What is Full Moon Magic?
The full moon always occurs when on the far side of the Earth, and the new moon always occurs when closest to the sun. When the Earth, sun, and moon do precisely line up, this alignment is responsible for the phenomena known as solar and lunar eclipses. A Solar eclipse can only happen during a new moon, and a lunar eclipse can only occur at a full moon! Which further explains why solar and lunar eclipses carry that specific moon magic, amplified.
Each phase of the moon each of these phases resonates with specific energy and metaphysical intention Full moon energy is all about the cycle of releasing the intentions you set at the new moon and bringing them to realisation. While metaphysical practitioners use new moon energy to draw down the power of fresh beginnings and the world of possibility at their fingertips, the full moon is a time for completing and releasing what intentions you set forth at the start of the moon cycle. There are 12 houses of the zodiac, and your dominant house, or “sign,” is determined by your sun sign at birth. But every full moon you see in the heavens is also transiting through one of these 12 constellations.
Working with your metaphysical tools, aligning the chakras, and expressing gratitude for the fulfilment of what has come to fruition are all a part of the process. You want to make sure the tools you incorporate (whether they’re gems, perfumes, candles, incense or music (I have posted a favourite below) because all of these events possess a vibrational correspondence within us and to this fullest phase of the moon. Although the moon is precisely full for about one minute only, you have 24 hours before and after this moment to harness the energy of that fullness. This gives you a 48 hour window for full moon magic and ritual.
