Threading the New Moon into the Tapestry of your Creations

The Value of a Reset

Maybe you use the end of the calendar year, the birthday, or the end of your fiscal year to reflect and reset. You might not realize that each New Moon allows us to reset. In a 28-day cycle, the nightly love light in our sky gives us a chance to start new.

We do not throw the baby out with the bathwater with these fresh starts. We build on what we have understood, accomplished, and ventured forward. The New Moon offers spiraling new threads in the tapestry of our being.

We build on these refresh points to enhance self-understanding, our relationships, family life, work, creativity, and soul work. It is human nature to want second chances, and each New Moon gives us that.

Allow the New Moon to find its legs, maybe 24 to 36 hours into the new cycle, to allow the new conscious capacity to awaken. The New Moon phase is like the infancy phase in human growth and development. In flowing from the end of one cycle into the beginning of the next cycle, we move from formlessness into form. We take a while to wake up to the new life and opportunity.

Feeling the refresh and restart point of each New Moon represents subtle energy. The human body is resonant, though. If we slow down and allow for stillness, we can feel the ending of one Lunar Cycle and the beginning of the next. This embodied awareness translates into monthly fresh starts.

If you want to get started following the Lunar Cycle as a natural reset button for your physiology, vision, goal setting, intention manifesting, self and family caregiving, here are tips for getting started:

  1. Note the New Moon in the calendar that you use. Most calendars identify the date/time of each New Moon, and if this information is not in the calendar you use regularly, it is easy to input that information.
  2. Realize that each New Moon reflects the infancy stage of human growth and development. As the new cycle gets started, you might feel nebulous, unembodied, or ungrounded. That is part of the process which adds to the awareness of a new beginning.
  3. Within 24 to 36 hours of the New Cycle, you will probably feel stronger, clearer, and not as hazy or vague.
  4. Set intentions for what you want to begin or add to your current creation.
  5. For relationships, intimate and familial, consider celebrating each new lunar cycle, within three days of its start, with a meeting or a meal where you share accountability and plans. This is a time to check-in and keep fresh with what everyone wants and needs in real-time.
  6. Realize within yourself the chance to start new. Do you need to update the post-it notes on your mirror? Do you need to set new goals or deadlines? Remember, this is a 28-day cycle so that you can focus on short-term, easy, and flexible.
  7. Look up in the sky some night during the first week of the New Moon phase and see the shape of the Moon. Own that new beginning within you.

The above suggestions relate to the Collective Lunar Cycle, which covers all of us on Earth. As described in earlier posts, the Personal Lunar Cycle is determined by the phase of the Moon in which you are born. So, you can also access a second refresh point each Lunar month. I cannot stress enough how valuable a sense of this timing is to human wellbeing. The Collective and the Personal Lunar Cycles are how we spiral through life. They are innate rhythms within and around us. 

A workbook on A New Relationship with Time is in the works, and more information on these natural cycles is included in that workbook. If you have questions before that workbook is published, please bounce back in the comments or email aureal@5dherenow.com.

Please also look up at the Moon and feel Her loving wisdom radiate back to you, permeating your physiology, consciousness, and heart.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

If you are ever curious about why you lose the plot unexpectedly, consider checking out the Void of Course Moon. When there are no aspects – geometrical relations between the Moon and the personal planets – the Moon is Void. Buckminster Fuller taught us that energy is contained in the form.

Sacred geometry, the geometrical relationship between spaces, provides the forms to contain energy. Sacred geometry is everywhere–the seating dynamics of your dining table, conference room meeting, office set-up–anywhere people are gathered, a geometrical shape represents the social configuration.

As above, so below. The geometrical shapes formed in the sky between the Moon and a personal planet give form to the energetic structure that supports the function.

When the Moon is Void, there is no container for the energy to function. The energy is free-floating. These are perceptible feelings within the human body. I have people close to me, not interested in astrology, yet they have heard me talk about the Void Moon so often that they now feel it. They ask Aureal, where’s that Moon?

If efficiency is one of your high values, and if you do not want to waste time, money, or energy, paying attention to the Void Moon times warrants a look.

