The Emerging Power of the Moon: Intent and Allowing

This Full Moon (August 29, 2015 at 11:36 a.m. PDT at 6 Pisces/Virgo) is powerful! It is the first of 3 Supermoons and it is the prelude to a powerful Solar Eclipse with the next New Moon, giving us ample opportunity to let go, release, complete with old ways of being and/or thinking.

“Remember that Intent is not a cause and effect, stimulus-response mechanism. Intent sets up a field of probability in a world of Infinite Possibility. Whatever resonates with your Intent attracts to you if you Allow it. Create the Intent, put everything in order for something to happen, and then Allow for what is unpredictable to emerge.” ~ Dianne Collins from the book, “Do You QuantumThink:  New Thinking That Will Rock Your World.”

Tomorrow is the Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces and in a spectacular turn of events, both my astrology and Human Design became clear to me today. Interestingly, it is the full moon that is stimulating my awareness rather than the new moon.  It’s perfect though, as this Full Moon is at 6 Pisces right on top of my natal Chiron in the 8th House of Transformation opposing my Pluto/Moon conjunction in the 2nd House in Virgo.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with Chiron, it is the planet that we associate with the Wounded Healer archetype.  Since a Full Moon brings things to completion, I feel like my Piscean wound is healed and it’s time to share my wisdom about this with the world. If you’re not as familiar with Astrology, these aspects in my own chart are being echoed in yours as well – maybe not exactly – but certainly with the same potential to create openings and “aha’s.”

My transformation began this morning with a pencil!  Seriously!  I was reading Dianne Collin’s book, “Do You QuantumThink” in preparation for a coaching client.  We were getting ready to discuss the chapter on Allowing so I was re-reading the chapter.  I was hitting on some juicy information and I thought, “I wish I had a mechanical pencil.  I’m going to call my husband and have him buy me one tonight on the way home from work.”  I really wanted to underline and make notes in the margin of the book, but sometimes my highlighters bleed through the page and I didn’t want that to happen.  I don’t like regular pencils – the scratching sound they make on paper drives me crazy! But, mechanical pencils don’t make that sound ( I know what you’re thinking….OCD much? )  I got up to get a pen, and right there in my pen cup was a mechanical pencil!  With lead and an eraser even!  That’s when the “Aha” about Intent & Allowing really sunk in for me.

In that moment, I was living in full confidence that a mechanical pencil was in my future!  I wasn’t questioning the why, the how, the when; in fact I wasn’t even looking for one anymore.  I was just in certainty that it was coming.  I assumed that my husband (once I asked him, and at this point I hadn’t talked to him yet) would be the vehicle of the pencil’s manifestation, but I was open to how ever it showed up.  From that openness, the pencil magically appeared not more than 3 feet from where I was sitting.  Now – I know what you’re thinking… a pencil is easy.  But, you would be missing the point entirely.  The point is that we often miss the most obvious of magical ways things could come to us because we’re so focused on how we think it should come, or when it should come, or why it should come only in the way we think it should come.  Sound familiar?  What I realized in that moment the pencil appeared is that I was living in a field of Intent, rather than living from an intention, which created the space for magic to happen.

This led me to the next realization . . .

Every month I teach classes on the New Moon as it is a time of setting intentions and connecting with the potential of creating something new, a new direction, a new way of being, a new relationship, etc.  We chart the New Moon’s potential through the lens of the personal astrology chart.  Lately, as I was preparing these classes, I kept thinking that there had to be something more, something I was missing in the transmitting of this vital information.  The personal chart, while important in determining the “where” in the persons life new beginnings can happen, was not answering the question, “how do I create and manifest with Intent?”  Further, was the realization that I was personally looking for a deeper resonance with how we create in this reality of ours, and the relative importance of the Moon in Manifesting via Intent & Allowing.  I guess my subconscious mind has been working on this one for me and the pencil experience was just the catalyst for a new way of being, and now, a new way of teaching/facilitating the classes on the New Moon is dawning. Mastering what Dianne Collins calls “distinctions” of which Intent and Allowing are two of the 21+1 of them, will be a part of how I move forward in teaching this class.  It’s time to give the Moon her full power in connecting us to our inner wisdom!  You will be hearing more from me on this subject in the very near future.

Now on to the Full Moon . . .

This Full Moon (August 29, 2015 at 11:36 a.m. PDT at 6 Pisces/Virgo) is powerful!  It is the first of 3 Supermoons and it is the prelude to a powerful Solar Eclipse with the next New Moon, giving us ample opportunity to let go, release, complete with old ways of being and/or thinking.  If you have felt like your life has not been working out, then this full moon has the juice to help you let go of old subconscious “stuff” and to open yourself to what could be.  The Sun will be in Virgo conjunct Jupiter – already a potent combination that allows for a new cycle of growth and expansion, and the Moon in Pisces is conjunct Neptune Retrograde, a very spiritual and intuitive combination.  The Moon/Neptune gives us an “in” to the spiritual/soul dimension.  I believe that we can really connect then with the possibility of getting past our “old paradigm thinking” and engage with the higher Truth our Souls hold space for us to connect with.  The energy here is exciting, hopeful, enthusiastic, courageous and fills me with the awe-inspiring potential of a “New Way of Thinking That Will Rock the World!”  (Dianne Collins, from the title of her book, “Do You QuantumThink:  New Thinking That Will Rock Your World.”)

Take away message from all of this, “You’ve got what you need right in front of you, just reach out and take it!” ~ from a conversation with a friend

Have a Great Full Moon 🙂
