Key Moons for the Year

Moon Chart 2024

In all meditation it is of value for the student to remember that, from the standpoint of permanent benefit, it is easier to meditate effectively during the period from the new moon to the full moon, than from the full moon to the new moon. The first half of the lunar cycle is one of intensification, absorption and accretion; the second half is one of assimilation and distribution. More real progress over a long period can be made by observing this cyclic law.

Wisely utilizing newly acquired energies keeps inflowing and outflowing channels open and prevents emotional, mental, and psychical congestions, which may otherwise be experienced, with their accompanying physical consequences.
