The lunar activities this month are full to the brim with excitement. We are lucky enough to experience two Full Moons in October, the second of which will be rising on Halloween night! But before we get that far ahead, let’s explore what tomorrow's lunar beauty has in store for us.
The first Full Moon of October rises in the Aries constellation on October 1st. The other players in this cosmic dance have some influence over our behaviors as well. The Sun quincunx Uranus might have some of us feeling a little uneasy. Maybe switch to a lower caffeine tea this week instead of the usual cup of coffee in the morning. It might help if you find you’re unable to relax with the electrifying energy build up coming from the cosmos.
Don’t be afraid of change this month. As the artist, Sam Weiss, once said, “Change is not a force to be feared, but an opportunity to be seized!”
Whether your plans have changed without notice, or there’s a new person joining your team. It’s common to be anxious about these occurrences as you’re not sure how the new energy will affect your immediate environment. It is in these moments when your flexibility and open mindedness is crucial to help you and those within your support system to have a positive experience.
If you find you’re inconsolably against the change that is coming, or have already altered your comfortable routine, take a step back and try to view your position from another’s perspective. You may find there are details you would have otherwise missed that help you see where you can still maintain your comfort.
Remember that a rash reaction made without consideration to those around you could have damaging effects on your personal and professional relationships. Hopefully those in your life have the kindness and sight to see through such behavior, but don’t count on this––especially if you’re prone to such outbursts. We never know what will be the breaking point for some.
If you do find your anxiety is high strung and you're in need of a little extra you-time, here are some helpful practices we like to engage in.
- Step away from the internet for a set period of time.
- Go for a walk, on the beach if you can but anywhere where you can remain socially distant is helpful for calming your mind.
- Drink a glass of water or make a cup of tea.
- Practice some simple breathing exercises.
- Do your morning yoga flow––it doesn’t matter what time it is!
- Call a friend––be sure to ask them if they have the mind-space to talk before you do!
