Nature's Alchemy

When peaceful cities are blessed 
with myriad sweet floral scents...

When healthy forests are filled 
with balsamic coniferous perfumes...

When farms are enveloped with the earthy 
aroma of healthy soil and robust crops...

When homes are infused with temple essences 
that bring joy and tranquility...

We will understand why the ancients taught
that plants were gifts from heaven.

New Moon in Sagittarius - November 22, 2014

The quality of Sagittarius, at its potential, evokes a sense of joyfulness and even exuberance. The New Moon in the lunar cycle symbolizes fresh new starts. With the New Moon in Sagittarius at 0 degrees on November 22nd, 2014, there is that same energy weaving through life experiences. The search for meaning may be strong under this new moon. The New Moon in Sagittarius prompts each of us to enjoy the adventure that is unfolding now.

The Sun and Moon unite in the fire sign of Sagittarius under this New Moon, the aim is to be conscious participants to take action to expand consciousness, joy, meaning and purpose in our lives. We have the desire to embrace diversity of life. There are many paths, ways and perspectives in life. To honor one another is to embrace diversity.

The Sun, Moon and Venus are all in this happy-go-lucky sign, Sagittarius. This suggests a fiery passion towards integrating one’s philosophy into daily experiences. It promotes self-discovery and stretching one’s understanding into new and higher dimensions of reality.

It is possible under this New Moon in Sagittarius to want to share our perspectives and truth in relationship of all kinds. Speaking your truth may be done with grace, love and respect. It does not have to be dominating or heavy-handed unless you make it so. Speaking one’s truth helps each remain aligned in integrity with the Divine. It is a lightness and freedom that helps us rise even higher.

Feeling into the New Moon in Sagittarius, what is in our lives and feel gratitude for each person, animal and thing. The vibration of gratitude is an acknowledgement of the goodness inherent in life. Here each remains in abundance consciousness rather than lack consciousness.

The theme of exploration and adventure fills up the New Moon in Sagittarius. There may be a feeling of restlessness and eagerness to embark on a new journey of some kind, big or small. What small action can be taken to let this energy start to ripple outwards?

People may certainly feel animated or wildly optimistic and even over the moon about the surprises or sudden gift(s) that appears. The New Moon in Sagittarius helps each to attune to one’s true nature as joy – no matter if it is a good day or bad day. Joyfulness is a state of consciousness, it is who you are as Soul.

During this New Moon in Sagittarius, here are two example intentions: “I AM Joy”  – “I AM Abundant.”

Quotes of the day... 11/21/14

If we do not push ourselves enough, 
we do not grow, 
but if we push ourselves too much,
we regress. 
What is enough will change, 
depending on where we are 
and what we are doing. 
In that sense, the present moment is 
always some kind of beginning.
     ~ Sakyong 

Healthy, strong individuals 
seek self expansion…
     ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Its backbone is stronger than bitterness.
