04/04/19 Dark Moon conjunct Sun in the 1st House
Today’s Dark Moon is 3° into the first house, Aries, ruled by Mars, and conjunct to the Sun at 14°. The first house addresses the early aspects of our life and offers opportunity for spiritual and emotional re-birth.This is a powerful and aggressive dark moon in Aries, a perfect celestial moment for identifying, cleansing, clearing and releasing our unconscious emotions of fear, irrational anger, guilt and shame that haunt us, create self sabotage and generally block our paths keeping us from our true self and true purpose. It’s the unconscious baggage we carry, put upon us by others early in our life, perhaps in utero, certainly in early childhood, reaching back into past lives.
As the mind has a difficult time releasing emotions, the body releases them with ease and grace.
Perform a Dark Moon meditation by setting your intention to release your . Unconscious emotional baggage. Implement the Zazen technique of emptying your mind completely. Do this in Child Pose. Hold, stretch, repeat until you feel a sense of calm and freedom throughout your body. Trust your Self. Journal the experience directly afterwards. You have much to reflect on.
