It’s quite unusual to have two New Moons in January. This New Moon feels quite magical for me. And if your intentions for the year are already slipping away, somehow, then your re-commitment is supported now.
Press the ‘try again’ button on your new year’s intention, this January-New-Moon-mark-two.
This date also marks the end of this Venus retrograde, so be sure to tie up any loose ends with respect to love and business now.
If you work with moon phases and moon signs, then you know that the New Moon is the perfect time to set an intention. To add more depth, the sign in which each New Moon falls can help guide your intention-setting.
This New Moon falls in Aquarius.
Aquarian energy lends itself to abstraction, amongst other things.
Which leads me to consider the concept of intention more closely.
I’ve been mulling over the depth of intention a lot lately, inspired by posts like this one, by my mystical healer friend, Jen Blackstock.
Jen writes of intention as medicine.
As in, the very act of setting an intention as instrumental in healing a wound. I love this.
Intention is relevant at the New Moon stage (it’s not the only relevant principle to follow in the Spencer Method: I’ll write more about how to come into balance with intention-setting later).
Here, let’s talk about intention, and how you can work with intention to heal.
Tune into your feelings at this New Moon.
(the moon is representative of feelings)
Connecting with your feelings is absolutely fundamental to successful manifestation.
Feel what you desire this New Moon, and consider what may be underlying this desire.
For example, if you are currently feeling drawn to make some sort of bigger contribution:
It may be useful to know that Aqua energy is about groups
Is what you actually want to find a way to make a difference in the context of the group: your company, your family, your country, your tribe?
There are times for the spotlight, and times to enjoy the thrill of a solo performance. But:
Aqua energy relates to the concept of synergism
that is, that the group can effect something even greater than can be contributed by the individual people who make up that group.
Here, the medicine for your soul may be to play your role in contributing to the creation of something bigger than yourself.
Aqua energy is also progressive and forward-thinking: how will you harness the energy of this lunar cycle?
I’m interested. Tell me in the comments: what is your intention for this Aquarian new moon?
(and remember: it doesn’t need to be the same as that which is suggested above: you are the co-creatrix of your own destiny!)
