What Is So Special About The Full Moon

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

The Full Moon is the peak of the moon cycle, known as a time for manifestations and gratitude.

The Full Moon is the half way point of the moon cycle.

Magic of the Full Moon

At the time of the Full Moon we are at the culmination point of the manifesting cycle. It's at this time we celebrate our achievements and find gratitude for everything we have in our lives.

This is still a time of high energy, you may notice that you have trouble sleeping and feelings of restlessness. It might be that there's still a little work to be completed this cycle, if so then use the extra energy to get things done.

Mostly this is a time for celebrating all the things you have done, achieved and manifested since the New Moon.

However, it's also a time to begin to notice where things haven't worked out and why that might be. Was it just that we didn't take action, was it external obstacles or circumstances, or was it that we had internal doubts and blocks in our manifesting process?

Astrology of the Full Moon

The Sun and the Moon are now on opposite sides of the zodiac, known as an opposition.

Oppositions can feel like a bit of a push pull of emotions. They are about finding balance, with both sides of a scale being activated. If the New Moon for you was about home life, the Full Moon will ask you if you are balancing your home life with your work life for example.

The full moon on a clear night is an amazing sight, the whole of the side of the moon we can see from Earth is illuminated.

Using the Full Moon to lean into gratitude

During a Full Moon, it is time to lean into your gratitude practice. You might want to make a gratitude list for everything in your life you are grateful for, or all the things that have happened since the New Moon that you are grateful for.

The key with gratitude is the feelings, anyone can zone out and write things down on autopilot. What is going to make your gratitude list special is feeling deeply each one of the things you write down. Allow those feelings to move through your body and mind, embodying the joy and happiness that each one brings you.

If you have found yourself coming up against obstacles, you can also make a list of things that you feel have been getting in the way. Whether those are external obstacles, negative thoughts or feelings.

This list will be important as we move forward in the cycle, so if you write it then put it to one side and return to your gratitude practice for this moon.
