August Full Moon – Discover Ways to Overcome Frustration and Resistance

Summary: 

The Hardest Lesson should be the title of this Full Moon. The tightness of the energies is at an all-time high and the best thing you can do is to accept and allow. You’ll want to rail, fight and frustrate, but resist the temptation to succumb to these emotions. 

If you relent, you’ll then want to descend into self-sabotage, self-defeat or even despair. 

Instead, lean back and be vulnerable. 

It’s a big ask, but trust and have faith this is for the best. Fill your mind with wonder. Believe in potential. Welcome the new. 

All things are possible. 

I’ll be going LIVE on Monday, August 3rd at 9:00 am ET to talk all about ways to make this energy work for you. Join us in my Power Up! group.

Tarot: 

Regenerator – Sage of Cups

This tarot card brings the energies of the Moon to assist in regulating your inner emotional waters. It helps you go with the flow in the cycles of life. 

It also signifies the mastery of stagnation. You overcome the frustration of being held back when you see the benefits of fine-tuning, deepening and sharpening. Assess the areas of your life needing attention. 

Find fulfillment in folding new life into old patterns and behaviors. Create growth opportunities by discovering the joy of review, refinement and restraint. 

By doing so for yourself, you generate relief and satisfaction for others. The ripple effect is profound. 

Astrological Energies: 

The tension in this Full Moon is high as it’s awash in a sea of red. The Sun and Moon reaches her maximum at 11:59 am ET giving you the energy to break free by expressing yourself truthfully and vulnerably. 

Ask yourself a few questions: 

  • What yearns to be spoken? 
  • How does your heart want to open to trust?
  • What karmic shifts are revealing themselves to you?
  • Why are these patterns repeating? 

Be honest with yourself. You’re the only witness to your answers unless you decide otherwise. 

Let’s break down these energies to discover the tools available to you in this tense moment. 

Your thoughts, emotions and will are involved as well as your karma around money, relationships and love. 

Is that all? 

Actually, no. 

Thankfully, there are supportive energies that may not feel supportive. But, that’s okay as any support is welcome. 

Breaking free is possible as you have the energetic forces for freedom, fearlessness and success. Phew. 

Freedom from being held back. 

Freedom from acting disingenuously. 

Freedom from ignoring, mitigating or depleting your inner voice. 

Ignore the discomfort and embrace the uncertainty of this moment. 

It’ll do you a WORLD of good. 

Rely on tools you may have ‘outgrown’ as these provide the appropriate level of assistance. They also provide solace by being so comfortable and easy to use.

When your thoughts drift into doubt, negativity or self-sabotage, use your mantras and affirmations to shift them into more expansive patterns. 

When your feelings move into either the hot or depressive zones, use EFT, flower essences, talk therapy or the Moon’s energy to give you the emotional safety to process your emotions. 

When you will takes a powder, leverage your self-discipline to just do it. If your will amps into the aggressive, use this fuel by getting to work. Alternately, expend your excess energy with physical activity. You may even want to be amorous, if the mood strikes you. 😉

In all cases, any healing modality is excellent – absolutely excellent. Employ any and all that speak to you.  

Be wary of deflecting your inner work by projecting onto others. If you fall into the mode of ‘he should do this…’ or ‘why isn’t she doing that…’ Stop. Breathe and ask yourself the very same questions. 

This is about you, not them. 

It always is. 

Full Moon Recommendations: 

  • Strategize and set goals for the rest of 2020 and the first ½ of 2021. 
  • Take care of your financial wellbeing.  Talk about your finances with your partner. Budget and plan. (The time for organizing and handling the details comes later in the month.)
  • Be tender with loved ones, including yourself. 
  • Get karmic healing. 
  • Don’t negotiate any deals or sign any contracts. 
  • Gain solace by spending time in nature. 
  • Find ways to laugh. 
  • Seek solace in using your comfortable tools for support. 

Full Moon Crystal: 

Seek respite in the Full Moon stone: Smithsonite

Smithsonite is a stone of tranquility and kindness. It’s most common coloring is a soft greenish-blue that’s soothing to look at and peaceful to the senses. 

It’s the perfect crystal for this Full Moon as it provides a buffer between you and life’s challenges. It gives you courage and compassion in equal measure. 

If you want to delve into its magic, smithsonite heals the inner child and dissolves emotional trauma. It also strengthens psychic abilities, leadership qualities and provides harmony in uncomfortable situations. 

It can be placed in grid fashion around the bed and I thought of doing this, but it would be really expensive. 

Thank you for reading and sharing with friends. 

As always, wishing you joy, 

Kim

Intimacy.

It’s such a sexy word invoking thoughts of romance and sensuality.

Yet, the true meaning of intimacy is ‘into me you see’.

Intimacy relates directly to the KLT factor.

Life continues even when you’re on the luge of self-discovery. Kids grow, careers change, families come together or fall apart – life goes on.

I’ve been on the healing mission to get to my KWAN and know joy is part of it, so I explore everything about joy I can get my hands on. I delve deeply into the feminine, reach into bliss, find ways to happiness and define joy to figure out the similarities and differences.

It’s one thing to be resolute about changing something as big as the impact of a narcissistic mother and emotionally unavailable father while starting a family of your own and it’s another to actually do it.

Intimacy Part 1

“What’s your KWAN?” I’m asked at dinner by Dr. Bill, a friend of the new love of my life, Greg.

I answer confidently describing my work, my graduate studies, my travels…he interrupts, “That’s not your KWAN, that’s just stuff you do.”
