My Moon Musings…

The last Aries New Moon came to help you to know who you are and what you are worthy and deserving of so that you are ready to receive. Then came the Libra Full Moon to help you to surrender and release all that is in the way of you remembering who you are anything that gets in the way of you feeling worthy and deserving and knowing your true soul self. Now here is the first eclipse season of 2022, to help you to lay new foundations for you and your future.

As you may feel there is a lot going on at this new moon solar eclipse. The eclipse energies started with the first new moon of April, the Aries new moon on the 1st of the month. But we really started to get a feeling for what this eclipse season would bring with the Jupiter Neptune conjunction on the 12th and especially when the sun moved into Taurus on the 20th of April.

Since then, the energies have been building and the waning moon has been showing us what needs to be released before we begin this powerful new beginning.

A solar eclipse happens on a new moon when the moon aligns exactly between the earth and the sun blocking out the suns light.

As this would suggest an eclipse can bring with it a sense of darkness and coming face to face with your shadows and we may feel this much more strongly as we wane down through the dark moon energies in the run up to this new moon.

You will be taken into parts of yourself that you try to hide or run from, the emotions you prefer not to face or deal with, the secret yearnings you carry, the hurts, wounds, fears, and rejection that you haven’t yet processed and healed.

This can feel quite a challenge and as we build to the eclipse you may find your emotions eclipsing along with it.

If you’ve been feeling super emotional, irrational, sad, fearful, or ruminating over the past these are all the effects of the eclipse. You may also feel exhausted and lethargic yet filled with an anxious/nervous energy, like you’ve had a bit too much caffeine!

During a solar eclipse you can sometimes be confronted with a sense of “who am I’ and a jarring realisation of where and how you have lost yourself. This will be especially true as a Taurus moon often brings a reality check to show you where you are in your life combined with this eclipse energy, which is showing you where you have strayed from your path of destiny.

But one thing this new moon is here to do is to help you to see that it’s perhaps in loosing yourself that you’ve actually found yourself.

Although eclipses can feel deep and intense, they also bring a little pause, a momentary stillness when everything aligns - and this brings huge potential for wiping the slate clean and starting again. Get still during the dark moon and eclipse and spend some time alone in the “darkness” - allow it to reveal answers to you and then use these insights to move forwards. 

And moving forwards and new beginnings is what this new moon wants from you. As each of our lunar nodes is activated during this eclipse you are going to be called towards where your future growth lies. 

It’s now time to make choices and decisions about your future. No longer can you say you “don’t know what to do or what you want” – very often when we say this, we do know…we just don’t want to face the reality and the decision. Remember that doing nothing is also a choice. One that will inevitably keep you stuck where you are.

You’ll know what you’re done with, you’ll know what you’re ready for, you’ll know what you want.

It’s time to love, respect, trust and believe in yourself and move forwards with a newfound sense of self-knowing and self-worth, knowing that you deserve it all. It’s your time to receive, it’s your time to shine, it’s your time to get what you want.

Under this new moon set your deepest intentions from your heart and soul and watch the magic unfold as you begin to build the life that you desire and deserve.