The Sun is Involved, Too

In the quantum leap to the 5th Dimension consciousness, the entirety of our cosmos transforms. Our Sun is in on this shift, too. We now have solar flares, sunspots, the Schumann Resonance, plasma downloads, and much activity that affects our physicality. It used to be that I could look at the Void of Course Moon tables and plan and schedule downtime. Now, with the Sun and atmospheric shifts involved, there is not an ephemeris, a table to look at for predictable times.

This is why it is vital to allow your body to be your timer in life. When you are tired, consider not pushing forward. Consider resting, restoring, and receiving the downloads, even if you are unaware of the higher frequencies being downloaded. Resting when your body wants that, stopping when it hurts to proceed,  helps raise your frequency and, therefore, your capacity to do your work with more fulfillment and optimized outcome.

Practicing stopping and resting during Void Moons helps build the capacity to stop when our Sun and atmosphere raise frequencies. When we witness and positively respond to the atmospheric impacts, even if we do not understand them, we affirm our belonging as part of the whole.

Spaceweatherlive.com, https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/, and many of the YouTube posters that share information on the Schumann Resonance are sources for more details on these electromagnetic and atmospheric changes.  

Void of Course Moon Times

The Void of Course Moon times occurs according to your time zone. Please use the time zone link to determine the Void of Course Moon times where you live.

For all of us around the globe, the Void Moon times are relatively short this week. For the United States and Canada, Tuesday, May 31, afternoon and evening are affected, and morning or midday on Friday, June 3. For Europe, it looks like the Moon is void during late evening and overnight hours.

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.

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:

Tuesday, May 31, 4:10 PM to Wednesday, June 1, 1:49 AM EDT

Friday, June 3, 11:15 AM to 2:39 PM EDT

Sunday, June 5, 7:13 PM to Monday, June 6, 2: 23 AM EDT

Second Quarter Moon Thursday, March 10, 5:46 AM

Second Quarter Moon Thursday, March 10, 5:46 AM

Relationship with Time represents one pillar of access into 5D Consciousness. Like I wrote in the book 5D Ordinary Descriptions of an Extraordinary Shift, the Industrialist Barons used Time as a controlling mechanism. Despite this conditioning happened decades ago, many of us still live with the experience of Time as an external force. We look to devices outside of ourselves to tell Time, and we react to modern maladies like hurry sickness, overwork, and societal pressures to be on Time. It is possible to release from Time as external control and open to Time as an inner experience that connects us and our bodies to nature. From the decades-long work I have done extracting myself from mechanical Time, I know that freedom is restricted when Time controls us. Releasing from Time as external control and opening to Time as an inner experience leads us to the very core of freedom, nature. Our bodies radiate more of nature when we keep Time from within. Please consider aligning with natural cycles as your timekeeper. Align with sunrises and sunsets; align with the Seasons; align with the ebb and flow of our Moon. This lunar week we build toward the complete Light of a Full Moon. It is a fulfilling, becoming week, one where we meet our potential within. Embodying natural time cycles is one part of the medicine that I carry. I feel the Moon’s rhythm within my body, particularly. If I can help you move through the challenges of opening to your body as Timer, as we shift to 5D Consciousness, consider scheduling a time to talk here https://calendly.com/aureal.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week There is an 18-hour Void Moon on Tuesday, March 15. Historically, the Ides of March from Shakespeare’s time means to divide. In this time of cultural divide, perhaps we can use the Void Moon on Tuesday to come home to Self and soften the divisions within so that the divisions outside may be lessened, too. Void Moons: No form to contain the energy which feels free-floating and hard to focus. Hearing what your body wants during Void Moons, generally, more internal focus than external focus and more stillness, quiet, and rest, are great ways to start embodying the Moon.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Thursday, March 10, 11:43 AM to Friday, March 11, 2:25 AM Sunday, March 13, 11:44 AM to 3:32 PM EDT Tuesday, March 15, 6:56 AM to Wednesday, March 16, 12:59 AM EDT Thursday, March 18 (Full Moon @ 3:18 AM) Void Moon 4:11 AM to 7:26 AM EDT Here is a time converter: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter-classic.html Blessed Be. See you next week with the Full Moon phase.

