☾ New Moon in Aquarius☽ ⇣You & the Community⇡
As the moon is waxing & we are setting new intentions for what we want from life, it's time to get outside of our usual routines & patterns of behavior that have made us feel stuck. After all, if we keep doing what we're doing, we'll keep getting what we're getting.
On Monday, the New Moon entered Aquarius, which is a time to reflect on our intentions & role within the greater community. Below, I offer one perspective on which you can reflect as you begin to reconsider your current patterns of behavior.

The Golden Rule. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Have we somehow forgotten that? Or do we just hate ourselves that much? Have we forgotten how to love ourselves? Do we even know what that actually means?
Loving yourself is not letting yourself just do whatever you want. Any good parent knows that. But you're an adult now, and you don't have mom to do it for you anymore. In order to love yourself, you have to set boundaries for yourself. That's what being an adult is. If you don't set boundaries for yourself, you're appear to be a reflection of an overgrown kid who can pay his own bills but spends the rest of his time eating Lucky Charms and watching Netflix.
Being an adult is hard, I know, but when you don't set boundaries for yourself, you are not fully loving yourself. If you do not love yourself, you are, by extension, incapable of fully loving others. Your petty, childish B.S. gets in the way.
Therefore, it is imperative that you push aside the Lucky Charms, and allow yourself grow up and flourish. Learn to love yourself & flourish by setting boundaries for yourself. Make a sacrifice. Do something you don't want to do. Allow yourself to branch out of your current patterns of behavior. Society needs you. Do you want to contribute to the chaos, or do you want to bring healing?
Treat others the way you want to be treated. The world needs peace, not corruption. The world needs reasonable adults. The world needs healing, and it starts with you.
Peace starts with you. Put down your phone and do something you don't want to do. Loving yourself is giving yourself boundaries. It's hard, I know, but that's how you level up. Don't you want to level up? Allow yourself to flourish by breaking out of old patterns of behavior that no longer serve you.
Do something you don't want to do. In doing so, you are contributing to the healing the world desperately needs. Be a healer. Do something you don't want to do. It's good for you, and it's good for the world.
Peace, Love & Courage,
