Cards from Moonology by Yasmin Boland and Spellcasting by Flavia Kate Peters & Barbara Meiklejohn-Free
Many of us are strongly affected by the lunar cycle and the energy of the moon. Do you notice how your mood, energy levels, emotions, sleep patterns and even sometimes physical sensations are influenced by where the moon is in her cycle? Every month at the New Moon and the Full Moon, I create a channelled Vocal Sounding - a 'Lunar Sounding' to work with the moon's energy (and other astrological alignments) at that specific time.
These Soundings can help to balance or harmonise any challenging vibrations that we might be feeling uncomfortable with due to the New or Full Moon. They can also assist us to harness the energy to create shift and opportunity, should that be appropriate and desired!
Before channelling a Lunar Sounding, I always select an oracle card with the intention of getting to the core.... the (hidden) potential available from working with this particular Sounding at this specific time.... often the opportunities that are presented by the unique combination of this Channelled Sound and these astrological alignments can be surprising!

Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio May 2022
We are heading towards an exceptionally potent Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio in just a few days.... can you feel the intensity of the energy? The discomfort? As we are encouraged to delve into our shadows and release deep hurts?
A Full Moon in Scorpio is always an intense one as it shines an incredibly illuminating light into our shadows, and highlights to us those things we have deeply buried, and are ever so reluctant to bring up to the surface. With this Full Moon also being an Eclipse, this intensity is magnified.
Forgiveness is a big theme at this time, and if we are going to really succeed in shedding the older more dense energy, in order to live a life filled with more light and joy, then forgive we must! So, although this Scorpio Full Moon Eclipse may feel uncomfortable it is also providing us with an amazing opportunity.... to dig deep into those hidden recesses and clear the sludge!
We tend to think of forgiveness as a very active cognitive process. Questioning ourselves as to who we need to forgive and for what? Consciously running through things that have happened in our lives and listing events, situations and relationships that have caused us pain. Although this is a useful exercise to do, under this Scorpio Full Moon I would encourage you to dig deeper than that. Into the stuff that sits underneath the conscious mind. The stuff that we don't even realise is there. Including the stuff that we need to forgive ourselves for.... this is where it can really get tricky!
But if we don't even know it is there then how can we release it?
I would love to share this top tip with you.... when I want to really dig deep into the deepest, darkest depths, and target the stuff that I'm not even aware of, I try not to think about it at all. I don't journal (and I'm a big fan), I don't write lists, I don't meditate on it.... I set my intention, sit with myself, give myself permission to release, and surrender....
The Universe really does listen to our intentions, and I don't want to focus on something logical from my conscious mind, and miss all the good stuff (!)
For me this is where Sound really comes into it's own. Sound is a powerful mover and shaker. It knows where to go and it knows what to do. We just need to allow it. Cool huh?!
With practice you will be able to sense the energy shifting (if you don't already). Personally I experience spontaneous tears (not attached to thoughts) and physical twitches in my body. So when I am working with a sound journey or a sound meditation, I will listen to it repeatedly (usually once a day) until the physical response stops. And I know then that the work is done. You may have your own 'tells' of the energy shifting. I'd love to hear about them if you do.

How to listen
Please listen in a comfortable position, ideally sitting or lying down in a time/space where you aren't likely to be disturbed. I recommend wearing headphones for a more personal experience, but please use your own intuition. You may wish to keep a notebook or journal to hand, so that you can make a note of any insight you receive, or jot down anything about your experience that you might wish to remember.
Please be gentle with yourself after listening. If you feel ungrounded please drink some water and perhaps eat something. Going into nature will help too.
Please don't listen whilst driving or operating machinery.
You may work with this recording as often as you feel drawn to. A guideline would be once a day until the New or Full Moon, or even a day or two afterwards if you feel it is still benefitting you. Sometimes people listen just once and intuitively know that the Sounding has done what it needed to. There is no right or wrong way to work with these Lunar Soundings - please just do what feels right for you.
