The Magical Energy Of The Moon

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe Moon has a powerful influence on our lives. Not only does it determine the tides of the ocean and how plants grow, but you may have noticed it also affects our mood! Connecting to the powerful phases of the Moon can bring enlightenment to your life by way of the moon’s cycles and movement. It can shape our lives and the choices we make. Being in tune with the Moon’s powerful energy can bring you greater awareness of body, mind and soul.

Depending how the Sun, Moon and Earth align on a particular day, only a part of the Moon is usually visible to us. The tracking of the Moon’s phases goes back thousands of year in various spiritual traditions and cultural customs. Traditionally, the New Moon is considered to be the start of the month and a good time to start anew. And the Full Moon is seen as a time of celebration, delight, and mystery.

A Full Moon occurs every 29.5 days, when the Earth is situated directly between the Sun and the Moon, making it appear to us on Earth as a complete circle… illuminated and breathtaking! Native Americans relied on the Moon to guide them in daily life. They gave symbolic names for each of the Full Moons, based on the unique events of each particular month of the year.

January – Wolf Moon

The January Moon is thus named due to the cold, snowy winters, when wolves would howl hungrily outside tribal villages, looking for food. January’s Full Moon is also known as ‘Old Moon’ and ‘Ice Moon.’

February – Snow Moon

February’s Full Moon is named for the abundant snow that usually occurs during the month. The snow made it hard to hunt, and food in the winter was scarce. Therefore it is also known as the ‘Hunger Moon.’

The Mythical Mysteries Of Crows And Ravens

click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comCrows and ravens are common in the superstitions of both the ancient Greeks and Romans. Both cultures considered these mysterious birds highly significant in the practice of augury, an ancient divination practice of interpreting omens or prophecies from the observed flight patterns of birds.

In the Greco-Roman world, the soothsayers, known as augers would predict future events by examining the behavior of birds, which was known as ‘taking the auspices.’ Crows and ravens were considered especially significant, both for their ominous black feathers, as well as their flight patterns and eerie behavior.  It was believed that if a crow or raven flew in from the east or south, for example. It was considered an omen of good, positive fortune.

Ravens and crows mythology is also found in the native cultures of North America. In addition to being portrayed as tricksters, the intelligence of these birds is often a prominent feature in their characterization. In one Native American story, the raven is described as a shapeshifter who stole a box of light owned by the chief of Heaven, and flew away with it. The raven dropped the box, and light broke into many pieces, creating the stars, the Moon, and the Sun.

Astrological Magic Of The New Moon

Click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.com/0006The Moon card in the Tarot reminds me of the Facebook relationship status: It’s Complicated. It not only can bring up our deepest fears, but also speaks of the natural cycles of life. I am ever changing, reinventing myself, navigating by Moon time.

In the summertime and living in a big city, my mother’s fear for me always used to be that I might “get into trouble,” since I had “way too much time on my hands.” So, every summer, before I was old enough to get my work permit to land a summer job, she would schedule summer classes just to keep me busy.

One particular summer, I was enrolled in a sewing class at a woman’s house down the street from us. I was able to choose from several projects, and I immediately chose the two piece bathing suit! I was so proud of my work, and could not wait to show it off, but my mother was understandably cautious, because of my red hair, fair skin, and freckles. I suggested a compromise: “moon bathing.”

Reluctantly she agreed, so I took out the lounge chair, flashlight, my small transistor radio, and some reading material. Wearing my two-piece bathing suit, I basked in the Moon’s glow, while listening to music, reading, and even dancing. That’s the summer when I fell in love with the Moon, and started on the path of following her cycles. And I have been forever changed.

For me, every New Moon brings her own magic and invites us to make wishes for that lunation. Each New Moon has her own personality and asks us to dwell in the possibilities. We also experience different New Moon energies according to the annual procession of the Zodiac. As you make your wishes for each lunation on the New Moon, the ideas below may inspire you in setting your own New Moon intentions for every month of the year.

Easy Manifesting Ritual For Today’s New Moon

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comToday’s New Moon offers a great opportunity to invite new growth and fresh opportunity into your life. The New Moon is a time of rising power and an ideal time for new beginnings and manifesting your desires. This is the perfect moment to set your intention for a new love, a new job, a new home, or any new project you may have been planning.

The phases of the Moon do not imply that the Moon changes in any way. It is the relative position of the Earth and the Moon that changes, creating a variety of angles in which we receive the sunlight reflected off the surface of the moon.

A full lunar cycle is approximately 29 days. The moon ‘grows’ from New Moon and gets ‘bigger,’ until it reaches a Full Moon, after which it recedes again. The eight Moon Phases in order are New moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full moon, Waning Gibbous, Third Quarter, and finally Waxing Crescent.

The lunar cycle does not fully coincide with a calendar month. Some months may have two New Moons, while others only one. When there are two New Moons in the same months, the second one is called a Black Moon and it occur about every 32 months. The New Moon is considered, in most spiritual traditions, the start of the lunar cycle.

Manifesting With The Lunar Cycles

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIn Astrology, the Moon is deemed to be the celestial body most relevant to our everyday life patterns and mundane activities. This is because the Moon is the fastest moving astrological body and thus it is more specific to our earthly rhythms and daily routines. We can see this effect in nature, as the Moon influences several of the earthly rhythms, such as the ocean tides, animal behaviors, and even women’s menstrual cycles.

Because the moon wields this kind of influence, we can ride her current, if we pay closer attention to her cycles, rather than swim against it when it comes to achieving our goals in life. You don’t have to be an astrologer to follow the rhythms of the Moon and use them to help you in getting what you want. Any old calendar will typically detail the lunar cycles, and all you need to do is hang one on your wall and take heed.

A basic understanding of the major lunar rhythms, and what they mean energetically, can easily be incorporated into your life and monthly routine, in order to make ‘big waves’ in your everyday existence.

New Moon

When you think New Moon, think increasing. The New Moon heralds the waxing moon cycle, which means between this time and the Full Moon, the Moon is increasing in size. Thus, the energy is conducive for bringing in new things, growth, and anything that we want to see more of.

If you wish to begin anything new, such as a fitness regime, diet or educational path, then choose this time, between the New Moon and the Full Moon, to launch your new endeavor. If you want something to grow, like a tree, or an investment, this is also a good time to get it started.

How To Use Your Astrological Natal Chart

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comIn simple terms, your natal chart is the astrological positions of the planets at the exact time you were born. No two are exactly alike, even for identical twins, because each person’s time and place of birth are different. Free chart makers are widely available online, and all you’ll need is your time and place of birth.

So, once you find yours, what do you do with it? Your birth chart is a kind of road map for life. It will spell out your strengths and weaknesses, as well as hidden dangers, behavioral patterns and potential opportunities.

Each of the planets, including the Sun and Moon, are placed in one of twelve houses (segments) of your chart, representing hours of the day. The movements of the larger planets like Jupiter and Saturn point to larger trends like work habits and societal change.

The ascendant, or sign which was on the horizon at the time of birth, is a powerful insight into one’s personality as well, so it’s helpful to know precise times. An over- or under-abundance of elements or particular Zodiac signs will also provide a mirror to the owner of the chart.
