New Moon in Virgo: The Catharsis of Chaos

 "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." Matthew 10:34

As I sat with the energy of this New Moon, this is the verse that came to me. I remembered the lessons I learned in Sabbath School about this verse. How could the self-styled Prince of Peace be bringing a sword? How is that peaceful?

This is the paradox of this New Moon. No doubt we live in chaotic times. Peace is a precious commodity these days. This New Moon suggests that we obtain peace by embracing and mastering chaos. We do that by becoming the chaos.

Learning to master change is a lifelong lesson. This New Moon opens up a new chapter in our learning process. In this chapter, we will finally learn to stop fighting change and give into it. We will learn how beautiful and healing chaos can be. We will learn to let go of everything we hold dear in full realization that we always have everything we need at all times. We will learn that timely embrace of the sword is the only way to bring the peace we long for.

"All that you touch

You Change.

All that you Change

Changes you.

The only lasting truth

Is Change.


Is Change."
