The New Moon rises tomorrow, on the 20th of September, just shy of the Autumn Equinox.
But before it does, it performs an occultation of three planets; Venus (last night), Mars, and Mercury (tonight).
When the moon passes in front of and shadows each of these planets, it intensifies their energy and properties, which you may feel deep in your own energy centers – chakras – each of us according to the work which needs doing at this moment in time.
Pay close attention to what comes up for you in the next few days. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the intensity of your emotions, or situations that crop up, remember that this is a phase, and will pass, but that staying open to the wisdom that each day presents is always your best option.
You don’t have to figure anything out in the next few days, just allow yourself to be.
The corresponding energy to the planets are –
Venus – Love
Mars – Action, Passion
Mercury – Communication
The Equinox brings our turning into darkness, as the days shorten and we become more introspective, diving deep into dreams, visions and the Underworld. It is appropriate to seek counsel from ancestors and spirit guides over the next week, with the intention of releasing old wounds and growing into a new, more expanded skin.
Namaste, my loves. So Mote it Be.
