august new moon...

The new moon is exactly aligned with the sun today at about 7 PM EDT. The Sun and Moon are activating hexagram 4 of the I Ching...Youthful Folly. This is in the sign of Leo...the sign of the lion and of art, creativity, self-expression, love of life!
What hexagram 4 says (in the words of Carol K. Anthony) is "A new lesson; you are learning something you never knew before."

Open up today, and on through this two week cycle leading up to the full moon, to learning new things about yourself...to new ways of self-expression and fulfillment. This leads us to the full moon of August 28th activating hexagram 55...Abundance and will be exact in line 5...Growth! (more on that later in the month.)

Here's a Leonine sunflower borrowed from Wikipedia...


Sunflower flower essence: The healthy Self shines forth from the soul, not unlike the sun which radiates in the sky. This benign and wondrous soul quality of radiance at once inspires with its light, and heals with its warmth. All human souls have within them this capacity to shine like the sun...

The sunflower is my favorite... any chance to pick some up for my dining room table is a happy day!

sunflowers are so bright and cheerful...there's a street that I drive down to take the boys to aikido where there are patches of sunflowers all down the sidewalk...so much fun to see them...one year I want to plant a whole bunch!
