New Moon Phase: beginning, initiation, seeding, make a wish or set an intention
We continue under the supermassive intensity of the Libra New Moon this weekend. The Sabian symbol for the Libra New Moon is “miners emerging from a deep coal mine,” which speaks to coming out of a prolonged period of darkness. The coal mine is described as “deep” so the deeper one is, the longer it takes to come out.
Consider how it must feel for coalminers to emerge from the mine. The blinding light would hurt your eyes until they adjusted. Your body would tingle with the warmth that was spreading over it. You would be responsive. You would come alive.
This imagery is very much like the metaphor I used last month of the gilded cage being opened. It speaks to the integration and mastery of darkness (fears) and the freedom to actualize individual promise. So we feel like we are trying to leave a cage or emerge from darkness. Or perhaps both.
The energy that comes from a New Moon with a Grand Cross (see the report from Friday, October 4, 2013 in the Archives for more information) produces big changes in life. This means the field of consciousness is agitated (vibrated) to make things move or change. The toll on the body is felt. You can think of this as energetic waves bombarding the energy field of the body. This is not a bad thing, it just means you have to take extra care of yourself. It means we don’t push ourselves; we slow down and take siestas. Take care with what you eat and drink more water. Be kind to yourself. Change is hard.
Sunday’s energy tends to have us feeling like we are going in circles – as in “here I am again.” We go in circles when we don’t do anything to change. This lunar month is the prime opportunity to do something differently, be something different, or go a different way. Since Uranus is putting us where we need to be this month, rest assured that the outcome of any changes supports your highest and best. (Shodashi set it up this way.)
The Sun is emerging from the deep as well. It’s recent slumber is ending. This Divine Being joins us in renaissance!
