Breathe deeply and allow this Full Moon to wash over you. In our astrological charts the moon represents the mother and where we feel most comfortable emotionally. What feels like home to you and how do you turn a house into a home? Take a moment to contemplate what this means for you. If you know what sign your moon is in then add that knowing to the mix as well. If you need help finding the moon in your birth chart then check out my Moon Charts here.
I happen to have a double Aquarius Moon (ie. my Moon is in the sign of Aquarius in the 11th house, the Aquarius house). I feel at home in groups and with friends and I'm also just fine being by myself doing 'so called' odd or unusual things such as what I'm doing here on this blog! I love meditating in groups --- the energy feels more intense and awesome. I love learning in groups especially when the teacher thinks creatively or better yet CHANNELS the class material on the spot which is something I like to do for my classes; that way each class is unique and hopefully transformational.
Full Moon in Leo Oracle Card: Caava Kicks Butt
Time to sink, sink, sink into your subconscious. It's Mercury Retrograde right now so it's not time yet to move forward (wait until Feb. 11 or better yet wait until the Mercury shadow period is over and we're entering the Spring Equinox on March 20.)
This moon is gonna be a deeply felt and intensely emotional moon so be kind to yourself now. Take time to connect and reach out to extended family or friends you haven't spoken to for a while; perhaps contact a medium to connect with an ancestor who has passed over or put in a dream request to 'see' them again. It's time now to ask for guidance and healing from friends, your guides or the Divine.
This Full Moon is also very close to the holy day of Imbolc (Candlemas) which marks the half way point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox on the Wheel of the Year. This usually occurs around Feb. 2, but this year it technically falls on Feb. 4. Traditionally this is a time of initiation, a time of quickening and a time when farmer's ewe's (sheep) began to lactate (the Gaelic word for ewe's milk is "oimelc"). Imagine taking that first long drink of fresh ewe's milk --- take the time to really savour it, then give your imagination free reign.

Imagine yourself one year from now. What do you see? Jot down a few things.
I imagine all of us being in tune with ourselves more and more, just as we stay in tune with the New and Full Moons through these blog posts. Our intuition is stronger and we know what we need to be healthy, whole and holy. We love with all our hearts, we garden, we grow and we bake creatively. We do our part and we touch others on an energetic level. We also make time for rest and we find solace in our spirituality and in nature.
