New moons bring us the cosmic energies where we can consolidate all our contemplation, wishes, and wants from the previous 15 days and then once the first sliver of the moon shows up- then we can initiate new plans. This way, we are working in tune with nature!
The moon wanes from the previous full moon to the new moon and all along we should be working on various things that we want to let go- things that are not good for us. Things, people, relationships, and situations that are not working out for us. We need to identify such toxic and detrimental issues and situations, so that we can address them and as much as possible eliminate them from our life, so that we can enhance our physical, material and spiritual wellbeing.
As someone who wants to live more in-tune with nature and benefit from the cosmic cycles, it is best to utilize these lunar phase-cycles. After all, our entire human physiology and psychology is totally governed by moon’s phases and we know how moon also impacts the weather and other environmental scenarios.
This way, we can start afresh once the moon starts to build itself with the new moon, which is when the first sliver of the moon is visible.
Note: If you are familiar with the Panchang (Indian Vedic almanac), then you can look up the date and time for pratipada to start initiating new plans into action.
Then over the coming fifteen days, we can start working on our vision, intension and plans to bring new positive and beneficial situations into our life and then this phase will culminate with the upcoming full moon.
This way, by aligning ourselves with the lunar phases, we are able to live and work more in-sync with the natural rhythms of the cosmic energy!
The next point that comes up is- okay, so the above is true for all lunar cycles then what is so special about this coming one? Well, there are two key reasons why the new moon of April 22, 2020 is very powerful.
In numerology, 4 is a very powerful number and the number 22 is a master number (called the Master Architect) and here on April 22, 2020; we have a triple power of the 4 number- April month, which is 4 and also the day number 22, which reduces to 4 and then finally the year 2020, which has the doubles of 2 and 0s and is reduced to a single digit of 4.
Plus, today we will also be experiencing strong meteor showers. This will lend lots of more power and intensity to the already powerful super new moon!
At some deep level you will notice that this day marks the laying down of foundation for our life (going forward). Ofcourse, on the exact day, you may experience enhanced anxiety or nervousness- along with intermittent thoughts of fear and panic-response… but as you work thru them, you will find that the decisions you make, the actions you take have far-reaching and profound impact on your life… they will truly be life-defining!!
On a larger more global scale, we know that these last several weeks of lockdown, economic uncertainty and social isolation has forced people and societies to re-evaluate what truly matters in our life!!
At some deep level, people have been forced to re-evaluate what really matters to them- what is truly important to them and ultimately what brings them happiness!!
Coming so close with a medical threat, have made people appreciate the fragility of our life. Because of this, now more than ever, people are questioning their long-held beliefs, their thoughts about faith and so on… basically questioning everything for its validity and relevance to their own life and well-being.
This is not limited to only their vocation and relationships, but also larger societal structures such as the communities they affiliate with, the organizations they support, the political parties they vote for and even the educational institutions they have believed, hold the key to their bright futures- people are starting to question it all… and since it is individuals that form communities and societies, we will find that people raise up several crucial points!
You will find that people are contemplating and questioning and making changes as the need be- in their own journey. Some of this could be simple and only impact that individual or close family members and other steps could impact a greater group. Some of these changes could be calm, peaceful discussions and then some others could have unsettling and unpleasant repercussions in the near term.
But finally, once the dust settles and humanity has evolved into their own better version… and we look back, we will find that today’s super new moon was when we as individuals and humanity as a whole, laid the foundation of a new earth.
We are being showered by these cosmic energies and a new way of life is bound to be the final outcome- do we traverse this path consciously- by evolving ourselves or will life (and circumstances) drag us into this new way of living, that will be our individual choice to make.
This super new moon, we need to welcome this path of ascension… to our spiritual renaissance (for us as individuals and for humanity as a whole).
