The Moon cycles provide valuable insights into our emotional state and the intentions we are manifesting in our lives. There are times, such as the New Moon when we seed our desires, and other times, such as the Full Moon, when we harvest those wishes we sow, whether we are aware of it or not.
The more we synchronize with the cycles of the Moon, the easier it is to fulfill our longings and get aligned to our highest self. Everything you have been undergoing during the whole month comes to its maximum potential during the Full Moon. It is a time to pause and reflect before embarking on a new project, a time to let go of what no longer serves you and prepare for a new cycle.
Here are ten things you should (and should not) do during the Full Moon:
Clear your mind and physical space: The Full Moon brings purification and cleansing effects to our overall system. Therefore, it is an excellent opportunity to purge your mind of clutter, put an end to dragging projects, and tidy up your home.
Consider smoking your room with sandalwood, taking a long salt bath, and throwing away those objects that are taking up valuable space in your life.
Charge and clean your crystals: The powerful force of the Full Moon renews environmental energies, so it is the ideal time to recharge your crystals and remove any negative vibes they may have absorbed.
You can put them in your window all night long, and they will be completely restored in the morning.
Meditate: Meditation is not only an effective method to reduce anxiety. It helps you tap into your intuition and make decisions based on your spiritual purpose and not on your ego’s whims.
Meditating during the full moon will make you more conscious about the projects you are embarking on, ensuring a more meaningful journey in the upcoming cycle.
Release your energy: The built-up emotional energy of the month is more evident during a Full Moon.
Try going to your backyard or a quiet park, taking off your shoes, and shaking your body around to transfer that energy to the ground.
Cut out unhealthy habits: The Full Moon invites you to pause and reflect on your current circumstances. What relationships, patterns, or behaviors do you still hold on to but don’t serve your greater purpose?
It is time to cut them off and release the emotional baggage you have been carrying around.
Update your wish list: This is a great time to reflect on the goals you set a few weeks ago and review whether you achieved them or need to update them.
You don’t need to establish new goals, as there will soon be a time for that. Just make sure you cross off those things you no longer want to pursue.
Rest: Make sure you get enough sleep and take your time with your duties. The Full Moon stirs even the deepest of emotions, and you are likely to be more sensitive than usual.
Relax and don’t push yourself too hard to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
Do not undertake new projects: Some people feel inspired and highly energized during the Full Moon. If this is your case, resist the urge to embark on new projects, try new experiences, or make crucial decisions.
Focus on wrapping up any ongoing processes and wait a few weeks before putting all your energy into breaking new ground.
Don’t panic!: Keep in mind that your emotions will be peaking during the Full Moon, which can make you overreact to tiny nuances that didn’t bother you before.
Just remember that this is a temporary state, and everyone is going through the same process! This will spare you from unnecessary dramas that will bring no benefit to your life.
Avoid making rash decisions: During the Full Moon, our judgment is clouded, as if we were drunk. We feel excited, sensitive, and ready to make impulsive decisions that we will later regret.
Hold your horses for a few days before committing to process the information correctly.
