I write to you to inform you of an exciting event that ishappening 2morrow night May 5th at about 8:35pm MST (11:35 EST). And that is that the full moon forthis month is coming! Whats special about this particular full moon is that itwill be the closest full moon to the earth out of the whole year, making forquite a moon-gazing experience for the whole family! The moon will be largerand about 16x brighter than a normal full moon, meaning that its effects on ourplanet will be felt in even more intensity i.e. tides might be higher or lowerthan usual, plants might dry out or not need as much watering, animals mightact a little “loony”, babies in the womb might start “break dancing”, orlaboring mothers might have their babies quicker etc. The moon definitely has alot of influence on our lives! But thecool thing is that we as beings who are apart of, and not apart from, thisforce we call nature, can also harness this power brought down by “Mama Moon”for our benefit by doing those things at this time that may require a littleextra “umph” to get the job done.
So what do I mean by all this? Well, the moon has differentphases, the most prominent being when it is either “full “ (open) or “new”(closed). When the moon is full we say it is open because up until that pointthe waxing moon looks as if it is opening up from the dark side of the moon(almost like a lid being slowly moved from in front of a light). It is at thistime that the moon’s energy is said to be very cleansing and is able to movethings out of the way so that things can manifest themselves; so traditionallypeople do a lot of house cleaning, internal cleanses w/ herbs tonics or juices,and also taking care of old business a few days to a week before the full moonand even about 3 days after, in order to have some extra help getting the“closure” they need. At this time peoplealso pray for or welcome into their space abundance, fruitfulness, harmony,peace or whatever it is that they need (as the negative energy is beingremoved, its time to let the good energy in, right?)!
The moon itself is arepresentation of fertility which reminds us to nurture the “seeds” of thingswe want to manifest in our lives (put in work) so that later they can bebirthed into existence, which is represented by the full moon! Put in the workfor those ideas you had, dreams you had, or plans you have been putting off, sothat once the moon closes/wanes (like putting dirt over a freshly planted seed)your plans/ideas will have the energy behind them to manifest as you continueyour work with the re-opening of the next full moon (this is a great way to setgoals for yourself)!
As for planting (for real), all during the darkness of themoon (waning) plant those things that grow above ground i.e. flowers,flowering plants, leafy greens, peppers,tomatoes etc…why you ask? Because duringthe waning or new moon (dark moon) water is being pulled below ground (thatmeans nutrients are going with it to the roots, which is perfect for a newseed), the second reason is so that the full moons energy can help bring upthese above ground plants and make them big, strong and extra nutritious! Yum!
So, my family I ask that you take advantage of this specialfull moon, that will be upon us by 8:35pm MST, by observing, cleansing, andworking within the fabulous energies that will be surrounding us all thisweekend! The best times to utilize any full moon are up to 1 week before toabout 3-4 days after (so don’t worry you get a new chance every month to takefull advantage)! Happy Full Moon Weekend!!!
