The full moon occurs when it is opposite the sun and it is fully illuminated by the sun’s light. The Sun, Earth, and the Moon are aligned – in that order. So, from our view here on Earth, we are literally, between the energy of the Sun and the energy of the moon. This time provides us with an opportunity to balance lunar and solar, Yin and Yang, and masculine and feminine. No wonder the full moon is associated with energized emotions, feelings, and mind stuff.
We can work with these energies by celebrating our accomplishments from the previous cycle, seeking connection to those with shared purpose and intention, and setting intentions for the new cycle.
