The Full Moon Pivot, from Creating to Sharing

Full Moon Phase, July 14, 2022, 7:52 AM to Fourth Quarter Moon Phase, June 20, 2022, 11:11 PM

It is that time of the Lunar month when we switch directions from in to out. Every moment of every day calls on us to assess that core choice. Yet, the Lunar Cycle helps embody this switch in visual and visceral ways.

It’s challenging to align with the ebb and flow of the Moon. We might feel the conditioning to keep our heads down and keep the focus on producing, no matter how our body feels. In 2022, we are far removed from the Indigenous living that reflects our connection with nature in all that we do.

Self-awareness helps us stay with the current. Identifying and caring for our feelings and needs keeps us present.

The Center for Nonviolent Communication (NVC) has two inventories that can be helpful as we flow with our Moon. The first is a feelings inventory. We can move through the feeling unencumbered when we own what we feel, free of labeling as good or bad.

One central tenet of NVC is that under every feeling is a need. Once we identify the feeling, we can explore the need that drives the feeling.

We are spiritual beings living a human life. How we feel is not always pretty or peaceful. Feelings are messengers, and untended feelings block our flow.

Performing feelings and needs audits during a Full Moon can be an effective way of self-care that helps us lighten up and flow with the Moon.

How to use these inventories:

  1. Carve out quiet time to review the feelings list. Circle the feelings you recognize as being current. Maybe do a relaxation technique, like gentle, rhythmic breathing, and go back to the list and pull out the top three feelings. Then identify the top feeling.
  2. Next, take out the needs list. Maybe continue with the relaxing breaths to get to a calm space where you can be curious and kind. Review the needs list to see what needs lie underneath your top feelings.
  3. Circle as many needs as apply to you. Then, note the top three needs, then the top need. Embrace the core need that fuels your core feeling
  4. Acknowledge the legitimacy of that need
  5. Ask your intuition how that need can be met
  6. Over the following days or weeks, stay in touch with how the need is getting met. If the need is not getting met, ask your intuition, pray, meditate, journal, draw, and use any tool you have to help you get that need honored and included in your life
  7. You can ask a friend or a family member to do this audit with you.

Please share your experiences and insights in the comments section. That is also a place to ask questions if you have them.

In this Full Moon week, may you anchor in your Coeur, your heart, and shine your light, mirroring our Moon’s endless teaching of the reciprocal rhythm of life, receiving, and giving.  

5D Here, Now

As we talk about the shift from inner to outer, self to other, in this week’s Lunar phase focus, let’s look at the capacity of 5D where Sovereignty and Unified Harmony co-exist. Consciousness at the level of 3D cannot grasp the experience of being sovereign and inclusive. Indigenous Peoples have modeled sovereignty and inclusion. Those working consciously with the shift to 5D consciousness can look to indigenous cultures to see how they combine being sovereign and inclusive.

In contemporary society, humans have been conditioned by an overlord boss and a subservient server-class system since the Industrial Age [i]  Fast forward to the current imprint of the billionaires and the rest of us. This outdated programming is changing. Please note DeAndre Brown’s TikToks, where he shows acceptable work boundaries.

The tide is turning, and more people like DeAndre Brown say yes to living sovereignly as a non-hierarchal part of the whole.

The work of the Nonviolent Communication community and many other groups around the world teach that self-empathy and self-care are at the center of well-being. As each recurring lunar cycle starts with building the self into a creative expression that can be shared during the second half of the cycle, we start, too, with self-care and self-empathy.

We must stop the war within ourselves before putting fires out around us.

In case you have not seen it, I highly recommend viewing Pam Gregory’s YouTube video Ghosts in the Theatre – YouTube. My direct experience of Pam’s teaching is that it helps uplift to the highest vibration, the highest self-care vibe possible for these challenging times.

Void of Course Moon Times this Week

I have been waiting for this โ€“ a daylong Void Moon in my timezone. I consider Void Moons like snow days or playing hookey. As I have written earlier, I feel these void times in my blood and bones and find it impossible to produce during them. I plan and schedule accordingly.

As you see in the times listed below, our Moon is Void of Course, all day in the Eastern Time Zone for the United States and Canada on Tuesday, June 14, 2022. An extended Void Moon during regular business hours also affects other time zones in these countries. For Europe, the times occur in the evening, and for Australia, and New Zealand, during the middle of the night.

If you are curious, start tracking your energy levels, productivity, and ability to focus during void Moon times. Please share your experiences in the comments section.

Void Moons: No form to contain the energy which feels free-floating and hard to focus. Heeding what your body wants during Void Moons โ€” more internal focus, less external focus, and more stillness, quiet, and rest โ€” are great ways to embody the Moon.

The Void Moon Times this week include:

Tuesday, June 14, 10:58 AM to 6:14 PM EDT

Thursday, June 16, 2:41 PM to 5:44 PM EDT

Saturday, June 18, 2:50 PM to 7:01 PM EDT

Blessed Be. See you next week at the Fourth Quarter Moon Moon.
