Whoo hooo! We are less than 24 hours out from a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini,
occuring at 6:53 AM ( EST )! And, it's always magical to pull the exact card which correlates with the exact moon cycle, which happens to be a Dark Moon
( the day prior to the New Moon ). I've only actually done this less than a handful of times, so it's very exciting to me. I like to take it as a sign that I am exactly where I am meant to be at the time I am meant to be here.
Firstly, the card, then we'll get on with some other things you might want to be aware of. No 1. Dark Moon: The Void
Mantra: "I freely release what I no longer need."
Your time to rest and reset is here! Release all that does not serve you; stop resisting! The void is a time of possibility, not just darkness. There is nothing to fear in letting go of negative patterns and habits, so for gosh sakes, let them go!
While the Full Moon—full attractive power—gets all the publicity, the Dark Moon—which offers the infinite possibilities of a clean slate—is just as powerful in its own way.
The Dark Moon often looks like just a darker piece of the night sky, and in some cultures, the way it appears harkens back to the idea of the 'void'. It is a place of unknowable secrets, a state of 'everything and nothng' or a place ot prepare or rest before moving on. To me, personally, htere is a relieving restful quality about this darkest Moon that allows pondering and decisions about wat we can jjettison before making fresh plans for the New Moon ( which is what I have been doing today for tomorrow ).
If you find yourself resisting the Dark Moon, it is usually a clear sign that you are being stubborn about letting go of something that is old and not serving you in a positive way any longer. Often that is a fear or pattern that was created to protect you in some way; however, it is now antiquated and that protection is no longer needed for you to feel or be safe.
This Moon is not only powerful, but incredibly gentle in the way it can help you unravel what actually is so you can emrace the fresh start of tomorrow.
Relax, reframe and think about how much better your life will be without that bad habit, fear, or pattern. Get very clear about the possibilities of this transformation and what it will give you in real terms.
This is the power of the Dark Moon: it is the optimum time in the cycle to release the old and cut the cords of relationships and traumas that deserve no time and attentionn in your present.
Secondly, this Dark and New Moon Solar Eclipse are both in the sign of Gemini; however, the latter willl transit into Cancer at 3:23 AM Friday morning. This means between 3:23 & 6:53 AM the New Moon will be in Cancer.
The New Moon is tomorrow, Thursday, and Thursday is ruled by Jupiter. This is the planet of Expansion, money, prosperity, and generosity! Not only do you have the perfect opportunity to attract all you desire, you also have an opportunity to be generous to others so as to enhance that attraction.
The first 21.5 hours of the New Moon is in Gemini! Gemini is the Air sign of communication, as well as the playful sign of fun & games. However, be wary of signing contracts or beginning new ventures, as things begun now are easily changed by outside influence.
The final 2.5 hours of the New Moon is in Cancer, who just happens to be ruled by the Moon herself. This energies stimulates emotional rapport between people. It also pinpoints need while supporting growth and nurturance. Cancer loves domestication, their home, surroundings, and family. They work hard to inundate their abodes with beauty and balance.
Thus, Friday and through the weekend would be a perfect time to tend to household and yard chores. It's also a great time for projects and sprucing up.
If you want to enhance this Dark Moon energy, wear White and burn Marjoram. If you want to enhance your personal energy for the New Moon tomorrow, wear Turquoise and burn Carnation.
Your companion stone for the Dark Moon is Jet
Working almost like an energetic filter, Jet
is a wonderful grounding stone that has intense purification and protection properties. Jet is known for clearing the aura of impure energies and is an important stone for the medicine bag. Jet can be used to cleanse other crystals by placing them in a bowl with several smaller pieces of Jet.
