New Moon

The moon sits in alignment between the Earth and the Sun during the New Moon. The side of the moon that receives the light from the sun faces away from us, and so the moon is not visible to us during this phase of the moon cycle. The new moon marks the beginning of the lunar cycle and so, it is an opportunity to participate in its energetic gift of initiating the new. Ideas and intentions that are set during the new moon will germinate and take root so that they can bloom at the full moon in two week’s time.

The moon is our most visible reminder of the on-going process of giving birth to ourselves.

I love the potential, possibilities, and invitation of the New Moon. While the Full Moon is about completion, the new moon is about beginnings. Its energy is like that of a ripe, empty womb calling for a new seed to be planted. This fertile welcoming energy invites us to plant our intention so that the greater life can work with us to manifest. When we seed our environment with our intentions during this time, they develop through the coming days and weeks and culminate at the full moon, and find completion.

New Moon in AriesThe Sun and the Moon are both in the same sign at the time of the New Moon. So it is beneficial to attend to the energy that the astrological sign is expressing to understand how this is reflected in our environment. The tides are at their nadir and peak, so the pull on our emotional bodies can be felt more acutely.

A Fresh Beginning

The New Moon is symbolic of beginnings or a second chance. We can use this time to reflect on what we have been holding and find renewal. During this time we can remember that today, we are new, fresh, full of new ideas and that we dare to bring them life. In the words of Anne of Green Gables, “Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”. The New Moon is our tomorrow – with no mistakes.

Holding intention as a way to ground and anchor the very purpose of our being and allow for the universe to act through us, in partnership. An intention is based on trust, and it leaves us open to possibilities larger than our imagination. Here is a simple ritual you can perform to help you ground and remember your intention.

Setting Intention

  • Smudge your house with sage or cedar or light a candle.
  • Meditate. Imagine yourself surrounded by white light. Reflect on what is completed and what is wanting to manifest. Create your intention in your mind.
  • Write it down. Make sure that frame your intention positively. State what you want.
  • Place your written intention on your altar.
  • Walk through your house or apartment and find objects that support your intention. Place them on your altar as a reminder of your intention for the coming days.

Leo Full Moon 2019

The journey through Leo requires the courage and devotion of the Lion, one of the symbols of Leo. We are asked to embody nothing less than the spark of divinity that we are. Once that recognition takes place and we feel our sacredness, we feel the connection to our heart, we become aware of the gifts we have to share with the world.

Full Moon in Cancer and Lunar Eclipse 2019

The Sun entered the sign of Cancer on June 21, the day of the summer solstice. At the time of the full moon on July 16, we also have a partial lunar eclipse at 11:55 am (PDT). The exact moment of the full moon occurs a few hours later at 2:38 pm. Any time we refer to “lunar” we are talking about the emotional body. It’s the moon, the past, the Mother principle. The moon stimulates our sensitivities and as it controls the tides in the oceans it also impacts our mood swings, our feeling nature. We are called then to be mindful
