Daily Words of the Buddha for September 16, 2021

Sukhā virāgatā loke
kāmānaṃ samatikkamo
asmimānassa yo vinayo
etaṃ ve paramaṃ sukhaṃ.

Freedom from lust is happiness in the world,
the going beyond all sensual desires.
But the crushing out of the conceit “I am”–
this is the highest happiness.

Udāna 2.11

Energy Update | September 3, 2021

Own the fact that you are different
Own that you are a deep feeler and thinker
Own that you’re tuned into a different frequency
Own the fact that you sense things others don’t
Own the fact that you want to talk about angels,
energy, miracles and spirituality
Own that you’re done having meaningless conversations
Own that you’re done holding yourself back
Own that you crave freedom to feel the now
It’s ok if your family don’t get you.
It’s ok if your friends don’t join you
It’s ok if the world judges you
It’s ok that you want to dance barefoot upon the earth
and endlessly gaze at the stars
It’s ok that you cry over sunsets and chase moonbeams
It’s wonderful in fact. It’s beautiful
You have come a long way to be who you are
So own it. Own all of it. Love all of you
The world needs you to be exactly as you are
You hold the balance in this crazy world

Astrology | Blue Full Moon, August 21, 2021

🌕Second Full Moon in Aquarius🌕
This Blue Moon occurs as the second Full Moon in Aquarius since the Full Moon in July was also in Aquarius. The July Full Moon occurred in the first degree of the sign which gives us a surge of new energy and a sense of movement and beginnings. Now, in the last degree is a call to action and sense of completion of that which has started, especially since this a culmination being a Full Moon.
Aquarius is the 11th sign (I love 11) and this is truly a sign of groundbreaking and new earth thinking, innovation and the future. It also holds the Uranian energy of sudden movement and change, disruption and the collective. It is the sign before watery Pisces which is oneness, unconditional love and collective awakening. So Aquarius is a crucial step in humanity to move forward in mind and soul. We have to do the work of this 11 house before we can upgrade to the state of complete oneness, non-duality and total devotion and unconditional service. This means that we need to align with the collective consciousness, bring awareness and understanding to that which is happening in the whole, to bring it all together and forward.
The work we do within will help shift that which is without. Since this is the sign that is associated with air and the mental energy, now is a good time to slow down through meditation and open up to receive upgrades and downloads.
How has the past month been for you and what is your intention for this Full Moon?
