Balsamic Moon Phase: trust, magic

God of Will/Desire: Kathe (God of the South)
Skill: "de-personalize and re-universalize"
(Note: I will post a separate Sunday report tomorrow. A "campfire" recording may also be on its way. The standard headings of True Alignments, etc. are not listed today, as there is only one focus of consequence. See below.)
The "100 Hours" of the Balsamic Moon comes to a close today. The Virgo New Moon enters at the following times:
UNIVERSAL TIME: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2015 6:41 am
EASTERN TIME: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2015 2:41 am
PACIFIC TIME: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2015 11:41 PM
Until that time -- today -- there is only one thing to "do," but it is perhaps one of the hardest things to do: step outside of ourselves and connect with something greater. This means we de-focus on our personal/individual lives and re-focus on the fellowship of humanity.
It is the job of wise owls to, as best we can, de-personalize pretty much everything that comes our way today. Though things happen in our lives, oftentimes dramatic and deeply emotional things, today it is important that we not become mired in ourselves, project ourselves, react to others, succumb to wounding, or pontificate on the goings-on of our personal world.
The Sabian symbol for the Virgo New Moon is "a girls basketball team." As the saying goes, there is no I in team.
Until the New Moon, we are like wise owls in a tree, immersed in the scene of nature, but watching it from a different perspective.
After the New Moon, we are like wise owls that come out of the tree and fly up to join together in a ring of wings around the world (meditation below). A collective of human beings unifying around the idea that "love prevails" and sending goodwill to all is a powerful thing.
There are wise owls all over the world, as demonstrated to me in the many beautiful emails after recording the "Messages in a Bottle." Thank you all! The infusion of love into this Balsamic Moon phase is astounding. Hearts have been fortified and are now ready to unify.
Today, we aim to go beyond ourselves in trust. We understand that a bigger picture is unfolding. We hold the line -- hold the space -- at a key time of the emerging Second Renaissance. We take a higher view today.
The "Wings Around the World" meditation is below. Join in anytime after the New Moon in your time zone - you do not need to do it at the exact time of the New Moon. It's a "wave" and does not follow our notions of time and space.
