   And so we are in the New Moon phase - Hecate has withdrawn, making way for the Maiden moon who will seize upon our thoughts and push us outward into activity once again.  Give thought to this, not only is the New Moon pushing and tugging on us, but also the growing energies of the returning Sun to the Northern Hemisphere.  There is a spicy, piquant edge to our energy now. The tiredness and the drained feeling of the old moon has been replaced by an alertness that has yet to find structure and direction. Our creative fires strive toward a goal that has not yet found expression. We are faced with possibilities from which we have yet to choose. In the same way, original and magical ideas that we may wish to bring forth and work upon in this fresh lunar cycle may not yet be illuminated; they are still in the realm of possibility, and may give only glimpses of what they could later become. We are in a still time but this stillness is filled with tension; it is not tranquil or detached. There are feelings of anticipation, of barely suppressed excitement, restlessness and edginess, and an urge to be active and motivated, yet lacking a direction yet. We are impatient to get on with life. The moon's persona at this time is not necessarily gentle, as people who work with those who are violent or emotionally unstable will tell you; a surge of irrational behavior often marks the new moon, though it may not peak as violently as at the full moon phase.
