The First Quarter Moon arrives today, and becomes closer to Venus. This Libra Moon has a strong attraction to forward thinking. Learn to let go of a past hurt, it’s time to welcome new opportunities into your life. Focusing on who is to blame for past hurts can spoil the present. Instead of dwelling on who has caused you pain, forgive them. Focus on present events and leave behind any blame or hurt you feel. If you are harboring resentment towards another human being because of past hurts, choose to forgive and move on. The harm was their fault. But allowing it to impact your mood today is yours. Unfortunately, bad memories stay with us forever. Fortunately, so do good ones. Living in the moment means doing or feeling or seeing or recognizing what’s right in front of you. The important thing is to let yourself experience everything—the good and the bad—and once you experience it, then you let it pass. Choosing to live in the past or the future not only robs you of enjoyment today, it robs you of truly living. The only important moment is the present moment. Do something different today. Smile and compliment someone who looks down. Not only will you feel great about making someone else happy, but this will remind you that sometimes someone does lend a hand—and maybe someone will be there to help you when you need it, too.
