I started working with the moon cycles in January 2018 following reading Yasmin Bolands book Moonology: Working with the Magic of Lunar Cycles. So now I have the new moon and full moon dates on my calendar. The more that I have been working with the moon, the more in tune I have become to my emotions. The New Moon is all about setting intentions and writing down your dreams. The Full Moon is about letting go. Cue Frozen song, Let It Go!
Tonight, Feb 19th 2019, the full moon is a supermoon, which means it is amazingly close to the earth, and is in the sign of Virgo. We are specifically going to be encouraged to let go of repetitive thoughts, over-thinking, worries, and fears of the future.
How does letting go of stuff help me?
Do you really want to harbour grudges against past exes? Do you think it is a valuable use of your time to spend resenting people from your past who have hurt you? Do you think those people deserve your fabulous energy? If you answered no then read on.
What do I have to do?
Good question! The first time you do this it might take a while. Sit at a table/desk with no distractions. Get a pen and paper. Now you are going to go back to childhood with the first one. Anyone who bullied you, your teachers, your parents, anyone you feel you need to forgive write down their names. And carry on with partners, exes, work colleagues, bosses, anyone. Anyone who has ever hurt you, that you feel resentment towards or anger. Write them all down. The first time you do this it feels quite cathartic. When you have finished you then think of 5 people in your life that you are grateful for. Then the fun bit. You take your list outside and you burn it. By doing this you are saying to the Universe I am ready to release and let go of that which no longer serves me. By creating the space within you will then allow for bigger and better things to come your way.
The next thing you will do is set your new moon intentions in 2 weeks. You have created space for better things to come in and serve you. Happy Moon Working 🙂
