As promised ~ tonight’s Full Supermoon/Samhain reading, just for you!
Embrace your courage, your wit and your cleverness! You are more than prepared for the challenges you may face in the future, so there is no need to feel afraid. Trust in your ability to communicate effectively, and don’t be afraid to ask for (and actively seek out) that which you most desire. This is a time for action, and an excellent opportunity to resolve conflicts and obstacles from your past, laying to rest any relationships, situations or habits that are not serving your positive growth. Cut the cords of attachment to the parts of your past that are no longer feeding your mind, body or spirit, and practice forgiveness as often as possible – you may wish to seek professional counseling to help you work through issues that are particularly difficult for you to overcome. Doing so is not a sign of weakness; on the contrary, reaching out for support is an act of great strength, maturity and self-care.
Release your need to control the outcome of any given situation. There is a season for everything, and resistance to these natural rhythms and cycles can cause stress and anxiety, and will attract feelings of disappointment when things don’t turn out as expected. Learn to go with the flow, be flexible and enjoy each moment and its blessings. Accept that you are not perfect, and that you will not always be at the top of the Wheel of Fortune, basking in success. There will be periods of time when you need to welcome a state of dormancy or stasis in order to learn, reflect, prepare and plan for the future. Additionally, you must understand that there is an element of risk involved with any opportunity. Weigh your options, and be responsible with your decisions, of course, but without the willingness to take a risk, nothing will ever change. So let go of your masks and your shields, and be vulnerable ~ you may just surprise yourself.
Your greatest fear is the fear of your own power and potential. Your heart-felt passions are intense, and your ambitions may seem too great to achieve. Some of you may find ways to distract yourself from this fear, through unhealthy habits, relationships, jobs or excuses. Others may simply play it small, keeping their skills and talents hidden, downplaying them in front of friends and family. Let me tell you, in no uncertain terms, that the world is craving your one-of-a-kind abilities. You see the world in a unique way, and you deserve to express yourself through your craft, whatever it may be. It is high time that you begin to work your own flavor of magic, and give yourself permission to be powerful and free from fear. Profound emotional healing is inevitable when you open these floodgates. Detach from the need for approval – your work will not resonate with each and every person. Do not take this personally, or feel the need to change in order to fit in. The right people are already seeking your light, so don’t dim that beacon to avoid judgement from the wrong ones.
In the past, you may have relied upon others for support (financially or emotionally), and could have become somewhat co-dependent. Or perhaps you found yourself always giving to others with little to no reciprocity. In either case, you have the ability to break free from that unhealthy cycle. Of course, it is always important to maintain a balance between giving and receiving, but finding that balance is often a difficult task. You’re currently learning how to say no, while still maintaining a state of gratitude and love. Setting healthy boundaries for yourself will help you to focus on dedicating time to your passions, overcoming your fear of outside judgement, and communicating your needs. You cannot pour from an empty cup, nor can you take from one ~ the trick is to fill your own cup, and then be selective when giving of yourself. Better yet, instead of filling the cups of others, show them ways in which they can find their own fulfillment. Support each other’s efforts to become independent and confident, and enjoy a stronger, more stable relationship.
So, here’s your overall guidance: This is a time to move forward and make positive, heart-centered changes that will allow you to more openly follow your passions and be true to yourself, your desires and your needs. Communication is key, particularly when asking for help, or saying “no” to others’ demands on your time. Be ready and willing to take calculated risks, and be open to the natural flow of life’s cycles as you take empowered steps to create a happy, fulfilling future.
