We are soon to approach a powerful lunar eclipse. This is when the sun momentarily blocks the illumination that creates a full moon, this one being in Taurus on the 19th November.
Because of this short lived block, energetically it creates a reset in our emotions, giving space for the shadow to reveal what is deeply hidden in our subconscious or keeping us from seeing clearly, these are the emotions that we have repressed that our conscious self has decided not to deal with which in turn can create these blocks.
As we all know the moon represents our deep emotional tides, our inner illuminations and so when a shadow passes over the moon, this illumination is temporarily ceased giving way for us to reveal and transform our current emotional state.
Lunar Eclipses offer us the opportunity for great transformation, think of it as a deep clear out, a shift that can sometimes bring about an abrupt or sudden change. It is remembering that this is Universal guidance and with this you can generally trust the direction that you are being guided in.
This is a time to reflect upon your life, what you need to let go of, to forgive in order to immerse into the grander cosmic plan.
It is the space where great things can happen.
How can we do this?
We are offered the opportunity at the full moon to release attachments and blocks. These are barriers that stop us from stepping into our authentic self, that affect our sense of worthiness and hinder us being able to fully receive. The full moon amplifies the energy of whatever is current at the moment so take time to tap into what is present in your mind, your emotions and feelings that you would like to let go of.
1.You can do this by creating a few moments of stillness, lighting a candle, having a pen and paper at hand.
2.Sit quietly, taking in 3 long deep breaths in and out through the nose and closing your eyes or lowering your gaze.
3.Place your left hand on your belly and ask “what do I feel I need to change or release?” take a moment and wait for any insights.
4.Move your hand then to just below your ribcage and ask the question “what negative emotions are on my mind at the moment that I wish to release?”
5.Take a moment to gain insights.
6.Taking in 3 long deep breaths again, then open your eyes and streamline your insights into an intention of release and change.
7.You can now use the energy of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse by lighting the paper, please ensure you have a safe terracotta container to put it in, preferably outside and engage in the energy of release that this potent lunar cycle gives and usher in changes anew.
Traditionally Moonstone is a wonderful crystal to integrate into your Moon practices as it has a strong alignment with all things lunar. It is very feminine and intuitive, showing you the way ahead.
It is also known for ‘new beginnings’, encouraging inner growth and strength. When starting fresh, this stone is purported to also soothe those uneasy feelings of stress and instability so you’re able to move forward successfully.
You can place moonstone on your altar/sacred space at the time of the full moon or hold in your hand to meditate.
NB Please note that the full moon lunar eclipse is NOT a full moon under which to charge your crystals.
