Dance with Lady Luna

Dance with Lady Luna

There are many old wives’ tales about people going mad when the Moon is full and the word ‘lunacy’ is no coincidence.

 

One of the effects of the Moon on the surface of our planet can be observed in relation to tidal levels. The Moon influences water and in the same way, it influences the watery aspects of our bodies (our emotions), since our bodies are made up of around 70-80% water.

 

For centuries, it has been known by many that the full Moon in particular affects people’s consciousness and behaviour. Have you ever laid awake at night when the Moon is full and felt so full of energy that you could not sleep, despite feeling exhausted when you went to bed? This can be noticed for around three days before full Moon and one day after.

 

Now there is scientific evidence to explain why this happens. NASA-supported scientists have realised that something does happen every month when the Moon passes through Earth's magnetic tail.

 

"Earth's magnetotail extends well beyond the orbit of the Moon and, once a month, the Moon orbits through it," says Tim Stubbs, a University of Maryland scientist working at the Goddard Space Flight Center. "This can have consequences ranging from lunar 'dust storms' to electrostatic discharges."

 

"If the Moon is full, it is inside the magnetotail," says Stubbs. "The Moon enters the magnetotail three days before it is full and takes about six days to cross and exit on the other side."

 

Human consciousness is made up of electrical activity and a magnetic aura – a field of energy. This energy field can be measured with an electro encephalograph. Some people are sensitive enough to see or feel these energy fields. When the Moon is in the magnetotail of the Earth, it ‘charges’ up and exerts a greater influence on our consciousness.

 

So, the Moon interacts with the Earth’s magnetic field. Incidentally, the Moon itself is thought to emit magnetic energy. Further, the Moon has been spiritually linked to women, whose energy tends to be inward-focused and magnetic, whereas the Sun has been spiritually linked to men, whose energy tends to be outward-focussed and electric. Astrology teaches us that each of the planets, the Sun and the Moon, as well as other celestial bodies such as asteroids, have an influence on our consciousness and emotions. These celestial bodies communicate with and influence each other by the transfer of electrical and magnetic energy. Energy can also be called consciousness and since we are all linked via a collective consciousness – a universal energy grid – it follows that movements in the grid will be felt by the various fractals within it.

 

Anyway, I digress…

 

Back to Lady Luna and her dance through our skies. I have explained why it is thought that the Full Moon affects us. It is not just the full Moon that affects us; the rest of the phases do too. You may already know the various phases of the Moon but if you don’t you will have surely noticed that throughout each month she shows more or less of her beautiful shining face. When the Moon is ‘new’, she is known as the dark moon, because she is invisible. She then steadily shows more of her face and as she appears to grow bigger, this is called ‘waxing’. When she is at her biggest and shiniest, she is ‘full’. Then she gets smaller, which is called ‘waning’, until she is ‘new’ again.

 

The various phases of our lovely Lady Luna, in order, are as follows:

 

New

Waxing Crescent

Waxing Quarter

Waxing Gibbous

Full Moon

Waning Gibbous

Waning Quarter

Waning Crescent

New

 

As the Moon waxes and wanes, so too will your energy. I tend to become more introspective as the Moon wanes and I prefer solitude, peace and quiet. With the waxing of the Moon, my energy increases and I become more extrovert, sociable and active.

 

You can learn to capitalise on the energy of the Moon by aligning yourself with its phases. In magickal terms, the New Moon is the perfect time to set new intentions and plant the seeds for what you will manifest over the new lunar cycle. As the Moon waxes you can use your increased energy to start and finish projects to achieve your goals then as it wanes, you can reflect, rest and release. By release, I mean cutting out from your life all that no longer serves you. For example, when the Moon is waning I find this is a good time to have a de-clutter of your home, your head or to do journaling; when it is waxing, I throw myself into achieving all of the important tasks that I need to get done. When the Moon is full, intuition and psychic abilities are strong and so this is a good time for divination and other magickal works.

 

By observing the Moon and its effect on your feelings and behaviour, you can become more aligned with the cosmic energy and harness its power as a force for good in your life. You will also learn to be more kind and forgiving to yourself when you don’t really feel like doing much, or when you feel a bit crazy.

 

Watch Lady Luna dance, and dance with her )O(

 

In Munay,

Lara.

  • I really enjoyed reading this Lara. I had a rough idea of the moon cycles prior but this helped fine tune that knowledge and encouraged me to pay closer attention to myself during various moon cycles. There are times when I'm a little less patient and perhaps I have found the culprit ;-)
