Greetings Readers! Here’s the Celestial Weather news from Rosemary:
Spring forward into the beauty of a new season! Of course, Mother Nature really is the one in charge as we prepare for a first-day-of-Spring snowfall. But the crocuses are starting to pop up so can daffodils be far behind?
If your energy has been off-kilter lately you can blame Pluto and Uranus. These two planets are squaring off to invite us to awaken and transform. And when you read the Moon News below you’ll see some other things going on in the heavens that can affect your moods and energy.
I’m excited about a lot of fun events coming up. Be sure to save April 25 for the Bazaar! And we’ll be attending the Annapolis Film Festival at the end of the month. Will you?
Welcome to all our new members of RosemarySpace! We’re happy you are here!
“Open your heart to yourself. Everything you need to know lives inside you. Do not apologize for being you. You are the unique one the world has been waiting for. Be who you really are.”
There is a New Moon at 5:36 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Then a Total Solar Eclipse at 5:45 am EDT. (People are flocking to the Faroe Islands to see the totality.) And the Vernal (Spring) Equinox occurs when the Sun moves into the sign of Aries at 6:45 pm EDT.
“Q. How many fairy godmothers does it take to change a light bulb? A. Into what?
…Now is a good time to believe in faeries and to acknowledge all tiny tickles: desires, wishes, imaginings, beliefs, seeds of ideas…” [from We’Moon 20215]
The Spring Equinox is the start of the astrological year and a time of new beginnings, new growth, the emergence of trees and flowers and even longer days. What new desires or wishes are showing up in your heart? NOW is the time to plant them as seeds and watch them grow as the Moon grows in the sky from the New Moon/Dark Moon to her fullness in 2 weeks.
Believe that the Universe is a generous and supportive place in which to live. I mean, do you really have a choice of living somewhere else? Think of the Universe as your Fairy Godmother, ready with her magic wand to grant your biggest wish. What would you ask for?
Now is the time to ask! The Moon is shadowing the Sun for the solar eclipse so that we receive pure Moon energy, loving, emotionally-supportive energy. Take a moment now to reach into your heart and decide what you really want, what really matters to you. Now ask for it and also ask that you be shown how to move toward the realization of that dream.
Dream – Ask – Act. That’s the process. Then be grateful for whatever the Universe brings you because it is in keeping with your highest good.
What topics would you like to explore? I am working on a class schedule for the coming months and would love to hear from you! Dreams? Dowsing for Decisions? Spiritual Technologies and Tools? Let me know! I offer classes online as well as in person in Maryland and elsewhere so we can make it happen even if you live far away.
This Spring I am extending the Hypnosis for Healers Class into Part 2. If you weren’t able to join us for Part 1 you can purchase the recordings and materials here [LINK] and then join us in person in Maryland for Part 2 [or get the recordings]. We’ll be doing a lot of practice with creating guided visualizations for specific purposes. If you work with clients, lead meditation, do any kind of visualization exercises, you’ll want to learn the techniques and tips in these classes!
SAVE THE DATE: SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
The Shop for Mom (& Yourself!) Bazaar is happening! We have many amazing vendors bringing their wares for you to explore so that you can get ready for Mothers’ Day or just have fun and shop for something YOU would like to have. Bring a friend and come for a visit. More details coming soon. Be sure to reserve the date on your calendar! [Benefits our spiritual study center but there is no cost to attend!]
Take advantage of all this Energy of New and start something BIG this Spring!
This is a time to honor yourself and to LOVE yourself! Most of our training is about loving others, caring for others, helping others. But I have come to see that this training can lead us to believe that serving others means denying our own needs, serving until we are depleted and forced to cry ‘uncle.’
This moonth is about loving yourself enough to have love and service energy to spare to give to others.
Lisa Nichols teaches about ‘serving from the saucer.’ She says that a teacup represents you and the saucer catches the overflow when you are filled up. Don’t serve others from the teacup, which you must keep filled if you want to be of use to others.
Instead, serve from the overflow in the saucer. When the saucer is empty, you must fill up the cup (you) until it overflows again. If you empty the cup, there is nothing to give to others.
This makes sense, doesn’t it?
I frequently hear clients struggling with trying to find balance between taking care of others – children, parents, spouse – and taking care of self. Sometimes they have to get sick to get a day off! I hope you hear Lisa Nichols’ idea as permission to fill up your cup before you have to get sick.
