Full Moon

“Turn to the spiritual meaning of the moon phases to connect to the rhythms and cycles outside of the frantic pace of modern living.

As life moves increasingly online and away from nature, it is becoming more important to turn to the spiritual meaning of the moon phases as a way to connect to rhythms and cycles outside of the often frantic pace of modern living.

It’s easy to become unmoored in an era of zoom meetings, remote work, and the constant onslaught of social media. Tapping into the cycles of nature can be a potent reminder that there are powerful forces that continue on, even as change swirls around you. If you live in a city, it can feel difficult to feel that connection, but the moon is always in the sky. Turn to the spiritual meaning of moon phases as a source of connection to something deeper.

Each moon phase brings its own spiritual meaning and the opportunity to create rituals and practices that harness the energy of that unique phase.

Full Moon: Savor Your Life

There is a kind of radiant glory in the full moon. The showiest of the phases, it’s likely the moon phase that is most known for having a spiritual meaning. Often considered a time to celebrate and savor everything you have created with the waxing moon, you might find that the full moon brings a feeling of intensity, and you might notice you are more emotionally reactive and overwhelmed during this point in the lunar cycle.

The full moon is a potent time for rituals. Create a ritual that celebrates the small and large ways you are grateful for what is in your life right now, just as it is. Let your celebration take a form that supports you just as you are. That might mean getting a massage, having a party, or going for that hike that you’ve been wanting to go on, possibly under the full moon with friends.”
