Tonight is the third successive Super Full Moon and the last Full Moon for 2016. By all accounts this one is going to be even more intense than the last two – and they were pretty full on! Are you feeling it?
I’ve worked a lot with black obsidian this year – particularly around full moons, and so I wanted to incorporate my favourite chunk of this gorgeous, moody volcanic rock into this week’s mandala. Black obsidian burns through the darkness, bringing new life and wisdom to all those who cross its path. It draws to the surface unresolved issues for release and healing. It dissolves destructive patterns, and lets old habits and traits surface, allowing love and acceptance of the total self.
Aquamarine brings in the courage required to confront and release these unresolved issues and destructive habits, while petrified wood is a stone of transformation. It is extremely grounding, healing and protecting, and encourages feelings of safety, security and wellbeing. Smoky quartz gently dissolves negative emotions when it comes into contact with them, while helping to manifest our dreams. And finally, rhodonite stimulates, clears and activates the heart chakra. It grounds energy, balances yin-yang, and assists in achieving one’s highest potential.
“One challenge at a time, I try to turn into the face of fear and tell it “you are not my master, you are the product of my self and I am your master.” I look into the monster’s eyes until it disappears. Then I am free.” ~ Rohvannyn Shaw
