Understanding Full Moons
Our lunar months reach 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 sensations in their bodies, minds, emotions and energies.
The Climax of Your Lunar Month
Full Moons help us see what is coming to fruition – in our thoughts, wishes, health, energy, core needs and in our love relationships, soul desires and deepest success cravings. The ‘seeds planted’ at the New Moon are now shooting up for us to see. What is culminating? Do we like what’s going on? Full Moons help us see the next steps to take 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 Full Moons they happen with. (See table below for dates.)
When a Full Moon is also a Supermoon it looks larger than the average-sized Full Moons through the year and has greater effects on the tides and also on the ‘tides’ of waters/fluids in our bodies, including our blood serum, lymphatic fluids, cerebrospinal fluids (brain & spinal column) and the cytoplasm of every cell within our being.
Your Star Sign’s Once-a-Year Full Moon
Every star sign gets one special Full Moon a year. This happens because there are 12 zodiac signs and at least 12 (sometimes 13) full moons every year (one per month). Let’s say you’re an Aries, once-a-year there’s a Full Moon in Aries, which has special messages from the soul for Aries. Any forecasts you read of your star sign’s annual full moon are likely to have a level of resonance, yet the once-a-year full moons actually have very individual messages for each person, which is why I created ‘Your Annual Full Moon Oracle MP3’.
