Starting Now: The Most Productive Week of the Lunar Cycle

Second Quarter Moon, July 6, 10:14 PM to Full Moon, July 13, 2022, 2:38 PM EDT

The Second Quarter of any lunar cycle is the most dynamic for getting things done. That is because we have had one week of a restart, and in this second week, we buildup to the Full Moon boom. From there, we empty again, clearing the field for the next new cycle.

If you still live by the paradigm, Time is Money, following the ebb and flow of the Moon’s recurring rhythm might not resonate with you. If you live by the new paradigm, Time is Art, aligning with the ebb and flow of our Moon’s rhythm does make sense. You understand that the building and receding light our Moon reflects is there to guide us.

Taking this innate rhythmic pattern down to the next lower common denominator, we find the in-and out-breath. We know that focusing on simple in and out breathing stabilizes us in times of stress. So, too, the Moon. If we genuinely want to get things done in powerful and effective ways, we might note which phase the Moon is in and apply our actions accordingly.

Despite the hard focus on action, this specific Second Quarter week is a social one. That is because the moment the Moon becomes Second Quarter, July 6, 10:14 PM EDT, the Sun is in Cancer, and the Moon is in Libra. Cancer and Libra are social signs; Cancer wants to nurture, and Libra wants beauty and harmony. 

With this configuration, the challenge is to stick up for oneself, to know and be clear about boundaries so that you are:

Not smothered

Not coaxed into getting along for the sake of false harmony

In the Second Quarter, the push is external, so we are pushing up against controlling attempts from others. The opportunity is to stand clear about who you are and what you want without unnecessary comprise. Permit the friction to propel you to own what you want and take clear, undistracted, power-infused steps toward that vision. The Moon is with you!

If we genuinely want to get things done in powerful and effective ways, we might note which phase the Moon is in and apply our actions accordingly.

5D Here, Now

The theme of this second week is about owning what we want, despite what those close to us might want for themselves or us. Discernment and choice are critical tools for this week.

Relationship dynamics are challenging, and it might be time to consider options if true equity cannot be delineated. Many relationships are dissolving as we raise our consciousness to the 5th Dimension. What used to be a match may start to feel mismatched.

Dissolution might appear in an intimate relationship, a job, a group, or an activity we used to enjoy and no longer find pleasurable. You might be one of the (lucky) ones who find every component of life shape-shifting around you.

We cannot, though, distance ourselves from responsibility to children. What you can do is get clear on your wants, needs, and boundaries. Identify what feels like respect and age-appropriate mutuality and put it out there. Keep coming back to your core needs; try to stop accommodating to the point of distress. Kids need clarity of boundaries, and so do you.

How-To

If you find yourself getting along to keep the peace, consider that such an outcome does not radiate peace. 5D reflects that we are worthy, that want we want and need is legitimate. If you are stuck in a grooved relationship pattern that is not working, raising the vibrational frequency within that relationship can make a difference in health and happiness for all.

You might think, feel, or experience that it is better to cave than to have deep discussions on boundaries. You might feel that you have no other options except to tolerate intolerable circumstances. If that is your experience, consider that you are operating out of your head and not your heart. A dose of self-compassion goes a long way. 

When we drop questions about our challenges down into our hearts, we open a field of resources that our minds cannot fathom. If we hold what we want in our hearts, say it out loud, and envision having it, the energetics can shift positively.

Relationships with partners, work, and the community seems easier to shape-shift than relationships with children. Parental roles as protector, teacher, and guide are long-lasting and not on a genuinely equal level. When parenting infants, toddlers, or children with physical or mental challenges, finding balance in life might be delayed. If that is the case, may you find sustaining grace, support, blessings, humor, and beauty that help you thrive within those circumstances.

Children born since 2000 are of this new age. They are our teachers in this higher dimensional consciousness. If you are in a parenting role,  please consider clarifying what you want, need, and what feels like respect to you and communicate that in age-appropriate ways to your children. Know your boundaries. Self-care, even minimal snippets of self-care, lies at the heart of well-being.

Your mind might tell you, “I cannot have what I need in this relationship.” Defining and stating your needs might scare you; however, if you take the time and space to define reasonable boundaries and communicate them calmly and with certainty, you might be surprised at the results.

