As the Earth rotates daily about its axis, we see the Sun rising and setting and generally sweeping a circle in the sky around us. This daily rhythm is powerful, and many of us are naturally harmonized with it. For instance, we sleep when the Sun appears below the Earth, and we are most active when the Sun is high up in the sky. And many of us have also experienced what it is to be out of harmony with the solar cycle. Whenever we travel to a destination in a different time zone, we suffer from jet lag – our bodily rhythm is out of sync with the local solar rhythm. It usually takes several days to acclimate to the new rhythm, and we can certainly use JSJ flows to ease and facilitate the adjustment.
The Moon Around the Sky
But what about the Moon? Does the Moon’s monthly path through the skies affect us, and how harmonized with its rhythm are we?
Well, the Moon cycle is there, and we know it. Animals tend to be sensitive to it. My dog, for instance, is excessively restless on the nights when the Moon is full. There is also the correlation between the Moon’s cycle and the female reproductive functions.
I have been closely following the Moon for two years in relation to my daily thoughts, moods, and activities. I know that when the Moon enters the sign of my Sun, I become over-energized and that I need to be cautious not to overwork. When I procrastinate with a task, I console myself that I would eventually complete it, if not earlier, at least by the time the Moon sweeps through my Rising sign. It has worked like a charm for two years so far. 🙂
An Invitation to an Experiment
I invite you now to join me in a month-long journey to harmonize ourselves with the Moon cycle. The Moon takes about 28-29 days to circle about the Earth. Divided into twelve equal parts, that gives us about two days and a half to focus on one of the twelve-fold Function Energy aspects. For the next month, every two to three days, I will post an article reviewing the current position of the Moon, to what aspect of the daily Function Energy it corresponds, and how to harmonize that aspect.
If you are interested in joining me, sit back, relax, and wait for my next post. You don’t need to do anything but harmonize one of the twelve aspects of the daily Function Energy (organ flows) for a couple of days.
Mark Your Calendar
We will start our journey on November 19, 2021 when the Moon enters the area of Gemini – Stomach Function Energy.
On that day, the Moon will also cross the ecliptic while in opposition to our Sun. As a consequence, the Earth’s shadow will partially eclipse the Moon. We will have the second and last lunar eclipse for 2021. Lunar eclipses are a good time for release – of burdens, mental blocks, emotional hang-ups, and the like. So, we’ll take that time to set a powerful intent for the release of the obstacles to our peace and wellbeing.
The Sun and the Moon
The Sun is the symbol of our individuality. When in harmony with the solar energies, we are faithful to our inner star and express its qualities with authenticity.
The Moon, on the other hand, is more about reflection, imagination, and intuition. It is about innate knowing that we get through a non-linear and non-rational manner. If we call the Sun Reason, then the Moon is Intuition. In harmony with the Moon cycle, we are more in tune with our intuition and imagination. We are also in control of our emotions rather than allowing them to control us.
