Four Steps To Becoming ‘A New Human’ & Awakening To Your Soul Path

Published

on

9Having waded from the shallow waters of a material existence into the deep profundity of an ‘awakened’ lifestyle, spiritual healers and twin-flame soulmates Eden and John have now dedicated their lives to helping others discover what it is to become a New Human. Here they share some tips on letting go, calming down and listening to our hearts.

What is the concept behind your Becoming A New Human project and how exactly would you define a New Human?

zEden_ShootPromo2Eden: The New Human concept came about in our experiences working with people at the soul level. Those who are awakening are realizing there is something more to who we are, and that humanity as a whole has the ability to completely transform itself. We are using a fraction of our abilities. We are just barely beginning to understand the true powers we hold in creating our reality and being in harmony with Earth. There is an absolute difference in the abilities of those who have shifted in the last 10 years, such as being more empathic and sensing others’ energy, visioning or “3rd eye” psychic abilities, as well as the ability to help others heal. There is also a lot of information coming through on the actual physical changes we are undergoing in order to hold a greater energy for all of these changes.

JohnGermainLeto_PromoShotJohn:  For me, the New Human is about taking the components that are the deepest elements in life, and bringing them to the foreground. It’s reversing the way that most people live in life. Instead of the priority being the literal level, mental level, emotional level, and then spiritual level, it’s flipping it so that the order of importance is the spiritual, emotional, mental, then the literal.

It’s more of a movement than a project meaning we encourage each person to find their own highest path and listen to their soul’s calling. Once you set your intention to awaken and re-remember who you are, you will absolutely be guided and supported in your awakening in a way that’s right for you.

We’ve organized the initiative into 4 core areas on our website, and we provide concepts and specific energetic tools to be able to fulfill the intentions in each area!

Otherwise we’re always honored to work with people in session to help them find their own highest path and help awaken their own abilities in healing, seeing, and connecting to the higher realms. We also welcome people to join us for our sacred travel to sites around the world.  We are currently leading a very special trip to Peru this coming June 2014 to work with the indigenous shaman and visit sacred sites.

You speak of four core elements that embody becoming the New Human. Can you break down and explain the idea behind each section for us?

 

16

The four components are Calm Down, Let the Past Go, Enlighten Yourself and Create Abundance.  We feel that each of these aspects are the keys to a soulful life.

Calming Down:  It is certainly important to slow down, empty ourselves, and connect to our centers. This area provides information, meditation techniques, and other ways to ground oneself and connect deeply to our core. From this point, all becomes possible.

Let the Past Go:  We learned that it’s very hard to move forward in life if you are still carrying a lot of heavy energy from the past.  We all go through experiences in our lives where we’re meant to learn lessons. It’s important to keep the lessons, but let go of the old stories of how we got them. This section provides tools and techniques to let the past go so that people can be freer to go in a higher direction.

Enlighten Yourself:  This is all about raising our consciousness and vibration. Simply put, there are many different ways to approach our Soul’s journey and the path we take. There are many practices, beliefs, and traditions. The purpose is to respond to experiences from a place of love while also powerfully co-creating life in alignment with your highest path.

21

Create Abundance:  We are each Creators at our core. We can, absolutely, create the life we dream on all levels. This section explores ways to be a more empowered Creator.

How can holding onto the past hinder people in their health, well-being and in their daily lives?

When we hold on to the past we’re not truly free to create in the present moment. We place the experience of our past into the potential of our future, leading us to repeat the same patterns and life lessons until we heal them. What that means is that instead of allowing a moment to be what it is, we bring a wealth of old emotions, hurt, anger, sadness, or regret that creates disharmony.  This disharmony, over time, can often manifest as physical health problems which is why when someone has a repeating health issue, it’s generally best to look at it from the level of the energetic, in addition to treating the actual physical condition.

Calming down and Letting go of the Past are especially difficult in todays fast paced lifestyle. What changes can someone make in their personal lives to help them to achieve these goals?

Succinctly, to calm down someone could be more aware of their breathing and breath more deeply into their belly. Prevention is always the best medicine — even 5 minutes each morning standing on the earth in bare feet (when possible) and taking deep breaths into your core can help tremendously. Over a few weeks, this becomes a grounding ritual for the day you can always come back to.  During the day even five seconds – five long seconds – of closing your eyes, breathing, and imagining energy running up and down your divine line (center column in front of your spine) can do wonders to bring you back to your center point.

