These two phases, High noon and Full moon are equivalent. For they are both at their highest peaks. Strong, vibrant and felt upon and within yourself. High Noon is also known as 'Solar Noon'. A time to receive clarity. When indecisive; write your question down 24 hours prior of the next High noon. At the next High noon; stand outside, close your eyes, tilt your head back so the sun shines upon your face for a few seconds or until you feel a calmness. Then tilt your head downwards. Open your eyes and look at your paper. The first thing that comes to your mind should help with your thought process regarding the issue.
The full moon has always been known for empowerment, be it a person, coven, object, spell or ritual. It is connected to the Mother aspect of the Goddess as well to every woman young & old. A great time to honor and celebrate the Goddess. The full moon doesn't just illuminate the sky but the power inside of everyone.
