This is the first New Moon of the year. Can I get a woot woot? This month has felt tough. We have been clearing the emotional and psychic debris of 2016. For me this has even manifested in my whole family being sick…pneumonia, bronchitis, a chronic cough. I have had little to no sleep in weeks and it is tough. I have been brought to tears a few times only to inhale in the moment for what it is…a moment and keep going step by step, hour by hour. It’s raw and vulnerable and it has shredded me of anything else but what is at the moment. Haven’t we all felt this in some way or another. The fear, the shock, the changes that are occurring, we feel powerless at times. But take some breaths and move inward towards your power. See, summon and call forward what is stirring to come out. There is so much to be hopeful for, so much healing is happening.
This New Moon feels like a New Beginning in the year 2017 (Also Chinese New Year). This is a number one year in numerology, new cycles, new beginnings… a change in a new direction, a first step into something new. This is a time of hope, a time of belief that the impossible can indeed be possible. That change can happen, that even though we are moving through tough changes, great healing is occurring and more strength, more voicing, more power and belief in ourselves is building. It is building like a great tidal wave ready to shift the tides of the planet. Women and men are awakening like never before, we are being called to get louder and stronger at quicker rates.
This New Moon is calling us inward, to soak up our vision of the new we want in the world. Many are being called into change…a change of career, a change or relationship, a change in what we tolerate and don’t tolerate, a change of our habit of being silent in to using our voice. I even had a wild thought about what working in the political world might be like, knowing that we need more women in this arena. This may not be my path, or it may who knows, but many women are being called towards such and this is wonderful news for all of us!!!
New Moon Ritual:
As always set the mood…candles..tea…wine…incense…music…quiet…whatever floats your boat. Take some deep breaths and close your eyes. Go to an inner place of power, a place where you feel strong and confident and hold yourself up high. Breathe it in…what do you see? Where are you? What colors are there? What’s the climate? What’s the feel? For me it’s a sacred fire at Ghost Ranch, it’s pitch black out except the bright orange and yellow flames of the fire. Allow your loving and kind guide to come and give you picture or words or symbols that represent the vision of the life you want. See it, inhale it, feel yourself being it.
Create a collage or just free flow words for two minutes and see what shoots out on the paper from heart to hand. We are all part of this eclectic puzzle changing, inspiring and moving change forward so honor your soul’s call. Now is the time. Abundance and prosperity are around the corner.
Happy New Moon and Chinese New Year…it is the year of the Rooster 🙂
Blessings and love friends.
As always, if you feel called I’d be so delighted if you FOLLOWED MY BLOG or The Women’s Tribe Facebook Page.
