In the Eyes of Others ~ Mars in Libra

“My path is reflected in the eyes of others…if I want to find myself, I need that map.” Paulo Coehlo – Aleph
 
Having my ascendant and natal Mars in the 1st house of Libra, I tend to look for myself in others and believe that the full development of my personality will be through another.
 
 
It’s true. There is an undeniable reliance on others to teach us, love us, hurt us, provoke us, inspire us…so that we may get closer to the source of who we are.
 
We need that map, but let’s read it for what it is: a reflection of the universal soul. Everything we see in others and in the world can be found within us. To find ourselves, we must choose reflections that inspire our highest potential, our most loving self.
 
Finding yourself in a reflection of pain may have a purpose, but it is not a place to stay. It is an inevitable stop along the path, but it is not our destination. The place where we must always be headed is one and one only: truth.
 
Time to move forward with truth. Namaste.

Fight or Flight ~ New Moon Conjunct Natal Moon

~ Inspiration from the new moon in Sagittarius conjunct my natal moon ~

“When you find someone who breaks you open and makes you feel things; you fight for them.”

You fight for the breath of intimacy and discovery. You fight for the moment when fear disappears and there is only love. You fight because your soul is alive in their eyes, on their skin, within their heart. You fight and your passion is undeniable.

The fight or flight response. It’s instinctual. Beyond our instincts are our soul desires. If we can appreciate the beauty found in the silhouette of our emotions, we can embrace and then let go. When we encounter the instinct to fight or take flight, we must look deeper and source will tell us to just let go. Let go and let love.

The Flames of Our Lives

Flame Heart

Accept that connection is not necessarily a forever feeling. Amazing chemistry with someone may last for a night, a summer, a few years or a lifetime.

Accept a person’s entrance into yourlife and be grateful for the light they’ve shared with you. From that light, a spark may form to inspire you, teach you, allow you to grow. But accept that not every flicker turns into a flame. And not every flame turns into a fire.

No matter what burns on the outside, never let your own light ever go out. Your light is your passion. Keep it alive.

A Woman’s Calling

We all have higher callings in our lives…
Higher purposes that aid in our soul evolution here on earth…
How amazing is it for a woman to love and love beyond what is physically known…

Honor his mind, his body, his spirit…
The song of his heart that only she can hear…
Honor the boy and the man…
The map of the past and the future that only she can read…
Honor what has been and what will always be…
The window to his soul that only she can see…

Let her project the love, the way, and the light into his eyes…
So that he may connect to his essence…
And reach his highest potential…
