NEW MOON BLESSINGS!
Hope – Inspiration – Creation - Manifestation
Last month’s Full Moon saw an increase in requests for The Healing Prayers Circle. Thank you to all of our members for taking the time to read the requests and caring about those in need. As we head towards the end of this Year of the Snake, things seem to be intensifying as the snake snaps its fangs a few more times (the Snake year ends at February’s first New Moon next year).
The New Moon on December 2nd/3rd is in freedom loving Sagittarius, the Traveller of the Zodiac, who encourages us all to have hope, whatever is going in the world or going on for us right now. It is a Moon of Inspiration uniting heaven on earth for manifestation in our lives.
SAGITTARIUS – I See / I Believe / I create from the power of my Vision
This energetic Fire sign represents exuberance, foreign affairs, travel, the outdoors, prophecy, higher mind, religion, adventure, clubs, philosophy, other cultures, sport, higher education and training, teaching, law and publishing.
Sagittarians are independent thinkers who like to live LARGE and whose personal motto is along the lines of “love me, love what I do”, in other words “love me, love my dog”, “love me, love my car” etc. They need space, as they like to be able to expand and travel unfettered through life. They are great fun and great hiking companions. Intelligent, witty and physically fit, their sociable positivity attracts positive people and things to them.
This New Moon asks us to believe, to have faith and to keep on keeping on because help and support is now at hand. Make your New Moon Wishes BIG ONES! As someone once said, make them “big, hairy, audacious ones”. Dare to ask for what you have never asked for before, dare to think big, outrageously, fabulously! See this list as the foundation for the pathway you are laying down for yourself for the year ahead and be careful not to try and rush into actioning this right now (the energies are not good for pushing ahead, and you may find yourself over-committing yet under-delivering). All that’s needed is seeded with this New Moon. As ever, balance is the key and as I mentioned in a previous Blog post, we are in a time of step-by-step building. Slowly, slowly is the way (our excitement can make us want to rush things).
We all have a destiny to fulfil; Grandmother Moon and the Universe are here to help us make it happen. Grandmother Moon loves us and believes in us, we are Her Star grandchildren and She wants us to shine brightly. She is our Grandmother, and watches over us at night filling us with lunar knowledge to help us in our material lives. Talk to Her more often, She loves that, and when Her Moon is full, train your Third Eye to absorb the Full Moon rays that She is happy to share with you when you attune to her like this.
Sagittarius inspires us to live large in a small world, to free ourselves from restrictions and anything/anyone that holds us back. Sag is holding the bolt cutters to cut you free!
Sagittarius invites you to access the Visionary within, we all have one but we allow our busy lives to override this special gift. Get creative; use a Scrying Bowl if that will help you to link back into visionary energy, sit in front of a blank piece of paper and just allow the pencil to flow over the page and see what emerges, it may be a drawing or you may write, just allow the energy to drive the pencil not you. Much can be revealed to you now. Be inspired and be excited, this is all about YOU!
Sagittarius never takes things at face value, Sag likes to check it all out and see if it/they resonate with truth. If your Truth Bell ain’t ringing, then stay well away! Sag never buys into the news or media spin, Sag sees the bigger picture and knows when someone is trying to pull the wool over their eyes.
The road ahead will continue to be bumpy from time to time but there are many Blessings ahead if we just keep the faith and believe that it will be so, that it will all work out – because IT WILL!
The Winter moons give us time to clear up the dregs of shadow that hold us back so that we can be more clear, purified and renewed by the time of the Spring Moons. We have spent the past few months clearing, breaking down, and letting go, now Sagittarius takes us into a time of breaking through (at last!) and creating the new. How exciting is that! At last we are getting somewhere. Use the current Festival of Light to signal to the Universe that you are re-lighting your flame of inspiration, your Muse is re-awakened, and you are gonna light up this world next year! Get those candles out and dedicate them every time to your New Moon Wishes, dreams and goals.
Be open to the many different ways that your New Moon Wishes may become manifest (and any goals/projects you are sending energy to right now). Some options that appear may seem a bit off-the-wall or out of your comfort zone, your instinct will be to instantly dismiss them, DON’T, you could lose out on a massive opportunity. Remember this is about us living large, outside the box we have been in for most of our lives. We need to remain flexible and open to what may present over the coming weeks.
Nausea, which felt like morning sickness (birthing your new Self/new projects), also dizziness returned due to an increase in Earthquake and Volcano activity. The Comet also disrupted sleep patterns for many of us.
This is normal for the Winter Moons and especially as we head towards Winter Solstice. This is the Going Within Time; the energies are pulling us deeper into ourselves and our shadow sides to take a look at what needs healing during the Winter Moons. Emotion arises because few of us have the luxury of time to do this, which causes inner conflict, because our outer world keeps us busy with work and planning for the Festive Season, yet our Soul longs for us to retreat and reflect.
We may also be picking up some mass consciousness stuff because of all the recent natural disasters and events. We need to remember that we are constantly changing and at quite a fast rate at the moment, therefore there will be grieving as we let go of our old selves and old way of living and being.
This occurred for enough folks to make me write about it. If you have been experiencing this, we are being urged to pay attention to what makes us feel ‘sick’ about our lives and ourselves and to do something about it.
Pain in joints and muscles as our physical body adjusts to more of its Higher Self presence.
The more love we allow to inhabit us on all levels the more room there needs to be for it, and this is the same with the Light and cosmic downloads that have been happening recently. Therefore we need to clean up our diets and practices in order to make space for our growth; otherwise we will start to feel unwell. Plenty of water, good rest, gentle exercise, spiritual practice and plenty of good food will all help.
