■ THE FULL MOON
The full moon is the most exciting of the lunar phases. Many people have trouble sleeping when the moon is full. Sleepwalking is a common feature of this period. Some animals are restless; dogs bark through half the night. Herbs and roots harvested on this day will be especially effective. The number of victims of alcohol abuse also reaches its peak. More children are born during this than in any of the other lunar phases.
The main characteristics of the full moon are profound emotions and a noticeable restlessness. The moon and the sun are positioned directly across from each other in the sky and as far apart as they can get. Feelings of abandonment and other fears may present themselves, which do not necessarily originate in the present, but may resurface from previous times.
During the full moon, the earth's satellite reflects more of the sun's light to the earth than at any other time. Domains of darkness are suddenly illuminated. Repressed memories may appear, and ideas or desires that we have never had the courage to realize may make their presence felt.
While it is true that the period of the full moon is a phase of restlessness-and this might result in a delay in the processes of healing-how we evaluate this fact depends on our point of view. Of course, a sleepless night is not pleasant. But when forgotten wishes and fears reappear, or when new ideas and insights are born, it is often more important, healthier, and more worthwhile than undisturbed sleep.
The full moon, aside from all the agitation it creates, has from ancient times been thought the right time for an inner turnaround, for reconciliation and forgiveness, and for new friendships. It is also a time of solution and deliverance.
■ THE NEW MOON The new moon makes itself felt less strongly, or at least less direct-ly, than the full moon. It is excellent for new beginnings. Yet the darkness that accompanies the new moon awakens fears as well. You need the courage to step out into new spiritual territory in order to appreciate the new moon as a creative time. If you can muster this courage, the new moon will bless you with new powers. It will be as if your spiritual energies were being recharged and given another chance. If you want to rid yourself of problems, there is no better time than during the new moon. Whether you want to say goodbye to bad habits, to outgrown relationships, or to outdated beliefs, the new moon will support you in the best way. The new moon, of course, is also very appropriate for fasting and purification.
■ THE WANING MOON When the moon is waning, its natural and spiritual powers are dwindling. Just as, when we're exerting ourselves physically, we need to exhale, so the waning moon supports us in deploying our energies. Among the wonderful secrets of lunar power is its ability to renew itself cyclically. That's why we do not have to fear a loss of energy when we exhaust ourselves in this phase. The moon is a mirror; it reflects the sunlight. And perhaps it is also a mirror in a figurative sense. It gives us back as much energy as we ourselves have invested. The waning 'moon is a phase in which we can concentrate on life's essentials-what is useful and what is necessary.
■ THE WAXING MOON New energies accumulate. Nature takes in, builds up, and strength-ens itself. You may read that the waxing moon is above all a time for relaxation and recreation, but this is not necessarily the case. New natural and spiritual powers are maturing during the waxing moon. The soul opens further and further until the full moon is reached. You can now acquire insight into strangers, events in the distant past, or developments taking place beneath the surface of things. Nothing human is foreign to you when you take advantage of the opportuni-ties offered by the waxing moon and the full moon. It is not always easy, but it is fulfilling and enriching when your soul grows wings.
