chatter" can give access to cosmic truth, attune to spirit guides or animal totems. This energy can be used to manifest one's life purpose.
And because I always do everything in threes, I went back to her booth last weekend and bought myself some jet.
Jet is commonly used as a stone of protection, yet it also carries some wonderful healing properties, including pain relief for headaches/migraines and enhanced healing of traumatic injuries.
You see, I have been busy preparing without fully understanding why exactly I've been preparing for while being lovingly guided and supported by outside forces and the wonderful friends and family I am blessed to have in my life. We're all supporting each other.
I've been learning to just allow for understanding and truly feel compassion towards that which I can't possibly understand. I've been becoming one with all the aspects of me and showing compassion to that which I am and have gone though without all the judgments and criticisms that I once plagued myself with. For me, this year has proven to be freeing. This season has been my support, my inspiration and my salvation from that which I do to myself.
I have no idea what this time has in store for you, the reader. I only know how i have been using everything in my own life to transform myself into the best and most truest form of my own spirit that I can continuously uncover, past all of the layers thrust upon me that I accepted. What is mine and what is not. This all depends upon me. This , for you, depends solely on you.
It takes time, patience, resilience, compassion and unwavering integrity to see yourself for who you are and what you are here for in this life. Don't let yourself down, don't be your own worst enemy. Be who you are meant to be, forgive the older versions of yourself and when that big beautiful Sun is met by the Moon, know that you have this opportunity to live and be truly within your own heart-space as a force to be reckoned with, for yourself and in spite of nothing and no one. This includes yourself.
It's time for us to roar!
