Each week, we reflect on the different stages, providing expert insights into how this can affect your energy, how you may be feeling, and why, with our moon guide Luisa Scilironi. Lu also shares insights into how you can best take advantage of the moon's energy and work with, rather than against, the natural flows of the lunar cycle.

April / May 2024

April’s energy has been intense, between the first Solar Eclipse at the start of the month and Mercury Retrograde for most of the month. Following this intense time we can take a deep breath, slow down and go inwards when we head into May.


Working With The Moon's Energy

The moon is beautiful, magical and powerful. Working with the lunar cycle is a powerful practice we can use to make positive shifts in our lives by harnessing the moon's energy. Each stage gives its own unique energy, and when we learn to harness this energy it can support us in our day to day lives.

New Moon

The New Moon is an exciting time to set our intentions. It is time to dig deep and be honest about what you really want to achieve and really connect with the reasons you want to achieve this.

First Quarter

This is a time to be reflective and commit to your intentions. It may also come with challenges. Looking back on the intentions you set, ask yourself if this is what you still want. If so, really commit to the intention and take action.

Full Moon

Full moon is a powerful time to tune in with your emotions and let go of what no longer serves you. When we let go of the things that do not serve us we open ourselves up to receive everything that does.

Last Quarter

This is the halfway point between the intensity of the Full Moon and the exciting potential of the New Moon. Use this time to celebrate the wins, reflect on the challenges and make any adjustments needed ahead of the next New Moon.
