And a Hunter's Moon // 10.3.22
A new + beautiful way to experience Mondays
I am free to lead with my heart.
“Heart coherence” is the experience of life through an alignment between the heart, mind, and emotions.
In today’s mettā, visualize your brow chakra, your heart chakra, and your root chakra all coming into alignment as you breathe in, letting the power from those three chakras rest below your breath (right under your lungs). Pull that energy up to your heart and breathe from there, allowing your breath to “come from” the heart.
(This may make more sense if you press play, listening to today’s meditation instead of reading it.)
By practicing this regularly, your experiences of joy, appreciation, love, and delight will feel whole and connected, instead of mixed with fear, denial, or skepticism.
So glad you’re here.

October’s Full Moon is on Sunday, and it’s commonly called the Hunter’s Moon. It is also the first Full Moon after the equinox and the first Full Moon of autumn. This moon was a signal to hunters to get to it—because soon, come winter, animals are scarce. On the eve of the Full Moon, and possibly the day before and after, it may appear large and orange, due to its position in the sky.
The Farmer’s Almanac (where I get a lot of my moon information) has a nice video on the link between this Full Moon and the upcoming October holiday, Samhain.

Your Tarot Reading, Revealed!
Card 1: Smoky Quartz // Six of Wands
An overactive mind isn’t necessarily negative, but you do need to turn your spinning wheels into focus. You have some great ideas, smart ones (see the laurel wreath on the rider’s head—this signifies intellect) but they’re getting lost due to your excitement and passion (the wands, in fact, represent this). You need to figure out how to blend your creativity with a logical and strategic plan. To do this, gather your (human) resources. This rider is not alone. Who can you connect with to help you strategize? Who can you talk to to help you focus on one step at a time? You may be the leader of your own life, but don’t be afraid to ask for specific help from others.
Card 2: Carnelian // Strength
Go gently! Your project needs you to work with it like this figure is working with the lion—calmly, courageously, and with a little vulnerability. Instead of powering forward and demanding success, see what you can accomplish with gentle forward movement. In terms of symbolism, the 8 symbol above her head represents infinity. At some level, you’ve done this before. You’ve successfully brought an idea through to planning and executing and into the world. Take lessons and successes from the past and reuse them now.
Card 3: Jade // Page of Pentacles
The Page of Pentacles is a manifesting card, with a twist. It’s a reminder that you are still a bit of a novice. You have some learning to do. So, in terms of love, feel free to make all the lists, vision boards, and ideal images of your next relationship or friendship that you’d like, but what you’re really here to do is learn. Check in with your closest friends and mentors. How do they approach love? How do they feel about themselves, and how do they project their selves to others? What does love look and feel like to them? Focus on what you are looking for by learning from others.