5D calls for new configurations, and innovative dynamics are at play everywhere. With the children as our teachers, and if given a chance, based on age-appropriateness, they may step up to meet you and your clearly stated needs.

For those of us who track and focus on living 5D, the storyline of equality continues to evolve. This challenge is not over, despite what the outer circumstances might reflect. Allow your heart to gravitate to loving self-care within all of your relationships.

If you want to explore how to identify, define, and communicate your boundaries in light of 5D consciousness, reach out here.

When we drop questions about our challenges down into our hearts, we open a field of resources that our minds cannot fathom.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

For the United States, Canada, and Europe, Thursday’s July 7 four-hour Void Moon occurs during the evening and overnight hours. Except for people working nighttime shifts, there is little disruption to output.

It is the same minimal disruption for Sunday’s July 10 four-hour Void Moon in the United States and Canada. Getting out of bed on Sunday morning might be a challenge for Europeans and with a slow start to the day.

Monday’s July 11 seven-hour Void Moon affects Europeans during the early morning hours on Tuesday, July 12. This Void Moon occurs overnight for the US and Canada.

The exact times, and a time converter link, are below. In summary, the Void Moons this week assist Americans and Canadians with expanded depth during the dream state and impact the productivity of Europeans with short void pulls on Sunday and Tuesday morning.

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:

Thursday, July 7, 9:04 PM to Friday, July 8, 1:15 AM EDT

Sunday, July 10, 12:34 AM to 4:34 AM EDT

Monday, July 11, 9:42 PM to Tuesday, July 12, 5:01 AM EDT

This New Moon Spirals us into a Dance of Integration

New Moon, June 28, 10:53 PM to Second Quarter Moon, July 6, 10:14 PM EDT

Each New Moon spirals us higher, clearer, and cleaner into our becoming. The New Moon of June 28 welcomes us into a spiral dance of integrating vibrations–visible to invisible, feeling with knowing. It is an oceanic New Moon. If we allow time and space to recognize body intelligence, we might move progressively toward what we want for ourselves and humanity.

The New Moon is a time of action and new beginnings. If you have not already done so, allow this New Moon to initiate the shift of your modus operandi from mind to body. Your felt experience, intuition, imaginations, and inspirations are in the driver’s seat now. If you continue to operate from mind as the base of control, notice how far you get.

When we create the space, time, and discipline to listen to our body’s messages and intuitive knowing, we co-create the unfolding that delivers fulfillment.

This Moon helps us do that because its energies are about feeling through the body. This New Moon is also about nurturing self in ways that comfort, restore, and connect.

Please consider letting the Moon and her wavy light into your life. Feel how the sight of her sparks inner recognition. Feel how aligning with Her ebb and flow connects you with the natural world and keeps you on track. There is no ambivalence in our Moon’s love for you.

5D Here, Now

The 5D note this week is about how we navigate our lives through body intelligence. The mind has led the way for a long time, and that time is up. We are multidimensional beings, and the mind is out of range reception with multidimensional capacities.

We access multidimensionality through feeling, body wisdom, intuition, sensate perceptions, the dream state, inspirations, imaginations, and beauty that sparks the heart open. The mind has been helpful; however, it is not the leader these days. Body wisdom is the new leader, the latest upgrade, the newest version of current technology that connects us.

While AI takes more prominence in modern life, the divinely given, natural body and heart knowing is foolproof. The more we can activate our inner knowing and trust our life’s decisions to body intelligence, intuition, and higher consciousness, the stronger our connection with the noosphere, the land of invisible knowing. The more we build confidence and trust in ourselves, the more this inner confidence shows up as sovereignty. Nothing is more robust than the truth that we are powerful beings with infinite potential to solve and resolve challenges.

It might not seem like that now, given the world’s circumstances. Remember, though; the old ways are not dying gracefully; they are going out kicking and screaming. Watch as the old ways dissolve. We are in a transition period and are accountable for whether we stay in the presence of our power or stay stuck in what is dying.

Staying focused on the possibilities is challenging. It takes staying informed about what sparks beauty and nurturance for you, what truly feeds you. It takes connection with a community that supports you and your vision. Fear is not nourishing. Embodying your presence and your power is nourishing.