For Letting the Past Go, we suggest a daily practice of clearing your personal energy field.  This can be done in numerous ways. Also upon going to bed, take one full minute to make a mental note of everything you were grateful for from that day. Building gratitude helps you stay focused on what is working, not what isn’t.

 

Before beginning your own personal journeys to becoming New Humans, you both had successful careers as entrepreneurs. What were the catalysts for your spiritual awakenings?

Eden: For me, the catalyst was hitting rock bottom following a variety of challenges that came all around the same time — a crumbling marriage, a massive car accident, and losing a company I was co-founder and CEO of. I also had issues from my childhood and teenage years I was still holding on to that needed healing. I was miserable and having a mid-life crisis, unsure of who I was or how to be happy. Of course everything happens for a reason, and it made me seek out energy healers for deeper work. Within 6 months I found myself in the Amazon jungle with local indigenous shamans. Those two weeks changed my life; I came home, separated from my husband the next day, moved out 4 weeks later to a new city, and completely started a new life with a new outlook.

John: For me it was a deep underlying sense of not being totally fulfilled. Material success certainly does not equal soul fulfillment. Before someone starts a true spiritual exploration, we often just do what people expect us to do. When we start asking ourselves the questions that don’t have easy answers, and we commit ourselves to finding them, then awakenings can occur.

What was it that you realized was wrong with your old ways of living and how easy was it to adapt to a new lifestyle? 

Eden:  My major shift first happened during my work in the Amazon jungle. I had radical awakenings and insights into who I really was, what my purpose was here, and worked through years – and lifetimes – of pain that needed to heal. I saw where I held on to pain and suffering, where I had continually allowed people to cross my boundaries and hurt me, and how I had stopped listening to my heart. It wasn’t that the old ways were wrong so much as not in alignment with what I was here for and what I was truly capable of.  I came back transformed, but also got thrown in to massive changes as a result.  But thankfully, things began happening effortlessly, I was supported during my entire journey in more ways I ever could have imagined.  The more I trusted the shifts, the more beautiful they became.

How dramatically have your lives changed?

Eden: Completely!  I used to be highly stressed working 12 to 14 hour days, striving for material things (nice home, nice car, nice clothes, nice shoes), being in a relationship with someone who always put me down and was emotionally abusive, and didn’t honor me (or the feminine) or things that were important to me.  I had no voice, never spoke my truth, and my heart always hurt.  I thought being with a “soul mate” and being able to live a life of travel and freedom and spirituality was for other people. I was resigned.  Yet after my awakening, I met my twin flame who I’m completely in alignment with on all four levels – emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually – and is someone who deeply honors the feminine and my soul path.  We live in a beautiful home near the ocean in a city I had always dreamed of living in (but never thought possible), and I get to work from home, on projects I love and being creative. I do healing sessions with clients, being in service to other’s soul path.  We also travel the world as often as we can leading sacred ceremonies and connecting with sacred sites. And this year, we also welcomed in our baby daughter.  My life is so radically different than before, but it’s absolutely perfect and a reflection of who I truly am.  All of my dreams came true once I trusted.

John:  One of the biggest changes in my life is my relationship to my work. My personal path has fueled the way that I’m meant to be of service to others. This evolution was essential. If I’m going to help others find and then step powerfully onto their highest path, then I’d better be on mine. Also, there’s just a deeper sense of satisfaction now that I’ve aligned my life purpose with my soul’s purpose. 

What advice would you give to someone who has realized they are not on their Right Path and are yearning for more from life but are not quite sure what direction to take next?

We hear this a lot.  As humanity is being pulled forward into stronger energies of love and unity consciousness, people everywhere are yearning to live their soul’s purpose and a path that’s truly in alignment with who they are. Many people can’t just live life on auto-pilot anymore, but they may feel stuck on what to do.  The hard part is we rarely see the big picture or have any idea where our new life may take us.  So our best advice is simple:  listen to your heart.  Find time in stillness and ask yourself what it is you truly desire. Don’t feel stuck!  You ARE the creator of your life and you are more powerful than you can imagine.

