I have been told numerous times that I am superstitious. Well if my childhood is taken into account, it makes perfect sense that I have a tendency to be overly cautious when it comes to what is considered lucky and unlucky. Number one I was born in Asia. There are so many rules and regulations concerning what will bring luck and what will detract from it, people make entire careers off of advising others on luck. Through my travels I have picked up all sorts of habits and beliefs here and there and damn near everywhere which I have woven into my daily life. The crux of these ideals, for lack of a better term, is the amount of attention I pay to moon phases. I keep track of the waxing, waning, new, and full moon phases like people track their checking account balances. I keep abreast of everything that is connected to the moon because in my belief system, the moon has a lot to do with human behavior. I won't delve too deep into my thoughts but I will give a basic correlation so that you know where I am coming from. The tides of the ocean and the moon are very much in congruency with each other. The earth is made up of about 70% water. So the moon has control over our environment, that is unless you do not live in planet earth.  The moon and water are close bedfellows. Under this dictate,  humans are composed of a high percentage of water. So.. If the moon is connected to large bodies of water, then surely smaller bodies of water, or the human body is also influenced by the moon. Hence why behavior seems to change drastically when there is a full moon amiss. To me, a new moon is the symbol of new possibilities. It is a fresh start and as the moon waxes, we have the opportunity to manifest anything we want to change about ourselves as the power of the moon grows within ourselves and culminates on the night of the full moon.  WIth this in mind, tonight is the first night of the new moon in the new year. I am going to manifest changes in my life which will come to ahead on the night of the full moon. I would spell them out in this blog, but I don't want to jinx it. After all.. I am superstitious.