How-To

How do you switch from being directed by the mind to being led by sensate perception? How do you absorb the reality of the cultural shocks and keep the focus on what you want for yourself and humanity?

One way you transmute these contradictions is to remember that you are a multidimensional being. In the image that goes with this post, you see a body surrounded by light waves. That is us. Our energy fields perceive invisible energies. Everyday experiences of indivisible energies include experiences in the dream state and thinking of someone far away, either someone who has died or is geographically distant. The heart knows that these connections are live, real. It is our conditioning that only trusts what is tangible.

Our energy fields perceive invisible energies

The world’s wonder, magic, and miraculous beauty tell us that what is intangible can be trusted. We have free choice regarding which channels of multidimensional communications we receive and acknowledge. Our souls know. We can allow ourselves the space, time, and practice to live a soulful life.

When we live by the soul in contrast to the mind, we can latch onto those multidimensional vibrations that lead the way to our fullest becoming. The present is tough; by staying faithful to our heart’s truth and connecting to like-minded others, we can transcend the chaos and confusion of our turbulent culture and stay on the path of living in the highest vibrational frequency. It is where you look. It is not about looking away; it is about looking within.

If you would like to discuss how to cultivate the practice of looking within, living with multidimensional consciousness, of switching modus operandi from mind to heart and body, reach out here.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

This week there is a four-hour Void Moon that affects the Western half of the United States and Canada the most during regular business hours on Thursday, June 30.

Accomplished: We Reach Wind Down Week

Fourth Quarter Moon Phase, June 20, 2022, 11:11 PM to New Moon June 28, 10:53 PM

This lunar week we can let go and release. We can take a breath and relax in the warm summer breeze. We can look up at the sky and see the vastness of our accomplishments, even if they have not yet taken form. This week, we celebrate living our best life in the comforting, caressing cycle of ebb and flow.

This week we can stop for a tea and say yes, I can afford to sit on the patio, sip this tea and watch the sky. If you say yes to moments of respite, you might be surprised at what is gifted to you by letting go.

Like a glimpse of the Moon in the morning blue sky. Or birdsong. Or the feathery caress of a summer breeze. The smile of a child. Any of these life treats can happen and more if you stop for a minute. And this is the week to factor in a few rest stops.

In this last week of the lunar cycle, we can acknowledge a month well lived in the flow of creating, accomplishing, and releasing. We can reflect on what worked this month and what we want to pick up again with enthusiasm after the Moon turns new.

Enjoy this week. Let your heart calm. Allow your breathing rhythm to slow. Your muscles relax. Dream dreams of uninhibited imagination for the upcoming cycle of creation starting with the New Moon next week. For now, rest in your accomplishments; acknowledge them. Slow down so you can fully release what is completed. Then, there is space to open to inspiration for the next Lunar cycle.

5D Here, Now

Unconditional love is one of the 5 Pillars of Access to 5D Consciousness. In this divided world, how do we love unconditionally? It helps to remember that unconditional love is our natural state. A receptive, radiating pulsation is ground zero for the cosmos and the human being.

Defenses build up over time through unintegrated trauma from this and other lifetimes. Unconditioned love is our natural state, which is why it feels so comforting when we experience it. It is a known entity.

In this last week of the lunar cycle, we can take a minute and get to a state of unconditional love for ourselves. This lunar week is a resting phase. We can put our feet up and shed judgment, remorse, guilt, and fear. Please consider letting go of something that blocks your love of self. Embrace your goodness, your earnestness, your intention, your longings, your dreams, and your visions. Open to your good heart. Maybe in a quiet moment of reflection, you will hear something you can joyfully celebrate about yourself and your path in life.

Please share in the comments or email me privately at aureal@5dherenow.com. I want to celebrate with you.

The Full Moon Pivot, from Creating to Sharing

Full Moon Phase, July 14, 2022, 7:52 AM to Fourth Quarter Moon Phase, June 20, 2022, 11:11 PM

It is that time of the Lunar month when we switch directions from in to out. Every moment of every day calls on us to assess that core choice. Yet, the Lunar Cycle helps embody this switch in visual and visceral ways.

