New moons tend to make us want to plant new seeds and start afresh. But we are essentially working blind, however, without the illumination of the Sun’s wisdom. With a new moon, we are working 100% on our instincts so any decisions made at this time will be from habitual drives and infantile cravings which may not be in our best interests.

New Moon August 2019

At the new moon we should listen to our body. The more we tune into our guts, the more we can tell the difference between a wounded ancestor who is crying out for attention and a genuine gut-feeling that is one’s trusted intuition.

Otherwise, discernment is needed, because the guidance of the Sun (the light of truth) is missing at the new Moon and one may easily be hoodwinked. A new moon can work powerful manifestation magic because the Moon is furthest from the earth and this frees the imagination from material limits. Thought-seeds planted at the New Moon will grow, so be careful what you wish for!

In the YouTube video, after the New Moon low-down (10 mins) I talk about the fake Biblical myth of Lilith as Adam’s 1st wife and why I have deleted most of my Lilith posts and why I have ditched my Black Moon Lilith book in favour of a broader look at the Dark Goddess archetype.

New Moon Virgo Decan 1 Tarot Card

The tarot card associated with this decan is the 8 of pentacles. This is a card of commitment and craftsmanship. Karmically this will be a life where one pays a lot of attention to detail and completing tasks. Education and scholarships are important and it is about giving something back. In this life, however, the native must learn:

“you may be working hard to build a secure future for you and your partner or family. Make sure you remember to go home regularly and make some time for fun and social activities. The type of person you are leaves you exposed and vulnerable to becoming a workaholic. If you let this happen, then it may very well destroy your lovely relationship. You must work hard at striking the right balance. (This life) you can have both you know!” ~ teachmetarot.

New Moon August Healing Crystal ~ Amandine Garnet

Almandine Garnet’s healing energy cultivates a sense of security, safety and abundance. [2] It helps in bereavement. [1] It is supportive in taking time for oneself, bringing deep love, and aids in integrating truth with self. It opens the higher mind and initiates charity and compassion. [3][4]

Almandine Garnet can help arouse the energies of the kundalini, the profound spiritual power said to lie at the base of the spine. Once stimulated, those energies are kept more grounded by Almandine’s steady, slow vibrations. [6]

It is a stone of physical love and the relationship between loving partners, supporting each other’s needs and desires. [6]  As a Strengthener crystal, Almandine Garnet increases the powers of resistance. It aids insight and helps achieve one’s ideas and goals. [5]

Psychic Protection

Almandine is a stone of psychic protection. Its relatively dense energies keep one strongly connected to the body, and it is more difficult for negative energies or entities to attach themselves. [6] It can assist in accessing past-life memories from ancient civilizations and in clearing karmic patterns. [6] Almandine protects against emotional vampires, manipulators and evil spirits. Anyone engaged in spirit rescue should wear it. [1]
