What’s your plan for the Aug 21 solar eclipse?

Totality is at 11:30 am on Monday, August 21, 2017.

Aug 21 2017 Total Solar Eclipse - What is Changing? Riding Moon Cycles

See the NASA maps to find where the total eclipse can be viewed across the US states. I’ll be about 200 miles south of the line, but I still expect a pretty good show.

Eclipses are exciting and don’t happen that often. The last time a total solar eclipse could be viewed all across the center of the US from coast to coast was June 8, 1918.

For a solar eclipse like this one, the lineup is Sun, Moon, and Earth. This can only happen on a New Moon. We are standing on Earth and the Moon comes between us and the Sun.

Sun ———- Moon ———- Earth

Outside —– Inside ———- Me

For moon phase imagery, you might say the Sun is shining a light on our deep Moon issues so we can see them. What is brewing in your universe? Perhaps what has been lurking in the dark on the inside can now be looked at.

Eclipse time is an opportunity to take a perspective on your personal year at the very least. Consider plans and results between these dates:

Feb 2017
Aug 2017
Jan 2018

The common factor of these three times is Change.

What has changed since February? What are the results of the choices made then?

What change now will set up a new result for January?

There are no right or wrong answers, only choices. And opportunities.

Choose to change and experience a new result. Or decide not to change and you may get another chance in a future cycle. Or be forced into a change.

Either way, the ripples will extend from three to six months.

I like to consider what it was like in the past when our Ancestors had no electronics and it was a simpler time. An eclipse would be a momentous event, even scary and ominous.

Viewing an eclipse is a chance to have a sense of the relationship of humans to the greater environment. We live in a whole universe, standing on a blue planet, surrounded by other heavenly bodies. It’s a beautiful and awe-inspiring concept. I hope you make time to enjoy it.

And I’m so glad you stopped by today!

New Moon Friday June 23 and a Secret

posted in: Moon cycle | 0

 

Hello! I want to take a few moments to thank all of you who have ordered my book “Moon Days.” It is such a pleasure to share what I have learned about the moon cycle and I am grateful to those folks who agreed to take a peek at the lunar system for their own use.

Stick with me for a minute and I’ll reveal a moon cycle secret.

Moon Cycle Last Quarter + 5 days and a Secret.

LAST QUARTER + 5 DAYS

On this LQ+5 Last Quarter plus 5 days, June 22, there are several items listed in Moon Days that resonate with me today.

“Use daily priority lists.” This may sound like a simplistic thing to say for any day, but it means more during Last Quarter week than any other week of the cycle. While the emotional body and spirit body are making adjustments from the last cycle and looking forward the next one, this advice keeps everyday tasks moving along while the inner musings are processing. Lists ground my day during this time.

Here’s another one: “How It Feels: A shred of hope returns. The new cycle begins in a few short days. Treasure the recent wisdom gained.” I am also strongly identifying with this stage of the cycle. I’ve participated in a major transition during the last week and I do feel that shred of hope for better days ahead. I need hope to survive or I wither in negative emotions.

These are only a few of the entries for this moon day. I purposely made them short to reveal the most important points of the day and allow for the most personal interpretation. Each person will take a unique perspective from it. My shred of hope is very different from yours!

NEW MOON FRIDAY

Now we are poised at the threshold of the New Moon on Friday June 23.

In the “Moon Days” ebook or paperback, I especially like the image for the New Moon day: “The seed swells with the rain.” The cycle eases through the phases. Some people will be ready to act and others of us will be simply percolating with new ideas.

New Moon Day: “What to Do: Let the day be okay. Notice where attention goes. Choose the tone for the cycle. Tend a New Moon ritual.” There is no demand of activity for this day, only the opportunity to acknowledge it.

One of the Journal Topics for the New Moon day is “Compared to last week, today I feel like…” I believe it is important to take some perspective on occasion. Sometimes it feels like the world is too hard and then it all changes during the next part of the cycle. This helps me through the hard times knowing that the lunar rhythm will carry on and I will move along with it.

One of the secrets to enjoying the tremendous benefits of the lunar rhythm is that the cycle engages when you decide to participate.
