Did you make your treasure map yesterday? If not, don’t worry, there’s still time! While the best time to make New Moon wishes is during the first 8 hours of the New Moon, Jan Spiller states that the first 48 hours work. And, if you don’t have time for cutting and gluing, you can simply write down your wishes. In fact, you should write down your wishes each and every New Moon (once a month). Today, I’ll be discussing the ways in which to make your wishing the most productive.
Jan Spiller, in her book New Moon Astrology: The Secret of Astrological Timing to Make All Your Dreams Come True, describes how she experimented with the most effective ways to wish on the New Moon, and as a result, devised the following “rules of the road”:
DO write down your wish list within 8 eight hours following the exact time of the New Moon, whenever possible.
Do write your wishes down by hand each month.
DO NOT write more than ten wishes.
Do write more than one wish.
Do date and keep your wish lists.
Do trust yourself in writing down those wishes that truly make you feel harmonious on the exact day of the New Moon.
Do trust your own process. The Universe wants you to be happy. If a wish doesn’t come true immediately, keep repeating it, or watch to see what unexpected benefit comes in its place.
Do not make wishes for other people. It won’t work.
Do make wishes shifting YOUR approach to other people whom you want to influence.
Do combine the visual power of a Treasure Map during the New Moon in Aries each year.
Do believe in and pursue your dreams! Trust your ability to go through the tests of character that open the way to experiencing your own inner happiness!
Do believe in yourself. Keep repeating wishes on your list until they being coming true.
Do make more than one wish around an area that is especially important or difficult for you.
Do move with the new energy as it emerges.
Do no let yourself stay in old, habitual responses!
Do trust your inner knowing when writing down wishes. Does the way the wish is worded leave you feeling harmonious?
Do not write down wishes that you don’t feel completely comfortable with, even if they make sense logically.
Do keep wishes separate from one another [in other words, don’t combine more than one wish do get more than 10], otherwise they won’t come true.
Tomorrow: how to find the 3-5 weeks a year when you can make wishes EVERY day; plus, some example wishes.
Neptune in Pisces
Neptune will enter Pisces on April 4/5 (depending on your time zone), go back into Aquarius at the beginning of August, and return to Pisces in early February 2012, where it will stay until 2026. All astrological signs have a planetary “ruler”, and Pisces is ruled by Neptune, so this will be an especially powerful transit. Neptune was last in Pisces from 1847-1862.
If you read my Uranus in Aries post, you’ll notice Neptune stays in a sign even longer than Uranus does. As I wrote in the Uranus post, faster moving planets bring about change that can be compared to changes in the weather. The effects of slower moving planets (Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) are more comparable to climate change. Astrologers will be talking more about Neptune in Pisces next year, when it moves into the sign to stay for a while. But, in the meantime, I wanted to share this video by Steven Forrest (whose books I quote frequently on this site):
