But why does the full moon hold such significance?
The full moon has been considered a powerful and significant time throughout human history across various cultures and belief systems. While there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that a full moon has a direct impact on human behaviour, considering that the human body is composed of 60% water, and we can see the impact that the full moon has on the pull of the tide, the behaviour of wildlife, it is still seen as a time of heightened energy, emotional intensity, and spiritual significance.
Here are some of the reasons why the full moon is often regarded as a powerful time of the month:
Cultural and Mythological Significance: Many cultures and mythologies have associated the full moon with gods, goddesses, and important celestial events. These associations can contribute to the belief in the full moon's power and significance.
Increased Visibility: The full moon is the brightest and most visible phase of the moon's cycle. Its luminosity can symbolise enlightenment and clarity, making it a time for insight and understanding.
Rituals and Traditions: Numerous rituals and traditions are performed during the full moon in various spiritual and esoteric practices. These rituals may include meditation, prayer, energy cleansing, and intention setting. People use this time to manifest desires and release negative energies.
Emotional Sensitivity: Some people believe the full moon's energy affects human emotions, causing heightened sensitivity and emotional intensity. This belief has given rise to the term "lunatic," which originally referred to someone believed to be affected by the moon's phases.
Astrological Beliefs: Astrologers often consider the full moon an important time for astrological events and readings. They believe that the moon's position relative to the zodiac signs can influence individuals in various ways.
Natural Cycles: The moon has a profound influence on natural cycles, including tides and wildlife behaviour. Some people believe that these effects extend to human life, even though scientific studies have not provided conclusive evidence to support this idea.
Spiritual and Metaphysical Beliefs: Many spiritual and metaphysical traditions teach that the full moon is a time when the veil between the physical and spiritual worlds is thin, making it easier to connect with higher realms, spirit guides, and one's own intuition.
Personal Beliefs and Experience: The perception of the full moon's power can be highly individual. Some people experience heightened emotions, vivid dreams, or significant life changes during full moons, reinforcing their belief in its power.
The full moon is the perfect time to practice yoga and rejuvenate and release any built up tension or stress, freeing space for manifesting positivity and abundance.
