Happy July!! Happy Full Moon!!
I love the month of July – the kids are off school, Summer Sun invites us to spend hours playing outside (in the ocean, at the local water park, in the hills) and I celebrate my birthday with something fun with the kids (usually I choose a morning hike and they go just to humor me and I’m okay with that!).
Although, with my son graduating high school next year, the three of us realize this may be our ‘last’ full July together so we are fully appreciating every moment together!
I read that we are opening July with a Full Moon on the first and closing July with a Full Moon on the 31st. This means that we have a quick cycle of energetically releasing what no longer resonates, creating clear strong intentions and living them, then releasing whatever residual came up as we did the inner work to center into and celebrate our intentions. What a powerful month!
(Which is why I am offering a July session of Manifesting with Joy).
In my work, I often talk about ‘tapping into natural cycles and seasons’. Moon cycles is part of that. Full Moon is wonderful for release while New Moon is wonderful for drawing in.
Of course, we may release and draw in, daily; however, choosing to intentionally understand and tap into the energy of natural cycles allows us to connect and create with that energy in ways that support ease, peace and power in our practice.
In general, full moon energy swoops in to support us with an invitation to release all that isn’t resonant with our intentions and values.
In my personal practice I prefer to embrace that which lights my heart and feels amazing and resonant as fully as possible, allowing that which doesn’t light my heart, perhaps no longer feels amazing or resonant to naturally slough away.
When coaching clients, I offer guidance, support and encouragement for you to focus on what you want, celebrating each step along the way, so that which you ‘don’t want’ isn’t in your realm of being. This focus dissolves resistance to the newness while opening your heart with delight and joy. (win-win)
When we look to Full Moon, it’s a perfect time to breathe in the grace, peace, beauty, *magic* that is reflected to us and to breathe out all that isn’t resonant.
Links to Full Moon Readings
While we don’t “need” readings, we may consider the astrological energies within a reading to act as signs and direction markers, if we wish.
Please remember when practicing presence and energy movement to turn all of that external information inward, exploring how it feels to you as you run it by your intuitive knowing and your heart truth. You have the choice to integrate that which resonates and release that which doesn’t.
Here are a few excerpts and links to readings from guides whom I trust:
“The Sun in the sign of Cancer, which suggests the need for emotional bonding and the Moon in Capricorn suggests the need for attending to responsibilities and the professional world.
“You need to strike a balance between the two opposites so that there is greater harmony and flow…” excerpt by Dipali Desai via Mystic Mamma Full Moon in Capricorn (to read the entire article, please click the link).
Chani Nicholas offers a thorough reading, including Full Moon horoscopes for each sign. I appreciate her direct approach in sharing insights and guidance. She offers so much guidance, it’s difficult to choose what to highlight to share with you here. Here are two points that speak to me (although something different may speak to you – to read the entire article, please click the above link).
“As an earth sign, Capricorn embodies the slow growth of nature. Though fully capable of rapid springtime sprouting, the earth has it’s own pace and refuses to be rushed through it. The earth is ancient. The earth is a complete medicinal kit, containing every aspect of its own cure.”
“…keep your own emotional reactions in check, remember that the only constant in life is change and watch for your need to win because you feel insecure.”
Here is an excerpt from Kara’s Soulstice Rising Newsletter:
All we have is this Moment. All we need is to be aware in this Now. Everything will be presented for us to either energize or release. Being in this space, we know exactly what to do…if we take the time to see what each Moment is trying to tell us. When we pay attention to how we feel, we will know. If you feel peaceful and expanded, that is a message that all is fine with where you are in this moment. If you feel doubt or if something doesn’t feel quite right, go deeper and see what your message is.
Dear Reader: I understand that is a lot of information! I invite you to breathe and center, then consider these questions and share your answers in the comments below:
Do you have any takeaway’s from this month’s readings? What are you open to releasing during this Full Moon energy? What are you open to fully embracing/manifesting in? (when you share, you inspire)
Much peace and abundant love,
