Taming ego and letting go of anger.

This really strikes a cord with me today. It’s not something I would ever write, but I have said some of these things. All in all, an excellently written piece that I thought I’d share. =)

 

The Power Within

Anger is energy, and most of the time we misdirect our energy. If we spend our energy complaining, pointing fingers of blame and concentrating on who’s “right” and what’s “wrong”, instead of talking like adults and honestly try to understand and heal the situation, maybe learning to peacefully respond to each unique circumstance rather than reacting to them, to learn that we are, in fact, only draining away the creative energy it takes to solve the problem. Instead of bringing a catalyst for change, anger becomes an excuse for staying stuck.

egoLetting go of anger, self-pity, and self-righteousness can be a powerful decision. It runs counter to our society’s emphasis on who’s “right” and who’s” wrong”.

When anger is nurtured there are no winners. It truly doesn’t matter who’s “right” or who’s “wrong” because, the end result is that all the parties become losers. Relationships are lost, experiences are…

The full moon on December 17th is called Cold Moon, Open Moon, or Big Winter Moon. As the sun sign is Sagittarius (November 23rd–December 21st), this produces a full air moon in the opposite sign of Gemini. Wiccan spells and rituals for this full moon relate to renewing contacts and communication with others by writing letters, placing phone calls, or face-to-face meetings.

This full moon is an ideal opportunity to cleanse and charge your tools for the Winter Solstice/Yule on December 21st, 2013.

This is an especially special Full Moon because it is the last one of this year. It is a time to use the Moon’s light to charge our energies, and ready ourselves for Yule and the coming New Year. This particular full moon will not be boring and will have an unpredictable vibe along with it. What was stuck may suddenly begin to move or shift. If emotions are clogged, they may surface and flow. Allow this. Be as loving as possible with yourself, and others. The potential of the Full Moon in Gemini is to become aware of where you are engaging in dualistic thoughts, emotions, and behaviors on auto-pilot. This may be generating a lot of mental stress and tension plus sending out mixed signals to others and the Universe. Some people may be irritable and cranky. Emotions can be raw and urgent. Breathe deeply. Ground yourself. Keep a sense of humor. Be of good cheer. Be the calm in the storm. Get in the driver seat and empower yourself. Be honest with yourself. Stop arguing for your limitations. Take responsibility for your life. In this way, you can change what is not working. You are the master of your destiny. Take your power back from society and/or other people. Learn from your mistakes. Vow to do better next year. Make a commitment to your success. Be adaptable. Make friends with change. It is not the enemy. Change is your friend. Change sheds the old and gives birth to the new. With Yule and New year approaching look deep into yourself and ask what you want to happen in the coming year, ask yourself how you will bring it about. Make this the year that you make all your dreams come true. The energy from this Full Moon wants you to succeed. Tell the Moon your hopes and dreams write them down on paper and burn them by a white candle. As the smoke drifts to the heavens, the universe will receive your message.
