Self care practice should include creative writing, journaling, and reflection. How can you evolve yourself if you don’t know yourself?
I encourage you to use words to plant seeds of what you want to grow in your mindscape. Write it, embrace it, see it into being. That said, this is a reminder that your mindscape is an ecosystem. Some thing will start to grow, increase in effect of another thing starting to die off, decrease. Being in conversation with yourself and a planting process during the lunar cycle can be powerful. It is one way of self study (svadhyaya).
We meet a new moon in Libra on October 7.
The vibe of Libra, the archetype of the judge, is intense: Libra is here to hold the filter through which we shout “Other!”. We can create our experience world as pure projections and at times, not even realize it. “You’re other!” We can condemn or redeem other people by measuring them against our projections and at times, not even realize it. “You’re other!” And make that other seem like it’s a bad thing, some thing we judge and condemn.
But do you even reflect, babe?
Reflection is a redemptive process.
(A friendly reminder: EVOL language strives for equanimity across gender constructs; that means that “babes” are boys and girls and every boygirl/girlboy across the lines.)
Consider that what you see in an other might really be your deeply sourced projection. What you allow another person to be might just reflect what you allow yourself to be. If you realize this, you’re vibing up. And the way you can undo the whole convexed vision-thing is love: put on rose-colored glasses. Look at them, look at you with love. It might be just an imaginative exercise, but it’s a start. Can you even? It’s intense. I know.
Know, too, that it’s prime time to sit with the love vibe. How does that feel?
Venus, the planet that brings us vibes of love and beauty and luxury also brings us a fucking reckoning of why we feel unloved, unbeautiful, and broke AF.
Libra is ruled by Venus, and that bish is retrograding rn. We’re going back over, down in the deep deep, and revisiting, reminding, renewing contracts, words we tell ourselves over and over again, about what we’re worth. What we’re doing versus what we feel like we should be doing. Where our sources of love, beauty, and luxury are (or aren’t).
The energies, care of the cosmic weather, are offering us a chance to un-vex our vision and engage in the world in a just manner. Take off our resting bitch faces and gussy up to glow.
If you are ready to see the world, get to work. Hold the process down. Reflect. Plant the seeds for just vision. There ain’t any OTHER; we are all humans having an angsty time.
REFLECTION PROMPT: Do you like what you see in your mirror?

PS Yes, all the feels. And Scorpio season is coming up, too. The intensity might level up. I’m expanding my virtual fire ceremony offerings. They are sacred spaces where you can let go of things that don’t serve you. Let’s talk if you are curious but need to know more.
