FIRST FULL MOON OF 2017 (FULL WOLF MOON)
The full moon of January 2017 is blazing brightly in the skies tonight (Jan. 11). The moon technically reaches its full phase tomorrow morning (Jan. 12) , but skywatchers can get an eyeful of an apparently full lunar orb both tonight and tomorrow night. … Thus, the name for January’s full moon.
During the full moon it is a powerful time of letting go and releasing things that no longer serve you, what you no longer need in your life or an opportunity to let go of an aspect of yourself you have outgrown. The full moon energy is powerful and intense ~especially after your New Moon Intentions 2 weeks ago. A perfect time to take action; purge, unburden yourself of any fears of change, a relationship/job/plan and the energy attached to it, the belief you are not good enough, worrying about money or searching for answers externally rather than going within.
Fire and water are great symbolic ways of purifying.
Fire – consumes, burns away the old
Water – cleanses, washes away
A Full Moon Release Ritual
What you need: pen, paper, matches, candle, two small bowls, water
If possible do this outside under the Full Moon, connecting directly with Mother Nature and the Moon’s energies.
If you cannot be outside, find a quiet place indoors.
Clear your energy. Imagine standing under a silver waterfall and allow all negative and non-serving energies to be washed away.
Create a sacred space. Find a quiet place to sit, declutter and clean, place crystals or other special items around you.
Light the candle, fill one small bowl with water – place both in front of you, along with the other empty bowl.
Take a few deep breaths, centre yourself and then begin to write on the piece of paper what you wish to release from your life, what limiting beliefs you want to be free from, what no longer serves you or what you want to let go of.
When you have finished your list, sign and date the page.
Breathe deep into your heart and declare “I now let this go. And it is so.”
Then place one corner of the piece of paper over the candle allowing the flame to light your page (throw the page into the empty bowl as it burns) watching the flames consume what you are releasing, the smoke taking your intention to the Universe.
Please note: if your piece of paper struggles to light or burn, please consider if you are really ready to let this go! Only when you are willing to let go will the page burn – the faster the flames, the more willing you are to let it go.
Then place your hands in the bowl of water. Signifying cleansing of the old and opening to the new.
Remove your hands from the water and take a deep breath. Sit in silence for a moment. You may want to keep your candle burning for a while as you sit, allowing inspiration to spark.
This is only a suggestion of a ritual. Use your intuition to guide you. You may just want to sit with a lit candle and not burn your page. You may want to have a shower or jump into the ocean as part of a cleansing ritual. You may want to meditate on what to let go of rather than write it down.
Go with what works for you and what you feel comfortable with. It all comes down to intention. As long as your stay centered in why you are doing things in a certain way, the results will follow as you intended them to.
Today, I am sharing from the Intuitive Astrology: November New Moon 2016. This New Moon energy is very exciting and know we all could grow and learn from this information. I love the New Moon practice and understanding what cycles we are in makes it even more powerful. Astrology is aspect of intuitiveness and understanding I have great respect for.
Out of the ashes and into the light, this New Moon is going to be helping us to think bigger and open our hearts to a new wave of positive and abundant energy.
The New Moon represents the starting of a new cycle. The last New Moon fell in the watery, intuitive sign of Scorpio. In this cycle we were all encouraged by the Universe to dig deep and uncover hidden emotions in order to release them.
November brings a new cycle however, which will kick into gear on the Sagittarius New Moon, which falls on the 29th. If Scorpio energy was beckoning us to go into the darkness within, Sagittarius energy is going to be beckoning us to stretch out into the light.
We have spent enough time in the darkness and in the shadows and now it is time to re-emerge into the light and start expanding our views and opening our hearts.
November’s New Moon is going to be sending waves of energy that will allows us to see things from a higher perspective and will open our awareness to new realms and new waves of thinking.
Sagittarius energy is electric, positive and most importantly, open minded and all of this energy is going to be on offer to us if we tune into it.
