August’s celebration of the New Moon is both familiar and unique. As with each New Moon we are invited to call in what we most want to see made manifest in our lives. New Moons are opportunities for new beginnings and creativity. Leo’s New Moon even more so as self-expression and creativity are prime aspects this August. We are reminded that:
“Creativity – like human life itself – begins in darkness.”
– Julia Cameron
And that the cloak of darkness offered by the New Moon can be a time of great transparency which leads to healing.
Mystic Mamma contributor, Pat Lilies, talks about this period of Mercury retrograde being a time of deep rage being released. Many have experienced the collateral damage of such energies. Many of us have had to seek ways to take the higher road in the face of those thrusting nefarious intentions our way. We have had to navigate around miscommunications, misunderstandings, and strive to create realignments of unity often in vain as the reconciliation of such is sometimes impossible in immediate ways when those caught up Ego’s propelling force block paths to peace.
But this does not mean we cannot generate our own inner-peace. We are encouraged to stay close to our hearts, listen to our soul’s callings and compassionately stand in our convictions to embrace positive outcomes. In doing so, platforms for justice and beneficial energetic transitions can be created. Chad Woodward encourages us that August is a time when we can,
“Revitalize and begin a process of recovering purpose, strength, presence…”
As you create your intentions this New Moon, consider your deepest desires. Release any hold others have on your peace of mind, and your ability to achieve success. Know that this could be a time of upheaval and that to make room for the new, the old must be cleared. Be prepared to let go before things are taken from you. And observe the malfeasance first before you respond. As spoken by mystic Jason Estes:
“Welcome to August, this is the month where it all begins so much shifting and changing and growing pains will occur this month massive purges on ideals, structures and very huge emotional turmoil will come to the surface, all of that which you are about to step into is stuff that has been here, none of it will be new understand while it will look like we are going backwards these events and feelings and emotions are coming up for the final time on the earth so sit with them do not react to them just simply listen feel into them and then respond in a way that doesn’t hurt anyone.”
And, in Jason’s his Eleven Secrets, he reminds us:
“Secret 3: Gratitude makes room for more.”
May you enjoy the blessings of multiplying gratitude this New Moon.
Focus on that. Yes, focus on gratitude. Focus on love.
Know that when you face that which your heart-of-love cannot comprehend, you can transmute it to reach a higher purpose. Moment by moment. Love is much stronger than hate.
