This is the first new moon for Raven In a World Tree–one of many beginnings. We’ve decided to work with tarot and oracle cards for our new moon intentions, and are eager to share our experience.
Many meditations are complicated to remember, or require you to record them to get any benefit. Each month we will provide a simple meditation in a basic format that will allow you to meditate–simply–on a topic.
Each moon cycle, from new moon to new moon, is a good way to work on intentions and projects that benefit from seasonal attunement or being part of a year-long spiritual practice instead of just being another tick on a to-do list.
It is so nice that we have now passed Yule and are on the way to Imbolc. The days grow a bit longer each day, and at Imbolc we will be half-way to Spring! This transition is a nice one to remember as it gives us hope in what can be a very cold time of the year. Often we completely forget the joy of Yule by now.
The purpose of a monthly altar is to connect you to the energies of the season and help you make your spiritual life more tangible. Having an altar is a way to remind yourself of who and where you are. Having something visible, in front of you, make it easier to stop and reflect.
Life is a string of events and transitions. All of the ups and downs in life are transitions from one state of mind to another. We try to control these transitions in our lives but for some things we cannot. Life can be somewhat unpredictable, but of course that makes it more interesting.
