I decided to do this post on the back half of the Full Moon in Libra because for many of you it didn't hit until the wee hours of this morning. It feels as though we've gotten a Full Moon bonus day. It gives us a little more time to review our goals, tap in to our intuition and participate in any rituals we may have be it tea, meditation or just gathering with others.
I know things have felt a little funny or even off kilter. With so many planets is retrograde (one of them being Mercury. Everyones favorite retrograde.) there is a push pull energy to this moon. The square that is happening in the sky is pushing us into a bit of a stressful state. We seems to be stuck in limbo between this crisis/opportunity mentality. Last months Aries energy wanted to push us forward but the planets are insisting we take a step back and continue to review larger life lessons before we bloom into this Pink Moon.
The Pink Moon as well as Libra are associated with the heart chakra. I believe that is also why things are feeling extra tender, confusing and vulnerable. The heart chakra can be a hard one for us to open in our world.
Today try to stay in feeling. Surround yourself with the feminine energy. Ground down into your heart space and move slowly. Don't get caught up in the Air sign that is Libra because it can drag you into the commotion of the obsessive mind (monkey mind!)
On a practical level here is some grounding advise I gave a friend: Take a relaxing bath with Epsom salt. While in the bath sit quietly for 5-11 min inhaling 'I AM' and exhaling 'GROUNDED'. This puts you safely in your Root Chakra. Whenever you're feeling airy and a bit out of sorts it can be such an easy practice even if you just do the breath. Oh and of course walk barefoot as much as possible.
