Do you want to find out more about what the full moon is and we move into it, and what it may represent or bring for you in terms of your spirituality?
If you are, you have come to the right place. Here, we are going to look a little closer at this phase of the moon, what it means and how you can be fully prepared for it to get the very best out of it emotionally and physically. Let’s dive in.
A full moon takes place at least once a month when the sun’s rays fully illuminate the moon’s surface.
The moon does not have its own light, but when it is at its brightest and strongest, we are getting the most light and vitality from the sun’s rays bouncing off the lunar surface.
Although the energy of a full moon lasts for around three days before and after the lunation, the moon is only full for a brief moment when the sun and the moon are directly opposite each other in the sky and on the wheel of the zodiac.
The moon, planet, and sun are aligned like the new moon at this time, but the moon is directly opposite the sun on the other side of the earth.
As a result, the entire illuminated section can be seen complete and round on Earth. The seed has reached its full potential. Fertility, transformation, completion, and abundance are all represented by this symbol of fullness.
The term waning refers to the fact that energy levels are dwindling during this period. It is a great time to let go of anything that does not serve your higher purpose, as well as anything else you would like to let go of, eliminate, or finish. Relationships, work, feelings, and emotions are all possibilities.
It is a time for magic, healing, and guidance. The evening before this process is ideal for recharging your emotional batteries. Take a seat outside and enjoy the moonlight. Crystals, oracle cards, and meaningful jewelry can also be exposed to the moon’s energy to cleanse and charge them.
Tension, polarisation, and vivid thoughts and emotional behaviour are some of the downsides of the full moon. Put your thoughts down on paper and conduct a releasing ceremony to release the pent-up energy and refocus it.
In Western Astrology, the Moon is the ruler of Cancer, the Water sign, and anyone born between June 21st and July 22nd. Cancerians are sweet, insightful, feisty, and moody, and they can be unpredictable at times. People born under the sign of Cancer can also be compassionate and gentle. Those born under the sign of the Crab value their home, comfort, and protection. Cancerians are sentimental people who despise confrontation and drama.
When the Full Moon joins their zodiac sign on the zodiac wheel, its forces influence the mood, emotions, feelings, and decisions of others, not just those born under Cancer’s law. The Moon’s passage creates strong and distinct waves of impact by forming unique aspects with other celestial bodies and the Sun.
Aries: The Moon’s energy stimulates impulsivity and excitement, but it can also lead to conflict and indifference. It is a time of self-assurance, self-expression, and self-discipline when the Full Moon reaches Aries. Emotional health, setting boundaries, creative endeavours, and new ventures are all important.
Taurus: The Moon emphasises the importance of emotional grounding, centering, and equilibrium. The main focus is a love of all things artistic and a desire to appreciate beauty while being loving and down to earth.
Gemini: The energies of the Full Moon contribute to the period’s unpredictability and volatility. Capriciousness, restlessness, and an abundance of energy all play a role. A greater need for intellectual stimulation and learning activities exists.
Cancer: Family links, friendships, and romantic relationships are emphasized by the planetary waves, with a special emphasis on home. Kindness, caring, and deepening established bonds are now important. However, the time is also associated with irritability, mental confusion, and ambiguity.
Leo: When the Moon joins Leo, it is all about wanting validation, adoration, and limelight. Friendships flourish, and the energies emphasise incentives for hard work or recognition for one’s special talents.
Virgo: With the Moon in Virgo, all situations involving solid facts, reasoning, observation, and business are at the forefront. The era evokes feelings of simplicity and transparency. Emotional expression and discovery are now less supported by the energies.
Libra: Seeking equilibrium, unity, and peace of mind in all aspects of life is important. Libra, on the other hand, is dominated by Air, so maintaining harmony can be a constant battle. Highlights include talkativeness, intellectual stimulation, and socialisation.
Scorpio: When the Moon passes into Scorpio, everything becomes more impactful: pleasure, excitement, jealousy, passion, and hatred. Neurosis and obsession become actual possibilities as a result of the force of emotion. In emotional matters, skepticism, doubts, hesitation, indecisiveness, and severe caution reign supreme.
Sagittarius: Optimism, faith, risk-taking, and exploration characterise this time period. Spiritual and intellectual enlightenment are hot topics right now. The Moon in Sagittarius stimulates a desire to try new things or see old things in new ways.
Capricorn: When the Moon is in Capricorn, neatness, candour, strength, and consistency reign supreme. Unless non-conformity leads to better order, custom now trumps unorthodoxy. Perseverance and tenacity are emphasised, and all business-related ventures take centre stage.
Aquarius: When the Moon reaches Aquarius, the energy is one of liberation from tradition. The emphasis is on innovation, creativeness, quirkiness, and defiance. The effect of this time is marked by shifts in interpretation, abrupt changes, and the unexpected.
Pisces: With the Moon in Pisces, there will be a greater emphasis on spiritual pursuits, inner transformation work, and identity. Dreamwork, spiritual journeys, reflection, and experience altered states of awareness are among the highlights. The time is marked by imaginative leaps, fantasy, and nostalgia.
People from all walks of life have marvelled at the moon throughout history, helping to shape what the Full Moon represents as an icon today. Although it is true that the Moon is most active during its strongest illumination and darkest darkness, each phase of the Moon has its own unique energy fingerprint. Interested in a Moon Reading?