It’s challenging to align with the ebb and flow of the Moon. We might feel the conditioning to keep our heads down and keep the focus on producing, no matter how our body feels. In 2022, we are far removed from the Indigenous living that reflects our connection with nature in all that we do.

Self-awareness helps us stay with the current. Identifying and caring for our feelings and needs keeps us present.

The Center for Nonviolent Communication (NVC) has two inventories that can be helpful as we flow with our Moon. The first is a feelings inventory. We can move through the feeling unencumbered when we own what we feel, free of labeling as good or bad.

One central tenet of NVC is that under every feeling is a need. Once we identify the feeling, we can explore the need that drives the feeling.

We are spiritual beings living a human life. How we feel is not always pretty or peaceful. Feelings are messengers, and untended feelings block our flow.

Performing feelings and needs audits during a Full Moon can be an effective way of self-care that helps us lighten up and flow with the Moon.

How to use these inventories:

  1. Carve out quiet time to review the feelings list. Circle the feelings you recognize as being current. Maybe do a relaxation technique, like gentle, rhythmic breathing, and go back to the list and pull out the top three feelings. Then identify the top feeling.
  2. Next, take out the needs list. Maybe continue with the relaxing breaths to get to a calm space where you can be curious and kind. Review the needs list to see what needs lie underneath your top feelings.
  3. Circle as many needs as apply to you. Then, note the top three needs, then the top need. Embrace the core need that fuels your core feeling
  4. Acknowledge the legitimacy of that need
  5. Ask your intuition how that need can be met
  6. Over the following days or weeks, stay in touch with how the need is getting met. If the need is not getting met, ask your intuition, pray, meditate, journal, draw, and use any tool you have to help you get that need honored and included in your life
  7. You can ask a friend or a family member to do this audit with you.

Please share your experiences and insights in the comments section. That is also a place to ask questions if you have them.

In this Full Moon week, may you anchor in your Coeur, your heart, and shine your light, mirroring our Moon’s endless teaching of the reciprocal rhythm of life, receiving, and giving.  

5D Here, Now

As we talk about the shift from inner to outer, self to other, in this week’s Lunar phase focus, let’s look at the capacity of 5D where Sovereignty and Unified Harmony co-exist. Consciousness at the level of 3D cannot grasp the experience of being sovereign and inclusive. Indigenous Peoples have modeled sovereignty and inclusion. Those working consciously with the shift to 5D consciousness can look to indigenous cultures to see how they combine being sovereign and inclusive.

In contemporary society, humans have been conditioned by an overlord boss and a subservient server-class system since the Industrial Age [i]  Fast forward to the current imprint of the billionaires and the rest of us. This outdated programming is changing. Please note DeAndre Brown’s TikToks, where he shows acceptable work boundaries.

The tide is turning, and more people like DeAndre Brown say yes to living sovereignly as a non-hierarchal part of the whole.

The work of the Nonviolent Communication community and many other groups around the world teach that self-empathy and self-care are at the center of well-being. As each recurring lunar cycle starts with building the self into a creative expression that can be shared during the second half of the cycle, we start, too, with self-care and self-empathy.

We must stop the war within ourselves before putting fires out around us.

In case you have not seen it, I highly recommend viewing Pam Gregory’s YouTube video Ghosts in the Theatre – YouTube. My direct experience of Pam’s teaching is that it helps uplift to the highest vibration, the highest self-care vibe possible for these challenging times.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

I have been waiting for this – a daylong Void Moon in my timezone. I consider Void Moons like snow days or playing hookey. As I have written earlier, I feel these void times in my blood and bones and find it impossible to produce during them. I plan and schedule accordingly.

As you see in the times listed below, our Moon is Void of Course, all day in the Eastern Time Zone for the United States and Canada on Tuesday, June 14, 2022. An extended Void Moon during regular business hours also affects other time zones in these countries. For Europe, the times occur in the evening, and for Australia, and New Zealand, during the middle of the night.

If you are curious, start tracking your energy levels, productivity, and ability to focus during void Moon times. Please share your experiences in the comments section.

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.

This Lunar Week Leads Us to Crescendo

Second Quarter Phase, June 7, 2022, 10:40 AM to Full Moon Phase, June 14, 2022, 7:52 AM

This is the week that brings the Boom! Last week we started new; this week, we build toward fullness. In this second Lunar week, we are more energetic, encouraged, and empowered to propel our projects and creations forward.

