Working with the lunar cycles is a basic human instinct and has been important for people in many traditions across time and space. Tracking time in this way stimulates our creative, associative and intuitive minds.
Twice per month, at the new moon and full moon, I offer lunar attunements that combine astrology with ritual, somatic awareness and creative practices.
The new moon in general is considered to be a time of endings and beginnings, when the light of consciousness (the sun) is together with subjective awareness (the moon.) At the new moon we ponder questions, absorb information, and plant seeds for future ambitions. The two weeks following a new moon are a time of growth, evolving awareness, and materialization. New moon attunements are meant to inspire new growth and formation of possibility.
The full moon in general is considered to be a time of understandings, revelations, and polarity. The nature of opposition is that each side reinforces the role of the other. Therefore at the full moon we often are more aware of self and other, or come into new understandings of our own role in relationships. The two weeks following a full moon are a time of integration, follow-through, spreading/sharing, and letting go. Full moon attunements are meant to inspire balanced perspective and increased relational awareness.
