Learning to live my life in accordance with the energy of the Moon was a game-changer for me.
She is powerful. She is beautiful. She is magical, AND she is in love with each and every one of us.
An Enchantress ~ to be revered!
She controls the ebb and flow of the tides, the menstrual cycles of Her human goddesses, and has a profound effect on the moods of all of creation. If you take all of this into consideration, it is easy to see that She is a highly valued tool for our magickal workings.
We experience a full Moon when the Earth is caught between the Moon and the Sun. Her energy is never more intense than during this phase of Her cycle.
The energy put out by a full Moon will work for all spells. However, it is a time of fulfillment, completion, and coming together. In light of this, it is recommended that you work your spells in a way which aligns with that energy.
For instance ...
if you want to lose weight, casting a spell for that on a full Moon may not be fruitful. Losing weight is a ‘falling away’ process, and the full Moon carries a ‘building up’ energy. However, you can certainly cast spells designed to increase will-power, bring clarification concerning which foods are right for you, work toward learning to eat according to the seasons, or strengthen your resolve in the area of exercise.
You get it, right?
Take Her energy and use it to assert things in your life that you want to grow.
Also use Her energy to bring those things in your life which are in the process of growing to completion. Completion is a full Moon specialty. Her greatest attribute.
She has an affinity toward activity, increasing psychic ability, perfecting ideas, healing, celebrations, protection, completing projects, and family/friends coming together. These are ideal ways to use Her to enhance your life 😉
While Her energy carries a very positive connotation and can be used to produce a plethora of extraordinary things in ones life, She often brings feelings of unrest and turmoil to we humans on the day She arises.
For several days before and after Her rising, She brings me sleepless nights, anxiety, and depression. AND it seems that if anything unpleasant (or worse) is to happen, it occurs within days of Her full-faced, illuminated, glorious presence as well.
This used to make it difficult to focus on the positive influence which Her presence imparts to my life. I would fold under Her power and lose the opportunity to use it to manifest my desires.
So remember, the energy that rises as She presents Herself in her full glory is strong! It may have an adverse effect on you. You may find it difficult to focus on your magickal work. And that’s okay! There are witches throughout the world feeling exactly the same as you are.
However, DO PERSEVERE!
You will develop your own unique ways of coping with Her influence, and the rewards you will reap from harnessing Her power and utilizing it in your spellwork are well worth the effort.
If you push through just a few times, you will find that it gets easier and easier. Not because the influence of Her power becomes more manageable, but because you grow to understand just how viable it is. You begin to crave the opportunity to work with it in your manifestation efforts.
Bottom line ~ Your work pays off!
It will help you a great deal to simply recognize that you are being affected by Her presence, know that as She begins to wane (get smaller) you will experience some relief, and take every opportunity you can squeeze in to admire her glory!
She is an incredibly stunning being. She is never-changing. AND Her manifestation skills are unmatched.
Pay homage to this glorious being my lovely Witches! She will serve you well. She is one of our faithful Ancient Allies.
