In today’s tumultuous times, we are more in need than ever for ways to bring about healing. Halt, Expand, Accept, Lovingly act, aka H.E.A.L., is a mindfulness based acronym I developed as a strategy for helping with the healing process. Life can be full of challenges, stressors, and suffering. Many of us find ourselves either feeling unable to cope or developing maladaptive coping techniques. Until we learn to pause and become more self-aware, we will unconsciously continue in a cycle of despair. In order to bring about more healing we need to get real. To get real we need to become more aware of what is real. If there is something in your life that you are ready to heal from, now is the time. This blog will get you started with a simple 4-step process. Ready to H.E.A.L.?

The first week of May is highlighted by the full moon in Scorpio May 3rd which squares Jupiter.  Passions can flair up as facts come to light revealing legal questions regarding debt, taxes or injustice.  Who can be trusted, who is being set in their ways. Extra expenses  can especially affect those born on or near May 3rd, Nov 4-5 while those born near August 4-5 could find travel quite an adventure. On May 3rd as well Mercury opposes a retrograde Saturn falling from Gemini to Sagittarius. Pessimism or a critical nature is the pitfall and a square to Neptune at the same time may require fact-checking to avoid misleading information. Focus and concentration for those engaged in creative endeavors can  lead to a very productive period for those with discipline. This is a critical day for Gemini born on or near May 23-24, Sagittarians born on or near November 24-25.
