Dark Moon in Aries
It is the Dark Moon in Aries tonight
The Dark Moon and New Moon are different within my spiritual practise. The Dark Moon is when the moon is completely in shadow, the deep, the dark, the underworld, the unconscious, the void, the mystery. In my practise it has become a time when I do a moon forecast for the moonth ahead using Tarot and Oracle Cards. It has been a time of energy clearing for myself, my circle and my home, it is a time to reflect and journal on my intention set the previous New Moon which is always the same as the following Dark Moon for example this moonth - Aries.
Which brings me to the New Moon, this is the sliver of moon in the sky like a Cheshire cat grin, it is usually 2 – 3 days following the new moon in the next astrological sign. I use this sliver of New Moon like Artemis’s bow to send forth my arrow of intention out into the new moonth.
The New Moon is the beginning – the sankalpa, the intention and the Dark Moon, when the astrological sign is back as it was at the New Moon, is the reflection point, the death, the dark, the void. It is the key, the reminder to look back at out intentions and reflect on the lessons learnt. Did your intentions come to fruition? What lessons have you learnt about your nature along the way?
The astrological signs create a flavour if you like for each moon depending on their elemental and individual correspondences. You can go a deep into the astrology of the signs as you like. I feel into each one, let my senses tune into it through the filter of my current experience. This Aries moonth has been about action
