A Valentine’s Day New Moon Meditation


This year’s Aquarius New Moon falls on Valentine’s Day and all in all, it’s set to be a friendly and dreamy day. With the Sun and Moon falling on the idealistic conjunction of Neptune and Chiron and with Venus in Pisces cosying up to Jupiter, it’s a great day for romantic interludes, social interactions and chilling out in general, especially as it also falls on a Sunday!

I always think that meditation is a really nice complement to the New Moon energies and what better for this particular New Moon than the classic Buddhist Meditation on Loving Kindness, which is used to evoke the four qualities of love: Friendliness (metta), Compassion (karuna), Appreciative Joy (mudita) and Equanimity (upekkha).

Here’s a how-to link from Buddhanet:

Enjoy!
