I didn’t really know when I started that endeavor how in about a year’s time I would have a totally new relationship with tracking the lunar cycle in my life. While Lunar Abundance presents one way of looking at the lunar cycle which is using every part of the lunar phases for different expressions of growth and manifestation, that felt a little too intense and time consuming for me. I found that through creating the new and full moons each month that having a good idea of those 2 pinpoints each month was extremely helpful.
I’ve found that using the lunar cycles is a highly personal process, and that it really takes time to start to develop an idea of the way the cyclical flow works for you. Speaking for myself, New Moons are really wonderful times for new intentions and beginnings. Now that I’m more conscious of this I feel as though I can co-create with the moon to shed light onto my intentions as she gains her light, and really bring it up to this beautiful peak moment at the full moon. The full moon for me is not always this flood of energy in an active way- how I’ve heard many others describe it. At the Full moon sometimes I’m just warn out, and super emotional, and just needing to rest a bit. I like using the full moon part of the cycle for self care, tying up loose ends, and resting.
