Moontime Dreaming

new-moon

In ancient times it was the custom during the new moon for women to step away from their duties as wife and mother to gather together in sacred circle. It was a time of nurturance for the women who were in daily service to their families and their community. More importantly the dark of the moon is a powerful dream time.

Woman is the Creatrix, she who dreams creation into being. It is the innate nature of women to connect with the moon. Even her bodily cycles flow with the moon, shedding the old lining of the womb with every new moon in preparation for the seeding of new birth, new dreams. 

Therefore women would gather together in sacred circle, dream together and share their dreams. As each women brings her own unique gifts to the circle, all of their dreams were woven together to offer wisdom and guidance to the tribe to continue growing and thriving during the upcoming month.

From the most ancient of times, women were honored for this role in the community. It was the men who put these dreams into action, building and providing for the community. But without the dreams their actions would become disjointed and unproductive, rather than flowing with the organic energies and cycles of nature. Together, the dreamers and the builders were able to create anew and thrive.

We have strayed so far away from the nature of these traditions. It is the rare individual that even bothers to gaze up at the moon, let alone commune with her energies. With the advent of birth control women’s cycles are no longer in synch with the moon. Lives have become so busy women no longer gather together. There is no sharing of dreams, personal or otherwise. Our communities are built and governed through the logic of the mind. Dreams have been relegated to hold little if any importance.

In a few days the planet will be experiencing a solar eclipse, which is when the moon passes in front of the sun creating a shadow upon the sun. I’ve always called this the kissing of the sun and the moon, a sweet joining of the masculine and feminine. This particular eclipse takes place in the astrological sign of Pisces, which is the last sign of the zodiac, the alpha omega point. The point between the death of the old year and the birthing of a new year when the sun passes into Aries a fire sign of action. Pisces is a water sign, a feminine sign, the most potent time of the year for dreaming as we draw the old year to a close in preparation for birthing a whole new dream for the upcoming year.

I am always pulled by the new moon to set time aside, free of the rest of the world, to commune with her, to meditate with her, to dream with her. With this particular new moon not only am I pulled to do so, I feel compelled to do so!!!

This past year has been one of chaos and disruption for humanity. It is through my meditation and dreamtime that I have learned how to create my own reality free of these disruptions. My dreams have become the guiding force in my life, the flow of ease and grace that so many are seeking.

2016 was a year of completion, a 9 year in numerology. 2017 began a whole new cycle. Although many consider January as the beginning of the new year, our current gregorian calendar has thrown us out of sync with nature. In reality, the new year begins when the sun moves from Pisces into Aries with the March Equinox. Therefore this new moon is the last of the 9 year cycle before we initiate a new 9 year cycle.

What that means for us is that we get to birth a whole new dream for the next 9 year cycle. You get to birth a whole new dream for yourself with your own unique gifts and carry that out into your community. You get to create anew.

Whether you are male or female, you dream. You may not remember your dreams or they may not make sense to you because you’ve not paid them any attention. Perhaps its time to look upward. Perhaps its time to set aside the world that’s asunder for a few moments as you commune with the moon. Ask her to enter your dreamtime with her wisdom and guidance so freely given. She is here to birth a new world through your dreams. That is her role. Perhaps you’d like to call her forth as your co-creative partner.

This is a very potent new moon for you personally and for all of humanity. Take a few moments to look up, away from your daily distractions. As the sun kisses the moon during this solar eclipse there is a sweet co-creation taking place to birth anew. Allow your dreams to come into reality with the feminine energies of the moon activated by the masculine energies of the sun.

There are very few tribal women sitting in Moon Time ceremony anymore. However, the moon is unceasingly delivering your dreams to you awaiting your attention. Dream on BeLoveds, new worlds await.

  • The Four Agreements Open or Close
    the-four-agreements

    1. Be Impeccable with Your Word

    Speak with integrity.  Say only what you mean.  Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others.  Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

    Impeccable means “without sin” and a sin is something you do or believe that goes against yourself.  It means not speaking against yourself, to yourself or to others.  It means not rejecting yourself.  To be impeccable means to take responsibility for yourself, to not participate in “the blame game.”
