Satisfaction Through Self-Reliance

When we invest ourselves into a practice of reflection or meditation, we can eventually learn how to appreciate the present, and the healing power of letting go. Perhaps this could be something to consider this week; as sensitive vulnerabilities continue to expand with the Full Moon on Tuesday October 27. During the Full Moon, our thoughts and New Moon intentions come to a peak, bringing exposure to what has remained secretive or in the dark. What is necessary and illuminates truth; is released – resulting in endings and finales. And with the Full Moon grinding hard and steadily in determined Taurus, we’ll be more encouraged to finish up with what we’ve been working on in the last few weeks.

The greatest achievement of the human spirit is to live up to one’s opportunities and make the most of one’s resources. Vauvenargues, Marquis

A heavy influence on the Full Moon comes from enterprising Saturn, as pressure will be applied to the brakes. By slowing down our restless need to ‘hurry up and get things done’, we can actually utilize this quality time for getting more for our money, time and energy. Through quality investment, we can learn how to become tolerant and wise, but also a little self-indulgent. Enjoy the scenic route this week, and appreciate what you experience along with way!
