Full Moon Ritual
A Full Moon is symbolic of an emotional awakening, enlightenment or nirvana. The Sun and Moon are at equal degrees and directly opposite each other. The full face of the Moon lights up and shines with the light of the Sun.
Around the time of a Full Moon, you can more easily see things under the surface or behind the mask. Maybe you were in denial of something, such as your honest thoughts and feelings. Or maybe you receive higher insights that clarify an issue. Something hidden may get exposed.
There may be some emotional intensity which shows you what you really love and value, getting you closer to your most authentic goals that deeply satisfy you.
“Look deep, deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” –– Albert Einstein To Margot Einstein, after his sister’s Maja’s death, 1951; quote by Hanna Loewy in A&E Television Einstein Biography, VPI International, 1991.
A Full Moon also represents the time of harvest. You are now reaping what you sowed at the New Moon – whether you realized you were growing seeds or not.
A Full Moon is an excellent time to assess your goal, objective, or project started at the New Moon. Is it turning out the way you intended? Or maybe not quite so much?
Now is the time to make adjustments before establishing your goal or objective in your life.
Around the time of a Full Moon, Cosmic forces support both small adjustments and major shifts. Changes you make this week are more likely to succeed and align with your True Heart, because your intuition and emotions are more clear.
You can also move past setbacks and roadblocks more easily this week. If your goal or project brings you bliss, your intuition (higher intelligence) and emotions are tools to navigate more difficult challenges.
Here are some ideas for your Full Moon ritual:
You can do anything you want for your moon ritual. Just make it conscious and authentic.
To start your moon ritual, you might have a simple plan or write down the order of events. This allows you to be in the present moment which is necessary to align with your goal in present reality. THIS IS HOW THE MAGIC HAPPENS! Otherwise, your goal remains just a fantasy.
To remove all distractions and come into the present moment, you might take time to clean your sacred space, close your eyes, and patiently allow thoughts to pass and fade out.
Or, you might set firm boundaries and take charge of your energy. Everything is alive, even synthetic objects because everything is energy. Connect with the living essence of the universe within you and see your goal or project from a state of EMPOWERMENT.
When you’re ready, you can indicate the start of your ritual by ringing a bell, chanting a mantra, drawing a tarot card, or simply saying, “So we begin.”
