As you shed the old skin

allow this new moon to touch you

Remind you

You are light floating in time and space

 Illuminated and buoyant

Creation created

As we turn the soil this season become aware of what has been and what is becoming. Note to Self what needs changing. Let it go. In these fluctuating times and with the world handing out flippant truths it is imperative for you to remain honest with yourself, heart centered and authentic. 

As we move through this next phase of the new moon you will want to harness the power of subtlety. Be intentional. Utilize your intuitive and creative abilities for seeing a situation beyond the surface and feeling into it more deeply. This will ask you to look at aspects of your reality in varying degrees and reassess the relationships that have held you in limbo. 

Release any energies that distract you. Continue on. Focus on cultivating the firmly rooted contracts that keep you tethered to a sense of purpose. 

By the time you realize what needs to happen, you will have naturally journeyed beyond the physical form of this question and into the soul essence of its meaning. You will know your answer clearly and it be easy for you to let the issue go. In its place, and with hindsight, you will be able to see how all along a new course of action has been building for you. 

Remember, as you continue on, to make ample space within your body to receive, stay open and available to inspiration. With heartfelt gratitude any thing is possible. Even the forms of divine guidance will suddenly seem obvious. 

This is a time of understanding what is really going on at a layer deeper than before and through this process recognizing how well you listen to yourself. When the significant reference point of You is clear it becomes effortless to align with the principles that support what you want. As you move through this fluctuating period and shift in perspective remember that any emotional upheaval is there to redirect you back home within yourself. Even if this seems like something you have had to heal in the past, the time is now to make peace with it, let it rest, so that you can move on. Making yourself whole again.

As the foundation of your inner knowing is strengthened and revitalized you will move quickly beyond old, familiar patterns and into a new way of becoming you all over again.

“…with an open palm she began to listen, and when it all started to happen

she said yes.”

. . .

A new leaf has turned. There is no teacher, other than you, for where you are headed. With only an inner compass to guide you, do you now walk the path that has been laid at your feet. 

Your words listen to themselves as the echo resounds through the tunnel of change. You are the scribe that deems the terms and conditions of your heart. A new work is in progress, and on its way.

For this phase of the waxing moon it is important for you to recognize the pacing that has come into play for progress. There is much excitement that comes with the New Year. A new plan with new ideas pulls you forward. And while this is what we have all wanted it is also necessary to honor the phases of you that have come and gone. Blessing each one with a sense of gratitude. 

As you move forward it is wise to consider how to optimize these past experiences into new forms of energy for the next steps ahead. The duty of this time, the substance that holds it all together, is your commitment. Though you may feel vulnerable in the beginning, the position you take within your heart is the crucial ingredient for success. 

Gently remember how you have gotten stuck in the past, how a certain frame of mind set limits to what you thought was possible. Bring a soothing light to those situations/relationships and let them go with forgiveness. The effort you will need now is to shift less optimal patterns for newly identified roles that in the end will benefit you and serve the desired outcome. Supporting you at the level of your highest gifts.

Trust the process. Trust your-Self.

Sometimes when we are still making the transition we can miss the value of nuance. Notice the details that capture your imagination within the phases less familiar (or unknown) to you. Instead of dismissing your courage, move from what is all too familiar towards your own newborn state of curiosity.

When moving into the next forthcoming dimension of ourselves we must be willing, to some degree, to shed the rigidity of our pre-conceived ideas and travel the distance of what we do not (already) know.

In this way we innocently become our own truest ally and most dear companion. Loving ourselves through the missteps while cheering ourselves on as we bravely take the next step into the slightly varied and newly invigorated unknown.
