This New Moon feels like a welcome celebration, doesn’t it? Last moon/month was INTENSE! The month was filled with crisis, change, upheaval, chaos, things falling apart and reaching a point of climax. We had no choice but to change out of old, wounded, uncertain patterns of our past, life brought forth change, growth, endings, destruction, etc. so we could begin anew or at least start upon a new path, a new pattern, a new, loving, authentic way of being. Bridges collapsed into the old way of life and this month is about allowing new roads to take shape and reveal themselves. We are planning out new actions, new life, a taking the first step or two in beginning this re-birth and restructuring.
This moon/month is about doing things a little different. Trying new things, taking action, responsibility, and finally addressing what we have always postponed ourselves in addressing. We shine the flashlight on our dark bits and look at them so we can heal them. This will take courage, vulnerability and strength but you have those qualities within you….yes you do!
It feels like even though the crisis and chaos/ peak moments have occurred and shattered what was, we are now in the process of planning out how to take action to rebuild, restructure, re-do some old ways. This is a great thing on the soul level, even though it may feel like total crap. This is truly a healing time.
NEW MOON RITUAL.
On this New Moon in Taurus I invite you to throw a New Moon party. It can be a party of one or like for me, a party of 3, the hubby, my son and myself. The intention, to indulge in some physical senses and luxuries. So after all the tough stuff last moon, now is the time to nurture ourselves and feed ourselves love and enduring self-care energy as we trek upon new territory. Why not make it a magical evening, a date night with the Moon if you will.
So, tonight have a luscious meal, buy a lovely bottle of vino, or make some dessert. Take a walk or hike, move your body, do some yoga, go for a bike ride…really ignite your physical senses. Celebrate this moon like it were a marker of your new road, new chapter, new way of life. Somehow, some way, have some conscious, New Moon fun. List some ideas you have, some actions you will take this month to move forward into new patterns and out from the old. It might be setting boundaries, or finally signing up for a class or exploring ways to leave a relationship. Whatever it is, list it, put it into consciousness, even it’s a simple exploration or evaluation of what you are still unsure about.
But tonight, you celebrate. Celebrate the beginning of a new cycle. You made it through last month. Indulge your senses. Toast the moon, toast each other, toast yourself. Taste the cake, feel the bubbles in the bath, let the wind sweep though you like it were a caress from the Goddess herself.
Tonight…all you need is enjoyment! Find your way there and share 🙂
Happy New Moon.