The trick is, you need to become still enough to truly listen to your heart and make a choice to awaken. Once you set your intentions – truly in your heart – to follow your highest soul’s path, simply ask your Guides or Angels or the Universe (or whomever you feel is there to support you) in helping bring this to you.  Trust it can and will happen and be open to the signs, teachers, lessons, and messages that get put in your path. Trust the process of opening; it will bring you everything you need.

One other way to get in touch in a deeper way is to journal. Try to see if you can “just have a conversation with your mind” and open up to something greater that wants to flow through you. It’s in that “something greater” that you’ll experience the clues to your highest path.

Can We Expect Peace Between Nations When Our Most Basic Relationships Fail?

Published

on

To say that I’m tired of hearing about politics is an understatement. I’ve pondered wearing earplugs to muffle the pundits. I’ve considered using Google glasses to program “Trump” and “Democrats” and “Republicans” out of my visual spectrum.

Perhaps there’s one issue that must come before politics…

It’s marriage.

Our romantic relationships are the basic unit of civilization. Men and women have children and build families, which make up neighbourhoods, communities, cities, states, and nations. Basic logic, right?

And it takes civilized people to make a civilization. So how can we expect to have peaceful nations when our most basic relationships are downright crude? We have missions to Mars and particle colliders that are rumoured to open portals to new dimensions. But, when it comes to love… we’re dragging our knuckles on a flat Earth.

Our version of love is a cycle of insecurity

We can’t stand to be alone. But rather than learning to love our lives and find meaning alone, we place impossible standards for fulfillment on our lovers. We get a little security, and a lot of pleasure. But when the chemicals wear off, we’re left with the truth: We don’t know anything about our lovers.

And when we do get to know each other, we hate what we find. Then we split. But each split tears a thread in the fabric of our society, because family is our foundation.

We can thrust ourselves into heady political conversations, and pretend that our red (or blue) rage is going to build a better world. But those political solutions aren’t addressing the root cause of our pain. We just need to fix how we love first.

Foundations of love

Foundations are, well, foundational to success. So we pave them for our houses, we practice scales before learning a difficult piece of music, and we learn the fundamentals of math before going on to algebra and calculus. We know that we need a strong foundation for successful relationships, too. But who actually takes the time to build one?

Loving responsibly is hard. It seems outdated or religiously nonsensical by today’s standards (getting to know someone inside and out before you take them to bed?), but if you don’t have a strong foundation, you’ve got a house of cards. Just like every one of my previous relationships.

From age 12 I trained myself to objectify women by watching porn. And until my early twenties, I was more concerned about my next sexual fix than my career. I hooked up with girlfriends not because I wanted to love them with all my heart, but because they were my key to security and satisfaction — which I got, for a time. But the net result was an increasingly lonely, unfulfilled, and depressed version of me.

By the end of my last relationship, I seriously considered taking my own life. What was I doing wrong? After picking up reflective habits like journaling and meditation, I figured it out.

I wasn’t fulfilled alone. I was bored alone. And I was unsuccessful alone. But in my mind, relationships were magical things that would wash all the bad stuff away and make me happy — kind of like a drug. In reality, for each desire that I lacked on my own, like joy, or security, I was strangling my relationships with conditions.

I’d “love” a girl until I was no longer joyful with her, or until she bored me. Then, for each condition that she failed to meet — no one can be perfect 100% of the time — I withdrew my love from her, bit by bit. The withdrawals happened on her side, too.

By the end of my relationships, whether they were six-month flings or two-year engagements, the end was predictably uncivil. We abused each other with our language. We cheated on each other, and betrayed each other’s trust. We blamed each other on and on for what the other had failed to do. Almost sounds like our relationships with other countries…

But the real failure was in choosing each other as romantic partners. It was in pursuing love without getting to know each other’s values and character traits first — before we built a foundation. We gambled on placing our faith in each other. And, like most people, we lost. Big time.

Rather than castrating myself, or settling for an endless string of heartaches — somebody shoot me — I worked on the foundation of my next relationship. I worked on me.

I learned to lean into my insecurity

Instead of running for another girl when I got lonely, I leaned into my insecurity and learned more about me. I developed a prayer life and a relationship with God. And I stuck to my new habits of journaling and meditation.

Through mindfulness, I channeled my sexual desire into my goals and self improvement. I felt the urge to ogle gorgeous women, of course, and at 27, their beauty moves me now more than ever. But I trained myself to move in a positive direction, to express healthy emotions at a woman’s beauty — like gratitude, inspiration, and awe — instead of imagining how she could please me.

