During the time of the full Moon, the Earth, Moon, and Sun are in approximate alignment. The full Moon receives and reflects the greatest amount of the Sun’s light today, and this entire sunlit part of the Moon, faces the Earth. In the study of Astrology, the Sun represents outward Radiance and Masculine energy, and the Moon represents inward Reception and Reflection, connecting with Feminine energy. Today the Sun and Moon are in opposition and the Earth lies astronomically poised between them. The Sun represents our life force and consciousness, and the Moon represents our emotions and deeply hidden feelings. The full Moon gives us a chance to integrate and harmonise our masculine and feminine traits, and become more deeply conscious of what is usually the more hidden areas in our lives. This increased awareness makes the full Moon a beneficial time for insight and clarity through meditation.
