“The word, which we’ve all heard, is dharma. It means acting as if to hold the world together…Dharmic action is acting as if your own choices serve to make the world a better place specifically by preserving its delicate, intricate threads of relationship, kindness, healthy dependency and mutual sharing.” Eric Francis
“When we seek connection, we restore the world to wholeness. Our seemingly separate lives become meaningful as we discover how truly necessary we are to each other.” Margaret Wheatley
New Moons and especially New Moon Eclipses like the one tomorrow Saturday, August 11, offer a good opportunity to cross the threshold into an evolved level of wholeness. This is because in Jungian astrology, the Sun represents the inner masculine and the Moon, the inner feminine. By bringing these two into a more harmonious alignment personal evolution can occur.
It is a good time to focus on who you are aspiring to become. And what you need to leave behind to do that- thoughts, feelings, assumptions and old behaviors.
One time on a Solar Eclipse I called a shamanic institute out west and the person who answered the phone said,” Oh, no one is here now. They all just rushed up to the canyon to do a ritual at the time of the eclipse.” Many shamanic traditions in setting intentions and doing ritual at these times also include their wishes for a healthy future for the planet. This bodes well now as well.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “Brilliant sunshine just after a shower.”
