Big Dreams, Big Actions

Tonight's new moon speaks to an aspect that is near and dear to all of us: passion and creativity.

Given that new moons are always a time for new beginnings, it is a good time to ask ourselves exactly what we want more of in life. Each moon has a different emphasis, and so at this time, we have an opportunity to state clearly what we want and then find creative ways to bring those visions into reality. How can we take our inner visions and actualize them?

What an opportunity we have before us to project our dreams into the world and change our lives. Our entire lives are filled with this potential. How many of us will attempt to develop our potential into something more? The new moon is simply a great symbolic opportunity to harmonize our energies with those of nature to capitalize on that momentum.

Once we have mastered getting our basic needs met (food, shelter and clothing) then we arrive in playtime, where we can begin to turn our thoughts to what else we want in life. What is it that brings us joy, pleasure, humor, happiness and mirth? What is there beyond the basics, which offers us a perspective from which we can celebrate life?

Now is the time to express the romantic, fun loving, full of wonder spirit and express in dramatic flourishes, that which has the ability to excite and inspire us to engage in our big dreams. Where is the zest for living? If you don't know, go on a treasure hunt and find it. If you do know, use it more often and more freely. Moon celebrations are intoxicating times, full of the dreamy stuff that illuminates our path, our journey, our next step from our present into our future.
