This first quarter moon is all about gaining new perspectives and learned life lessons.
You may notice that you have been really focused on the good stuff. You have not been sitting in the pool of the pains or worries of the world. This is a choice you made to see all the beauty that life offers. It isn’t that the pain doesn’t exist, but more so that you’ve chosen your focus.
However, you may be surrounded by people stuck in the cycle of pain and worry. Thing is, you can clearly see their truth past all the pain they are holding. As a healer, you may even attempt to show them their own light. Yet, you see that they are having a hard time hearing or even seeing you right now. They are a bit blinded by the pain of the world.
This response may leave you feeling like a failure. You wonder why that didn’t work to make them feel better. You may begin to wonder if something is wrong with you. Is there something you should change? is there a new approach you can't see? Is there something you can't see that others do?
As you question yourself, you may notice that the worries of the world begin to take focus. Yet, deep down inside, you know that nothing is wrong but you are having a hard time solving this new puzzle in your life.
This first quarter moon is showing you that your identity and truth can be separate from what is happening within the world. You do not have to literally identity with the pains of the world. You have your own identity and truth.
Recently, for just a moment, you lost sight of this. You started solving problems instead of simply shining brightly. As you are moving within these life dichotomies, you are learning how much easier it is to be in your truth...even if others can't have it ( or you ) right now.
During the first quarter moon, you are moving back into being yourself. You are committed to maintaining the integrity of your truth against all odds. You may notice there are not many others like you. Still, you hold firm to your truth - even if you are more alone or even feeling lonely. You are seeing that being in your truth matters more.
With this moon, you are learning that living in your truth is the healing. As you look back, you see how your truth made others happy, hopeful, and inspired to pursue something outside the pain of the world. This new perspective allows you to have an appreciation for having enough space to be happy.
You are beginning to understand the impact being yourself has on the world. When you are unmatched from others pain, and separate from the grief of the world, a new type of healing arrives. This entire journey of being in both dichotomies of living - simply being vs. fixing - has brought a new answer into your.life.
