Happy New Moon! It’s the first new moon of 2018 and it will not disappoint. This new moon let’s talk finances and security. Whether you are unemployed, living paycheck to paycheck, middle class, or have a lavish lifestyle, our society functions through an exchange of currency. What’s your relationship like with money? Do you find that it leaves just as quickly as it arrives? Are others always asking you for loans and never paying you back? Or do you have a hefty savings and make investments that continue to grow your assets? This new moon if you’ve been working on your relationship to money, worth, and wealth its time to take it up a notch. By that I mean let’s get practical. Build skills, take classes, read books, put what you learn into practice.
The feminine is in her power. Luxuriating in the depths of the underworld she gestates waiting to be reborn. She stands at the cross roads beckoning you to come forth with her. To leave the space of deceit and abuse to be your pure self. The winds of change are here. They are blowing in without hesitation. If you find that you have had a hard time releasing a person, place, thing, or behavior there is spiritual support for you. I for one have a hard time letting go of relationships whether friends, lovers, or even jobs. I want to keep trying and not be a “failure”. What it really boils down to is I’m way to concerned with what others think of me. Yupp, my shadow loves to compare myself to others. Eventually, I get to the point where I realize this situation is just not healthy for me or them/it. Had I spoken up early on things would not have gotten where they eventually end up.
This new moon, take a moment and find your power. From that space speak your truth. There is a certain charm that comes from being honest with our self and others. It is the grace of the fool with the wisdom of the hermit. Apply this power to your relationship with money and security. Our finances are just like any other mirror. They reflect how we feel about ourselves and the world around us. There are of course things out of our hands such as the family we are born into, our race and gender expectations. Each of these effects how we interact with the world. What we may initially believe that we can achieve. Some write their own stories. Create their own reality. Some the pieces never fall into place and they find themselves reliving the patterns of their family, race, and society. What can you control? What can you practically change?
