Behold the coming Full Moon
Ah! Behold the coming Full Moon. A Full Moon week is always exciting – tensions rise and tempers flare, sure, but they are turning points for us all. We measure out our lives in Full Moons, in many ways. Even as young children, we are taught “look at the Moon!” and somehow most of us grow up feeling connected to it somehow. Working with the Moon cycles is actually something wise women have done for thousands of years – though of course the practise when underground following the Burning Times!
What’s the Full Moon about?
The Full Moon is the climax of the lunar cycle. It’s when the Moon is completely round, of course, and it happens when the Sun and the Moon are on exact opposite sides of the zodiac. Symbolically it means we have all made it to another Full Moon and it’s time to let stuff go that we no longer need.
If you are a part of the new growing trend towards minimalism, then use each Full Moon to take stock of what you need to declutter in your house and your life.
On an emotional level, it’s also time to let stuff go. So what are you releasing this week? Write it down on a list and burn it, preferably on the night of the Full Moon. The exact time of it wherever you are is here moonmessages.com/moontimes
This particular Full Moon…
The particular flavour of this Full Moon is potentially healing. If you have to forgive someone now – or forgive yourself – you have super lunar support.
Note that the first astro-combo after the Full Moon this time around is a clash between the Sun and Saturn. This can certainly heighten the strains of the week. Talking things sooner rather than later is strongly advised!
An affirmation for the Full Moon
If you would like to work with the Full Moon to divest yourself of dramas just say this over and again on the night when the Moon is at her fullest; “I forgive you, I forgive me, I forgive positively everyone I know and everyone who knows me, in all directions of time!”
Do you want to work with the Full Moon for real? I’ve created a very simple A4 PDF designed to help you work with the energies of the Full Moon in Aries. It’s the first Full Moon of the new lunar cycle (Aries being the first sign of the zodiac) so sign up here now – it’s free!
You are arguably the luckiest sign this week. While nearly everyone else will feelthe sharp end of a rather nasty Mars/Uranus clash, for you the energies could convert very nicely into something sexy and exciting. Avoid disputes related to cash though, or you could ruin the vibe altogether.Overall, though, the theme of the week is all about you taking some much needed time out, so you can contemplate life. Lying low will pay you dividends, so go low-key.
There’s nothing wrong with a bit of introspection. And after the first week of September is over, your mind is drawn inward. Getting your thoughts together can be productive; dwelling on what you’ve done wrong and wallowing in guilt, less so.
And it really isn’t your fault if you’ve become the apple of someone’s eye and you simply want to prod them with a sharp stick. Fortunately, that particular hassle is short lived. Life is much easier if you surround yourself with people who make you feel comfortable. The excitement of a new relationship isn’t really for you at the moment. Familiarity doesn’t breed contempt – rather, it gives you a warm glow when you’re with someone you know can rely on.
It’s all about making the most of what you already have rather than chasing something new and shiny just because it’s new and shiny. It isn’t that you find it hard to defend what you think is good and right. More that you’d prefer to focus your energy in more productive directions. However, if someone does have the temerity to contradict a value you hold dear to your heart, you’ll have no compunction in telling them just how wrong they are.
Although you might feel a little apathetic mid-month, you get pulled up sharp when money isn’t flowing towards you but making a mad dash in the opposite direction. Yes, things do break from time to time and need repairing or replacing, but are you sure you’re not being just the teensiest bit heavy handed?
Things turn around a little towards the end of the month when you’re much more inclined to talk over things that you’d been mulling over. Somehow, when you throw your ideas out into the world and share them with those around you, they seem much more manageable – and probably a lot less scary.
