FULL MOON

LUNAR ECLIPSE







Blood Moon
Wednesday, April 15th, Libra, 12:42 am PSD

With each passing moment energies are mounting. If you are sensitive then you have been feeling this months Full Moon coming since mid last week - or perhaps even earlier. We are hours away from the Moon reaching its maximum fullness, as well as the Lunar Eclipse which will occur early in the morning of the 15th. If you would like to read more about the eclipse, and how and when to see it, you can here. I will be up to watch it!

As far as how this is all effecting us energetically it's a powerful and emotional time. All around me this past week, and especially over the weekend, I have noticed in myself and in others a deep deep sadness surfacing, one that seems very old. Almost so old that everyone keeps saying, "I'm not sure why I am feeling this" or "why is this coming up for me, I thought I dealt with this?". I really think it is sadness that has been buried, and forgotten, and is surfacing so that it can be healed. Maybe it's even a sadness that is not ours, but one we have been carrying around from our linage. I feel it is the powerful energy of this Full Moon and Eclipse that is pulling that energy up to be looked at. Ask yourself, what about this feels familiar? Is this something I have felt before? Is this something I have been carrying around for a long time? Am I ready to let it go? Whatever little bits of sadness that we haven't dealt with are showing up and testing us. How will you approach these feelings with the knowledge and wisdom from all that you have experienced and learned? It is a time where you need to trust yourself, and trust that you are prepared to heal these wounds, and seeing them for what they are - old energy. Instead of feeling weighed down by this task lean more towards having gratitude for the opportunity this resurfacing is giving you to heal.

Use your creativity to transform it. Don't shy away from these feelings that are coming up, although they are difficult and overwhelming, they are rich material from which to create! Use it! Write, draw, dance, sing, plant a garden! Also - have a good cry. Don't underestimate the power of tears. I think crying is one of the most transformative and creative acts. I also think it is a great way to move that energy and allow yourself to dive into those feelings. Just don't get stuck in it, make sure every act you are making is one that is in service to movement, moving and transforming the energy. And be gentle and kind to yourself and others right now. We are all extra sensitive and going through a lot. It's a perfect time to practice compassion and self-love.
