Christian would love this...
How has the last week been? Were you fired with enthusiasm for your newly-hatched wishes and intentions after the New Moon (NM) only to start feeling a bit lost/nervous/unsure about them during the Waxing Crescent stage (see previous post)? This certainly happened to me. How on earth am I going to make my wishes come true? However, tonight (31st May) I feel more excited than anything else as I look forward to tomorrow's First Quarter Moon, followed 4 days later by the Gibbous Moon. This next week requires some motoring; the ramping up of emotions is to be expected. I'm sure the path I'm supposed to take will open up before me and I just have to jump at every opportunity presented and manoeuvre around obstacles.
First Quarter Moon - 1st June: Now is the time to commit, says Yasmin Bolan, author of Moonolgy (the book I'm using to work out the varying energies of the lunar cycle).
Keywords are: challenges, confidence and commitment.
What you commit to can change at this time. If you're really unsure about your NM goals, then you can let go of them and come up with alternative plans. If you're happy with your intentions for this lunar cycle, then redouble your efforts. There will be obstacles ahead, but they only serve to strengthen your commitment to your dreams. Life is never meant to be easy. It's especially important at this time to re-feel, re-visualise and re-imagine the NM emotions you wish to manifest. Action stations.
Gibbous Moon - 5th June: So, the Moon is bulging. It's time for stamina.
Keywords, according to Tamsin, are tweak, hone and adjust.
It's more than likely you'll think of giving up - you get scared, your ego will try and talk you out of plans. But stay the course, dig deep and notice what life is throwing at you. Learn from your experiences/mistakes; make some changes - even re-write the whole plan. Momentum is the key now and anything which has run out of steam will not carry you through the next phase which is the full-on Full Moon on 9th June.
This week will probably feel like quite a struggle, but it's important to crank up the emotions and intentions. Dream big. See you in a week's time.
