This new cycle will challenge us in both our external and internal world. Reminding us that the external realm is merely a reflection of what lies within us: our inner truth of character, what empowers us and drives us forward, and what shadows we have hidden which still go bump in heavy nights of the soul. Combining that all, we are encouraged to move forward with Strength and Courage.
This Dark Moon brings an end to a phase of short falls and incomplete work. What begins is an internal inspiration that wishes to make changes in the external world that we are dissatisfied with. What helps us prepare for this is to start pushing back against that which is impeding us: oppressive circumstances, negative people who attempt to crush our dreams. What helps us allow this new phase to enter and pass is to re-asses everything from a different perspective. What is the truth within us and how is it reflected in the outer world? As we push through conflict, instead of thinking about how actions and situation are placed on us (ie Victim Mentality), think of how it is a reflection of the shadow within us, as in how may we be creating and affecting this conflict (Mentality of an Empowered Co-Creator with the Universe). Going from wondering why people are attacking us, to thinking about how are our actions are causing the “conflict” that we face. This brings us to what Crowns us, which is Judgement: coming to terms with everything and acknowledging our personal responsibility in what is transpiring. This awareness brings better judgement in our choices. What grounds us is taking care of any erratic energy that comes from anxiety or lack of preparedness when facing the myriad issues and conflicts, calming down the inner energy so that it flows in sync and supports our mind, body & spirit. Then being more hands on with what is happening around us so the external world reflects our internal structure. Let the energy of preparation transmute into the outer world: How can I be better prepared? What should I work on? What steps should I take? What aspects of my life do I need to understand better? How can I Empower myself? What is my intuition telling me about preparations?
Looking more into the energies around us, in the distant past there was a time when we were in strict control over our own domain and felt like an Emperor of our own realm. Then as time passed, that cycle ended and now another has come to pass. Right now the Universe wants us to know that, as we start this new cycle, wee are Free and the only things manipulating the situation are ourselves and our egos. As this new cycle stretches us both internally and externally, it is best for us to be prepared. Have our energy organized so that we can support ourselves and have the drive to keep going. The incoming challenges is a streak of bad luck, which will frustrate us, but as we move forward with Strength the conflict and seemingly bad luck makes us focus on what is most important so that we can let go of any unnecessary burdens and all that which no longer serves us or assist us in reaching our goal. We worry about losing our optimistic drive to move forward, so we can add the self-care practice of tending to our inner dream and reminding ourselves that it will happen. The outcome card shows what we are building this cycle, and that is Inner Wealth: Inner Strength, Courage, Confidence, Character, Integrity, Intuition, Focus & Intention, and more!
The theme of this cycle is: Creating our own Path.
