WHO ARE YOU? Let me rephrase… Who WERE you… And who do you WANT TO BE?

NEW MOON: New Beginnings

ARIES: Vitality, Life-Force Energy, Identity, Ego, Self (ish), Warrior, Anger, Courage, Motivation, Action, Energy, Drive, Foward Movement, Impatience, Independence, Inspiration, Passion, Enthusiasm, Truth, Honesty, Generosity, Pioneer, Leadership, Defender-of-the-Weak

This new moon is all about upgrading your “Is-ness”! In other words, asserting a new identity in the world and taking strong and decisive action that reflects this new You! There may be an uncomfortable feel to this lunation as it’s caught up in the seemingly neverending Pluto-Uranus square, where there is a push and pull between the establishment (of your life) and rebellious revolution (of your identity). There will likely be an unstable flavor to things as indie, unpredictable Uranus electrifies your drive to break free of the shackles that have been holding you down foreverrr. This is a time to be inspired, strong and powerful! Stand back, bitches! New You, coming through! Errr… maybe a better expression of this energy would be to rise up proud and Care-Bear-Stare others with the inspiration and passion you possess. As a wise woman named Gabby Bernstein is known to say:

“…As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

And in case the whole “What people will think/say/do’” feeling churns in the pit of your stomach… here’s a nugget of wisdom from the lovely Andromeda Turre, a singer/songwriter in NYC who seems to know a thing or two about courage:

“If you don’t have haters, you’re playing it too safe.”

Innnteresting, no? This is a very exciting, but volatile energy. You may think it wise to be extra mindful during this period to avoid fights, drama and upheaval… and it totally would be. But as a double Aries, I know that this energy is not about forward-thinking, self-restraint, maturity… or caution. And frankly, if it were, there’s no way it’d be capable of breaking us free from the garbage that’s been holding us back. So yes, bring as much self-awareness to the table as possible, but part of this is honoring the ferocity and even the anger we may be feeling. If we can do this, we will be empowered to express it much more constructively. We will still rock the boat but maybe avoid the capsize ????

So don’t be afraid to take the action that reflects the new You, and be okay with the bumps.

Experiencing this energy as it moves through us – and in turn moves us to take action – is part of our greater spiritual evolution. Aries energy is about ego development, and that’s an important aspect of this divine experience. We will see where we need to shift and integrate (and otherwise smarten up!) as a result of the actions we are moved to take – especially if they cause a bit of a mess. We can’t control everything, and no amount of calm, rational speculation brings the clarity and enlightenment of experience. Ever had someone give you good advice you just couldn’t take because until you learned it for yourself – through experience – you couldn’t truly get it? That. So don’t be afraid to take the action that reflects the new You, and be okay with the bumps. It comes back to trust again – trusting the revolution that’s going down inside of us. The smartest thing we can do is honor this energy as our truth and the thrilling new beginning for us!

Mars retrogrades are on the rarer side, only happening once every two or so years, so this is a special time of healing as frustrating as it may feel.

We can’t know in advance how it will play out. Chances are, whatever path you think the new You is about to charge down will have some speedbumps, potholes… detours. This is because this lunation is ruled by Mars, which is barely moving at the moment as he prepares to go retrograde on April 17th until August. Mars retrogrades are on the rarer side, only happening once every two or so years, so this is a special time of healing as frustrating as it may feel. Since Mars is pure inspiration, pure life force energy and our ‘get-up-and-go’, a retrograde means that energy doesn’t move forward directly. Think of it like this: we’ll be taking the scenic route to wherever we’re going. Not impatient Mars’ favourite, but what we find there will enrich and empower this new Us in ways we can’t currently even conceive of.

Who do you want to be? Define it. Do It. Be It. Own it. Mars retro will help us tweak as we go!

We often hear that the leading cause of our problems is within ourselves. But so is the solution.

It may seem far-fetched, but the power to solve all of our physical and emotional issues, whether it’s health, relationships, career, finances, self-esteem, or something else, is in our hands.

Metaphysical counseling helps us uncover the root of our suffering and address it accordingly. Let’s find out how!

Great for: Transitions, getting to the next level, breaking free of limiting beliefs or blockages, empowering one to believe in themselves, having accountability through your goals

what is metaphysics

Metaphysics is the most abstract branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of existence. In Greek, the word metaphysics means “after the things of nature”.

Metaphysics examines the very nature of reality. It offers explanations for phenomena that cannot be explained by “natural” science or that are “beyond the physical”.

