Full moons typically happen once each month, and they are very powerful. Depending on what sign the moon is in, we’re pulled all over the place.
The full moon is something that helps us in big ways. It is a period of gratitude and growth that we all need. While it may only last one night, the energies that come with it follow us for a couple of weeks.
Mind Body Green wrote as follows on the energies this kind of thing brings forth:
Humans have been living by lunar cycles for centuries, and in our modern world, connecting to these energies can give us a sense of grounding and synergy with the earth and cosmos.
While the new moon is a time to set intentions for the future and launch new projects, the full moon is a time of culmination and fruition. Starting with the “dark” phase of the new moon, the lunar surface gathers light over a two-week period, then manifests as a full moon. When the moon is completely full, it’s a spiritual and energetic pinnacle of whatever you started when the sun and the moon united at the new moon.
Not only are full moons pretty, but they are also able to help ground us. The more aware we are of the energies at hand, the better we can accomplish things as time continues to pass. The full moon is a period of reflection and will help you get to know yourself in big ways.
Diving into the things the full moon has to offer is never a bad thing. We should be embracing this kind of thing and what it brings forth. You never realize how much you need the growth before you until you’re where you need to be.
