The energy lately has been intense. A cleaning with fire if you will. Coming out the other side has been no less intense but it has been so satisfying. Over the past few months I have let go of childhood trauma and found freedom in slowly letting the real me come to the surface.
While all these changes have been a bit of a shock to my husband they have been well received. I think my fear that he fell in love with the mask would affect how he felt about me but the more he embraced me for who I am the freer I feel to let the cascade fall. The new moon is a chance to open doors in your life.
