Sacred Self Care Guide for August 2018 from Rising River Wisdom School
In all the worlds’ mythology and culture, there have been wisdom keepers, those who looked to the natural and the hidden worlds as a guide for life on earth. Within these seekers are stargazers, who ascribe meaning to the “stars” and their movements through the solar system.
Though Earth’s Moon is no star, it reflects the brightest light we can see in the night sky. Its phases are a part of human consciousness, and its movements affect systems on earth and sea. When we align our activities to the Moon’s cycles we find a greater connection to both our bodies and intuitive wisdom. Read on for some self care wisdom inspired by the new moon.
Rising River Wisdom School is an immersive program for those looking to step into their own power and carry wisdom for themselves and the world around them. Below you will find some Sacred Self Care insight for September from Rising River Wisdom School’s incredible teachers – we’ve got you covered for setting intentions with the upcoming new moon, to seeking insight from animal guides to plant medicine, plus lots of guidance for mindfully navigating the world with your vibrant well-being in focus.

“Invention of the Future”
Happy New Moon!
We are in Virgo season, a time to sort through our experiences, review, discriminate and improve ourselves. This New Moon compels us to organize, to ground ourselves in the details, to create lists and to form our next plan. This energy is very helpful and positive for laying some foundations to both envision and create the future you. The cosmic weather includes transiting Jupiter expanding Pluto’s power for transforming lives, Mercury in Virgo and Mars and Saturn now direct further fueling the urgent need for rebirths personally and collectively.
However, Before we all jump into getting busy with our external self improvement, Neptune opposing the Moon asks us to integrate the amorphous and add in time to balance duties and tasks with rest, meditation and prayer.
As many have experienced already, true wellness lies in the wholeness of balancing our active and receptive selves, which is really a dance between stillness and movement, inspiration and application. We can only fly when we mix desire, belief AND magical pixie dust!
This wishing Moon, take the time to sketch your desires, and take steps to improvement, but do remember that the extra magical ingredient in manifestation is imagination, that special spark that comes from our connection to the mystery of life and truly is the invention of all our future.
