During the lead up to the “Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse” of January 2019, last month’s blog suggested observing any changes in your energy that you previously haven’t given thought to, and provided a number of “energy coping mechanisms”, e.g. calling on the energy that is all around us, putting yourself in a bubble and using intention to change your mindset and I do hope you have found them useful.
It’s a relief to be able to say that harnessing the strong energy of the Wolf Moon gave me the nudge I needed to complete and submit my tax return and rather than being super charged, the energy was more one of pushing myself to get all the jobs done. As we head towards the New Moon on 4 February though, I've noticed my energy dropping to such an extent that “I couldn’t rip a tissue”, a saying from Stu Francis on the children’s television programme Crackerjack, although his saying was “I could rip a tissue”, whereas at the moment I couldn’t!
We all have times in our lives when our energy takes a nose dive, but rather than get frustrated with our bodies, treat it as an opportunity to press the pause button and to look within. The waning of the moon is a perfect time to step inside ourselves and take some time out to have a good look around. Have we been side-tracked from working towards achieving our dreams - has our passion been lost in the daily routine of life? Does the flame in a relationship need re-kindling? Years ago a friend told me that the ocean bed is full of nutrients, so when you're going through a period of reflection, take time out in your mind to absorb what’s down there before you float back up.
On February 5th, we are moving into the year of the Earth Boar / Pig in Chinese Astrology, a year that will help you stabilise your energies and nurture your home. At this end of the calendar cycle it is an opportunity to take a well earned break and reflect on the past 11 years.
Tuesday, 19 February is the next full moon, with headlines from The Express : “Supermoon 2019: Moon to put on a STAGGERING display in February as HUGE full moon rises”. Countryliving.com report that “the moon is likely to look slightly larger and brighter than usual, affording us all a glimpse with the naked eye. And there's no need to stay up late because February's Supermoon is set to rise to the east around sunset (3:53pm in the UK) setting towards the west around sunrise.
February's full moon has been known as a Full Snow Moon for thousands of years, but also goes by the name of Hunger Moon and Storm Moon. Ancient civilisations, such as the native Americans, tracked the changing seasons by the lunar months rather than the solar calendar, naming them after features they associated with the northern hemisphere seasons. In February, this meant heavy snowfall and difficult hunting conditions. These names are now used to identify the full moons.
The Full Snow Moon is the second of three Supermoons we'll witness this year. March's Supermoon is particularly special. The Full Worm Moon, or Full Harvest Moon as it's known in the south hemisphere, will occur on 20th March, during the Spring Equinox.”
Have a good month and if you have any feedback you would like to give, we would love to hear from you.
