The Full Moon

What happens at the full Moon?:
The Full Moon is a culmination, a peak, and many people notice a spike in exuberance and activity at this time. The Sun and Moon are in opposite signs, and the qualities of both signs in which they fall are lit up with a current running between them.
What are some ways to engage with the Full Moon?: If you've set intentions on the new Moon, the full Moon is the time for releasing them out to spirit. You might like to meditate on the new Moon intentions as the Moon grows brighter, adding power to them with your focus. The waxing Moon is a building up of energy, and a great time to cultivate something new in your life.
How does this work exactly?:
The key to working with planetary energies is understanding that you're a part of it all, too. As the Sun and Moon move through the signs, a forcefield of energy is cast down, engaging with your own unique astrological blueprint. In other words, "May the force be with you," and may you also Be with the force.
Staying intimately connected to this cosmic dance allows you to tune into subtle shifts and changes. Our intuitive selves experience these through dream images, spirit guidance, and soul yearnings. You go beyond awareness of your known self, so you can experience your spirit self and its possibilities.
What are intentions?: Intentions are like wishes you send out, but you've got to take an active part in making them happen. You can call it a prayer, too. Whether we know it or not, we all have intentions, sometimes unconcious, that shape our experience. When you set intentions consciously, it makes you more present to the moment, able to jump on opportunities, cultivate contacts, and recognize divine serendipity.
Preparing for the full Moon.: Each full Moon has a different intuitive feel, and any ritual you do could draw on the essence of the sign. As it approaches, you might gather photos, found objects, meaningful totems and place them with your intentions in a prominent place.
Time to Celebrate: The full Moon often casts an exuberant vibe, making it a great time to have a party. This also opens the door for meaningful people to step into your life. But keep in mind that it can be intense, too. There's a reason why more patrolmen are sent out on full Moons! Take time to honor yourself in some way for any steps you took since the new Moon.
