“Spiritual progress is like detoxification. Things have to come up in order to be released. Once we have asked to be healed, then our unhealed places are forced to the surface.”~ Marianne Williamson
Nothing like a Friday the 13th full moon while mercury is in retrograde to stir things up! The good news is that you have a rare opportunity to harness the energies at hand and really clear out those places you’ve been feeling stuck
The powerful energy of a full moon gives us the opportunity to illuminate what was once in darkness. Friday the 13th reminds us to face our fears and illusions. Mercury Retrograde asks us to reflect on what we are seeing and together those forces invite us to re-group, let go and re-charge.
All full moons are packed with power and people handle this intense energy in different ways. It’s no coincidence (or surprise) that people go a little crazy during a full moon and since it falls on Friday the 13th superstition will run rampant.
In the past week if you been feeling “buzzy”, unsettled, you’ve had trouble sleeping, experienced vivid (or lucid) dreams, or you feel overwhelmed it is most certainly the energy of the full moon. Just as the full moon illuminates the night sky, so too it lights up and magnifies energies you’re working on releasing so you can move forward. If you take time to ground and set your intentions she will help you gain clarity by illuminating your path and direction. A full moon can turn your world upside down or give you a boost forward. It all depends on if you resist or go with the flow of the energy.
A full moon during mercury retrograde is a positive force which helps “light up” those areas of your subconscious that have up until now been in darkness. A full moon amplifies energy and since mercury retrograde brings a “re-visiting” of energies we are working on releasing you may feel like everything is “larger than life”. There has never been a better time to un-plug, reflect, re-group.
Once you’ve “detoxified” you must fill up. Full moons have the power to illuminate but they are also filled with energy. The moon invites us to transform by using her energy to re-charge. Allow the moon energies to fill you up just as you would use the energy of the sun. In fact it’s a wonderful idea to use both the energy of the sun AND moon in harmony and balance.
Breathe in peace and power and balance. Breathe in certainty, enthusiasm and joy. Set new intentions and re-energize yourself and your dreams. Re-charge and breathe new life into your life. Use this Friday the 13th Full Moon to illuminate and help you face your fears and illusions. Use Mercury Retrograde to reflect, re-group and recharge. You won’t have another opportunity for this particular alignment until the year 2049. No time like the present to balance and re-engage.~Shine Your Light Debbie
