The New Moon is traditionally the time for new beginnings…. so what would happen if you were to commit to nourishing your creativity when the new moon arrives? How would it feel to commit to channeling the new moon energy into your creative life?
What would it be like to become devoted to the nourishment of your creativity…even for a few days?
And what, my dear, would it be like, if you allowed yourself – and your art – to be witnessed? How excited would you be if you didn’t just create something, but also shared your creation with other people who were also stepping into their creative lives?
While all of us at Modern Creative Life hope that each of our readers is indulging their creativity (even if it’s in small ways) fairly frequently, we are also dedicated to the idea that we get to choose our own paths to creative living each and every day of the year, by writing, painting, cooking, or even making and artful arrangement of the books on our shelves.
As well, we believe it’s important to honor the cycles of life that form currents through all our lives. As part of our ongoing celebration of those cycles and currents, we will be releasing a collection of prompts to inspire you on your creative journey.
Here are the 1st Prompts from our Nourishment Issue – Honoring the New Moon in Gemini:
Write a poem, essay, or short story. Take a photograph and leave us with the image alone. Create a photo essay.
Make a collage and photograph a detail of it. Write a letter or a Dear Diary Entry….
Post your creation in your blog and/or share your work on Social Media, be it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or all of those spaces. Use the tag #NewMoonCreative so we can find you. Leave a comment here (with a link) so we can read your words and lovingly witness what and how you are creating.
On the Full Moon (June 20th), we’ll post a collection of the work that was inspired by these prompts and post them here, with links back to the full work (and you).
