It’s crazy to think about how a celestial body some 250,000 miles from earth is responsible for the ocean tides that rise and fall every single day. In astrology, the sun is responsible for our zodiac personality and the moon is responsible for our emotions. Where the sun gives us our spirit, the moon gives us our soul.
The moon has a feminine energy in general which is responsive, reflective and receptive. Since about 70-80% of our bodies are water, it makes since that the Moon rules over how we react as well.
Sunlight helps lighten our mood so much that the lack of it can actually cause a type of depression called Seasonal Affective Disorder. Since the light of the Moon is reflective of Sun, the subtle glow of the moon can be just as valuable to us as the sunlight. Just as we create tea which the help of sunlight, we can also make tea with the help of moonlight.
A lunar infusion is simply an herbal tea, left to brew during the night under the soft moonlight. Lunar infusions make for an enchanting and fun full moon ritual. Sip in the morning to fill your body with Lunar Magic! Here’s how...
Lunar Tea Instructions:
- First, find a bowl, cup or pitcher that speaks to you and fill it with water.
