“The Moon is the reflection of your heart,” said doctor and philosopher Debasish Mridha, “and moonlight is the twinkle of your love.”
Those words truly resonate with me. Over the last 10 years or so, I’ve explored my ongoing connection to the moon in so many ways. It plays such a key role in the cyclical life we all live.
I have so much respect for the moon and its phases, as it creates a rhythm and acts as a guide for our lives on a subconscious and conscious level. Even as I write this, I am sitting in the glow of the first full moon after the equinox, thinking about change.
We are living in a new world, navigating uncharted territory. It has been just over a year since our lives got turned upside down and changed on such a dramatic level. All of this year’s events led me even closer to a place of connecting to spirituality and trusting the universe, as that is all that I, and most of us, had for comfort. The moon goes through phases just as we do, shedding what is no longer needed, shining with imagination and possibility. It’s the truest and clearest symbol for finding light in darkness.
Understanding the moon and its cycles is a powerful way to put faith in the intangible, while focusing inwardly on ourselves. The full moon that just passed on March 28th was in Libra, my own zodiac sign, and is meant to bring harmony to relationships. Every month is a bit different, but it’s always about doing both the inner and outer work in sync with the moon’s phases for the greatest benefits.
I’ve personally found that you can also understand your body through these natural rhythms. It’s about releasing the thoughts that no longer serve you and keep you from reaching your highest potential by calling in abundance and positivity for the month ahead and creating a ritual within yourself that focuses on manifestation and cleansing.
The moon allows you to embrace your feminine essence. That’s why, for this month, I thought it would be interesting to explore different businesses, ideals, ceremonies and theories that revolve around the moon and our lives (or vice versa). Come let the moon bring your heightened emotions to the surface, activate her innate powers and embody her qualities of fluidity, creativity and change!
