Do you feel a connection with the moon?
We are made up of mostly water and it is a proven fact that the moon affects the ebb and flow of the ocean tide….sooooo…..it makes perfect sense that we feel connected to the moon. Because we totally are.
Another cool thing to consider is that the prime time to plant seeds in the earth is around the time of the full moon because of the gravitational pull, water from the earth is drawn to the soil.
And…..not to mention the fact that humans are made up of mostly water….I am sure you are catching what I’m throwing here.
Needless to say, my fascination and the connection I feel with the moon seems to bring out the goddess gypsy in me.
Yup, goddess gypsy- full on! I find it super fun and sooooo healing to throw on my yellow legwarmers, turn on Deva Premal tunes, light candles, spread out oracle cards and burn shit.
Yes, burn shit.
I write down what I want to release in my life (guilt, shame, blame, judgement) on little pieces of paper.
I do my very best to connect to the the feeling I want to release. I do this by remembering an experience or moment where I felt one of these emotions and as I do, I light the piece of paper on fire under the full moon sky (outside) and watch it float away with full intention of releasing and healing.
I use a special burning pot that my son gave me for Christmas. Before that I used a tin plant pot. It is fun to have special “gypsy” tools…it makes your rituals more fun and unique..and powerful too.
Then I do a card reading. My fave spread is placing the cards in the shape of a circle (if weather permits outside under the moon light sky), then I focus on my breath, calm my mind and choose a card with the intention to receive the message that I most need to hear for this full moon cycle.
This time I was drawn to use my trusty “Path of the Soul” Fractal Energy Oracle cards (crazy accurate). Next I chose a Louise Hay affirmation (cut out and re-used from outdated daily flip calendar).
I hope this inspires you to embrace the power of the moon and celebrate it’s divine and universal power. This is a fun and powerful self-care ritual that can be done alone or with friends.
Do you have any moon rituals? Would love to hear them! Feel free to share & inspire by commenting to this post ❤
