The Moon is powerful and in astrology, it’s the Mother. The Moon also has an intense energy that can really make an impact on you. Sometimes it can feel like the Moon is protecting and watching over you. The Moon is definitely a girl’s girl and always has your back.
How does the Moon’s sacred energy impact your and your zodiac sign?
If you are respectful of the Moon and her sacred energy, she will give good energy right back to you. I know this first hand because I dabble in witchcraft and I often use the Moon’s energy for my spells.
When it is a Full Moon, I always place my crystals near the window so the Moon’s energy can recharge them. Wolves have been howling at the Moon since the dawn of time. The Moon has been there forever so it is important that we respect and acknowledge the power it carries. It can impact you more than you might realize.
From my own personal experience, I know that when it is a Full Moon, I tend to feel a lot more emotional and energetic. So, it is helpful to be aware of the phases of the Moon, so you can see how the moon’s energy impacts you.
You can also use the Moon phases to better your relationships, health, or career because the different phases act as a roadmap towards manifesting things into your life.
The Moon constantly goes through phases of retreating, withdrawing, and beginning again. Just like the Moon, humans also go through phases similar to the lunar cycle throughout life. So, it is best for us to know the Moon’s process, so we can sync up with it and let it help us through our phases.
