As many of you may know, the moon cycles have been shown to have an effect on our mental, physical and emotional state..
But first, let’s get the historical context out of the way. You probably already know that the word “lunatic” comes from the Roman moon goddess “Luna”. In ancient Greece and Rome, philosophers guesstimated that the water in the brain might be subject to the same kind of tidal motions as the ocean, causing a wave of strange behavior whenever the moon was particularly full or large in the sky. Even today, some psychiatrists continue to hold up this watery brain theory which in my opinion makes a lot of sense.
Also taking into account that the human body is about 75 percent water and water is emotion which means that the tides are at work inside us. Our bodies. Ill get into full moons in further post but for now the topic is on using the “New Moon” energies in our favor..
So New Moons occur when la luna is perfectly positioned between the Earth and the Sun. Pretty much, the “backside” of the Moon is lit and she becomes invisible from our view down here. New Moons are thought of as starting points, moments to plant seeds that we’ll harvest during the full moon that same month or even months later.
Since everything goes black, it’s as if we have a blank canvas on which to create. In “nothingness” there is a sense of limitless possibilities. That is the gift of the New Moon, a great time for setting intentions, making wishes, and taking the first brave step towards a new goal. I get into it a bit more in the video. Check it in and in-joy the new moon magic:)
