New Moon Phase: set a wish or intention
Ruling Mahavidya: Bhairavi
There comes a point when we realize that we must make the best of what’s around. We are at this point. But it serves a greater purpose. In order to receive the full benefit of Shodashi’s work next month to bring our highest desire, we must find gratitude for what we already have – even if what we have feels bleak or bare.
It’s not about the value of what you have or do not have; it’s about being able to shift from a mindset of dissatisfaction to a mindset of satisfaction. It’s a skill that we need to hone in order to maintain strong mental and physical health. It is very, very difficult to do at this time in history. It is achieved, however, in conjunction with nature. We easily flip into the mindset of satisfaction when we connect with the wonders of nature. Can you imagine the minds that created the templates for all living things on our planet? When we think like this we are humbled.
Today’s specific energy pushes a feeling of exposure, vulnerability, and trepidation. It’s hard to see who to trust today, so avoid significant disclosures to people who are not among your inner circle. We have a stronger need to find and connect with others of like mind and heart, but it is too difficult to judge this today. Take good care of yourself by being a good steward for yourself even if you have to envision yourself as someone else standing up for you. (That was a confusing sentence. I hope you get my drift.)
Tonight, before going to bed, it is a good idea to give yourself some type of command to remember your dreams. Information in dreams foreshadows events that begin with the New Moon in Virgo on September 5 and reach apex at the Harvest Full Moon of September 18/19, 2013.
