This past Sunday was the new moon and was the planned day for this post. Sunday was the day that Hurricane Irene hit us here and I have been without power ever since. Now that I am finally back on the grid, I can resume my blogging schedule.
Speaking of hurricane Irene and the New Moon, the phase of the moon was one reason why Irene had instilled fear in the people on the East Coast. The tides are affected by the moon and the New Moon brings a stronger tide then other days in the moon cycle. The day that Irene was supposed to hit land was also the day of the New Moon so that was an added threat to the level of damage that was possible.
Every time there is a New Moon it brings special energy to the earth. In many different teachings, the power of the moon is recognized. It is discussed in certain types of yoga like Naam Yoga, also in gardening and in herbal medicine. Plants thrive better when planted according to the moon and herbal tinctures are more potent when started on the day of the New Moon.
This theory about the New Moon applies to all areas of life. The day of the New Moon and the two weeks that follow which is the waxing moon phase is the perfect time to start new projects. Things that you begin during this period have a better chance at thriving and will have better results than if you started them during the waning moon period. If you are planning something new in your life like a new business venture, getting married, or planting a seed try to coordinate your efforts with the moon and things will come easier to you. Living in sync with the moon and nature is always a beneficial choice. Why fight nature? Use the power of nature and the moon to accelerate all things in your life.
In the same line of thinking, if you want to get rid of something in your life it’s best to do that during a waning moon period. If you are trying to eliminate something from your diet or are getting a mercury filling removed it’s a good idea to do that during this moon phase. The energy of the moon when it is waning works well with eliminating non-productive things in your life.
I hope this information helps you to live life with ease and have things come and go easier than before. If you have experiences with this topic I would love for you to share it with me and the rest of the readers in the comment section.
