Magic Moon Practice: a Force of Influence

There are 2 unique days each month, one during the full moon and one during the new moon, these are called Magic Moon days.

To better understand:

Think of the Earth as a physical, conscious body. It is alive and producing all the things it needs and desires to flourish and continue living.  Everything that grows on this physical conscious body is implemented into seasons so that all things work in unison to produce the best possible outcomes.  Different things ripen at different times and the time comes for other things to pass away and become compose for more things to come; all things working in a superior harmony to compliment the full potential of planet life.

Think of the Moon as an ethereal, subconscious body. It is potent with the knowledge of everything needed and desired by the physical conscious body. From here all things necessary to produce those needs and desires are organized, regulated, and implemented to manifest the best possible outcomes consistent with and conducive to all the planet’s needs and desires.

For example, the conscious earth produces healing herbs because the subconscious moon knows the desire for it to be healthy; and sets the conditions for growth of various herbs that must be implemented for this outcome to be true, then regulates it within the organization of all the other things to be harmoniously and effortlessly manifested in due time.

As Above So Below

With allegoric understanding of the above, you are the Earth and everything in your life represents the conscious; your mind is the Moon and everything controlled by it is the subconscious. With this wisdom, contemplate the benefit of having an opportunity to force new influences on your subconscious when the moon is highly vulnerable.  This unique period of time produces a penetrable energy we can take advantage of ethereally.  The energy is real and the penetration of our thoughts into this energy happens whether we control which thoughts penetrate or not…and often why our lives are not conducive with our desires.  This is the force behind the Law of Attraction—focus on what you want all the time, you are bound to influence the 2 unique periods of penetrable energy that open each cycle (month).

Preparing for the Magic Moon Day.

To prepare for the magic Moon day whether it be the setting or the rising moon, you should empty the body as much as possible by fasting or eating very little 24 hours before the magic day. You should also drink plenty of water the day prior (food clogs our thinking process, water helps our thoughts become more fluid).

You can find the hour of the moon set or moonrise by clicking here: TimeandDate.com

  • In the menu bar go to: Sun & Moon
  • Click on Moon calculator
  • Put in your location
  • Scroll down the chart to find the day that only has a moon rise or a moon set to see the hour of occurrence.

Moon Set Meditation (the full Moon – decreasing)

This meditation must be started at or any time after the moon set hour of the Magic Moon Day until the moon rise of the next day to complete your meditation.

In a quiet space bring yourself to quiet Mind by focusing on your breath and letting go of all distracting thoughts. Once your mind is quiet begin visualizing the things that you want “out” of your life to be leaving. For example if you are in a bad relationship with someone, picture them leaving or you packing your bags and going out the door; in illness, if it is a tumor, picture it growing smaller and smaller until it disappears. Anything that you want to go away, visualize it leaving you and stay with this visualization until you get an “urge” of satisfaction that it is done. It is suggested that you visualize one thing at a time until you are satisfied with its leaving before you start another one. In this way you can do as many as you like so long as you do not rush through any of them.

Moonrise Meditation (the New Moon – increasing)

This meditation must be started at or any time after the moon rise hour of the Magic Moon Day until the moon set of the next day.

Same as previous, in your quiet place, bring yourself to Quiet Mind. Begin visualizing the things you want coming into your life. For example, if you want more money, you can visualize your bank statement growing with increasing deposit amounts, or you can visualize receiving multiple checks in the mail and opening them to find wonderfully large amounts payable to you. If you want a new car or home, picture yourself driving that car or living in that home you want; i.e. go grocery shopping in your new car, come back and cook up a good meal in the beautiful kitchen or your new home.

The key to Magic visualization is not just seeing yourself doing things as if you are an actor in a play, but fluidly causing the unfolding of these things from your mental point of view; you have to feel the texture of the carpet, bear the weight of the object you hold, form the words you speak, hear the words of others entering your ears, feel the emotion as if it were real, etc.

A Day Without a Moon Set : Magic Moon Days

There is one day a month without a moonrise and one day a month without a moon set.

There is one day during the waxing moon when there is only a moonrise.

There is one day during the waning moon when there is only a moon set.

There is no ‘moonrise only’ during a waning moon and no ‘moon set only’ during a waxing moon.

