Powerful New Moon today

We'll are into a new moon phase today in the astrological sign of Aries. New Moons always bring new beginnings that stem from the desires we have bubbling just underneath the surface. It marks an ideal time to acknowledge what it is within you that now wants to rise above the surface and take flight.
The Aries New Moon brings forth a bold and courageous energy, stirring up initiation. So it's a perfect time to allow yourself to "take a leap of faith."
Where in your life are you ready to make a BOLD move? What courageous action are you willing to take? And what new opportunities await you when you step outside your comfort zone?
A new moon phase always brings a time of new beginnings.
  • Where in your life do you desire a new beginning?
  • What would you like to “reboot?”
  • Where are you in need of a recharge?
During a new moon phase, the sky is completely black, with the exception of little sparkles of light in the form of stars. It’s the point in every month when the moon takes a retreat and begins to grow again, redoubling her light and reflecting new creative energy on all worldly things.
This phase marks the ideal time for connecting with our inner selves and our heart’s desire. By looking for the “light” and knowing that it’s there, somewhere, waiting to be discovered – we can reach a place where our personal reflection begins to shed its own light.
What wants to emerge? What wants to be born?
This is a time where dots start to connect and patterns start to reveal themselves – just as the stars do in the night sky. Everything has a place and everything has a purpose. Now it becomes our job to find our place in the next phase of life’s journey.
As a creative individual you can experience your own new moon energy by tapping into the gifts of a new moon phase. This is a time to ponder where you are now, what led you to this particular moment of questioning, and where to go from here. It’s a time to explore new ways of thinking and to prepare for a new path of travel.
What is it that you want to create for yourself – beginning now?
 New Moon Energy is good for a few days before and after the new moon. You still have time! More details check out - Susan Miller is my my favorite astrologer.

Writing assignment for April Safety Harbor Story Circle Plus a great article

Safety Harbor Library Circle. Third Wednesday of each month 6-7:45.  Largo Library Circle is the first Wednesday of each month also 6-7:45. Both circles are free and open to the public. No writing experience necessary - come on - we know you have stories to tell.

Our writing assignment for Safety Harbor - April 17 - Think about - then write about a situation where your decision was made based on "I was worried I'd offend someone."

Was it a romance, a job, a neighbor? Would your decision have been a better one, or sent you on a different path, if you said what you thought or meant instead? 600 words or less, please.

Interesting article: We had the prompt "Writing a letter to your teenage self" a few months ago at Safety Harbor.  Haven't done it yet at the Largo Library Circle yet.
