As we enter the last quarter of 2020 we are invited to a very special Full Moon.
As we know Moon energy is always an intense and gravitational time, giving us an opportunity to access valuable energy to either release (Full Moon energy) or manifest (New Moon energy). If you are not tuning into the energies provided over these times you are not tuning into life’s natural rhythms and cycles that are gifted to us for creating & healing.
From ancient times tribes have gathered under the moon in rituals and ceremonies as they prepared for honouring these sacred energies. A Full Moon was always a time of harvest, it was a time of celebrating what was gathered from seeds planted during the new moon. Moon cycles come in 6 month cycles. So what was planted 6 months ago in the last New Moon in Aries is now being harvested in this Full Moon. So if we think back to that time it was actually during the start of the Corona lockdown. Most people were locked inside, scared and unsure of what was to come. For some of us this was a time of spiritual awakening, where you had the time and space to visit the deeper aspects of ourselves as Carl Jung would call “the shadow”. The shadow is referred to being the darkest aspects of ourselves that we often reject or simply cannot see.
Moon energy is always related to the shadow, it is our feminine and watery nature. It is connected to our intuition, our dreams, healing and emotions. Full Moon energy invites us to let go and to bring things into completion. Mostly it asks us to surrender and release what no longer serves us.
So think back to this time in April and try to remember what you were planting? How were you feeling during this time? Because whatever it was, it is time to complete the process, to fully let go, surrender and release. With it also being the first day of October, it is asking for us to begin again.
Aries is also the first sign in the Zodiac. It is the first point, the initiator. Aries is the warrior and the protector of the tribe and each other. Aries knows what it would die for, so order to become this warrior, you need to understand;
What it is you value?
What are you not choosing to face?
What is needing your protection?
Chiron is travelling with this moon cycle. Chiron is referred to the great Shaman, the great healer. When these two energies come together, healing occurs. Chiron is often referred to as the wounded healer. This means that it represents our greatest’s wounds. Our wounds are also our shadows. Our shadows are programmed to look for flaws in the outside world, in society, in people. When a flaw is discovered it becomes the seed for an entire world view and a whole story is built up in the mind. So every time you judge, every time you see flaws, this is your shadow communicating to you on what needs to be healed within you. It is the side that we often deny, we cannot see it within ourselves so our experience is showing these traits in others hoping that we will then claim it within ourselves.
When we choose to stop and face it, we win a life-long battle, one that we have been fighting forever. Now is the time to face it. So go out to the moon, sit under the stars, be the most transparent you have ever been and admit what it is you are scared of, what it is that you judge and ask for help to release it. Allow yourself to feel it, let the energy show itself and flow freely through your body.
Know it takes great courage to do this, but the energy of this moon is demanding that it is time to bring out your spiritual warrior and you have Aries here to help you do that.
Now is the time to bring in any Deities that you wish to work with.
The energy of Green Tara is the perfect one to help with this.
Green Tara is called on by the Balinese for removing obstacles and taking action. She is used to face fear and insecurity.
The Mantra: Om tare tuttare ture soha” which helps us to have compassion for these deeper aspects of ourselves. Knowing that by recognising and honouring them, allows us to grow and expand.
All you have to do is call her name and see will come to help. She is the person to turn to in a crisis, she is compassion in action and as soon as you recite her mantra she is there with you.
Listen to this Mantra under the Moon as you ask Green Tara to help you release, release, release so that you can embark on a new beginning, one where you are no longer in a battle with yourself. You become this inner warrior, no longer fearful, you face your greatest wounds and allow yourself to heal.
Have a transformative and healing Full Moon
