When I re-arranged my Art Studio recently, I positioned myself at my workdesk, so I could look out onto tree tops and sky during the day, then have full sight of the Moon at night.
Knowing it has some kind of Pull on All of us
Finding myself Completely Mystified by its Light and MagnetismTonight marks a new moon in Virgo leading us to the Full moon on Sept 23rd which is the Autumn Equinox.
It is also the start of Rosh Hashana – the Jewish New Year
The New Moon (and up until the moon is full) is a time to begin new things, to be spontaneous. Time for a New Start.
So over the next two weeks, I’m going to be thinking about what I’d like to invite into my world for the remainder of the year, reflecting on my vision board from January and preparing myself for the new season later this month.
Here I am with my 2010 Vision Board
So please join me to take a moment over the next few days to sit quietly, recognizing all the amazing experiences and memories we have formed over the summer and start afresh – whether it be a new project, new outlook, new morning ritual, to listen or to allow ourselves to let something or someone go. Now is the time for the next amazing step in our journey.
Think about what you would like to invite into your life over the next few months – you can even collect images to help identify and capture them if you are a visual person like me! So on this New Moon, I’m starting a new ritual to align myself and activities with the phases of the moon and I’ll be making a “dreamboard” to help me focus and listen more closely to natures rhythms.
I have had so many serendipitous moments when I’m balanced and listen to that universe, that I cant wait to see what presents itself. I’ll post mine around the time of the full moon (Sept 23), so if you’d like to join me, please do.
“All you long for will lie curled warm in your palm if you lay yourself open and surrender to the shape of things.” excerpt CV Trimmer 2006
This really spoke to me today as I watched my little boy board the bus to start his first day of full day kindergarten. Learning to let go is a little hard.
I follow the moon's progression, which reminds me to listen to Nature and the rhythm of Life more closely. The moon's presence affects us mere mortals more than we think!
I love the equinoxes and solstices, knowing endings are making room for new beginnings, and new opportunities.
Loved this post today, Louise!!
love this post
i always feel a shift as the seasons change and this time of year always speaks new beginnings to me x
you were smart to move so that you have a view of the moon!! 🙂
I love this! I love this new moon coming into fall which always feels like the time for my new beginnings. Feels like perfect timing just before Squam.
I am definitely going to do a dream/vision board to help me work out my next few months. You've inspired me to actually get on and do it!
Last week I had an artistic breakthrough that sent my mind into a whirlwind birthing an exciting concept…over the past few days, i've been reading about this new moon and am so excited to know that I am perfectly aligned to embrace all this new moon has to offer.
what a lovely blog and a lovely idea– creating a vision board. xoxo malia

thanks for the push.
You are sooo good Louise. I love your intentionality (is that a word?) and the rituals you use to launch yourself into life. Its all the kind of stuff that I LOVE and nurtures me. Oh and as for the moon…I have a love affair with that rock up there (keeps popping up in my mosaics too)!
I love your enthusiasm and zest for life and all things creative. It's so inspiring. Your studio and its scenes sound lovely. Happy creating and great things for the rest of 2010.
So nice to be in the company of a spirited artist who is in sync with the universe… Thanks for reminding me to manifest harder all of my deepest wishes and dreams… Thanks for shining your light with your beautiful smile. This post was truly inspiring! xo
