- We all talk about the moon and it’s cycles, but did you know that you can do rituals with the moon’s cycles to help on your personal development journey and aid with transformation? If you didn’t know that then you came to the right place!
The moon brings so many energetic changes into our world because it’s the closest planet to us. We all get crazy around the full moon right? We feel more emotional. Our bodies sometimes feel weak or energized during certain phases. There’s a reason for all of it! We are directly connected to the moon.
In astrology our moon sign is directly associated with our inner being, or how we function on an internal level. So it makes sense as to why the moon has such an affect on us.
As the moon waxes, or grows larger in our sky, thimy s come into fruition. When it wanes, or grows smaller, things are releasing and letting go.
What does this mean to us when we’re wanting to use its phases as a personal guide or compass?
The New Moon is a time of New beginnings. This is the time for intention setting and planting seeds for areas of growth. This is your clean slate. Start fresh. Take time to yourself. Participate in a lot of self care by listening to your body and paying attention to what it needs. Meditate a lot. Clear your head.
When it is a new moon pay attention to what projects you are starting in life, set intentions for those. Intentions will grow as the moon grows in the sky, so listen to your intuition and what is coming up in your life NOW. Lead with your heart. Listen to how you feel without logically pulling it together.
Because the moon and the sun are on two opposite sides of the zodiac, we tend to get emotional and a bit short tempered during this time. The full moon houses a lot of energy. I like to think of it like a helium balloon that keeps getting filled and at some point, pops. That is the same with the moon. At some point we have to experience a release. We must make room for more intentions, so at some point we have to let things go. That is the energy surrounding the full moon.
This is the time of surrender and trusting the universe. Things that are surfacing around the full moon can be looked at as lessons and things we need to let go of. Maybe it’s an expectation, or a feeling that comes up… trust it. See that it isn’t serving your best and highest self, then let it go.
The energy around the new moon and full moon will be present for roughly three days. Do rituals as close to it peaking as possible, but if your schedule doesn’t allow it then you do have a few days.
Moon phases can be looked at for insight as to what needs tweaking in our lives. Pay attention to what is coming up and happening to us during these phases. Connect with the energy that is present. Feel it. Love it. Learn from it. You’ll start to gain a whole new understanding of energy work and what the different phases feel like. You’ll learn yourself. You’ll connect with the universe around you! It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.
