Were you able to embrace and enjoy the supermoon on the 14th? I missed it, however I felt it’s illuminating energy within me. Illuminating my progress since the new moon. Illuminating all that I have released. Illuminating my lunar journey of 2022. Since the first new moon circle in January, I have become more aware of the energies around me. I have been encouraged to acknowledge, to embrace, and to practice nonjudgement. I have been encouraged to be open to mindful curiosity. To see myself as the moon…whole: illuminated and dark. June marks the middle of the year, providing an opportune time to look at what you have accomplished over the past 6 months. Revisit goals you made. Perhaps you have been guided to make alterations. Reflect on the highs and lows. Are you embracing the flow of the lunar energies? Is there anything you are holding back? Perhaps feeling hesitant to aim high? Are you feeling a lull in your growth, your path obscure now? Perhaps you felt as if you were on the fast track to manifesting your intentions, only for everything to come to a screeching halt, leaving you a little confused and uncertain in the direction you are going. If you resonate with this, it is ok not to always know the next step. The time of uncertainty is a signal to step away from external influences. It is an invitation to look inward, to reconnect with your intuition, your own creativity. When there is acceptance without judgement of lulls and/or setbacks, a space is created for new energies to appear. Sagittarius brings in an adventurous energy. Encouraging a sense of wonderment and joy. A reminder that life is an adventure, full of ups and downs. Amidst this adventure it is important to play and to seek out the good in each moment. Take a moment to offer up a heartfelt gratitude for your whole self! Celebrate and smile at the progress you have made. Taking note of each step along the way. Remembering that the challenges of the day are only temporary. The uncertainty you may experience is only a distraction. Look inward, listen to your intuition. The inner voice of wisdom that was with you when you entered the world and is with you today and always. Where will your inner wisdom lead you today?

Gemini brings a lot of different energies to the new moon phase. Our mind may be going one way and our heart another. Communication is very important during this time to help us not only stay focused and grounded but also to encourage curiosity. Often when we think of communication it is in our relationship to others. Perhaps the focus should be on our inner communication between heart and mind. Take a moment and think about all the dialogue that takes place within your mind on how you are going to approach someone about a certain subject. All the dialogue in your mind about how that person may feel about what you say, how you may feel after the words are spoken. Feel the ego-based emotions that are connected to these thoughts. Feel your energy! How does this feel in your heart, your gut? Is there conflict or harmony? Be curious! Explore the why! Perhaps you can take a moment and close your eyes. Take 3 slow deep breaths and think of a time when you were confident that you had made a right decision. You felt support all around you. Try to remember your inner energy. How did your heart feel? How did your mind engage with others when you shared your intention? Did the words flow easily, was your body language light and welcoming? Was your enthusiasm contagious? Did you have an inner knowing that heart and mind were aligned? This alignment can happen automatically. At other times the external chatter of your mind may have a stronger hold depending on the energy it carries. Perhaps you can take another moment, close your eyes, breath 3 slow deep breaths. Be curious about the topics that are taking up space within your mind. Is there a sense of a loving energy around them? Are they anchored in the heart? Is there a sense of anxiety or self-doubt? Are they seeping in from the external chatter around you? Perhaps the journey we are on is not a journey of finding oneself or purpose, perhaps its a journey to embrace the natural gifts within our hearts. I encourage you to take one more moment, close your eyes, & take 3 slow deep breaths… Ask yourself: What are my natural gifts? What is it that I am lovingly passionate about? Now ask yourself: What is the external chatter that often hold me back? When ready, set the following intention in writing: I will be curious and encourage communication between heart and mind, feeling the supportive energies around me. I will embrace my natural gifts, ignoring the external chatter of the mind.

Once again, we rest under the waxing gibbous moon. The spring sky welcomes back the ancient constellations of Hydra -The Sea Serpent, Ursa Major-The Great Bear, Leo-The Lion & several others. The sky is a reminder of our pure potentiality. We are a beautiful being of light, shining infinitely. Setting intentions is a natural process. It is practiced in many different areas of our lives: career, family and relationships, to name a few. Some intentions are created automatically, based on expectations of others; Some are related to culture and still others can be based on habits. These intentions will grow, wither, twist and turn. When we bring awareness of something greater than ourselves into the intention planning, we begin to gain a new perspective about our purpose. This Saturday, April 16th we will welcome the quiet light of the full moon. Set aside time to reflect. In what ways have you become more aware of the deepness of your intentions? Have you been able see things with a different perspective? Are you being inspired by the natural rebirth of nature as we grow into spring? This is a time to nurture all that is supporting you. If you feel in limbo about anything, add a little extra care to see if a change in perspective is needed. How is ego affecting perspective? You are co-creator of your life; you have the ability to make positive changes. “Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the world.” - Rumi

