Working with the lunar cycle

July 11, 2018
working with the lunar cycle

The moon is responsible for lighting at the night’s sky, as well as the earth’s water. The moon’s gravitational force pulls on water in the oceans and creates tides. Spiritually, the moon looks after our emotions: controlling our desires, worries and dreams.  It’s said that as our bodies are made up of 85% water, the gravitational pull of the moon and the lunar cycle affects us too. The moon goes through several phases as it passes from new into full. Regardless of personal beliefs, working with the lunar cycle and the patterns of the mon offers the chance to focus on intention setting, working towards goals and letting go of what no longer serves you.

A simple guide to working with the lunar cycle

The moon goes through four major stages during the lunar cycle. Each one offers an opportunity for reflection. To harness the moon, use a lunar calendar to identify when each moon falls in the month. This will vary slightly by geographical location.

New moon

The new moon is the start of the lunar cycle. This is when there is no visible moon and the sky seems dark. Think of the new moon as a time of new beginnings, fresh starts and a blank page to work from. It’s a time to reset, refocus and to think about what you would like to see in your life.

Use the new moon to:

  • set intentions (situations and ideas you would like to happen)
  • visualise how you would like to see the future
  • create a vision board either using a pinboard and cut out images or Pinterest

Waxing moon

The waxing moon looks like a crescent. It’s time to take initiative with your intentions and turn those ideas into plans.

Use the waxing moon to:

  • network
  • look for synchronicity
  • work with others towards your vision

Full moon

The full moon is when the moon shines brightest. It’s a time when we celebrate what we’ve achieved and release what no longer works or is holding us back. Emotions run high during a full moon so it’s important to go slower with decision making.

Use the full moon to:

  • celebrate what you have achieved
  • recognise patterns or elements of life that no longer serve you and release them

Waning moon

The waning moon is again a crescent moon. This is a time for contemplation and reflection.

Use the waning moon to:

  • create space for the new
  • gratitude for all you have
  • rest and recuperate ready for the next stage

31 January 2018 and the super blood blue moon

January 29, 2018
Super blood blue moon

What is a super blood blue moon?

On 31 January, there will be a lunar eclipse, which is the second one of the month.

This one is going to be particularly special because not only will there be an eclipse, there will also be a super moon (which happens when the full moon is closest to the earth), a blue moon (because it’s the second full moon of the month, which doesn’t happen often) and a blood moon (because when the moon passes behind the earth, it looks a reddish colour).

A super blood blue moon is quite rare and so is particularly significant.

What does the super blood blue moon mean for me?

Eclipses often bring turning points in our lives. They illuminate areas we may need to concentrate on and can bring about huge changes and transformations in our life.

They are often linked together and form part of a journey. This super blood blue moon eclipse links back to 2017 and the eclipses in February and August.

It’s worth trying to reflect on our feelings and emotions during 22 August 2017 because whatever happened then, is now going to be worked out and put behind us.

This super blood moon offers healing and the start of a new sixth-month chapter. To this, we need to let go of any negative thoughts and emotions. We need to forgive ourselves and any others so we can move forward and manifest the life we want.

Use 31 January to:

  • let go of negative thoughts about yourself and others
  • write down what you want to happen over the next six months
  • trust, whatever happens, is going to be the best thing for you