Then I took it a step further.

I disciplined myself to think of a woman’s future husband. Would he respect me for the way I was thinking about her? And then I’d think of my future wife. If I couldn’t expect myself to view other wives with dignity and respect, how could I expect that of other men in looking at mine?

In my new way of thinking, I shed my selfish ways and became a man — and a neighbour, and a lover. A year into the habit I became independent for the first time in my life. I discovered my writing career and found success in it. And I became a role model for other people.

My dramatic life change happened because I figured out how to harness my sexual desire in an uplifting way. And in learning how to love civilly, I became a functioning part of civilization. *But people still call me out for not voting…

How you can love civilly

The way we think about each other determines how we act: civil, or uncivil. So you’ve got to train yourself to think respectful and positive thoughts — especially when it comes to beautiful men and women.

No matter how much we hope, the magical love chemicals can’t erase reality: We either love each other with respect, or we don’t. And if we don’t, our relationships will degrade, and our families will degrade. And as our broken relationships pick up steam down the social gradient, our communities degrade, and our cities degrade. And if the cycle of uncivil romance continues, states and nations will degrade as well. It’s basic logic.

So, you can talk about what these morons in office are doing to feel important and keep you occupied… or you can do something that actually makes a difference. You can learn to love like a human-fucking-being. Pardon my crude language.

Learn to love for the long term. Build faith in yourself. Quit porn and casual sex. Become so joyful and inspired by your own life that you couldn’t imagine expecting anyone else to be responsible for your happiness. Channel your sexual desire into your highest self. Use those urges to remind yourself of the things you haven’t done yet to become the person you want to be. Direct that energy into a future you would admire, and a person you’d be proud of.

And when you’ve changed the way you live and think, you’ll change the way you love. You’ll love civilly.

By your example, you’ll inspire others to take the harder path and to love civilly themselves. And when enough people do that… I won’t ever have to hear another political pundit for as long as I shall live. And I’ll thank you.

Are You Sure You Want To Cancel 2020?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Many people have been wanting to cancel 2020 given all of the challenges that have arisen this year, but are these challenges not what we need to wake up?

  • Reflect On:

    Is humanity living in a way we are truly capable of? Are we really going to change and create a world where we can thrive if we all remain in 'normal' with our heads down just getting by? Perhaps we need a shake up!

A massive evolution in the way we think and live is long overdue, and now the environment is perfectly set for it to happen. Many call this process ‘raising collective consciousness.’ It’s no secret, 2020 has been a intense year, and you may have noticed that many are creating memes calling for the cancellation of 2020. This comes from the idea of ‘cancel culture’ which is an ideology whereby anything we don’t like, even if it’s only some of us, has to be shamed into cancellation as opposed to dealing with what it truly says about us and why we’re triggered by it. But more on this in a moment.

Deep down I imagine you feel it. What we are doing on a day-to-day basis in our lives feels limiting and it feels like we are capable of much more. This feeling comes from an innate desire within the deepest aspect of who we are, our soul, to continually evolve and expand as a being. It’s almost as if we begin to feel uncomfortable when we become stagnant and stop evolving or growing.

Right now, our current way of living societally and our current mass unconsciousness is causing us to push away that deep desire. We do this because we have become so identified with thought, that if a desire to shift or change comes up, and we cannot rationalize nor see how we can change, and in turn, we push that desire away to hold onto what we have grown comfortable with.

Thus, intensity and chaos have ensued in our world in an attempt to wake us up. Perhaps it’s time to embrace this desire for change. Do we really want our world to simply go back to normal? Was normal truly allowing us to thrive?

Ridding 2020?

A lot of people have been sharing the idea that we want to get rid of or cancel 2020 because it has been such a ‘bad year.’ I understand what train of thought can lead here, and I understand what way of being can lead here, but regardless, I feel it’s an important time to embrace what’s going on and ask big questions about what we’re doing as a collective – living life so disconnected from anything that deeply resonates with us. What we call ‘chaos’ has always been a potent tool for evolution, only, we often get in the way of that evolution by remaining asleep to what’s really going on around us, and continually pushing away that knowing that we can create meaningful change.

