I'm so excited to respond to several emails and go on an investigation
to explore why recently there has been a consciousness in light of the new moon. It seems to have a hideous, dark energy to it. Relationship spats are being highlighted, paranormal activity seems trickster and there is a heavy emotional wave of collective depression.
And maybe it's not just the past five months. Maybe it's been always but let me share some things I've unconvered through medical personnel I'm fortunate enough to be peers with. There's also been a significant trend through some reading I've done.
According to my friend with the hospital cred, the new moon has a gravitational pull stronger than the full moon. Gravity when at a very strong peak effects the fluid on our spinal chord. And you know, we are made up of over 90% of this amazing fluid called water. The moon has been said to rule the tides in the ocean and tides within us abide. The new moon is half lit, exposing of course the dark side.
So when the dark side of the the moon prevails there seems to be a spike in emotional discord, suicide and over dose in the world of hospitals and emergency crews.
Spiritually and historically there are theologies based on all phases of the moon. There is no doubt in my mind and that there are intangible changes that happen in our mind, body and spirit throughout the phases. This is a great article for more about spirituality and the moons effects here .
I can see why in most light working Pagan or Neo pagan circles or covens if you will, counteracting the dark side with ritual for new beginning or blessing is so. But according to the above article from the Spiritual Science Research Foundation, On new moon days, the Raja-Tama (Dark energies or people who work primarily with dark energies spread ghosts, demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) Those engaged in black occult rituals and predominantly tāmasik people are strongly influenced and receive black energy for their activities. As it is a time conducive for negative works. The Raja-Tama from the moon affects the mind, the incidence of Raja-Tama tendencies like running away, suicide or possession by ghosts is highest on new moon. Especially during the night, as the otherwise naturally available purification by the Absolute Cosmic Fire Principle through the Sun being absent, new moon night is a golden opportunity for the ghosts to cause distress to man.
So I'm going to politely suggest that the dark side of the moon is as such and we need to be very aware of how to appropriate it's energies, those working with it's energies and the things they conjur accordingly.
Amp up your protection physically, spiritually and emotionally.
Physically wear the appropriate talismans, charms or holy relics associated with your belief system to guard your person.
Spiritually put up a wall or a bubble around you with the intention of deflecting anything that is not of the light.
Emotionally knowing that if someone or something is out of alignment with your super good mood that it's not yours and staying positive in your mind with affirmations, music and meditation.
How do you stay positive sane and safe regardless of moon phase? Would you care to share? Please feel free to leave a comment below or as always you can message me of Facebook here or send me an email.
As it stands, question everything.
Nothing is ever what it seems.
