In Tune with the Moon and its Cycles

Working in Harmony With the Moon

Using the 28 day cycle of the moon and synchronising your intentions to its new and full moon phases is a powerful way to work with the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®.

First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® offers 2014 Moon Calendars through the online store that show detailed information of moon phases and the timing of its passage (lunar transit) through the twelve zodiacal signs.

The lunar sign transits – the movement of the moon through the zodiac, give an overall energetic feel to the day, which is available for anyone to tap into and use. In this way you can fine tune your use of the First Light essences. The moon moves through the zodiac each month staying in each sign for approximately 2 ½ days. This transiting affects each day’s energies very subtly – a day when the moon is in gentle, imaginative Pisces will feel very different to most people than a day when the moon is fired up and shows the initiative of Aries.

The potency of these energies are even more pronounced or focused on new or full moons

New Moon: For starting something new and seeding in new possibilities.

To best use the new moon’s energy, consider which sign the moon is in. For example a new moon transiting Taurus may be a beneficial time to finally begin a project you have been wanting to do. This Taurus moon energy is very steady and methodical – ensuring something progresses step by step in a determined way. The ‘Taurus’ essences No 4 Marlborough Rock Daisy, No 5 Native Passionfruit and No 6 New Zealand Jasmine can support these positive qualities and address negative conditions such procrastination and the avoidance of perceived difficulties.

Full moon: To reveal your potential and let go of things or attitudes which are holding you back.

The full moon is useful for shedding light on an issue and going about what is needed to resolve it. Often the full moon reveals the challenge of moving on from attitudes or things which no longer serve your highest good. Like the new moon, the full moon's energy varies according to which sign it is transiting. For example the full moon in Cancer would bring emotional awareness and the opportunity to heal emotional pain. Here the ‘Cancer’ essences No 10 Starry Hibiscus, No 11 Chatham Island Geranium and No 12 Native Harebell would support and nurture this process.
