SELENOPHILIA- A PERSON WHO LOVES THE MOON. COMING FROM THE GREEK GODDESS SELENE, WHO WAS GODDESS OF THE MOON. SHE IS KNOWN TO DRIVE THE HER MOON CHARIOT ACROSS THE SKY.
PEOPLE I SUFFER FROM SELENOPHILIA...............................AM I A SELENOPHILE?(that sounds bad)
There is something magical I really can not put into words. There is nothing more exciting then when I go outside to watch the fireflies, and the moon is so bright it makes me cast a shadow. It is almost like the moon is being naughty, and saying look Sun, I got my own shine. It is romantic, and secretive, even a bit dangerous.
For many years I did not notice the power of the moon. I would look at it and not feel it like I do now. Like it did not matter. Crazy, Right?
One day after traveling far and wide for several years, I went home.
It was the first time I ever saw the man in the moon . I looked up and it was like he was just suddenly there. He was looking down at me, saying "Nice of you to notice... I have been here forever, thanks for actually seeing me".
I knew there was something special in that moment. It has stayed with me ever since. Now I can not look at the moon and not see his face keeping an eye on me.
EVERY MONTH THE MOON CYCLES THROUGH ITS PHASES. It affects the waves, people, and animals. ( were-creatures.. ok, ok, had to say it) That is quite some pull there.
Full Moon- Waning Moon -Dark Moon -New Moon- Waxing Moon- Full Moon
EACH PHASE OF THE MOON IMPORTANT FOR DIFFERENT CEREMONIES, RITUALS, AND PRAYER. THE RIGHT MOON PHASE FOR THE RIGHT PRAYER OR INTENT.
Full: Abundance, harvest, wish-fulfillment, manifesting desires, sexuality, achieving all dreams, protection.
Waning: Letting go, clearing away, cleansing, releasing, shedding old patterns, undoing bindings, opening up problem-knots.
Dark: Rest, Peace, deep wisdom, divination, contacting the true self within, letting things die away completely before beginning again.
New: New beginnings, fresh starts, optimism, hope and faith,
Waxing: Building, accomplishments, creativity, strength, growth and learning, positive transformation.
And so it repeats over and over.
When praying, casting or using intent, you can use this list to help put some extra umph in what you are trying to accomplish.
