Hey All! Got New Moon?
I remember when I was in middle school one hot summer day, I was lying in the sun on a towel in my backyard and it was so, so hot! It was a bit before noon, and I had my iced tea, my journal, and my transistor radio (you can Google that!). I looked up in the sky, and to my right, I saw the bright, beautiful, radiant sun! It was scorching hot, full of energy, and I could literally see the beams radiating down to our beautiful Earth. I glanced across the sky to my left, and I saw the faint outline of the moon. The mOOn! And I was like, "OMG! I can see the sun and the mOOn at the same time!"
I had one of my first super duper deep connections with the cycles of nature--here's what I understood for the first time:
Everything is connected.
So, tonight marks the Leo new moon. I don't know if I have written about this before, but I do rituals around the cycles of the moon. So, when the moon is new and it waxes (gets larger . . .) we are supposed to call in the things that we want for our future!
For this moon cycle, I intentionally call in: Peace, trust, acceptance, and letting go of other people's paths . . . Here's a cool sun/moon ritual from a site that I subscribe to each month called MoonCircles:
La LuNa RiTuaL
Happy new moon! It's so magical!
So MuCH LoVe!