How to Jump the Timeline

Living 5D frequency requires a new relationship with Time. This revitalized relationship is necessary because Time attempts to control us in 3D. We move past that external control in 5D.

Ingrained conditioning about Time stems from the Industrial Revolution. That conditioning holds the concepts of Mechanical Time, with humans performing like machines, and the dangerous paradigm “Time is Money.” These mindsets reflect 3D consciousness, and they are outdated.  Time as an external control ruins the flow of authentic productivity.

Come with me to the realm of Natural Time, highlighted by our Moon and her wise and loving, organic flow.

Our Moon repeats the pattern of building and releasing, like the in and out rhythm of our breath. This predictable pattern of ebb and flow is where we can reclaim Time as an internal experience. It is simply a matter of feeling this ebb and flow within our energy field and responding to it like a reliable partner.

Week 2 of this Lunar Cycle

Friday, December 11, 2021 8:36 PM, EDT to Saturday, December 18, 2021, 11:36 PM

After the intensity of the New Moon Solar eclipse one week ago and the tremendous amount of space weather upping our frequencies this past week, the energy field of this Second Lunar Week supports idea and product development.

This lunar week, we solidify the structure of what we are creating. The cosmic invitation is to feel this building energy as a visceral experience. Feel the potential; feel the confidence; feel the pervasive, can-do energy.

Recognize that this energy aligns with the budding energy of the Moon as it leads up to the Full Moon on Saturday, December 18, 2021. Honour this bursting forth energy with wise choice, free of the fear of failing. Delight yourself and your user communities with fresh perspectives.

5D, Here, Now awaits you. Move past Time as controlling energy and into Time as an internal dynamic of Love, Direction, and Knowing.

Ask me how: Send your questions about how to experience Time internally. I will reply to the questions in this blog.  Click here for more information on the gifts of our Moon.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Saturday, December 11, 2:40 PM to 4:42 PM, EDT

Monday, December 13, 9:52 PM to  Tuesday, December 14, 3:11 AM, EDT

Thursday, December 16, 11:08 AM to 3:43 PM, EDT

Here is a time converter: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter-classic.html

When the Moon is Void, the energy is free-floating. It is hard to focus during Void Moons, and major purchases made during Void Moon times often have to be returned. An optimal focus during a Void Moon time is internal work, like reflection and rest.

Next week…Full Moon Light!

 

Why Our Moon Matters

The Moon, in ever-fluctuating light, provides an anchor that reflects the consistency of change. We can feel within or look up when we need a visual and align with the cosmic flow.

The Industrial Age, with man working as machine, and the advent of electricity with its 24/7 functionality, embedded the construct of Time as external control. This conditioning of Time as a force outside of us is deep and can be entrenched. Many workplaces have a conspicuous clock on the wall that serves as an ever-observant taskmaster. People have had their bathroom breaks timed. Individuals regard themselves as “on the clock,” particularly if they must clock in and out of work. Some people still wear a watch, feeling a need to track Time within an arm’s length away.

Reflect on what these pressures related to Time as a controlling influence exert on the human body and the spontaneous process of creativity.

Claiming Time as an internal experience of cosmic flow matters now because we are in a collective shift of consciousness, moving from the 3rd Dimension to the 5th Dimension. In 3D, Time is linear, as past, present, and future are sequential. In 5D, past, present, and future are simultaneous, and the present moment is key.

As humans, we are part of nature, and the flow of organic Time is felt within us. It is simply a matter of recognizing our body’s intelligence concerning timing. Recognizing body intelligence is kin to intuition. With intuition, we know when to move and when to stand still.

While our Sun and Earth have central roles in how Time shows up for us, the Moon pictorially describes and reminds us of the natural flow of Time as an organic experience.

We have had 180 years + of programming that conditioned humans to regard Time as a force outside us. It is a significant upgrade to consider Time as an organic, inner experience. If you want to release from the relentless pressures that mechanical Time attempts to exert on daily life, then consider aligning with the lunar cycle for planning, scheduling, and living your life.

