Fourth Quarter Week Friday, March 25, 1:38 AM, EDT to New Moon, April 1, 2022 2:25 AM

Is there anything more human than letting go? We grow, build, and accumulate, and poof, we must let it all go. The ever-constant need to release is inherent in being human. Attachments develop, though, and it is sometimes hard to let go.

This closing week of the Lunar Cycle provides a practice ground for letting go. We can let go of efforting, who we think we are, how we thought it would turn out, and relationships that once meant the world to us. We can let go of work that has become a drudge.

Letting go is a critical skill for accessing the 5th Dimensional consciousness. The energy field within and around us is changing to a light-filled experience. We can no longer carry the old baggage. We must release what no longer serves or interests us in this quantum leap of evolution. While the process of release can be excruciating, the post-release experience can be freeing.

This week, consider inviting expansion through letting go. Scan emotions, feelings, habits, choices, people, actions for what no longer serves you in the way they once did. Permit yourself to let go of what is outdated.

Allow the dissolving Light of the Moon, the approach of complete darkness, the energetic imprint of slowing down, to open the release valve on what no longer serves you. Release, and be ready in a week or ten days, with the next new Moon, to spiral up on that next turn of the arc of your life. Release, and become you.

 Suggested Ways for Letting Go

  1. Admit that it hurts
  2. Provide yourself with TLC for releasing what was once so important and valued
  3. Recognize through history, collective and personal, that release is the human process
  4. Maybe have a practice where you say with each breath, I breathe out, I release, then name what you are releasing
  5. The pain of releasing is replaced by Lightness of Being. Let that sensate experience in, with acknowledgment, when it comes

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

Monday, March 28, brings an extended Void Moon time. Mondays can be challenging without a Void Moon and during a Void Moon Monday, forging ahead, especially in this last week of the Lunar Cycle, can result in a war of wills, yours and the Divine Will.

Cosmic timing is in play, and thought does not have access to all the puzzle pieces. Allow your body to be an intuitive navigator. What does the sensate body want and need? Ask the mind to stay out of it.

Resting is part of the productivity cycle, and information is power. Monday, March 28, because of the 4th Quarter Lunar week and a 14-hour Void Moon, is a day to listen deep from within and respect the dip in the doing.

What to do while you wait during a Void Moon

Take a walk ~ Take a nap ~  Daydream  ~ Write in your journal ~ Play  ~  Take a bubble-bath  ~  Clean your house, cupboards, closets, basement, office, files, computer files, old email  ~   Rest  ~ Do creative expressive play ~

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:

Saturday, March 26, 7:51 PM to 8:56 PM  EDT

Monday, March 28, 10:12 AM to 12:33 AM Tuesday, March 29 EDT

Thursday, March 31, 2:37 AM to 5:31 AM EDT

Blessed Be. May you have happy endings this week to prepare for New Moon’s new beginnings next week.

Fourth Quarter of Lunar Cycle, Wednesday, February 23, 2022, 5:32 PM EST

Fourth Quarter of Lunar Cycle, Wednesday, February 23, 2022, 5:32 PM EST to  New Moon, March 2, 2022, 12:36 PM

There is forward movement since retrograde planets have turned direct and winter hibernation in North America ends. This week, though, the opportunity is to pause and reflect before the New Moon on Wednesday, March 2.

If you feel the slowdown as a sensate body experience, please celebrate that subtle awareness and consent to its call to stillness. Connecting with the cycles of nature, as our far back ancestors did, aligns with cosmic opportunities. It is not always opportune to move full steam ahead.

The magic of the Universe is often delivered by being in the right place at the right time. So, too, does being “on time” with the Universe. Our Moon teaches us this enduring rhythm of in and out, cycle upon cycle. Letting go of our conditioned relationship to Time – constantly staying in the actively producing mode — limits outcomes. Opening to Time as a felt experience allows for imagination to do its work and for inspiration to rouse us and for intuition to guide us.

