ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Cycles of the Moon and You

As you become more familiar with the cycles of the Moon, learn to notice what is happening in your life, your health, your relationships at different times during the ‘moonth.’ Does your appetite change? Do you feel more or less energy? Are you calmer, more frenzied, touchier?

The ancients knew how important the energy of the Moon is because they lived according to Nature’s cycles. They knew when to plant (New Moon) and when to harvest (Full Moon) but with the advent of the Industrial Revolution and electric lights we started to move away from the natural cycles and created artificial ones.

In our busy 21st Century lives we often forget to even look up at the sky. How often do you notice the Moon?

For the two weeks following a New Moon, pay attention to how you feel and track the Moon’s calendar. In the Possibilities Playshop we create Playbooks based on the cycles of the Moon so that we get used to journaling according to the Moon’s phases. It becomes easy to track patterns when they are tied to the cycles.

Focus on the New. Get ready to let go of the Old. Become a Moon Child!

In the coming ‘moonths’ we’ll explore a wide range of topics. Some times the MoonLetter will contain a channeled message of guidance from other realms. Other times I will write an article with practical guidance and tools for conscious living.

And there will be information about using the energies of the Moon Cycles to help you live that conscious life with elegance and grace.

Happy New Year! Thank you for being a part of RosemarySpace!

PS: We are approaching a Full Moon, tomorrow, Thursday, March 5 at 1:05 pm Eastern time. How are you feeling? We’ll be publishing the next MoonLetter shortly to fill you in on all the details of this moon.

ROSEMARY’S INSPIRATION: Happy Lunar New Year!

In China and other parts of Asia the Lunar New Year is celebrated for two weeks, from New Moon to Full Moon. We have a Full Moon coming up on Thursday, March 5, so until then we are still celebrating!

The New MoonLetter is here!

Hello, Dear Readers!

Yes, I’ve been away for a couple of months while husband, Richard, and I revamp our outreach. We published a MoonLetter on February 20 to celebrate the Lunar New Year and mark a new beginning. With that email we are now publishing an update on each New and Full Moon – so about two times each month. And for those of you who prefer to receive information from me in blog form I’ll be clipping pieces here from each issue.

So without further fanfare here are a few pieces from my first MoonLetter:

Greetings!

Welcome back to RosemarySpace where we have been retreating for awhile to tune in to new ways to serve you. This MoonLetter information will be published at the time of the New Moon and the Full Moon each ‘moonth’ to remind you to tune into the energies and to use them to support you in achieving your goals. This ‘moonth’s’ issue is focused on the Moon’s cycles and what that means. It is the start of the Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations. Celebrate something new in your life! (Like the new MoonLetter!) We welcome your comments always.

Moon Message

“At the time of the Lunar New Year, each individual is invited to create a vision for the coming year that encompasses new wishes, new desires, new dreams, new delights. It is a time to lay to rest the past, the ups and downs of the past 13 Moon Cycles, and allow everything to start afresh. Let go. Detach. Dissolve that which holds you back and look forward to your new creations. Happy New Year!”

Moon News

Happy Lunar New Year!!! The New Moon is ushering in the New Year according to the Chinese calendar and we are ready to move into the Wood Sheep year.

According to Feng Shui Grand Master Lillian Too, “The energies of this year of the wood sheep are very favourable in terms of business and other opportunities. It is important to begin to live in a state of greater awareness so that these opportunities don’t pass you by.”

This New Moon happened on Wednesday, February 18 at 6:47 pm Eastern Standard Timein the very last degree of the sign of Aquarius in the very last minute – 29 degrees 59 minutes. This is a powerful time for manifesting something new in your life, and this Lunar New Year gives you a fresh start for the next 13 Moon Cycles.

Three minutes after the New Moon was exact, the Sun and Moon were both in Pisces, moving us from consciousness of all humanity to a sense of interdepence with all – nature, plants and animals. We also look toward the spiritual aspects of situations and ourselves during the Sun’s time in Pisces. The Moon in Pisces invites us to connect deeply with our emotions.

What new dreams are you dreaming for yourself? What new ideas do you have for your life this year?Celebrate! Take advantage of new opportunities by committing to act in the direction of your dreams. You will be supported.

This New Moon is also a Super Moon when the Moon is closest to Earth and in alignment with the Sun and Earth. Its impact is enhanced when this is the case. Have you noticed that this week you are feeling a lot of energy? Or more drained than usual? I did an ‘electronics fast’ for a couple of days before the New Moon and it was exhilarating! Try it some time.

Get ready for the Full Moon which occurs on March 5 at 1:05 pm Eastern Time. The Full Moons are times to let go, to release the old.

You’ll be receiving another MoonLetter at the Full Moon! (But only if you subscribe.) We’ll also publish bits and pieces here on the blogs.

If you want to receive the MoonLetter each time it is published you can do that at TheScientificMystic.com When you subscribe you will also receive a meditation on the phases of the Moon channeled by me.

I hope you have been well while I’ve been “away”! 2015 is coming in with very different energy; enjoy!

ROSEMARY’S INSPIRATION: Take Stock

The video for today’s post not only has a message for you to consider it also announces that my husband, Richard, and I are taking some time to reflect. We are “taking stock” of many things during Solstice time, as the light here in the Northern Hemisphere dims and we retreat inward. With the Sun the MuseLetter and this blog will dim for a time.