The 5D Here Now blog and social media posts provide information on the changing weeks in the lunar cycle, often with resources to learn more. If your heart says, Yes! to this shift in relationship with Time, you can start slow. Align with the energy pattern that repeats each lunar month. Curiosity will take you to the next steps based on the direct experience of these organic shifts within your body and lived experience.

There is an ebook coming out soon, and the title is 5D Here, Now, Ordinary Descriptions for an Extraordinary Shift. This book describes what 5D is, why it is happening now, and how to make the switch consciously. Until that book is published, please know that one of the access points to 5D is Time. Many of us get this, instinctively, if not habitually.

Ask A Question about natural time alignment, and I will respond in the blog posts. Personal consultations are also possible if the need for natural time alignment feels more urgent.

 

 

 

 

 

October 6, 2021 New Moon

Photo by Sanaan Mazhar from Pexels

Glory, alleluia! The New Moon occurs at 7:05 AM EDT on Wednesday, October 6th, 2021.  This cosmic turning opens an entirely new cycle to create and love and grow into new consciousness.

The focus of these communications is to drill down to the essence of feeling these cosmic turnings within the body as a visceral experience.

Almost all the anchors in our lives are shifting. However, the cosmic alignment of Earth, Sun, and Moon remains as reliable anchors for planning, scheduling, and orienting toward fulfillment.

New Moons represent new circumstances. There is a fresh start, even to long-term projects and relationships. The New Moon offers a reset button that is best accessed by tuning into your intuition.

Questions you might ask are:

What is the opportunity for me in this new lunar month?

How do I begin?

How do I reset in …… circumstance?

The New Moon phase occurs between October 6th, 2021, 7:05 AM, EDT and lasts until October 12th, 11:25 PM EDT. The first week of the four-week lunar cycle is a creative time of application and focus. What we have generated within this first lunar week builds momentum toward the coming Full Moon.

The shape of our Moon in the night sky reflects the natural development of our efforts in imagining, creating and building our vision.

Allow your focus about one day into the new cycle to generate the form of your reset and then grab that budding energy. Go forward with animate creativity. Allow yourself this opportunity to align with nature and push the reset button.

Void of Course Moon times in this first week include:

 

Thursday, October 7th, 1:03 AM to 10:22 AM EDT.

Saturday, October 9th, 2:05 AM to 11:24 AM EDT

Monday, October 11th, 12:30 AM to 1:15 PM EDT

 

As the name suggests, void of Course Moon times is fluid periods when it is hard to focus.  Internal activities like resting, dreaming, reflecting are favoured, and demanding applications are Sisyphean.

Hi everyone!

At 9:58 pm EDT Tuesday, September 28, we enter the last week of the lunar cycle.

Keeping track of time by aligning with the first of every month in the standard calendar does not connect us to nature. Aligning with the lunar cycle connects us to our inner nature and the glorious nature surrounding us.

Note what happens with the tides and Moon flow.  It is the same with us if we allow for that subtle sensibility.

The last three days of this last lunar week are known as the Dark of the Moon. The Dark of the Moon occurs from Sunday, October 3 to Wednesday, October 6 at 7:05 am, EDT, when we have the New Moon.  Dark Moon times are naturally occurring low energy, the ebbing cycle.

In the last week, outward energy is low and introspective energy is high. We may feel slower and pulled more to the ground. These are times to rest and reflect.

It is a matter of trust and long-term tracking to remember our natural alignment with lunar flow. Synchronizing energy with Moon flow, we become the timer, rather than the clock on the wall or the watch on the wrist. Benefits of aligning with natural time include less stress and more fulfillment.

Letting your body be the timer leads to a direct experience of sovereignty.

For those willing and able, note your energy levels between Tuesday, September 28, and the New Moon on September 6. Give the New Moon 24 hours or so, and then notice how energy naturally builds. We will explore this more next week.

