"I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past" Thomas Jefferson
Every month, the moon completes and commences a new cycle. Every month we are blessed with new energy and the opportunity to review what's been, start things afresh and create new goals.
So what is a NEW MOON?
When the moon is new, we can't see it. At this time the moon rises and sets with the sun. Positioned between earth and the sun, Its lighted half is facing entirely away from Earth, and its night face is facing us. As a new moon is so close to the sun’s glare it's almost impossible to see it with the naked eye. It’s only as the moon moves in orbit, as its lighted hemisphere begins to come into view from Earth, that we can see it in our sky. This diagram below shows the phases of the moon if you're more visual like me!
Tonight the new moon will be exact at 11.18pm Sydney time.
The new moon tonight is in the zodiac sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius represents ideas, the bigger picture and expansion. So the energy of this new moon tonight is really supportive of creating a vision of how you'd like your future to look. Even if you're not clear on the details (remember it's about the BIG PICTURE), it's a great time to sit down and journal the sorts of things you'd like to have more of in your life over the coming year.
December is always full of madness preparing for Christmas so why don't you gift yourself 30 mins of noting your dreams around what you'd like to bring in next year. The energy will be here for the next 2 days so grab a coffee and say no to that task that really can wait an extra day.
HAPPY NEW MOON.
