For many people, a full moon is a symbol of spiritual healing, cleansing, and awakening. Many people believe that you can harness the energy from a full moon and utilize it to increase the positive energy that surrounds you. Others view the energy that is given off by the full moon as negative. Historically, the full moon has been related to “madness.”
For me, the full moon symbolizes wholeness and completion. Viewing the moon throughout its many phases serves as a reminder to me that it is okay to not always be at 100%. The moon is still whole even on the days in which it is not fully illuminated and shining the brightest. In the same way, we are still whole and complete throughout our many phases of light and darkness. The waxing and waning of positive energy is normal, and it offers us a chance to re-evaluate and check in with ourselves.
