Today brings the First Quarter Moon, rising at noon and highest at sunset, bringing with it a feeling of independence. Can we love and detach? It’s a hard concept to master, but it allows us to live the best possible life. A loving form of detachment will help others develop a sense of self as well. Detachment does not mean disinterest. You will still be concerned with what happens to another, but it can keep us from being drawn into their drama. If you feel overwhelmed by the feelings of others, or feel that your self-image comes entirely from others, you might need a period of detachment. Realize that you are the only person you can control. The only power another person has over you is the power you give them. Take back your power. Learn to love yourself.
