The Moon has an observable, gravitational force on the tides of oceans, and to a much smaller extent, in large lakes, the atmosphere, and within the solid crust of the earth. It has the same pull on the human body as we are seventy per cent liquid, with a subtle magnetic energy body. Everything on the earth is held down by gravity except water, which is why the moon is able to effect it and create these tidal dynamics, essential to our lives. This effect is called tractive force. Aligning with the lunar phases is a partially forgotten and natural art, coming back into modern consciousness due to the growing need to re-establish kinship with the earth. The more we live in tune with the lunar cycles, the more we see how they effect our lives, emotions, health and creativity, as we move with the currents instead of against them.
The NEW MOON Phase is when it is in conjunction with the Sun and looks almost invisible from earth. It is a time for aligning with passions and desires, a time of calling in what you wish to manifest.
The FULL MOON occurs when the Moon is illuminated from the Earth and in opposition with the Sun. It urges us to look at our shadow self and release all which no longer serves us.
In Full and New Moon Ceremonies, we will create sacred space, honor the world of Spirit through mandala meditation and symbolic mandala-making, and extend our awareness through intention, ritual and dedication.
