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

What Astrological Element Am I? The Meaning and Signs of All Four Elements
In western astrology, the universe is formed by the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. These are the outward manifestations of the true elements. Each of the four elements contains its own unique properties, which work simultaneously to create one united universe. None of the elements are inherently good or bad, however, each has both positive and negative qualities.
Whether you’re loud or quiet, timid, outgoing, impetuous, or logical, your personality is filled with complexity. It can be difficult to self-evaluate to gain insight into our base emotions and desires. That’s why finding your element can help. As you read over the qualities associated with each of the four elements of nature, you might have your “aha!” moment, or you might feel as though you don’t relate to certain aspects.
This variation is because every person is an utterly unique combination of elements. By finding your dominant element, you’ll be able to better appreciate your own strengths and weaknesses. This understanding will help you to build better, stronger relationships with those around you. Let your element be a guide to a more intuitive self.
