Tuning into the moon is a spiritual practice, and our fast-paced Western world doesn’t always recognize the benefits of taking the time for spiritual practices. You can start by just taking time to look at the moon – sit underneath her and feel her energy. Meditate. Moon gaze. Talk to her and ask questions. Close your eyes and tune in to your energy. Lunar language comes from within.
Other ideas to connect with the moon: put a mason jar of water outside to be charged under the moonlight; start a moon journal to track how your energy feels with each phase; go on nightly moon meditation walks; paint pictures of her; write letters to her.
When working with the moon around a specific goal, you will want to strategize and plan to pair the appropriate actions with the most supportive lunar phase. The repeating pattern of the lunar cycle helps keep us motivated and in alignment.
Lunar work reminds us that it all begins with the self, and most importantly, it begins with love. A self-care practice requires constant consideration, as it is the practice of continuous love. A self-care practice isn’t selfish. If you don’t prioritize yourself, who will?
