Happy Full Moon, my friends!

Welcome to a new Reiki Rose Blog segment called Cosmic Update. I will be bringing you information about what is happening in our little corner of the universe! I often find myself feeling a bit overwhelmed, overly sensitive and then take a look at the calendar and say, "OH! It's the full moon tomorrow! No wonder!" or "OH! It's Mercury Retrograde! Better make sure I am extra careful about my communication with the world!" It's nice to get insight from various wise sources to validate and get a deeper understanding of our experience as sensitive human beings on Earth.

The Full Moon is tomorrow Tuesday December 17th at 2:28 AM MST (9:28 am GMT).
It will be in Gemini, a sign of duality, balance, and expressing inner truths and thoughts. There's a lot of intense energy flying around, as we're coming up to the Winter Solstice on December 21st. Take this time to go within, ask for guidance, and listen to what comes up- your intuition knows best! It will be important to be mindful of the way we express ourselves, as there is potential for a bit of overshare and friction with those closest to us. Keep centered in your breath, stay in your heart space, and really take this opportunity to look at what you want to shine the bright light of the Full Moon on. As always, this lunar phase brings many chances for introspection, taking a hard look at ourselves and where our lives are going, release what no longer serves us or keeps us small, and the ability to realign to what is really most important. There is so much magic in the air- use this darkness and quiet of winter to plan, dream, and manifest what you want to create in 2014. This is the last full moon of 2013- take advantage of this potent time to its fullest! As always, the message of SURRENDER and TRUST is a big one to work with- a deep knowing that everything (even if it seems stressful or like it must dissolve for new growth to exist) will work out exactly as it should.

You don't need to have a big fancy lunar ritual if that isn't your style. Honoring the Full Moon can be as simple as looking up at her shining face and expressing your gratitude for this amazing life! It is quick and easy to thank her for guiding, enlightening, and blessing you in all that you do.  Perhaps this could be a time to consciously release what you no longer need, and manifest some of the dreams you have been holding in your heart. Do what feels right!

Thank you Grandmother Moon. Thank YOU for stopping by, and good luck!
