Supercharge your energy with Yasmin Boland’s lunar masterclass
THE KEY DATES…
FULL MOON in Capricorn on July 9 at 5.06am
NEW MOON in Leo on July 23 at 10.45am
This new moon is very loud and proud, being in Leo and conjunct with the planet of fire, determination and anger Mars. It will fill us all with extra fire power. Combined with the full moon and Pluto energy earlier in the month, it makes July pretty red-hot. If you use the new moon to make wishes and set intentions, this is a lunation not to miss! If your sex life has been down the drain lately, tune in and you could find some of the mojo returns. To use the new moon for manifesting, all you need to do is sit down with a pen and paper just after the new moon and write down your top 10 wishes and intentions for the month ahead. Don’t just think about it – do it!
THE NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN
The word which springs to mind looking at this full moon is a good old-fashioned “wow!” This is because a full moon is always intense. However, this one is all that and more, taking place as it does near the planet of power and explosions – Pluto. The good news is that Pluto is the detox planet, so this full moon is extra good for detoxing emotionally. Think about it – during every full moon our unresolved emotions often come to the surface for us to deal with. However, this month Pluto will be aiding and abetting this process. Watch out. It can be super intense. Breathe.
There are some very intense energies around this month, thanks to the new and full moons – info via @yasminboland #moonology
July’s full moon
The full moon is activating our root chakra. The chant for the full moon is “Lam!” Just light a candle or small fire, if you have a fire pit, and chant the word for a good 10 to 15 minutes, out loud. This will work on your root chakra, which is the one associated with the sign of Capricorn, where the full moon is taking place. If you can do an actual fast or detox on the day before the full moon, you could be amazed at the ‘stuff’ you shift. If you like to work with goddesses, talk to Kali!
If you like to work with archangels and the July new moon…
The archangel of this new moon is Archangel Raziel, who has a technicolour aura and knows how to turn heads. If there is someone whose head you would like to turn, whether that is a crush, friend or a potential employer, you can talk to Archangel Raziel, who also has powerful healing energies.
Use the new moon to connect to the Divine…
One of the most powerful ways to connect with the new moon is to use it as a portal to the Divine. Believe it or not, this is actually easier said than done. If you want to connect with spirit and your higher self, make your wishes and set your intentions as suggested above (remember to add some action points after each wish, mapping out how you plan to make your dreams come true). Next – meditate. Considering using the sacred Sanskrit chant “Om Namo Narayani”, meaning “I surrender to the Divine Mother”.
