Today is the day of the brightest First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius. This luminous Moon brings agitation of the spirit. You seem to be living with restlessness and anxiety. One of the main reasons we sometimes feel totally restless is because we’re searching for happiness. Let go of the need to be any different than you are right now, let go of the desire to be happy, just say: “that’s it, I don’t care any longer… I am the way I am my life is the way it is and I’m ok with it…” Let go of all the pressure, take off the weight of your shoulders – LIGHTEN UP! We spend a lot of our lives trying to change what we don’t like about ourselves. If we aren’t changing them, we’re complaining about them. Relax in the silence and turn off your fears and internal voices. Let yourself be surrounded by feelings like satisfaction, internal peace and balance between the heart and mind. If you feel uneasy, give yourself a little twist of thought: choose not to be that way. Turn off those feelings and remember that you are valuable. Writing can be a wonderfully therapeutic activity. There is some kind of magic that happens when you put your thoughts or worries to paper. It does not matter what you are writing about, just get it out of your head.
