In the past week – during the waxing gibbous moon – I was able to tackle a few of the decluttering projects I had recommended (kitchen and bathroom) in an earlier post, and I’m glad I did!
Intuition may have been at play: after I made the recommendation, we discovered some issues in our bathroom that will require major – and imminent – repairs. There is now far less to move out in preparation for new fixtures and fittings!
Now I’m ready for the Full Moon (in Pisces) on August 29th (11:35 AM PDT). It is also a Super Moon! If you’re wondering what is “Super” about this Full Moon, it’s quite simple. In astronomical terms, it means the moon is “in perigee” or orbiting closer to the Earth than it normally does.
We have three Super Moons in 2015:
- Full moon of August 29 at 18:35 UTC
- Full moon of September 28 at 2:50 UTC
- Full moon of October 27 at 12:05 UTC
For those who are sensitive to the Moon’s cycles, you may have an even stronger connection at this time, especially with water element correspondences. Your creativity may flourish… your compassion may increase… your intuition may be heightened.
This is a perfect time for spiritual reflection and being open to guidance, healing and transformation.
The symbol of Pisces – two fish swimming in different directions – also reminds us that we may experience emotional upheaval during this time, or may feel as though we are pulled it different directions. So, it is also a reminder that it is important to stay “buoyant”, to “go with the flow” and – like water – follow the path of least effort. Do not make things difficult for your Self!
For your Full Moon ritual this month, consider building your altar using the water element in its different forms and using the colours of the sea (blues, greens, translucent):
- places – consider holding your ritual near a water element (lake, stream, pond, sea, fountain, spring
- candles – blue, green, white
- crystals – amethyst, lapis lazuli, sodalite, turquoise, blue tourmaline, blue lace agate, opal
- herbs and flowers – irises, rosemary, sage, water lilies, or plants which hold a lot of water (aloe, cactus, lettuce greens), seaweed, kelp
- a cup, chalice or cauldron filled with distilled or purified water
- elements representing the sea such as shells, sea grass, beach stones
