23 September – 22 October
As you continue to re-calibrate the great big weighing scales of your life, there is a sense you are beginning to relax a bit more when it comes to making decisions and choices. In many ways, there is a sense of self-imposed pressure to get life ‘right’ and you often judge yourself very harshly for ‘mistakes’. Yet, what you see as a mistake is more just a part of the inevitable journey of life as we all make ‘wrong’ turns and meander off course. However, whilst most people acknowledge this and move on, you find it somewhat harder as you want to know what went wrong, why, how and who etc. Of course, knowing such things can help you understand yourself better and also maybe help you to avoid making the same ‘mistakes’ again, but there is a risk that focusing too hard on what you get wrong, rather than on what you get right, can leave you with a skewed sense of self.
Life is a moveable object; mistakes and wrong turns are inevitable and can assist in making you more self-aware, self-compassionate and tender. Within your heart and soul you are something of a free spirit and if you’re too hard on yourself, there is a chance that you end up caging your soaring spirit as you find reasons ‘not to’ or delve ever more deeply into ‘what went wrong’; please stop giving yourself a hard time. Understanding is of course a good thing, but so is acknowledging the situation and moving on as you create space for new opportunities and experiences, otherwise a log jam can form. It’s time now to let go of the cycle of self-judgement and instead start to allow more inwardly focused compassion and tenderness into your heart and soul…
