New Moon | 12 Aquarius 20’ | January 31, 2022
The game of life is a mental game. In the beginning was the Word. What is the message of the Word for contemporary people? Can we maintain health or a return to health in this sick world experience?
I remember anticipating a money shortage a week before rent was due. I had a dialog with the Universe which admonished me to keep the faith even though I needed more money than I thought I could make in a week. Even as I asked for relief, I planned for the shortage. I thought perhaps rearranging a few payments might help. However, I also knew that to plan for failure was a lack of faith and that to demonstrate faith, I could not make a “just in case” plan. Any just-in-case plan would be the demonstration of doubt.
“We have ways ye know not of,” the Universe said to me although in my head, filling in the gap seemed impossible. But what seemed an impossibility really signified that I did not know how it would or could be filled in. I knew not the ways. But the Universe did. I decided to have faith and not prepare for the possibility of an unanswered request.
And then it happened. Rent day approached and I already had more than enough. Just after rent was paid, I received so much more that I called it, “an embarrassment of riches.” If you prepare for failure, you are demonstrating faith in failure.
Don’t doubt. Believe. Let the universe show you that it will come through if you do not doubt that it will.
New Moon conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. Stick the landing, as they say in gymnastics when the gymnast lands with almost no wobble.“Be impeccable with your word” as Don Miguel Ruiz says in The Four Agreements: “Through the word you express your creative power. It is through the word that you manifest everything. Regardless of what language you speak, your intent manifests through the word.”
Have unwavering faith. Discover that you do indeed create your own reality according to how you call it. Make the correlation between your word and the outcome and make adjustments as necessary. Then make new and better plans. Practice overcoming and notice that you experience overcoming.
The New Moon conjuncts Saturn and squares Uranus. New Moon is in mental, scientific, technical, meditative sign Aquarius. Uranus is in earth. Aquarius squares Taurus. Universal thought squares personal esteem. Mind squares matter. Aquarius is both collective and individual. It all comes down to one. Stop waiting on the world to change. You are what matters. You are all that matters, you and your co-creativity with All.
In this new Moon chart, Chiron in Aries squares Mars, Vesta and Venus in Capricorn. I think of Aries square Capricorn as me against the world, or the individual challenging status quo or external blocks. Chiron in Aries challenges you to have faith in yourself as architect and author. Chiron square Mars can denote acting “as if” that which you desired was already yours. If your request goes unanswered notice if you had more doubt than faith. The next time, you will practice having more faith than doubt.
Florence Scovell Shinn says, “True prayer means preparation. Having made your demands on the Universal Supply for any good thing, act immediately as if you expected to receive it. Show active faith, thereby impressing the subconscious mind with expectancy.” In my story above, active faith was to leave my automatic payments as they were instead of rearranging them to avoid potential overdraft fees just in case my prayers were not answered. Think of something that you can do to show active faith.
“We know now that words and thoughts are a tremendous vibratory force, ever molding man’s body and affairs,” says Florence Scovel Shin. A woman asked Florence to lunch with her to keep up her courage that the money she needed in a few days would come. When Florence joined her at the restaurant, she told the woman. “This is no time to economize. Order an expensive luncheon, act as if you have already received the three thousand dollars.” 'All things whatsoever ye ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.' The woman received the exact sum, under the wire, from a cousin who visited her unexpectedly. This was not being reckless. This was an act of faith.
