In the best of times, a Full moon in Sagittarius is cause for a little...trepidation. Unless you are a Sag, or other fire sign, a full moon can reveal some shallow and impulsive tendencies.
But I don’t think I need to tell you that this is not exactly the best of times. With Mercury going retrograde in just a couple days, and this Sag moon kicking off eclipse season, we could be full of self doubt and insecurity. You know the dreaded Imposter Syndrome. And that could trigger an inability to commit.
To help writers and creators during this weird time, here’s a quick exercise to help get to the bottom of any obstacles that are keeping you from creating. All you need is a pen and a piece of paper.
Full moons are a time of releasing and shedding, letting go of energies, practices, or habits that don't serve us anymore.
Guided writing exercise
Take a few slow, deep breaths. Try to inhale for eight counts and exhale for eight counts. Nice and steady. Imagine that you are sitting on a riverbank watching your thoughts float downstream like leaves. Watch them drift by, completely detached from their outcome. Imagine that your future self is sitting on the opposite bank of the river. Write down two things that your future self has accomplished and that you are currently avoiding. This could be revising a piece, starting a new art project, doing research etc. Next write down two things that are keeping you from committing to doing that work. Fear? Don’t know where to start? Your kids' schedules are insane?
Take another deep breath and recognize that you have overcome larger obstacles than these. You are resourceful. Imagine yourself committing to overcoming your fears. Imagine yourself recommitting to your art. Write down two actions you can take today.
