We come together at the New Moon
to honor our silent energy
to come out of the neeeded darkness
the silence of Soul gathering
There is a quiet energy beginning with the New Moon
and rising to the Full which
reflects our capacity as women to
become fully developed beings
There is a current we share with our Selves and
and that current is a circle
And that circle has an inner spiral and an outer curve
And this is a meditation
to balance the inner voice
with the outer movement.
From Celebrating the New Moon: A The new moon, which marks the beginning of the Jewish month. According to tradition, because women did not participate in the sin of the golden calf, they were given the holiday of Rosh Chodesh. It is customary for women not to work on Rosh Chodesh. Anthology (Jason Aronson, 1996), p. 193.