This science studies the individual as a whole, as a physical and spiritual being.

Certain types of chakra healing and other holistic, spiritual healing practices, personal development, and even business coaching are based on metaphysics. They typically include working on physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one’s being to resolve issues that person is facing.

The fundamental law of metaphysics is that every action or decision causes a reaction or an effect. Everything that happens to us (positive or negative) results from past actions or decisions in this lifetime or before the present life.

Similarly, everything we do now will have an effect on our life in the future. This law is better known as karma (action).

It is also believed that we must resolve our life’s issues in this lifetime.

What is metaphysical counseling?

Metaphysical counseling is based on the principle that everyone is sent by the Soul (higher self) to grow at all levels of their being through their life experiences and the lessons they learn in life.

Sometimes referred to as spiritual or transpersonal counseling, it represents a whole person approach – body, mind, and spirit. This type of counseling helps us better understand our life experiences by explaining aspects that our senses cannot perceive.

To put it simply, metaphysical counseling is a form of therapy that empowers us to empower ourselves.

There are many ways metaphysical counseling can take place. This will depend on the practitioner you choose, the kind of spirituality they practice, and the specific issues you may be looking to address.

Some counselors will advise you on the use of crystals for healing, while others will stress the importance of prayer.

This is why it is essential to find a counselor whose beliefs align with yours. Otherwise, your counseling might not have the desired effect.

What can metaphysical counseling help us with?

Metaphysical counseling is a type of holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. This psycho-spiritual approach helps people live a more authentic life by making conscious choices.

It is a self-empowering therapy that gives us the tools to identify and address the imbalances in our belief system that cause conflict and prevent us from achieving success and happiness. These beliefs are so subconscious that we aren’t always aware of them.

With the help of a therapist, people can discover the fundamental causes of their suffering and reach a solution through self-discovery.

It is all about learning to utilize our own self-healing power to reinstate harmony.

This can apply on multiple levels – physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Good metaphysical counseling will address all of those.

What does a metaphysical counselor do?

A metaphysical counselor is capable of healing not only the human mind but the body as well. They can help with various mental issues, including depression, anxiety, and loneliness, or any physical illness, by offering guidance and support to their clients.

A metaphysical counselor can help us navigate our way to health, success, strength, or anything else we desire. They also help clients understand their spiritual nature in this lifetime and beyond.

Each counselor will have their own approach; some will focus on the metaphysical properties of the things around you and how to use those to your benefit, while others will prefer working on your own inner world.

We are all exposed to various positive and negative influences that shape our daily actions, thoughts, and reality. Negative impacts lead to issues like anxiety, negativity, and close-mindedness.

Metaphysical counseling aims to free people from these negative influences and their effects.

Gaining a better understanding of ourselves and our connection to the physical and spiritual world surrounding us with the help of a metaphysical counselor gives us the ability to recognize these harmful influences and build a defense mechanism.

The root of these problems lies deeper than the physical, mental, or emotional sphere. To find a solution, we must target the source. And that lies at the deepest and wisest level of our being – the level of the Soul. Many life situations can only be addressed through the metaphysical laws, and the soul factor is always present. Metaphysical counselors teach us numerous powerful techniques and spiritual principles we can utilize to find the greater good in any challenging situation.

They give us the tools to find a solution to our life issues without a struggle, using less energy in the process.

What to expect from your first metaphysical counseling session

During the first session, the client answers a series of questions regarding their life and the issues that are troubling them.

The counselor listens attentively to understand not only the surface issue but also the stressful beliefs and patterns that are causing the problem.

Further steps depend on the specific type of counseling and the counselor you choose. But after a counseling session, the goal is for clients to experience a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

Not a one-size-fits-all approach

Metaphysics is a versatile form of therapy, so it can be adjusted to the client’s changing needs as the sessions develop.

Therapists use a variety of counseling skills and techniques. They usually determine which method is the most suitable, depending on the client’s condition at that moment.

For example, you may focus on meditation to prepare yourself for success but turn to more conversation-based therapy to deal with anxiety.

As you and your counselor work together, you will find what works best for you personally. This is one of the significant benefits of metaphysical approaches – they are highly flexible.

Metaphysics can be applied to almost any condition and is incredibly helpful with issues regarding:

mental health
challenges in the workplace
relationship issues
dealing with stress and anxiety
understanding emotional reactions
unlocking habitual patterns
