Crescent Moon Mantra for Spring

greek virgin

“When you turn to your Virgin, that aspect of yourself that is owned by no one but yourself, she will tell you what you most yearn for is within your reach. Reach for it and you will thrive–as long as you never measure the worth of this “birth” by comparison with another’s or by how much money it will bring. Bring your soul child to fruition and then give it away, and it will return to you in multiple ways.” Paula M. Reeves

What a joy to listen to, to embrace “that part of you owned by no one but yourself.” The synchronicity of thriving in this way showed up for me from dark to new moon by being led by my body’s subtle, clear YES’s towards books that spoke about, yes, the archetype of the Virgin…

Spring is the time of the Virgin. Crescent waxing moon, her phase right now, emboldens this energy.

Be with, be with. What do the inner ears, the heart ears, the soul ears, hear. What’s the longing, the stir, the sound of the fundamental inner voice saying… that only you can own?

On the wheel of the year this is when the fruit of the soul is but a seed breaking from its shell. Sending roots down, earthbound, to the underworld that gestates us… sending tender green shoots up, heavenward, to the celestial realms that give us light.

Growth feels like tension sometimes, that’s normal and ok.

What is new, fresh, of you, wishing sooooo to grow
grow
grow

Grounding or earthing exercises outside, shoes off, feet on the earthen soil or in her waters is especially life giving right now.

Grounding or earthing at twilight or just past dusk, when the waxing crescent moon is lowering towards the horizon, is especially life giving right now.

Connect with her, in her intuitive Virgin form at this phase of the medicine wheel of the year.

Here is a sweet mantra I’ve been using since the weekend’s new moon, also by Paula M. Reeves. I’ve been using it intentionally to embrace my Virgin sensibility on my own terms.

“I accept the nurturance of the deep feminine that radiates from within with each and every beat of my heart.”

“I accept the nurturance of the deep feminine that radiates from within with each and every beat of my heart.”

“I accept the nurturance of the deep feminine that radiates from within with each and every beat of my heart.”
