Happy New Moon friends. This moon is such an interesting one! Saturn finishes its time in Sagittarius and moves into Capricorn after three years. So what have you been working on or dealing with these last three years ? Are you ready to find completion and healing in that area? Me tooo 🙂
This time feels like a reset… a restart… a refreshing new force of change and light. It’s a reboot. A life affirming gift of change and surprise. We have struggled with some hardships the last while….have we learned the lessons wrapped in the struggle?
The last three years I have dealt with a health issue and I’ve been waiting for it to rectify. Well it’s looking like it’s my new norm, something I must embrace and life with in a new way. I must create new lines, new boundaries, new and more balanced ways of operating in the world with it rather than having it separate from me and waiting for it to disappear. That is what this moon is all about.
The last couple of months I’ve tried to pretend I was mostly healed. I’ve had a sort of denial about this illness and pretended in a sort of way that I was getting better, even recovering completely from it. It’s took this mercury retrograde and three hospital visits to realize that denial is not the way. Returning to the old way or old life is not possible. New ways of being, new life affirming and nurturing mantras need to be created. A new and more balanced way of being. Not a return to the old and a denial of the challenges and chaos that have occurred the last few years. The challenges and changes have had purpose and we need to own this and celebrate this. The dark brings light! And that is what we will celebrate and see in this New Moon, the change of Saturn from Sagittarius into Capricorn, mercury returning direct and a soon to be Winter Solstice.
I chose a card for this Moon and this is what emerged. The Sacred Space card from the Sacred Path Cards from Jamie Sams.
“The Sacred Space card insists on respect for possessions, ideas, homes, and persons of others. This also applies to demanding it for the Self. Mark your territory. Respect yourself so that others will see that reflection in themselves and in how they deal with you. Be willing to say no.
Sacred space means that you consider your body, feelings, and possessions sacred and will not allow others to abuse them. Only invite those who have earned the right into your Sacred Space. You are the one who sets up how other people treat you through how you treat yourself….
If you allow others to be destructive in your Sacred Space, on some level you don’t have the guts to be disliked. It is not important to be liked by others, but it is important to be able to live with yourself. Happiness begins within in.”
I know for me that how I treat my highest Self and body is reflected in my health.
So on this new Moon light a candle, create a sacred space, set the mood and make a list of new mantras, new ways of being, new acts of power and love to yourself. What commitments and affirmations do you pledge to carry with you into this shift and change and opportunity for a new beginning ?
And so it is my friends.
Happy new beginnings and healing.