Love is a powerful energy. It is meant to be shared, to radiate outward. But, remember, that ‘All love flows from self-love.’ Until you really embrace that belief, you will give until you are depleted and then you cannot help either yourself or others.
Self-love is not the same as the selfish belief that others don’t matter. Self-love says, ‘I love myself enough to take care of myself so that I am able to take care of others.’
That spiel on the airplane about ‘put your own oxygen mask on first before you help someone else with theirs’ has real meaning. If you pass out from lack of oxygen there are 2 of you in trouble!
So during this time, ask yourself, ‘How can I best serve myself? What is my inner self needing/wanting? How can I give that to myself?’
Maybe it’s time to explore what is holding you back from having great joy in your life. Dissolve the blocks that keep you from manifesting magnificence. Let them go as the moon gets smaller in the sky.
Clear the way for the new energy that is wanting to come in at the next New Moon on Friday, March 20 at 5:36 am Eastern Daylight Time. This will be a special day – with a Total Solar Eclipse and the Sun moving into Aries – Spring Equinox!
Hello Dear Readers!
I hope you have noticed I have been absent for the past couple of months. Rosemary and I have been regrouping and revamping during our hiatus, but now we are back – the Goddess is returning!
We have begun publishing a revised newsletter based on the phases of the moon. We will publish updates about twice each month just before the new and full moons. Why? Because the moon is a very important influence in our lives and awareness of her importance is a key to living a more conscious life.
The “Chinese New Year” based on a Lunar Calendar was celebrated about two weeks ago. The sun was exactly conjunct the moon Wednesday evening, February 18 at 6:47 pm Eastern. The year transitioned from a Wood Horse year to a Wood Sheep (or goat) year. We are now in this new energy.
As I begin publication of “Men and the Goddess” again I will draw material from the MoonLetters Rosemary and I publish, I continue to cast I Ching Gua (Hexagrams) on each New Moon which I’ll publish here and I continue to write poems which I will share here from time to time.
Meanwhile here are some excerpts from our MoonLetter published just after the New Moon and New Year:
“At the time of the Lunar New Year, each individual is invited to create a vision for the coming year that encompasses new wishes, new desires, new dreams, new delights. It is a time to lay to rest the past, the ups and downs of the past 13 Moon Cycles, and allow everything to start afresh. Let go. Detach. Dissolve that which holds you back and look forward to your new creations. Happy New Year!”
Happy Lunar New Year!!! The New Moon is ushering in the New Year according to the Chinese calendar and we are ready to move into the Wood Sheep year.
According to Feng Shui Grand Master Lillian Too, “The energies of this year of the wood sheep are very favourable in terms of business and other opportunities. It is important to begin to live in a state of greater awareness so that these opportunities don’t pass you by.”
This New Moon happened on Wednesday, February 18 at 6:47 pm Eastern Standard Time in the very last degree of the sign of Aquarius in the very last minute – 29 degrees 59 minutes. This is a powerful time for manifesting something new in your life, and this Lunar New Year gives you a fresh start for the next 13 Moon Cycles.
Three minutes after the New Moon was exact, the Sun and Moon were both in Pisces, moving us from consciousness of all humanity to a sense of interdepence with all – nature, plants and animals. We also look toward the spiritual aspects of situations and ourselves during the Sun’s time in Pisces. The Moon in Pisces invites us to connect deeply with our emotions.
What new dreams are you dreaming for yourself? What new ideas do you have for your life this year?Celebrate! Take advantage of new opportunities by committing to act in the direction of your dreams. You will be supported.
This New Moon is also a Super Moon when the Moon is closest to Earth and in alignment with the Sun and Earth. Its impact is enhanced when this is the case. Have you noticed that this week you are feeling a lot of energy? Or more drained than usual? I did an ‘electronics fast’ for a couple of days before the New Moon and it was exhilarating! Try it some time.
Get ready for the Full Moon which occurs on March 5 at 1:05 pm Eastern Time. The Full Moons are times to let go, to release the old.
You’ll be receiving another MoonLetter at the Full Moon! (But only if you subscribe.) We’ll also publish bits and pieces here on the blogs.
If you want to receive the MoonLetter each time it is published you can do that at TheScientificMystic.com When you subscribe you will also receive a meditation on the phases of the Moon given by Rosemary.
I hope you have been well while I’ve been “away”! 2015 is coming in with very different energy; enjoy!
