PROMPT: New Moon/Super Moon: Energy May 25/26, 2017

  • The New Moon represents the beginning of our 29 day lunar month. During a New Moon, the moon sits roughly between the Earth & Sun. Basically, we are seeing “the dark side of the moon,” (the side we never see) because the Sun is illuminating that side.
  • This New Moon falls under Gemini; bringing about inspiration, new ideas, insights, and visions. Our May 2017 New Moon is also a Super Moon (meaning that the Moon is at 90% closest approach to Earth in a given orbit) where ENERGY runs high, intuition is heightened, and you become more aware/sensitive to the energy of Nature, the environment, and everything around you.

The Significance and Meaning of this New Moon to us:

  • The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’ and how we shine our individual light out into the world. The MOON represents our ‘inner-world,’ our feelings, unconscious beliefs, and our ‘shadow self.’
  • Since the Sun is illuminating the hidden side of the Moon during this New Moon, we could say that our own ‘hidden side’ and inner feelings are also being illuminated. During a New Moon, we are given an opportunity to start again; letting go of energy from the previous cycle and setting our intentions and innermost desires into conscious action.

My Prompt/Challenge for you tonight is to affirm to the Universe your own intentions and goals for this new cycle.

You can approach this prompt anyways you like, but I will be drawing my personal intentions inside a giant circle (representing the New Moon). I encourage everyone to use that template in a way that works best for them. For example, you could write/draw your intentions, affirmations, and goals within a drawn circle however you see fit. What’s most important is that you gain a sense of personal development or discovery; a kind of self-meditative experience.
