Today we celebrate the dark moon energy. The final days before the New Moon where we reflect, contemplate, and go inward. I am always low energy during this time, my body is intuitively trying to guide me into quiet contemplation. I have been struggling with a lingering cold or flu that keeps coming and going. I feel like it is a continuance of the purging, the dying, ending of some old energy.
So today we keep it simple. Reflect back at the New Moon, what were your goals and intentions for this moon cycle? What came about during the process? It was a time of new beginnings and beginning to labour new life and simultaneously go through death of the old this past month. It was intense, lots of energy, energy dying and energy coming alive. Phewf!
So reflect, take in, absorb and release at this dark moon. Maybe go back and explore what we were is process of birthing and and hold your belly while we are still laboring. Write to it, talk to it, sit with it, hold it and talk it through the birth process. What does it need from you?
What has the labouring felt like?
What has hindered the labour?
What have been the labour pains?
Is the name of this new “creative baby” clear?
Do you feel like you know what you are birthing or is it a surprise when it comes?
A Simple Ritual:
Light a candle, sit in silence, run a bath. Just do something where you can sit with your intuition, the voice of the Divine Feminine within you. Set a timer 15 minutes if you must and hide out in the bathroom. Just do something. Doodle, write and allow the life (actual or creative) inside you to speak to you. Let it guide you in the birthing process. For me I doodle and draw images that come and write. Get quiet, listen and hear the silent whispers, images and instincts guiding you.
Maybe you want to draw upon some tarot cards, angel cards or power cards to guide you in this time as well. Just connect to the Divine in silence, prayer and visioning.
Align your energy with Grandmother Moon and see your dreams, desires and visions manifest.
And so it is.
