Today is the day. Today is the day to release fears, dream big and commit to new plans. Why you may ask? Because it is a day of the New Moon.
Have you ever paid attention to the phases of the moon? Have our noticed the energy during a full moon or a new moon? Well, humans can’t really escape the influence of the moon. It is a common belief that the moon phases affects emotions. Whether you PMS more during full moon and go bat shit crazy or not, the moon certainly affects the weather and the environment around us. In fact, the entire Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang is linked to the waxing and waning of the moon and the rise and fall of life- energy in humans. Hindu astrology places great importance on the moon phases as well, saying that people born during a waxing moon live longer. Buddhist practices encourage to mediate and deepen their spiritual practices on full moon as well.
Being that tonight is the New Moon, here are a few ways you can tap in to the new moon:
- Dream massive. Write down a list of goals or things you would like to manifest.
- Make personal changes. What are some new habits you would like to form in order to uplift and upgrade your life?
- Take some time out for self examination in different areas of your life. Are you searching for love or new relationships, a new house, break habits or do you have any spiritual intentions to work towards?
- New moon is a time for introversion. Take the next 48-72 hours to look within for answers and self-development. Once you have your list of goals and desires start working towards your new projects and plans. Work diligently towards them until the next full moon.
