The last Full Moon of this decade is here and it’s not coming quietly. The past few weeks have felt challenging for many of us as we navigate through the end of 2019. The harsh vibes are unapologetically preparing us to step into our greater selves in 2020. Remember those uncomfortable growing pains as a kid? That is exactly what’s going on. The year of the Emperor, which we move into in just a few weeks, asks us to show up in our power. To be the fullest, shiniest, most authentic version of ourselves and quite honestly showing up isn’t always easy. In order to do this, we must confront all the reasons why we have chosen not to shine. The reasons we feel small, unimportant, stupid, or overall not worthy of being seen. So if you feel like ALL the baggage of the past decade is resurfacing, you are not alone and it is not for nothing.
We are all standing on this collective edge of greatness and being asked, what do I want to leave behind in this decade? This Full Moon is giving us that deep, introspective push to really answer this question for ourselves. In addition to deep inner work, the Gemini aspect of this moon is also going to have us questioning our external influences, think the people, places, and experiences that shape us. Saddle up for some truth bombs, either coming from your mouth or those close to you. Rather than steer away from the challenging conversations that arise, Gemini asks us to dive in. Say what needs to be said, clear whatever street needs to be cleared, so that when you cross that threshold into 2020 you know where you stand.
I encourage you to find gentleness where you can today. Be kind to you body with gentle movements, good food and kind thoughts. As you approach whatever it is you are processing, ask your soul to take the lead over your brain. Know that all we are feeling right now is preparing us for greatness.
If you are in or near Lawrence, MA today, I will be at Rooted Salon and Apothecary doing card readings from 5-8pm to honor this potent Full Moon.

My hope is through my words, through my own experiences, you will relate to some piece of my story. Some desire that I've shared or insecurity I've admitted to will also belong to you. My words are my truth, but they may also be yours.
