Moon Magic

Home » Moon Magic

The moon represents the feminine, the emotional and the nurturing aspects in our lives. Many cultures and people believe in following the cycles of the moon from planting crops and harvesting, through to when they get their hair cut. The moon radiates her energy to us in the most amazing cycles of waxing and waning, bringing in and releasing, just like the tides of our oceans, constant, rhythmic and soothing.
Working with the moon energy can be as simple or complicated as you choose it to be. I will offer you some simple, yet highly effective ways to bring the moon magic into your daily life.

Eclipses

Energetically eclipses are extremely powerful times where any issues that have been hidden are brought into the light to be addressed. The energy builds for sometime before an eclipse as the tension of hidden aspects of self, or world events are rattled to come to the surface. The changes that happen are often felt for months after the eclipse. So welcome the opportunity to release, understand and forgive as these eclipses come to help us in 2012.

Solar Eclipses in 2016

A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth and directly blocks the light of the sun. These create wonderful energetics to work with, bringing deeper issues into the light.

2016 Mercury Retrograde Dates

In 2016, Mercury performs its retrograde as follows

Here are the dates:

  • January 5th to 25th
  • April 28th to May 22
  • August 30th to September 22
  • December 19th to January 8 2017

Mercury is the planet that governs communications, electronics, travel, contracts, big purchases etc., So when it is in retrograde, which means it ‘appears’ to travel backwards in its cycle, we are often confronted with issues and challenges with the issues it governs. Sometimes people become fearful however it is a wonderful time to have more awareness, to check all things, to make sure you have clear communication, to back up computers and if signing contracts, go over them a few times.

Moon Phases

Phases of the Moon

New Moon

The new moon, the very first crescent you see in the sky, is a time of renewal. A powerful time to set your intentions for what you want to ‘bring in’ to your life. There is a sense of re-charging and an energy of new possibilities.

Waxing Moon

(First Quarter) A waxing moon is when a grows (increases in size) each evening to a full moon.

Full Moon

The full moon is a time to release what no longer serves you, or what you no longer need in your life or an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown.

Waning Moon

(Last Quarter) A “waning” moon is when the full moon is reducing in size , readying itself to begin as a new moon.

“To work with this gift of nature, this cosmic force that has been honoured and celebrated throughout time by cultures all over the world, is something that is inside us all just waiting to be accessed.”

New Moon Ritual

To create a new moon ritual or as I like to call it you own sacred space of intention, find a quiet moment or place or maybe visit a place in nature that you connect to.

Light a candle

Light a stick of incense

Breathe into your heart space

Take a few deep slow breaths and ask your inner guidance for clarity

Take a few deep slow breaths and ask your inner guidance for clarity-then begin to write down on paper what you wish to release from your life, what no longer serves you, what you would like to be free from.

signatureWhen you finish writing, complete the document with ‘AND IT IS SO’ and sign it with the days date and your signature

When you finish writing, complete the document with ‘AND IT IS SO’ and sign it with the day’s date and your signature.Take a moment to hold to your heart for the clearest intention, you then burn it, watching the smoke rise to the universe taking your intentions with it.

For the following weeks, you hold the intention of what you want to bring in.

For the following few weeks, know that your intentions have been heard and answered.

Other great things to do with the Full Moon

  1. cleanse your crystals
  2. make essences
  3. sit under the fullmoon as you would in the sun
  4. allow yourself to do some journaling or automatic writing

As with everything I do and believe in, it all comes down to intention. I have only offered you a simple way to connect to a sacred part of you if you wish to work with the moon phases. You know yourself best and what works for you, follow your own intuition and instincts when working with the moon energy as it is in us already.

We just need to connect to it by giving ourselves the time and space.

A New Moon Ritual For Abundance

When we bring our focus to something, have awareness around an idea or something we wish to create, a ritual can allow us to take our desire and intention to bring that forth, much deeper.

Abundance Cheques were brought to my attention a number of years ago, and I half heartedly did them, however when I began receiving reminders to do this, I began a ritual where every month I took a few moments to connect into the abundance of the universe and to ask for the support of it. The effects are profound and I am consistently surprised and grateful for how it works.  Taking the time to write these every month is a ritual of giving yourself permission to receive in the most delightful and unexpected ways. Abundance will show it in many areas of your life.

These abundance cheques are best written within a 24 hour period after the new moon.
There is a ‘ritual’ of writing these cheques, if you do not have a cheque account, then use a piece of paper. Remember the power of intention is an incredible tool to utilise

So at the new moon and up to 24 hours after
Take a cheque,

Where the first line says……. ‘pay to”……….. write your name in full

On the next line where it says ‘ amount’……..write… “paid in Full”

Then sign the cheque ……….. ‘ The Law of Abundance”

Do not add any dates, Keep it as simple as explained.

Place the cheque in a safe place and forget about it.

Now you just allow the Universe to work it’s magic and all you need to do is be open to receive and grateful when things happen.
