Wednesday July 1 brings the 1st full moon which falls in Capricorn.  Pluto conjoins this moon with Mars, god of war applying in opposition conjunct the sun.  Emotions run high, will power and drive to excel spur some with a  competitive spirit. Challenges push people to make constructive changes.  The sun also in harmony to Neptune during this full moon period bring out the creativity and compassion. This is a good time to take a walk in nature, take in a concert or go to the movies. This full moon is important for those born near December 30th and June 26th.

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.