These are the magic moon days. During these times the “expel”(decrease) and “excel” (increase) energies are at their heights. Whatever rituals or meditations practiced during these days are heightened and perpetuated for the complete cycle of the moon; 29.53 days.

New Moon

It is important to understand that when the moon is growing, on the day of a “moonrise only” is the day to set your intention/focus/ritual only on things that you want increased in your reality. For example, if you are mistakenly focusing on what you don’t want, you will generate more of what you don’t want for the next 29 days so be careful! Your focus must be on the things you intend to have. Please note it cannot be on wanting more because you will only find that “want” increasing; i.e. if you want more money because you feel you do not have enough, more things will happen to make you need more of the money you want–but if you visualize having everything you want, those items will begin to show up.

The opposite is true for the waning moon on the day of the “moon set only.” This is the day to focus on all the things you want out of your life. Your banish rituals and meditations will be enhanced on this day, therefore it is important that you do not focus on those things you want more of.

The moonrise/moon set only days usually occur 4 to 8 days after the new/full moons.

Why this happens (scientifically)

The objects that are important in this analysis are the moon (obviously), the sun, and the earth. When the moon is at the same RA (right ascension) as the sun we have a new moon and from our point of view on earth we don’t see any illuminated part of the moon. RA is the coordinate system in the sky that corresponds to east/west. Declination is the measure of the distance of an object from the equator, so it measures distance north/south.

If the new moon happens to be at the same RA and the same declination as the sun, we have a solar eclipse.

When the moon’s RA is 12 hours different from the sun’s RA, we have a full moon. The earth time from new moon to new moon is 29.53 days (29 days, 12 hours, 43 minutes). This time takes into account the apparent movement of the sun over that time.

These numbers get modified because the moon’s orbit is not circular, it’s elliptical, and keen-eyed observers of the moon will be able to see the difference between the moon at apogee (farthest from earth) and the moon at perigee (closest to earth). This is in part why some solar eclipses are annular and some are total.

We know enough to figure out why there’s no moonrise on one day per lunar cycle and why there’s no moon set on one day per lunar cycle. Because the moon makes one trip around the earth (relative to the sun) in 29.53 days, we can say that the average angular distance traveled per cycle is 360 (re the sun) 29.53 which equals 12.2 degrees. (Strictly speaking there’s another one-degree due to the movement of the earth on its orbit, but we’re close enough.) Since the earth rotates 15 degrees per hour (360/24) we can easily ask how much later, per day, are lunar events (moonrise and moon set). The answer is (12.2/15) * 60 = 48.8 clock minutes. This is certainly in the “ballpark.” Some references say the difference is about 49 minutes per day and others say it’s about 50 minutes per day. To keep it easy, let’s go with a 49 minute per day difference.

If the moon set on any particular day is more than 49 minutes before midnight, the next moon set will occur on the next day. However, if the moon set on our first day of interest is less than 49 minutes before midnight, there will be no moon set on the next day; the next moon set will be just after midnight on the third day.

This is what a professional astronomer would call a back-of-the-envelope calculation. It doesn’t take into account a lot of details that would be important if an exact determination of the timing of this phenomenon is needed. I can think of several considerations that were left out; angle of the moon to the horizon, apogee and perigee of the moon, latitude of the observer, and probably a few other things that don’t occur to me.

How does this fit with real data? To see, I analyzed data from the Naval Observatory moonrise / moon set chart for all of 2012. Based on this calculation I’d expect that the time between successive moon sets is 24 hours 48 minutes and 46 seconds. I looked at the data for 2012 for my hometown (Houston, TX) and found that the average time between moon sets for over 300 moon sets was 24 hours + 50.4 minutes. I’m in the right ballpark. The actual difference in moon set time on any given day can vary quite a bit. At my location the minimum difference in 2012 is 35 minutes and the maximum is 68 minutes.

If you look at a moonrise / moon set calendar you’ll see that the day with no moon set is near the first quarter and the day of no moonrise is near the last quarter. If you think about the geometry of this, it makes sense.

To see when you’ll have a day without a moon set or a moonrise get a moonrise chart here:

http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical-applications/data-services/rs-one-year-us

Enter the year, specify that the Type of Table; is moonrise/moonset, enter your location, and click [compute table] and you’ll get a table of all moonrise and moon set events for your location. For locations outside the US, you can enter the latitude and longitude of the location. Note that the table does not take into account daylight saving time. So, if you observe daylight saving time, or the equivalent, be sure to compensate for that.

