LQ+5 Moon cycle | Last Quarter plus 5 days | Waning Crescent 7% | Sep 10, 2015
We are poised between the end of the waning dark moon cycle and the New Moon week ahead. Some people find these dark days to be a wondrous and magical time.
How it feels
No doubt you have gained some wisdom during the last few days. I fully understand if this sounds like an understatement to you! Hold these insights close as a dear possession, like an egg protected by a warm, fuzzy blanket in a covered basket, safe and sound. Let the world pass you by. Wait.
Check if you have been sitting in a compost heap of emptiness from the difficult soul-searching time of this Last Quarter Week since last Saturday.
First, acknowledge it and have it be okay.
Second, decide that you can feel hope returning. Embrace the sense of starting a new cycle in a few days. This infusion of hope is the thing that you have been waiting for, but thought could never happen just a few short days ago.
Consider that your sense of importance is but a dust mite on the back of a flea in the larger scheme of things. On the photo of the earth from space, there is only land, water, and clouds.
What to do
- Believe. If you do nothing else today, the one thing to do about your current problem is to believe that an answer to the situation does exist. This practice of belief will keep you in the right frame of mind to recognize the solution when it arrives on your doorstep.
- Play hooky. What a great day to play hooky and take off to the beach or the movies.
- Routine tasks. Most of us need show up to work. If you are tired from the last few days, focus on routine tasks you can complete without a lot of planning and can do without too much thinking. Take care of unfinished business.
If you feel ahead of the game, with hope returning, then start to incorporate the new thinking into your work. You may need to summon up a strong will to work on your next plan. Prepare to release inertia after the New Moon.
What to watch
When worry or despair dominate your thinking, switch to compassion and gratitude instead.
