We Are In the Lunar Week That Most Inspires Me

Fourth Quarter Moon, Sunday, May 22 at 2:43 PM to New Moon May 30, 7:30 AM, EDT

The last of the four phases of the Moon represent my homecoming, as the Fourth Quarter is the phase into which I was born. Because of this natal imprint, the Fourth Quarter Moon carries timing and personality imprints that guide my life.

Before sharing the personal homecoming information, let’s look at what this last Lunar week offers you.

What’s In It for You

The Dark of the Moon occurs every fourth week of the Lunar Cycle. The Balsamic Moon phase ends each Lunar cycle. This repeating timing occurs for the three full 24-hour periods before the New Moon. Because of our body/Moon connection, these three days are the most fertile times for intuitive knowing for all of us.

During these last three days, we are ending the Lunar Cycle. The energetics include movement from form to formlessness. We are ending one cycle to start fresh with the New Moon.

Notice how you feel during the last three days of this cycle, from Friday, May 27 through Sunday, May 29. Particularly, notice how you feel on this last day, Sunday. During this darkest dark of the Moon, resting feels exquisite and genuinely refreshing. A Void Moon on Sunday adds to the gravitational pull to go within.

You might notice a gravitational pull to slow down and go inward. You might feel you are wading through molasses. You might feel quiet or withdrawn from external engagement. If you feel anything like these descriptors, your body tells you the Moon is dark, and you can be, too. Soon after the New Moon arrives on Monday morning, 7:30 AM EDT, you are likely to notice an upsurge in energy and a willingness to go forward.

 Please heed the call if you feel the need to rest during the dark Moon. What you feel is bio cosmic alignment. Allowing rest and quiet time takes you inward where you can receive inspirational information that informs your overall plan.  

Back to the Personal Lunar Cycle

If you are a regular reader of these posts, you may recognize the term Personal Lunar Cycle, as I have written about this natural cycle before. This timing technique was “recovered” through a kinesthetic body experience in 1995. A workbook on how to change your relationship with Time is in the works, and detailed information on the Personal Lunar Cycle (PLC) is included in this workbook.

Before I share the why and the how of the positive impact of the Fourth Quarter phases for me, let’s look at your Moon phase. Use this handy link to determine the Moon phase in which you were born. Once you find it, drop that info in the comments section.

How the Lunar Homecoming Week Works

The Lunar phase into which we are born distills a natural rhythm specific to us. When the Sun/Moon phase angle – the geometrical relationship of the Sun and the Moon — returns each month to that same angle as at your birth, we have our Personal New Moon.

This cosmic event offers a reset button that brings benefits related to accountability and responsibility, self-love, self-care, and cosmic alignment. Quite the monthly gift box! The upcoming New Relationship with Time workbook covers this information in detail.

Aligning with this natural cycle of rest, death, and rebirth, in divine connection with our loving Moon, is one reason I love Fourth Quarter Moons. During this innate Moon phase, I rest naturally and deeply. With awareness of this timing, I plan, schedule, and align with a renewing, resourcing ritual that connects my body to Earth and the Cosmos. Tracking this pattern each Lunar month represents an anchoring to life, goals, plans, and energy levels via responsibility, accountability, and co-creating dreams into manifestation. 

I will keep you posted regarding when the New Relationship with Time workbook is available. For now, check out your Sun/Moon phase at birth and stay tuned to these posts to see what is up during each Lunar phase. Make a note of how your feel during your lunar phase.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

Super short Void Moon times AGAIN this week. Eight and one-half hours on Sunday, May 22, six minutes on Tuesday, May 24, three hours Thursday to Friday, May 26-27, and less than four hours on Sunday, May 29. Depending on where you live – East or West US, or Europe, these times do not interfere with usual business hours. For other parts of the world, these times may impact your work schedule. Please check the time converter to confirm.

Even though the times are short, it still helps to stop trying to do business as usual during a Void Moon time because there is no form to contain the energy and the outcome is uncertain. During the last half of the Lunar Cycle, our work is about letting go, like the exhalation phase of the out-breath. It is a time to extend our arms out into the world with the beautiful creations and manifestations we have built up during the first half of the Lunar Cycles.

