New Moon

Want to Know the Energies You Can Expect from This New Moon?

A Special Message About Manifestation Grid From Reverend Pauline Southard

New Moon of September 20, 2017 arrives on the east coast of the USA and ushers in the shift of energy that accompanies the change in seasons as fall arrives on September 22, 2017. Since this New Moon occurs at the end of Virgo, we are given the opportunity to revisit the lessons we have been presented with since the Sun entered Virgo last month. At its best pure Virgo energy is precise, effective and efficient. Virgo energy can inspires us to eat in a more healthy way, exercise and organize our lives! Used negatively, this energy can be pessimistic, critical and self-loathing.

As with most of the New Moon charts this year, the energy is neither pure nor simple. There is both a minor Grand Trine in the element of Earth and a T square. We simultaneously feel called to take action in three different directions as we yearn for some time to sit in a forest and meditate preferably with a partner! Definitely a recipe for discontent!

Expect to see headlines about the issues caused by the government’s inability to communicate effectively, large scale computer hacking and the cult of personality vs. the rule of law and order. In our lives, it would be helpful to avoid misunderstandings with our siblings. Perhaps a family hike could be a fun filled experience.

Meditating with the intention to access the wisdom of Mother Earth will be fruitful now. Many of Long Island’s beautiful arboretums would be perfect for this practice. Fortifying our bodies with nourishing foods and water is key to helping our bodies adjust to the change in temperature and energy happening now. Garlic in all its many forms is so helpful right now.

A new tarot deck that is based on Mother Earth would be a wonderful companion for this earthy Virgo New Moon. Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan is both beautiful and profound, positive and inspiring. I am falling in love with this deck. The readings I’ve done with it are spot on! I was SO happy to see it here at A Time for Karma. Check it out!  

I will be burning Essential Essences’ Mystic Forest Incense to more fully connect with the earth element. This probably the incense that I burn the most. Its ability to help me to stay grounded and centered is invaluable.

Our Manifestation Grid has now been charged with Reiki and other powerful healing energies. I’ve selected two new crystals to add to the grid this lunation which will help us to connect with the energy of this New Moon.

The charming Blue Aragonite is perfect for this lunation as it will help us to stay calm and quiet our minds. It provides insight into the causes of problems and situations. Aragonite is attuned to the Earth Goddess, another way to connect with the prevalent Earth energy this month.

 The strong Desert Rose a type of gypsum and selenite, which combines the energy of earth and air to help us to not get stuck in old patterns of being and doing while helping us to earth the visions we do receive.

If you wish to discover specifically how this New Moon will affect you (ESPECIALLY this potent lunation) as well as what your natal birth chart’s potential is and how best to work with it, please feel free to connect with me at karmickat@aol.com

If you need help with finding the emotional strength to move forward, please write your intention on the slip of paper and visualize the result you wish to manifest, feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!

May all your dreams that serve your highest good become the reality you live! Rev.

Last Month's New Moon Message

The New Moon of August 21, 2017 is the last chapter of this year’s Leo story. A story filled with sound and fury. It is up to us to determine if it ultimately signifies nothing or if it becomes for us a true turning point in our lives. As I wrote last month, the New Moon of July 23, 2017, the Full Moon of August 7, 2017 and the next New Moon of August 21, 2017 will all occur in the sign of Leo and will tell a story about power both at the personal and global level. The headlines from the last month have given us many examples of this energy both positive and negative. Usually, we see each phase of the Moon occur in a different sign over the course of the year.

We are exploring various aspects of Leo the Lion’s energy for better and for worse! Leo archetypes include the Lion as well as the King and Queen. The sign of Leo at its best is all about life and life force as well as creativity, the ability to discover who we are and act on it, power, the warmth of love and affection, fun, joy and the innocence of children. When Leo energy is misused, it manifests as selfishness and self-centeredness, impatience, egotism, possessiveness and arrogance.

To further complicate things, the Full Moon of August 7 featured a lunar eclipse and the New Moon on August 21 will give us a very potent solar eclipse which will be visible through a large swath of the USA. I will use eclipse and New Moon interchangeably this month to mean the same thing because this August New Moon is a solar eclipse. Eclipses typically happen twice a year. They present themselves in pairs with a solar and lunar eclipse in each pair of eclipses. Eclipse energy tends to be very intense. While lunar eclipses typically bring up strong emotional reactions, solar eclipses cause dramatic events, both in our personal lives and globally. So buckle up your seatbelt, it’s bound to be a bumpy ride! We begin to feel the energy of eclipses several weeks before the actual eclipse date and its effects continue gradually growing weaker for several weeks after.

To further fan the flames, Mercury is retrograde at the time of the eclipse and will not go direct until Sept 5, 2017. During Mercury retrograde periods, it is common to experience computer issues, communication challenges and of all things, travel snafus. I would encourage you to back up your computer, don’t assume that your partner understood what you were saying and carefully check all your summer travel plans. Perhaps trip insurance would be helpful as well! Since Mercury is quite close to the Sun at the time of the eclipse albeit in the sign of Virgo, expect a Mercury retrograde period on steroids as well.
Despite all this drama, please be aware that there is potential here for major soul growth and evolution, although it may feel that it’s difficult to see in the moment. The Sabian symbols, the famous divination oracle that combines astrology and clairvoyance, tell a story that demonstrates most clearly the positive potential that these energies can stir within us. The lovely symbol for the eclipse is a Mermaid. The theme is doing what comes naturally. When this energy is used well it encourages creativity, intuition and emotion. When this energy is used unwisely, it is crude and offensive. It is up to us to choose wisely.

To add to the stew, a grand cardinal cross has formed in the sky highlighting love relationships, physical intimacy, power, control and unexpected change. These are a continuation of the energy which began at the last New Moon. We feel pulled in four directions as regards to these issues.  

The chart for this New Moon/ Solar Eclipse is VERY complex as you can see which is why this column is so much longer and more detailed than usual. You can expect to see situations in the world and in your life that will be the manifestation of these energies. As a spiritual counselor at A Time For Karma, I have been seeing that since the last New Moon of July 23, 2017 there has been a very dramatic increase in both the number of people who have been coming to see me and the intensity of their life circumstances.

Despite all this drama, please be aware that there is potential here for major soul growth and evolution, although it may feel that it’s difficult to see in the moment.

The lovely symbol for the eclipse is a Mermaid. The theme is doing what comes naturally. When this energy is used well it encourages creativity, intuition and emotion. Now we have the opportunity to give and receive unconditional love, both with our family and friends but also with those we have no intimate connection with. When this energy is used unwisely, it is crude and offensive. It is up to us to choose wisely.

Nothing but the best will work for this complex lunation! So I will be burning Fred Soll’s THE king of incense’s “Joyous Rose” Incense. Rose has the highest vibration of all the flowers. It will help us to keep our hearts open and to stay positive.

Our Manifestation Grid has now been charged with Reiki and other powerful healing energies. I’ve selected one new crystal to add to the grid this lunation which will help us to connect with the energy of this New Moon.

I am keeping the Infinite crystal in the grid because of its ability to act as a master healer. It will also help us to evolve our sense of self control and to inspire change. I was really excited to see the beautiful crystals that are available at Karma now as they are really hard to find.
The lovely Blue Lace Agate crystal will encourage us to stay calm and cool. It will help us to communicate more effectively, allowing us to better express what is in our hearts. This is especially helpful during this Mercury retrograde period.

If you wish to discover specifically how this New Moon will affect you (ESPECIALLY this potent lunation) as well as what your natal birth chart’s potential is and how best to work with it, please feel free to connect with me at karmickat@aol.com.
