We watch the planets and the moon to speak to our hearts and help us to ground us in all that’s happening in our lives. This time it’s so much bigger. This time we look for guidance and to connect within to our inner knowing. The practice of aligning with the rhythmic cycle of the universe is medicine to the soul.
By becoming aware of the cycles of the moon and how they affect both personally AND societally is a small step on the path to wholeness and connection.
Today we are greeted by a Full Moon Lunar in Sagittarius which is the first in a series of three. A Full Moon is heightened and charged up but an eclipse is that much more so. It’s when the earth, sun and moon are in alignment. We’re currently in the middle of a high retrograde season already encouraging us to slow down, reassess life and call in powerful transformations. Get ready for an awakening!
This is an awakening on a global and personal level to all that has been in the shadows and to the imbalances across systems and our own limited realities. This process is painful but powerful. It’s up to us to feel empowered to move to action and not fall to victimization.
“Our collective lens has focalized on the experience of our black brothers, sisters and relatives that continue to be subjected to racism rooted in white supremacy and abuse that has been systematically allowed to perpetuate. Our expanding realizations are transforming into bridges of solidarity and action calls to the ways we can each proactively participate in the active dismantling of the oppressive systems that we consciously or unconsciously maintain.” - Mystic Mama
It’s time to expand and evolve. Use the Sagittarian energy to stir up positive change and reinvent new ways to support our life here on earth for everyone.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
We officially entered eclipse season where energy is charged, emotions are HIGH, and there are deep, deep layers. This Full Moon rests in independent and strong-willed Sagittarius.
This is a powerful moment in our history. We can use this lunar event to turn into our intuition in order to listen to what’s on our hearts and feel confident in what we need to share. When we’re able to tap into our inner knowing we open up space for so much expansion and evolution.
This moon is giving us permission to fully meet our shadows and we move through this momentous time in history and become part of the global awakening. Let’s raise the vibration of the collective.
Perform a Full Moon Practice
In order to listen to our intuition and connect to the deep insight, we need to be in a place of openness and ease. With the heavy stress we are facing, our nervous systems are completely thrown off so it’s important to rely on practices like breathwork and meditation to help slow down and soften so you can LISTEN.
Try out this check-in practice on your own:
- Gather a pen and journal, candle and matches, card deck (optional), crystals, and tea.
- Sit or lie down comfortably
- Take three deep, grounding BREATHS
- Place a hand on your heart or on your belly and list everything you’re grateful for - go for as vast or as few as you would like
- Write down in your journal 1-2 things you’re currently feeling
- Write or speak in your mind your INTENTION for this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
