How to work with the Full & New Moon


Guest blog post by Jane from The - Crystalised.

Our Moon emanates frequencies that are powerful enough to influence Earth’s tides and even our water within our bodies – arousing our emotions, behaviors, and our consciousness.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries, and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, it enables us to learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our true selves.

What is the New Moon?

During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, we cannot see the moon side that faces Earth as it is not illuminated. 

Both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign during a New Moon… giving an exponential boost or concentration of energy.

The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals, or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle.  In the darkness, this is fertile ground for you to plant the seeds of your desires on the New Moon, consciously focusing on creating the feeling you want to attract.

It is the perfect time to consider sitting in ceremony or personal meditation and writing down your intentions & inner-most heartfelt manifestations for the new lunar cycle.  After your ceremony, place your handwritten manifestations desires on your personal crystal altar or bedside table or even under your pillow and watch your dreams unfold before your eyes.

What is the Full Moon?

During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun, fully illuminated by the light of the Sun. Hence the Moon & Sun are on opposite sides of the zodiac during a Full Moon… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential.

The energy of a Full Moon heightens our emotions, feelings, thought processes, and dreams which are all amplified at this time.  When the Sun & Moon oppose each other during a Full Moon, this can cause tension, yes, but at the same time, this is a great opportunity to harness these energies to amplify our vision & potential possibility. 

The Full Moon is a great time to ‘bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon, light a Yougi candle, and spend some time in meditation. As you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your heart & expand the beauty of the present moment and as you breathe out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release.  

It is also a great time to come together with others, in ceremony, most Full Moon ceremonies,  have candles at their heart as the candle reflects the element of fire which is so important when we are wanting to release what is not serving us.  I also LOVE placing my crystals out under the Full Moon to cleanse their crystalline structures and infuse them with reflected solar vibrations.

To join a moon ceremony join www.the-crystalised.co.uk who meet at each new & full moon.

I can also personally recommend Yogi candles, their scents and beautiful soft candlelight is perfect for reflection and connection during these parts of the moon cycle.

Much love Jane xx
