Oh how I love the moon, she is our constant companion, our greatest nurturer, energiser and guide but also our greatest challenger.
She will find those sensitive spots in us, those dark places where we push down our pain and fear and hide our shameful secrets and she will push and poke prod and squeeze until it all comes to the surface, of us to see. The New Moon will do this quietly, internally but the Full Moon will go full on drama mode usually in public.
If we fight her we are in for a lot of pain and frustration but if we begin to understand her, to flow with her, looking where she guides us to look and taking action when she prompts it, then our lives will become truly enriched.
Firstly we need to look at and tune in with the natural rhythm and cycles of the moon, just like you would experience music. Not only are you getting in tune with the moon but also with the natural flow of life.
The moon follows a consistent cycle, month in month out it follows the same process, so each month we get the same opportunities to join her journey and create great change in our lives.
Each month the cycle has a different tone or theme, yet the structure remains the same.
The cycle waxes and wanes as it moves from New Moon to Full and back again. Wax means to increase and wane to decrease, think of how that relates to the energy of the moon. Around the full moon the energy is at its height and has been increasing in power or intensity since the previous new moon, the energy then begins to slowly lessen until we begin again with the new moon. This does not however mean that the new moon is any less powerful than the full moon, it’s effects are just not so avert.
This is a journey we are taking with the moon, one that starts afresh every 28 days, it will have its highs and its lows but we have to see the journey as a whole rather than just the stops along the way to really appreciate how well we have worked together and how far we have come.
So we begin the cycle of the new moon in our caves, preoccupied with our inner world, what we are feeling and thinking, our souls purpose, what we wish for ourselves and our world. We can reflect on the past and look forward to the future. We are creative and inspired. This is a time when we begin our inner work, facing our shadow selves. The time is right
This continues as the energies around facilitate this for us and slowly we begin to venture outside and bring our inner world into outer world, Doing the work ,making the changes.
By the full moon we are fully out there in the thick of it, partying hard. Everything is coming together one way or another.
Then begins the slow come down where we begin to go back within and reflect on the days that have passed since we last left our cave.
The New Moon is the start of the cycle, Day 1 of the next 28 days.
Think about about what your intentions are for the next 28 days, what would you like to create, to work on, to manifest? How would you like to grow, on all levels, mentally emotionally physically and spiritually. This is a blank page so think carefully how you would like to fill it and end the chapter.
The energy of the New Moon is always super intense, as is the Full Moon, it amplifies the other energies that are around and this is a great thing. It brings great opportunities to Let go of what is no longer useful in your life and to Manifest and Create something new.
A few days prior to the New Moon is a great time to start ensuring that you have let go of all that you need to in this cycle, so that you can create space for the new beginnings of the New Moon. In the full power of the New Moon you can then begin to set your intentions for the coming 28 days.
14 days later we have the Full Moon, this is also very powerful energetically and can have profound affects on us. This is the time that we reap what we have sown, our intentions and actions of the previous 28 days (since the last full moon) comes to fruition.
It is a time to look back and see how far we have come in past month, what we have learned, what we have received, what we are grateful for. It is also important to see the connections between your intentions, your actions and the outcome but also how you worked with the moon and followed her journey.
This is also a time of conclusions, events and situations that are ready to be released over the next 2 weeks in time for the new moon, come to a head. Good job you are heading back to your cave right?
The moon is incredibly important for us on our spiritual and personal development journey as it is strongly linked to our emotions.
It is our emotional baggage, blocks, fears and pain that keeps us trapped. The moon will help us with this and it isn’t always pleasant. As I said before she sticks her fingers straight in your wounds and drags them out for you to see. And see them we must, it really is for our own good and she is doing us a favour here. Because the beauty of it is the time is right! When we flow with life and the moon like this, following their cues we find we have all the support we need and the timing is perfect.
I have found that when the moon is really digging into peoples souls and making them face their dark sides we get a big influx of compassion love acceptance and grace to help with the process.
Thats why timing is so important and once we sync up with her we do this naturally. We all have to learn to stop pushing when we should be pulling. All of our lives would be so much easier if we flowed with the energy available to us.
If you don’t learn the lessons that were revealed to you gently in the energy of the new moon then they will come up in your face in the energy of the full moon.
The New Moon energy is a quiet time when your dark or shadow side will be revealed to you. This is not pleasant as we get to see our often hidden motives and agenda but the rewards for doing this work are incredible.
Each moon cycle is different and will have different meanings for you dependent upon where you are right now. If you have been doing your inner work and the time is right for you to be focusing on your career then this will be the tone of your moon cycle. You will be focused inspired and active.
If the time is right for you to do some inner work then this will come up for you, you may feel a little down or demotivated or maybe things just don’t seem to be working out or maybe the moon will be triggering your anger or resentments. However it shows up for you at any particular cycle just flow with it, know that this is what you are supposed to be focusing on right now.
So in a nutshell get to know the moon and her cycle every 28 days, feel the energy ebb and flow, wax and wane and work with that, push forward when the energy supports this and step back when it doesn’t.
See what she wants you to see and do something about it.
Use the power to manifest and create great change in your life.
The New Moon is an ending and a beginning and the Full Moon is wish fulfilment, the climax of the cycle.
Above everything else the moon is about intuition, your intuition, your inner knowing. It is the same energy, she is using your own energy to awaken you, to get you to follow that inner knowing, to guide yourself, to reconnect.
If you sit outside in either the full or the new moon you will find your psychic abilities heightened. So it is a great time to go outside and have a chat, with the moon the stars or whoever pops up.
This is all here for you, and if you take into account these hidden rules of the game then life will be much smoother happier and more rewarding.
So enjoy and go with the flow
Love and laughter Michele xxxx
