NEW MOON BLESSINGS!
Copyright Josephine Wall
The Dark Nights of the Moon really pulled us into some dark spaces and old wounds. We had time to reflect on the woundings we have experienced this year, and our shadow has shown us woundings that we may have inflicted on others. There has been a lot of push/pull energy with many folks not sure which way to go and getting a bit battered around by life. This has all been quite heavy going, quite dark, yet all very necessary. Remember, it’s not your job to heal the world only to heal yourself. Be fully present to yourself and what you are experiencing, don’t trick yourself out of it or distract yourself, get right in there and deal with it, you have celestial and planetary support. Clearing and healing must occur before new steps can be taken and new energy received guided by this lovely, feminine New Moon.
“This New Moon’s Sabian Symbol is, ‘Finely lettered names and mysterious lines are seen; it is a family tree.’ I know several people who are healing their entire lineage as they do their inner work. Even if you’re not yet called to do this, whatever healing work you do on yourself cannot help but resonate positively down your ancestral line!” – Benjamin Bernstein (www.ItsAllGoodAstrology.com)
It has been hard to stay grounded and it has been hard to concentrate. What you have put up with day-to-day you no longer can bear and want rid of. Things need to change; you can feel the unrest deep inside, what fitted once no longer fits because you have changed so much. Many of you don’t want to do the boring mundane stuff because you are full of expansive, creative, spiritual energy (hence the difficulty in grounding). The trick is to continue to find the balance between those lovely creative energies and being able to function in the third dimension in a grounded way.
Tiredness persists – yet underneath it is a sense of excitement, a sense of knowing that something new and wonderful is on its way, you can feel deep inside you that something is blossoming and unfurling.
September you will be relieved to know, brings lighter energy after the challenges of July and August (which by the way have made you so much stronger and more clear about what you want).
And be patient with those who don’t understand what is going on. Some people are walking around like headless chickens at the moment and are not able to communicate clearly what they want or how they feel. They may press your buttons, be aggressive and make you angry – choose not to react, instead send love to bring comfort to their confusion. They are terrified because they don’t know what is going on.
And on the other side of the coin, those that should know better don’t. There is a lot of spiritual b*ll*cks going on at the moment, almost like there has been a massive ego surge amongst so many who ought to know better. Stay well clear of them or they will take you down with them when that ego bubble bursts.
The Death Pull has been strong in some during their struggle these past few weeks. This is very shamanic; it indicates that a part of you needs to die in order to be reborn. It doesn’t mean you need to actually die; yet that is how it might feel. Take time to explore what needs to die so that you can be reborn. (If you are afraid of doing this on your own, contact me for a 1-2-1 session and I can guide you through this).
The New Moon is in Virgo. Lovely, practical, organized Virgo. Virgo represents:
Analysis/research/technology – a great Moon to start new learning/training.
Bureaucracy – has become so ridiculous that it’s trying to strangle our livelihoods.
Charity – help others less fortunate than yourself.
Health in general – have you been looking after yours?
Healing – there is a lot of healing energy available right now (aided by Chiron at the moment for all of us)
Horticulture – spending time in the garden/with plants, (I’ve found that many herbalists have Virgo prominent in their chart).
Medicine - more and more folks are turning to natural medicine and turning their backs on the pharmacon.
Organization – clearing the clutter, out with the old in with the new, ringing the changes in yourself, your environment, your work and your relationships.
Routine – time for changes and new ways of doing things in all areas of your life.
Service – to our local and global communities. Now is the time to get more involved.
Call upon Virgo’s energy to help you start this new ‘term’ in an organized way. Create new routines, new thought patterns, new ways of doing things – and do all of this with heart, with conscious mindfulness. Work with the energy to see where you can be more of service. She will show you the areas of your health that need to be nurtured right now. There is an opportunity for transformation in all of the above-listed aspects in your life this month. Step into your power through the power of this New Moon, if you work with the energies sincerely and with commitment then you can expect quantum leaps in your life (the results of which will be apparent in six months time).
Many are ready for big changes in their lives and this New Moon supports you in doing this, so go for it right now! Many who were so sure about what they wanted are now not so sure. You are on track, just stay with it, keep asking for help and listening to your inner Wise Wo/man until you receive clarity about what your new way forward will be. You need to be clear about what you want, if you are confused the Universe will be. The Universe also believes every word you say and every thought you have, so you had better make some changes and drop the stinkin’ thinking and victim words and switch into positive, affirmative thoughts and words. Remember the Universe will match your vibration, so if you constantly moan about others/your life yaddah yaddah, you will get more of the same. If you don’t want more to moan about then start talking and acting more positively!
And it can be scary when you are between the old and the new, be patient with yourself and others until you can find your way through. If you are struggling, explain to your nearest and dearest how you are feeling. Don’t be afraid to show them your vulnerability, you might just be surprised at how helpful they can be.
