Tomorrow is the last day of September and the second new moon this moon and it's a Black Moon.
I love the legends of new moons. I love the possibilities of new beginnings, new energies and letting go of what needs to be let go.
Sometimes it is not the new we fear, but the letting go of the old and comfortable, the letting go of excess baggage. These past few months Rick and I have been on a mission to let go...of clutter, of things that are no longer useful. It helps to put into perspective that someone else needs it more than you do.
Letting go takes on a whole different meaning where I work. People are letting go of destructive bad habits, of people and relationships that are destroying them, of careers that are sucking the life out of them and addictions that are killing them. Many of them let go of a lifetime that no longer serves them. Today, was a difficult day for some of my students, they confronted things they had to let go and it was frightening for them.
Tears were shed, and spirits were broken, but you know that when everything is over many will rise like the Phoenix spreading their wings and embracing a new life. The new doesn't come until you have let go of the old.
Tomorrow starts the weekend, September will be gone and October will arrive. Enjoy and embrace the new moon, the new month and let go of what needs to be released.
