The New Moon arrives on April 7th at 4:25 am PDT. Change, excitement, and higher awareness are key factors with this moon. It brings the energy of linking our past to our future which seems to be a natural flow from the full moon of March 23rd. If you have been having “old emotions” rise up to the surface for resetting, the New Moon energy should help. As new moons are all about fresh starts and new beginnings, we are being asked to truly clear the slate. All changes you make now will take root and flourish. Be on the lookout for changes on the global scene as well.
In the past, change has often been chaotic, forced upon us, but going forward it should be more orderly, structured and methodical. My personal take on this is that “we” are more in charge of implementing change in our lives. Which on one hand I find rather amusing given that many don’t like change. Yet, if we are able to accept that change brings vibrant new energy, we might just start understanding that taking charge of how change happens is the gentler approach.
What are you willing to do for yourself? It is the time to be the peaceful warrior, moving beyond your comfort zone, and standing firmly for yourself. No longer allowing anything to strong-arm you into changing, or waiting for something/someone to come along and change things for you – the chaotic forced change. Not sure why, but I feel that if we don’t start implementing change when it needs to happen, we will just bob along stuck in one place. If you take a look around, I am sure you could come up with a few people you know who are exactly in that place.
I have thought about this for a couple days and I think the simplest way for us to honor this moon is by hard boiling two eggs ahead of the time you will sit with the moon. Eggs symbolize rebirth and quintessentially life. They also symbolize breaking through, something this moon energy seems to be pointing towards. Gather one green crayon and one yellow crayon. Alternatively, you could choose to color the eggs using a mixture of 1-part vinegar, 2-parts water, and a couple drops of food coloring (blue and yellow make green). After preparing a comfortable place to sit with the moon energy, and ensuring you have enough time, call upon your angels, guides, and helpers. When you feel relaxed and centered, if you are using crayons, draw whatever comes to you on each egg using green on one and yellow on the other. Do not mix the colors. If you are dying your eggs, place them each in their color bath. While coloring or waiting for the color bath to set, meditate on what you wish to have more of in your life. In order to bring something in, you will need to release something. Example, if you wish to bring a partner into your life – you would release that which holds you in past relationships. Trust me – even when you think you have released something, if the new is not coming in, you are still being held by the past. As you are releasing from your past, see a positive light filling the space. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. We need to be aware of what we are releasing and how it might impact the choices we make going forward, which is why we need to see it being replaced with light.
Pick up the green egg, and say “I thank the past for the gifts it provided and now release it along with all negativity.” Pick up the yellow egg and say “I face the future with inspiration and trust.” Close the space by giving thanks. Tomorrow use the eggs in a fresh salad, and as you enjoy, feel your spirit being renewed and nourished.
