Hello loved ones! Below you will find step by step instructions for a Full Moon ritual you can do on your own or in a group. This Moon is in Taurus, making it a powerful time for us to get grounded and nourished as we prepare to take action to protect the rights and safety of ourselves and those around us. This is a simple ritual anyone can do.
I will be doing this ritual tomorrow evening at 8:30pm . You can join me energetically at that time or any time today, tomorrow or even Tuesday to catch this great energy.
Take pictures of your rituals and tag me in your posts!
What you will need:
1 pink, white, or black 7 day ritual candle (the kind in a glass container)
1 piece of aventurine
A way to clear and set your space (sage, palo santo, sanctified water, whatever you would use to cleanse your house)
An image of The Empress printed out (Google "Empress tarot Pamela Coleman Smith)
Rose oil or dried rose petals (optional)
STEP ONE: choose your candle. Go with what your gut tells you, whatever you are naturally attracted to. Don't overthink it.
STEP TWO: cleanse your space, holding the intention that you are preparing it for a sacred operation that only those beings working for the highest good of all are invited to
STEP THREE: gather your candle, aventurine, image, and pen and settle in to your cleansed space
STEP FOUR: if you have rose oil, put a drop in the top of your candle and trace it in a clockwise direction 3 times with your finger (if you are using a black candle, counter-clockwise is preferable) If you have dried rose petals, crumble them over the top of the candle. Just a few tiny pieces will do. Roses are symbols of love and passion. Here we are using them to increase the loving vibration of the operation and to ignite our passion for keeping our rights and our safety intact.
STEP FIVE: write one word on the back of the image of The Empress, keeping in mind this is an operation for the good of all. (Love, unity, peace, healing, strength, etc) then place your candle on the image with the image face up. The Empress is the eternal mother of the Tarot. She creates abundance and harmony through love, she is the master of encouraging everything to grow exactly as itself
STEP SIX: take a few moments to reflect on why you are doing this in accordance with the following - PINK if you chose a pink candle, you are committing to work on raising the level of love in your heart and the hearts of all WHITE if you chose a white candle, you are committing to work on raising the spiritual awareness of yourself and the world BLACK if you chose a black candle, you are committing to work to clear and transmute the sorrow, anger, and suffering of yourself and the world. Think of this like putting on your own oxygen mask first. You will be a beacon spreading this energy into the world.
STEP SEVEN: place the Aventurine on the image near the candle. Aventurine is a stone of optimism in the face of adversity. It will help you remain determined to act and find the wisdom and the balance to nourish yourself so you can be strong for others.
STEP EIGHT: light the candle and sit for a few minutes of quiet meditation on your purpose. Let the candle burn until it goes out on its own (keep it in a fire safe place) If you must extinguish your candle for any reason, do so by covering the container, not by blowing it out. Relight as soon as you can. The spell is not complete until the candle goes out.
STEP NINE: while the candle is burning, gather your resources. Find an organization in your community to volunteer for, seek out opportunities to mentor someone in your community, go to a demonstration, have a planning session with friends - take steps to find out how you can create positive action around you in ways great and small. When we get the new moon in two weeks, it will be time to burst forward with your plans.
