The Full Moon is considered to mark the end of a lunar cycle. Of course, the lunar cycle never really ends - at least it hasn't to date. The Moon is always waxing and waning. The energies build-up to the Full Moon and then boom! Following the Full Moon, there is some form of "madness" following where we are being asked to deal with our stuff.
The Full Moon is all about letting go of lower energies that come from negative events, as well as negative patterns you have fallen into. It's about releasing patterns, thoughts, and toxic people. It's a good time to do inner work - for healing, shifting blocks and shedding the past.
Why Is Forgiveness Crucial For Manifesting?
It is important to note that to realise our dreams via New Moon manifesting, we need to have released any grudges that we have against anyone. The Full Moon is also the ideal time to practice forgiveness and gratitude. We can use the Full Moon to process the following:
To process and release the karma that goes with whatever happened, we have to forgive. That might also mean forgiving ourselves or forgiving someone else.
You can look at everything in the following way: before you came down here to Earth, and before you incarnated, you made several soul agreements. You knew that you wanted your soul to evolve during your lifetime, so you made agreements with other souls to 'do things to each other' that would push all your buttons, but ultimately it would teach you.
So, when someone does something to upset you, think you probably have a soul contract with them and look for the lessons they are teaching you. Resentment only leads to bitterness, which is toxic. As the Buddha said, 'holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.'