My “Two-Minute” Video for this Week: Take Stock:

Have a wonderful holiday time!

ROSEMARY’S NEWS

ngc6670Happy Holidays! And what is your focus for this last month of 2014? Take stock – of your health, your relationships, your work/job/business/career, your family, your living environment. In the midst of the holiday festivities, ask yourself if you are feeling fulfilled by your choices in your life.

That is what Richard and I are doing this December. We are taking stock and you will benefit from this. My focus for 2015 is ‘Relationships’ and I am especially intent on deepening my connection with you, in deep gratitude for your being a part of RosemarySpace.

Thank you for joining with me on this journey. Whether we know each other intimately or you have never met me in person (and it is always fun to meet one of you after you have been reading these letters and posts for awhile!) I appreciate your presence and your energy. You contribute to RosemarySpace. I meditate and bless you. You are part of a community no matter where you live.

And I want to make sure that we serve YOU in 2015. So we are taking a ‘holiday hiatus’ from creating these MuseLetters and Blog Posts while we take stock.

Meanwhile, I will continue to see private clients during December (remember that the special offer for a Reading by Rosemary ends December 31! – reserve your spot with an email: rosemary@TheScientificMytsic.com and the Winter Solstice Possibilities Playshop is on December 13. Join us in Severna Park, Maryland for that FUN event and create your own Playbook for the coming New Moon to Full Moon cycles. Plan to take a break in the holiday activities for yourself on Saturday, December 13, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Learn more about the Playshop here: Possibilities Playshop

Are you ready for the longest night of the year, Winter Solstice? This signals the retreat cycle of the seasons and I invite you to plan some time to go inside and ‘take stock’ – do the inner work, slow down the to-do’s and focus on some ‘to-be’ time. Just as the seasons invite us to follow Nature in her rhythms, I invite you to follow your own biorhythms and take care of yourself this Winter.

There is a Full Moon on Saturday, December 6 at 7:26 am Eastern Standard Time (EST). The Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon in the opposite sign of Gemini. All the planets are aligning to help us face our fears, examine our shadow, decide whether to stay the course or change directions. Now is the time to ‘take stock.’

The Winter Solstice occurs on December 21 at 6:03 pm EST followed closely by the New Moon in Capricornat 8:35 pm EST. This is the optimal time to set new intentions. There is a blast of cosmic energy that accelerates our evolution.

It’s time to ‘take stock.’ Go inside. Do the inner work. Retreat. Have a wonderful holiday season! See you next year!

Where’s Rosemary?

December 5-7 – Practice Building Breakthrough, Los Angeles. In addition to attending the seminar, we’ll get another dose of grandbaby Tristan while we’re there! Woo Hoo! (Plus we see our friend and hairdresser in Santa Monica – a long way to go for a haircut, I know!)

Details: Playshop

Remember, I love and bless you every day!

ROSEMARY’S THROWBACK THURSDAY VIDEO: You are an Alchemist!

During this post-Thanksgiving week we have been exploring Thanksgiving and Transformation and how they do truly go hand-in-hand. Today’s video from a little over a year ago speaks to how we are agents of Transformation for other people. Be grateful for the power you have, as alchemists, to transform the lives of so many! And we are grateful for you!

THANKSGIVING TRANSFORMATION: Richard’s Commentary

The title of Rosemary’s post of her poem, Butterfly, holds deep meaning in itself. Thanksgiving and Transformation aren’t words that go easily together, but if we give the pair a bit of thought there is more there.

We are now moving well into the last month of 2014. All the turkey trimmings are gone or put away. Is your sense of “thanksgiving” also put away with the November decorations, thrown out with the bones of the bird? Or do you practice gratitude all year long?

Rosemary’s second butterfly in her poem says: “Nothing is static. Nothing stays the same. The only constant is change.” Can we be grateful for every change? Can we look at every change as part of a greater transformation as explained by the third and smallest butterfly? This is the challenge the poem presents. It is the every day, small changes, moment to moment, that generate the transformations of our lives. And gratitude every day, moment to moment for those small changes leads to “thanksgiving transformation.”

Can you hear the vibration that rings between these two words? There is an echo between them, they are “light shadows” – we are thankful and we transform; we transform and we are thankful – every day and in every way. Thanksgiving Transformation is a state of being – continuous gratitude for the continuous state of change we experience. Thanksgiving Transformation is Life!

There is another pairing of words the squirrel of the poem brings to us: Presence and Preparation. These set up another vibration, the echo between being present in the moment, experiencing it fully, and being prepared for the next moment, that moment of change. It’s almost asking that we exist in two states at once; the dynamic about being prepared for tomorrow’s change while being fully present today is the challenge.

butterflyAnd this dynamic, this vibration is present in every breath, every heartbeat. As we inhale we breathe in appreciation, gratitude, thanksgiving for everything, especially the change of our body chemistry with the intake of fresh air. As we exhale we prepare for the next breath, exhausting the stale, used up air and the byproducts of our metabolism.

From the smallest change in our body chemistry, moment to tiny moment, to the great transforming changes in our lives, day-to-day, year-to-year, we are blessed. At the microcosmic level every moment is a miracle. And at cosmic scales, the beauty of the remnants of a supernova, as just one example, pictured here, are mind-boggling! I am in constant thanksgiving for all of it and all the blessings. I may not always be prepared for the coming changes, transformations, but I can truly give thanks for them!

Thanksgiving Transformation. You can’t have one without the other!