There is a catch during this second week, though. Those in bodies graced with menstruation know the direct effect of the few days just before the period starts. You know it is coming, and the tension is taut. It is the same experience for everyone the few days before the Full Moon. We know the release is coming, yet the crescendo remains out of reach no matter how far we extend our grasp. We must wait.

This longing to connect with release can be experienced as frustration. We can reframe the delay, the waiting, and the yearning by understanding that this stretch to release is a rich part of the process. 

A yogic approach to life helps with this longing phase. Literally or metaphorically, stretch yourself into the overarching reach that culminates in the Full Moon. This is when more is revealed. The valve opens, and the flow pours forth. This is like holding that yoga pose for a few seconds longer. This is like accepting the gentle touch from a wise yoga teacher to get in just a little closer alignment with what is at the end of your reach.

These final stretch days occur from Saturday, June 11, to the Full Moon on Tuesday, June 14, at 7:52 AM EDT. Tend to your feelings with patience and corral your thoughts by turning them to the favorable winds.

In the first half of this Second Quarter week, feel the passion for creating. Then in the second half of the week, feel the stretch of extension beyond what you could imagine. Soon your energies will meet with the cosmic powers of the Moon in her fullness. The Light of release, freedom, realization, and fulfillment blazes here.

Create and wait. Wait with full extension of arms, heart, possibility, and inner knowing that your gifts of creation are about to meet the full light of an open and receiving sky.

5D Here, Now

After many years of not writing, I started blog posting about a year ago to enter the conversation about 5D. I was writing a book and could not write directly about 5D because the book was taking shape.

The book is now published, 5D, Ordinary Descriptions of an Extraordinary Shift, and it connects the dots to the collective quantum changes that led to this rise in consciousness. The book is a basic primer for understanding what is happening in this shift to 5D.

Regarding the blog posts, I knew that one of the pillars of access to 5D is a new relationship with time. As an astrologer specializing in deep space and time cycles,  I know natural time cycles well, and I live them.

For four decades, I have felt the ebb and flow of the Lunar month and the Void Moons in my blood and bones. I started writing this weekly blog from the perspective of two things: the recurring Lunar phases, and the Void Moons. It has been a surprise that there is something new to say each week I sit down to write.

Now that 5D consciousness is more accessible, some readers have shared that it might be helpful to include examples of how we move from 3D to 5D. What does it look like and feel like, and how does the shift show up;?

Starting with this post, I include 5D experiences that I have had, hoping that shared experience might spark awareness about how 5D comes calling. The more we share, the easier it is to understand our experiences.

Recently, I have had a visceral experience of the surrounding space expanding. Of stepping up and onto a broader, more expansive vista. A bigger field. I imagine it is like the wagon train travelers coming from the East and experiencing the West’s vast open land and sky. My experience is like that, of a grand opening lifting me to a new plateau. The other experience is being pushed out of what was and into what is.

Are you feeling the cosmic pull to be bigger in your life than ever before?

If you feel fear on reading these words, please take a breath. Note that you have been growing from the first moment of your conception. The growth on offer is now more prominent, bolder, and broader than any previous growth development. The growth leap is quantum. We are up to it, or it would not be on offer.

Raising frequency is there for the taking, yet it requires expanding ourselves and releasing what no longer works.

Many people talk about decluttering. Some have already let go of belongings for which taking space was their only function. It is the same dynamic of letting go of people and habits, foods, and behaviors that have gone stale. We must release the limitations of habit, belief, and perception that hold us back from life in 5D.

It is impossible to live in 5D from the same level that we lived in 3D. We need to shed layers upon layers of the old and open wide to the new. The time is now to step up and out. The anchor is you—your intuition, your long-held goals, dreams, wishes, and longings.

False humility is a trapdoor of 3D. We are unique, and no one is better than the other. We must claim our uniqueness as we stand together in 5D. Being humble and hidden and deferring no longer works. It never did work, yet it was functional for the 3D environment. We now have access to 5D, and the gifts we have grown over eons are coming into light and consciousness.

