FULL MOON INSIGHTS FOR AUGUST 31, 2012
Today is the second full moon of August - the Blue Moon, in sign Pisces. Pisces is the sign of water and fluidity and full moons represent the opportunity to uncover deep truths and sacred knowing that we have somehow lost on our path.
To honor the sister moon at her fullest and to work with the energy for your greater good, commune with water today. Let your psyche and unconscious be fluid and open like the ocean, so that deeper truths can float to the surface. Once they arise, notice them. You don't need to do anything with them. This is an opportunity for insight, not necessarily action. The real work is uncovering your deep and hidden self-wisdom.
I invite you to embrace a Full Moon Visualization today or in the next few days, when the full moon energy is at its highest. It's simple, yet powerful and will support your opening up to personal truth. You can do this before sleep, during meditation or just when you have a moment to rest quietly. If you can make time to be in water, a bath or swim outside, that would be beautiful. You can also work with a friend, taking turns reading the visualization to each other.
FULL BLUE-MOON VISUALIZATION
Close your eyes and picture a body of water that soothes you - the spaciousness of the ocean, a woodland stream running over rocks, a quiet pond or perhaps rain falling softly in a puddle.
Bring that body of water into your mind, imagine your thoughts swimming gently in it, all together.
Touch down on some of those thoughts - what is arising? Just notice. There is nothing to do here.
After touching down and noticing each thought, no matter how big or small, let each thought float down below the surface, until you are no longer able to see it.
Let your mind become calm like an untouched surface of a pond. No ripples, no current. Just the smooth, mirror like calm of the water's surface.
It feels peaceful and still. The calm of water envelops your entire body and you are floating inside the fluidity. There is nothing to do here except just be.
It is here in this place of just being, that you open yourself up to deeper knowing. As the water supports you, simply state to yourself "I am open to my sacred truths".
And then float. The mind is fluid. Small thoughts may intrude the surface of your mind, but the water helps them float back away.
And then, perhaps in that stillness, truths emerge - as symbols, words, pictures or even colors. Whose to say what form your sacred knowing takes in this magical space of the mind?
Simply notice without evaluation. Stay here for 5-10 minutes if possible.
When finished, perhaps you are moved to write down what emerged, which may help uncover more meaning. Or simply write down what emerged so that you are able to process it later.
For now, you can stay in the watery realm of the Pisces Moon - fluid and open to your feminine sacred spirit.
