This lunar eclipse begs the question: have you realized your shadows? As I start to become more conscious, I see the beauty and the beast within me. I see my own fear of abandonment as the ways in which I have abandoned myself. I see the harshness in how others have treated me as the ways I have not been tender with myself. I see the manipulative, narcissistic nature of those I have attracted as the ways in which I, myself, have a man-eating, vampirical nature. The beauty of the beast within you is that once you are aware of it, no one can use it against you. You are empowered and self-actualized. The power struggles and the self-denial dissolves. I do not need permission from anyone to cut out those who don't lend to my personal expansion. The trail of dead behind you only matters if you are looking away from the self. Loving yourself sometimes means losing others. Consider this… Is staying enabling the arrested development of both people involved in the relationship? Are you afraid to rock the boat because you are too entagled in your own limiting beliefs and insecurities? Are you telling yourself lies because the discomfort of change is more painful than the comfort of remaining where you are? This is not a hot girl summer for me. I am purging, detoxing and untethering myself from dysfunctional relationships. But there is grace in my solitude. My boundaries are strengthened and my inner emotional life becomes more fulfilling. And through the intense catharsis, I find the self. 📸: @jessiemariec

I love it when my clients say they can't stop looking at their new brows. 🥰 This client has the cutest birth mark on her right brow and we were sure to keep that visible.
