Namaste Well Wishers, Re Bonjour, Hello Again!
A further update for today’s lunar activities. At 4:23 pm EDT today the Waning Crescent Moon makes her appearance at 11∘Aries 21′. This Moon is also called the Balsamic Moon.
The Moon is in Aries all day today, for a reminder of the mood and tone of the Aries Moon please click here.
To catch a glimpse of the tiny sliver of Waning Crescent Moon in the sky we have to be up early as the Moon rises a few hours before the Sun and sets a few hours after Noon.
In reference to the planting cycle, the Waning Crescent or Balsamic Moon is a time for the maturation of the seed as the rest of the plant dies away. The entire energy of the plant is now concentrated in the seed being prepared for the next planting cycle.
Just as soil needs to rest before planting, we too are asked to take some rest at this phase. We are to reflect upon and let go of things, people, and situations that no longer help us or provide happiness in our lives.
From the Book Practical Astrology, some suggestions for activities to pursue at this time are: discarding unwanted things, catching up on our rest, to tie up loose ends (billing for work already completed), meditating, recording our dreams (they are often numerous and rich during this phase).
The New Moon in Gemini will be with us very soon on 20th May 2012 at 7:47 pm EDT.
Please feel free if you have anything to share about your dreams or something you let go of during this phase by leaving a comment with this post or e-mailing directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blessings on your day, in every way!
