Today is December 29th the sun is in Capricorn and our last full moon of 2020 is happening tonight in Cancer. The moon rules Cancer so she is completely in her element.
So are you.
This is a great time to honor the guardrails that you’ve built that make you you safe and release any you don’t need any more.
When I was little, I rode a tricycle and then moved up to a two wheeler with training wheels. I loved that bike and I felt kind of like one of the big kids on it.
I noticed that first day though that the training wheels didn’t both touch the ground at the same time. It seemed like one of them only touched when I leaned a little bit and I wondered if I even needed them.
It turns out I didn’t and so we quickly moved to that moment when my dad had me get on, he took a few quick steps with me holding on then and let go and I was cruising on my own.
It felt amazing. It was like my world opened up. I could ride farther and faster and I was doing it all on my own. I was doing it. I didn’t look at it as losing training wheels, I felt like I was gaining freedom.
This is the opportunity I’m offering you.
It’s important to have supportive boundaries in life. We thrive when we feel safe and aren’t worrying if we will be hurt. The thing is some of those boundaries have a shelf life and are only meant to be temporary. They get us to the moment in time when we realize we don’t actually need them and if we hold on to them past that point, they become limitations.
This is an incredible time to release something you’ve out grown. Maybe you’ve recently done this and are just now noticing that you did. Congratulations.
Maybe doing this has crossed your mind recently, but you think you’ll hold on a little longer. As with all things, you do what’s best for you. My message to you today though is that you get to choose how you look at release. You can see it as a loss, like losing something that holds you up or you can see it as a gain, like gaining freedom, confidence, opportunities.
So you decide, is there some belief, habit, behavior, choice that is starting to feel more self-limiting than self-supporting? I bet there is and this is the perfect time to let it go.
It served its purpose and without it you are going to go farther, feel more deeply, and experience more fulfillment in your life. You can do this.
You aren’t losing anything. The release opens up a space for more of what nurtures you. You’ve got this.
Have a beautiful full moon.
