Full Moon

Tonight is a full moon and the skys are clear with no clouds to hinder the view of our glorious mother moon in her splendid fullness, she radiates her full light big and strong in this time of strength, love and power. A time of new beginnings, starting afresh and creating from a blank page. This energy last for 3 days prior and 3 days after the actual full moon.

At this time the moon is in her beautiful and radiant Mother aspect and we give praise to all mother goddesses such as Anu, Hera, Isis, Demeter, Freya, Luna, Diana, Spider Woman, Chaos, Frigg, Morrigan, Ta - Urt.

This gender association is a generalisation, and (as with most symbolic meanings) there are departures. Moon symbolism in Native American tribe (Navajo, Eskimo, Pueblo come to mind), along with African, Japanese, Maori, Teutonic, Oceania, and Sumerian-Semitic groups refer to the moon as a masculine force.

It is a very intuitive time and we are able to have confidence and see everything with full awareness and we can productively work with our intentions concerning matters of the home, money, progression, renewal, cycles, transition, balance, love, fertility, dreams, creativity and matters of emotion can be cleared in this moon power. A time to share knowledge and enjoy the fruition of our labours or release what is not working in our lives. Quiet inner work and meditation is very empowering. Symbolic of the height of power, the peak of clarity, fullness and attainment of desire. The nature-wise, and cosmically conscious Native Amercian Indians recognized the full moon in each month as having a specific outstanding restorative quality.

Know that the intention you put forward is “out there” in the universe and time is gathering all the circumstances and other people’s intentions and time frame together to make this happen the best way for all concerned. Planning medical treatments such as operations and inoculations are also better not done at this time of the month as wounds bleed more and form more scar tissue.

What is intriguing is the means by which the moon wields her force and influence. She is considered a luminary, but she produces no light of her own accord. She is reliant upon the sun’s light to reflect (mirror) her image to our earthly eyes. 

This method of projecting light makes the moon a symbol of subtlety. Clarity, reflection, and indirect deduction are gained by passive means. Where the sun will boldly bear down its blaze upon a given philosophical subject – the moon softly enfolds our attention – illumining our psyche in a gossamer glow that is more open to esoteric impressions.

The full moon affects the gravitational pull on Earth and all related with it, from tides to body secretions and blood circulation. The body is made up of 70 to 80% of water. It is assumed to also have an effect in any kind of electromagnetic energy and because the spiritual world is believed to manifest in some EMF frequencies, spiritual manifestations and activity might be enhanced under full moon.

It has been known for centuries that the full moon can affect people’s consciousness and behaviour. We all know from astrology that each of the planets, and the sun and moon, have an influence on our feelings, emotions and consciousness. The moon affects our emotions because the moon influences water; just as the moon causes the tides, it exerts a pull on the watery components of our body, and we feel this as emotions.

Our body has a field of energy – the aura – which is the same as the aurora or magnetic and gravitational field of the planet. We are all One, a part of the Universal Life Force; and it is natural to be aware of the greater cosmic system, which is as much a part of our consciousness as our brain is.

As human consciousness evolves and moves from the individual awareness to an awareness of greater integration within the whole cosmic system, we also expand our understanding of the unity of life and develop a love of all things, in the realization that We Are All One.

The time of full moon gives us a great opportunity for meditation which is a powerful tool in the service of humanity, when the mind is employed as a channel for receiving light, love and desire for good, and directed to all human consciousness. At full moon the earth and sun, the solar centre and energy force of life on earth are in alignment. When we are centred we are best able to make the intentions of our continued path to walk clearly. The energies of Full Moon can be instrumental in moving forward towards your goals.

"Meditation is the soul of rhythmic nature, as everything in the universe. The soul lives and breathes her way through it. The rhythmic nature of the soul of meditation should not be overlooked in the life of the aspirant. There is an ebb and flow throughout nature, and the tide of the ocean we see the beautiful representation of an eternal law. ... the idea of the cyclic response to the impulse of the soul finds itself behind the activities of morning meditation, the recognition of the noon and evening recap. In aspects of the full moon and new moon, we have a greater ebb and flow. "(Alice Bailey)

Take the time to observe, mediate, and work with the moon for yourself. Connect with her many faces, and apply your intuition to your life goals. If you work with her she will shower you with inspiration, expansion, and liberation.
