Today on the new moon, we at Create Awake set our intentions for the month.
It is a great practice that I leaned many moons ago and it keeps me connected to the natural cycles of the earth.
The new moon is a great time to plant seeds, start a new project and clarify what your heart has been calling fourth. Also I have seen that when I write down my desires on the new moon the miracles come effortlessly. I invite you today to read the info below from Astrologer Jan Spuller and Mystic Mama for more details on how and the best time to write down what you are envisioning.
Love, Light and an Overflow of Abundance
FROM: Jan SpullerBecause this New Moon is in the sign of PISCES, it’s a powerful time for new beginnings in feeling more loving and taking steps to release any self-destructive habits of addiction. Progress you may have wanted to happen in your life for a long time can begin easily manifesting through using the boost of this powerfully trusting New Moon. PISCES opens in us an awareness of using the strength of connecting with a Higher Power to help wishes in coming true.
For success, your wishes must be handwritten on paper and ten wishes maximum are allowed on each power day. The most potent time is the first 8 hours AFTER the exact time of the New Moon; within the first 48 hours will still work. For clear success, it’s best to avoid wishing during those hours when the Moon is Void of Course.
Therefore in FEBRUARY 2012, your most potent times for wishing are:
Tuesday, February 21: 5:35 pm – midnight
Wednesday, February 22: 12:01 am – 9:24 pm
Thursday, February 23: 9:48 pm – midnight
These times are in Eastern Standard Time and need to be converted to your local time zone.
Among other things, this New Moon stimulates the ability to more successfully navigate your life by understanding and forgiving the foibles of others and yourself, seeing that we are all doing the best we can, given our understanding and history.
Because the New Moon of February is in the sign of PISCES, it is the most potent New Moon of the year for wishing to surrender any self-destructive addictions: excessive drinking, drugs, smoking, counter-productive dietary choices. This time period is also highly charged and uniquely empowered to help release any self-sabotaging behaviors: procrastination, judging others or ourselves, the habit of criticizing or over-analyzing.
The energy of PISCES stimulates an opening for creating greater success in spiritual pursuits, such as meditation and stress-reducing exercises. This New Moon stimulates the capacity to view our lives with more love. When we forgive and cease to judge others, we save time and energy. Then the way opens for us to more easily create the personal successes we desire.
Your wishes can be about anything that is important to you to bring into your life. To make sure the New Year’s Resolutions you made for 2012 manifest, use the power of this second New Moon of the year. This can be a “booster shot” for perhaps already faltering New Year’s Resolutions.
FROM OUR FAVORITE: MYSTIC MAMA
Yay! New Moon is here again bringing us a new cycle in dreamy, mystical Pisces! Here is some gathered insight from some of the best readers of the stars so we can be tuned in to the new energy coming our way…First from the insightful Divine Harmony and her DivineHarmony.org Astrology Blog:
“The new moon that is occurring on tuesday the 21st at 2:35pm PST is really powerful and really positive! i am actually quite excited about it :) we have a new moon in the last sign of the zodiac- the sign of the mystic and the Unconscious. the astrological new year kicks off with the aries new moon- which will be next month. so this month we have the closing of the astrological year- replete with insights about the past and releasing of what no longer serves us.”“What makes this new moon so powerful though is it’s conjunction to neptune (pisces’ ruling planet), chiron (the wounded healer), asteroid goddess pallas athena (goddess of wisdom) and the royal fixed star fomalhaut (the start of alchemy associated with healing, mysticiam and archangel gabriel). the new beginnings supported with this new moon are wonderful for spirituality, healing, awareness, consciousness and wisdom. where this new moon falls in your natal chart shows where the Universe is supporting you to start a new chapter, perhaps even a new volume, in your life.”© Copyright 2012 Divine Harmony.

From Teri Parsley Starnes and her Stardance Astrology :“ Pisces is the urge to merge, the need to melt away differentiation, the impulse to lose oneself in the mystical stew of being…Possibilities abound as we enter the liminal time of Pisces. In astrology’s system, the year begins at the Vernal Equinox. Astrology’s year ends in Pisces with everyone swimming, merging, and losing the hard edges acquired over the previous year of life. We melt down, losing form, before we begin a new year of growth and manifestation…”© Copyright 2012 Teri Parsley Starnes. All Rights Reserved
A really great round-up from astrologer Molly Hall:“It’s a special time for letting go, not passively, but with full awake engagement. In the days before, enter a dialogue with the soul, and signal that you’re making clearing the space in every way. You might be compelled to clear the clutter, or wrap up loose ends.”“It’s possible to sense the presence of soul, and honor its messages (in dreams, epiphanies). Mercury in Pisces runs currents that tune us in to the mystical ways we’re always communicating — to each other and the pulse of life. Be alert to serendipity!”“Pisces is a sign of extremes, taking us to ecstatic mystical highs, or nightmarish lows. It’s a very impressionable time for all of us, with psychic boundaries thin and wispy. In these days of the New Moon and beyond, be wise about what you’re exposed to. Listen to music that uplifts your soul, or choose movies/shows that enchant or inspire. It makes a huge difference…” ”In closing, it’s a New Moon for daring to be as profound, compassionate, idealistic, etc, as you really are. A trine to Saturn (Libra) from Sun-Moon-Neptune is an invitation to find an alternative path, by giving form to your dreams. And to find release from karmic relationships, through forgiveness, and seeing from the other person’s view. The form and attitude of forgiveness takes place in the dark, within your own psyche.”“If you’re discouraged or even distressed by the seeming uptick of chaos, find a refuge at the New Moon. Ask for healing energies to wash and purify you in your sleep. If those around you are stressed or demoralized, resolve to live with greater heart, purpose and joy…”“To do all you can to stay faithful, in this super challenging time for us all. To be forgiving of yourself and others. To be clear about your boundaries. To speak what you know, and act on subtle intuition. To allow the healing to happen.”© Copyright 2012 Molly Hall:.

