Tonight is a New Moon. As with all New Moons it is a time for new beginnings and fresh starts. After tonight the Moon will begin waxing which is when we ask for good and positive to enter our lives. This is an especially powerful New Moon as there will also be a Solar Eclipse.
The New Moon is in Taurus so it is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Bull. It’s time to enjoy life’s simple and physical pleasures—savor good food, and enjoy activities that bring us in touch with nature and with our bodies. It’s time to stop and smell the roses, and to become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure. With this potent Taurus energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. It’s time to make some solid yet realistic plans, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time when the Full Moon occurs.
This New Moon is ruled by Venus the Goddess of beauty and love. This is a good time to look at our personal relationships, either with family, a partner, work or friends. Look at what may need improving and how to make things better. It is also a time to work on our relationship with ourselves. To realize your inner beauty, and pat yourself on the back for all the hard work you do, give yourself credit for your achievements and allow you to like yourself.
When an Eclipse occurs it is like a reboot of psychic energy, it allows us to shed our skin and lets new energy cover us, it allows us to transform and grow with the energies of the Sun. So let’s begin this new creation of ourselves with positive radiant energy. This is a time to be grateful for all that we have in life no matter how small that may be.
Emotions are always heightened by a New Moon, you may have been feeling happy or sad for no reason, this is normal, allow your emotions to flow freely, cry, scream, shout, laugh just let it out. Do not suppress them. It is healthy to have an emotional release and let it go.
Change is always the key to eclipses. So watch to see what changes come your way, even if they seem sudden, they’ve probably been building for some time now. Stay open to the mystery and allow it to happen. A new beginning is indeed upon us.
Have a Blessed New Moon, may the Goddess watch over you.
