Harness the Unique Energy of Each Month’s Full Moon With This Calendar and Mantra Guide

Maxine Garcia
By  | 

Our infatuation with the full moon and other lunar phases began long ago. From ancient philosophers to native tribes to modern moon goddesses, our love for Bella Luna is universal. We are in awe of her glow, shining full and brilliantly with each passing month.

A full moon occurs every 29 to 30 days when the moon reflects the sun’s rays from the opposite side of the Earth. As the only natural satellite of our planet, the full moon has a direct effect on Earth’s rhythm and energy. The moon’s gravity pulls at the Earth, causing tides in the oceans and other bodies of water. It’s also known to slow the Earth’s rotation.

The Algonquin tribes were the first to use the full moon to track the passing months. They used it as a primitive calendar, giving them distinct names that aided in scheduling timelines for hunting, planting, and harvesting.
 
To align the traditions of the Algonquin tribes to the life of a modern yogi, use this moon healing mantra and suggested healing crystal that represents the energies of each full moon.

March – Worm Moon

The Worm Moon is a time when the ground begins to thaw and soften, causing earthworms to re-appear and birds to re-emerge from their nests. The energy of the Worm Moon is all about renewal. This is the time to revitalize the mind, body and soul and is the perfect time to start a healthy new habit.

Spend lots of time outdoors, and smell the flowers.

June – Full Strawberry Moon

The Strawberry Moon was used by tribes as a signal to gather ripening fruit. It’s also called the minimoon because it’s at the furthest point from Earth, which makes it look slightly smaller than usual. Bringing about sweet and fruitful energy, this is the perfect time to indulge. Give yourself permission to honor your mind, body, and soul.
 
Strawberry Moon Mantra: “When I allow myself to indulge, my mind, body, and soul thrive”

Just like bucks grow into their statuesque beauty, emulate the forces of nature to allow yourself to grow to your full potential. Sing, dance, take an art class. Channel creative energy to realign your power.

August – Full Sturgeon Moon

This was a time for tribes to feast and appreciate the harvests pulled from the Earth. Take this time to focus on your health. In order to create bountiful energy, we need to be in touch with the areas of our life where we feel strongest, as well as identify the parts of our lives where we need to pay more attention to.
 
Sturgeon Moon Mantra: “When I am in touch with the energy within me, I create my strongest self”

September – Full Corn Moon

The Corn Moon was named after the corn harvest. This bright, golden-hued globe shines when the full moon is nearest to the Earth and marks the autumnal equinox. This is the perfect time to focus on a ritual. Create a sacred time for yourself to manifest self-love and gratitude. If you do not practice a specific ritual, you can find one here.
