New Black Moon
By Tara Sutphen
The New Black Moon is the second “new moon” of the month. When you ‘can’t’ see the moon in the sky. Since there isn’t a moon, we are to settle inward and rest, dreaming ideas and plans. Resting gives us the time to think.
Every month we have a New Moon in-between the full moon. New moons are the beginning of the lunar cycle. The sun, moon and earth are in a perfect line, earth being in the middle of the sun and the moon, this gives a calm to the earth as the waters are slower and more relaxed during this lulling and the stars are at their brightest.
This Black moon is an enchanting time, closing your eyes and make wishes. It is a time we are like the butterfly and we’ve left the cocoon behind, only to open our eyes and begin enjoying the journey. Creation calls to make changes easily and gracefully. Everything will become brighter, you will start feeling the warm soft days of summer and enjoy each moment. Romance and the laughter of children are on the rise, smiles and waving, enjoying the activity around you.
So often we suppress and repress our inner natures. The invitation awaits for us to acknowledge a life we can live well. We shouldn’t be afraid, whatever has befallen, we can trust to make future right choices. We begin each day with a new sunrise…a new day assures us.
