Whether you view it as “woo woo” or not, paying attention to all things lunar is a fun way to find some semblance of a connection with nature in spite of our urban surroundings. Many gather in honor of lunar cycles, paying homage to its gravitational, mythological and spiritual forces. If anything, you might use it as an excuse to read up on Pagan rites and goddess worship.
Often, new moons are considered an ideal time to reset. Should you choose to pay attention to the moon’s cycles and the ancient, attendant symbolism, you might heed the advice of some who suggest setting intentions for things you’d like to create, develop, and manifest. There was, of course, a solar eclipse last night, though very little of it was visible from inhabited land. In other words, we didn’t see it. But maybe we *felt* it? Either way, we’re using it as a great excuse to will some positivity into your life—or at least an alternative to happy hour.
If you’re looking to get more deeply in touch with the moon might we suggest one of the below events? Most involve joining others in meditation, circles and some even suggest chocolate. Remember, these events celebrate the new moon—there’s a whole new crop of events, usually more bacchanalian, coming later in the month for the full moon. We’ll keep you posted on that in case you’d like to get weird and witchy again.
