Valentine’s Day
MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Tuesday, February 14, 2017

MOON IN LIBRA
I love that the Moon is in Libra, the sign of love and relationship, on Valentine’s Day. Not only that, but the Moon, the symbol of our emotions, our instinctive responses to life, our need to nurture and be nurtured, is connecting with both Venus, the Goddess of Love, and Mars, the God of Sex. How perfect! Throw in a connection to Mercury, and we get a day filled with the energy of expressing love and desire out loud – hopefully in a loving, balanced way. There’s also a challenge from the Moon to Juno – the Goddess of Commitment – so be sure of who, what, and why you’re committed, or not.

Let’s break it down.

Look for a balancing point between your desire nature and your need for safety and security – for love. If there’s high energy around your desires, the need to go get what you want, be sure to factor in the desires of your partner(s) (intimate, business, and otherwise). Or if you’re concerns center around what’s fair and right for everyone involved, don’t forget to factor in your own needs, your own desires. You see where I’m going. Relationship is a two-way street that demands equality and fairness for all parties, while also honoring what’s right for you and your desires – your will. Balance and compromise between Self and Other are the order of the day. One of the best ways to achieve this is to communicate. Really take a logical, clear view when listening and speaking to the Other. And fully understand your own level of commitment. With a fair and loving attitude this can be a very lovely Valentine’s Day!

WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I open my heart to the people I love with intentions of fairness and beauty. I listen to my own needs in relationship, honoring my own desires and commitments to my values. And then I compromise when necessary. I choose my battles wisely.

MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Thursday, January 19, 2017

MOON IN LIBRA THEN SCORPIO
Shifting, shifting, shifting. Accept today’s very pushy invitation for change, for to resist means being out of emotional sync with your head – or perhaps worse – your heart. Where is your Soul leading your Ego? Digging in your heels is last on the recommendation list. I’m not describing events or actions in life, but rather your process for understanding them. Release the tension by raising your consciousness.

WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I have active, flowing outlets for my internal tensions. I am raising my consciousness toward exhilaration, leaving stuck-ness and anxiety behind.

HOW TO MEDITATE WITH THE MOON

Using these simple Moon thoughts are a wonderful way to begin a daily meditation practice that keeps you focused on, and grounded in, the emotional energy of the Cosmos each and every day.

You can do a very simple 8/4 count meditation, which means you settle into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus on your breath, and breathe in to a slow count of 8, hold it for 4 counts, and then breathe out for a slow count of 8. Hold your breath again for 4 counts. On the in-breath recite a word or phrase from the Moon Meditation in your mind, focusing on that energy and holding it, and then consciously release that same energy out into the world on the out-breath. Then empty your mind space for 4 counts, and begin the process again on the in-breath, either using the same word/phrase you’re working with (until it feels comfortable and “right”) or move on to the next word or phrase from the Moon Meditation.

MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Wednesday, January 18, 2016

 
MOON IN LIBRA
Gain clarity around the differences between a fair and equal relationship/partnership, and one in which one or both are absorbed or lost in the other, or one is victimized, or there is co-dependency. Your deepest emotions may challenge you, so open a space for them, honor them, and move beyond the discomfort into deep understanding. It may be time to catalyze deep-seated feelings and purify them.
 
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I go deep within fearlessly to transform.
I go deep within honestly to find the catalyst.

MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Tuesday, January 17, 2016

 
MOON IN VIRGO THEN LIBRA
When your instincts are challenged by your reasoning powers or sense of logic, step back to get some perspective, rather than forcing anything. Be emotionally responsive and fair with others, while using your mind with integrity rather than ego.
 
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I’m working toward emotional and intellectual equilibrium; I love the people who are important to me and am careful with their emotions.
