The moon is symbolic of feminine energy. This energy marks the tone for the day. La Luna receives the light given by the sun, which is masculine energy, and illuminates it back to us; creating the dynamic of giving and receiving that is characteristic of the masculine and feminine energies. The moon also symbolizes the inner world of the mind, what happens in the dark, the unconscious that is hidden in habitual routine. It exemplifies the inner most emotions and how they are expressed.
When the moon is full the gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak. For this reason, the tide is always high during this time. However, not only does the full moon mark the hide tide it also marks a spike in emotions, creativity and powerful intuition. During this day our subconscious minds can tend to run rampant. If you have been suppressing emotion? This can be a dramatic time for you.The full moon emphasizes everything you've been mulling over since the new moon.
If you have been acknowledging and integrating how you feel, honoring your inner nature, you will get a an increase in harmonious energy with no big surprises. When there is an increase in emotional energy it is a powerful time to reflect, perform, make a statement, give a presentation that will grab hearts, and set intention for manifestation. If the energy that comes up for you is low vibrational, negative, focus your intent on releasing it. The true essence of the full moon is to nourish. Get outside at night and let the light shine upon you. Let that light nourish and heal your soul.
