It’s a New Year and another wild moondance...✨💃🌙
If you’re like me, you’re feeling both excited and a little on edge…enthusiastic for what the year will bring. On Friday, January 6 at 6:07 p.m. ET/3:07 p.m. PT the Full Wolf Moon will rise in Cancer, the water sign ruled by the intuitive moon herself!
Having this Full Moon activate right in the middle of both Mars and Mercury Retrograde could add some challenges. You may find it hard to move forward and emotions may run high. Cancer moons stir up the waters enabling one to get to the heart of their emotions but that retrograde energy will encourage us to move slowly, go within and reflect. Is there something that is hindering the manifestation of your dreams? 2023 is a 7 year in numerology….and it is all about spirituality, my loves! The energy of a 7-year pushes one to seek wisdom and truth, focusing on change and evolution.
This January, both the year and the crab invite us to turn within. The number 7 appears in many areas and is also associated with magical properties. There are 7 major chakras…in the Tarot the Chariot is the 7 card of the Major Arcana and there are four 7s for each of the four suits (cups, pentacles, swords, and wands) ...in Hinduism there are 7 higher worlds as well as 7 underworlds…and finally, in Buddhism the newborn Buddha rises and takes 7 steps.
Under the guidance of the moon and stars, this 7 year will help us look honestly and deeply at our inner and outer worlds and the way we can manifest what we want and need. We have been talking about changing our world for months. It is time to stop talking and time to create that new world. Italians have a phrase “dolce far niente”, the sweetness of doing nothing.
Relaxing into that sweetness allows one to dream, accelerates healing and can deepen the mind-spirit connection. We honor the Winter Goddesses as well during this full moon. Hecate and Persephone, are all part of the cycles of the seasons, representing the time of stillness where we go within to nurture the seeds of our dreams. There are always lessons in the darkest shadows, we just need to shine a light and see what we find. That soul searching shadow work can be scary, but where we end up is worth it…
Sit in a comfortable position & slowly become aware of the space between your eyebrows. Within this space, visualize a full moon in a clear night sky, shining on the waves of the ocean. Picture the reflection of the moon penetrating the deep waters, the light catching the waves as they dance. Visualize the image in your mind’s eye and allow the feelings and inspirations to permeate you r mind and body. When ready to leave the meditation, simply open your eyes and give thanks to the Goddess Luna.
