It's May and the full moon is near. This month's full moon is named the Flower moon. It is also a Super moon and a blood moon, with a lunar eclipse. Ok, I know that is a lot, and we are still learning about astrology and how all this affects us.
Let's just stick with what we know. The moon affects the tides of the oceans. We have the same percentage of water in our body's system, as the world's percentage of water. Like the saying goes, as above, so below, as above, so below, as the universe, so the soul. It gets pretty trippy when we examine this statement on deep levels all around us and within.
Most people hear that full moons bring out the crazy people. Although this is true, it is only a partial truth. Full moons affect everyone. It amplifies their personality. Not just the crazies, but also the loving, the funny, the characters, the mad, the cranky. Whatever you are, it just amplifies it 100-fold. Many people are very sensitive to the full moon. Some people get headaches, and stay in and isolate themselves, others may get amped up and want to run around and cause mischief. Some may want to dance, some may lay in bed all day.
Here are some things to do to help with full moon effects.
meditate to ease the mind and get clear with yourself.
Drink plenty of water, as the moon rises the oceans, it also raises the water within us
Set intentions for the upcoming month after
Sleep more / or sleepless (Everyone is different, get to know your body)
Go easy on yourself
Ground yourself, Walk in nature
Stare into a candle in the early mornings and evenings.
Just remember Full Moons are here to teach us, and also a good time to let go of the old, and come into a new. So really listen to your body and your needs.
One thing to remember is that there is a 3-day effect to full moons. The feelings start to taper 3 days before and taper down 3 days after. So it's good to time your experiences. Good or Bad, pay attention to your body and emotions. If they are pleasant, then time out events t advance yourself, if they are not pleasant, then time out your events to avoid them. Just pay attention to your own needs, and lean into your own experiences.