This has been pretty awesome around the time of the last Full Moon and hasn’t stopped! We are being given lots of information in symbolic and other forms at the moment. Also a great deal of healing is occurring in dreamtime. Make a note in your Dream Journal of even the smallest snippet.
Dream Journal Tip:
To find a particular dream in a few months/years’ time, put a word or two that sums it up beside the date such as “water”, “grandparents”, “ex-boyfriend” etc, then you will be able to quickly find it later on.
It has been a heck of a year for clearing. We have all experienced loss of some kind over the past year, as have many countries and indeed our beautiful planet. Reflecting back on my personal year, my friends and family, my clients and requests from The Healing Prayers Circle, I can see that this has been happening to all of us in order for our paths to be clear, for the road ahead to be clear. That is why we have lost many that we love, they want to help us from the other side, they have freed us from the physical burden of looking after and caring for them. This gives us more time and you may have noticed that after a few months, aspects of yourself have returned such as your personal power, confidence, desire to be creative, desire to try new things etc. All of this energy had been held back because of your sense of duty to support and love those who have now crossed over.
We have all been internally clearing as well, old emotional and psychological cr*p has come up for healing and releasing. Many have changed their nutrition values and want to eat lighter and healthier now.
We have all been clearing deadwood in many areas of our lives, including changing jobs, acquaintances friends and groups, some changed home and some are planning to. Many have realised that they cannot stand any clutter around them and are chucking out more and more items that they do not love, use or need.
Mental clearing has probably been one of the most profound things this year, with many healing and clearing old patterns and belief systems, outmoded ways of thinking and dropping what sounds like other people’s, rather than your own voice of truth.
Things are getting worse there and contaminated water is affecting parts of the North American coast. This will affect all of us eventually, however there is something we can do to lessen the effects of this.
I have mentioned this several times before, but would like to remind everyone that we can all help from a distance. You can use distance healing, light transmission, etheric transmission of Flower Essences (such as our ‘Water Blessings’ essence http://www.theapothecarygarden.org/WHAT-s-NEW.html - it’s below the Festive notice); all of these can do a lot to help heal Mother Earth’s blood - the waters of our planet.
Gather in groups/circles and transmit together, use affirmations such as “I give thanks for the purity of Mother Earth’s waters”. Use visualization to send white purification light into the waters of the Earth neutralizing all radiation and other poisons, and restoring Her waters to their original pristine purity. When I stand on the beach looking at the sea I visualize purity in the water going far, far into the horizon and beyond.
Please also transmit to the governments of all countries, so that they can reverse decisions on fracking, nuclear power and other abominations that are now causing so many problems for the planet.
Please stop buying large crystals. So many crystals have been taken out of the Earth’s structure rendering it unstable. All those crystals were in the Earth for a reason and were part of its navigational set up (North has slipped several degrees because of all the mining of gold/silver/platinum/diamonds/crystals etc). The New Age movement has spawned a greed for crystals that now needs to be curtailed.
(Be very careful about programming crystals to absorb radiation, do you know how to safely cleanse and/or dispose of them?)
Use visualization to send love and healing to the core of the Earth, which is molten and unstable. There are Beings who work in the core of the Earth doing their best to keep Her stable and their job is not easy. Send love and thanks to them for all that they do.
Are you aware of the changes in yourself and your life that have occurred over the past year? Can you feel them?
Have you found yourself questioning things a lot more lately?
What do you need to do to unite your Higher Self with your physical reality to bring balance to your life?
What needs to be cleared/broken through in order for your destiny to clearly manifest?
You are not a victim to anyone/anything, reassure your inner child that all is well and going to plan, give him/her a hug often and make sure you do this every day.
Getting physical is one way to get in the flow of this Sagittarian energy; put on your rubber gloves and clean the bathroom, go for a run, do some gardening or other physical labour and really feel your body, make love (what better way to embody spiritual power?!)
This is the Moon for sowing new beliefs because we have freed ourselves from the old beliefs/limitations that held us back. We are the future and it is up to us to make it happen.
Nothing and no one can hold you back, only yourself.
Sagittarius is all about expansion, stepping out of the box, strength, living in truth and personal integrity.
After shamanic death (dying to the old way, old selves, old beliefs etc) now comes shamanic rebirth. This rebirth is slow, steady, and revolutionary.
Things do get a bit tense and intensify as we head towards Winter Solstice, so keep a sense of balance on all levels to help you triumphantly ride these Solstice energies. And we are heading for Yule/Christmas, so indulge your inner child, take him/her ice-skating, to a Christmas market, roasting marshmallows on the fire with huge mugs of hot cocoa. Take your adult self to a carol concert, help out a local charity, have a walk in the snow and get the sled out, enjoy mulled wine and mince pies with friends and neighbours. It’s a social time of year, so balance work and play and all will be well.
This New Moon is full of positive, inspiring energy – so get writing those New Moon Wishes and you may need a big piece of paper! ;-)
I believe in myself and my Vision
I am living LARGE!
I am living my Dream Life
I have faith in myself and my Life
I inspire myself and I inspire others
I have created my perfect life
All of this I do for the Highest Good of myself and others
I am willing to step out of my box and live my Vision
I am supported and loved and
I am so darn excited!
“I liberate the power and the courage that have been hidden inside myself.”
(from ‘365 Mantras for Today’)
Have an awesome New Moon y’all!
P.S. Just before I posted this update, I received a sign that has reignited a long-held dream of mine, and the reality of it coming true, (and I haven’t even written my New Moon list yet!) The power of this New Moon is already working, so send those thoughts and desires out because they are being received and actioned! xx
