The Leo Solar Eclipse was intense, potent & fiery . . . and now my soul is yearning for the soothing energy of the Full Moon in Pisces on September 6th at 12:03 am (PST). I am not an astrology expert, but like to dabble here and there . . . what I know from personal experience is that Pisces has a dreamy energy that is intuitive, emotional, and psychedelic.
For the Pisces Full Moon Ritual, I feel drawn to sharing a water cleansing ritual to help release illusions, stagnate energy and low vibrating thoughts. I find that a water cleanse is ideal for Pisces, which is a water sign. Also, cleansing with water is different than with smoke, as the release is on more of a subconscious level.
If you take a glance around your home, you will find sacred tools that connect with the energy of the Pisces Full Moon. The secret to creating an altar is to only use sacred tools that connect with you and hold a magical purpose in your ritual. The altar in the photo is from the 2015 Pisces Full Moon.
You are welcome to use my ritual or adopt parts to help you create your personalized one. Please know that you don’t need to do a ritual for each Full Moon or New Moon, only connect to the ones you feel drawn to. Your ritual doesn’t need to be complicated. At times, I’ve lit a candle & said a prayer and that was enough. Also, you can do your ritual a day before, on the day or a day after the Full Moon, as the energy is still potent.
The energy of the Full Moon illuminates your current emotional state, so if you are grounded and centered then that will be magnified, but if you feeling chaotic then that energy becomes exaggerated. Typically, the energy of the Full Moon can be felt 2 or 3 days before and after the Full Moon.
To cleanse with water, I begin by fill a singing bowl with water that I captured from the last rainfall (not typically hard to do on the west coast of Canada), but there has been no rain lately, so water from a natural source such as the ocean or lake is fine. You can also use tap water, which is what I did!
I ring the singing bowl to infuse the water with beautiful uplifting vibrations. Alternatively, you can place the water in a regular bowl and play a drum, rattle, bell or any other musical instrument. When I feel in my heart space that the water has been charged, I take a few sprigs of sage and dip them in the water. You can replace sage with a cedar branch or another herb that resonates with you! I’ve used rosemary for the water cleanse in the past.
I gently move the sprigs of sage around my aura starting at my Crown Chakra then slowly move down until I reach my Root Chakra. As I cleanse, the water droplets from the sage fall onto my skin and help me purify my mind, body & soul. You can also call on a Goddess connected to the element of water and/or moon for the ritual.
