WELCOME BACK NAVIGATORS OF THE ASTRAL PLANE! Eclipse season has come to a close, Mercury is direct and I wish I could say all is right in the world. Instead I offer this post with the hope that it brings some small comfort.

Without further ado! The card for the NEW MOON, pulled from Amy von Harrington’s deck...


It’s been a while since I last wrote. I prefer to just ride the waves of eclipse season with everyone else and not try to write about it since my words are likely to come out all wobbly anyway. We are now on the other side of the eclipses with a New Moon imminent tomorrow night in the sign of Virgo.  This New Moon welcomes us home, back to our bodies. “Start small,” it says. “And do what is needed.” When you are in a hurry or in crisis it is hard to keep focus or attention on the present moment, on what is in front of you. If you are rushing to get to school or work the focus is on where you need or want to be not where you are which is probably why you tend to be more clumsy in these moments, spilling beverages or tripping over a bump in the rug. This New Moon does not suggest there will be less to worry about moving forward, in fact there may be more. But we are presented with an opportunity to alter our approach at this New Moon, which could render all the change, challenge and crisis more manageable. 

I want to say that there is nothing more special than the present moment, I’m almost certain that this is true because no moment can be replicated or repeated, it is entirely singular. Even if you were able to do something in exactly the same way it would still be unique because it happened at a different time, a time that we can never recover or return to. The New Moon in Virgo advises, that if you want to increase your awareness of the present moment you can start by becoming aware of your physical body as the vehicle for that experience. If this is too much to consider you can begin with something smaller like your pinky finger. Think of it as sort of thermometer, what does the air feel like against that finger? What would you say the temperature is based on the sensations in your pinky? When you feel ready you can start to share this conversation with your whole hand, maybe even your entire arm. It is this approach, the dialogue between self and environment, that can make make the world a little more manageable, and perhaps a little less overwhelming. This is the method suggested by the New Moon and the card I’ve pulled for this New Moon, The Queen of Pentacles.

If the Queen of Pentacles wants to make something or make something grow she asks what it is made of and needs. The Queen of Pentacles is in dialogue with her body and her environment and it is this conversation that creates abundance and comfort in her world.
