Early risers may send out important requests and correspondence beforehand, but then the moon is void of course/voc* at 5:10 a.m. ET for ALL DAY!
This is also the Dark of Moon time, Hecate’s Time, a.k.a the Balsamic Moon. Reflection is emphasized at the Dark of Moon. Use this time to seed courage and the vision in your heart.
Each individual has more power then s/he thinks to fashion the future. It starts with the present moment. Feel empowered. Taste the promise. Make time to meditate and contemplate. Carve out your goals.
At the dark of moon, call on the wise, loving energy of Hecate, one of the oldest goddesses. Picture a grandmother who “has your back”. Know that you always have the time you need to do what must happen in this lifetime, if you allow it. Hecate is one of the goddesses who has been made a bit scary and cartoon-like due to the fear of what she can inspire. You can claim her power back to you energetically by developing a comfort with decomposition, regeneration and the mysteries of the birth process.
The goddess Hecate is beyond linear time; she is the spiritual midwife for birth and death and everything in between and beyond. She is not confined to the boundaries of hours, minutes and days. She confronts the infinite; always was, always will be. Allow yourself to enter into this sense of knowing. Sense the limitless potential while on the on the threshold of this New Moon. The essence is to view and witness areas to release and recycle.
Observe your own personal ritual, whether it’s your breakfast, a meditation, journaling, the route you take to work or a morning walk. What offers you continuity and an anchor? The chaos of the greater world temporarily subsides when you create a ritual that gives order. A ritual, no matter how simple, helps you recognize your ability to create a very different world.
What is your ritual for the day? For my deeper musings about the Dark of Moon- here’s the older post…
*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Taurus, relaxation is demanded. You can try to accomplish a big task, but that couch looks awfully inviting. Give in and let yourself enjoy a leisurely lunch and your productivity will increase afterwards. Financial matters may want consideration, but chew over them carefully rather than bite down conclusively on any one offering.
