I always love the energy of the full moon – well … almost always. Sometimes it gets a bit intense, which is why I ask people that tune into moon energy to let me know, in advance … what to be mindful of. I’m one of those types of people that would rather have awareness ahead of time … than not … so … Here is some great info for this month’s FULL MOON by Melissa Corter – Enjoy – SDJ ♥
March 20th 2019 Full Moon in Libra
A Full Moon in Libra, during Mercury Retrograde might have you feeling a little on edge; do not let the energy fool you, it is a powerful and mystical time, ripe with opportunities to cultivate deep inner peace. Regardless of what is happening externally, you are the master of your inner world and can shift from uncertainty to feeling balanced and focused. Become a witness to your environment, and commit to aligning with empowered and uplifting vibrations.
Mercury goes Retrograde about three times per year; basically, Mercury will be going in reverse. Right before and during Mercury retrograde many people go into fear; believing the next few weeks will be hell … in communication, technology, and life in general. This does not have to be YOUR story, in fact, Mercury retrograde can be extremely beneficial and insightful if you are open and ready to work through the hidden layers of your soul’s personal journey. You can actually feel empowered during Mercury Retrograde.
Mercury Retrograde invokes unnecessary fear and anxiety in many people, when it is an opportunity during this time to invest energy into the areas you wish to harmonize with while employing your tools of well-being. Meditate, rest, revisit beliefs, and focus on appreciation for the energy moving beneath the surface of conscious awareness. Libra strives for harmony, balance, and clarity rooted in powerful positive intention.
Air signs such as Libra are known for having powerful mental energy; this Full Moon can tap into this quality if seen with a grounded and clear mind. Meditation and balance bring this into view, otherwise you may feel scattered and unsure of your own decisions. Deep breathing coupled with meditation will calm the mind to help you bypass the mental confusion.
March’s Full Moon is also known as the Full Worm Moon. As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter. (Farmer’s Almanac)
As with all Full Moons, including and most notably those falling within a Mercury Retrograde period, releasing is a key experience offered within the Full Moon phase. Manifestations come to fruition, dreams birthed, and ideas having a solid foundation or form to them. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the Full Moon energy, ask your higher self to help you find your own rhythm within the experience.
“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.”
~Wayne W. Dyer
Tips for March 20th Full Moon in Libra:
Take advantage of this auspicious time, the veils between worlds are thinnest during a Full Moon, and there is tremendous potential to shift old habits and dissolve self-defeating patterns. You may feel as if you are discovering something for the first time; when in truth your intuition has lifted the veil for you to see and know more clearly. Trust this guidance and insight, yet be mindful of any emotions that may get entangled in the process; this is likely the mind making a “story” of the information versus the intuitive impression the higher self was inviting you to know.
Let this Moon serve you to find balance and harmony within, and to invoke the magic of releasing to create space for something new to manifest during the next Full Moon phase. You are surrounded by divine intelligence and a universal field of consciousness; the Full Moon provides a window in to retrieve the pieces that align for you and to thank, honor, and release the ones that no longer fit yet held an important role in your journey.
Ways you can allow this Full Moon to support you:
- Find out when the moon rise is in your city by going here: http://www.timeanddate.com/moon/
- Find a place where you can see or sense the energy of the full moon. Preferably a comfortable position with the moon in sight. If you can sit outside, on the earth for this exercise you may notice a larger shift.
- Have your journal, or a piece of paper and writing instrument nearby. The full moon is the feminine aspect of our being, she can help release and reveal all things ready to find a way to the surface.
- Begin with closed eyes, focusing on breathing deeply, releasing any tension or worry for the body and energy field. Bring your internal attention to the world “appreciation”, repeat this word like a mantra as you get lost in your breath.
- Start pulling images and thoughts of appreciation into your mind, choosing to see everything as a miracle. Stay present to this…. Breathing, and focusing on everything that floats through your mind, breathing deeply for a cycle of 10 to 20 breaths.
- Write about your experience in your journal, was there something that popped up that surprised you? How does it feel to open up to appreciation in this way?
- If you find yourself releasing…. you may safely burn your paper to honor the transition and release.
**Reminder: each full moon will impact you for up to 3 days prior to the full moon and 3 days after the full moon.
Full moons are always powerful times for releasing and letting go. Try creating your own ceremony or honoring of this time to embrace the energy that this time has to help you create space in your life for what you truly desire. As always remember, you are not alone in experiencing this phase, be mindful of this when encountering others over these next few days. Send them love as they are also shining a light on themselves and may be extra sensitive during this time. The next full moon is in the sign of Libra on April 19th and is known as the Full Pink Moon.
