Full Moon: Celestial Harvest•
Posted on August 10 2018
Welcome to another chapter in the journey through the Moon Phases. As you already know, the moon has a power that you might not have been aware of. Each moon phase is perfect for a specific objective in your life. In each moon phase, the moon grows. Or in other terms, you get to see more of the moon thanks to the position of the moon and sun. As the moon shines over us with the new moon light, the seedlings of a new beginning in our life are set. And now, we have reached the full moon phase, where you can harvest the fruits of the seedlings you planted.
Two weeks after the New Moon, we’ve reached the half and the peak of the cycle: the moment when what has been unfolding until now is being fully realized. The bold moonlight brings to surface our progress from the past two weeks and, in a more general sense, from the past 6 months, since the New Moon that took place in this Full Moon’s sign.
The Moon is now opposite the Sun, with the Earth in the middle. The light of spirit fully illuminates our deepest emotions, patterns, and habits: it’s difficult to swipe them under the rug as we usually do. It's a momentum. This is what the Full Moon craze is all about- we can’t hide our instinctual side anymore. The Full Moon sign reveals to us the archetype whose wild side we can embody, from untamed Aries to deeply emotional Pisces. The Sun-Moon opposition can highlight extremes and conflicts in our inner being and in our lives, as Sol’s conscious intent can bump heads with the Moon’s unnamed instincts.
Depending on how things have been working out for us, be it through personal effort, divine inspiration or ideally both, this is either a time of celebration or of reconsideration. Either way, it can get intense. Try not to put yourself down for what has passed- if possible, postpone any self-critique tendencies for when the Full Moon passes, your head clears again and you can look back at the situation with more calm.
