WORD FOR THE MONTH
Love, creativity, confidence, courage, release, reflection, freedom, recreation, and children.
Happy New Moon in Leo! We are well within the Eclipse season with this 3rd a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo being the last one for the year. That means right now the Moon is passing in between the Sun and Earth interrupting the flow of energy which gives a sort of cosmic reboot. As a result, New Moons with Eclipses are super-charged New Moons, creating an atmosphere of starting over and refreshing your space. The entire planet is being called to direct our attention inward and to our past. We are to take care of personal business and tie up loose ends before we move on to the next phase of humanity. This may mean its time to confront what’s hidden in our shadows which can be a daunting task. To help, feel with your heart this next month and find that connection with your higher power, whatever that is for you.
Last New Moon in Cancer we stirred up emotions, and this month’s eclipsed New Moon continues this theme with unpredictability, intensity, and impulsiveness. We are living at a time of extremes. Many will say that nothing major happened when the year of the Hopi prophecy came to be in 2012. But in fact, something did happen. There was a shift in the Cosmos that started the beginning of the current global stage we are experiencing. We are 6 years past that cosmic tipping point and the energy is continuing to flow over. People are acting up all over the world. Emotions are heightened everywhere causing reactivity of various natures. If your anxious, nervous, or feel out of control, you’re not alone. We are living at a time of extremes. People all over the world are getting out of that vibration and joining a different one that fits better with their inner truth. Do your best to avoid getting distracted by the surrounding drama, as those on the higher frequency are warriors for the good of the whole, not only the self. This New Moon in Leo is calling us to make a greater commitment to community. It’s time to get out of the tragedy of commons we are living in—we must begin to think about the health of our community, and not just short-term personal gain. Our choices for short term personal gain is harming the planet. Only those that have the talents and skills to do this will survive today’s tumultuous societal energy. To do this you must have a heart of a lion, symbolizing courage and strength. We are fortunate enough to have a Solar Eclipse in Leo this New Moon to help provide this heeded fortitude.
The old paradigm is dying. What looks like destruction is actually the beginning of new life. Just as in the primordial chaos that developed life on this planet, we too will reform society and make sense and order out of the current disorder. We all have a purpose in this transformation. What will jump-start your heart into action? Consider what moves your soul and begin working with it. If you have citrine crystals, keep them close this month, as Leo is the sign most closely related to the Sun, and citrine has always been known as the sun-stone. Citrine carries the energy of the Sun and is energizing, life-giving, and stirs the soul into action. Use Leo’s energy this month to have the will to trust our hearts and find out what it wants and needs.
As always, a drop of wisdom - be a giver, not only a user.
With light and love,
HOW TO MAKE A NEW MOON LIST:
Gather paper and a pen, pencil, marker or other type of writing tool.
Review the focus areas for this month and begin to think about how they apply to your personal and professional life.
Write a list of what your hopes, dreams, goals, priorities, wishes, and prayers are for that moment. Typically no more than 10 is recommended. Be very specific, or extremely vague.
Review last month’s list and revise them on this month’s list, if necessary.
Place your notes somewhere safe and special to you. Some tape them to a window, under a lit candle, or leave them in their notebooks on their desks. Create the space that works for you. Leave it there all month until the next New Moon.
Allow and have faith in the power of inter-connectedness in our universe to manifest your list.
