Following the phases of the Moon is useful because it provides a framework within which you can structure your goals. How much can you accomplish if you focus on it intently for two weeks? How about a month? The Full Moon peaked this morning at 12:44 EDT and will reflect brightly in the sky for the next few nights. Take this opportunity to decide what is important to accomplish this month and then devise a plan to achieve it. By the next Full Moon in August, you should be able to look back and see definite progress.
Not setting goals is a good way not to get anything done. Break the big jobs up into smaller segments and aim for the next New Moon to start and finish something. That gives you two weeks to accomplish it. Be realistic and work consistently and methodically and the tasks will get done. Once you get used to setting time frames, the momentum builds and the bad habit of procrastination can be defeated. Time is something not to be wasted because for us it is finite and can’t be bought, borrowed or stolen.
More Moon – A Full Moon lunar eclipse occurs in the sign of Capricorn early today, and our emotions are heightened. This eclipse gives us the push to make needed changes in our lives. There can be epiphanies or turning points, effectively clearing the path to move forward. Watch for a heightened awareness of flaws in your life structure, particularly in career or outer structures and home and family. Decisions made now can be emotionally-driven, but the Moon in Capricorn encourages you to be practical and responsible.
Thought of the Day – Balance what you do this month. Decide what you have to do, what you want to do, and then find a way to get both done. Carrying projects and to-do lists around in your mind is far more work than just getting something done. Free up your energy by moving forward and not staying stuck where you are. Life is for living, after all. Have a wonderful day.