The Sagittarius New Moon is also going to trigger a cycle of awakening. In many ways, we are going to feel reborn and replenished after a long and hard year of cleaning out the metaphorical closets.
2016 has been a year of endings and now we are starting to wind down with the endings so we can make way for the new.
The November New Moon is going to be supporting this cause and it is likely that new and exciting opportunities may emerge around this time, almost like the Universe is offering us a gift.
The Sagittarius New Moon is also going to shift our awareness away from what we have let go of and onto where we are now.
In fact, this New Moon energy is going to be helping us to reflect and celebrate just how far we have come and just how much we have achieved. We all deserve to honor, thank and nourish our souls for the last 11 months.
The New Moon is also going to be highlighting our creative potential to manifest and go after what it is that we really desire.
If there is something that you want to achieve, if there is something you want to change in your life, this New Moon is the perfect time to put plans into place.
This New Moon is going to support you to think bigger, to be optimistic and to focus your attention on the best possible outcome. Aim high and go big on this New Moon, because that Sagittarius arrow is going to be helping you to hit your mark.
The November New Moon is also supercharged for romance and love. If you are single, this New Moon could bring about the perfect opportunity to meet someone special.
If you are in a relationship, bonds may be strengthened or weaknesses may emerge so you can heal and strengthen them for the future.
Soulmate energy is also high around this New Moon, so it is likely that we are going to have a lot more people making Soulmate connections during this time.
On a global level, this is going to help raise the vibration surrounding love, partnership and communication.
Soulmates don’t have to just be romantic; Soulmates can be anyone that comes into your life to awaken and stir your soul.
Under the cycle of this New Moon, pay attention to people you meet or to any synchronistic messages that may be delivered, as you may just be receiving a message that your soul needs to hear.
This New Moon is also going to be amplifying intuitive and Divine energy as well. The right opportunities may line up for you, or you may receive a powerful message from the Universe or your Spirit team.
In fact, spirit energy is going to be high under this New Moon and much more accessible for those who are interested in tuning in.
On a final note, the November New Moon has a very positive and upbeat energy to it. If you have been feeling low, this New Moon may just give you the boost you have been looking for.
Embrace this energy, stay open minded, open your heart and watch what flies in. All that you have been working so hard for this year is now coming to fruition under this Moon cycle, so celebrate and enjoy it. You have earned it!
Super Moon November 14, 2016 is the closest the moon has been since 1948 and will return 2034. So, what better time than now to kick off our own personal full moon rituals?
Do A Quick Cleanse
Cleansing rituals are always useful, but they’re particularly relevant to the Mourning Moon, the last full moon before the winter months. Tradition holds that, at this time of year, we should let go of anything that doesn’t serve us — a bad habit, a difficult relationship, or needless grief. That way, when the year comes to an end in a matter of months, we’re already free from anything that was holding us back.
Just Go Outside
Though it might not be as balmy as it was back in June, going outside (and not just doing it for the ‘gram) during a full moon can still do wonders for your mindset. Some people suggest moon-bathing by taking a stroll around your favourite park or neighbourhood, you should be able to feel the renewing effects of the moon.
Charge Your Crystals
The full moon has major regenerative effects on healing crystals of all kinds. Think of it as an engine tune-up — leave your stones out overnight where the moonlight can touch them, whether outside or on a windowsill, and by morning their energetic properties will be renewed and realigned. Don’t worry about charging all of your crystals if you’ve amassed a bit of a collection, but it’s recommended that you make sure to charge any you use regularly.
Get To Manifesting
As we’ve discussed previously, full moons afford a natural opportunity to look inward and determine what you need most at this moment. Whether you spend the night journaling or meditating, the moonlight will lend a greater sense of clarity to your thoughts. Now is a perfect time to think about yourself apart from everything else that’s going on around you — in doing that, you’ll know better how to proceed. Reflect, set a plan, and see it through.
