It’s not that I don’t understand the fight. I get it. I have fought it. I continue to fight it.
I am pissed because in the fight to have equal access to human dignity, our fore-mothers forgot to stress that sometimes self-respect means saying, "it is okay to not want it all." Especially when "having it all" means living up to the standards of someone else's dream.
Usually the Libra Full Moon has us thinking about harmony, but today's full lunar eclipse exposes the myth of work - life balance.
Are you tired of comparing yourself to others? Are you feeling like you don't stack up to the expectation. Women especially who have bought into the notion that we must strive to have it all are discovering that the myth of Life Balance creates dis-ease.
Feeling pressured to keep up with the Joneses? Feeling like your boss wants you to accomplish more, even though he's never asked? Feeling like, no matter what you do, it just isn't good enough? Looking for the balance in everything? Yep...that's the Libra full moon amplified by the full lunar eclipse.
The current moon energetic forces is forcing us to deal with our personal shortcomings, and the dark side of the eclipse is the comparison of self to others--but what we can't see is that those who are living the most amazingly seeming kick-ass life may, in fact, be very miserable behind the facade.
Many are being called to examine shortcomings. We might feel an insanely intense critical streak during this alignment. The secret to surviving this kind of pressure is to lean into it, using it to zero in on these little "comparison" habits that keep you from achieving YOUR dream! a
This full lunar eclipse energy is the STORM before the CALM--that is, it is pushing us to clean up our energies--to take responsibility for the energy we bring to the world and to FINALLY accept who we really are!

The only person you should ever compare yourself to is YOU and even THAT is a fallacy, because you're not the same person you were yesterday!
So instead of feeling pressured to write the great American Novel, or to paint the next masterpiece or lose twenty pounds because you want to be like the creative, beautiful sparkly people around you--USE THE FORCE!
This pressure to be more, do more, have more gets in the way of your authenticity. And um, not to add any more pressure, but the truth is you can only save the world by being uniquely you!
The next two weeks may feel a bit like a sailing through choppy waters, and if this is true for you, look at it as not something to be feared, but more of a course correction.
If there is anything in your life that has caused you to be anything less than authentic, now is the time to adjust the sails and let the energy push you into your TRUTH!
While everyone around the world seems to be freaking out about the intensity of today's strong energetic, I believe it is more important to not fear it but to RIDE it--and GET PISSED OFF!
Come to the truth, YOUR TRUTH, and do something! This is a great opportunity to deal your this stuff now, because in two weeks, we will have yet another lunar eclipse at the New Taurus Moon--and with that a sexier, freer, more upbeat vibe will set in. Just in time to celebrate BELTANE!!!
