I'm quite used to getting the odd raised eye brow when I mention the full moon and the effects it's having.I'm no astrologer, but it makes perfect sense to me, the power of the moon pulling the tides..and the water/emotions within us. It's also been proven to me time and time again , by noticing the patterns of my girls over the years ; their inability to sleep around a full moon and the behaviour that would suggest they've had the biggest injection of sugar! As a midwife I was always curious to see whether more babies would be born, or labours began.....still not so sure about that theory being true...
Anyhoos, this most recent full moon was no exception..and the feeling of overwhelm was S.T.R.O.N.G. To the point of near self combustion! The long list of things requiring attention, the very short space of time to achieve said things, not to mention the simple task of feeding the kids if nothing else ;)....overwhelm oh yes!
At least with the awareness that the moon was heightening this feeling, and that perhaps things weren't quite as overwhelming as they seemed (they never are!).....I took some comfort and waited it out, with as much calm as I could muster. I must add a big cuddly non ferocious bear at this point might have been a really nice place to seek refuge.
And like I knew it would..the moon is waning as are my panicky feelings that I have waaay too much going on. A little bit of balance is restored...till the next full moon :)
This piece "a comfortable place to be" I made quite a while ago now..but it seemed a fitting time to share. I also can't resist introducing this charming duo......"Betty Sue" and "Rita". Still loving those budgies :)
They offer no particular calming influences over the tugs and pulls of life (and moon) ,but they definitely bring a smile and a strong waft of spring!
So what do you all think? Have you noticed the effect of the moon in your life? Seasons ? Nature ? I'd be really interested to hear :)x
