LIFELIGHT ASTROLOGY 28th NOVEMBER 2016
Well, we’ve finally gurgled our way through the raging rivers of Scorpio… whew…! Now now hopefully we can put our heads up and take a nice big expansive breath of fresh air with the New Moon in Sagittarius on 29th November. The archer fires his invigorating arrows and calls us to lighten up a little.
I’ve been musing about this New moon and what I’m going to write for a few days now and I just couldn’t bring myself to go into anything serious. I have no desire to write about slowing down, being healthy, connecting with our emotions, going deep, transforming, transmuting… or saving the planet.
Perhaps it’s because this new moon is activating my Sagittarian moon (which has been a little soggy of late) , or maybe it’s due to the heaviness and seriousness that has surrounded us for the past few months. Or it could be because I’m just a little soul tired, if not a tad jaded… Its probably a combination of all three.
Whatever the reason, today I’m going to focus on the largess, the generosity, the expansion, the truth of Jupiter…. the ruler of this new moon.
When I think of Jupiter, I think of the laughing Buddha, I think of breaking bread with friends at a table laden with delicious food, flowers and wine, jesters, clowns, magic, travelling to exciting new places, being outrageous, feeling the wind in your hair, diving into an ocean, riding a horse in the countryside, turning up the music and dancing as if nobody’s watching, relishing the smell of freshly baked bread, newly ground coffee, picking some flowers, biting into a strawberry, soaking in a bath filled with bubbles – I think of LIVING, growing and expanding.
A while ago I wrote in my journal…” What if…. there is nothing else I have to achieve… nobody I have to please, nothing I have to do any better or any more perfectly… What if… I was complete right now… if I could accept and embrace myself as I am … this moment?”
When I read those words, I feel expansive. I feel relieved. I feel light. I feel free.
The reality is that when we do manage to let go of the need to control and scheme and analyse, even for short periods, we actually rewire our brains and redesign our physiology. So …when we’re having fun or relaxing, we’re actually healing ourselves and our lives.
I remember listening to a talk I listened to by Deepak Chopra, where he said that when you’re in ecstasy, you create millions of dollars of Interluken 2, which cures dire diseases like Cancer!
When last did you experience ecstasy … or joy… or something close to it?
How can you connect with that again?
So… how about it?
What if, this week and this month, you allowed yourself to embrace the expansive playful child-like you (even for short periods) and released yourself from the prison of responsibilities, concerns and burdens occasionally? What if you embraced your quirky side? What if you bestowed upon yourself the luxury of spending some time doing the things or having the experiences that gave you a sense of freedom and joy?
This is my invitation to you this month – and if it works, maybe for EVER.
I’d love you to share the fun adventures you have, big and small with me on my Facebook page. Let’s inspire each other.
I’m running my Wrap it up Workshop on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of December, so be sure not to miss the opportunity of celebrating and completing the year. If you’re not on my Newsletter list, email me for details.
