MBG: Tonight’s New Moon In Scorpio Is All About Power & Seduction — Here’s How To Tap Into It
As we plunge into the shadows of the unseen universe within ourselves, our eyes, as well as our inner vision, will eventually adjust to the darkness. It is here where we can begin to finally see the light, as parts of ourselves that were once hidden are revealed. New moons are typically invisible to the naked eye, but we can look to the dark night sky as though it were a blank canvas—symbolic for new beginnings and intention setting.

“At the heart of caring is an ‘and’ not an ‘or’. Deep within us lies a potential that transcends our artificial limitations.

You can do this no matter what part of Earth you’re standing on.
Patheos-Pagan: Irish-American Witchcraft: Witchcraft with Fairies; Walking the Wild Woods
There is a long history of witches working with fairies in various ways, both learning from them and being in service to them. In modern paganism we more often see this relationship played out very differently, with the Good Folk being approached from a more ceremonial magic perspective or treated as a kind of spirit guide or ally.
WHAT IS LOVE?
“When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully — in the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is to act. If you really love, from the depths of your Consciousness, that love gives you a native wisdom. You perceive the needs of others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from any personal desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet those needs, dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in the way. Such is the immense, driving power of love.”
— Eknath Easwaran
“Therefore, when I say that ‘I love,’ it is not I who love, but in reality Love who acts through me. Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness, a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”
— Robert A. Johnson
“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

“I pray thee, O God, that I may be beautiful within.” -Socrates
Ah, Socrates! Wisdom is beautiful! You are beautiful! Who would argues that this great philosopher wasn’t beautiful? It’s like a supermodel wishing to be more photogenic. We are all beautiful simply because we ARE. We are here, on this beautiful planet. We cannot be MORE beautiful, because we are already all that.
