I know you are reading this and there would be some of you out there saying how the hell is the moon a foundation. Not only is it huge but it totally is a love as well... let's talk about this.
I love astrology but I am a complete utter novice and I wish to be a superstar on this subject, do courses, talk to experts and read a tonne of books but until I get to that I will have to love what I know.
As a soldier during field exercises I would love when it was a big fat full moon because I have shit night vision and I could not see and the bigger the moon was the better I could move around at night. I know I have ended up in other peoples sleeping areas honestly because I got lost but this is not why I love the moon so much as a soldier.
I don't think I even need to talk about when I was a sailor and the magic of standing on the deck and seeing a moon. It felt like being under a spell.
Nowadays when it comes to following the moon for me I know each phase means something different is happening for me, it helps me understand what I am feeling and thinking. We all know the full moon and celebration but what about new moon and resetting. I love to know where she is and what phase she is in. I make sense of what is going on for me and how I can work with her by looking at the phase so I know whether to reset or breathe or take action.
I have some wonderful artistic cards from Moonlogy that I place on my desk and it is that little visual reminder of the phases just like if you were looking at a calender to remind you what day it is.
With the full moon I light a fire and I write down everything that has bothered me, no one gets to see if but I rip it up and I put it in the fire, I farewell it, it is gone and I don’t have to hold onto it any longer nor carry it around this is the most freeing thing that I have started to practice because I honestly feel if things go wrong for me to come full moon that shit is going to burn. After my fire, I take the ashes and I sprinkle them around my garden, my yard is so grounding and I feel like whatever the concerns were have disappeared and we are all being grounded together – clean slate-style feeling good and centred. I know the Full moon is a celebration and you don't need to be a moon lover to do this, many places have full moon parties during this phase. My animals are always a little crazy and honestly, so are we - lunar (lunatic).
Come new moon this is similar in my full moon where I go into manifesting basically I am asking the new moon as it is new beginnings for all the things that I desire and want to create in this next phase. It is writing out and visualising having those things and this is wonderful for me as I get a fresh manifest list each month. Even if I think about something during the moon cycle I know new moon time I can just ask for it. I have managed to manifest some amazing things into my life just from this practice alone
Now I know that new and full moon are not a daily foundation but it is knowing where the moon is at and what are good days and bad days – I guess I am talking about the energy that it is creating and from that I can plan out my months, when to have that meeting, when to have a rest day and I work with the moon to carve out my diary and work with it instead of against it. I seek help from professionals whilst having a learner plate on. One of my favourites is Soulshine Astrology. I really connect with all that is put out by her and I do get a lot of my information from her as well.
This being my most enjoyable foundation I even hosted a dream dinner under a full moon this year for my circle. It was amazing. So worth celebrating.