False humility is a trapdoor of 3D

Aureal Williams

We are not used to naming our powers, yet we have to become used to doing so. In 5D, everyone’s bright light shines. How do you know your unique gifts? The Universe is broadcasting them to you now. Through feedback you receive from people in your life, groups, associations, friends, and relatives, even people new to you reflect what they see. 

You have known your special gifts in a glow-in-the-dark kind of way. With the platform expanded, the lights shine on who you are and what you bring. The experience is like a call and response from the Universe. Saying yes empowers and uplifts you. Saying yes plugs you into expanded potential.

I am inclusive and love unconditionally. I live felt empathy. Your turn. What is your highlight capacity as we live in 5D consciousness?

Please share your unique gifts in the comments or email me at aureal@5dherenow.com. Consider this a practice session where you own and use who you are and what you have. Let’s beam our lights together, so the darkness in our world dims through our collective shining bright lights.

Blessed, blessed be.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

I know that the Void Moon matters related to productivity and outcomes. I feel the Void Moon in my blood and bones and find it extremely hard to focus and work during Void Moon times.

Consider tracking the Void Moon times if your physicality links to the Moon’s ebbs and flows, and Her stops and starts. Doing so can help you plan and predict energy levels. Using the Void Moon as a productivity tool can save your body and resources wear and tear.

The work of dreaming, daydreaming, journaling, pondering, and resting are highly rewarded during Void Moon times. As you explore this timing for yourself, consider that rest is part of the productivity cycle.

Around the world, the Void Moon times are short this week. For those in the Eastern or Central Time US and Canada zones, Wednesday morning, June 8, is affected; this translates to evening downtime for European time zones.

Friday, June 10, for people in the Eastern and Central US and Canada time zones, might feel like starting the weekend early. Those in Western and Mountain time zones, US and Canada, might enjoy a break in the early part of Friday, getting back to work in the afternoon.

For readers in Europe, the Void Moon times this week occur in the late afternoon and evening hours, with little disruption to a daytime work schedule.

May you realize the Moon blessing you through her phase flow and Void Moon respites wherever you are in the world.

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:

Wednesday, June 8, 8:09 AM to 11:23 AM EDT

Friday, June 10, 1:37 PM to 4:41 PM EDT

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

Stretch Through to Your Yes

Full Moon Eclipse, Monday, May 16, 2022, 12:15 AM EDT to Fourth Quarter Moon, Sunday, May 22 at 2:43 PM

A Lunar Eclipse occurs during a Full Moon, with our Earth positioned between the Sun and Moon. Full Moon Eclipses are doorways for release. The May 15/16 Lunar Eclipse lasts five hours and 19 minutes, with after-effects lasting six months.

Our sacred human hearts are positioned between the Sun and the Moon during this eclipse. Can you imagine the potency of this opportunity to let go of what no longer benefits us?

The word eclipse traditionally means to obscure. One celestial body covers the light of another celestial body. As we immerse into the 5th Dimension consciousness, it feels like we can enhance the language around eclipses. To me, eclipses represent a consummation of the Sun and the Moon. They come together in a Union that we humans know well, joining with the other.

This union is procreative and rich with the opportunity to be renewed in life.

May you take this opportunity to align your earthly nature between the Sun and the Moon. Even if you are sleeping during the eclipse time, it is possible to set an intention that you align your sacred heart, your body temple, and your will with the Divine Will through the cosmic dance of the Sun eclipsing the Moon with Earth in the middle. Absorb the rays. Listen, receive, intention, respect, and release.

I hope curiosity invites you on this journey. Graphics help imagination and inspiration conjure manifestation. The picture below gives the timeline for where I live on this planet. This URL links to a page where you can find the exact times of the eclipse path for your location.

During this Full Moon, consider calibrating your vertical and horizontal axes to receive the bursting potency of this time. If you know about the chakras, align with your charkas, from way above your head to below your feet. If you are not familiar with chakras, they are energy centers at the vertical core of our body. Here is a google search page to get you started.

Next, align your horizontal axis. Stretch out your arms as far as they will extend. Feel the alignment of your vertical and horizontal axes at the nexus point of where they come together within you. Feel the full extension of yourself within this cosmic moment.

Please note that your point of nexus between vertical and horizontal axes depends on what issue of personal development you are working on now. Your nexus point, where the two lines cross, might differ from your arms level.

