October 1st is the Aries full moon, and do you know what that means? You will be overcome with extra energy and you should use it to push you in the direction of your passions. Make sure to find healthy ways to channel your energy so you don’t become overwhelmed or reckless. As you may know, the full moon phase is the time to meditate on your manifestations from the previous new moon. Focus on what you want and what you need, making sure not to forget about yourself while caring for others. Self-care is so important! Let’s talk about what you should be focusing on during this upcoming phase.
When you’re so filled with emotions and the stress of day-to-day life, it can be quite difficult to control everything you are feeling. With so much going on in our lives, it’s easy to lose our cool sometimes and that’s perfectly normal. Making sure to be mindful and setting intentions throughout your day are ways that you can ensure that you don’t do or say anything you might regret. Remember, the ones who love and care about you want what is best for you. Try not to become irritable with your friends and loved ones for being concerned about you when life tries to take over your mental state.
Keep A Lid on That Energy
As mentioned before, try to find healthy ways to channel all of that Aries energy. Perhaps you try out a yoga routine, go on a jog, or run around with your kids in the backyard. Just make sure to stay active and your mind and body will thank you for it. Regular exercise is key to containing those jitters and staying focused on your dreams and visions during this full moon phase. A clear mind is necessary for a successful ritual!
Don’t Neglect Your Needs
I’ll say it louder for the people in the back. Self-care is SO important! It’s so easy to forget about ourselves and the full moon is a great time to bring self-care back to the forefront of our minds. Have a spa day, go get a massage, take a relaxing bath, or put on a face mask, and binge Netflix. What does pampering mean for you? Whatever that answer is, make time for it this moon phase. You work hard and you deserve a break. Don’t skip out on relaxation days, or you might start feeling a little burnt out.
It’s unfortunate but there won’t always be other people around to motivate us or tell us not to snooze the alarm for the third time. Sometimes we have to get ourselves up, pull ourselves together into something presentable and say: ‘Hey, I’m going to tackle my to-do list today no matter what!’ The feeling we get after completing an important task far outweighs the feeling of lacking the drive to do it in the first place. Often the motivation comes after the deed is done and this can make it quite difficult to focus on your passions, especially when you are reaping little to no reward from them. Take solace in the fact that your time to shine will come. Just keep getting up and keep doing your best, the rest will take care of itself.
Let’s Talk Rituals!
So, we’ve talked about what to focus on during this moon phase when it comes to your behavior and frame of mind, now let’s talk rituals! Rituals are an excellent way to check in with yourself, take note of things that need your attention, and set intentions for your day. This is a special meditative moment for you to simply be with yourself and not focus on anything or anyone else. Never performed a ritual before? No worries, you can check mine out here! Remember, this moon phase is all about meditating on your passions and channeling that good, good energy. Happy full moon!
