According to astrologers, during Full Moons, our emotions get amplified and magnified. The powerful energy of the Moon has a direct influence on one’s emotions and feelings. This means that those of you who may be feeling frustrated or irritated during the period may experience these feelings more intensely. On the other hand, those of you who may be feeling positive and happy will likely feel more ecstatic. By seizing the correct opportunities, you can make the most of this energetic period.
Full Moons have been associated with times for creative outpourings, and a boost in energy. People tend to behave differently during a Full Moon, often even contradicting how they would normally behave. This sudden increase in impulsive behaviors and mood swings can often cause stress in individuals. However, if you can learn to keep your emotions in check, you will simultaneously be able to manage your behaviors and keep your stress to a minimum.
For those of you who can get a good handle on your emotions, the Full Moon can be a great opportunity for your emotional and even your spiritual growth.
The influence of the Moon lasts for two days before and after the sighting of the Full Moon. Here are some suggestions on how to make the most of the Moon’s influence-
Avoid arguments and try to reduce negative thoughts- During the Full Moon, it is best to stay calm, and not let the small things bother you. Practice deep-breathing and meditation if you find yourself getting irritated or frustrated.
Try to think positive thoughts- By adopting a positive attitude, you can make good use of the amplified energy of the Moon. A good way to maintain an optimistic outlook is by practicing some gratitude and, possibly, listing down a few things in your life that you are thankful for.
Practice manifestation techniques- Visualise your goals and dreams coming true, spend some time imagining your goals and writing down what needs to be done in order for you to achieve your dream. Make a creative visual-board and keep adding motivational quotes and pictures to keep yourself encouraged.
Meditate and do yoga- Since Full Moons can be quite an emotional time, another healthy way to keep yourself calm and collected is by performing yoga and taking out time during the day to meditate. Not only does meditation relaxes the body and mind, but it can also re-energize you and refresh you. You can even connect with like-minded people and go for a yoga class or practice meditation in a group!
Sitting under the Moonlight can also help you become more mindful. By ‘bathing-in’ the moonlight and meditating under the Full Moon, you can become more aware of your thoughts and feelings. You can even gain more insight into your subconscious mind.
