The way you are, the way your environment around you is, the relationships in your life, your work, your health – all reflect the choices you have made, and you may take all the credit for how it is. Unusually, this month’s Full Moon is the Harvest Moon too, and so more than ever this period is a reflection of the seeds you have sown and the abundance you have earned.

The Harvest Moon by CR Mackintosh[/caption]
There is no point in blaming others for your circumstances, easy and comforting though it is to do so if you have financial pressures, or if you are in pain: others may contribute, reinforcing your wish to learn sometimes hard lessons about abusive behavior, perhaps, betrayal or rejection, but you have opted to have them in your life for as long as you, and they, choose, and they can be your greatest teacher. You can decide, too, when the cycle of hardship becomes one of fruition.
Sometimes your human mind sets up a resistance to the intent of your soul, confusing and inhibiting the opportunities for change and growth; sometimes what you think is your choice is nothing of the sort, as you tell yourself you will lose weight today or leave your partner tomorrow – and it never happens because the risk is too great or the present reality is preferable to the effort that is necessary. It does not matter, except to you, for that is your choice.
This esoteric Libran Full Moon of October with its compelling theme, “I Choose the Way” is a perfect time to ponder upon your life as it is today, a reflection of all the choices you have made not just in this present lifetime but in all your previous lifetimes. Is it as you wish it to be? What would you like to change? How can you do it? Are there stepping stones you can find to help you achieve your choice? How is your internal world? If you harbour blame or bitterness towards certain individuals for their impact on your life, you may wish to reclaim those emotions and accept the reality that your life is as you have chosen to have it, and that they are helping you to achieve your aims.
This is a perfect time, too, to reflect upon the state of the world as we see the beauty of the Planet, seeded by God, disfigured by cruelty and brutality in Las Vegas, Myanmar and so many other parts of the world. The human race bears full responsibility for the violence, hatred and abuse that is so prevalent, but the seeds of change are growing in the new light, and soon will flourish, with your help.
This Harvest Full Moon, choose your way well, consciously and wisely, and kindly too – and Spirit will help you, every step of the way.
