While not a transcript of our current video by any means,
I’ve included the notes below if you’d prefer to read or for referencing the information later!

Actual Time of Celestial Event: Tuesday May 11th, 2021 @ 1:00 pm MDT
Sun’s position:           26 degrees Aries (The Ram)
Moon’s position:        26 degrees Aries (The Ram)

Here we sit within the paradox ~ a New Moon, customarily considered inward, introspective dark, quiet, … but seated in the constellation of the Ram: fiery Aries emerging fresh from the void out of which all things come with its impatience, its get up and go, its urgency to move, to become!

And as I sat with the Stars, contemplating this paradox…inward new moon, outward emergent Aries…  to this –  they say, “nothing ever changes – the middle away of moderation is always our goal.”

As the world becomes exceedingly complex, breaking down into smaller and smaller factions and pieces, your spiritual work continues to simplify and resonate with the middle way -finding center, finding the bridge between extremes.

Here in this New Moon, we marry opposites of emergence and quietude, of clear and perhaps intense vision that runs into “reality”… (unexpected reality that ask for adjustment and change.)

Our path forward is, on the one hand, to attune ourselves as vessel, as through-point for the Aries impulse – allowing something new into the world through us… and on the other hand, we attune to the natural restraint of New Moon wisdom… patience… uncertainty… curiosity.

Our path is the Middle Path…  And so, before streaming headlong into that action which Aries craves, and rushing the birth of what is coming through us, we can work also with incubation, gestation and the truth that the “next cycle” has its foundational roots in the current or  previous cycle;

For me, this Spring’s emergence is sitting upon Winter’s depth.

How about you?

What work, what awareness, what uncovering transpired over winter’s time – or even further – for you? What is clearing away for the new to emerge? What remains that is a foundation for what is to come?

Strengthen your connection to your primary tenants and values – perhaps they are compassion integrity tolerance peace… be clear and define for yourself: what is the middle way? What is the path of balance? Use this new Moon to stand upon it and to allow forward that which in balance, in harmony births through you.
