The Full Moon is well known for driving people to lunacy, aggression, and in extreme cases, even lycanthropy. While it is unlikely that being born under a Full Moon will literally turn you into a werewolf, it is true that the Moon is intimately tied to a person’s emotions - and may have more control over you than you think.
When a Full Moon occurs, the Moon is located directly opposite the Sun. That means that your Sun Sign, which controls the mind, and your Moon Sign, which controls the heart, are in conflict with each other. As a person who is born under the influence of the Full Moon, your life tends to be driven by internal struggles between what you know is logical, and what your heart truly wants. Worse, you might have a multitude of different desires, pulling you in all sorts of different directions. This is the reason why you may come off as inconsistent or indecisive to others.
This can be an asset in some cases, as your friends may find your unpredictability to be attractive and exhilarating. In situations where stable and consistent behaviour is expected, however, people might consider you to be flaky, or even two-faced.
Despite this, it may be counterproductive to suppress your emotional side. Generally, people who were born on a Full Moon are more attuned to rhythms - both in the natural world and internally. You can become more successful if you harness your natural ability to ride the highs and lows of your emotional cycle, and leverage it to live a life balanced in between the extremes of your personality.
This is especially important since as a child of the Full Moon, your emotional energies can be very potent if you channel them appropriately. The trick? Allow yourself to give into the pull of your emotions and desires, especially the ones that might seem too unconventional or crazy. Being able to listen to yourself and follow your truest, strongest impulses is what’s going to pull you out of the stagnation that can come with wanting so many contradictory things. Being honest with yourself allows you to feel more grounded, since your energies are going to be more harmonious and focused on what makes you truly happy. This energy is what draws people to Full Moon children - but in different ways depending on your personality.
If you’re an extrovert, your energy will be channelled outwards. Extroverted Full Moon children tend to have a powerful, luminous presence. When you walk into a room, people notice - like we notice whenever the Full Moon rises into the night sky. You are capable of being extremely active, fun, and wild - all traits that make people gravitate towards you.
For those of you who are introverts, your Moon energies tend to be channelled inwards. People might not be conscious of it, but you have this subtle inner glow that is inexplicably attractive. You have a touch of quiet lunacy about the way you hold and express yourself, which intrigues people and makes them want to be around you - and they probably won’t even understand why, which just adds to your mystique.
You’ll also want to pay attention to the phases of the Moon, since they’re intimately linked with your internal energy. During the Waxing Crescent Moon, you should take advantage of the momentum of the rising lunar force and begin planning for the future. Set ambitious goals, but also break them down into small, realistic steps. You are more likely to come up with a successful plan during this period. Of course, you should review these goals periodically, and the Waxing Gibbous Moon is a great phase for that.
If you’ve prepared sufficiently during the Waxing Moon phases, you are likely to feel more energetic and inspired when the Full Moon rolls around, like you can do anything as long as you set your heart to it. Really listen closely to your heart during this phase - it’s likely that all sorts of impulses and desires are going to rise to the surface of your consciousness. You may feel compelled to take risks and do all sorts of crazy things that will horrify your rational side. That may not be such a bad thing, however. Combined with your increased energy, optimism, and alertness, you are actually more likely to succeed in whatever goals you choose to pursue during this Moon phase. It still pays to be careful, though - it’s possible to get too drunk on the brilliance of the Full Moon, which can make you overestimate your chances of success.
On the flip side, people who were born on the Full Moon generally feel tired and lethargic when the Moon is waning, especially during the Waning Gibbous Moon and the Waning Crescent Moon. Your ebbing energy makes this period an excellent time to let go of any anger, tension, and anxiety. This lethargy reaches a peak during the New Moon, since the Moon’s energy is completely blocked by the Earth during that period. This may be a good time for you to rest, reflect, and regain your energy. Don’t try to do anything overly ambitious or taxing. Having regular downtime to just chill is essential - without it, you won’t be able to shine your brightest during your Full Moon moments. If you’ve been experiencing an unusual rate of failure recently, it may be because you’ve been driving yourself too hard. In that case, a nice New Moon mini-vacation might be just what you need to pull yourself back together.
The most dangerous Moon phases, however, are the First Quarter and the Third Quarter Moons. During Half Moons, you are equally under the influence of the moon’s darkness and light. All your internal conflicts will surge to the surface – and if you can’t find your inner balance, this can lead to a complete mental breakdown.
For a child of the Full Moon, the most crucial key to success is the ability to balance your inner contradictions. You need to be able to ride with the flow of your natural energy cycles, instead of fighting it all the way, or letting it take control of you completely. If you can master the art of maintaining an active equilibrium between emotions and logic, between your dark side and your bright side, between the external and the internal - that’s when you know that you have awakened to the full potential of a Full Moon child.
At this stage, you are exceptionally competent at executing any task and bringing it to full completion. Being practiced in reconciling different aspects of your contradictory self, you are known for your skill at negotiating complex social situations, where you can connect people to each other even if they hold vastly different views and perspectives. Since you’ve learned how to listen to yourself, you’re also great at listening to and understanding others. You are highly emotional, spontaneous, and empathetic, and most importantly, you never apologize for being who you are.
