The New Moon arrives today and is in the house of Aquarius. Once again we are going to experience a super moon and as a special added bonus, drum roll please, this new moon is also known as a black moon!
Usually, there are only three new moons in one season, the period of time between a solstice and an equinox – or vice versa. However, there are four new moons in between the December 2014 solstice and the March 2015 equinox. Some people call the third of these four new moons as a seasonal Black Moon. Not much information is around on the significance of a “black moon” but I felt it should be mentioned.
The super moons strengthen our impact for change. Given that this New Moon is also a black moon, it enhances the tendency to turn inward. “BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD” is what is coming to me. This is the year to empower yourself, your intentions that you set right now should reflect this. On the 19th we enter the Chinese New Year of the sheep, a gentle year is promised with this yin energy. We collectively are being given the opportunity for personal greatness this year, and I think we should all jump on the proverbial band wagon and get er done!
Celebrate this New Moon with some me time. Whatever allows you to feel pampered and special set aside some time to indulge yourself today. It can be as simple as booking a massage to as elaborate as a mini vacation. No matter what you decide to indulge in, allow yourself to quietly meditate on where you would like to go this year, what area would you like personal growth in? Write them down in your journal. Do not try to figure out how you are going to achieve them, just allow them to brew and lead you in the direction you need to go. Be ready, in this way you will be able to embrace the new potentials emerging in your life as they happen. Welcome to a wonderful year of amazing! Celebrate you on this beautiful New Moon day.
Always thinking, always observing, always wondering and pondering the things that make life go round.
