STAY CALM ~ It’s just a full moon after all!
Tonight there’s another full moon and I’m ready!
Until recently, I’d never given the full moon the time of day!
That was until I’d started becoming aware of little mini “sads” that I was having on a regular basis!
These mini “sads” found me feeling very edgy, touchy and argumentative often over something so small, that the next day I would never be able to remember what it was even all about. One glass of wine would have the affect of two, and two = four, combined with the agitated mood, things tended to spiral out of control quite quickly albeit for a very short period of time.
And I never knew why!
Until someone mentioned the moon!
And not just any moon! The full moon!
And when I looked back, the dates of the full moon always coincided with the way I felt. I remember back when I worked for the emergency services, their busiest nights were always around the full moon! Hospital Emergency departments are chock a block full with patients having nervous breakdowns or suicide attempts on a full moon. Crime increases around the full moon. Relationships and divorces often increase around a full moon. Domestic violence increases. Need I go on?
Whilst the full moon can affect our mood, attitude and our sleep tonight, there are a lot of good things you can do to counteract any of these nasties. Here’s a few ideas :
WHAT TO DO ON A FULL MOON
- Get your hair cut. It will grow stronger, thicker and longer.
- Plant vegetables and flowers. They will flourish being planted on a full moon. Some say you will reap twice as much as planted any other time in the moon’s cycle.
- The full moon is the ideal time to say goodbye to anything that is not serving your higher self.
- Have a detox bath
- Rearrange your furniture
- Rearrange your wardrobe – Out with summer – In with winter
- Hit the internet for cheap travel ideas for your next holiday
- Have dinner outside and watch the moon come up
- Go for a walk and howl at the moon (or just talk)
- Have an impromptu get together with friends and party (without alcohol ~ Yes you can still have fun)
- Do a Moon Meditation (lots of good ones on the net)
- Clean out your wallet and leave it outside empty for the full moon to fill it.
If however, you are like me and “allergic” to the full moon, you might be best to make note of the following dates: 11 May, 9 June, 9 July, 8 August, 6 September, 6 October, 4 November and 4 December in your diary and hide under the covers with your own little bit of “moonshine” till it passes!
