Fourth and Final Week of this Lunar Cycle

We roll into the fourth and final week of this lunar cycle on Thursday, October 28, 2021, at 4:05 PM, Eastern US time. The New Moon occurs on Thursday, November 4, 2021, at 5:15 PM Eastern US time.

Wise sages tell us that there is No Beginning and No End. We do, though, encounter reset and refresh points. The end of a lunar cycle and the beginning of the next lunar cycle is a reset and refresh point.

In this last week, we slow down and release. There is an energetic wind-down. The strength of the gravitational pull to slow down increases as we get closer to the end of the cycle.

We perceive other naturally occurring low energy times at the end of each day, lunar month, and solar year. These pivot points allow us to reassess processes, goals, and plans. We can release and reset for a fresh start.

It can be helpful to take advantage of these reset times because they are naturally restorative. When we align with these natural cycles, we affirm nature within our human nature. We become One With.

Notice your energy levels from October 28 to November 4. If you feel like relaxing with a book, or taking a nature walk, or napping, or saying no to overwork, your Sacred Heart and Body Temple feel the Moon’s flow.

The three days before the New Moon are called the Dark of the Moon. These are times when I overhear people say, “I am so tired, and I don’t know why.”

Rest is encouraged in this last week, especially during the last 24 hours of this lunar cycle, the darkest Dark of the Moon. (New Moon occurs on 4, 5:15 PM EDT. Count back 24 hours for your time zone.)

There is a pattern to this tiredness, and it is recognizable. The Moon reflects this wind-up and wind-down rhythm every lunar month. Pattern recognition is a gold standard in self-care. So, when you feel the call to rest, please consider saying yes.

Intuition increases during naturally occurring low energy times because we become more receptive. Every cell of our being has a rest phase, called the interphase. We can indulge body, mind, and soul to rest in conjunction with our beloved, ever-flowing Moon.

If you have questions about allowing for more rest during the end of the lunar cycle, send me an email at aureal@5dherenow.com.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Saturday, October 30, 3:05 AM to 2:10 PM, EDT

Monday, November 1, 1:00 PM to 7:11 PM, EDT

Wednesday, November 3, 6:32 PM to 8:53 PM, EDT

We often feel void when the Moon is Void. These are times when it is hard to focus, hard to accomplish, and produce. If interested, track your productivity and your energy levels during these times. When you feel a resonance, factor in void Moon times for optimal planning and scheduling.

See you next week!

Lunar Week of the Full Moon, October 2021

The sight of the Moon two nights ago, a breath away from being Full, pierced my heart. I do not remember seeing the Moonlight so resolutely alive.

It has been said that colours are more vibrant now as we collectively shift to the 5th Dimension consciousness. That might be the reason the Moon was so white light.  The vividness could also be seasonal, as the Moon shines differently throughout the year.

Whatever the reason, the Moon is in her fullness today, October 20, at 10:58 AM EDT. Those in the United States and Canadian time zones must wait until tonight to see her total luminescence.

We will likely feel the fullness without seeing her.  Full Moon days come with increased responsibility and an increase in the numbers of people milling about our circles. The Full Moon, like a musical crescendo, ups the volume and intensity.

After two weeks of buildup, we reach the peak. At this fulcrum point, we can experience completeness within ourselves –satisfaction; or feel disjointed and out of sorts.

If the jarring side comes up for you, please consider centering exercises, like meditation or yoga, or time in nature. If the contentment side comes up for you, consider consciously affirming the experience of fullness in connection with nature.

The Moon and her Light are about the reflection of inner knowing, of keeping pace with oneself within every fluid moment of life.

This lunar week lasts from 10:58 AM, Wednesday, October 20 until 4:05 PM Thursday, October 28, EDT, when we enter this cycle’s fourth and final week.

During this third week, the halfway point in the cycle, the dial turns from building to releasing.  It is now time to bring the work close in and reassess for the next steps.

Void Moon times this week are:

Wednesday, October 20, 2021, 10:58 AM until 4:00 PM EDT

Friday, October 22, 2021, 4:36 PM until Saturday, October 23, 3:58 AM EDT

Monday, October 25, 2021, 10:12 AM until 5:01 PM EDT

Thursday, October 28, 2021, 2:02 AM until 5:08 AM EDT

Here is a time converter.

 You might also feel void during Void Moon times; it can be hard to focus or produce. Lowering expectations and prioritizing essential projects for when the Moon is not void saves on frustration and resources.

