Create and Celebrate the New Year, Dream Factory Luncheon: September 21, 1917, Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, plus Deb’s Poem

By: Compiled by Nancy Cantor

September 23, 2017

The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah actually means “Head of the Year.”

Just like the head controls the body, our actions on Rosh Hashanah have a tremendous impact on the rest of the year.  

It is a time when we can re-connect to our Sacred Contracts and examine the behaviors, thoughts, actions and beliefs that have not supported the fulfillment   of the mission associated with our divine partnership.  We acknowledge those things and can re-commit to the right actions of our Sacred Contract.  In the Jewish faith, we are re-written into, “The Book of Life”.

New Moon: Sept 20: The astrology of new moon September 2017 continues the theme of change that began with the total solar eclipse on August 21. The changes this time will be more like minor adjustments to your long-term goals or how you get there.

The September 2017 new moon will remind you of the most painful wounds you have suffered. In order to move forward you must begin focus on the healing process. This will involve adapting to unexpected changes or making adjustments to your longer term hopes and dreams.

New Moon Meaning:

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. This is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or starting any new project.

All possibilities are on the table as you put yourself at the center of plans for your future. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs are questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The influence of the September 20 new moon influence lasts four weeks up to the October 19 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from September 20 to the October 5 full moon.

New Moon September 2017 Astrology

The new moon on September 20 is the first new moon since the total solar eclipse on August 21. Eclipses mark the beginning of a six-month phase with certain goals or aims.  Each new moon within the eclipse cycle represents a new stage of development of your long-term goals.

The aim of the August 21 solar eclipse was to make bold, confident changes that lead to long-term success. Determined and sustained effort will bring the growth and happiness you want. Positive change was predicted because the solar eclipse was trine Uranus.

The September 20 new moon quincunx Uranus means this new stage of development involves adapting to changing circumstances. Alterations to your original goal may be needed to make it more attainable. The new moon opposite Chiron means you must adjust your methods or expectations in response to your deepest and most painful wound.

Equinox: Sept 22: Day and night the same length

This Friday will see the end of summer and the start of the fall season. You may already be knee-deep in pumpkin-flavored everything, but this day, known as the fall equinox or Mabon in Paganism, makes autumn officially official. If you’re interested in feeling connected with nature, this is an important change to acknowledge.

The fall equinox technically occurs when the sun crosses the equator from north to south, during which time the day and night are nearly the same the length. In nature-based faiths, this seasonal shift was believed to be a sign that nature was “winding down,” or reaching the final stage of its annual cycle of birth and death.

Traditional celebrations usually involved tributes to harvest deities, since Mabon is a harvest festival as well as a seasonal rite.

Nowadays, the fall equinox reminds us that, not only is the weather going to change, but so will our personal lives and plans. Home and family usually take center stage during the colder months, which can mean moving our priorities around. Consider this day a brief respite before you find yourself dragging out the heavy coats and planning holiday meals.