The void of course Moon times in this last week of the lunar cycle include:

Thursday, September 30, 3:05 am until 2:10 pm EDT

Saturday, October 2, 7:43 pm until Sunday, October 3, 4:38 am EDT

Tuesday, October 5, 4:46 Am until 8:41 am EDT

The last lunar week, especially the three days of the Dark of the Moon, and void of course Moon times are highly receptive times for intuition, inspiration, and imagination. They are challenging times for using force to move forward.

More info is coming in the months ahead.

 

With Moon Glow,

Allowing Our Moon’s Magnetics to Pull You toward Stillness

In the early 1980s, I remember feeling bewildered that I had energy during one-half of each month and wanted to do nothing the other half of each month. This confusion was before I had consciousness around the permeable flow of the Moon’s rhythms in nature and within me.

Now that I understand the shifting rhythms, I work with them consciously. I have just had my Personal Dark Moon with its luscious pull to be quiet and still. It is a majical time that filters, warms and nurtures. Dark Moons rest my body, Soul, and Spirit.

Everyone has his or her unique patterning between the Personal and the Collective Lunar Cycles.  My Personal New Moon occurs about one week before the Collective New Moon. With this patterning, I have three days of magnetic pull to stillness and then an energetic uplift with my Personal New Moon. A few days after this, I go down and in again with the Collective Dark Moon, and then a fuller, energetic resurgence with the Collective New Moon. During the last ten days of the Collective Lunar Cycle, for me,  the needle on the energy spectrum trends toward low.

Flowing with this pattern allows my body rest and more rest, with the reflective peace that comes with stillness. These are abundantly rich times, and I resurface in both the Personal and Collective New Moons with new insights, and fresh starts.

The reflection that broke through the surface during this recent Personal Dark Moon relates to the heavy tension that gets stored in my body when I focus on the unexplainable chaos in our world now. In the United States, we have someone in power appearing to break all rules, yet keeps going. We have police shooting people to death, without charges brought against them and we have a former, revered comedian on trial for sexual assault, with legions of women in the background echoing similar assault, and the trial results in a hung jury.  In the world, we have audacious events of mass deaths by unfathomable acts of terror. Who can explain this topsy-turvy world?

For those of us working with the collective consciousness shift to higher dimensions, we understand that these bizarre outer circumstances represent the dismantling of the old order.  We get that. Living through it is another matter, as hardly anyone anticipated the dismantling would be so disgraceful, shocking, offensive, extreme.

The impact on our collective psyche is serious. People who are not aware of the quantum dimensional shift are having a tough time. People who are aware of this quantum shift are also having a tough time. Stress levels tip the balance scales with somber effect.

I have felt this stress as it shows up in clenched muscle tension that stifles life flow. This physical contraction hurts, and as a sovereign being, I must shift this. We all have anchors that bring us to center. One of my main anchors involves synchronizing physical energy levels with Moon flow.

Because I stopped, rested, and listened during my most recent Personal Dark Moon, I heard a plan that come through my inner caretaker.  During the Collective Dark Moon this week, I am taking a news cleanse.  I am not reading news online. I already do not watch the news on TV, and this week, I am giving up the hours I spend every day reading news online.  Our New Moon occurs Friday evening, June 23, 10:32 PM, EDT.  I will discern then whether I want to return to spending precious, potentially creative, moments reading news online.

Before the November election, I stopped listening to NPR news and have not returned to that practice. My system cannot take it.  My system has been on overload with all the online news I consumed,  and in this collective Dark Moon, I release that practice, too. I will have more time for creativity, more time for connecting with others, more time for tending to my inner life, as is optimal during a dark Moon phase.

It is rough out there. We must keep to kindness and supreme self-care. Do you feel the magnetic pull to stillness when it knocks on your psyche? Are you allowing it to help you stop, rest and listen to your inner wisdom? Please share in the comments section. If you would like assistance determining the pattern between your Personal and Collective Lunar Cycles, let me know.

 

Having to Function During a Personal Dark Moon

Aha! moments are sacred, special and bring meaning to our lives. I recently had an Aha! awareness that time is like a second skin we can slip into. This works when it is our rhythm that is slipped into time, rather than time, as an external force, being  superimposed upon us.

