Moon Flowers: Accessing the Past

Nearly all flower remedies utilize the power of sunlight to capture their therapeutic vibrational impulses. However the Moon Flowers, conceived and developed by Simon France of Aquarius Flower Remedies, are made under moonlight and have a very different energy to solarized flowers. They are used to heal the wounds we carry from the past, be that from this lifetime or previous lives  In this article Simon explains the differences between the qualities that radiate from the Sun and the Moon, and why the absorption of moonlight into flower remedies allows their healing to reach down into our souls, helping us to release deeply held dysfunctional energetic patterns we have carried with us for many years.



Sun and Moon

Although the Sun is 93 million miles away from the Earth, and the Moon a mere 1/4 million, within our sky these two celestial bodies are exactly the same size. This can be seen dramatically when the Moon eclipses the Sun and the lunar disk perfectly covers the face of the Sun. For those who look for the mysteries and magical aspects of life, this is not a freak coincidence of nature but a symbol pointing to the Sun and Moon having equal importance in our lives – the celestial Yin and Yang.

Spirit and Soul

The Sun is associated with daytime, light, being awake, conscious and aware. The Sun invigorates us, connects to our life-force, our spirit. The Sun shines its light into the darkness, the unknown, and therefore is synonymous with the fundamental concept of truth. It gives the Earth all the heat and light it needs to create and sustain life. In its presence we feel relaxed and joyful. Not only does it radiate a physical heat but a spiritual heat which we call love. The Sun sits at the all-important heart of the solar system, and within us our 'inner sun' can be found in our own heart, where we feel love, truth and life. The Sun's regularity and unchanging face points to the fact that love, light and truth are constant and eternal.

The Moon, however, has none of these associations, for it shines at night, when we sleep and dream. The sub-conscious is the lunar realm. Its light, reflected from the Sun, is pale and cold, making the world look very different. Within the realms of the Moon there is less to stimulate our senses, more opportunities for our inner world to emerge. Unlike the Sun, the lunar disk constantly changes. The Moon speaks to a different part of our being, yet a part that is as important to us as our solar spirit, life-force or ego. The solar part of our being is extrovert and projects, while the lunar part is introvert and reflects. This solar part can be considered masculine, while the lunar feminine. The Sun is our spirit and the Moon is our soul. Like the spirit, the soul is eternal.

Our spirit is the active and dynamic aspect of our eternal nature; it is always growing and maturing, continually moving on from experiences and adventures in search of the new – our spirit quests. On the other hand our soul's evolution or growth, occurs as a direct result of the spirit's action. The actions and reactions of our spirit's continual movement into the future leave impressions upon our soul. Our soul is the receptacle of our spirit's impulses, a reflection of its desires.

When we look at a new-born child we see its innocence and life-potential – this is its spirit. Yet when we look into its eyes we see a profound wisdom, the 'Child of the Universe' who has been here before and will be here again – this is its soul.


A belief widely accepted in the vast majority of cultures across the globe is that at some point after death the soul returns to Earth, incarnating once more into a physical body. The doctrines laid down by the early Christian Church some 1,600 years ago prohibited a belief in reincarnation. Unfortunately it has spent most of those years since, repressing any heretical sects that disagreed with the orthodox belief that on death we go to meet our maker, never to return. It is therefore not surprising that a belief in reincarnation is alien to the mainstream of our culture.

If, however, we open our hearts and minds to the possibility that our eternal soul incarnates, not once, but many times in the physical form, each time growing, maturing and evolving, we begin to perceive life with more depth. We can reconcile within us traumatic, tragic, negative or unlucky events if we believe that as their effects filter down they provide material from which the soul can grow and evolve, become wiser, more experienced and better equipped for future lives.

If we can remember that there are younger, less experienced souls walking the Earth alongside older, wiser souls, we are in a much better position to accept mistakes, failures, indiscretions, be less quick to criticise and more willing to accept and forgive.

Our perception of our own life and the lives of those around us is restricted so much by our inability to understand the workings of the soul as it evolves through many incarnations. However, if we can but acknowledge and accept this earthly limitation, we move towards a state of consciousness where we can begin to learn from, and make some sense of, the seemingly random and senseless nature of life.

Soul – Foundation that Shapes Life

The soul is like a slab of malleable clay that receives impressions from the experiences the spirit creates and encounters during incarnation. Many of these impressions are shallow and are washed away between lives and so do not become karmic in nature. However, over many incarnations the soul is shaped by the experiences encountered whilst in the physical form. It could be said that the soul develops a landscape – mountains, valleys and lakes that are retained through many life times. Although the personality is different in each life, it sits on top of the soul and is influenced by its contours.

