This New Moon is asking us to embrace our shadow self. It is the parts of us that many wish to discard and be rid of. But this part of us holds a lot of power. It depends on how you view it and how you use it. Reject it and you will suffer greatly. Resist it and it will persist. Acknowledge and accept it, and you will evolve exponentially.
We want to be of service to others, want to help and lead them down a path of love and healing. As these gifts are developing we must be mindful of our position. By offering unsolicited advice we are likely unintentionally hurting the person, rather than serving them.
Retrogrades happen quite often throughout the year. Usually people experience their fair share of frustrations during retrogrades, flexing their involuntary control issues. However, these periods are actually quite beneficial if approached properly. So, what if you were born under a retrograde?
We honor this time of year for the blessings of Mother Earth. The ancients, such as the Celts, Norse, and Druids held celebrations to honor the Sun god’s power to nurture and fertilize the soil. The fertile Goddess germinates the seeds in her womb and births new life into the world.
