The full moon is the most recognizable lunar phase, signifying the midway point of the 28-day lunar cycle where the moon reaches its peak and shines its brightest. During a full moon, the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth, forming a 180-degree astrological aspect (energetic relationship between planets) called an opposition. This lunation is perhaps the most sensitive moon phase as events in our lives will come to a dramatic culmination at this time, causing emotional celebrations or goodbyes.
Dynamic full moons ignite cosmic endings, the attainment of milestones, and the end of current chapters in our lives. The projects, ventures, and relationships that we begin during new moons — at the beginning of the lunar cycle — tend to push us toward endings in a polarizing area of our life so we can make space for growth in all avenues. You can expect a full moon to bring the completion of a project, the development of a relationship, the end of a job, and an overall energetic high point where you’re more likely to receive recognition, attention, and rewards for your hard work. Remember, the zodiac sign that will energize the full moon is another component that will add depth to your understanding of how the lunation will influence you.
