For the last week, I’ve felt a deep awakening within. . .and the culprit is the Full Moon in Aries on October 5, 2017 at 2:40 pm EST. Typically, the energy of the Full Moon can be felt 2 or 3 days before and after the Full Moon and is known to heighten your senses, especially your 6th sense. As you continue to connect with the Moon cycle, you will not only become in tune with her energy, but your natural rhythms will also begin to mimic hers.
Each Full Moon, I connect with the astrological and elemental influences to create a ritual and understand what impact the energies are having on the mind, body and soul. I am not an expert, only a seeker on a quest to understand myself better and potentially help others do the same.
The medicine of Full Moon allows you to delve deeper by illuminating and reflecting what you are projecting into the Universe. The Full Moon is also ideal for exfoliating and cleansing energy that isn’t allowing your inner light to shine. You can harness the energy of the Aries Full Moon to release inauthentic aspects of yourself, lies you tell yourself to avoid dealing with pain, and break away from illusions that prevent you from seeking the truth.
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 on my altar & said a prayer, and that was enough. You can also do your ritual a day before, on the day or a day after the Full Moon, as the energy is still potent.
Writing is sacred medicine for the soul that can help not only heal, but also kindle the fire within. I am yearning to create space for channelling my thoughts and emotions for the Aries Full Moon ritual. Writing that is unfiltered and not calculated feels sacred to me. If you feel the need to release built up stagnant energy then you will be drawn to this ritual.
Before you start, cleanse your space with sacred herbs, incense or resin. Delve into your heart and reflect on what you need to purge then on a piece of paper write down all that needs to be released. I urge you not to go back and read what you have written, as that invites the energy back on a cellular level. Fold the piece of paper three times and seal with a black candle wax then burn. You can use your cauldron or another sacred tool to safely burn the piece of paper.
As you watch the paper burn, visualize yourself breathing in divine light through your nose and releasing smoky coloured energy out through your mouth. Continue to focus on your breathing until the paper is completely burned. You can also bury the ashes from the paper or flush them down the sink to thoroughly release the energy.
After you have done releasing, hold the energy of the upcoming Libra New Moon on October 19th in your heart and write how you want to feel and also what actions you need to take to achieve that visualized state. When you are done, fold the piece of paper three times like before, but seal with white candle wax and put on your altar or keep safe in a secret place. On October 19th, break open the seal and connect with what you wrote to help you plant the seeds of inspiration for the New Moon.