Being and living your new self can feel weird. It’s like every now and then you can feel like you are dropping down into your new Self, it is a strange feeling and we are all still getting used to it. You may feel exposed from time to time as you adjust. You may be feeling fearful as old shadow stuff and old issues come up for healing. You may be feeling disorientated as you start to let go of what is no longer right for you, yet you may not be sure about what the next step is. You may not be sure of yourself any more or who you are because you are metamorphosing into the true reality of who you really are (work with Butterfly medicine to help you through this phase).
The seeds (changes) you plant now will come to fruition in six months time. So stop, think, Be, plan, sow the changes and gently the transformations will occur over the coming months. We are being invited to “take the road less travelled”, to strike out for individuality (as mentioned in my previous Blog posts), creativity, unity and community.
“This Moon awakens Woman to her soul's power to master forces of psychic nature and create anew. The Virgo Moon cycle brings an alchemy to set right the world. This is the great harvest / recreate-the-world Moon; all that's shadow or prima materia of the past world cycle comes forth now to be transformed into the gold of a new creation.”
– Steve Nelson
SEPTEMBER brings more alignment and re-alignment. This New Moon makes us question every aspect of our existence.
Are we really living the dream?
Are we really acting and Being who we have dreamt of being?
Are we in alignment with our Higher Selves, our dreams and goals, who we are meant to be in this Age of Aquarius?
Are we fulfilling this potential?
What needs to change in our lives so that we are in alignment?
This month really highlights how our inner self is reflected in the outer aspects of our lives. This is the month to really sort yourself out before you can even think of offering yourself or your services to the wider community. Sort the inside out and the outside will be an effortless reflection of that (or as my favourite Heineken advert once said “Get the head right and the rest will follow.”)
Self worth is a big aspect of this New Moon and September energy. This New Moon invites you to step into the abundance that is rightfully yours. There is “a month-long Cradle supporting the healing of abundance and self-esteem issues.” However you need to be a vibrational match for it. As I mentioned above, this necessitates changing your internal and external dialogue and keeping your vibration raised (meditation, chanting, singing, flower and vibrational essences, dancing, herbs and essential oils, flowers, art and beauty). Our self worth can be reflected in the external aspects of our lives including our finances.
To help you, I have waited until today to launch our brand new ABUNDANCE FLOW Kit as the energies are right for it to go out into the world and help y’all with its abundant magic. It has all you need to keep you in abundance mode inside and out. In keeping with Virgo energy, I have put some magical plant energy into it. It includes a Spray Mist (for bringing fragrant, abundant energy into your aura and environment) and a generous sized bottle of Flower & Vibrational Essences (to keep your vibration raised from the inside in order to be able to match the vibration of abundance and keep it flowing). As a bonus I have also included my top ten Abundance Affirmations that have always worked for me over the years, as well as some top Feng Shui abundance tips.

TRUTH - I have been telling y’all over and over for the past couple of years, that we are now in the Era of Truth. I did try to warn y’all, and have been tipping you off about this for months. Over the past few weeks folks have had the truth revealed about people in their lives more clearly now than ever before and it hasn’t been easy. The Shift has really been hitting the fan at the moment. Political truths continue to be revealed as the masses, now more awake than ever before, are refusing to be hoodwinked any longer by the cr*p spewed out by government controlled media. The Age of Aquarius is awake and buzzing! People power is growing as we stand together in outrage against wars, Badger culls, etc. There is a growing sense of community both locally and globally and I am so thrilled about this, as the more we unite the more change we can effect. We are a global family and together we can do anything. Deepen your local community involvement especially with likeminded people, during the coming weeks it is essential to surround ourselves with people who feel the same, who are willing to commit to making it happen, who are happy to support each other’s goals and dreams and are actually getting off their backsides and doing something about it!
This month also invites you to truly awaken to the beauty of your Soul. Boost your self-esteem and believe that you are so beauty-full! Find beauty wherever you are despite whatever is going on. Switch off the TV and radio, go out and find some beauty. Take a walk around your garden and see the sun shining through the petals of a flower or leaf. Watch a Bee at work and follow its path for at least 10 minutes (instant meditation I guarantee). Whilst the media tries to numb our minds with horror and ugly violence, it is our job to ignore that and always choose to focus on something real and beautiful. There is plenty of beauty in your life if you open your eyes to see it. Beauty lifts your vibration and brings happiness and joy. Is there beauty in your home and/or office? If not, bring some into your environment and raise its vibration, perhaps you need some new uplifting colours, or a vase of fresh flowers.
I came across an old Abraham-Hicks quote, which I feel is absolutely spot on for the current energies:
“The only question is, what is the standard of joy that you are demanding for yourself?“
– Abraham-Hicks 2005
