Oh, Moon Mother, Light of the night,
Stars, who are your company dance with you.
Teach us the mystery of your dance,
That we may be in harmony with you,
Learn to give away and renew.

Oh, Moon Mother your loving gaze falls
Softly on the sacred mountains.
Oh, Moon Mother, your shining gaze falls
Softly on the sacred oceans.

Sacred ones dance in the light of the night,
Dancing in harmony with you.
Ocean waves dance in the light of the night,
Dancing in harmony with you.
Teaching us to give away and renew.

Oh, Moon Mother your loving gaze falls
Softly on the sacred mountains.
Oh, Moon Mother, your shining gaze falls
Softly on the sacred oceans.

That we may be in harmony with you,

New Moon

Today is the New Moon in Gemini at 2:40pm EDT.
The new moon is the dark moon. The time of each month when Sister Moon hides her face from us. She turns away and looks inward. She goes into her cave.
Before our modern times of electricity and artificial light, the moon’s cycles were more noticeable. During the full moon, one could see at night without fire. But during the new moon, all was dark. Our circadian rhythms were more grounded by the lights in our sky. At the time of the dark moon, the new moon, all of the women around the world would menstruate, and bleed together as one. Recently women have been rediscovering the joys of the Red Tent, and nurturing ourselves during our menses by taking time out to rest and be with other women. Many modern interpretations of the segregation of women on their menses in the past, is that it was a degrading experience. Yet, this may not have been the case, as during the time of their bleeding, many women are happy to get away and have time for themselves.

Whether you bleed on the new moon or the full moon, or even if you do not bleed at all, you can benefit by taking some time to turn inwards during the dark moon. Although we might not notice sister moon’s brightness as much if we live in cities or areas with lots of electric light, she still affects our oceans, our tides, and our selves. We are made up of water after all, and she tugs on our inner tides, and on our world.

Every dark moon, it is time to wipe the slate clean. To start fresh for the new lunar cycle. Let go of the past cycle, whether it was full of achievements or disappointments, leave it behind you. Dust your shoulder off.


This cleansing can be empowered by taking a bath or a shower with the intention of cleansing the last lunar cycle, and anything else you that is ready to be released. You don’t need the fanciest crystals or candles, all you need is your intention. As you see the water flowing down the drain, let it go.

Once we let go of the past cycle, maybe we can see the ways in which it has drained us. This time of turning inwards is a time to nurture and refill yourself. What does this for you? Drawing, being with friends, watching a favorite movie, cooking, enjoying a good meal, going for a hike, or reading a book are some examples. Whatever nourishes you, take some time to do exactly that during the dark moon.

The really tricky thing, is not to fill up your blank slate again too quickly or mindlessly. Thus, we need to take some time out and go inwards. Feel where you are at. Don’t rush. Just feel. Enjoy the quiet of the dark moon, the blackness of your blank slate.

Some helpful tips for getting grounded at the new moon are:
- use black out shades to make your sleeping area really dark
- don’t drink caffeine
- take some time to turn off your phone
- do some yoga and movement, especially dancing, sun salutations, forward bends, and child’s pose
- enjoy giving yourself a foot massage
- stand barefoot on the earth


Get quiet. Get dark. How deep do you dare to go into your own inner cave? Can you climb down, and around, and in? Down and around and in… Spiraling inwards until you make it to the safe space in your cave. Where there are pools of fresh water, glowing crystals, your sacred talismans, the place where your inner goddess and wise woman dwells. What does she have to say to you today? You are safe here. You are free.. to bathe in the waters, to cry, to dance, to laugh, to be truly yourself. Stay there awhile, and when you are ready to climb back out of your cave, do it as carefully and as gradually as you went in. Climbing up, around, and out.


When you are ready to pick up that piece of chalk and start to scribble, it is important to ask ourselves ~ what do we really want to create in this next lunar cycle? Is there an intention welling up within us? To make a new art project, to try and be more patient with our children, to eat more salad? It could be anything! It could be something that you can’t even put into words, but it is still important to take the time to feel it, honor it.
Use your incredible power and be a conscious creator of your reality. This is your life after all. You can do what you want with it.

Without #ecology, there is no #economy." - @JoelSartore of #PhotoArk
“Time and time again we hear the same, tired arguments pitting economics against species, such as the claim that jobs created by cutting down forests outweigh the life forms within it. In fact, the opposite is true. Without ecology, there is no economy…When we save species, we’re actually saving ourselves. We need pollinating insects to produce crops. We need healthy forests to regulate rainfall and keep our air and water clean. And there is no time to lose.
