Year: Solstice | Sun: Cancer | Moon Cycle: NM+1 in Cancer
Can the moon cycle make any difference in my life, or yours? The question is a good one. Along with it comes another natural question: haven’t we progressed beyond the need to live with the concept of the lunar rhythm? Hey, we’ve got apps now!
The fact is, we need the moon cycle now more than ever.
It’s a popular consensus that we no longer need a system that is generally scoffed at as folklore and ancient history. Try asking anyone you see today what phase the moon is in. Likely you will be looked at as if you have two horns on your head and you will definitely not get asked out to lunch.
The moon cycle bridges the chasm between human and being by providing a physical experience with a spiritual message.
We see the moon in the sky for a physical experience, and spiritual insights are developed within through the cycle. For some it may be true that we no longer need the moon cycle, and I would like it to be true: to be so physically and spiritually advanced that the need to follow the moon cycle is no longer required. Others of us are looking for answers while we attempt to make it through the day unscathed. We are wondering what our spiritual path is, what meaning is there is for us in this world, what more is there than the next new technology?
It is possible that humans can become truly wonderful spiritual people, capable of peace, love, telepathic communication (currently manifesting as Tweeting), and masters of natural energies. Our brains and pituitary glands have evolved to the point that many of us have the capability to understand spiritual concepts, however contradictory that many sound.
Do we leave behind the spiritual connection to our physical home made up of Sun, Earth, Moon and Stars, in the race for technological superiority? No. We are called “human beings” because we are defined with two parts: physical (human) and spiritual (being). To me that means we are spirits having a human experience on earth.
And living on earth means we resonate with all that interacts with it, including the moon. This week the message is New Moon: imagine the possibilities. The biggest secret about the moon cycle is that it only activates when we engage the process.
