I have shared a few times information about Moon energy for women and how important it is for us. It is important both to know about it and to be connected to it. Today I would like to mention three levels of Moon energy in us and how they are all different from each other. Upon reading, try to contemplate and meditate about it, maybe journal. And see if you have something going on and if you feel like this is something you like or dislike, and why. In other words, I invite you to explore the Moon energy in you.
We will look at it from Ayurvedic perspective, as this approach covers all three levels and gives wonderful explanations. The three levels are: sattvic or harmonious, rajasic or frantic, and tamasic or ignorant.
Sattvic Moon or Moon in harmony is about complete acceptance. The main message here is “I deeply and completely accept myself”. It is wisdom.
Acceptance all of your qualities, including all “negative ones”, is wisdom. It is the ability to support and listen, it is an internal flexibility, softness, acceptance of your age, acceptance of all your physiological and biological processes. Also, it is the ability to stay internally peaceful and focused on you and your inner state of being.
If we talk about relationships, harmonious Moon is about following your desires, ability to listen to your soul, support of your partner, ability to develop relationships in a feminine way. It is also about acceptance of the motherhood and your role as a mother, as well as your own harmonious relationships with your mother. And last, it is the ability to live through difficult times with confidence in happy ending.
On the level of space, it is about creation the space of harmony and love, where both woman and her man feel comfortable and cozy. It is the ability to create magic and trust towards the world. It is the ability to create “home” and fill it with life and coziness. As well as the ability to fill yourself with all Nature elements: water, fire, earth, air and ether. Harmonious Moon on this level is also about the ability to parent children.
Sure Signs of Sattvic Moon
? Desire and ability to take care and love all living creatures, friendliness towards all of them.
? Love and respect towards mother, regardless of her level of consciousness and growth.
? Complete peace and great gratitude towards everything that you come in contact with.
? Great sense of internal happiness that is independent from outer circumstances.
? Love towards dairy products.
? Complete control of emotions, only mindful and conscious emotional reactions.
? Serious and meaningful attitude towards conception, pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
This is the Moon that is out of balance. The message on this level is “I am not sure what I really want”. It is search.
Rajasic Moon is about often mood changes, from sadness to ecstatic happiness. It is also often about denying or ignorance of feminine qualities like flexibility, adaptability and humbleness. On the opposite, this Moon is about the desire to be always active, to control everything, to worry about everything and inability to stay in one place. You always want to rush somewhere and do something, hustle. It is an infinite search of self.
On the level of relationships Rajasic Moon manifests as resentment towards men, ignorance of man’s role and nature, denying of your own “negative” qualities, i.e. fight with oneself.
On the level of space it is instability in all main areas of life: family, health, vocation and finances. It is also uncleanliness of the house, as well as difficulties with conception and children in general.
Sure Signs of Rajasic Moon
? Very disturbed unstable mind, constant emotional tossing and rushing due to strong uncontrolled emotions for any reason.
? Great attachment towards your children and total indifference towards children of others.
? Increased sentimentalism, strong and constantly changing emotions.
? Unstable feeling of happiness, that depends on the emotional perception of the outside circumstances.
? Disrespectful attitude towards mother, consumerism behaviour towards her. The opposite – excessive dependency from her.
? Main emotion that the whole life is built on is fear.
? Main idea in parenthood here is for children to receive expensive or prestigious education, when development of morality and values becomes the second or third priority.
Tamasic Moon is about ignorance and stagnation, passiveness. The main message of Tamasic Moon is “I am lost in this life”. It is about dead end.
This is the manifestation of the dark side of the feminine in its excessive form. Tamasic Moon comes out as depression, crying, disappointment in oneself or in life, and even self-hatred. Feminine energy in Tamasic Moon is about attaching man towards yourself with sex, for instance. And sometimes sex may not even bring joy to the woman herself. It is also about health issues with female organs and infertility.
If we look at relationships level, it is conflicts with mother and men. Tamasic Moon manifests in woman trying to “mother” her partner. It is also about frequent break ups and inability to live through and handle divorce or temporary difficulties. It is also sexual frigidity.
On the level of space it is the feeling of loss in the world, inability to feel your own space in life. It is about not accepting duties in the house and seeing them as slavery.
Sure Signs of Tamasic Moon
? Very bad memory.
? Excessive self-consciousness, inability to control and direct emotions, or on the contrary – complete emotional suppression.
? Frequent tantrums, deep depressions and great fears.
? Great internal dissatisfaction in life.
? Inability or lack of desire to take care of loved ones.
? Hatred towards mother and children, lack of desire to have children, abortions.
? Not drinking enough water, consuming a lot of alcohol, coffee and intolerance or strong dislike towards dairy products.
Throughout life all women can have their Moon energy on all different levels, as usually it changes depending on the circumstances. The important thing is, not to get stuck in one of the two negative scenarios as it brings negative results in life. And ones you identify them, you can try to improve your relationships with the Moon by doing various practices I mentioned earlier.
Moon energy in woman’s life is something that allows her to stay in contact with her soul, and to perceive this world in a feminine way. That is why weak or disturbed Moon energy can prevent us from understanding ourselves and our nature. Moon kindly and lovingly directs us towards our own soul, where we can find true self-value and self-understanding.
May your Moon be strong and nourishing.
