First of all thanks for reading my blogs and I have tears in my eyes full of gratitude for you all (as I am a moon dominant person and my moon is in pushya hehe...).
Please note it is my duty to inform you that in vedic astrology moon in Chandra graha and is considered a son and a female planet and I will explain why in the coming days as I am still yet to finish my entire research on the Navagrahas.
Universal energy of The moon
Today I am talking about La Luna, our moon as the universal yin energy, the female energy, the energy the governs the water content of our body, the oceans and our emotions! Okay so please do not get confused and ask any questions in the comments. I will happily try to answer.
As an astro-wiz, folks always quiz me on incorporating the magic of astrology into their everyday life. And my tip? The moon is where it's at! Everyone's buzzing about the moon's power these days, but this isn't new news, folks. Our ancestors were all over this lunar rhythm, using it to plan their lives, from farming to haircuts.The moon has a magnetic mojo that pulls our mental and physical vibes in sync with its cycle. Even if you're a moon-skeptic, why not give it a whirl and see if it adds a little sparkle to your daily groove? Trust me, the moon's got our back!
Why should you try living with the moon phase and make her your best friend?
The moon has been a glittering muse for humanity since forever! It's the closest thing to our planet and has tinkered with our lives, culture, and even our thoughts! Here are some juicy ways the moon has stirred things up:
Firstly, it's boss at regulating tides, the ocean's heartbeat! This affects marine life and coastal ecosystems, and the moon's magnetic pull also messes with fluids inside us, like blood and other stuff!
Secondly, the moon has inspired heaps of art, literature, and myths from all over. It's been linked to fertility, renewal, and the ups-and-downs of life. Even ancient folks used the moon's phases to track time and create calendars.
Thirdly, the moon's been a hotshot in science too! It was the first chunk of space rock that humans landed on during the Apollo missions, and now scientists are still eyeballing it to better understand our solar system's history and evolution.
Fourth and best one, drumroll please! Researchers have uncovered a fascinating factoid: most ladies' menstrual cycles dance along with the moon's phases! In fact, those under 35 sync up with the full or new moon around 23.6% of the time! It's like a cosmic connection between our bodies and the universe. How cool is that? Overall, the moon has been a cosmic rockstar! Whether we're gawking at it from the sidewalk or poking it with science, the moon remains a fascinating force in our world.
For centuries, humans have been tapping into the moon's mystical vibes to enhance their daily lives. The moon rotates every 29.5 days, and each cycle has a unique energy that can transform your world.
For example, during the new moon, the energy revolves around starting fresh, setting intentions, and kicking off new projects. It's the perfect time to take that first step towards change. On the flip side, the full moon is like a power surge of energy, where you can release what no longer serves you and manifest your deepest desires. It's like a cosmic push to get in touch with your inner goals and take charge of your life.
By tapping into the moon phases, you can connect with your inner intuition and align your goals with the universe's natural rhythm. So, get ready to be swept away by the moon's magic, and let the lunar energy guide you towards your wildest dreams and aspirations.
The Moon's outfits!
The moon has quite the wardrobe, with eight different looks:
Waning Gibbous (or Disseminating)
Waning Crescent (or Balsamic)
It can bear overwhelming to completely go by all the moon phases always but you can start small. If you are following me you know very well you will get updates about the new moon and full moon - so you can work with that. Timing is everything in the art of practice, and the new moon is the perfect moment to start. As the moon itself brightens, you'll find your own energy surging, with more invites to social adventures at the full moon. As the moon wanes, you'll feel the world slowing down and your energy taking a nap.
So start off working with new and full moon energies to stay in rhythm with the moon cycle - especially if you are a woman. That should be enough too!
LADIES LISTEN UP! Here's a fun fact for all the ladies tracking their monthly moon cycle:
If your flow falls around the new moon, (This includes 4-5 days before / after the new moon) you might be starting something fresh, like a new gig, project, or phase in life!
But if you're bleeding during the full moon, (This includes 4-5 days before / after the full moon) it could be time to say ta-ta to any baggage weighing you down, like emotional stress, past traumas, or regrets. It's like hitting the reset button for your soul and womb and release and let go as many times as you need to!
