This New Moon is asking us to embrace our shadow self. It is the parts of us that many wish to discard and be rid of. But this part of us holds a lot of power. It depends on how you view it and how you use it. Reject it and you will suffer greatly. Resist it and it will persist. Acknowledge and accept it, and you will evolve exponentially.
We want to be of service to others, want to help and lead them down a path of love and healing. As these gifts are developing we must be mindful of our position. By offering unsolicited advice we are likely unintentionally hurting the person, rather than serving them.
Intense energy has been building up for some time now, especially with five planets in retrograde. We are seeing and feeling it everyday, all around us. We are all directly and indirectly affected by it. This vibration of intense energetic waves causes us to think and translate thoughts differently, rethink our life journey and career path, reflect on our spiritual self, and reassess our need for control and transformation.
