MEDITATING WITH THE MOON – Tuesday, January 17, 2016

 
MOON IN VIRGO THEN LIBRA
When your instincts are challenged by your reasoning powers or sense of logic, step back to get some perspective, rather than forcing anything. Be emotionally responsive and fair with others, while using your mind with integrity rather than ego.
 
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I’m working toward emotional and intellectual equilibrium; I love the people who are important to me and am careful with their emotions.

HOW TO MEDITATE WITH THE MOON

 
Using these simple Moon thoughts are a wonderful way to begin a daily meditation practice that keeps you focused on, and grounded in, the emotional energy of the Cosmos each and every day.
 
You can do a very simple 8/4 count meditation, which means you settle into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus on your breath, and breathe in to a slow count of 8, hold it for 4 counts, and then breathe out for a slow count of 8. Hold your breath again for 4 counts. On the in-breath recite a word or phrase from the Moon Meditation in your mind, focusing on that energy and holding it, and then consciously release that same energy out into the world on the out-breath. Then empty your mind space for 4 counts, and begin the process again on the in-breath with the next word or phrase from the Moon Meditation.

MOON IN VIRGO
Use impulsive energy to be direct and passionate rather than irritable or aggravated. Let the details inform the broad view, and remember to pay attention to both. Make the appropriate adjustments to be able to envision a better goal or a more exciting future, and get grounded in your commitments.
 
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I am grounded in the moment and committed to the future; I own my personal responses with responsibility.

MOON IN GEMINI
Analyze your intentions as we gather light toward the Full Moon. Be curious. Communicate. Make the necessary adjustments as you begin to gain momentum. And remember to ALWAYS challenge the lack of beauty and the absence of heart in all that you do. Look for the Divine and manifest from there.
 
WORDS FOR MEDITATION
I am an inspired love and beauty bringer; I analyze and make necessary adjustments.
