Hi, friends! It’s Erin from TBH Magic back again. Are you ready for the New Moon?
If you’re new to studying the magical realm, we astrologers (and magicians of all varieties) love to look at what the moon is doing on any given day to inform our actions, or inactions! If it’s strong enough to control the ocean tides and women’s menstrual cycles...it’s certainly strong enough to impact other day-to-day activities!
The Moon rules our emotions. It’s how we feel through life's ups and downs. It’s our innermost self...our planetary safe haven. My sun is in Cancer, which is ruled by the moon, so I’m a certified “moon child” and have always felt especially attracted to the idea of following the moon’s phases. Luckily, it’s the Age of Aquarius and it’s becoming more and more popular to not only acknowledge what the moon is up to, but to also plan around it! And in VIRGO SEASON, no less, “planning” is a solid answer to most questions.
No moon phase is just the same. When the moon is void of course, we might feel a little lost and directionless. When the moon is full, we are shining in our highest expression and hitting a culmination point. But we’re here to talk about new moons today!
The monthly new moon is a cosmic opportunity to manifest your dreams.
The sky is completely dark, which I like to compare to a blank canvas ready for a brilliant fresh perspective. It’s a time where, depending on your birth chart, you might feel especially energized by the idea of CREATION and manifesting your wildest dreams.
As always, these mantras come from a mix of my astrological training AND my intuition. They are backed by extensive astrological research as well as informed by a healthy dose of guidance from spirit.
If you’re familiar with your birth chart, I recommend reading your rising sign mantra. Astrologer’s write horoscopes based on the rising, or ascendant sign, because it allows us to determine the houses of the chart; knowing the houses informs where the energy will be experienced in your life. If you’re not sure what your rising sign is, book a reading with me to learn more and just read your sun sign this time! If you DO know your rising sign, I encourage you to read both and see which one feels more accurate at this time.