Science tells us that time does not exist. Yet, we seem to have universally agreed upon something we call “time”. We show up for work on time, we meet at the movies on time, we pay our taxes on time.

My life and my work are about Natural Time, Body as Timer, living in sync with rhythms of nature as experienced viscerally. A major piece of my work is the Personal Lunar Cycle, a pattern of energy that is based on the phase of the Moon in which we are born. There is a Dark Moon to this Personal Cycle, just as there is a Dark Moon in the Collective Cycle. This Dark Moon represents a naturally occurring low energy time. It is low energy because we are ending a cycle, emptying out in order to begin again with the New Moon.

I choose to live with this cycle each lunar month, and have done so for over twenty years. As I wrote last October, the Dark Moon in both Personal or Collective cycle is a pull to stillness. It is a highly intuitive time and the benefits of stopping to listen are great.

That is not always possible, however, as I wrote in that October blog post. The need to produce happened again in my most recent Personal Dark Moon cycle. I knew to pace myself and to choose as great a version of self-care as possible. I was in bearing witness mode as I showed up, was present to responsibilities and produced.

A Dark Moon period can affect a time span of 2-4 days. I knew what was coming and limited other obligations, focusing only on what was necessary. The 24 hours before my Personal New Moon, I surprised myself with the experience of full functioning. I did not feel compromised in any way, energetically.

The day of my Personal New Moon, though, I did feel the strong pull to gravity, the strong wish to tune everything out other than quiet stillness. I did show up and function adequately that Personal New Moon Day, however, that evening, I crashed. I took to the bed as soon as I could and simply rested. The next day I did have 100% time freedom and rested fully and completely.

The Aha! waking thought that Personal New Moon day was a direct experience of my body slipping into Time and allowing internal and external rhythms to sync. Rhythm is everything in nature. Finding the vibratory rhythm between our internal experience and our external circumstance means that we take our time and sync with the moment, consciously.

My work, feeling the Body as Timer, is a lifelong journey to embody nature’s cycles within the human experience. This work comes from the direct experience that we are sovereign beings. While we might have to function in relation to an external demand, we can do it with an internal sense of personal choice and in alignment with all that is, including the pace of  our body, mind and Soul.

Slow down, you move too fast,” was a phrase from a popular song during my teens. My Mother used to remind me of that, when I was a young girl trying to find my way. My other Mother, our Moon, has always been beaming that to me, to feel Time as my own, and move accordingly.

How about you? How do you feel Time as an inner experience?  Please share in the comments section below.

The Birthday as a Structural, Organizing Principle

 

Whether we celebrate with festive parties or quiet reverie, the birthday offers a structural organizing principle within the play of life. The birthday is a sacred time, a renewal of life on earth in direct connection with our Sun, the ultimate umbilical cord.

A Solar Return is when the sun in the current sky is at the same place as the Sun at the time of birth. As we age, the Solar Return can occur prior to the actual calendar date of the birthday, even a day or two before the actual birth date. This Solar Return is an inner energy experience that can be acknowledged and honoured.

The ebb and flow of Solar energy goes like this: about one month before the birthday, personal energy level starts to wane. About three days before the birthday, personal energy can be quite low and with a strong internal focus.  We are coming to the end of a cycle, just as personal energy levels dip at the end of the Lunar Cycle, during the Dark of the Moon phase just before the New Moon.

There is nothing wrong with this pull to stillness. In fact, this slowdown reflects resonate alignment with cosmic flow.  Once the Solar Return happens, energy starts to build again and a surge of renewal is palpable.  

Life is cyclical.  There are long cycles and there are shorter cycles. Our bodies feel them all. When we tune into the personal timing of our Solar Cycle, we can make the most of this innate, structural, organizing principle and tap its benefits: a renewal of life on Earth in sync with Sun, Self and Earth.  A Oneness of cosmic alignment.

