In the hero’s journey, this is the sacred Marriage of resonate polarities, between the archetypes of Sun/Moon. In the menstrual cycle, this phase is ovulation. The egg is released from ovary into fallopian tubes and the possibility of ferritization is greatest. Metaphysically, this is when we fertilize our creations with thought seeds and manifestation rituals have the greatest potential. The prime hormone for this phase is estrogen which stimulates luteinizing hormone which stimulates the release of the egg. This is also the peak of testosterone in the cycle so we see a lot of hormonal stimulation at full Moon phase. The full Moon phase is about 72 hours, which also coincides closely to the time from onset of ovulation where fertilization is possible. Orgasm, ovulation, the moment of truth, polarity connection, endorphin high. Use foods that are packed with flavor, colorful, juicy and nutrient dense.

When something is breathtaking, turns you all the way on or blows your mind, ask yourself, “Am I dreaming?” Do your reality checks frequently to check your state of consciousness. This will help you recognize when things are dreamlike or unrealistic which are signs you are dreaming. Example: I was having tea with a friend when the handle to my green porcelain teacup broke off. I simply put the handle back on, and though crooked, was able to continue drinking tea. This dream sign altered me that I was dreaming and I was able to get lucid. In waking life, question the subtle cues. Pay attention, be observant, notice the subtleties, and live life like it is a type of dream.
