Today at 7:07 PM we have the new moon in Aquarius rising up on the horizon. The reason we decided to go with a new moon vs full moon series is the fresh slate and self-reflection that the new moon provides. It symbolizes the turn, the movement from waning to waxing. And so we will will create intentions to allow us to go from waning to waxing each month. Each month, a simple resolution to improve ourselves and the lives of others around us. We wax together.
Onto this month and our theme - the root chakra. Our root system, our security and grounding. Our most base major chakra, disruption in our roots manifest as insecurities, groundless, anxiousness. To start our new year on a grounded note, we are going focus on becoming more stable and secure with ourselves. Much like a tree, the deeper we our roots, the harder it is to shake us. And things have been shifting a lot lately, our collective future is ever more and more uncertain. Groundlessness is usually caused by overwhelming activity, moving, and other major life events. We could use this time to dig deep, to replant and hold our ground.
So the first week of our cycle is very simple - set an intention. How can you become more grounded in your life? Let's start small - make a ritual for idleness/rest. How can you make space in your day to do very little? Maybe's a quiet cup of coffee in the morning or a new meditation practice. Commit a small period of time every day to unplug, to relax, pick your level of activity that you will find grounding. Maybe's there music involved, maybe it's a walk. But make it a ritual you enjoy so you will come back to it. WRITE IT DOWN. We are starting with a bodily, tangible intention this month to ease us into living a more intentional life. Because in order to enact great change, we must first start with ourselves.
Once you have your intention, close your session out with our first guided meditation - perfect for soothing and grounding at the end of the week. Very beginner friendly.
Much love for you and this new moon,
Sara & Kyle