As some readers know, my work is about Personal and Collective Lunar Cycles.   There is a Collective starting point and a Personal starting point within both the Solar and Lunar Cycles. Having a sense of this inner/outer timing structure, and the fact that the Personal and Collective cycles represent cyclical overlays, helps understand one’s personal rhythm within the frame of the collective rhythm.

Here is an example:  My birthday occurs mid-February.  I do not feel the full start to my new year until after my birthday.  Yes, I recognize the Winter Solstice as the start of the year, I give nodding acknowledgement to January 1st each year and I also align with the resonance of the Chinese New Year which starts with the February New Moon.  I feel these natural cycles, however, the new year does not fully start for me until after my mid-February birthday.

What this suggests is that my resonance is aligned more with a Personal Solar Cycle than with the Collective Solar Cycle. Neither personal nor collective alignment is better; it is helpful, though, to know which is your primary resonance, personal or collective.

My most recent Solar renewal led me to thoughts about those born in seasons other than Winter. With a February birthday, the fullness of my new start time is in the winter; midwinter to be sure, however, near the Winter Solstice and the February New Moon, which for centuries has guided the Chinese to the start of their New Year.

For those born in Spring, Summer or Fall, I wonder how the Solar organizing principle plays out.  I am talking about the very internal structure of dissolution and renewal as expressed by cosmic flow. In the comments section below, please share your experience of the personal and collective starts to the year.

The reference here is the overlay of personal within collective and collective within personal. Bringing consciousness to these innate rhythms helps frame the experience of one’s unique rhythm with Life.  Such a reflection can provide grounding and understanding through a visceral sense of a structural, organizing principle for one’s life.

Given the current political climate, many of us are examining our personal role within the collective whole. Aligning personal Solar year with collective Solar is one facet of our entwined life on Earth.  

12 Genuine, Fresh Start Dates in 2017

copper-1476023_1280-swirl

We are at that time of year when we turn the page. We have reviewed the past year, released what we no longer want and set our vision for a wonderful, majical, fulfilling 2017. A new beginning, a fresh start.

Many people use a restart date that coincides with a natural cycle, like the Solstice or the Spring Equinox, wherever they consider the start of a new year. Many cultures start the New Year with a New Moon.  For many others, though, January 1 is the reset button. It does helps to use markers for assessment and evaluation and the marker of the Gregorian Calendar Year is deep in our collective psyche.

In whatever measurement, a natural cycle or the common calendar, one year seems a long time to hold the focus. Much can fall through the cracks, distraction overwhelms and focus wanes. It seems inevitable that accountability falters when held in the frame for one full year.

There is another way to release, revise and measure.  This other way uses each lunar cycle as a definitive unit for accountability. As I have written before, cycles are the current through which we flow through life.

This 28-day cycle measurement is easier on the body, the mind and the emotions because our Moon is considered Mother energy and we feel her flow. The Lunar Cycle is not as stern as a full year’s measurement. Yes, we can use both cyclic measurements, with perhaps the year as an overview and the lunar month as a consistent check-in point.

earth-1544757_1280-earth-and-moon

If you accept the invitation to use the Moon as marker for bringing intentions, goals and visions into alignment with your wisdom and your action, the twelve New Moons for 2017 are listed below.  The two listed in bold are eclipses, especially potent days for reviews and restarts and I will write more about those in an upcoming blog post.

One suggestion for maximizing these review/restart pivots is to mark three full 24 hour periods that precede these dates and times on your calendar using the notation, “Dark of the Moon.”  The Dark of the Moon is the emptying out phase of this natural cycle and bodies resonate with this rhythm.   During the Dark Moon time, limit your schedule as much as you can and allow for extra rest and inner wandering. Soon after the New Moon, acknowledge the upward surge of energy; the restart has begun.

Use the Dark Moon for gentle release, stillness and divine time with your Soul. At each New Moon, you can set a goal, along with an action plan for how to get there.

For hearty souls who want more, there is an additional refresh, restart pivot time each lunar month that is determined by the phase of the Moon in which you are born. This is the Personal Lunar Cycle; the other is the Collective Lunar Cycle, as that is operational for all of us on Earth. Online training is in the works for the potent Personal Lunar Cycle.