Suppose you experiment with feeling your horizontal and vertical axes within you and stretch yourself to your full natural capacity. In that case, you are likely to experience how expansive life is for you. In 5D, the time for playing small, for hiding our light, is over. We are each needed to shine our brilliance into the world, to share our talents and capacities.

The last two weeks of every Lunar Cycle are about sharing who we are and what we have to offer. It is time to disseminate after the eclipse and until the next New Moon on May 30. Take your space and beam the new you that the releasing function of this Lunar Eclipse allows.

If you extend yourself to the natural boundaries of your fullest capacity, you will probably feel embodied. If you let go of what can be organically released through this eclipse, you are likely to feel empowered and sovereign. These are qualities of the 5th Dimension consciousness.

Yes, this aligning with the cosmos takes practice, maybe daily practice. It takes starting. Please bless yourself with the eclipse power of alignment and release that is cosmically available now. May your sacred heart open and find its pathway forward through this alignment and release.

Expanding into the Work

These times are more challenging than any of us could imagine. The ground is changing underneath us. Nothing is the same, and the new remains unfamiliar. While challenging, what is developing is brighter, fuller, freer, more creative, and enlivening than anything I have ever experienced prior.

I am here to help you move through challenges in this quantum shift to our 5D consciousness. You can schedule a time to discuss how we might work together here: calendly.com/aureal. Deep listening, compassion, and innovative approaches to helping you embody intuitive living are on the other side of that virtual chat.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

Super short Void Moon times this week. Monday for two and one-half hours, Wednesday for eight hours, and those in the United States. This happens during the night. Daytime hours in Europe are affected by Wednesday’s Void Moon. Friday, less than one hour.

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. When we have short Void Moon times, like this week, we can get on with the work. During the last half of the Lunar Cycle, that work is letting go, disseminating our wisdom and our work, emptying 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.

While multitudes of people live a Monday through Friday, 9-5, those time frames are not nature-driven. My soul, my life, and my work are nature-driven. Maybe yours, too. Please take a deep look at how you feel during Void Moons and track the outcome of work done.

Moving into Fearless Territory

Second Quarter Moon Week, Sunday, May 8, 8:22 PM to Full Moon Eclipse, Monday, May 16, 2022, 12:15 AM EDT

While there are countless influences penetrating consciousness–galactic, cosmic, atmospheric, spiritual, physical, relational–the Sun/Moon phase angle, which determines the lunar phases, provides a framework, a skeletal structure, to absorb and assimilate these myriad influences.

The Sun/Moon phase angle orients us to life. It is a fundamental structure, operational since the beginning of life. The ‘progress’ of eons overrides our sensitivity to this innate, organic rhythm, and we may have become insensitive to its role and application.

Indigenous peoples live the power of the Sun/Moon phase angle, and we can, too. Native peoples know that the ebb and flow reflected in the night sky live within us as a navigational guide to living fearlessly. Our quantum leap into 5th Dimensional consciousness also takes us into fearless territory because, in 5D, there is no fear. Aligning with the Sun/Moon phase angle can help us release fear-based existence.

In this second week of this lunar cycle, we continue to build. This week gives us the ‘ready to burst open’ energy of growing our creative initiatives, hopes, and dreams to the Full Moon delivery point and the disseminating second half of the lunar cycle. We are like a blossom ready to burst into full bloom. That full blossoming occurs during the deeply transformational Full Moon eclipse on Monday, May 16, 2022, at 12:15 AM EDT.

Grasping the basics of what phase the Moon is in and feeling it within our body helps us navigate fearlessly, upright, and with higher consciousness. The Moon’s rhythms are like our human skeletal system giving us backbone and mobility. This week’s growth challenge, the friction that fuels our bursting open, involves creativity moving past stuckness. Live fearlessly, rooted in the structural integration of your worth.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

This lunar week includes one long and two short void Moons. While the shorter Void Moon times allow for concentrated focus, the more extended Void Moon allows for much-needed rest and inner reflection. Taking this time can lead to greater productivity. See below for the Void Times this week, and convert to your timezone.

