The sun and moon’s opposition makes for a sacred balance with effects that can be felt here on Earth. The rays of the moon affect human beings, as our bodies consist of 70% water animals, plants, and the tides.
Around each new moon and full moon, the sun, Earth, and moon arrange themselves more or less along a line in space. Then the pull on the tides increases, because the gravity of the sun reinforces the moon’s gravity. In fact, the height of the average solar tide is about 50 percent of the average lunar tide.
Our moon, being the closest celestial body to Earth, has grandiose effects on all living things on our planet. Our Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence Earth’s tides and the water within our bodies – arousing our emotions, behaviours and our consciousness.
The full moon is said to heighten the activity of the mind, amplifying conscious thoughts as well as pulling sub-conscious thoughts to the surface into the conscious mind.
The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego. It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression. The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.
The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past.
Meditating during full moon has been recommended from long ago, which can help us harness the magnifying effects of the full moon for greater spiritual activities and helping the mother earth.
At The Yoga Creative we arrange monthly events to bring a small group together to Meditate during the full moon energies. This provides an opportunity to connect deeply with both the community but most importantly our inner wisdom and with nature.
We invite our teaching community to attend, please book in advance to secure your space.
