Forget resolutions, set your intentions!
The New Year is an auspicious time to start any rejuvenation programme, and with the potency of a New Moon on the 2nd January, 2022 is particularly opportune.
The influence of the moon is well documented. From Dr Tom White’s pioneering work on circadian and circalunar rhythms, the effect of lunar cycles on menstruation, and Ferris Jabr’s studies of marine wildlife, to the ancient lore of the zodiac, angels, and the Mansions of the Moon.
The impact of the full moon on natural processes is well-known - something our ancestors recognised with names drawn from ancient life. The flower moon signified the start of spring, the frost moon heralded the first frost and the harvest moon, the time to bring in the produce. The Druids had numerous ceremonies celebrating the power of the moon.
Many myths and legends are based on the moon - tales of werewolves, words such as ‘lunatic’ and the notion of the Blue Moon. And it’s not just in the West. The Japanese celebrate Tsukimi ‘or Moon Viewing’ every full moon. Even now, many people feel restless during a full moon, and as we can block out natural light with blinds and eye masks, we realise – it’s more than light, it’s energy.
New Moon, New Vision
Our rejuvenation programme begins and ends with the New Moon.
We start on the New Moon of 2nd January through to 1st February. We pass through the phases of the moon, drawing on the moon’s energies and sharing ours in return.
The programme includes distant attunements to the Sun, Moon, and Earth, the zodiac signs of Capricorn and Aquarius (and their Guardian Angels Nadiel and Cambiel respectively), plus Imbolc and the start of the Chinese New Year on Tuesday 1st February.
We will create a supportive space for a select group of participants and build on strengthening our intuition and resolve, drawing on ancient wisdom to balance our chakras, align ourselves to the moon cycle and to create our best life. We will also include additional tools, with vision boards, new moon abundance rituals and the power of crystals and nature.
Whilst I do run this course successfully through lunar cycles at other times of the year, the first moon cycle of the year is the most auspicious as it sets the stage for the calendar year.
Sunday 2nd January, New Moon @ 18:35; start of our New Year New Moon Lunar Cycle Alignment Programme
We use an active WhatsApp group to work through the 28 Mansions of the Moon, (as identified in my sister Angela McGerr's Angel Almanac) and connect with the daily guardians of the lunar cycle. This enables us to utilise the supportive energy of each lunar phase to move through life, embracing new opportunities.
Attuned and Aligned This is a fun and participative event, with members of the group supporting each other throughout. Participants will be joining from their homes, with at least 6 online group mentoring sessions with e-mail and What's App support.
We ran the course three times in 2021. Eight of the original participants chose to repeat the course a second time, and three repeated it for a third.
The next New Moon Vision course is Sunday 2nd January - Tuesday 1st February, incorporating 1st February Imbolc Festivities.
