This new moon pierced my heart this New Year's Day, as it set, resting near Venus and Mars, on the horizon.
called me to reflect on these times of wisdom and transformation.
There is much to be conscious of.
It has special meaning to me. I see the reflections of it in the sky, and feel its pulse deep within me. I recognize the pulse of life we all must feel, just as Venus or Mars must touch most of us now, certainly those of us who saw it. But within the intangible, it is there for all of us. It is a transitory year. A time of choice and reflection. Indeed, it is that time of the year. The turning within of the dream time, taking time to reflect on who we are and what our purpose is. A time to manifest our seeds of intention for the coming year, ready to plant them as the sun warms the Earth into Spring. Imbolc, in just a few weeks, is the turning point toward that spring, when the Earth’s heart begins to melt under the sun’s embrace, her juices begin to rise as sap in the trees, reddening their faces.
Much is on the line for each of us. We have seen it in the external world. Are we honoring it in the internal?
This is a time to honor the inevitable flow of life, the invisible cord which weaves it way through each of us, and binds us to the Whole. Do we honor it? Do we recognize and take the time to be with ourselves and each other, or are we thrown astray by the appearances of the world that shroud us in disbelief, but are not the eternal truths, and, are not so real? The appearance of illusion is upon us. The shadow kingdom would like to throw us its veil. Do not be illusioned by those not standing in their own truths.
I always loved the Grandmothers voice, as she speaks of the appearances. What appears real, what appears as obstacles; they are just appearances, just shadows, and apparitions. They are shadows, like those we love to see upon the moon, reminding us to look deeper, within.
The Light stands before us. We can choose.
or Light. What is your perception?
What do you focus upon?
Astrologically, this is a powerful time. I share a few words here though you can find so much from key astrologists on line:
A few key insights from the pages of MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights, whom I always find full of joy and depth..
“..this… NEW MOON ...offers… us the space to pause and intentionally prepare to begin a New Year.
from CHAD WOODWARD from the Kosmic Mind:”
“Modern society attempts to create the illusion that everything is under control ….This… comes with a price. The price is immense repression of our primal nature and the subjugation of any reality or viewpoint which threatens the status quo.
“This New Moon in tropical Capricorn helps us to see the structures and routines in our lives through different eyes, which will help us to gain clarity about how we fit into the larger whole.”
“…this is a moment to step back, reflect, and take your time in considering your present options and decisions.
“Every New Moon is a collective moment of lower energy conducive for healing, rest, and meditation…”
..use this time to carefully review the details…”
…alone time will help you focus
…take notice of your inner needs first.
..gain perspective about the past year
