The moon reaches Apogee 2 hours and 59 minutes after reaching fullness. This moon is referred to as the Wolf Full Moon being the first of the new year. For the Full Moon we harvest the power of Cancer. As Cancer deals with emotions and how we feel our way through life it is all about relationships. As the Moon moves from Gemini (of the twins) to Cancer it is about how to relate to one another. As emotions are already beginning to surface these triggers in us may not even be about the person at all. We have the opportunity to look internally here at our own relationship with yourself first. As it's being centered and balanced which then allows opportunity for growth. Eventually we observe all these shifts and changes with awareness of the limits so emotions are just part of the experience. Aware of the limitations that may still be in place here. When we are unaware of our Self our Soul Self, our Truth is when there are limitations, the need to control and categorize. Once we have acceptance in our Truth, is when everything falls into place. It then creates space to opening move forward in relationships.
This Full Moon also brings the energy of a portal of expansion from January 14-18. This expansion is about relationships, as much of what I have received from source has been about this topic. Also why many have been asking various questions referring to relationships. We are now more so than ever mirrors to our relationships. Much of the journey before has been about learning and mastering our self our gifts. Now as we shift this is now how we relate to others. As our expansion now is about how we relate to others in this journey also and also those who are not. This is all forms of relationships: family, friends, co-workers, and romantic ones as well. Our soul is remembering and awaking more with these interactions. Even when we get triggered by the not so pleasant kind of experiences these also aid in our expansion.
I have read and will use this term as well the New Relationship Paradigm as this really resonates. I have noticed even now I have been interacting with all has really began to shift. I no longer am pleasing everyone who asks things of me. It's knowing where your level of Self-Mastery is and when you need to create a boundary for yourself (for that particular time) when someone asks a task of you.
In all that I have been asked, the odd behaviors are still showing unbalance and still trying to reach self-mastery. For when you are aware True Source of Self just radiates out of you. The vibrations just match up without any effort at all. You have to be balanced and know what path you are to walk before, the vibrational match in a partner will come to you. In this time of the moon energy we are expanding further into this. After a while there are no more questions it just is. Be mindful of people who wish to understand all the new points in your life. Observe how they are, how they question, how they speak.
As always whatever theme you have chosen for your 2014 in my case compassion + love with the Cancer Moon energy is already proving to be very powerful. Walking your truth, and being aware in this Awakening.
Full Moon Release Ritual
2. Create a sacred space, preferably outdoors or near a window for the Moon light to shine in. Create an alter of sorts with items, crystals etc.
3. Cleanse your area with the sage, incense.
4. Light candles, invite your guides, angels, teachers to be at your side while you are releasing these things from you. To aid in this release.
5. Sit and focus on your breath (drink tea if this helps you calm down) get in a meditative calm state. Feel yourself rooted and grounded in.
6. When you feel ready write down on the paper one by one emotions and feelings you wish to release, (prior write "I release" or "I let go of" minus the quotes of course on your own) as I talked about before it's the time of letting go those small things which have crept up in us since the new year began. If you still feel lingering of the old, release these too. Write each on it's own piece of paper (cutting/tearing each individually from each other). Also write things to release for others you care for. Of course all is for the greater good which you release these things.
7. In your lighted candle or flame read aloud each paper before burning it in the fire. Do this for each piece of paper you have created.
8. When you are completed cleanse your space again to release any lingering energy. Thank your guides and angels for their presence. You may sit and meditate here if you'd wish.
When you are complete blow out the flame. And so it is. This is a time of remembering yes we may feel alone as we are realizing we are all sovereign beings. The path is one of strength. For we are all sovereign yes which our angels and guides now are leaving us to explore on our own while they are ever present if we need to call upon them.
Happy Full Moon! New Padma Bella creations coming! The Universe has made me take a step back several times from completing these things. So I am listening and taking it as it comes. I will link at the bottom of this once I do complete the updated website. As well as the other creative projects. So grateful for all your support =)