Inspired imagination that ignites intuition is abundantly accessible when we align with the quiet, still, reflective geocosmic energy near the end of each Lunar Cycle. This week is one of those times.

The experience of aligning with the ebb and flow of the Moon is in our blood and bones. Simply aligning with the Moon’s cycle breaks us free from the false conditioning of Time as external control. That conditioned, in contrast to felt, relationship with Time wastes opportunity and limits possibility.

Slow your roll this week. Feel the pull to gravity as this Lunar Cycle comes to its end. It is okay to let go, and by doing so, we make room for the fresh starts that come with each New Moon.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

The Void of Course Moon times this week are relatively short, except for the dark of the Dark Moon, the last day of this Lunar cycle when the Moon is void for 19 hours. (See the exact times below.) We are under the spell of a Dark Moon and a Void Moon. That day is prime Time to rest and tend to ultimate self-care and intuition gathering.

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, February 24, 10:24 PM to Friday, February 25, 11:27 AM

Sunday, February 27, 9:50 AM to 1:36 PM

Monday, February 28, 9:02 PM to Tuesday, March 1, 3:54 PM EST

Week 4 of Lunar Cycle January 25, 2022

 

Week 4 of Lunar cycle, Tuesday, January 25, 8:42 AM to February 1, 2022, 12:48 AM, EST

New Physics tells us that emotions, inspirations, and intentions create our reality. Rudolph Steiner taught that imagination, inspiration, and intuition are vital life qualities for creativity. Based on these paths to co-creation, instant manifestation becomes a reality.

To create in this way, it helps to feel the still point between breaths, the space between thought, and the gap between cycles. The Buddhists call this “Minding the Gap.”

This is a week to mind the gap. The fourth week of the Lunar Cycle is home to the gap between cycles. As one cycle ends and the next begins, it is possible to feel the switch between cycles, the Void, the Emptiness, as a visceral experience. Sinking into the gap between Lunations allows us to access the pure potential within the Void.

Vedic astrologer Robert Wilkerson writes about how ancient sages honored this still point. “In the language of physics, the Brahman would be infinite creativity in a resting or seemingly non-vibratory state, realized as Emptiness or a Void.” This is because energy moves toward the Infinite so fast that distances between wave frequencies overlap. The effect is apparent stillness. Yet, the state of emptiness is a full and active process.[I]

The gap between cycles is one fleeting moment. The entire week four of Lunar Cycles prepares us for opening to that transcendent moment. To claim this visceral experience of potency, consider slowing down in this last week of the Lunar Cycle. Prepare to be open to the shift between one cycle ending and the next cycle beginning. I can share through direct experience that it is possible to feel this exquisite Void, momentarily and quite subtly, yet as an authentic experience. It might take years of practice to feel at this subatomic level, which is okay.

The value in aligning with this shift between cycles, whether the Moon’s Cycle or the Sun’s cycle or the breath’s cycle, or the cycle between heartbeats, is a direct experience of belonging. The experience is Oneness with All That Is. In this place of vibrant stillness, we can let go, rest, and know that all is well. We sink into the Void where we co-create fulfillment.

If we can let go of the programming that constant movement gets us where we want to go, the fourth week of a Lunar Cycle can be filled with rich rewards. The ebb and flow reveal the prizes of life, and our loving Moon models the eternal ebb and flow rhythm like no other.

 Void of Course Moon Times this Week

Another week of relatively short Void Moon times, especially for the US. Even though the Void times for Europeans, Australians, and New Zealanders occur during standard working hours, they are not too long.

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, January 27, 12:28 AM to 2:35 AM, EST

Friday, January 28, 2:00 PM to Saturday, January 29, 4:29 AM, EST

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Void Moon

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

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

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

The Void Moon Times this week include:

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

Blessed be!  See you next week!

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.

Blessed be!

 

See you next week!

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.

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. If you want more information before then, contact me.

Here are the dates and times for the New Moons in 2017.

Many blessing wishes as you align your Light with Moon Light.
