Over the coming days, the Moon will rise later each day. By the time it reaches the New Moon stage, it will rise at around dawn and set at around dusk, making it visible only during the daytime. It’s under this Moon that you will have the opportunity to let go of all grudges and release all anger.
Tonight’s Moon brings strength to decision-making thoughts. Any decisions that you make today, are important decisions and need to be made carefully rather than hastily. Why do we rush and push all of the time? There are many potential reasons why we sometimes move too quickly and make hasty decisions without thinking: 1) Impatience, which is rooted in fear, and 2) Stress & Anxiety from our circumstances. When faced with a difficult decision, people often close their eyes for a moment to focus. That’s not just a theatrical flourish, it turns out — closing your eyes may have a real, positive effect on decision making. Before making a decision, pause and reflect by looking at an image of the natural world. Your decision is then less likely to be impulsive. Engage in activities that will calm you down. Calming activities vary person to person, but might include listening to guided meditations, calming music, or doing deep breathing exercises. Sometimes you have to make a choice. Other times, though, you don’t have to choose — and it’s possible that no choice may be the wisest choice of all.
