Welcome to ‘Following the Moon’. I hope that you are fully engaged in the creative flow of this time of year. In the Northern Hemisphere the burgeoning of summer is preparing to meet up with the inevitable wind down of fall. From now until the September Equinox the action time continues. Be engaged and feel the connection with others deepen. Invest in the relationships that you trust to stand with you. Acknowledge all that you love.
The ‘Trust’ Moon cycle began on Thursday, July 19 and will close this Friday, August 17. Each year, on the Natural Calendar we receive these 29.6 days to grow our roots deeper and wider as we ground into the ability to Trust the Art/Life and all that she brings.
Today, Monday, August 13, begins the Balsamic Phase. The 3.5 days of the Balsamic Phase provides time to dream. Each moon/month this period relaxes us into the dream of becoming awake to the next unfolding of our vision. As the New ‘Love’ Moon approaches float back in time to Spring Equinox and remember the idea, passion, enthusiasm and willingness that you felt for the new walk round the natural wheel. During the Trust Moon cycle there is a deepening, a rooting, a feeling of being grounded.
Ask yourself what’s been growing most vigorously since the Equinox of March 20. What in your Art/Life do you trust?
Physical, emotional and intuitive energy is now moving at a flat out, ‘I’m going to allow this to naturally happen’ pace. If that level of unfolding is not happening in your neck o’ the woods, don’t despair…there is, at all times, the polar opposite of resistance creating necessary tension. Simply notice where your thinking and feeling is invested.
The New Moon on Friday, August 17 presents four weeks of empty canvas. During the New Phase, Friday, August 17- through Monday, August 20 visualize and imagine what it is that you Trust and Love. With the arrival of the Crescent Phase late Monday until Friday morning, August 24, nurture the Trust/Love of your Art/Life as you research and learn about this stage of your vision.
Moon by moon the vision that you carry forward provides the next step in the unfolding of your passion that…TA Da… only you can bring into being. Yet, here in the summer quadrant, (the 90 days between the July Solstice point and the September Equinox) ample time remains for us to come together mirroring one another’s strengths and courage.
Share your Trust and Love of the Art/Life and notice the way your confidence increases. Root into creative potency and the harvest becomes more courage, contribution and daring for us all…. thank you.
