Starting with the September New Moon in Virgo, I have been setting intentions with the new moon and seeing it play out through the moon cycle. I had no idea playing this game would be so powerful. It has accelerated my growth like a rocket ship.
This past month I set intentions around balance and relationship with the Libra New Moon. I cried through the first two weeks as I released past hurts, then with the illumination of the full moon, anger started surfacing. I have been spending lots of time with trees and this helps immensely, along with a group I am in that creates space for deep feelings. One of the intentions I set is that I feel safe in my body. I gained insight into how past experience has kept me from having relationships with men simply for lack of feeling safe. I also set the intention that I am at the center of my life. All sorts of events gave me a chance to really put this into action.
Now that I have set intentions for a few moon cycles, I can see how the integration of one cycle feeds right into the intentions for the next cycle. After months of not playing, I took my guitar in to get new tuners and immediately saw how this was going to lead me right into Scorpio deeply felt expression. I sang and made up songs almost continuously as a child and stopped as I grew into adulthood and became self-conscious about it. I’m terrified, but one of my new intentions will be around writing songs and actually sharing them with other people.
I am hoping more of you will join me for this next cycle starting with the Scorpio New Moon Eclipse on Sunday morning, November 3, at about 4:50 am PST. I am not completely clear about my intentions, yet, but they will have to do with deeply felt expression and allowing my deepest desires to bubble forth. Scorpio is about going deep and finding the jewels that we have buried under our conditioning and past hurts. It’s about full, integrated, authentic expression no matter how deep we have to go and how scary it might seem to retrieve our true selves. To learn more check out this brilliant post, The Phoenix Rises, by my friend Brett. There is also a page on his website specifically about The Moon Game.
What would the world be like with every one of us fully alive, excited and overflowing with our full potential and true expression? We see this in children sometimes. We can be that. It just might mean facing some fears. The world needs us. We need us.
Please let me know in the comments or contact me personally to share your Scorpio New Moon intentions. I would love to hear them and to know that you are playing the game with me.
