We all look to the heavens, if only for a moment, most evenings, and we notice the beautiful, ever-changing moon glowing a silver hue above our heads. The moon is the brightest object in the sky, next to the sun and since ancient times, wise-ones have known that when we work with her many changes, we can bring spiritual changes for the better into our lives.
The key is to recognise just two aspects of the moon.. the new moon and the full moon. Every new moon brings opportunities to bring change, balance and heal our lives, and most importantly, live a full and vibrant life. She is often called Grandmother because her wisdom can help us find ours. 
The New Moon: On the day of the new moon, the energy in the world opens up to receive new seeds. For centuries farmers and gardeners have used the New Moon cycles for planting. We can use this same potent energy to empower our dreams and goals. So use a new moon POWER DAY to write (in a special moon journal, if possible!) ten wishes or goals you would like to see in your life.
The May new moon occurs in Gemini, therefore in order to embrace this power we should make wishes in the area ruled by this sign. Gemini holds dominion over: curiosity * social skills * mental agility * communications * learning and teaching awareness of options * brothers and sisters * schools * formal education * listening and tact!
Sample wishes might be...
"I easily find myself filled with happy, healthy curiosity about life and other people ** All fear of social interaction is totally lifed from me * I release and heal all feelings of insecurity * My mind easily grasps the ideas that others are sharing with me * I easily find myself deeply listening to others and communicating in a way that creates deep mutual understanding * I find myself learning *** easily * 
This moon falls on the 25th or 24th, depending on where you live. However, the wishes can be written down three days or so before this date.. however, the first eight hours after the new moon are the most powerful!
The next full moon is in June.. I will be writing more about this in the next article.. so keep checking back!
