Exhale a long deep sigh of relief as we are finally awash in the new. Whew! Seemed a long time coming but notice those lighter energies! Do you feel lighter, fresher, ready to welcome the new however it looks in your life? Today’s new moon in Aquarius coincides with the start of the Chinese New Year of the Wood horse ; plus tomorrow Venus, the planet of love and beauty, begins going direct after weeks of being retrograde. New, new and new!
A blessed welcome after what has been (for many in this hemisphere) a brutal spell of frozen endurance. Like being frozen in ice, restrictions, tightness and goo seemed to thwart any attempts to move forward for the past several weeks. That is all over now. How about you? How do things in your life feel now? Good? Or chaotic? If you are still feeling frozen by old, outworn patterns, let them go.
Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you lost sight of your inner purpose. You have forgotten that your state of consciousness is primary, all else secondary.
~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose
Are you embracing your freedom? Your unique, wonderful self? Are you joyfully dancing to the tune that is playing just for you? Those quirky, fun Aquarian energies can help you see your big picture in a new light. And the Wooden Horse welcomes you swing your leg up, grab a bit of mane and enjoy the gallop to where you know you have to go. Have any of your significant relationships been morphing? Go with the flow and let the current carry you. Venus will soon be adding her gifts of new love and new beauty to your open hands.
Do try to take time for your version of a sacred ceremony today. Even if it is just a few moments of quiet reflection right here, right now. From the quiet stillness within, listen for your inspiration. You don’t have to struggle to change your life, you really just have to get out of your own way and take a step in a new direction. Stop resisting and be gently carried to a future that is more aligned with who you are deep inside; beyond all those stories that you tell yourself; beyond your past; beyond all of those battles that you fight to bring what you think is best into your life or to hold on to what is best released; beyond any suffering that you may be experiencing due to your resistance to the new. Allow it. Embrace it. Smile. You are always lovingly supported from beyond our physical realm.
If you are already clear on the ‘new’ that surrounds you, take action. Your willingness to act on your Truth will help it bloom to its full glory. If you are not clear from a deep, heart level, wait. Use your sacred ceremony to ask for clarity. After all, you don’t want to be delayed by acting on any subtle distractions that may yet be lingering on your path. Your clarity will come very soon. Trust the message when your heart reveals it.
May this time of new beginnings bring you peace, joy, confidence in your power and connection, and the forward momentum that you have awaited. Enjoy your Being awash in the new.
