New Moon Sound Journey
The NEW MOON represents the beginning of our 28 days lunar month.
During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see. As a result, we cannot see the moon as the side that faces the Earth is not illuminated.
The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle. In the darkness, the fertile ground, you plant the seeds of your heartfelt desires on the New Moon, consciously focusing your Mind/Body/Spirit on the ‘feeling’ of your desires.
The new moon offers the opportunity to empty and quiet, to listen, to be inspired, the following two weeks allows you to build upon that inspiration until it manifests as a creative endeavour or event.
These 28 days cycle of expansion and contraction has a huge effect on our mental/emotional patterns and energy levels. It can dictate when the time is right to nourish and retreat, or to expand and share.
New Moons are special, as a time to unfold into your real self, the timeless one. If it’s true that we rest between lives, in our real home, the New Moon is a time to rest, before the next cycle of happenings.
Part of preparing is making sure you are clear about your intentions. Sometimes it’s a quality you’d like to cultivate like forgiveness, courage — other times it’s a more specific request for a promotion at work or a new place to live.
This Cancer New Moon is a sensitive one and brings a mix of energy. On one hand, this New Moon will bring a fresh new lunar cycle, helping to create some distance from the recent Eclipse energies.
Things should feel lighter and we may feel inspired to set some new goals or to think about how we want to wrap up the second half of the year.
