free yourself: thoughts on the blue moon & your creativity

free yourself

 

You can wait for the stars to align

You can wait for the right kind of sign

You can hope and pray for an answer

You can tiptoe around like a dancer

 

But no matter the season or time

No matter if you don’t have a dime

If there’s something you want to do

The power of creation is in YOU.

 

Because the stars reflect your light

The signs show up with your might

The answer was in you all along

The dancer can choose her song.

 

 

As someone who loves reading horoscopes and following the cycles of the moon, I know that it’s easy to get caught up thinking that once something in the stars shifts, then it will all get better. It’s easy to wait for outside circumstances or people to change, rather than initiating the change we want in ourselves and taking ownership of our lives.

 

Today actually is one of those powerful moon days - a blue moon, to be exact. But rather than give you my amateur opinion on it, I’ll let you read on here if you’re curious. Here’s my favorite excerpt from that article:

“No more days should be wasted waiting for things to magically change. We are the ones that can create those changes as we have all the magic and creativity within.”

 

That’s it.

That’s the quote that inspired that poem I wrote above.

That’s the message I wanted to share today.

 

If there’s something in your life that you want to create or shift, really look at how you’re contributing to staying where you are. Really look at the small mundane steps you need to take to get there. There’s hard work behind magic. It takes 10 years to become an overnight success. You get my point.

 

I’ll keep this one short, since I think we all have deep work to get to today.

So tell me in one sentence in the comments below:

What’s the shift you want to make or the thing you want to create in your life and how have you been holding yourself back from getting there?

 

Then free yourself. Take the first step.

 

Setting an intention for what you want today can be really powerful, especially in the areas of creativity and relationships - because of the moon and Venus! - but don’t forget that it’s then up to you to uphold the agreement through your actions.

 

To making it happen,

Jess

p.s. If dance is one of those things you’ve been saying you want to do again or do more of, but you still manage to NOT do it consistently, I have something for you. There are a handful of spots left in my upcoming program - both online and live in NYC. Read on for details.
