Once the Full Moon is illuminating the sky, so begins the 2nd half of the lunar cycle. It’s a beautiful time of release and letting go as the moon wanes back into her darkness. Sometimes this release is an active fulfilling process that feels like celebration or revelation- and sometimes it feels like inaction, like surrender.
The terms “Let Go” and “Release” are commonly associated with the full moon, and it’s because the this is the point in the lunar cycle from which she begins to wane and move into darkness. She’s evolving, letting go of her light, moving into the darkness, and allowing the cycle to come to completion.
To know what kind of self care YOU need right now, you have to look at what activities help you let go? Let go of stress, let go of control, let go of expectations. Sometimes this could be dancing your socks off, or a sweaty vinyasa class. It could also look like journalling about what’s been going on in your life, meditating, or taking that luxurious bath with epsom salts.
It doesn’t have to be extreme, as long as the efforts are intentional.
