End of the Calendar Year 2021, and Last Phase of this Lunar Cycle

Having just experienced the pull to stillness with the Winter Solstice on December 21 and the upcoming worldwide, traditional celebration of the end of one year, December 31, in the Gregorian Calendar, we are definitively at a closing out time. To add to this time of release, December 26, 2021, 9:25 PM EST brings us into the 4th and final phase of this current lunar cycle. Now is the winding down, reset moment, and this fourth lunar phase increases the gravitational pull to be still and present.

In some divine timing, the New Moon occurs on January 2, 2022, at 1:34 PM EST. The Dark of the Moon occurs three full days before the New Moon, so from 1:34 PM on December 30, 2021, until the New Moon on January 2, we are in the Dark Moon. This is the still point, a time of absolute receptivity to the Noosphere, the 5th Dimension land of cosmic inner knowing

For eons, the Dark Moon has helped us release what is no longer alive for us, what no longer works, what is complete. The Dark of the Moon is a supreme time for letting go.

May you gift yourself time to release for this Lunar Cycle and this calendar year. Like the saying that one cannot be in two places at once, we can not release and fill up simultaneously.

Please call on all of your experiences and deep, innate knowing to let go in this holy release time.

Our Moon has been guiding us in the process of releasing and letting go and beginning again for eons. It is what she does. Consider inviting our Moon to help you release what has expired for you. Watch her as she models for us how to let go.

 

The Void Moon

Buckminster Fuller tells us that energy is contained in form. There is no geometric, cosmic shape between the Moon and an inner planet when the Moon is void, hence, there is no form to contain the energy.

Void Moons feel like we are free-floating. It is hard to hold focus and accomplish essential tasks. I have been tracking the Void Moon times for over four decades and am at the point where I feel these void times in my body. It hurts to try and produce upstream in a downstream time.

Efficiency is one of my highest values, and I got tired of wasting time, energy, resources, so I observe the Void Moon times with advanced planning. The Void Moon times for this Fourth Quarter quiet week are below. I invite you to join me in this productivity practice. Put your questions in the comments section, below.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Sunday, December 26, 3:40 AM to 11:25 AM, EST

Tuesday, December 28, 4:12 AM to  4:17 PM, EST

   Thursday, December 30, 12:11 PM to 6:09 PM, EST

    Saturday, January 1, 2022, 3:17 AM to 6:03 PM EST

Blessed be!  See you next week!

3-Question Worksheet for Slowing Down, Now!

Why Slow Down Now?

November 27, 2016 — Dark, dark of Moon, with New Moon on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 7:19 AM, EST

Energy is naturally low in a dark Moon and the closer we get to the end of the lunar cycle and the beginning of the next, the stronger the gravitational pull to slow stillness.

Void Moon, Sunday, November 27, 2016 from 4:49 PM EST to Monday, November 28, 2016, 3:46 PM EST

Void Moon indicates free floating energy, nothing much takes shape or what is formed often has to be reformed, redone. Void Moons are prime times for introspection, reflection, rest, listening.

We are winding down the 2016 Solar Cycle. Many people celebrate the New Year with the Winter Solstice and we are weeks away from that Natural Time marker.  A slowdown in the Solar Cycle might not impact our physical energy as much as a slowdown in the Lunar Cycle, however, as we look to nature in the Northern Hemisphere, we see barren earth, bare trees and people bundling up, staying indoors more. The focus shifts to internal as we approach stillpoint of the Winter Solstice. We are, most likely, becoming quieter, more reflective.

These Natural Time markers invite slowing down now. In addition, many of us are standing with those at Standing Rock.  Many of us are standing with our brothers and sisters of all races and all spiritual and sexual and gender orientations. It is a gift to ourselves, and to all brothers and sisters, when we align with nature and slow down, too. When we stop, be still and listen, in alignment with Natural Cycles, we can know next steps. Wisdom, support and direction come through listening through the stillness.

Comfort and renewal also come through slowing down, letting go and listening. If stillness and slowing down are not yet a delight and remain a challenge, here is a 3-question worksheet for exploring your relationship with slowing down and stillness. This is not a test and there are no wrong answers, simply a personal exploration of something that you might want more options over, to slow down, be still.
