The full moon – the mandala of the sky.– Tom Robbins
The Full Moon is the halfway point of the lunar cycle. It occurs when the Earth is sandwiched between the Sun and Moon in a straight line. I call it an “earthwich” for memory’s sake. She appears radiant and whole as the Sun lights up the side of the Moon’s surface that we can see.
At the Full Moon, moonbeams illuminate toxic thoughts, habits and people in your life. What stands in the way of your manifestation? Are you manifesting an outdated dream? This culmination point brings cosmic clarity so you can identify anything that’s counterproductive and release it during the waning moon phase.
Like the full-figured Mother Moon Goddess, you are ripe and overflowing with abundance. The seeds you planted at the corresponding New Moon six months ago are materializing in physical form. It’s time to celebrate and express joyful gratitude to the Universe.
As the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth to the Sun, it will fall in the opposite zodiac sign (or the sign directly across from the sun sign on the Wheel of the Zodiac). In essence, this opposite sign duo brings opposing forces into play. Emotions are pulled up to the surface. And you may feel more loony or lunatic than usual. Fear not, it’s all in service of your highest good — to help you reflect on the hard questions and any imbalances.
