To say I have felt the shifts of this August Full Moon (Thursday 18th August) would be a huge understatement! It has come to my attention that I am not alone, many other sensitive souls, in particular women, have been experiencing the intensity for the past couple of weeks, but most potently the past few days leading up to today. I gave energy healing at Cherub and Tim Wheater's Sound Activation on Tuesday evening in the most magnificent church in South Kensington and there were so many emotional releases and intense experiences for many involved, it was even more clear to see then how much of an effect this phase has had on so many. It has been an emotional roller coaster, past memories and thought patterns coming up to the surface big style and a sense of loneliness. Yet today is the day of the Full Moon at last and I have woken up with a real sense of calm and an urge to send love out to everybody, if anyone else reading this has been feeling out of sorts the past week or so then know you are not alone!!!
If you are a sensitive being and you often feel the effects of the moon and planetary shifts then it is very important to care for yourself in these times. Take lots of time to chill out and be in your own energy or with people who you feel comfortable with, stay away from anything that can bring you down to a low vibration, connect with nature as much as possible to keep you grounded, write down your feelings and things that come up so you can stay present and aware of the emotion passing through you, rather than being totally wrapped up in it. Stay on top of it and see the root of it, that way it passes through a lot quicker. Embrace this process with a big open heart and flow with it, don't fight it, it is actually helping us release and come to terms with parts of ourselves and our life so we can grow and evolve.
Many people are not aware of the strong connection we have with the moon from down here on earth! My menstrual cycle syncs with the Full Moon, so today I woke up releasing with her. This is the norm for me now, since early last year when I realised I had begun syncing with the Moon. Some months I would even have 2 cycles, with the New Moon and Full Moon. Then by the end of summer it seemed to decide to stay with the Full Moon and that is how it has been ever since, with the exception of a couple of months, it has been on the exact day or day before of each Full Moon. All of us femmes know how intense a menstrual cycle is regardless of other things in life going on, so when its teamed with a Full Moon it is safe to say its super intense in any sense, but I wouldn't have it any other way, to know I am in natural rhythm with the universe feels how it should be! Since the old day's it was said that those who bleed with the Full Moon are the medicine women, healers and mystics and those who bleed with the New Moon are the mothers, nurtures and most fertile.
If you want to read more about how us humans sync with the Moon and all about the Moon in general then check out my blog which I wrote back in February for another super powerful one which I experienced….
I would love to hear your Moon stories! If you have any please share with me!
So what is actually going on this Full Moon?
As always, Mystic Mama gives great insight and advice into what is fully going down on an astrology level! This extract spoke volumes to me..
“Occurring a day before the next eclipse season begins (19th August – 23rd September), this Full Moon is an ‘almost-but-not-quite’ lunar eclipse, giving it greater influence and a stronger ‘edge’ against which to hone our awareness… In Aquarius, it illuminates mental habits and unconscious tendencies which keep us stuck in rigid patterns of thought, belief and behaviour.
If we’ve been wondering why we can’t seem to get it together and do what’s needed to make that long overdue change, it reveals how we keep ourselves in chains, blinkered to truths just outside our awareness and mired in self-sabotage.
It may be a rude awakening, especially if the stark lunar light reveals it is we who have painted ourselves into a corner, not external circumstances conspiring against us.
Whilst such insights are a bitter pill to swallow, this is just the first stage: a nudge from the universe to embrace our past selves, not chastise them.
Self-blame will get us nowhere, so whatever comes to light around the time of this Full Moon must be met by a gentle and loving heart, not a hardened and critical one.
This Moon may come with loneliness, a sense of being misunderstood. If we can resist taking things too personallyit will go a long way to not letting these feelings rule the day and create mountains out of molehills!
There’s a fair bit of tension around and many will be feeling it, so cutting each other (and ourselves) some serious slack is good advice!"

Sound Healing, South Kensington
I would strongly recommend Cherub and Tim's Sound Activation events for anyone based in or around London. The next one is on the New Moon 1st September. All you have to do is lie back, close your eyes and receive the deep, powerful healing from the high frequency sounds and vibrations. They use gongs, flutes, shamanic voice, chimes and many more magical instruments which create an immersive and powerful space for healing and releases. During the event I go around and give energy healing to everybody along with 2 lovely healers. If you are interested in the events you can ask me or follow the lovely beings here for updateshttps://www.facebook.com/timandcherub
