And proving to ourselves, that we can do great things, is the path to building a solid foundation for confidence to arise.

As this Full Moon culminates in Libra, it comes to an opposition to the Sun and Mercury retrograde. This retrograde cycle is giving you a chance to reframe your perception of what it means to survive, and uncovering abilities, talents, or resources that you need to actualize self-sufficiency.
