Say the Prayer of Effective Action by the dark of the New Moon in Aries, April 2008

by Crystal Pomeroy

One of the most significant cycles of the year begins with Saturday night’s New Moon in Aries, with a chart emphasizing assertive Mars energy, strategic savvy and the tension that has marked the year since it began. Luna now opens a door to direct the 2008’s intense energies with initiatives that can ground our personal paths of power, as they simultaneously contribute to healing power issues for humanity at large. Luna joins the Sun to form a stellium in Aries that also includes Pallas, the goddess of strategy who has been closely squaring Mars for over a month. Mercury—Lord of Communication—completes this group and forms a T-square with Mars and Pluto.

The opposition of these two mafia bosses of the zodiac marked the chart for 2008, promising intense action for the entire year, action which can lead to “miraculous manifestation”, as we wrote in our predictions at the Winter Solstice. The special significance of this lunar month is underscored by the day and hour it begins: April 5, 11:55 PM. It marks the ancient celebration of the goddess, Fortuna, commonly known as Lady Luck. As for the hour, according to more than one author, eleven and its multiples are master numbers. In his book, Numbers: Facts, Figures and Fiction, Richard Phillips states that “eleven is a master vibration and as such should not be reduced to a single number”. We can indeed make tangible progress to mastering this year’s vast potential during the next 28 days, with special emphasis on the two weeks from now until the Full Moon.

The Sabian symbol for 17 Aries refines our ability to synchronize with its promise, “Two dignified spinsters sitting in silence”. The actions we are led to may require cooperation with others, but they bear out independent inspiration and fortify our self-reliance. The prayer suggestions below are designed to optimize this portal by synchronizing our consciousness with its vibrations.

Ceremony and prayers for the Aries New Moon

Have on hand pen and page, as well as any of the following space synchronizers:

  • Red or bright pink geraniums or carnations
  • Cactus
  • Incense, especially carnation or myrrh
  • Minerals, such as ruby, coral, white quartz, topaz, turquoise

Light your incense, saying something like:

This is an offering for the angels, especially Malchedael, as well as the Angels of Effective Action, Divine Strategy, Focus and Confidence. I call on you and request that you assist my soul and all of humanity, so that we may believe in ourselves and take decisive, strategic initiatives toward our destinies of positive power now.

Light your candle, saying something like:

The light of the Divine Strategist is with me, guiding me on the best, most effective path for important, decisive initiatives now.

Take a few minutes to consider what inner and outer initiatives you could take that would further your path of power and strengthen your self-reliance. Place special emphasis on intuitive inspiration that you might otherwise stifle because deep down you feel you need somebody else’s approval or assistance. Some examples include:

Make a treasure map
Write a proposal and send to ____________
Contact ______ (name of teacher, client or other key colleague) ________ about__________
Write political letter or other activist document
Finish design or creation of product or project
Select new living space or other property
Develop a plan to give a class

Review your chosen initiative or initiatives, taking several minutes with each to consider the most strategic possible approach. Contemplate new avenues, apply all of your intelligence, listen to your gut-level intuition and then make notes that clarify the most effective ideas that come to you for these steps.

Bless your prayers by consecrating them to the forces of active good in your own life, and that your own audacious actions may strengthen and inspire those of all people.

Repeat words like those that follow during six minutes:

I have been blessed with the talent, ability and whatever other resources I need to move forward on my divinely inspired projects. Only for today, I release concern for the approval of others, and follow my own instincts and intuition with decision and energy now.

Program your dreams for the Aries New Moon cycle (until the next New Moon):

Each night before sleeping, go over Step 5 for several minutes. Finish this dream-portal session by asking your angels to help you clarify and adhere to your strategies for tomorrow’s progress, and to help you remember them.

Upon waking, write down your dreams before analyzing them for signs and answers (Betty Bethard’s, The Dream Book: Symbols for Self Understanding is one of the best I’ve found to enrich this process).

A parting word

San Francisco healer Dr. Asa Hershoff says that whether our chosen practice be prayer or meditation, basically it is a way of remembering the truth about our own powerful beings. Even though it often feels like life is happening to us, we can choose instead to have it happen with us, from us and through us. This lunation reminds us to refer to that force within as a point of departure and from it create prayers-in-motion: our own audacious and strategic actions. As we use them to make progress one-day-at a time during this lunar month, we will weave the web of our present and future experience, adding with each initiative a silver thread to the larger fabric of the universe.
