A blessed New Moon to everyone on this Moon’s day. New Moons are a time for endings, beginnings, and rest. Taking time to listen to your stirring, restless spirit. What does it communicate to you? Perhaps you are disconnected from living an authentic life? The Wood Horse year has proven to be a challenge for many. Wood ads fuel to the fire. Wood also reminds us to find our roots in order to stay grounded.
Mercury, ruler of Virgo, longs for us to communicate and network with others. If you aren’t sharing your authenticity you are not fulfilling your highest purpose. You are the piece of the puzzle the world needs! Don’t hide in the shallows- come into the light. Honor yourself and others. Don’t be critical, be caring. Nourish and nurture others. Sing their praises, love them deeply, and above all seek peace. We are all human beings. We are all deserving of love.
Today’s New Moon is the time to stop engaging in habits which are no longer serving you. Especially habits which are bad for your health! Set those Camels down, walk away slowly. Avoid those fast-food cheeseburgers.. Pick up an organic black bean burger instead. Drink more clean water, nix that toxic soda! Take a nap, give a hug, share a smile. It’s the little things in life that matter most.
Today is a good time to practice forgiveness for self and others. Don’t beat yourself up about things in your past. The past is the past. What did you learn from it? Just let it go!
If you’re feeling bitter, critical, angry, or annoyed ask yourself why. Why are you holding onto things which hold you back? How does this serve your life? Does being unhappy do anything for you?! Nope, sure doesn’t! Withdraw the poisonous thoughts from your mind. Words are real. Thoughts are real. It’s not called spelling for no reason! Begin building habits which will nourish and enrich your life instead! Write down your dreams. Claim your power. Ask yourself what you’re waiting for. You are the key to your riches. Use this New “Moonkey” to fulfill your highest desires. Let go of those things which hold you back.
Virgo calls us to ritual, communication, and cleansing. Take care of your digestive track. The New Moon is a good time to start a cleanse. It’s a great time to get rid of parasites both internally and spiritually. Set your wizard phone down- pick up a book. Trade your stress for meditation. You can only vibrate at the level you set for yourself.
Neptune is currently opposing the Sun and Moon at Virgo 2. So you may feel the need to run and hide. Don’t succumb to Alcohol or drugs in order to cope with stress. Take the time to breath and meditate. The symbol for Virgo 2 reminds me of the Tarot Hanged Man.
A man hanging upside down from a tree.
Out of phase with the personal ego-mind, in phase with the greater laws, you are absolutely forced to stay put, to sit tight, to watch and listen and say and do as little as possible. A fair witness to what is happening all around, with no personal vantage point. Being a truth vessel–perfectly designed to hold the truth and nothing but. Uncomprehending of perversity and corruption, and naive to all radical distortion, but you are surpassingly aware of what is good and what is true and of the ways in which the greater laws are being played out in this world. Gifted in observing and appreciating how the Divine Will prevails, how the light penetrates the darkness. Simply there to be with the constructive and the upbuilding energies and forces. The pure idealist in the perfect position to be strictly transparent. (from Inside Degrees, click text for website)
We are light. We are made from star-matter. We are the expression of the universe. The connection of our highest-self to our star family is available at any time. Today we are reminded of this truth. We are called upon to share love and light with our hurting world. It’s more imperative than ever we become who we were born to be. What were you born to do? What is your highest purpose? Are you serving others or serving yourself? Are you putting the greater-good ahead of yourself or are you an ego-driven maniac? Today you may find glimmers of truth in the darkness. You will see magick in the day-to-day. Let the light of love flow through you.
