Definition of the Crescent Moon Phase by Laura from August 2013 - The Crescent Moon phase of the lunar cycle begins Saturday (for us in June 2017 that means today - Tuesday). Whereas the New Moon phase is where we seed an intention, at the Crescent Moon phase the seed pops open and begins its life. It takes a tremendous amount of energy for the seed to do this because it is going against its previous state of being (a seed) to a living state of being (a seedling). In life, Crescent phase challenges us. Struggles ensue. Will the seed move beyond the challenges to continue on and grow or will it give up? Many dreams, wishes, intentions, and ideas end during the Crescent phase because we have a tendency to give up when faced with difficulties (growing pains).
Note that I did not spend a lot of time on the new Moon Sabian Symbol - An arctic explorer leads a reindeer through icy canyons from last Friday, June 23rd, the first day of this New Moon cycle.The symbol speaks to the need to plow through or soldier on in the face of adversity. Look at the elements you are facing personally or we are facing collectively and see where you need to be in the struggle. So, at the crescent phase begins, where are you in this struggle. Have you taken the reigns and gotten on the trail, or are you waiting for something? Are you the type that wants to follow the leader, or will you strike out on your own?
Sun: Two Faeries (nature spirits) dancing on a moonlit night. An interesting symbol comes today, as it is the crescent phase and likely to be no moonlight to speak of. But more that the symbol embodies the idea of enjoying the company of like-minded people in fun and frolic. Intuition and imagination are heightened during this time. Your emotional and spiritual side will be speaking to you and through you. It is a time you can let go of the rational and embrace spiritual.
Earth: A veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a God. Messages are coming. And they come from authority. It is deep in meaning and deep in affect, but can it be believed? Watch for signs to see if you can intuit the source and whether it is trustworthy. The energy can potentially be for good of all, or just lead astray.
What are the messages we are hearing now, and how deep are they. Yesterday’s amusing story about CNN retracting a story and 3 reporters “resigning” for not following the journalistic standards of CNN. The Lamestream news, which pretty much includes almost everyone out there, has made it its mission to confuse and obfuscate everything. And we ask why.
I personally began to understand about opinion and yellow journalism when I travelled to England back in the mid 1980’s. I grew up reading The LA Times and the Whittier Daily News each morning and evening. My dad read them, so I did too. And I tended to be the kind of kid that believed what I was reading. It was the NEWS. And the LA TIMES was considered a prestigious and “conservative” paper. What did I know. But in London, life is different. They had 4-6 different papers, who openly admit their biases. The Labor paper, the Tory paper. Funny thing is that they all would publish a picture or 2 of women’s nude breasts or some member of parliament who tripped on the sidewalk. And then spin it towards their own agenda du jour. I found I could not believe anything I read.
Coming home, I greeted my trusted LA Times with a hug. But from then on, I was forever changed. Everything I read seemed laced with the same kind of BS I saw in London. How could that be? We are the US. We believe in the power of a free press. It is in the Constitution. This amazing trip I took changed me in unexpected ways. Specifically to put on my glasses, like the ones in the movie They Live! To see the world for what it is with open eyes.
CNN, at that time, was in its infancy, a mere 4 years old on a cable system with few subscribers. In 30 years, they grew up and took on the mantle of respectability. And after 37 years are finally being called for yellow journalism due to their discretions being so obvious that the establishment could no longer credibly not see it.
So who do you listen to?
