As a witch, I am aware that I am going through many changes, alterations and maturing into the path. My abilities are stronger than what they once were and the responsibility that walks hand-in-hand with it is becoming more apparent over time. I'm more able to take a step back and inspect my beliefs from an outer perspective to the point where I feel like I can provide stable advice to others and be a more receptive learner. I'm more fond of wearing black and have started to balance with my dark goddess energy who knows when to keep silent. I certainly feel that I have been very inward and could do with taking this new moon energy in order to flip that around a bit.
I really feel that I have benefitted from reading The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, and was about 150 pages in when my boyfriend accidentally left it on the plane on the way to Tasmania. Once I've read that I can give you all a full review, but it would take a while! I'd still highly recommend it even though I'm only part way through.
The new moon is a time of reflection - looking back on the last moon phase and looking forward to the rising, waxing moon energy, setting your own personal goals towards the full moon. I feel like I can be more honest and relaxed with people and possibly with myself.
I have been so inwardly silent that I haven't even written here for quite some time! Not to mention that I have also been very busy.
I really felt Mars entering Aries on the 1st of April all but two days ago as I am more driven, clear-thinking and charged for all of the challenges lying ahead with this Arien energy! It is a time to take charge & proclaim in the new moon what kind of elements of your character need strengthening from the Mars energy that is coming to the fore. You need to understand your motivations in order to strengthen your character, so inspect those motivations in order to move forward to strengthen yourself as the moon's energy waxes.