Stay tuned to these reports for upcoming information on an e-book about 5D – coming soon! — and products and services to help align with these natural lunar cycles.

See you next week!

Week 2 of this Lunar Cycle

The momentum of this past week felt like the swell of a power surfer’s wave.  The focus was sharp and the determination palpable. This energy swell increases during the second week of this lunar cycle.  The timeline is from 11:25 PM, EDT October 12 to 10:58 AM, EDT October 20 when the Full Moon lights our way.

During this second week, we get serious about bringing our vision into concrete form.  It is a time of laser focus and refined discernment. In one week, the energetic dial turns from building to sharing.

One analogy is that we have one week left on the in-breath, and then we go two weeks into the out-breath.

While this rhythm may not precisely match the timeline on your projects, it is a pattern of energy dropped down from the Moon to us.  She delivers predictable human energy patterns, just as she does with the tides. Pattern recognition is a 21st-century tool.

We can use this knowing professionally for planning and personally to align with nature. This nature/human alignment is recognizable as felt body experiences.  With enough practice, maybe years, it is possible to recall the energetic imprint our ancestors lived by as an internal compass that guides us today.

Clock time no longer resonates with the rising frequencies of the collective consciousness shift to 5D. (More on this soon!) The body knows nature. It is simply a matter of actively working with our body’s wisdom. If you are intrigued about how to do that, resources and services are being announced in the months ahead.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Wednesday, October 13, 6:53 AM to 4:48 PM, EDT

Friday, October 15, 8:33 AM to 10:22 PM, EDT

Saturday, October 17, 7:24 PM to Sunday, October 18, 6:05 AM, EDT

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

The Moon goes void every two and one-half days for varying amounts of time. This Wednesday and Friday, the void moon times are extended.

I started observing void Moons in the early 1980s. After a couple of years of tracking outcomes with void Moon times, I saw the benefit of living in alignment with these natural cycles.

I got burnt too many times having to retrace my steps, redo work, or cope with frustrations that could have been avoided if I had followed the void Moon times. Efficiency is a core value for me. Wasting anything – time, energy, resources — hurts.

So, when the Moon goes void, I do, too.  I have found that too much is lost, otherwise.  Check it out for yourself over many months to see if void Moon times affect your productivity.

During void times, I tend to do nonessential tasks and rest and reflect. Void Moon times feel like you do not want to get out of bed, or it is hard to focus, or you find yourself daydreaming.

Being self-employed, I am not bound by a time clock and can work all hours, and any day, to accommodate this natural rhythm that invites slow down, if not a complete stop.

If your circumstances require showing up and working during void Moon times, self-talk can help.  Remind yourself that it is hard to produce upstream in a downstream time. Affirm that you will rest as soon as you can.  Pace yourself and accommodate, as best as you can, a workflow that aligns with our Moon.

 

See you next week!

 

 

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,

3-Question Worksheet for Slowing Down, Now!

tree-4700_1280-stillness

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.

swing-1350654_1280

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.

Sunrise, Sunset

sunrise

Through a moving FB post, a friend opened me to a new experience of Natural Time – the simple noticing of Sunrise and Sunset and their daily fluctuations.

This is a brilliant practice for moving through the hold that cultural conditioning about time tries to have over us. When we honour nature’s fluidity, we open to our own fluidity. For those in affinity with the Divine Feminine, Goddess Energy and Eastern philosophies, dawn and twilight have long been identified as Dakini time, when there is high receptivity to receiving intuition. Sunrise and sunset are Soulful living times.

Personal energy flows, and with it, power, stamina and focus, in relation to the ebbs and flows of the natural world. We are cyclic beings within a cyclic world. We can use information about natural cycles to our advantage. We can use the rhythms of life to plan, schedule, choose and create experiences that optimize our quality of life.

Do you want more time with your kids? Do you want an easier flow through challenging work projects? Do you want rest that satiates and restores you?

If yes, with this blog, you have found a place that offers information, resources, training and support to help you open to the flow of Time as an active participant rather than as passive subject.

For example:

Knowing when the Moon is Void of Course, we can choose to indulge in rest, relaxation, quiet cuddle time or mundane organizational tasks rather than force forward when our satellite, the Moon, has lost connection. With the Moon out of receiving range, our bodies feel this void on the physical energy level; focus is dimmed because the gravitational pull is toward reflection in contrast to action, and work projects meet with delays and difficulties. Work arounds involve knowing when the Moon is void and planning and scheduling accordingly. You can receive direct support about this here.