Long Void Moons can be considered “snow days.” I soak these days up because the experience is like the Universe telling me to let go and flow. I feel the lack of focus, the gravitational pull into quiet stillness, so it is not like I can effectively keep producing during these times, anyway.

With advanced knowledge of the Void Moon times, I plan and schedule. Self-employed, my work schedule is self-determined. And, because I have been burnt too many times when trying to be outwardly productive during a Void Moon time, I have learned to work around these Void times. 

While multitudes of people live a Monday through Friday, 9-5, those time frames are not nature-driven. My soul, my life, and my work are nature-driven. Maybe yours, too. If so, please take a deep look at how you feel during Void Moons and track the outcome of work done.

The Void Moon times provide an easy workaround this week as they occur for less than 30 minutes to less than three hours this week. It’s a get-to-work week, especially as we start a new Lunar Cycle. However, the wisdom remains to avoid acting on essential ventures, like finalizing a work contract, or starting work with a new client during a Void Moon time, as outcomes can be void.  

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.

Lunar Watch this Week: Let Go and Slow

Fourth Quarter Moon Saturday, April 23, 7:57 AM

Acknowledging the link between inner and outer offers a golden ticket to peace. For eons, we have been conditioned, as humans, to override the inner experience at all costs. One way to align inner with outer is to recognize the link between our energy and cosmic energies.

It used to be that one could look at the Lunar calendar and equate energy levels according to the phase of the Moon or the void Moon. Now, we must factor in solar activity and plasma bursts as we energetically align with the cosmos. If we trust the body’s wisdom, we can slow and stop with less resistance than when a mindset of forcing through attempts to push through to stay in control.

Besides the Moon, other forces pulled us to a slowdown last week. If you track space weather alerts, you already know that last week was especially active with solar events like sunspots, solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and radio wave blackouts. It is unclear how these solar activities affect human physicality, yet they do. This past week, it felt like molasses was in my blood.

It’s Elemental

Our elemental constitution gives clues regarding how easy or challenging it is to let go and be slow. We each have a specific combination of earth, air, fire, and water energies. These natural qualities are based on the elemental make-up of cosmic energies in our birth chart. However, it is possible to recognize your elemental strong suit without looking at your birth chart. The elements represent who we are and how we show up in life.

People with predominant earth or fire energy want to keep going. Earth energy is determined and needs to see to believe. Earth energy people exercise regularly, are good with finances, and are practical. Fire energy combusts with passion and blazes through obstacles to reach the end goal. Fire energy people are creative, spiritual, enthusiastic, and confident.

It is easier for people with predominant water or air energy to float and flow. People with water energy are fluid, emotional, empathic, and resourceful, like water flowing around obstacles. People with air energy are communicators, abstract thinkers, and connectors. Air people do not need to see to believe. Water energy feels, and air energy floats on the abstract rather than the absolute.

One way to maintain a sense of stability in these challenging times is to honor the body. When it needs rest, please consider resting. Watch and observe how things still get done. Rest is part of the productivity cycle. Inspiration, deeper understanding, and connecting the dots can happen when we allow space and release from the tendencies of pressure and force.

If it is challenging for you to rest, consider resting in ways that allow you to still feel productive, like exercising in nature or doing something creative.

The body is timer now. Feel the pull to stillness in the blood and the bones. Let up on forcing forward in downstream times. Allow the cosmos to support your slowing and stopping.

This week, in the last phase of this Lunar Cycle, the Moon slows down. With the ebbing Lunar Tide, you will likely feel the pull to slow down and be still. If you feel that natural rhythm in your body, may you heed it and allow for the bounty that pausing can bring.

On April 30, 2022, the upcoming New Moon is a partial Solar Eclipse. Having inner and outer resources aligned helps maximize the potent eclipse energy.

We are stretching into versions of ourselves that are fuller than we could have imagined before this leap to 5D. I am here to help you move through challenges in this quantum shift. Schedule a time to discuss how we might work together at calendly.com/aureal. I also work with astrology in an innovative way that recognizes our bidirectional relationship with the planets.

The Void Moon times this week are, again, brief. Please consider pacing yourself and your work effort during the times listed below. Efforts extended to vital projects can be wasted during Void Moon times. Work better suited to Void Moon times includes resting, daydreaming, filing, or catching up with work colleagues while taking a break.
