Spark of Life.

The past weeks since the New Moon in Virgo have been heavy for many of us. In my personal surroundings, in my community of Las Vegas as well as in other parts of the world wounds have been opened and heavy feelings have surfaced.

Since this Moon cycle is all about Healing our Wounds (see blog post here), the wounds had to be opened and felt deeply first in order to be healed. 

The massacre of Las Vegas has opened wounds, literally. Many souls arrived home early. It is a sad and tragic event. I am currently in Germany visiting my family, and hearing this in the news shook me. My home town: now the city of the biggest massacre in US history! But one beautiful thing came out of this darkness... LOVE and UNITY. 

This event has proven that the community in Las Vegas is strong. That for every crazy mind who thinks it needs to kill there are thousands of others who openly share their love and service. It is beautiful to know that we can all count on each other. 

This Full Moon in Aries is about a release of the lower energies of Aries and a celebration of the higher energies of Aries.

Aries' lower energies are war, hatred, violence, aggression. Questions arise, if military guns are necessary to be available for purchase to psychos (the answer is rather simple in my opinion). Things that divide us are meant to be released during this Full Moon. 

Reflect on what divides us, how do we feel different to others, how do we feel competition, or hatred, or fear that others are better, more advanced, more spiritual, more successful, or whatsoever. Reflect on that and then see why you are feeling that way. What fear lies behind it?

Realize that everything you judge others for, are shadows within you, wounds within you, wanting to be healed. It is not about changing others, its about releasing the need for others to change. Letting go of the need to be in control of other people's behaviors... The only thing we're in control of are our actions and reactions. Let's make them inspiring!

And that's what this Full Moon in Aries asks us to do: 

To be the spark of life. To inspire. To awaken. To motivate. To lead. To stand up. To get going. To encourage. To start.

Aries' energy is deeply connected with anger.

If you have been following my healing journey of TMJ that I started this Virgo New Moon, you might have read that the metaphysical cause of TMJ (jaw clenching) is holding back, especially anger. 

Last night, I had a dream that I let out my anger. I was angry. I yelled, I spoke my truth. And damn, did it feel good!! I thought in my dream how good it feels to let it out. I have built up anger within me without even consciously knowing, because I don't want to hurt others but I also realize now, not speaking my truth, is not only hurting others but also myself. 

Anger is a valuable emotion. Like a weapon it can be used to start a fight, or it can be used to defend oneself and others. It is our choice to direct the anger to where we feel it is needed. 

This Full Moon asks us to consciously direct our anger, to provoke change, to defend ourselves and others, to protect our community, to start a new way of life.

 Exercise: Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Imagine healing fire burning within your whole body, burning away anything that no longer serves you. Burning away cords that attach you to past events or people that are draining you (burning bridges so-to-speak). Feel the fire within you until you feel renewed and ready to rise like a phoenix out of the ashes of your old self.
