This Episode's Theme...
#UNFILTERED Moon Musings :: New Moon in Libra :: Air Alchemy, Changing Winds, & Feeling Safe in Transitions
Megan and Venessa discuss the themes of this New Moon in Libra and the importance of self-reflection in these shadowy and triggering times.
We talk about aligning goals with your intentions and how you want to feel, the importance of creating space for your intentions and desires to come thru - and how this usually means releasing which can bring up grief, loss, sadness in this transition (all emotional aspects of the lungs!).
We cover honoring grief in this fall time with the shedding, and how to embody elements in nature, such as the trees up-taking nutrients and storing for the rest of the season - how can we integrate this into our lives too?
Megan also shares the launch of her website Amethyst & Rose, plus she’s offering a free meal plan based on seasonal eating when you sign up for her email list - pop over and say hello!
