november new moon...

The Sun and Moon will be exactly aligned at around 6 pm est today. They are in the hexagram called The Creative...hexagram #1, which is in the sign of Scorpio.

This can be a time for opening up to higher principles and higher knowing.

From "A Guide to the I Ching" by Carol K. Anthony....

"Ch'ien (Heaven/The Creative) also represents the creative idea (Cosmic image) before it is transformed into reality. Everything that now exists, first existed as a Cosmic image. Accordingly, Ch'ien also represents the hidden, creative potential inherent in any situation. By creative potential is meant the path that, if taken, will further everyone and everything in that situation. This creative potential is the particularly appropriate answer to the problem at hand."

The Creative asks that we let go of our need to make anything happen through our own desire for a particular outcome, and that we open ourselves to possibilities that we may not have thought of on our own.

What a great way to start a new cycle for this lunar month!

Not sure about where you are, but this morning, from behind the cover of misty clouds, and amidst scattered snowflakes, the sun was shining silver...very moon-like. It could have fooled me if I didn't know that the moon was new.
Chien is one of my most frequently tossed I-Ching hexagrams. Creative potential all around, for everyone...

Make the most of it :-)

love, me
