Wholeness

Wholeness. What does that mean for you?   I have been thinking about wholeness lately since a client told me that when they are with me they feel whole.   I was flattered, of course. And I do want to help my clients to a feeling of wholeness. But what I really, really want is for them to feel whole all on their own. If I can help them to that point that’s fabulous. But the real wholeness comes from within. So, I thought I would explore what wholeness means for me.   And here are my thoughts   I feel complete within myself I no longer beat myself up about everything I no longer seek validation from all around me I have made friends with the less shiny bits of my personality and know that it’s perfect to be imperfect I now CHOOSE to be with and love my significant relationships rather than NEED them I do what I love and love what I do I no longer try to be something I’m not I know it’s okay that I like staying home and no longer think I ‘should’ join groups I don’t want to. The ‘shoulds’ - yeah they rarely exist any more. I like spending time with me I no longer hide me And I also accept that I feel all and do all these things only most of the time and that even in my wholeness I am imperfect.   So, again, tell me. What does wholeness mean for...

Before I talk about some of the other energies that make this a particularly potent full moon let me talk about Libra. Libra is the sign of balance, justice, relationships, art and social justice. It is no coincidence that scales are the symbol for many of the High Courts. In its shadow Libra can also have a tendency to seek peace at any price (to itself), be indecisive and have difficulty saying no. The greatest of balancing acts, and one that Libra teaches us, is the balancing act between self and others Libra is an air sign and air signs have an agile mind and are good communicators who can emphasize the intellect above all else. Often an appearance of sweetness and that of a light breeze but with the power of a gale force wind behind it. It’s all about movement and Libras evolutionary path is to develop the self through encounters with others and, thereby learning to balance the need for peace with the talent for challenging unjust situations rather than erring on one side or the other. The Full Moon is always an opposition to the Sun and the Sun is currently in Aries which is Warrior energy. Direct, energizing and pioneering. In the shadow it can be aggressive, volatile and reactionary. Now Libra full moon is ALWAYS opposite the Aries sun but what makes this Full Moon so powerful is that Mars, the ruling planet of Aries, is also in opposition....