2012 SOLAR FLARE ERUPTIONS

After remaining quiet from 2005 to 2010, the sun began waking up last year, spouting off numerous powerful flares and CMEs.
Most experts think such outbursts will continue over the next year or so. Solar activity waxes and wanes on an 11-year cycle, and scientists expect the current one, known as Solar Cycle 24, will peak in 2013.

Early Thursday (July 19), a gigantic sunspot unleashed an intense solar flare though the solar storm shouldn’t pose any serious problems to us here on Earth.
The flare erupted from a sunspot known as AR 1520 at 1:13 a.m. EDT (0513 GMT) Thursday and peaked about 45 minutes later. The outburst qualifies as an M7.7-class solar flare, meaning it’s a bit weaker than the sun’s most powerful blast, X-class flares.

The sun storm also produced a coronal mass ejection (CME), a huge eruption of solar plasma that can streak through space at speeds of 3 million mph (5 million kph) or more. CMEs that hit Earth can wreak havoc, spawning geomagnetic storms that can disrupt GPS signals, radio communications and power grids.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, a spacecraft that constantly watches the sun in different wavelengths of light, recorded a video of the solar flare as it appeared to erupt from the edge of the sun.
Modeling efforts suggest Thursday’s CME is not headed our way, NASA researchers said. The flare also generated a minor radiation storm around Earth, but it doesn’t appear to be dangerous to astronauts or satellites.
“The S1 (minor) Solar Radiation Storm persists, but should steadily decline through the day,” scientists with the Space Weather Prediction Center, which is operated by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, wrote in an update today (July 20).

The outburst was not the first for AR 1520, which researchers say could be 186,000 miles (300,000 kilometers) long. Last week, it shot out an X1.4 flare, the strongest of the summer to that point but not the most powerful flare of the year. That distinction goes to an X5.4 behemoth that erupted in March.

Stonehenge Summer Soltice Meditation

The new moon begins at 11: 03 AM June 19, 2012  — Just hours before the 2012 Summer Soltice:  Another spectacular cosmic event for the year of change.

The Summer Solstice is a time of prosperity and community. It’s a time of relationships and harmony. Through time the solstices and equinoxes have been celebrated with festivities and spiritual rituals. They show how we are part of nature and its rhythms, e.g., with the increase in the amount of daylight in the summer and spring we feel more energetic because the pineal gland receives more light.

This month’s New Moon is a another rare and powerful New Moon. This is the second New Moon in the sign of Gemini. The first New Moon in the sign of Gemini happened last month of May. New moons signal the beginning of new …emotional cycle providing us with the opportunity to reset our goals and intentions. Gemini’s energy is all about the intellect and communication. Having two New Moons in the sign of Gemini means that we need to pay attention and really listen to the message being given to us. This New Moon is all about The Law Of Attraction. This spiritual law emphasizes how powerful our thoughts are. Everything is made up of energy. Our words, thoughts and feelings are all made up of energy. If we want to manifest positive things in our lives we need to immediately change our negative words, thus changing our thoughts and our thoughts and our feelings at the same time.

Meditation:

Find a place that is quiet and makes you feel at peace.
It may be indoors or outdoors.

Loosen clothing – remove shoes and eye glasses.

Sit down or lie down.
Find a position that is comfortable for you.

Relax and close your eyes.

Take two slow deep breaths
inhale through your nose
hold the breath as is comfortable for you
exhale slowly through your mouth.

Visualize yourself standing alone in the center of Stonehenge.

You look for magnetic north to align yourself with the energies.

You body easily turns in that direction as if you are a magnet.

Feel the energies building.

Stonehenge becomes a circular clock
that begins to spin faster and faster.

As this clock spins around you are transported through time and space.

Suddenly you find yourself back to the time Stonehenge was built.

The builders of Stonehenge greet you.
What do they look like?

They ask you to joint them to discovery
that which your soul has come here to learn.

You join them in the center of the circle as the journey unfolds….

When you are ready to return to your present
timeline stand in the center of Stonehenge.

The circle begins to spin in the opposite direction
traveling you forward in time to the present day.
