Full Blood Moon and Libra Lunar Eclipse
Full Moons like April 4, 2015 are a time of letting go. According to expert Jordan Danae Macbeth of Be Yoga World, “This Full Moon is known as the third of four “Blood Moons.” Also known as “The Four Horsemen” and a “Tetrad,” this is an extraordinary event that takes place every 500 years or so. According to history, every time this has occurred has been a time of HUGE change and tragedy followed by a HUGE triumph.
In addition, today is also a Lunar Eclipse. This eclipse is a powerful time to wipe our slates clean. Think of this as the ultimate cleanse!
You may want to fight and cling to what is leaving you. But the only way out is through letting go. If we want to be healthier, then we have to let go of unhealthy habits.
Being on the mat in meditation or yoga reveals what is necessary for us to evolve. We get to see where we are resistant to change, or where we doubt ourselves and hesitate, which are forms of resistance. Even when we know what we want, if we replay old patterns, we will hold ourselves back. This eclipse knows how to push our buttons, forcing us to face our insecurities and fears. While this is challenging, there is no better time than now to eliminate people and situations that are working against you.
Today, begin by saying I AM READY FOR CHANGE. Use the transformational energies of the full moon and lunar eclipse as a motivational turning point to move through your fear. Think of this as a mental and emotional cleanse to bring positive changes in your life.
Meet Your Resistance
Joseph Campbell found that there was one crucial moment in every Hero’s Journey and that is the “Call to Adventure.” This is the moment when the hero is living his or her normal life and something changes. At this moment, there is an opportunity to go on a journey.
The question is, does the hero say yes or no?
Every hero says no at first.
Why? It is simple: fear. The hero knows that if she says yes, her life will never be the same. The hero is afraid of change, afraid of risk, afraid of greatness. But being a hero means having courage and moving forward even though you are afraid.
So, consider today a call to one of the greatest adventures of your life! Love yourself, love your day, love your life! ~ Silvia

This Rare Cosmic Alignment Happens Once a Decade
Mars and Jupiter in conjunction in Aries. How you can take advantage of the energy produced by this meeting of planets.
On May 29 Mars and Jupiter will be in conjunction where they will appear to be close to each other when observed from Earth, and they will both be in Aries, something we have not seen since April of 2011. What will the conjunction of these strong planets in Aries mean to us?
“To understand this conjunction at a personal level, we need to understand that Mars is our drive, and Jupiter expands everything that it touches. These two planets are aligning in the constellation of Aries. What is Aries? Aries is the energy of birth, it’s the energy of beginnings, it’s where the fire starts,” said astrologer Mercedes Arnus Arraut.
“It’s the energy that gets us going — that gets us moving. By Mars being in Aries, it’s the warrior entering onto the battlefield,” she said. “So, we can be feeling very feisty, we can be feeling a lot of energy, especially because Jupiter is going to highlight all that warrior energy. So, when Jupiter touches Mars all our fire is highlighted; we feel a very strong drive; we feel like our energy is on fire, and it’s very beautiful because 2022 has been a year, so far, that has been very sensitive. “
