Full Moon Magic Ritual
We make space for the new by letting go of the old. we set our intentions at the New Moon, and amongst other things, release at the Full Moon. As it reflects the light of the Sun, the Full Moon illuminates our inner worlds, and reveals to us what we’re hanging onto.
This is the perfect time to pay attention to what we’re holding onto, and to let it go.
(when’s the next Full Moon?
Terrible things do happen, of course. These experiences can be the fuel to create lasting change, for ourselves and for others.
Full Moon is a time of “action”. So, take purposeful action at this moon phase.
On the personal development level, as you focus on what you want to cultivate in your life, you may benefit from letting go of that which is operating at the subconscious level — once you have fully felt and processed your emotions, and taken any appropriate action.
We can hoard all kinds of things, from emotion to physical possessions, from the old clothes (and goodness knows what else) have a junk draw or in my case a few they get to the point where I have to clear it all out lol to the files clogging up our computer hard drive, outmoded ways of operating in the workplace, old money stories, and what happened to us in childhood.
And how to release?
As you know I’m a busy witch mother so low key witching is my thing and I don’t always have time to commit to long rituals as much as I would like so here are three easy Full Moon release Rituals
As the saying goes wash your troubles away
Full Moon bath/ shower and allow yourself to fully feel what is coming up for you at this time.
Write it down, talk it out, allow your body to fully immerse in the emotion, then… Wash it off.
Take a shower, frolic in the ocean, luxuriate in the bath, dance outside in the rain.
And of course, the oldie but goodie cry it out.
Crying can be incredibly cathartic, transmuting grief and pain as you literally let it go.
How does it feel to have that weight lifted from your chest?
Burn baby burn ( I bet you didn’t say that with out singing the song!)
Write down on a piece of paper what is no longer serving you:
- What are you afraid of?
- What are you really afraid of?
- Who are you angry at?
- Who has slighted you?
- What frustrates you?
- What is holding you back from your New Moon intention?
- Who do you need to forgive? (don’t leave yourself off the list)
Get your pen and put pen to paper, then grab your lighter, your candle, and burn that list even better and gather a group of your sisters and gather around a fireplace, campfire- or candlelight will do.
In the words of Taylor swift Shake it off
This one you can do at home with music cranked in your lounge-room, this has to b e one of my favs btw or get outside into nature, the beach, or even the park and just feel the music.
Go even better- get together with a group and have a good laugh while you’re doing it- the best medicine!
Go for it! Shake your booty shake your whole body, get your whirl on.
Return to your New Moon intention: what did you invite into your life in this lunar cycle?
Do you feel like you have now created more space to welcome this in?
Observe and embrace the moon magic
What comes into your life as a result? I’m a big believer in paying attention to results to determine effectiveness, so pay attention to whether things start to shift and change in your external world as a result of you letting go through these simple release practices.
