Happy New Moon and the beginning of the New Astrological Year in Aries. Woot woot. The first New Moon in Aries starts another cycle around the zodiac and I always look forward to this moon. It feels like another New Year feeling, a fresh beginning, a new clean slate. Spring has begun to wake up and the ice in the river is cracking and the water is slowly starting to flow again. We are waking up from hibernation and frozen-ness (I know not a word lol). Life is beginning Her new cycle from death to birth once again.
This winter has been tough on me. My family has been hit with a ton of sickness. I sit here writing this with a current bout of pneumonia. I have lost my sense of power this winter and it has showed up in my lungs, it has come as grief…as I can’t catch my breath remembering.
A circumstance of change threw me into a situation that I hate. It brought me to my knees and back into painful trauma memories. I felt like I was barely surviving only treading water and minimally keeping a float for months. I have waited for the circumstance to change so I can get my power back, my well-being, and my sense of stability. But the reality it is not changing for awhile. So I must find my power again on my own. I feel like I must rummage through a dark field and look for large gems that fell out of my soul, pick them up, put them in my basket and bring them back home.
So here’s the deal, this is a time of transformation and change and turning of the wheel and season. Life is literally going to re-emerge in front of our eyes.
So plan 1…radical self-care. I must strengthen my physical body. I have 10 weeks left in this change of life and I am making weekly self-care goals and plans. I’m arranging baby-sitters and potential outing/gathering opportunities. This is part of gathering my soul marbles and gems back into my heart and body.
Plan 2…I have two goals that I want to complete and finish this season. I will plan goals for this as well…one of them to start is to get ink for my printer as step one! Its creating space and time and for the next ten weeks I feel called to focus. Plan. Start. Do.
What are your plans?
ARIES NEW MOON RITUAL:
Light those candles, ignite your incense, invite over a friend or two and get out your paper and pens. It’s time to dream, to go to the depths and beyond, the other worlds and invoke our lives with NEW LIFE. So here we go…
Imagine that you are sitting across from A Wise and Loving Guide, a fabulous Intuitive/Seer and she pulls out a tarot deck. She asks you flip as many cards as you feel you need. What cards do you flip? This is a unique deck, perhaps a never before seen deck and it has an image or word meant specifically to you. There is no right or wrong, just what is. Flip a card and ask the Wise and Loving Guide to give you a message with each one. Just let what come, come and see what is there. What messages do the cards have for you?
Ready, set go…write it out just float to the clouds with your pen.
At the end of your reading with this Wise, Intuitive, Loving Guide gives you a rock with a symbol on it. What is the symbol? What does it mean for you? Grab it and pull it inward into your heart. Soak in the blessing.
Grab a marker and a rock and make it come alive!!!
When you are done, imagine returning to your own body. Grab a stone or rub your feet on the ground.
Happy Astrological New Year, and a year FULL OF LIFE and JOY!! And so it is.
