What a powerful summer! Between the energy of the Black Moon, Mercury in Retrograde, and just a whole celestial shit storm of energetic movement - I think we are ALL a bit spent. For this Full Moon, it's best to scale back - take a breath, reflect on what's serving us, act with self-care and reflection in mind. We still have the New Moon to look forward to in a few week's time, and this will be when we can charge our energy for the upcoming Season. Don't worry about letting go, or charging your crystals, or manifesting. Focus on you + what your body needs - peace and the grace to allow it in.
Aquarius Full Moon Ritual
- Best Performed between August 15th-21st
- Cleansing Tools of Choice (smudging, oils, incense)
- A single white candle
- Meditation of Choice
- An essential oil or essential oil blend (we love the Full Moon Series of sprays and rollers for both this and the cleansing tools but it's not a requirement for this ritual - use what calls to you)
I choose to start every ritual by bathing (if I have time) or showering - this allows me to feel incredibly clear + cleansed prior to the ritual. It's not necessary, but I like to mention it. See my post re: bathing for a quick rundown on a bathing or shower ritual.
1.) Start by lighting your white candle and inhaling a few drops of your essential oil. Then, start cleansing your aura and your surroundings using your smudging tool of choice. As you cleanse your aura recite the following-
“I release and lift away all that is bothering me. I release and lift away the heavy burdens of my past and all that I no longer need to carry. I feel light, I feel aligned with my purpose; I feel the true power of all that lives inside me. I am cleansed. I am healed. I am restored. I am love.”
As you cleanse your surroundings, recite the following-
“This space is protected, this space is cleansed. All energies that no longer serve me, all energies that do not belong are now cleared from this space. My space is protected by the power of love and light and is a magnet for joy. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
2.) For this ritual, you are going to send love to the world however, you can also choose to send it to a specific person that is in need or that you may have some unresolved conflicts with.
3.) Once you have decided, close your eyes and take 10 deep breaths just to settle your mind, body, and soul.
4.) With your eyes still closed, visualize a white light coming from your heart center. See this ball of white light grow bigger with every breath. Once you can see the ball of white light nice and strong in your minds eye, imagine it traveling out to the world or to the person you had in mind.
Sending love to the world: see this white light traveling out of your heart, out of your room, out of your house, down the street, through the city, and around the world. Hold the image of the planet in your mind and see your white light filling it and radiating love in every corner. Keep this visual of the Earth bathed in your white, loving light going until you feel it is enough.
Sending love to a person: visualize the person standing in front of you and imagine sending this loving white light energy from your heart straight into theirs. Keep sending out the rays of white loving energy until you feel you have sent out all you could.
5.) Once done, see the white light traveling back from where it came, back into your room and into your heart. Feel all the love you just gave out returning to you 10 fold. Take 10 deep breaths here just imagining your white light sinking back into your body.
6.) When ready, open your eyes, stand up, shake yourself out, make a noise unique to you and cleanse your aura one more time using your same smudging tool. As you cleanse, recite the following-
“The love I send comes back to me times 10. The love I send fills my heart and the world. I feel free to be me. I feel released of all that weighs me down. I am light. I am love. I am my true and highest self.”
7.) Follow up with a 10 minute meditation of choice and a glass of water, wine or a cup of herbal tea.
Sending you Peace + Love!
