Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth… This is the real message of love. — Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
Tonight is a New Moon in the constellation of Virgo. A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle. During this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest over the coming month. Tomorrow the Moon will start waxing (coming into being full) so it is a time to bring wanted things into our life.
The earth is going through a major transition at the moment, dark is taking over light, cold is taking over warmth, death is taking over life as we speed into Autumn. We will be able to see and feel these energies all around us. We can also use these energies of transformation to become what we want to be, to shed our skin and start a fresh and make changes that will improve our lives.
The New Moon in Virgo is the perfect time to push ourselves into work, to get things done, make lists of tasks and tick them off one by one. Virgo is the worker sign and you will get great pleasure from getting jobs done. Do work on your home or start a new project or hobby. There is nothing better than working hard on something, seeing the results and reaping the rewards of your labour. You can also strengthen your financial foundation. Set your intention for a financial increase this Autumn by doing work you enjoy, such as making money from a hobby. There are many ways that you can attract abundance to yourself. For instance, adding value to the lives of others, for the share joy of it, makes you irresistibly attractive. People will want to help you. People will support your success. Your love and light makes the world a better place. You are a magnet that draws wealth to you.
The Virgo New Moon brings attention to the details and listening to your conscience or rather the wise voice from your soul. Look deep within yourself and ask yourself what it is that will make you happy, what will make you feel whole, what is it you’re lacking or missing? Make a plan of action to put right what you feel may be wrong. Don’t focus on lack or what is not working. Focus on what you have accomplished. Try new things. Make mistakes. Make many mistakes. The only way to find what works for you is through trial and error. There is a distinction between successful people and the unsuccessful. Successful people never give up. They never stop trying. Eventually you will figure it out.
This New Moon is a time for a deep cleansing, to get rid of clutter not just in the home but your emotional clutter. Let the power of the Dark Moon cleanse your spirit. Move to a place of allowing and acceptance. Set your intention for what you want to create this fall. Stay out of negative thinking. Instead ask, ‘What supports my balance?‘ Don’t project out into the future. You are not there yet. You can scare yourself with the ‘What if’s.’ Stay present. The past is history, the future is a mystery, the present is the gift. Your power and effectiveness are in the here and now.
Have a blessed New Moon, May the Goddess watch over you
I am feeling very abundant as we all begin a new week and a new lunar cycle: two sauces made from primarily ingredients grown in our little back patio. I am so thankful for the final tastes of summer.
I pruned my sage plant today and have two smudge sticks to share (one is already spoken for). Its culinary sage, but still good for burning…or you can cook with it if you want. More to come this autumn when I prune the plant back for winter.
My baby rolled over 100,000 today! Ah!
