Missing The Moon?
Do you know that sometimes we miss the moon. Of course it is in the sky all the time - yes but sometimes as the crescent moon grows smaller and then achieves the new moon and even after it comes out of that for a few days the amount of moonlight that is shed upon the Earth is often not enough to make up for the loss of that feminine energy.
I know a great many people believe that the idea that the moon casts feminine energy on the planet is just an idea - a myth, a belief but in my experience and according to what I've been taught the moon does cast a light that is feminine in its nature - and in its style of experience it is nurturing and supportive. An energy not entirely like mother but it supports the energy of mother and it supports the energy of fem.
I bring this to your attention because in the absence of much moonlight, towards the new moon and a little bit after the new moon, one might do things that are in essence attempting to compensate for that loss of feminine energy.
This is not at all unusual as a time when people crave sweets for example. It is not unusual for people to crave the company of feminine beings, whether you be a man or a woman or a boy or a girl for that matter. Of course one craves the company of feminine beings at all times of the month but you might crave it more so during that time.
I am not an astrologer nor do I claim to be one. I have almost no knowledge of the subject but I have noticed the affect of the sun on our planet and the moon on our planet and even some of the nearby planets such as Mars and Venus. All of these heavenly bodies do have an effect in their energy on our planet just as our planet, I believe, has an effect on them.
I'm going to give you a suggestion just for fun. This next weekend see if you can notice how the moon effects you. Go out if you can at night and glance at the sky and when you're looking at the moon just start breathing in and out - deep breaths and then relax - 4 or 5 deep breaths is fine and then relax. Then wait a few minutes and do it again.
See how you feel. You might just feel more nurtured, more relaxed, more comfortable with yourself and with your whole self in your body, maybe even safer.
For those of you who might need extra strength or energy and you're tired, go out during the day. Close your eyes so you don't get affected by the sun but look in the sky where the sun is and take deep breaths - 4 or 5. You might just feel a little more invigorated.
If you wish you can wait a few minutes. Again close your eyes and look towards the sun. It doesn't have to be exactly the sun but it has to be close to it so the sunlight is bright, and breathe deeply 4 or 5 times.
It might just give you a little extra strength as I said. It's worth a try. Something fun you can do this coming weekend.
Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
