8th June 2013: New Moon in Gemini

Listening to the Deeper Truth

Today’s New Moon marks a shift from identification with others through common interests, world views or values, to finding our place in a widely diverse world which contains every opposite and extreme you can possibly imagine! It’s not a shift we can make overnight and sometimes it’s far easier to do than others, but at the time of this New Moon we have an opportunity to focus our energy and attention upon the whole wide world in all its glorious diversity and paradox, truly knowing it as a reflection of our own inner complexity.

This is an impersonal but contact-oriented Moon. That in itself can sound paradoxical, but the contact this Moon desires is that of one open mind to another, not the contact of one headstrong ego to another with a subsequent battle to clarify who’s right and who’s wrong. This is contact which recognises we all have thoughts, feelings, beliefs and opinions which make perfect sense to us at the time we have them, no matter how they may appear to anyone else. Everyone has their story and their understanding of what life’s about. We can all justify our views on the things that matter to us, even when those views are in direct opposition to someone else who can just as readily justify their position.

So what does this Moon want of us? She wants us to stop, just for a moment, and remember that each of us lives within our own story, our own drama, out of which we fashion our lives and until we can bring a compassionate awareness to that fact we may miss the clues in someone else’s words or behaviour that say ‘Underneath all this anger I’m in pain or fear’; ‘Behind this arrogance I’m terrified’; ‘I don’t listen because I fear what you may have to say’. It can be a real challenge to listen in this way, to experience the deeper truth beneath someone’s words, especially when those very words arouse anger, objection or bitterness within us. We are all of us trapped within a labyrinth of thoughts, feelings and associations from the past, but the more we can step outside of them even just for a moment, to listen with pure awareness to the words of another, the more likely we are as a global community to eventually come together in a state of peace and understanding.

This New Moon seeks that very peace. She sees the barriers to it and offers a helping hand to those who want to step over or break them apart rather than stop at them and hurl stones across. She encourages us now, in the theatre of our everyday lives as much as on the world stage, to listen to the truth behind the words, both our own and other peoples’, remembering that suffering is born of suffering and peace is born of peace. And if each of us can, just for a moment, bring a compassionate awareness to an exchange which would previously have been one of conflict and discord, seeds of peace are planted which can, in due course, grow into a collective harvest of healing and unity.

Happy New Moon everyone!

"...to listen with pure awareness to the words of another, the more likely we are as a global community to eventually come together in a state of peace and understanding." Beautiful. I can honestly say I'm not sure I've ever done this. I will work on it now though. TY, Sarah.

"...not a shift we can make overnight" (but this New Moon is helping). I'm so grateful & so thankful both that this moon is helping & the Universe is loving & patient w/me.

"...suffering is born of suffering and peace is born of peace." We all want peace, not suffering; but, how hard it is to stop fighting for what I believe to be right! LOL. Funny thing is, the more I ascend & change, the more my views change & I realize maybe I wasn't "right." (Duality) LOL. TY for the gentle, truthful, loving reminder, Sarah.
Much love to all of us as we're on this journey together!!! :smitten:

Here is another layer of New Moon
"The focus is on you and what you are opening to bring forth into your life and the world. These events are about Conscious Creation and what is coming from the New Field through the individual – what wants to be propelled into creation and life, and then opening pathways to bring it forth."

New for 2013

"During the New Moon this year primarily the focus is about Creator within Creation, this will likely be focused on areas where there still exist blockages to full expression by the individual." -Courtesy of Lightsmith.

thank you Sarah-that was a beautiful, insightful message and most certainly what I am experiencing at this time. It feels like a breaking away of those old programmes that held me trapped thanks to seemingly ignorant comments from those around me. These became tools for me to look deeper at why I so easily took offense in the past, and to explore my own perspectives and of those around me-what programmes they too are running.It is a real compassion bringer. Thanks again!

I like that-I view it as seeing new possibilities for ourselves. In allowing for them- we create new neural pathways in the brain thereby physically manifesting a new reality. This conscious creation relies on a lot of self-belief.By trusting that if we can believe in new possibilities for ourselves our futures are limitless! Much love to you

Yes, I can very much resonate with what you say here...those old programmes that get triggered in interaction with other people.... That's where a lot of my challenges arise for sure!

Hi Cyndy. Thanks for sharing that. This bit really struck a chord with me:

A wonderful reminder. Thank you.xx

Yes! Absolutely! Thank you for saying that. And it seems to me that those pathways can be forged much quicker these days than before. It's like our brains are now ripe for rewiring! :)
