“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,
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
