Whenever there’s a New Moon, it offers you an opportunity to reset and restart. A New Moon is a potent time to set intentions. It’s the start of a brand new cycle. Whatever phase the moon is in as you read this, I invite you to consider approaching the next New Moon with a fresh perspective.

Ask yourself: What am I focusing on? Take a moment and consider if your focus is e-x-p-a-n-d-i-n-g your joy, compassion, and freedom or shrinking it.

Astrologer Lena Stevens writes,

We are so imprinted to focus our attention on
what is lacking
what is next
what is more
what is better
what is the next step, and
how we can improve,
that we are not in the present and appreciating what we have right now in the moment.

I can relate, can you? Our minds naturally look for what’s wrong rather than what’s right. It’s a PRACTICE to shift our focus in a way that invites us into possibilities and new horizons. And when we intentionally pay attention to what’s beautiful, what’s satisfying, what’s great just as it is, we naturally open up to MORE of this!

When the energy is heavy in the collective, it can be easy to fall into negative thinking. We can feel off-balance, which causes us to default into self-protection. This can cause us to ruminate about what’s wrong rather than recognize and appreciate what’s going well. When this happens, it makes it really hard to access feelings of satisfaction with the present moment – and with ourselves.

Do you know when the next New Moon will happen? I invite you to check your calendar and make note of it ahead of time. What small ritual can you do to call on the energy of new beginnings to reset any negative thinking and open up space for joy, satisfaction, and beauty?

Let’s keep the conversation going
