Understanding Full Moons
Each lunar month reaches a climax at the time of the Full Moon, two weeks after the New Moon. It’s hard to miss a full moon unless it’s very overcast, and even if we can’t see a full moon, many people experience more heightened emotions and energies.
Clarity Point Each Month
Full Moons help us see what’s coming to fruition in the lunar month. We get more awareness of layers of thoughts and where the soul is headed. The ‘seeds planted’ at the New Moon are now seedlings to see. Do we like what’s growing? Full Moons help us see next steps and adjust our perspectives, intentions and actions.
Can a Full Moon be an Eclipse or Supermoon?
Yes. An eclipse at a full moon is called a Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses and supermoons increase the intensity of the full moon they happen with. (See table below for dates.)
When a full moon is also a supermoon it looks larger than the average-sized full moon and has greater effects on the ocean’s tides as well as the ‘tides’ of waters/fluids in our bodies, including lymphatic fluids, cerebrospinal fluids (brain & spinal column), blood serum and the cytoplasm of every cell within our being.
Your Star Sign’s Once-a-Year Full Moon
Because there are 12 zodiac signs and at least 12 (sometimes 13) full moons every year, each star sign tends to get a full moon each year. Let’s say you’re an Aries, once-a-year there’s a Full Moon in Aries, which has messages from the soul for Aries. The once-a-year full moons have individual messages, depending on where the full moon is in your birth chart. For more information, check out Your Annual Full Moon Oracle MP3.
