When someone says ‘Once in a Blue Moon’ you know what they mean: rare, unusual, seldom, infrequently. This year it means ‘the end of July’. As on Friday 31st July there is a Blue Moon. A Blue Moon is when there are 2 Full Moons in one month. Let this rare occurrence inspire you. What dreams, hopes, desires would you love to actually manifest in your life? Things that maybe you’ve putting off because they only happen ‘once in a blue moon’? People love to tell us the myriad of reasons why our dreams won’t come true, why we should stay on the straight and narrow and tow the party line – this comes from fear and insecurity. Don’t let your wings be clipped – you only have one life so why not live it? In the words of Marianna Williamson:


‘Your playing small does not serve the world
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
It’s not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.’


However crazy this sounds to you and however sceptical you feel, will you do me a favour on Friday?


After it’s dark go outside and look up to the Full Moon (even if it’s cloudy!) and share a little secret with the moon. Tell it what dream your heart desires, what you would like to manifest in the next lunar cycle, what first steps you want to take to make things happen for you. If you dare maybe even ask the moon for help – crazy I know but just try it this once for me and see what happens when you harness the power of the Full Moon. If you feel like celebrating with some yoga, try my online Lunar Flow Class which you’ll find in my Online Yoga Studio.
