The main meanings of the Full Moon

In the East, this Full Moon is called Vesak festival. It commemorates the birth, enlightenment and death of the Buddha. The Buddha teaches: ...Give up your desire, but not before it has consumed itself

The main theme of this Full Moon is working with our desires and their identification and recognition.

Some desires are sincere as they are coming from the heart, and others are imposed and alien because they are coming from the outside.

Our task is to learn to see and distinguish our true desires, and then be able to implement them.

The energy of this Full Moon increases emotional tension.

Deep and intense feelings, emotions, and experiences may arise. Hidden fears and secret resentments may surface. The mood may change in the most unexpected ways.

There may be a desire to demonstrate originality, act in a bizarre way, or change the environment abruptly.

Original thoughts and ideas may come to mind. There may be a craving for reviewing our lives, events, and situations. Memories from the past may surface and old acquaintances may appear out of the blue .

During this period, it may be difficult to promote yourself and achieve social fulfilment.

Sentimentality and illusions may fill our feelings. Frivolous connections without any future potential may appear. We may want more love than usual. There may be a desire to give gifts or receive them.

There will be an opportunity to make progress in the beauty sphere and increase our importance, but it is better to avoid illusions and self-deception here.
