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.

NM. It’s the New Moon of the lunar cycle today. What we are all waiting for! Wait a few days to see the crescent moon. Not today.

New Moon: Moon phase astrology. Tend to a yearning to bust out all over.

NM Moon phase and Emotions

Listen for an inner call to act on a new vision and play with the idea. You may be already acting on some new impulses. Tend to a yearning to bust out all over.

On the positive side, if the inner work was completed last week, you should be feeling strong in your sense of self.

If the inner work was unfinished, you may be feeling extra-vulnerable, or even fearful. Let it be and just notice it.

NM Moon phase and Mind

A sense of understanding your feelings and motivations has a glimmer of possibility. This is even more powerful than the “full moon” experience that everyone talks about.

Emerging victorious from your own style of sorting through a mental pickle brings back a personal sense of control over your own destiny. The process completes itself with a feeling like you just woke up from a long sleep and feel hungry.

Let the day bring what it will and let yourself be okay with it. This week is a period of readjustment to figure out who you are in relation to the world.

Choose the tone you want for the full moon in two weeks while feeling better. Specifically note if you feel differently than you did last week.

NM Moon phase and Work

Set aside routine tasks that can wait. Find a new surge of energy to work on a project that is already in motion.

If you do not have an active project already in motion, then allow free reign to where your attention goes; that is most likely the place where your current interest lies, which is a good indication of what your project should be for this cycle.

Choose the project that you are most excited about, even if it is a stalled portion of an unfinished enterprise, regardless of how old.

Notice that the act of choosing a particular task fuels the ideas for what to do and how to do it.

Lunar hair care Dec 9 – 15 with Sag, Cap and Aquarius

posted in: Lunar Hair Care | 0

DEC 9 WED for SLOW GROWTH. Personally, I would wait until the late afternoon or evening for an appointment to see slower growth after a cut or trim. This last day of the waning moon boosts Sag’s qualities of dry and semi-barren. It’s a mixed astrological bag of aspects for DEC 10 THU, which means it is better to keep to trusted circumstances than try anything new.

DEC 12 SAT alternate for NEW MOON cut or trim. Please consider the day after the New Moon this month if you prefer it for a haircut. I say that because the moon is void-of-course all day on the Dec 11 New Moon. Grab a Saturday appointment instead. Capricorn’s cold and semi-fertile classifications paired with the waxing moon call for faster and thicker growth for the rest of the cycle.

DEC 14 MON and DEC 15 TUE for COLOR. Between these two days, I would pick Monday for coloring if I had a choice for scheduling. I say this because it is my observation that the first day the moon is in a sign has the strongest quality of that sign. Both days take advantage of the waxing moon for absorption and the Aquarius quality of Fixed and wet class.
