The new full moon is in Scorpio – or so that’s what I’ve read. Apparently, this means it’s a time for change. How or why that means such a thing, I’m not entirely sure. I’m not an astrology expert. But I’m glad that I learned this because I’m ready for change.
What’s funny is I could feel this time of change approaching in my life before even reading about this full moon in Scorpio. After I returned from a trip to Florida at the end of March, I returned to a new reality – a new me, or that’s what it felt like.
I went out of town at the beginning of March with certain goals and then returned at the end with different ones. But what was most difficult was putting those new goals into words and plans. I struggled for weeks and called on many a friend for help sorting my thoughts.
Finally, I sorted out my priorities (thanks, Van!) and I came up with four new focuses or goals:
1. I want my novel published and I will see that it happens no matter what.
2. I want to travel. I just want to write books and travel for my job. That sounds like an utterly divine life.
3. I want to make more money. I’ve been content what I am making as I’m able to afford a decent lifestyle, but “contentness” is still a financial struggle for me at times. I am 27 with good skills and talent. I deserve to make more.
4. I want more down time to enjoy life on a daily basis. Less working 12 hours a day during the week and more living.
Since March, I’ve been realigning my work and daily habits to fit these new goals. It’s been slow moving but within the last few weeks, things have been suddenly changing. I can feel my “life car” switching gears, turning toward a new path, and stepping on the pedal. Things are changing.
It hasn’t come without it’s struggles, these new changes in my life. I’ve had to put less time to projects I enjoyed and push myself in other ways that I’m not normally used to. I’ve been working a little extra (yes, I know what I said in goal number 4) to hopefully adjust things now for a soon-to-be-enjoyed more relaxed, more living type of future.
Throughout this entire experience, I’ve learned a lot. For one, it seems my goals have changed in major ways at least once every year. I don’t think this is abnormal. I think this is a means of me trying out my new goals, taking time to reevaluate those previous goals, learn from my mistakes, and hone in on the direction that I am meant to go. It’s working and that makes me happy.
So as Scorpio enters this new moon cycle, I encourage you all to be proactive in your goal planning and reevaulating. But more importantly, I would like you to ask the universe to help you toward your new goals. You may not believe in astrology of any sort but I know you have the ability to believe so redirect your energy to you and your dreams. When you’re falling asleep, waking up, or taking a break throughout the day, ask the Universe, God, Allah, Buddha, angels, devils, yourself, your own divinity, your ancestors, or whatever you believe in to help shift your world in the right direction.
Do this every day and then go out and give the world a little nudge by making changes and making moves. Why not? What do you have to lose?