Knowing about Dark of the Moon days, and planning and scheduling accordingly, enhances dissolution of what has ended with the close of the Lunar cycle. This awareness allows for clear and uncluttered space to receive in the new cycle, with the restart button of each New Moon.

Observing the simple shifts of Sunrises and Sunsets imprints within our psyches the living awareness that we are in sync with the flow of Life.

Additional products to help identify and align with natural cycles, as well as services in support of shifting to an organic experience of Time, are in the works.  The Void of Course Moon Club is already up and running.

If you are not already a subscriber to this newsletter, consider subscribing, you can use the subscription button to the top left, and take advantage of special offers as online training, guided imagery relaxations and Lunar Rhythms Energy Club options come to market.

Love and Peace, and let’s flow!

Living Yes

Relaxing into co-creation is part of the transformative shift that we are in now, as we transition from life in 3D to life in 5D. One of the most significant changes with this shift is that we respond to personal triggers with measured choice rather than reactive impulsivity.

This change is possible because we can now, consciously, come from a place of trust within ourselves, our Souls, and in living connection with a loving Universe. Please feel these words at the heart level; feel exactly what it means to trust in yourself and your Soul and your living connection with a loving Universe. Feel what it means to be part of, to belong, rather than feeling alienated and alone.

Life in 3D was based on comparing and competition; we could not ever be good enough. In 5D we are more than enough, we ARE part of and we belong.

Here is an example of how this shift showed up for me: Sunday’s extended Void of Course Moon impacted me to the extent that I had to go home and rest, rather than stay out and shop for groceries, even though I was close to the shops I frequent.

On Monday, rested and ready, I went back out into the world, for grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and our wonderful Kroger’s. There was also a trip to Michaels on the day’s itinerary. I had an extended block of time to enjoy these errands and did not feel rushed.

For optimal efficiency, my first stop was Michaels and then a nearby Kroger’s.  On my way, I passed by my favorite coffee shop, Coffee Emporium in Hyde Park, Cincinnati, Ohio.  I am not a café person; unless meeting a friend, I do not take time to stop, sit and enjoy a cup of tea.  This day, however, stopping for a relaxing cup of tea was the number one option before me, almost an imperative. The self-talk was that if I want a more relaxed life, I have to take more relaxing opportunities.

Parking was difficult; I did not have change for meters and the non-paying spots were taken.  It took two trips around the area and then I found a space and pulled in. I was determined to take this action step toward a more relaxed life and the start button said “Now.” The obstacle of difficult parking could not deflect me.

On the short walk to the café, I encountered this:

img_1464-wooly-moth

My heart leaps with nature’s surprise gifts, like this this beautiful, furry creature crossing my path. I got tea and found a cozy place to sit outdoors. Once settled, I reflected on the meaning of the appearance of this beautiful, wooly brown caterpillar. I understood the message to be about abundance and beauty, its colour was magnificent and it radiated life with its determined crawl. I also knew that this sighting spoke to change and transformation.

In this cozy outdoor setting, sipping hot tea and with the ambiance of relaxation all around me, I thanked this creature for its visit, and started researching on my phone the metaphysical meaning of brown wooly caterpillar. I let the meanings sink in, accepting the ones that had relevance. Soaking in the significance of this caterpillar’s visit, I relaxed more deeply, breathing in the chill fall air, savouring the nature that surrounded me and absorbing the quiet slowness of this outdoor café.

img_1466-outdoor-cafe-2-with-sunlight

I learned through the research that brown wooly caterpillars can take up to 14 years to transform. Reflecting on this rather long timeline, a shaft of light broke through my consciousness, an opening awareness that I am on track with my own transformation, too. Slow, steady, consistent, always saying yes when the invitation comes to transform more wholly into my new life: relaxed, co-creative, expressively creative, grounded in trust, belonging, embodied empowerment, money materializing, and soulfully connected with others, with Nature, with Life.

Relaxation is key to our new lives as conscious co-creators. Our nervous systems have to be in neutral, not stuck in fight/flight or freeze responses, not in reactionary mode. We have to be with the expanded, interactive vibrancy that is all around us. When this relaxed synchronization happens, we can sense, see, feel, listen, receive and say Yes to incoming communication from the Living, Loving Field. We can open to the wholeness of our new Lives in this New Time by doing things differently, by changing habits, by opening to more fulfilling ways to fuse with Life.

