The Magique of Moonifesting: Full Moon

Early tomorrow morning we will be blessed with a full moon in Taurus, so expect to glow with your full femininity!  This sign is ALL about fecundity, fertility, and the finer things in life – think silk and velvet, fresh flowers, and gourmet food and wine.  This is also an earthy sign though, so Taurus is not afraid to get down and dirty, especially with the Scorpio sun along for the ride.  If there was ever a time to embody the God and Goddess of sex, this is it, so amp up your full moon mojo with a little sexual ritual of your own sensual design : )

With regards to the “moon-ifestation” process we are in, the full moon is when our intention is first coming to fruition and we see a little preview of what it is we’re creating. This can be both good and bad! When growing our vision, this is the point when all of our shadows have been brought to light (especially true with sun in Scorpio), so we often have a taste of the heaven we are yearning for, as well as an experience of hell entangled with it.

The full moon is also the ripe egg in the sky, correlating with ovulation, so this is when the moon and we as women pivot back into contraction, turning into ourselves to finish the creative process. We began by creating in our minds, compelled by our desires, but now we will start creating on the physical level, just like a seed being planted in our earthy wombs.  If what shows up for us at this time is a dream come true, we can continue to fertilize that egg of intention and work it into our full blown baby over the rest of this moon cycle. On the other hand, if we find that what we thought we wanted doesn’t serve or fulfill us, we can choose to fully let it go and start fresh next month.

It’s also likely that the “moon-ifestation” process has uncovered old wounds that have been blocking us, which is where the “hell” experience can come in. So whether we want to continue the creative process or let our intention go, this is a beautiful time to focus on healing and releasing our old beliefs and fears, and the month of Scorpio is the perfect time to transform our fears and limitations into strengths and stability.

So, pay attention to what happens over the next few days in your life and in your heart. Start to figure out where you want to go from here. Then when you’re ready, listen to the meditation track (click here to listen) and use it to help you either continue creating or begin letting go. During the upcoming week, pay attention to anything that comes up to either help you create physically what it is you desire, such as actions you need to take or materials and support you need to gather, or what you need to heal. Let this full moon be a fertile one for you and start making your dream a reality <3

The Magique of Moonifesting: First Quarter Moon

All hail the first quarter moon as we enter deeply into the heart – so appropriate with our continuing Libra sun.  When we start manifesting things in our life, it begins to unearth all that has been holding us back from receiving or growing into it, so at first it might seem like you are getting the opposite of what you asked for, and this happens to be the point in the process when the first big obstacle to overcome is highlighted.

Tomorrow the moon grows into its first quarter phase, halfway between the new moon and the full moon. In fact if you gaze upon it, you will see it literally split in half between light and dark. In terms of the seed of intention we planted last week, this means that some of its growth has just started coming to light. Think of the first seedlings pushing through the earth! All of the obstacles that have been keeping you from what you want in your life (fears, insecurities, false beliefs, etc.) have most likely been appearing as real life scenarios. Even though it can feel like this is life’s way of confirming that you will never have or don’t deserve the things you want, it’s actually doing just the opposite! You are being given the opportunity to become conscious of all of all your blocks and strengthen yourself in the needed ways so you can finally make a “breakthrough.”

So how do you do that exactly, when it seems like the manure has hit the fan? You do the things that will nurture your little seedling to grow. Make sure to nourish your body and soul during this time, doing whatever it is that makes you feel safe, taken care of, and stronger. At the same time, become conscious of your deeper issues and be present for them, just allowing yourself to feel what hasn’t been felt in the past and seeing what has been hidden for too long. Look within and ask for solutions, and then take action on any inspiration that comes up. Little hint:  this action will probably need to be the opposite of what you have done over and over again in the past so that you can finally break your pattern. And finally, have compassion for yourself and for others. We are all wounded and trying to figure out what it is to live, and this is part of the process for all of us. This is what it is to be human.

This week’s “moon-ifestation” visualization (click here to listen) can be used over the next week to help you grow from a struggling seedling into a majestic Tree of Life, so use it as often as you’d like. I’ll see you next week, when we start bringing our dreams to fruition.

The Magique of Moonifesting: New Moon

Welcome to the new moon in Libra, where balance and relationship will be brought up for evaluation in all of their forms.  How are you balancing your energy output with times of relaxation and renewal?  How are you balancing the benefits received by both sides in all of your significant relationships?  How are you balancing work with family?  How are you balancing the needs  and limitations of your unique individual self with the expansive and oceanic grandiosity of your never-ending Divine self?  In this week’s post I’m giving you a free meditation (click here to listen) to seed the intention of something you want in your life so you can grow it into its fullest glory.

So to prepare, think of something you deeply desire and long for in your life, whether it’s your soulmate, an artist studio in your home, those amazing shoes you saw online, or even the desire to feel ecstatically alive to life in every moment. What would you absolutely LOVE to have in your life?  Remember, Libra is all about beauty, love, grace, refinement, art, relationships, and balance, so anything that resonates with these energies will have an extra charge today.  Get very clear and focused on what it is you want, especially the way it will make you feel. Next, do the meditation, really feeling the potency of your desire while seeing what you want as clearly as possible. For extra credit, you can find a small object that symbolically represents this to you and/or write it down on a piece of paper, and then bury it in a special spot while still feeling the power and intention of your meditation. Give thanks that the seed has been planted and let it go.

For this next month, I will post here each “Moon”day, walking you through this process of manifesting your desires, aligning each step with the phases of the moon. This is something I do at the end of my Bellyoga classes and I call it “moon-ifestation”! WARNING: This practice is very effective and powerful, so don’t be surprised if things start changing and shaking up in your life immediately! But don’t worry, Ravyn’s here to walk you through the underworld of your subconscious and help you make your dreams a reality <3
