The April 18 Aries New Moon (11:57 a.m. PDT) is a powerhouse time to set new career intentions or reinvigorate your existing goals. Dynamic Mars squares enthusiastic Jupiter at the New Moon, giving you the boost you need.
Now it’s time to work the Career gua inside and outside your front door. For best results, be sure to sweep, clean and energize this area at the New Moon.
This Astro Feng Shui ritual will help light a fire under you by pumping up your life force.
You will need: A red candle, a goblet of water, a pen and paper.
Position your candle at a comfortable and safe spot in your Career gua. Set the goblet of water nearby. Light the candle and focus on the flame to center yourself. Take some deep breaths and consider your immediate goals for your career. Imagine an inner Sun in your solar plexus, with a fire burning in the center of it. On the inhale, fan that fire and drop into it any negative thoughts, emotions, or images that are standing in your way from experiencing a healthy career or from moving forward. On the exhale, transform all that’s been incinerated into light that radiates out of every pore.
Continue this breathing pattern until your thoughts and feelings have been neutralized. (If you know the Breath of Fire, which involves taking rapid breaths into your belly through your nose, you can include it). When you feel complete, bring your awareness to your heart and feel appreciation.
Dip your fingers into the goblet, and flick a little water onto your solar plexus area, to affirm your cleansing and renewal. Then, write down what you wish to achieve within the next 30-day time frame. Keep it realistic; if you shoot too high and your subconscious mind rebels, you may set yourself up for disappointment (i.e. “I now win $100 million in the lottery.”)
Here are a few realistic examples: “I now welcome 10 new paying clients who are greatly benefited by the services I offer.” Or, “I now find the energy and resolve to create a terrific website.” Speak the words aloud and give thanks that it is done. Fold the paper and slip it under or near the candle (remember to blow it out later).
