The moon is an awareness. You can harness this vibration, this awareness of moon to assist you in your life when you pay attention to its rhythms. Man has known about the mystical power of the moon for eons so it's nothing new but it is again making its esoteric powers known.
As I have learned and would like to share with you, "the full moon is a perfect time to release anything you're done with, the new moon is the time to focus on manifesting desires and intentions and the evening before the full moon is an optimal time for healing."
This is not superstition but a real power that exists in nature which can be used as a tool of manifestation. There is much written about this that you can look into and is being used by people who have knowledge and experience of the moons powerful vibrational influences on humanity.
Let go of whatever social, religious or professional filters you have that might cause you to not believe in the moon's awesome powers. They are real. Try to become aware of and use the moon's cyclical nature. You will find it to be a helpful sphere in making your intentions manifest.
Don't howl at the moon; become moon!!!
