Thoughts on spirituality: Sometimes it’s the Full Moon

When was the last time you stopped and looked up at the sky? Yes, I’m entirely into observing the moon cycles and astrology in general. Ever since I was a child, I always sat on the veranda gazing at the moon and wondered about celestial mysteries. Now, I know and understand that whilst some would rather stick to trusting what their feet could feel on the ground, I was destined to awaken, explore the metaphysical, and find my purpose. The air around the new moon is exciting too, and of course, the new moon is just as important; however, I had always felt connected and resonant to the energy around each full moon. Sometimes it’s light or fun, but most times the energy leading up to the full moon is intense and chaotic, which makes it excruciating. If you’re a spiritual alchemist, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Each full moon is the midpoint and climax of the lunar cycle, during which the moon is opposite to the sun in the zodiac and is therefore fully illuminated by its light. Hence the intense energy! 

The days or even weeks leading up to a full moon, you may start to feel certain emotions boiling closer to the surface. Depending on the zodiac sign that the full moon is settled in within your natal chart, this energy will affect various areas in your life that require special attention. This will be the things that you need to nurture, re-evaluate, cleanse or release since the full moon brings projects, relationships and processes to a tipping point. Usually, it is a good idea to practise journaling, meditate or even have a relaxing bath- in general, any activity that is conducive to your mental, spiritual or emotional strength and endurance. Whatever you decide to do, ensure that you’re in a safe space. This is a time to reflect and harvest off the seeds you’ve planted in life or to shed thoughts, people and situations that no longer serve you. You may cry or just roll around in hysteric laughter, everyone is unique. If you would like to know more about the full moons or to dabble in a general astrology reading, just type in Full Moon readings on Youtube and pick a reader who resonates with you.

The upcoming full moon is in the sign of Taurus, which is rather unique and exciting because it falls on Halloween (31st October)! In general, this will impact the areas in your life relating to money. So you’re more likely to overspend on your budget and dip into your savings, or you may end up striking good fortune. Regardless, it’s good to be conscious about your finances and be grateful for your blessings. At the very least, look up at the sky and enjoy the illuminated beauty!

Happy Full Moon xo
