The New Moon is a time to examine hidden issues and to plan for new beginnings. Also called the Dark Moon, it symbolizes hidden knowledge, winter, dormancy, retreat, rest and recuperation.
Many ancient cultures believed that the Dark Moon Goddesses held the keys to life. These goddesses were not to be feared, but embraced. And to understand their teachings was to understand the deepest mysteries of life
On today’s new moon, I picked five goddesses from my Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Guidance Oracle Deck. To me, they all carry appropriate messages for this special time – to tune in, to release, and to plant new seeds.
Quiet Time: “Take some quiet time alone to rest, meditate, and contemplate.”
Receptivity: “Allow yourself to receive. This will increase your intuition, energy, and ability to give to others.”
Purification: “It’s time for a cleansing detoxification of your body and mind.”
Cycles and Rhythms: “Honor the cycles of your body, energy levels and emotions.”
Endings and Beginnings: “The old must be released, so that the new can enter.”
Do any of these goddesses speak to you? What phase of menstrual cycle are you presently in? We would to hear!