The upcoming New Relationship with Time workbook includes information on working with the Void Moons.

Void Moons: No form to contain the energy which feels free-floating and hard to focus. Heeding what your body wants during Void Moons — more internal focus, less external focus, and more stillness, quiet, and rest — are great ways to embody the Moon.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Sunday, May 22, 3:19 AM to 11:50 AM EDT

Tuesday, May 24, 5:33 PM to 5:39 PM EDT

Thursday, May 26, 11:20 PM to Friday, May 27, 2:22 AM EDT

Sunday, May 29, 10:10 AM to 1: 23 PM EDT

Blessed Be. See you next week, at the New Moon.

Fourth Week of November 2021 Lunar Cycle

 4th Week of this Lunar Cycle November 27, 7:28 AM EST to December 4, 2021, New Moon Solar Eclipse, 2:44 AM EST Cosmic cycles invite retreats at times, and now is one of those times. Your holy body, your Sacred Heart, and your Divine Soul have carried you through the Lunar Month and the Solar Year. I imagine you want to hear what they have to say as you wind down in both the Lunar and Solar cycles. In this fourth Lunar week, the physical energy to do and accomplish drains us, and the focus turns inward. Not so much selfish introspection, rather galactic introspection. The soulful questions you might be fielding are: “What did I learn, and what are the next steps in the learning?” On November 21, 2021, our Sun went into Sagittarius, the last Sun sign of the Solar year, before turning toward the Winter Solstice, December 21, 2021, at 10:59 AM EST. The Winter begins the new Solar Cycle. This Lunar week and Solar month offer us a sacred time of quiet reflection, a search for peace, and rest that calms our longings. The Time for contentment, resolute reflection, and seeding sacred dreams is at hand. Slowing down takes practice, and you can start small. One suggestion is to use that time between sleep and waking as a sacred border crossing. Be alert for subtle awareness of positive self-regard that floats into consciousness.  Consider leaving the music or the TV off as you get ready in the morning. Same as at night when you prepare for sleep. Option for Action:    The fourth weeks of Lunar Cycles are my favorite because the Lunar Quarter Moon is my home base. This is where my Sun/Moon phase angle was at the time of my birth. I know the energy of the last quarter Moon in my blood and bones. The Sun/Moon phase at the time of our birth imprints a pattern of energy, along with a personality characteristic, that follows us through life.

If you would like training on aligning with the natural rhythm of your Sun/Moon phase angle, also known as the Personal Lunar Cycle, contact me. The Void Moon Times this week include:

 Sunday, November 28, 7:02 PM to Monday, November 29, 3:55 AM

Tuesday, November 30, 11:20 PM to Wednesday, December 1, 6:56 AM

Friday, December 3, 12:23 AM to 7:14 AM

The Void Moons are mainly short periods this week! Here is a time converter: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter-classic.html 5D Here, Now          The more I bring the book 5D Here, Now, Ordinary Descriptions of An Extraordinary Shift through the publication process, the more I experience multiple access points for shifting to 5D consciousness. One of these access points is Time. The 5th Dimension does not sustain being hooked on Time as something controlling and external. Our human capacity to experience Time as a flowing, organic experience is perceptible through body intelligence. To share that direct experience is why I write these posts. When you release and let go, as we are invited to do in this 4th week of the Lunar Cycle, more serendipity shows up in our lives. You can take that to the bank. Publication of the book is planned for February 2022. Blessed be!  See you next week!      

Personal Dark Moon, May 2012 Experience

I have been living with the Personal Lunar Cycle since I “recovered” it through a kinesthetic body experience in 1993. After tracking it for myself for two years, I wrote about it and then taught it. Prior to my work with the Personal Lunar Cycle, I had been aligning with the rhythmic flow of the Collective Lunar Cycle since the late 1960s. I have come to know these natural rhythms as inner energy cycles. Syncing with natural cycles is one  prime way to deepen work with intuition, as one is timed and aligned with the living world.  Coherency and synchronicity are natural outcomes of this work.

