What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery.”~Thomas Merton
Have your emotions been all over the place in the past few days? Having trouble sleeping? Are events of the past rolling around in your head as if they happened yesterday? If so, you are not alone and you can blame it on tonight’s Full Super Moon!
A Super Moon is a moon which appears larger and brighter because it’s orbit is closer to the earth than usual. In 2014 there are actually 5 Super Moons. We experienced two Super Moons (New Moons) in January and tonight is the first of THREE full moon Super Moons. The next two FULL Super Moons will occur on August 10th and September 9th and those will appear even brighter (the August 10th full moon being the brightest) than tonight’s!
What does this mean for you? Full moons are the gifts of illumination and reflection. Your emotions are heightened, intuition is strong and whether you like it or not, past pain will light up and be reflected back to you during a full moon phase. If you resist, it can be a painful time OR you can consider it a gift and gently acknowledge and release old wounds.
Keep in mind that since this is the first of the three Super Moons, what you don’t clear in the next few days will have to be dealt with in August or September when the moon will be closer to the earth, more powerful and even brighter! The August and September full moons will truly be “in your face” so take time to reflect and release what’s coming up now instead of being literally “forced” to look in the months to come.
The power of the sun, the moon and the planets is here to support your growth not hinder it. The more you allow yourself to “go with the flow” by using these astrological events to your advantage, the easier it is to move through them.
As the moon moves closer to the earth, it reminds us there does not have to be an “abyss” that separates us from ourselves. What we reflect upon when the darkness is illuminated is one of our most important voyages of discovery. Use this beautiful Super Moon, and the ones to come, to reflect and release.~Shine Your Light Debbie
