What Everyone Ought To Know About Working With The Lunar Cycle
Updated: May 31, 2022
Looking to the moon is an ancient, spiritual practice. The moon being the feminine energy of the universe, it gives us a powerful tool to use within our personal and professional lives.
Working with the lunar cycle, gives us a twice monthly opportunity to turn inwards, harness our intuition, focus on changes we need to make and the chance to gain clarity on what we really want in our lives.
The word month actually originates from the word moon, so starting to work within the moon’s magical cycle can be like your very own cosmic timer.
Once you become aware of each approaching moon phase you can start to draw upon the moon’s magic by doing the same simple actions every month. For instance, a new moon is the perfect time for setting intentions and over a full moon it’s a great time to celebrate what you have achieved and look back at anything that didn’t quite work for you.
In today’s overly productive world, we’ve forgotten that there is a time to grow and a time to rest. A time for high energy and a time to pause, be still and reflect. Just look at the moon, it doesn’t always shine, it rests. In order to be your fullest and brightest you have to retreat, say no and rest.
You might not be in a position to take a full day’s holiday but if you know when the new moon and full moon are occurring then you can plan ahead and carve out time in your diary to be alone, set intentions, have a long bath, or take a stroll under the moonlight.
The more time we invest in looking to the moon and letting her teach us how to be reflective and turn inwards, the more we will learn to listen to those inner nudges or little niggles that we often get and can ignore! Those inner nudges our important as that is our inner knowing, our intuition, asking us to listen.
The less you listen, the quieter the voice becomes and the smaller you could become. However, the more you listen, the louder it will become and the more you will start to trust your intuition and no longer need external opinions and validations. You will become brave and be able to let go of things that don’t serve you. You will find your deep inner knowing.
I would love to teach you about the lunar cycle and help you use it in practical ways going forward in your life. If you are interested, I offer a Moon Alignment Session, which is an hour’s chat with myself over zoom where we have a chat about what’s going on with you currently and then I give you the tools you need to move forward and start using Moon Magic in your day-to-day life. If you would like to have a monthly catch up to go over anything again or remind yourself of what’s coming up in the lunar cycle, I offer follow up sessions too.
I really love working with the lunar cycle and have found it incredibly useful both personally and professionally - so why not give it a go!!
