Today’s word is FUSSY. My clothes feel constricting, lights are too bright, and things can’t be fast enough today.
As empaths and sensitives, we know we are very affected by the energies surrounding us. We know when the air is too cold, or someone’s mood has just hit fiery before he realizes it, or when the overall mood theme for the day on Facebook is FRANTIC. Like little caterpillars we feel out the environment with our exposed feelers.
So if we have a full moon happening, and especially a lunar eclipse, do we feel the effects of that energy?
Years and years ago, there was a lunar eclipse followed by a solar eclipse, and my body went haywire. I was releasing a ton and have all kinds of weird symptoms, but was it the planetary action or what I was experiencing in my life at the time?
As women, our bodies are tuned into the moon through our cycles. And many who are not longer experiencing cycles still feel the effect of the moon. If the moon is more feminine then both male and female can relate when it is speaking, right?
I looked to the experts for my answers. The astrologers talk of this upcoming lunar eclipse and the many changes that will affect us.
Magical Recipes Online talks about the Druid Willow Moon. That name in itself sounds so imaginative and magical!
My friend Julia talks about the astrological overall themes we are feeling right now during this moon phase.
Several metaphysical astrology sites talk of huge emotional impacts this lunar eclipse will have. Hmmmmmm.
- According to NBC news, full moons can give us restless sleep. Link is over here.
- And over at this Australian news site, full moons and eclipses can cause mood swings. Feel like howling at the moon?
- Wikipedia coins the phrase “lunar effect” and says there is even a “lunar lunacy.” Nice! Now we have an excuse to go a little crazy.
As sensitives and empaths, we can swing past the research and go right to how we feel in this moment. I know when there is a full moon I do have a hard time sleeping, partly because the moon is shining so brightly into my window, and being so sensitive, I can feel it. I like a dark room when I sleep.
Perhaps we are picking up all the beliefs about the moon, and that collective unconscious is affecting what we think, influencing our thoughts. Regardless, I am fussy. I am restless. And I have this overwhelming urge to dance under the moonlight, ditch these restrictive clothes, and howl. Please don’t tell my neighbors. Now I have an excuse for my craziness. I have Lunar Lunacy. ;)