Individual souls are often drawn to a whole series of incarnations where they encounter similar experiences. This continual repetition and reinforcement leaves profound impressions upon the soul, adding to the character of the soul's landscape. Many of these soul features are skills and talents that have been developed over a series of lives. 

Profound life experiences that have deep and far-reaching consequences can also leave lasting marks upon the soul and be carried across into future lives.  These types of experiences can be likened to a meteorite hitting the soul's landscape, or perhaps the eruption of a volcano. Although such events are not exclusively distressing and painful, the very nature of life in the physical body means that we are exposed and vulnerable to events that traumatize us to the very core of our being, wound us at the soul level.

We all have impressed into our soul wounds from previous lives. Frequently such karmic wounds reoccur in subsequent lives because the soul is wounded or weakened in a certain area and therefore vulnerable. Yet the soul is also drawn to what it knows, what it has experienced and therefore situations will arise that wound the soul in a similar fashion, rub salt into its wounds so to speak. Every karmic wound is a wise wound, a wound from which our soul learns deep lessons. Although we find the lessons painful, they are for our soul the fuel that propels spiritual evolution and growth. When our soul grows, we feel pain.

Healing with Moon Flowers

Having been lunarized, rather than solarized, the therapeutic energies of the Moon Flowers work upon the soul. At present there are 40 to choose from, all with a specific healing for the soul. Below are short descriptions of six of the Moon Flowers to give you an idea of what these remedies can be used for.


LUNAR ALDER eases present life problems that occur because of past life disempowerment through sexual servitude, rape, prostitution, abuse or family incest. It also treats the guilt and self-disgust of those who are aware that they have sexually abused in the past.

LUNAR GROUND IVY is for souls who have in a previous life suffered at the hands of an unfair legal system. They may have been wrongly accused and convicted, had an unfair trial, punished severely for a trivial offence and been unfairly labelled by society as a criminal.

LUNAR HAZEL can be given to heal deep or fatal wounds inflicted on the physical body by sharp or heavy weapons in a previous life. Such intensely traumatic injuries can resurface in future incarnations as complaints in the area of the body that was injured in a past life. Hazel is also used to aid release of old and outworn ideas, emotions or possessions that hinder living in the moment.

LUNAR POPPY is for those souls who have in previous lives stood on a battlefield and seen their comrades killed. Poppy is for the souls who have witnessed the most inhuman and barbaric scenes within the theatre of war. It also addresses the tensions created by losing loved ones during war.

LUNAR THISTLE is the remedy for past life imprisonment. Thistle treats the loneliness and isolation of past life detention. Being separated from loved ones has profound psychological effects that can manifest in present life relationships. Yearning to escape, deep frustration, anger and the over development of the inner life at the expense of the outer are all common symptoms of a past life behind bars.

LUNAR WOUNDWORT  can be used to heal any form of past life robbery, be it material, emotional, mental or spiritual. Lack of trust in present life relationships is a common symptom of this karmic condition. It is the remedy for those who have in the past been robbed or cheated of something that has been of great value.

There is a little story that tells of how we get our philtrum, the vertical groove in our face between the upper lip and nose. Before conception, as we are preparing to descend into our physical bodies, an angel, using its thumb, fore finger and middle finger, squeezes us just above the mouth to stop us remembering where we have come from. It certainly seems to work because we do have extremely poor recall of our time in the spirit worlds and previous lives.

Another use for the Moon Flowers is as a tool to help us access the past, reclaim our spiritual heritage. Simply by reading the descriptions of the remedies, we might be able to access our soul memory if one or more of the descriptions rings that bell deep down inside, makes the hairs on the back of our neck rise, provokes our intuition to say, 'that's me'. With access to a bottled set of the remedies we can hold each in turn and feel which one we need: the appropriate remedy will tingle in the hand.  Dowsing with a pendulum for a positive swing, either over the bottles or simply the names of the remedies, is also a well-tried and tested way of discovering which of the essences would be beneficial.

The Moon Flowers are at the stock level of dilution and can be used like any other flower remedy, two drops on the tongue, four times daily. Alternatively, the drops can be put in a glass of water to be sipped or made up into a dosage bottle.

Everyone has their own healing journey and their own way of responding to Moon Flowers. For some the effects of these essences are powerful and dramatic, particularly so if they are taken during meditation. For others their effects are gentle and subtle. Some clear the dysfunctional patterns within their souls very quickly with the aid of these remedies, while for others the process is much slower and more convoluted. Some therapists are drawn to using the Moon Flowers because they give access to a deeper level of wounding within the client, one that has not been consciously articulated.  For the soul the Moon Flowers facilitate evolution, while for the personality they provide a tool to help heal karmic wounds.
