Good morning, dear blog readers, and a Happy Sunday and Day of the Sun to you!
Today is a very powerful day. The Sun has been in Gemini (Sign of Communication) for approximately half-an-hour, and the Moon shall enter Gemini tonight, at approximately 7:05PM (the New Moon in Gemini shall be at 7:47PM tonight, too).
New Moons are excellent for beginning anything: a new business venture, a romantic relationship, an empowering habit. However, in some Magickal Tradtions, the New Moon is not in effect until one sees the barest glimmer of the Waxing Maiden Goddess’ Crescent Smile.
So, to cover all the bases, I recommend that you make two lists, and here is how you do it:
THE ELIMINATION LIST: Make a list of what you want to eliminate from your life, both the tangible and intangible. In the Numerology of the Sacred Tarot, Five (5) is the Number of Change, so we shall list five items. Here is an example:
1. A bag of old clothes
2. poverty consciousness
4. Five pounds of excess weight
5. The chair I no longer use
THE MANIFESTATION LIST: On this list, you write down what you wish to manifest in your life, again, tangible, as well as intangible. For example:
1. Greater Persistence Power
2. A new and regular client
3. A new chair for my livingroom
4. Increased physical Energy for mundane tasks
5. A $5.00 off coupon for my local supermarket
At the bottom of the Elimination List, write down “I NOW SURRENDER AND RELEASE ALL THAT NO LONGER SERVES MY NEEDS. I NO LONGER LIVE IN FEAR, AND I LET GO AND TRUST.” On the bottom of the Manifestation List write at the bottom “MAY THIS OR BETTER NOW BE MADE MANIFEST IN MY LIFE. To learn more about Elimination and Manifestation Lists, check out any one of Catherine Ponder’s books.
Incidentally, you can also make a third list, your Gratitude List. Here is an example:
1. The Moon
2. Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice Cream
3. My personal Psychic Advisor, Roger Pratt
4. My three beautiful cats
5. My deep and rich connection to the Divine
Although you can make Elimination and Manifestation Lists at any time, I find they are especially powerful on New Moons. Here is a small list (compiled from Llewelleyn’s 2012 Daily Planetary Guide) for the New Moons for the rest of 2012:
Tuesday, June 19
Thursday, July 19
Friday, August 17
Saturday, September 15
Monday, October 15 (and yes, youmustplay Duran Duran’s “New Moon on Monday” before you make your lists!)
Tuesday, November 13
Thursday, December 13
Finally, trust that there is something beautiful, powerful and Sacred in declaring “No,” be it spoken or written, thought or declared in action. When you say “No” to another person manipulating you; when you say “No more” to living inside of a negative, disempowering belief; when you say “Not any more” to a habit that, at best, limits your success and, at worse, causes you pain, then that is when you begin to move forward. That is when so much is given unto you and opened up for you. And that is when the Magick happens. Thank you.
