i’m excited for this new moon.
not only is it a new moon, a time for cleansings and welcoming in new beginnings, it’s also a dark moon, or, the second new moon in a single calendar month and a time of hightened energy and a great time to work on or dedicate yourself to personal growth.
i have been doing a lot of personal growth this year.
from multiple health issues (thyroid, migraine, general health), after having never really been an unhealthy person, to some financial woes, i’ve gone through a huge bout of soul searching and re-evaluation these last seven months.
it’s been a rollcoaster and i don’t know that i’ve fully come to a stop yet, but during this ebb, i’m planning on taking the time to reflect on all the good and bad of whatever cycle i was in the throes of.
i read once that the dark moon is the savasana of the moon cycle, and i find that super fitting, if not a little ironic, all things considered.
like savasana in yoga, the dark moon is a great time for reflection and absorbtion of all the lessons and teachings, though you may not know what those things are, or are aware that you even learned them.
i feel like that’s on purpose, as we are never completely done changing or shifting, much like the moon itself.
so, tomorrow night, i plan on sitting quietly, with my altar and myself, and just… digest.
will you join me?