Most of what is rising to the surface right now, in terms of truths regarding current events, are all realities that people have been telling others about for years – and yet most of us just went on our merry way, heads down, living life as if none of it was happening. For example, elite child sex trafficking is one collective trauma being faced right now by many, and every day I hear of more and more people facing this reality, unsure of what to do about it as they feel despair. I cannot blame anyone for wanting to hide from this information. Life can be tough and very demanding simply to get by, so questioning our reality and why it is the way it is may not be at the top of our priority list. It may feel easier to just go on with our lives as if it’s not real, continually voting, putting these ‘corrupt’ individuals in power and accepting life as it is.

But if life is providing experiences that give us a chance to evolve beyond this old paradigm, is it perhaps time we listen? Can we truly just keep our heads down as we watch our collective uncomfort rise and mental health decline as our world no longer resonates with our being?

Just because the truth makes us uncomfortable, doesn’t mean we don’t need to address it, it just means we are avoiding it, and if we continue to choose not to look, it will ‘blow up in our face’ – just as it is right now.

May years ago people would ask me ‘Joe, do you think people will one day know about all that is going on behind the scenes?’ I said yes, there are collective truths and traumas people will HAVE to face, there is no avoiding it. This is why so many people are doing their inner work and becoming helpful members of the global community who will be able to help others through their emotional upheavals when more of this truth continues to come out, just like it is right now.

The human race has been oppressed for centuries. At the core, is the suppression of human consciousness. The less we know who we truly are and what we are truly capable of, the more we can be coddled and controlled into living lives that serve a few. The reality of this is coming to the surface.

So should we cancel 2020? Or embrace what it’s trying to bring up on a deeper level, and choose to focus on inner work, personal transformation ad collective transformation? This, as opposed to mentally and emotionally running around trying to say why everything is wrong and bad, will this truly bring about meaningful change?

We’re All Playing Roles

With that said, instead of looking at who the good guys are and who the bad guys are, I challenge others to think of it in terms of roles. What role are people playing for one another that allows us to question what’s going on, learn a lesson, and change? Do you want the world as it is today to continue in this manner? Do you feel we are capable of harmony and thrivability? What do you want the world to look like?

Viewing it in this manner will bring us to solutions as opposed to arguing about what the problems are from our political point of view. Staying within the paradigm of our current world, where we create sides, argue, and remain in a political landscape, will always create more separation and will limit our potential, won’t it? It’s time for a new perspective, a new way of looking at things, and in order for that to happen we must come to terms with what not paying attention has created in our reality.

When we live in this manner, are we living life fully? Or are we just getting by? Are we caught up in the future or the past, trying to live in those states? Or are we fully living now? Are we ready to move from a state of being where we are identified with our thoughts and ego constantly, and move to a state where we are truly who we are, our awareness, living fully?

This is what this transition is about. This is what 2020 is helping to bring forth: the necessary events and revelations that push us deeply to question our lives and society. Start dreaming again, start thinking outside the box. Whatever world you choose to plug into is the one we will actively create. If you feel humanity is capable of something different, or better, beyond just the changing of a president, then now is the time to truly put your intention and action into that.

It’s a potent time for change. Perhaps we don’t want to wish normal back into existence?

Full Moon In Aquarius: Erratic Progression

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Aquarius on August 3rd/4th, it will appear the fullest on night of the 2nd in Western North America. This is the peak of the Lunar cycle that began with a New Moon in Cancer on July 20th/21st, as some of the themes mentioned in that article are still in effect.

The energies of a Full Moon are strongest in the days surrounding it yet its astrological configurations also play a part over the following two weeks. You may start to see its effects slowly build up after the New Moon prior to it.

Full Moons are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Aquarius and the Sun in Leo. It can play out as either a conflict, an integration, or some sort of dynamic playing out between the energies of both signs. The Moon reflects the expression of feeling and emotion while the Sun reflects the expression of ego and conscious self.

We may feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Aquarius side and others expressing the Leo side. In some cases, Full Moons can also reflect/trigger some sort of change or release.

Full Moon In Aquarius Opposite Sun In Leo

We have been in Leo season since July 22nd and will continue until August 22nd/23rd. This is the sign of self-expression, creativity, love, affection, children, courage, vitality, passion, leadership, generosity, and playfulness. Ruled by the Sun, it is also about shining in our power and being in alignment with what really lights us up and gets us excited.

