New Moon Phase: begin

Moon in Leo

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Bhairavi (The Fierce Goddess)

Skill: find and embrace something new

Negative Imprint: old rituals, arrogance, jealousy, ageism, overbearing, territorial

Positive Imprint: new rituals, openness, compromise, innovation, revitalization

The Moon continues to travel through the sign of Leo after making conjunction with the Black Moon earlier today.  This means the theme of change is strong today, particularly change to the order or status of things.  Those with the Sun or Black Moon in the signs of Leo or Aquarius feel the effects most keenly, though each of us faces our shadow side at one point or another while the Moon is in Leo.  As I discussed in the new audio "Singing Stones Bridging Over the Chaos" (available on the top of, where I talk about what's ahead this month, we want to be particularly mindful of when the Moon enters the sign of our own natal Black Moon, as well.  When that happens, it will produce a face-to-face encounter with ourselves in order to call forth something from deep in our hearts. (If you do not know the sign of your natal Black Moon you can refer to Appendix I in my book on the Black Moon, available for free download, and read the corresponding information in Chapter 2.)

Today's energy tends to bring the need to make a choice about something significant.  A combination of the old and the new is the best option.  Things must change, but they can build from the familiar.  Leaps of faith and the crossing of chasms is implied all month long, as is heart-healing.  If you are feeling stuck, boxed in, or trapped, or if there are conflicting views, use your heart to guide you.  The heart has neural (brain) cells also, so it is truly a heart/mind combination when we listen to our hearts.

A revitalization of our energy is on tap today if we are open to changes.  Self-care/self-nurturing activities multiply the refreshing effects.  Spiritual warriors tend to put others first, thinking they can tap their inner well of resources for a long time without need for replenishment.  Today, be willing to extend yourself to yourself.  Fill yourself back up.  Taking in some of the glorious Leo sunlight.

If a grand dramatic performance unfolds for your viewing today, look deeper.  Are you being played?  It is easy for things to not be as they seem today.  As such, we want to be wise in what we reveal.

We are living in the midst of systematic deconstruction of the new world order's agenda.  This has been planned for quite a long time.  My initial experience with the Mahavidyas, the personae of the Wisdom Goddess Gaia Sophia, was in early 2009.  At that time, the Mahavidya Kali explained to me that the "time of change" was upon the world.  This time last year during the Mahavidya Bhairavi's cycle, we were fortifying our hearts for what was to come - for what has developed over the past year.  We became brave-hearted.  We are now becoming lionhearted.  And, like Bhairavi, lions are fierce.  We face the changes with ferocity of spirit and the vision of life in natural world order.
