In honor of the coming Full Moon, here are excerpts from a message I channeled from The Divine Feminine about the Cycles of the Moon:
We would have you look at the Moon, and understand that Moon energy is a part of every person on the earth. There’s a reason why this heavenly body is so closely aligned with what is happening on the Earth planet. One thing is that the Moon, in its travels around the Earth, affects every person on the Earth. It really touches every life on the Earth. It touches every plant that grows on the Earth. It touches all the waters. So, understanding that you are seeing the Moon and the Moon is working on you, is energizing you, but it is also having an effect on everything around you, allows you to demystify this heavenly body into something that is important in your life. It’s not just something to look at out there.
It definitely has a place in an understanding of the energies of your body, and of the planet. But those who choose not to acknowledge it will have, what we would call, “hiccups” in their life; hiccups that would cause them to move in one direction, and then have this slight veering, one way or the other, and not understand what it is that is causing that. So, we would say the best thing to do is to pay attention to these Moon energies and to accept them.
So, when you see the New Moon, for example, and you understand that that is the time, the dark of the Moon, is the time when the most feminine energy is coming to the planet, and anyone on the planet is receiving this feminine energy and the ability to be in feminine power: nurturing, supporting, offering, that kind of feminine power…
So when that energy is happening at the New Moon, you take advantage of opportunities for your creativity to be expressed.
Now what happens two weeks later at the Full Moon is that the fullness of whatever opportunities you have offered from the New Moon can now come to fruition, but also they have demands for the next level. So you have, essentially, those two weeks of the waning Moon in which to decide which parts of that you will beef up or support towards the next New Moon; which parts you need to let go of. And the other things that are in your life at Full Moon start to be illuminated. The Full Moon is the most reflection of the Sun’s energy that planet Earth receives. So, at the Full Moon time you have the light of the Sun and you have the light of the Moon hitting you at the Earth. So, what is this? This is like having a lantern, like one of your laser flashlights, to beam the light on what it is that’s going on in your life.
What is inside of you? What, energetically, do you need to proceed? What do you not need? What is it that is hampering you so that, two weeks from now when there is another opportunity for a new Moon, and an offering from the feminine side, what is it that would keep you from stepping forward? What is it that would become an anchor, a proverbial ball and chain on your ankle to prevent you from really leaping forward; really flowing forward?
And when you start to ask the question that way, it becomes very easy for you to say “I no longer need that in my life. It does not serve me if, in the course of this time, it will prevent me from moving forward the way that I need to.”
So, at the Full Moon making the decision about what it is you’re ready to release is the first step…”
Do you have the Full Moons and New Moons marked on your calendar? The energies affect us for 3 days before and 3 days after each event. Try marking this for the next month and notice how you feel around these special times.
We are Earthlings learning to live in this Solar System. Here’s to your journey with the Moon!
