The Moon goes Full in Sagittarius the same day Jupiter stations direct after a 4 month retrograde cycle that gave us some keen insights into the manner and direction of our development as whole beings. I wrote about how to tap into the energy of the Jupiter shift in my column on The Numinous this month. For this Full Moon, we seek to harness Sagittarian fire to create. What we create depends on what guidance each of us is receiving from Jupiter, but the common theme is creating in precise alignment with our Highest Good.
To identify the best target for our creative energy with the perfect aim of the Archer, we call on Air of Fire, the King of Wands. The King of Wands is the master of the element of Fire. He weilds intuitive action easily and directs it with great cunning. For this operation, The King of Wands will guide us as we determine and develop exactly what we are here to create at this moment in time.
You will need:
· 1 orange 7-day ritual candle in glass container
· 1 piece of Orange Calcite
· 1 printed image of the King of Wands
· Pen or pencil
· Tumeric (optional)
· Bergamot oil (optional)
STEP ONE: Cleanse your space, holding the intention that you are preparing it for a sacred operation and that only those beings working for the highest good of all are invited
STEP TWO: Gather your supplies and settle in to your cleansed space
STEP THREE: (optional) Put one drop of Bergamot oil in the top of the candle and trace it with your finger 3 times clockwise around. Bergamot oil invigorates the body, mind, and spirit. We use it here to energize our entire beings and ingnite the fire of creation.
STEP FOUR: (optional) Sprinkle a small amount of Tumeric in the top of the candle. Tumeric is associated with Fire and with the Divine. We use it here to sustain the fire ignited by the Bergamot oil and to connect our work to our Highest Good in partnership with the Divine.
STEP FIVE: On the back of the printed King of Wands card, describe your creation. Be specific and concise in your description and keep your phrasing in the present tense. It may be immediately clear what your creation is, particularly if you have been working with this Jupiterian energy. If it is not, sit quietly in meditation until you receive an answer.
If you are not receiving an answer or remain confused, then instead write down your appeal to the Divine for clarity on where your Fire energy can be best spent. Meditate daily with your candle with the intention of receiving an answer. Be patient. You will receive an answer at the exact perfect time for you.
STEP SIX: Place the orange candle and the Orange Calcite on top of the King of Wands image (image side up). Orange Calcite carries a powerful but playful creative energy. It reminds us to enjoy the process and our role as creators.
STEP SEVEN: Light the candle and spend a few minutes in quiet meditation reflecting on the beauty and contentment of your new life. Know that the Moon, the Universe, and all your Guides and Angels and Ancestors will be here to assist and support you. Let your candle burn until it goes out on its own in a fire-safe place. While it is burning, be sure to stay aware of any signs, symbols, or messages that come through. These can be from loved ones, strangers, dreams, signs on the street - anywhere. Spend a few minutes with your candle each day, visualizing and experiencing your transformation and expansion.
Happy Full Moon, my loves! Let me know how it goes. XoxoMLH
