Dearest Luna, I have felt for many years that I needed to use my creative talents & embark on a career that could possibly involve communication with a very wide audience. Unfortunately – as a teenager & young adult – I allowed those I trusted around me to convince me that I was not pretty enough – talented enough – skinny enough etc. to become a part of the Arts. I know now that they had their own issues & were projecting unhealthy& caustic thoughts towards me. I believed them & now feel that I may have missed the boat. Is it too late for me to become the person I have always dreamed of being? How can I rid myself of all the negative thoughts I still have about myself? How do I love myself? How do I become my authentic self? Thanking you in advance for your time & kind consideration, Paris
Dear Paris, You do indeed have an enormously creative chart, just bursting with talent! And no, it is absolutely not too late to harness these talents and bring them to the world. You were born with Venus conjunct the Sun in Gemini, sextile to Mars in Leo. This is a dynamite combo for writing, theatrical work, or just about anything artistic.
Luckily, the Aug. 14 Leo New Moon triggers this creative combination – offering you a new beginning. Make an altar in the Creativity and Children sector of your home (as you walk in the front door, it’s the middle of the south wall). Place original artwork done by yourself or others, and other playful, colorful items on it. Light a candle at the New Moon and commit to honoring your creativity. Then see what inner promptings and fateful events may occur over the following two weeks.
Pick up a copy of Julia Cameron’s book The Vein of Gold, and do the exercises she suggests. You might also want to try EFT (google Emotional Freedom Technique to find many helpful videos) which will help you release old fears and blocks. And, get a doll that resembles you at an early age. Talk to her, cry with her, ask her what she needs. Do this every day and you will truly begin to heal the past. Best of luck to you! Luna’s agent, Simone Butler
