I often write about the new moon and full moon on my social media pages and give guidance on what to do, I have been working with the lunar cycles for a while now and have found it very beneficial to me both personally and work wise.
The moon affects planet earth and the people on it. Most specifically, it affects water for example it controls our oceans’ tides, and seeing as the human body is 75-80% water it makes sense that is affects us too. The word lunatic comes from Latin luna ‘moon’ (from the belief that changes of the moon caused intermittent insanity) and police have linked full moons to a rise in aggressive behaviour among drinkers.
Most people know that the moon is a satellite around Earth, we have a full moon once a month, about every 29 days and there is also a new moon every 29 days. This is why there is will usually be something lunar related from me about every 2 weeks. There are just 2 of the moon’s many phases there are actually eight phases to a moon cycle, and the energy ebbs and flows at each one.
The new moon is the most fertile time of the month. This is a great time to plant seeds you want to sprout… to make wishes, and set intentions. In bio dynamic gardening this would be the time to sow above ground plants. The new moon is a time for manifesting what you want to achieve whether that is a work based goal or something small such as sorting out a cupboard. The law of attraction works so that as soon as you make a commitment to make monthly manifesting and physically putting it to the front of your mind and on paper then you will see great results.
The full moon, on the other hand, is a time of climaxes and confusions. Emotions are often heightened at the time of the full moon (from anger to upset), and sleep disturbed. The full moon offers an opportunity to wipe the slate clean. To forgive people who have wronged you, and to apologise to those you have hurt too. It’s a great time for reflection and release. For cutting ties, and letting go of any negativity. This can be such a cathartic exercise to do and great for mental health. This is also the time to cleanse any crystals you have by popping them onto a windowsill to bathe in the moonlight.
This is the most basic of ways to work with the moon but you can go further and work with all 8 phases or you can more specific to you by working with your star sign and the moons. The moon cycle works through the signs of the zodiac in the exact same order that the signs would appear when you’re reading your horoscope online or in a newspaper. Each zodiac will focus on a certain area whether that be finance, home life or career if you set intentions and release negativity surrounding the one the moon is in you will find your results are quicker and more powerful.
