Do you pay much attention to the moon and her cycles?
The moon, if we tune into her, can influence our lives and our small business.
I'm not talking about the weird energy or crazy behaviour of some people around the time of the full moon. Although, you may notice that in the week leading up to the full moon, many clients will share similar themes, behaviours, patterns or issues.
There are four phases of the moons cycle and we will feel the energy of each cycle differently, with the strongest feelings being noticed at the full moon.
In my business, I tend to notice the energies of the New Moon and Full Moon the most. I find these moons to be a wonderful time for personal and self reflection for my small business. My beliefs are holistic, I take a snap shot of the bigger picture. It was how I practiced as a Massage Therapist, taking into account body, mind and soul of each of my clients and supporting them to bring these elements into balance. I would often consider the moon as one of the holistic tools I used in my service.
As a copywriter, communication strategist and mentor, I like to use my holistic toolbox in the same way and work with the moon for guidance and reflection.
Today is the 14th of October and marks the Full Moon in Aries (or the 13th October, depending on where you are geographically located). I'm no astrologist, but I do have some understanding of the Star Signs.
Aries is the first astrological sign, so this full moon brings an energy of release and new beginnings. You can read more about the Full Moon in Aries with Astrology King.
How to use the Full Moon energy in your small business.
Full Moons are a time to harvest, a time to reap what you have sown in the previous month and release all that is no longer serving you. The best time to work with the energy of the Full Moon is a day before to 2 days after.
Now is the time to pour your self a cuppa, sit quietly with your journal to reflect and contemplate your business. You might like to ask or consider:
You may like to burn some incense or palo santo in your office, treatment room or where ever you work to cleanse your space, leaving the window open after to allow the stagnant energy to leave with the smoke. You can also charge your crystals in the moonlight or even take a walk in the moonlight as you mindfully release all that does not service you.
In the days after your Full Moon ritual, you can create your office, treatment room or sacred space again by placing your moon charged crystals strategically. Get some lovely fresh flowers or an indoor plant to enhance your space. And if you are feeling stuck or needing extra support in your business, feel free to book in for a Mentoring Session with me.