How about you? What special guests are showing up in surprise visits for you? What is your call to action to make wanted changes in your life?

If you would like a companion guide to help you open to the experience of living life rooted in trust rather than reaction, contact me. I have years of experience with deep listening, intuitive sensing and gentle reflection and I am a big fan of the many opportunities available now for easing into this quantum shift.

Drum roll: Void of Course Moon Club

Have you ever wanted to harness the ups and downs of your energy cycles as they relate to productivity? The Void of Course Moon Club meets this need. For a nominal fee of $7 US dollars a month, you get Void of Course Moon (VOC) times for one of the following time zones, Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific, London, UK. These VOC times are delivered by email with each New Moon of your subscription for lunar the month ahead. A narrative story about working with the Void of Course Moon is included in this monthly email, along with the call in information for a monthly conference call to discuss planning and scheduling with the Void of Course Moon times.

Who Benefits from Joining

Joining this Club benefits those who struggle with time management, those who experience stress from busyness or overwork to the detriment of well-being. Crafters and makers, all manner of self-employed entrepreneurs, can find benefit in this Void of Course information. Anyone who is employed and feels the pressures of producing against all odds may also find benefit in learning about and working with Void of Course Moon times.
The reason this club has benefit for such a wide spectrum of folk is because living in sync with Void of Course Moon times is one of the best techniques for experiencing time as a fluid, inner experience. Working with Void Moon helps open the experience of body as timer and provides vivid contrast for the constrained experience of time as an external controller outside of direct, physical experience.

Why Now?

Since the conditioning of mechanical time (produce at all costs, no matter how the body feels) runs deep within our culture, it can take years to feel and appreciate the value of flowing with the Moon, our natural Timer. In other words, opening the door to this club does not mean that aligning with natural cycles is an easy experience. Joining this club will be a learning experience and can be a fun experience.

Void of course Moon times can best be explained by sacred geometry, which is everywhere in our lives. The next time you are at a meeting or a social gathering, look to see who is directly opposite you. These sitting or standing configurations speak to the energetic alignments among those present. For example, the person 180 degrees apart from you is most likely to be someone who supports you totally or someone with whom an “opposition” exists. You can also look to those sitting at 45 degree angles from you; there is likely to be some friction in these relationships, some dynamic to work through to come to a fuller, more mutually appreciative understanding.

“As above, so below.” These words suggest that what is happening here on Earth is reflected in the skies above. Sacred geometry also shows up in the ever moving planets and stars in the sky. A Void of Course Moon occurs when the Moon is not making any aspect of geometric shape with the planets. The technical definition goes deeper than this, however, for our purposes here, keeping it to basics helps with the very real challenge of changing our relationship with time, moving past centuries of conditioning and opening to the direct, visceral experience of time as a living flow.

The great scientist Buckminster Fuller taught that energy is contained in form. With a Void of Course Moon there is no geometric form to contain the energy. The physical experience can be felt as void, like energy flowing through a sieve, into the void.

IMG_1307                                                       Into the Void, photo by Aureal Williams

This is why there is a business advantage to knowing about these times and using them for planning and scheduling and this Club helps with that. During a Void of Course Moon it can be challenging to stay focused. If we keep pushing forward during a Void Moon time, we might experience losses, uphill battles, and often, the need to apply extra effort or redo things. Working smarter, not harder definitely applies to those who follow Void of Course Moon times.
The Void Moon occurs every two and one half days for varying amounts, from minutes to more than 24 hours. These are optimal times for rest and reflection, for releasing and receiving information from the invisible planes. They are times to allow rest for our bodies, minds and Souls. Rest is an integral component of the productivity cycle and nature is a great teacher.

Bonus Benefit!

Aligning with the void Moon times for planning and scheduling also provides a blueprint for present moment living based on the wisdom of Body as Timer. These skills are key now, as we transition to the New Life/New Time of 5th Dimension living.

It is a tumultuous time as we make this transition. Come join this Club and learn how to align with the flow of the Moon. The inner alignment is already there, as the body feels these rhythms on subtle levels. Tt is now time to bring this subtle body awareness into consciousness and support ourselves more fully with human/nature integration. Come, join the Club!
