Dear Friends,

The New Moon in Virgo is Thursday, September 17 at 5:00AM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT)

The Equinox is Tuesday, September 22 at 7:31AM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT)

This New Moon in Virgo challenges us to get organized with our thoughts and intentions. It challenges us to confront our lethargy, addictions and internal ambivalence. It challenges us to focus on clear practical communication and to take responsibility for the details of our lives. We can no longer use the excuse of the external chaos of the unknown to indulge in avoidance, laziness, discouragement, and martyrdom. It is time to get ready for the slow but steady crawling out from under intense change and to use the energy for solid transformation as the momentum builds.

It is important to keep your eye on the lofty goals for the future but not to get lost in the illusion or fantasy of what is true right at the moment. Keep your tasks practical and grounded, and keep going, putting one foot in front of the other, no matter what. There is an element of perseverance to this time especially around projects you know to be important. As the influences may throw curve balls into your plans, continue practicing flexibility, resilience, gratitude and the ability to trust right timing and the right end result.

This is an important equinox as we ask ourselves, “what’s the plan?”. Instead of waiting for more clarity, work with what you have and set some practical intentions (always subject to change) for yourself. The most important lessons during this time are the ones that show you clearly what you do not want to dream up or manifest for yourself. Take an inventory of what has not worked for you in the past, what you are complete with in your life, and give it all over to the West with great gratitude for being part of your container up until now.

You may not have the whole picture of where you are headed however you can begin to organize your energy by focusing on what brings you joy right now in these times and go from there. Beware of the mental quagmire of thoughts, anxieties and worries that have you spinning in circles. You cannot manifest a good future from the place of “too many thinking”. The best way to use the Equinox is to practice gratitude, to focus on love and do something higher centered that gives you joy, preferably in nature. Bring in beauty as an element to feed your dreams. Take a little time to accomplish a small but practical task that you can be proud of.

Join Jose for a special Equinox Remote Shamanic Healing Session:  Tuesday, September 22 at 7PM MDT. More than just a healing, this session will include words of wisdom and a good opportunity to work with the Equinox energy for clearing, reset and empowerment.

Blessings,
Lena
