Following the moon phases helps me put my ideas into perspective. Another chance to try again or try something new. Checking in with myself - my inner goddess - is she ok? I am ok. It took a scramble but I was able to put the hens in their coop - they put up a nice fight. I hope they learn to do it by themselves when the next new moon comes around. I have faith.
A new moon allows me to let go of thoughts of what I haven't done and instead reminds me to look forward to what I am going to do. Setting intentions is a sacred act, just as it is noticing our goddess selves. Both take energy and time, but not much time - you just have to allow it.

My intention for this new moon is to read the tower of books that I have intended to read for months - I am going to read right here in this spot after our morning hours in the sunshine. I also intend on waking up at five in the morning which means I better get to bed. I have other intentions but I can't tell you - kind of like not sharing wishes. But I can tell you that I am looking forward to establishing our summer routine - what are you looking forward to?
Happy New Moon! May you be very kind to yourself.
