My morning mental capacity was used up by brainstorming Halloween costumers. It’s not my absolute favorite holiday but it’s a chance to dress up that I refuse to miss. I love when I have multiple plans so I can have two costumes, tailored to the event… I have no shame in looking cute and not 100% authentic. I’m so torn between one that’s probably going to be on every other little girl and college coed, and another character that no one will get. Who knows what I’ll end up wearing!
On to more timely things…
September 19 “the new moon will arrive in Virgo, 27 degrees. All new moons open a portal of energy in which you have two weeks to take action.” (AstrologyZone)
I’m in manifesting mode tonight! Virgo is about healing the mind, body and soul. Being kind to ourselves and knowing we have the answers if we listen to ourselves is power. (Intuitive Astrology)
It’s appropriate that I pulled the Ace of Swords from Rock Star Crystals in NYC. This card is about mental clarity. Exactly what I’ll need for this week. It also stands for courage. In short, this is the meaning: “Feel the fear and do it anyway.” Aces trump all other cards in a reading, giving it a positive vibe.
Last new moon I went to a meditation and wrote down some intentions before we meditated. It was around 10am but it actually doesn’t matter since the moon’s energy is there regardless of day or night. Then we went to brunch and discussed our individual experiences. That’s my kind of a day date.
“Happily, the perfect new moon will arrive in Virgo on September 19, and all the little planets will be there to greet the magnificent moon and her partner, the Sun. This new moon will unlock your luck being brought from the five heavenly bodies clustered there. The moves you make quickly, in the ten days following that new moon, will color the six months to follow.”
“A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. The new moon on September 20 is the first new moon since the total solar eclipse on August 21. Eclipses mark the beginning of a six-month phase with certain goals or aims. Each new moon within the eclipse cycle represents a new stage of development of your long-term goals.”
You can be an over-achiever and do an entire ritual if you please. Try this. Or, you can just jot down some dreams you wish to create. The moon’s working OT for you so you don’t have to go to a ton of trouble!
This is one of the best descriptions I’ve read describing the difference between the New Moon and the Full Moon. “The new Moon has a more inward feel, has a void or empty quality, and therefore can be frightening to those not comfortable with uncertainty. Can you learn to trust the dark? It’s the moment when the old passes away and the new is not yet here. That’s why it’s a powerful time for sending out your prayer, wishes, desires to the Universe.” – source