The Dark Moon phase, the last of the eight lunar phases, occurs three days before each New Moon. Energetically, the Dark Moon phase represents a call to stop and dissolve before the renewal that occurs with each New Moon. The Dark Moon phase is like the interphase in the cell cycle, that phase of stop right before the next cell division.  The Dark Moon Phase is also like the night cycle in the day/night rhythm or the dark stillness of winter within the seasonal cycle.

I can share with you that there is almost always a struggle to rest with the Dark Moon Phase.  Either  there is internal resistance to rest, or an external struggle to rest that  comes from obstacles or judgements of others around us. In our society and culture  rest is not an authentic activity.  As hard as it is to listen and acquiesce when our bodies and nature call us to rest, the consequences of not doing so affect mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health and well-being. We can not push upstream in a downstream time and not pay for it with body, mind and soul.

So readers can understand what living with the Personal Lunar Cycle involves, I share my experience of the past Dark Moon phase in my own Personal Lunar Cycle.  The gravitational pull to stop and rest during this Dark Moon time started on Friday and it was profound.  Rest was all that I could do.  I said yes and viscerally understood that this is what I needed. After 19 years of living with this innate cycle I schedule around them. I had one task to do that day, and that was to pay a bill. It took all that I had to meet that task with completion.  Other than that, I rested and read mysteries.

 It was a nice day outside, sunny and in the 70s.  When my sister called for our daily check-in, I could hear in her voice that she thought that I should get up and do something.  Most of the time, my sister  honors my choices in life and has acknowledged her own pull to gravity during her personal dark moons. However, on this day, she seemed to want something different for me than lying under the covers.

I  have my own inner resistance to laying low, yet on this day, here it was, my beloved sister, tonally urging me to get moving. I am telling you readers, it is hard to listen to one’s own inner wisdom and give your heart, soul and physicality what it needs. After hearing my sister’s tone of voice, there was a moment, more than a moment actually, when I questioned my own choice. The pull to gravity was so strong and profound, though, that all I could do was surrender deep into quiet stillness. There is an exquisiteness to that surrender, a profound yes within all of my cells, to let go into doing nothing.

Saturday morning, still in the Dark Moon phase, I ran an errand and had the energy to do it.  Saturday afternoon and evening I participated in an online/phone workshop and took to the bed for that participation.  I fell asleep during some of the processes, which I often do regardless of Moon timing.  In combination of my receptivity to slow stillness in my Personal Dark Moon phase and the information coming to me through the wisdom of the workshop, I was aware of a profound opening in my second chakra.  This sensation was visceral, like this portal of energy opening access for me. There was a magnetic pull of my second chakra opening a viable link to Earth Mother. It was a profound experience of nourishment, recognition and enrichment. The energy of the second chakra that opened for me relates to the second chakra’s function of individual choice, what is it that I want.  This whole area of my body/consciousness was being fed with animate life.  My second chakra was alive, integrated and functioning. Along with this opening came a deeper relaxation into life.

Sunday, was a divinely rainy day here and as the morning flowed, I continued with slow rhythming and did things I was moved to do, like reading for pleasure, watching some TV. The New Moon for me in the Personal Cycle occurred around 12:40 PM. A New Moon has to find its legs, so around 5:30 PM I was activated, cleaning, doing laundry, making dinner with a tender aliveness. Deeper breathing, fuller consciousness, greater gratitude  and conscious awareness of a second chakra that had the experience of belonging.  

And today, Monday, I write to share about this recent experience of of descent and renewal with the Moon. I am off into my new lunar cycle, a new beginning, restored refreshed and ready.

If you sense a repeating pattern of needing to stop within your months, you might be tuning into your own personal lunar cycle rhythm. It is an exquisite patterning, one full of creative potential for fulfillment and well-being and wholeness. If you would like a companion guide to help you maximize this cycle, let me know!