"If you restore balance in your own self, you will be contributing immensely to the healing of the world." Deepak Chopra As we take in the energies of the new moon, reflect on the flow of the intentions you have created so far. In January you created your vision & prayer for 2022, what you will build, feel & be open to. The world is a different place today. How have these intentions help you stay focus on your purpose? February, New Moon in Aquarius, encouraged you to open yourself to new perceptions with gratitude and spaciousness. Are you seeing with your new perception? In March you were guided to recognize and offer your unique qualities and gifts in a devotion to something greater than yourself. How are you using your gifts to create balance for yourself and the higher consciousness? This past week, you reconnected with the joy and love of your inner child and offered that love to the world. Are you taking a few minutes each day, hands to heart, and feeling the energy of this love with each breath? A beautiful exchange of giving and receiving? It is natural to get caught up in everything going on around you. Family, work. friends, nationally and internationally. Taking the time to reflect on the intentions you have created will bring purpose and balance in yourself. Your heart light shining, connecting with the universal web of healing light. Peace & Clarity Nancy

As we approach the new moon this Friday, take pause tonight and gaze upon the waxing gibbous moon. This is a time of completion. As we strive to complete our intentions, the natural energy and wisdom of nature will carry the moon to it's fullness. We should trust our inner wisdom and reflect on our intentions. What did we create and nurture to fullness? What are we struggling to complete? What needs to be redirected or perhaps let go? The waxing gibbous moon invites us to be mindful in our actions. Are they contributing to a higher consciousness? Do these actions create a sense of well being within? This is a good time to take a look at one's self, to refine and prepare for the next lunar phase. During the next few days, allow yourself to feel the natural pull of your life. Gently guiding you, allowing you to bring your intentions to completion without being forced. Allowing what needs to fall away to do so. Sending peace and clarity.

As winter transitions to spring, the air is filled with uncertainty. This year that uncertainty is more than just weather related. With all that is going on around us, it is easy to stand still and absorb the negativity, react with anger & disbelief, to feel helpless and discouraged. It is hard to move forward when we forget or lay to the wayside our intentions. This past new moon circle, we took time to observe the external world around us and to remember our authentic self. The we took time to reflect inward, to remember our connection and created a devotion to something higher than ourselves. The moon moves into the waxing crescent phase, growing brighter each day till it is full again. It brings the energy of positivity & faith. Encourages us to keep growing, keep moving. The positive energy of our devotion will become intwined with the positive energy of the collected consciousness. "Every moment we spend in higher consciousness helps uplift the consciousness of the whole world." Holding space today for peace, love & compassion

As the moon moves closer to the end of this cycle, take time to check in with yourself. How are you feeling about the intentions/goals created at the beginning of this cycle? Step back and sense how they are unfolding. Feel gratitude for the progress that has been made. Practice patience for what has yet to unfold. Take time in the quietness of your mind, asking for discernment and guidance in anything that may need to be changed. Feel in your heart center, self-love and compassion as you begin to let go of all that no longer serves you. Feel the strength of your 3rd Chakra Manipura- your energy center for self-will and empowerment as you release habits that do not sustain you physically, mentally and energetically. As the dark side of the moon emerges, take comfort in knowing, this is the time to look inward and prepare for the next cycle. Peace & Clarity Nancy

"Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality."- Earl Nightingale As the moon begins to wax, reflect on the intentions you may have set under the new moon. Are they starting to take root or still waiting to be gently pushed into creation? Are they claiming their space or competing with other ideas? Is weeding necessary to provide proper nourishment for growth? Now is the time to clarify the outcome you desire. What is the overall goal? Is it aligned with kindness? Is it mindful?

"Your thoughts are a veil on the face of the Moon. That Moon is your heart, and those thoughts cover your heart. So let them go, just let them fall into the water.” Rumi As the moon slowly dims, reflect on the seeds planted at the beginning of the moon cycle. Offer gratitude for what was illuminated and fulfilled. Let go of what did not bear fruit. How do you feel about the intentions you have set? Were you attached to a different outcome? Are you taking time to breathe in what was manifested? What do you need to let go of? What may you need to nourish a little differently? Take time this week as we prepare to meet under the New Moon. "But even when the moon looks like it's waning...it's actually never changing shape." -Ai Yazawa, Nana. Vol 14

This Monday will be January's full moon. As the moon illuminates the sky, take time and breathe it in. Honor the Full Moon with open arms, dance and bathe in its light. Harness this energy with clear seeing. How are you feeling about the intentions planted during the New Moon? What is lighting up the dark? What remains hidden? A new perspective supports a time of letting go & releasing all that no longer serves you. What Full Moon rituals do you have?

Waxing Gibbous Moon This moon phase signifies refinement. ‘Waxing’ means the Moon’s illumination is growing and ‘Gibbous’ means more than half of the Moon is illuminated. During the past week, as the moon continue to reflect the light, your intentions set during Circle, should be taking shape. As we reach this next phase, set aside some time to be with your vision. How is it unfolding? How is it feeling? Are you attached to your original thought of action? Were you presented with a new perspective?
