Preparing to Enter the Temple of the Moon


The countdown begins with only 5 more days till we enter the Temple of the Moon. The intent of this month’s long journey is an exploration in the varied energies that flow through any given lunar (not calendar) month as the moon cycles through its astrological and lunar phases; beginning with the New Moon. The daily postings will reflect my impressions of the energy of the day and of time spent each day in consciously opening to the subtleties and nuances in change and flow. I chose to begin this study with the New Moon in the astrological sign of Cancer, whose ruling planet is the Moon. The astrological sign of Cancer is typified by its Cardinal (the beginning or initial surge) modality and the flow of emotion and the intuitive nature. Additionally, the Sun is also in the astrological sign of Cancer, lending its strength and lighting the way with its solar fires. More about the energies of astrological Cancer in the New Moon daily post on July 8th.

Remember, that with any journey such as this, the impressions presented are solely those of the writer or teacher and filtered through complex layers of personal experience, knowledge base, biases and level of expertise. So with that being said, I offer up my thoughts that they may serve to prod you to look at bit deeper at what we call the lunar energy and influence. A New Moon Ritual of Dedication to this journey will be posted on Friday, July 5th to give you time to prepare for its working on the eve of July 7th. It is good practice to begin any exploration that encompasses more than just a cursory observation with a formal action of intent. This can take whatever form you wish and be as simple as lighting a single candle of declaration or performing a small personal ritual. Do what feels right for you and is in accord with your particular spiritual path. I would suggest that you journal your own experiences. The time spent in this action will reinforce the connection you are building and will be an invaluable resource to return to as you progress in your lunar workings.

Check back on Friday July 5th for a New Moon Dedication Ritual to be done on July 7th.
