Problems sleeping? Ride This Crazy Moon!

“She didn’t quite know what the relationship was between lunatics and the moon, but it must be a strong one, if they used a word like that to describe the insane.”
~ Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die


This July full moon has been a doozy! Her energy so strong it has kept some of us up all night, night after night. Or woken us a dozen times. Or stirred our emotions and our dreams almost to madness.

But from tonight, our beautiful night sky companion moves into a different phase. The energy of this waning gibbous moon in the astrological sign of Pisces is also known as the Angel of Mercy Moon. It’s a moon phase that is gracious and soothing. A moon phase that helps us to develop compassion for ourselves and others. A moon to help us forgive. To help us to move on. A moon to help us accept whatever life has brought in the days before this one, so that when we slip from this next phase into the quarter moon mid next week we will be ready to slip off many of our old burdens and move more freely within ourselves.

You’ll find sleep more easy in the coming nights.

You may feel a strong need for quiet time, time with your dearest humans or animal companions, and for reflection.

Let your emotions rise and move past you without judgement. Think kindly on yourself an others. Embrace the compassion and kindness of this gentle wise moon.

Much love to you, Nicole <3 xx

  1. I could use a soothing moon phase that helps us to accept what life has brought in the days before this one. I am grieving the loss of my dear husband 60 days ago, he was diagnosed with cancer and passed away 2 months later. He passed away during a full moon cycle and whenever I see the full moon I am overcome with grief. Honestly, anything and everything can trigger grief for now. But I could sure use some help from a soothing moon that helps me accept what has happened. I am getting help by attending a grief support group and seeing a psychologist. I also have friends and neighbors looking out after me. I just have to work through the extreme sadness. I miss him so much. So a moon that comforts and helps with acceptance of what has happened is welcome. Thank you for your post Nicole. Your posts almost always seem to speak to me. I am grateful for you. May you be well and thrive.
    Love to you

  2. Ahh, thank goodness. I’m a mess. I feel wobbly, edgy and half drunk from the lack of sleep and the jittery energy from this very pretty but powerful moon. I raise my tea cup to you Nicole and wish for you too a joyous and restful sleep.