The negative expressions of Leo can be egotistical, self-absorbed, authoritarian, dramatic, stubborn, jealous, and hot-tempered.  As it is associated with seeking praise and attention, it can be demanding of respect and be boisterous without considering or caring about how others respond to that.

The Full Moon highlights and brings the energies of the opposing sign of Aquarius into this Leo backdrop. This is the sign of friends, networks, social dynamics, the group, the team, humanity, and being in the best interest of the collective. Associated with Uranus, it can be unconventional, idealistic, innovative, progressive, original, inventive, technological, reforming, and even revolutionary.

Negatively, Aquarius can be overly detached, aloof, unemotional, and very invested in the mind at the expense of the heart. Traditionally ruled by Saturn, it can also be unyielding when it comes to the ideas and perspectives that it has already decided on.

Both Leo and Aquarius have some similarities. They are ‘Fixed’ signs and therefore can both be determined yet stubborn. They are also both associated with originality and authenticity. In Aquarius, this comes from its unconventional and innovative Uranian attributes while in Leo it comes from being inspired by its Solar heart centred self-expression.

Full Moon Square Uranus, Sextile Chiron

The Sun and Moon are in a T-square aspect with Uranus bringing its energy strongly into the equation. This planet is associated with Aquarius and viewed as a modern ruler of this sign, therefore it emphasizes some of the Aquarian themes mentioned above.

This can also reflect an energy that is disruptive, unpredictable, erratic, nonconforming, and rebellious. It can be hard to focus and more prone to sudden changes, accidents, loss, or separations. However, it can also reflect liberation, breakthroughs, excitement, and is a good time to shake things up and try new approaches to things.

This Full Moon is in a supportive sextile with Chiron which shares unorthodox and innovative qualities with Uranus. Chiron is also about bringing healing and wholeness to a situation and is associated with personal growth. It brings a potential for integration, learning, problem solving, finding solutions, purpose, and the elevation of consciousness.

Full Moon Sextile Mars, Squaring Jupiter & Pluto During Pre-Retrograde Shadow

The Sun-Moon opposition is in a harmonious aspect with Mars which can bring an active, asserting, energetic, sexual, or even a competitive or fighting energy. Mars is also in its own sign of Aries as it slows down to go retrograde on September 9th/10th. We will be experiencing a period of adjustments over the coming months in how we apply Mars in certain areas of our lives depending on our personal birth charts. Some of the things that are happening this month, leading up to it, will contribute to that process.

At the time of this Full Moon, Mars is also in a tight square with Jupiter which has been building up in the days prior. It also moves towards a square with Pluto over the following two weeks. We may overextend ourselves during this time or do things in an excessive, overconfident, compulsive or obsessive way.

Conflicts around beliefs, perspectives, hidden matters, or abuse can also arise. As we get closer to mid-August the energy becomes more intense with an increased potential of power struggles. This aspect can trigger passion and is good for strategic actions. All of these factors mentioned in this section are cranking up Mars energy overall. I will be writing a separate article on the upcoming retrograde as we get closer to it, join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Mercury & Venus In Hard Aspects With Saturn, Venus Conjunct North Node

Mercury is in a tight opposition with Saturn. This can reflect thoughts or conversations that are cautious, hesitant, pessimistic, or limiting. We may experience delays or obstacles around commuting or communications with others.  The need to be realistic around certain issues may also come up.

Like Mercury, Venus has social qualities and is also in a hard aspect with Saturn, this one being a frustrating quincunx. It can be hard to integrate or juggle Saturnian areas of responsibilities, commitments, boundaries, discipline, and structures with Venus areas of friendships, love, pleasures, sensuality, values, money, attraction, or other things that are aesthetic related. We may need to be extra adaptable or make adjustments.

Venus is also moving towards a conjunction with the Lunar North Node in Gemini in the days following this Full Moon. New relations, or developments around past relations, could have a fated quality that can bring growth and help us to move forward in a better or constructive way.  Our perception or approach to Venus ruled areas (mentioned in above paragraph) may evolve in a helpful manner.

Things To Consider

In what areas of your life should you try new approaches? What can you do to shake things up? What are some potential solutions for issues you are facing? How can you use your creativity in an innovative way? What are your relations with others pushing you towards? How can you be more of a team player? How can you better balance needs of self with the needs of the group?   What parts of your life are calling for originality and authenticity?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime over the two weeks following when it is waning. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on August 3rd at 3:59pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
