Welcome to the first full moon in 2022! While the full moon is exact on January 17th, the effects can be strongly felt the few days before and after, and more subtly felt the week before and after. So be sure to take a look at what unfolds well beyond the actual date.
It just so happens that this full moon takes place in the sign of Cancer: a cardinal, feminine, water sign, ruled by the moon. All of these qualities signal toward the energy of this lunation. Cardinal signals us to pay attention! Feminine calls us to look within for what are paying attention to. Water reminds us to allow the sensitivity of our emotions and our energetic beings to to signal us "yes" or "no".
This full moon is also ruled by la luna herself, as Cancer is ruled by the moon. So we have extra potent energetic understandings coming though right now. Our sensitivity is heightened with the moon being in her home sign of Cancer, depending on the individual this may feel like we're extra sensitive with our emotions, our thoughts, our physical bodies... or our energetic bodies and extra-sensitivities. The key to remember here is ALL of this sensitivity is good! We are after all energetic beings, we are here to remember what that's all about and how to harness the vast power contained within each of us.
To support us in all of this, we have Sioux Moon Goddess Hanwi. I offer in the podcast her legend and suggest that she is here now to help welcome back, embody and rebalance the divine feminine in each of us. Divine feminine is inward turning, aware of all of the subtleties of feeling and intuition. Hanwi, as the Divine Feminine, rules the darkness of night. Her counterpart Wi, as Divine Masculine, rules the day. Because Hanwi’s light, the moonlight, pierces the darkness, it is said to hold more power than the sun’s daylight.
Hanwi is a nurturing, protective goddess, here to support us in letting go of all the things we are carrying that separate us from our own innate light and from the divine feminine wisdom we intuitively have within ourselves.
When the full moon arrives, it is a time of realization, culmination and cleansing. We can use the power of the moonlight to cleanse ourselves, to face our shadows and fears and release of all that no longer serves. Hanwi keeps us safe, watching over us in the darkness, as we cleanse our energetic bodies mind from heavy energies and release stress, tension and fear.
With the theme of continued energetic sensitivity, I got the nudge to offer a second Energetic Clearing course! We will begin a three week journey together on Sunday January 30th. I know some of you didn't get the chance to join the first round of the course so now is the time to hop into the additional offering! More information here and by clicking the image above.
