This is the time in the month where you may start to notice that you suddenly feel less inspired to vision and create with your mind, and more turned on by the idea of clearing space and working with your hands.
Now is the time to start making preparations for conscious ‘moontime‘ (menstruation). Not only does the waning moon help you ‘go with the flow’, but attending consciously to your self care in this time will make space for your other ‘flow’ (menstruation) to become a time of relaxation and restoration (rather than a time of pain and tension).
Now is a perfect time of the month to reflect:
- Are you living in line with your values?
- What needs transformation in your life?
- What structures or support systems must be put in place so that you can live a life of your conscious choosing?
- More importantly, what obstacles do you need to overcome or eliminate in order to make room for a way of life that works better for you?
Get out that dusty journal or enter deep conversation with loved ones to assimilate and absorb that which you encountered, struggled with and learned in the previous weeks.
Release and let go of that which is no longer needed (ie: clear clutter in your home).
Take care of your unfinished business, so that you can create a clear slate for yourself moving forward (including unfinished business with people).
Complete your unfinished projects so that you can move forward into new realms of creativity and make space for the visioning time of the new moon that is on its way.
How will you need to rework your plans for this week so that you stay in the flow?
If you notice that you are ‘pushing the river’ on something, or that you keep coming up against obstacles, stop trying to force it.
Get clear on what the obstacles are and systematically remove them one step at a time. Acting on that will get you back in the flow. The energies at this time of the month support self reflection and movement toward more space.
While your mind might want you to ‘keep pushing’, in the end you’ll get more accomplished if you are simply willing to put down the things that just aren’t coming together for you easily right now.
If you continue to ‘push’ things, they might still get done, but they will take you much longer than they should……and you’ll still be left with the clearing you need to do on all levels (putting you ‘behind’ in the bigger picture-exactly the opposite of why we ‘push’ in the first place).
If you flow in cycle with the moon’s energies….everything you need and desire will begin to fall into place. Trust it.
Allow the moon to help you cultivate harmony in your life. As you continue to pay attention, you will come to fine tune your natural rhythms.
