|New Moon by Maxfield Parrish|
It's moon circle time again! On the Artful Life we meet at each New and Full Moon to share inspiration and intentions, and to align our energies with the lunar cycles.
About the Artful Life Moon Circle:
Anyone is welcome to join the Moon Circle! If this is your first Moon Circle, read this post to find out what it's all about. You can also click here for a printable (and pretty) guide to the moon phases, from me to you. If you'd like to read all the Artful Life Moon Circles, click here.
This month's New Moon was also an eclipse. Eclipses create a special energy, and a special opportunity to integrate the conscious (sun) with the unconscious (moon) or the life-force and intellect (sun) with the spirit and emotions (moon.) What does this mean for setting your New Moon intentions? It means this is a great time to work with old ingrained unconscious habit patterns and really get some movement.
What do you need to bring out into the light?
What unhealthy habit is ready to leave your life?
I know this can be scary stuff. But I can encourage you to take this opportunity to begin, compassionately, to dislodge the grip of that addiction, or notice those little acts of self-sabotage, or start to loosen your ties to that not so nurturing relationship. You know what you need to do. With gentle, loving care, and without self-condemnation, you can do it!
If it helps, you can share your intention, or even your desire to have an intention, here in the comments. Putting it out into the world builds positive momentum.
