Every month the Moon will go through a cycle. When the Moon is new, this is a time for starting new projects and making plans. When the Moon is waxing (coming into being full) we ask for good and positives things to come into our lives. When the Moon is Full we look into ourselves and emotions are high, we use the Full Moon energy to recharge ourselves, it is a time of spiritual cleansing. When the Moon is waning (going away after a full moon), we expel bad and negativity from our lives.
Cycles of the Moon and Setting Intentions: When the moon is full or brand new is an especially good energy for setting intentions and meditation. New intentions come in with the new moon and what you don't want to focus on any more goes out with the old moon as it reaches its fullness. This sets a rhythm for your yoga practice.
