The initial darkness of the new moon suggests that beginnings occur in the absence of seeing. This is the energy of embarking on a path even when we’re unsure where it will take us; lacking sight, we must rely on feeling. This is a wonderful balance to the tendency to overthink our way through life.
When the moon is invisible or barely visible in the night sky, perform this exercise with eyes closed to ignite your feeling sense and unite it with your intellect, supercharging your ability to make clear decisions.
Tune into your body, scanning slowly from head to toe, noticing any sensations without judging or labeling them. Breathe for a few rounds, connecting with this heightened awareness of felt sense in your body. Shift your attention to your mind, and imagine a mind light expanding into every pocket of your body, uniting feeling and thought. Bring to mind a question, and allow both modes of knowing to forge an intuitive-intellectual response.