From astrologer Simone Butler from Mooncircles.com: “One way or another, we all struggle to fill our aching voids. A grande margarita or pint of dulce de leche ice cream helps blot out the emptiness of your job. A wild weekend with a stranger gets you past your loneliness—for a while. For some, addiction may be as simple as filling the emptiness by watching TV or talking on the phone.”“All addictions stem from the same root: feeling separate. Making the connection to our inner Source through prayer, meditation or spending time in nature reminds us that we are one with all that is.”“The Source is symbolized by Pisces and its ruler, Neptune. Connected to all things magical and mystical, but also delusional and destructive, Neptune is amplified since recently returning to its home sign of Pisces for the first time in 150 years…”“Success at navigating Neptune’s waters depends on your willingness to trust the Great Unknown. This may not be easy, even for water signs who are accustomed to going with the flow. Heady air signs, practical earth signs and action-oriented fire signs may be challenged as well. We will all need to learn how to be more compassionate toward self and others, and pay attention to our intuition. If you feel like you’re floating in the void, unclear of your direction, ask for dreams and hunches to guide you. Don’t allow your fears to spin out of control.”“Because the New Moon in Pisces conjuncts Chiron, the Wounded Healer, opportunities exist for healing core wounds. But the New Moon also sextiles expansive Jupiter in sensual Taurus, providing a much-needed anchor to Mother Earth and the body. Preparing the soil for your spring garden or going for a hike will help to ground you.”© Copyright 2012 Simone Butler. All Rights Reserved
And lastly an inspired Pisces New Moon message from Dana Gerhart fromMooncircles.com:“Pisces says that life’s too short and there’s important non-work to do. “Each day listen to your desires and follow them exclusively. That’s the wisdom of flow.” I’m suspicious: “How would anything get done?” His eyes grow wide and mirthful, as if to say “You’ll see when you finally try it!” I’d like to, for when I spend time with Pisces, my worries exhaust into a peaceful sigh, like petals releasing from a tired rose. At night Pisces tells me to sit in a dark room with a single candle for at least two hours. If I stay there long enough, I don’t know who I am anymore. Yet my heart grows as big as the world.“Let your heart likewise expand this cycle. Let your imagination run free. Business can take care of itself. The cherry trees are in bloom. You might be yearning for a little poetry or the delicious escape of a movie marathon. You may get lost in the sound of a symphony or the gentle touch of silk. Can you let yourself drift and dream? Soon enough the Equinox will be calling you to action. Next month brings the Warrior’s New Moon. Prepare now by first drawing closer to your soul…”“Of course, no matter how dreamy we might like our lives to be, there’s always some unpleasantness. Sure as there are fairies making everything right, there are complainers making everything wrong. How do we respond? Pisces can inspire our most saintly self—or our most victimized. When you’re unconscious of its gifts, Pisces will make you whine: “Poor me!” or “Why me?” Remember that unhappy dinner last night? Maybe the sesame chicken was too dry. Maybe the salad dressing was bottled instead of fresh. Or maybe your dinner date never showed up. Pisces only wants you to understand that everything was just perfect.”© Copyright 2012 Dana Gerhart.

"A river is only the surrendered heart of a million tiny beads of rain. A river yearns and is yearned for. A river reaches out and is reached out for. A river desires, and is desired in its turn."
Abdur Rahm, excerpt from “The Ocean Rests Not …”
Do you adore your self?
You are a divine being worthy of adoration.
You must start by adoring your self.
Then you will see that the whole world bows to you in adoration.

And the Create Awake Family
From Bitches to Queens- Chapter 2 excerpt
We would do a disservice to the entire community of women around the world if we didn’t touch upon the word Bitch and how it continues to define us. This word has been adopted as a term of empowerment in response to the perception that women in society are the weaker sex. The implication is that in order to succeed in a man’s world and feel good about ourselves we must act like men or become the Bitch.
Our beautiful feminine intuition, our heart centered process, our relationship focused approach, and our emotional sensitivity, have been deemed inferior and ignored for too long. The damaging effect of suppressing these qualities is seen all over the world as an imbalance in ourselves, in our bodies, in our relationships, in our communities, in our governments, and most importantly in our planet. The reaction to this suppression has been a feminist movement toward identification with the Bitch, as a heartless, controlling, strong and angry role model. One that you shouldn’t mess with. This is a role model that both of us have had to let go of. In our our twenties it served us. We were such Bitches, but that was the only way we knew how to take care of ourselves. It was through the Bitch that we attempted to fight the good fight to prove our worth.
When we of speak of a Queen there is no question of her worth. She was entitled from birth, as we all are. She is royalty, she is majestic, she is born in worth. The moment is now to embrace the gracefulness of the Queen in all her fierce, innate feminine, divine ways! It is time to have compassion for the Bitch we have been and some times still are.
Be still, be quiet and listen. Come closer and hear the best kept secret of all time.........The Queen is much stronger than the Bitch ever was. She is grounded and operates from inside herself.
She is not a reaction to her environment. SHE IS THE CREATOR.
