How out of balance Aries qualities can manifest physically & embodying change

Aries governs the head, adrenaline, sight, brain, pineal gland and optic nerve

When these parts are out of balance here are some physical ways it can manifest that become habitual

Aries – Out of Balance Health Conditions

Developing an awareness of how to focus and enhance ones lifestyle can change the story of these conditions.  Cultivating this awareness to focus attention on whole function on the inside and expand it to go beyond ones perspective and beliefs to include physical, mental and emotional functions.

In the following figure the parts of  the human functional process are separated into visual bodies to make them easier to identify.

Bodies of Function

Currently understanding of human function seems to lack the knowledge of how each body of  function is inter-related.  This creates a gap of in ones ability to regulate and balance functions leading to system malfunctions.

For example, if someone is totally focused upon physicality with strong cultural beliefs of self-image, their personal mental and emotional health may suffer.  They may act out false self-esteem through aggression in relationships creating escalating conflict. 

Since 2007 Renee has employed methods to support the creation of personal balance and inner harmony at home, work or at play.  They integrate the Bodies of Function whether the gateway session  is focused upon movement,  relationships, or environment.   This concept easily translates into individual coaching, mentoring, and  group learning events.

More in-depth learning about the Body of Functions is incorporated into the Intermediate Awareness through Communication teachings and deepened in Intensive Embodied Mentoring Programs

Guidance through simple change agent action steps can harness ones power of  learning to retrain mental, emotional and physical behaviours.

   The major benefit is taking one’s power back by cutting through the materialism  that gives it away.

Zodiac for Daily Goals to Inspire Intuition 

Moon Zodiac for daily personal goal setting 

The moon affects changes as it passes through the zodiac constellations that Astrologists believe influences our life.  Its gravitational pull makes it the second strongest influence after the sun and Astrologers use the path of the moon as a guide to explore human personality and activities.   

Scroll down under Astrological signs for 3 step exercise to integrate these signs into daily use and to read more on why they are an effective integration tool that can support understanding the labyrinth of your mind and those of others to improve relationships.


Renee began exploring the moons influence on the essence of human emotions and their reactions to certain situations as a way to broaden the perspective of what her students/clients were learning to lighten up the process of inner change.  The moon can influence human creativity, imagination and ability to attract other people and it is a great guide for cutting through the constructs of black and white (right and wrong) thinking that lacks mindfulness, understanding and empathy.  This personal journey into the labyrinth of ones mind can create an emphatic understanding into the labyrinth of another’s mind.

Moon Zodiac daily goal exercise

to inspire intuition

A daily 3 step exercise Renee recommends as a template for increasing a mindful connection between emotional wellness and ones focus of attention.  A shift in ones focus of attention can increase understanding, clarity and intuition and reduce destructive reactions inside oneself or with others.  Actions can become mindful and be constructive versus destructive.  Try these 3 steps as a daily exercise using the 12 astrological moon signs as a guide.

  1. Start by reading the daily zodiac sign influence and choose up to 3 actions for the day.  This can be done in the morning, or evening before.  (If it is done the evening before you may be pleasantly surprised by the difference in your motivation upon rising.)
  2. As you take actions in the day pause a moment before you check it off your mental to do list.  Begin to notice any sensations that you may have and remember to make a mental note of it.
  3. At the end of the day stop to check in to your daily action plan. Reflect upon the feelings of celebration for completed tasks or the feelings of regret for uncompleted ones.
    1. Notice the felt sense differences between the two; celebrations and regrets.
    2. Try to cut through any stories you are telling yourself that try to justify why you did or didn’t complete your task.  Instead,  “*Focus your attention on what your emotions are and begin to observe what you are feeling instead of reacting to them.” 
    3. Be constructive and put names to your emotions. Start replacing destructive judgments.  This builds a mental-emotional feelings vocabulary that is an essential to a  mindful-heart connection in Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s model of Nonviolent Communication.
 *This is one missing step in our cultural social emotional education.  However it is never too late to learn how to become more mentally and emotionally resilient and flexible.

Learning  to be in your feelings is the start of retraining your mind to be curious about them.

The next step is to identify the root cause of the feelings inside that you are beginning to name and become more comfort with exploring the environment they are creating from which you act from.  To learn more on how to make this connection consider an upcoming workshop with Renee or an on-going dialogue series.  Go to her calendar or list of communication workshops for more information, or connect with her for a personal one on one for those difficult events.
