Surrender to Love

Sandra "Sunny" Mosley Zodiac Arts Moon Phase Journal

Virgo lunation cycle (September 9 – October 8)

Balsamic phase (October 5-8)

The Balsamic phase is often called the Dark Moon. It is both the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. This is the phase of release and purification. To engage fully with others during the Libra lunation cycle, pride and the ideal of perfection must be let go.  Have faith that the form of your new routines is right and perfect for you at this time.

This particular Balsamic phase coincides with Venus stationing retrograde in the intense sign of Scorpio. An excellent time to begin examining the source of your values.

Along with the anticipation of new beginnings is the anxiety that comes with the unknown. Use sound to support you physically and emotionally during these few days. Relax to the sound of Tibetan or crystal bowls, or other high vibration sounds, like chimes, bells, or gongs. This is also an excellent time to listen to the voice within.
