Moon exhaustion

I can’t count how many moons I have wanted to prepare a ritual for and the likes, but I’ve started to notice a pattern that I can’t quite seem to understand.

Any moons that happen in my signs(Sag Sun, Libra Moon, Scorpio Rising), I am of course excited to work with the energies. When it comes to the day or even days before the moon, I am absolutely exhausted. Not so much mentally, but physically. I fall into deep sleeps all throughout the day/night.

Does this happen to anyone else? I can’t recall if I have Pisces in my chart but I was knocked out for this moon cycle.

I get exhausted the day after a full moon and in sort of a funk. Especially if the day before I was busy doing things for the moon energy and yesterday was full of making things, setting things up, doing things. Today I’m just drained and in a funk. I noticed it the last full moon or any moon that I have done any kind of spell or ritual for, or any time that I do and magical workings, I have remembered to ground myself before and afterwards, but sometimes I am just totally drained the day after.

I get it too! I planned the moon ritual last night. But had family come over just to say hi. Which is sweet! However, they stayed a bit longer than I thought and by the time they left, I felt so tired! I could not do any ritual. Only thing I did was put my tools out to energize and make :full_moon: water.
However, tonight I will be doing my ritual. Feeling a bit tired and like you say, “sleepy” So I’m not sure why. But I do notice I do get tired around the full :full_moon:. Must be since I’m becoming more in tune with its power I’m noticing it more!? Now when I close my eyes I can actually feel it’s shape and precense. Where as before I began my journey I never could feel anything . Therefore, I assume I’m growing spiritually…

Full Moon hangover time!! :full_moon:

The moon brings out a lot in us just like it can give us a power boost. Some people hate the full moon for this reason!

@janelle I wouldn’t blame it on the moon in Pisces, but I would do a meditation to release some of that energy. Perhaps a centering such as a body scan meditation and then a grounding meditation or any other grounding techniques.

I took in a lot of that lunar energy last night and today I started a fire on the kitchen stove first thing in the morning :fire:

A relaxing bath should also help!

A fire?:fire:Oh no!:fire_extinguisher:is everyone and everything ok?:pleading_face: I have the biggest phobia of fire! It Began as a child (4 yrs) I had a fire drill and the teacher warned the class before hand. When it came time, I zoomed out the class, down the hall out the building and around the corner. I refused to go back! I also had an aunt and 3cousins pass in a house fire. They were found in the stairs :persevere: so close to the door. But when I learned more about reincarnations, I believe that I was in a bad fire. I haven’t been in this lifetime. But yeah, that’s my greatest fear.

Fire can be scary! I dropped food on the burner and it made a big flame. We have an old stove.

The alarm was beeping, there was smoke everywhere, and the fire extinguisher we have was empty. I had to do use a wet towel but in those attempts I sacrificed 2 towels and now the kitchen floor is burnt… :neutral_face:

Always be careful with fire!!

Ohh goodness- that’s unfortunate about the towels and floor. I’m glad everyone was okay though! :pray: It sounds like a very scary experience- fire is an important part of life and magick, but I agree with @christina4, it can indeed be terrifying!

The changing of the seasons always make me feel that the energy is the air is extra charged. With so many changes in the world around us, this may be effecting your own energy and could potentially lead to feeling stressed or burned out! I love this guide to spellwork fatigue that has tips on post magick recovery :+1:

I hope everyone was able to absorb some powerful moon energy and that those feeling exhaustion have started to recover! :full_moon:

I know what you mean, I have a boost of energy which grows from New Moon to Full Moon, by the time I get to Full Moon i’m exhausted, and then Full Moon to New Moon is spent almost recovering from it.

I definitely had spell/moon exhaustion yesterday with background depression. I was okay once the moon came back in the evening. I felt more like myself. I didn’t do anything last night, I kind of just hung out and we watched a couple of movies.

I’m glad everyone is okay @Francisco, I have fire PTSD. My boyfriend and I were awoken to a fire and had to jump out of the bathroom window. For a long time if I woke up and saw any kind of bright light especially with a yellow or orange hue, I would jump out of bed and be out of the room before I realized it was the lights from a car or on a truck. Now I am super careful with candles or I use incense, diffusers, or wax melts if I can.
