Today’s full moon on October 24, 2018 is called Hunter’s Moon and it sits with Taurus. The Taurus sign is one of the most grounded and stable and so it is the perfect time to build up your strength. The moon’s energy has been used since ancient times, where people would set intentions for what they needed and/or release what they no longer felt was good for them. Even though times have changed, the strong energy that we receive from the moon has not, and there is enough available for us all of us to use.
Some of you may feel a little less in control when the full moon arrives, and this is your calling to use it for what is intended. A positive opportunity is there for the taking, so go on, take a big deep breath and go for it. With the moon’s energy as powerful as it is, it’s important to direct it with your clear intentions.
If you already have an existing relationship with the moon then you will know exactly what we are talking about, but if you don’t, there’s no need to worry, we are here to help you with a simple yet fulfilling full moon ritual that will serve you for all that you need.
Close your eyes, take a deep inhale, hold it for five seconds, then release. Stay with this exercise until you feel calm and present.
Light a candle and some incense. This will enhance your connection but don’t worry if you don’t have any incense, you can use sage, essential oils or a scented candle. When doing a ritual, it is nice to have a delicious scent around you.
Still breathing, think about what it is you want or need, as well as what you want to release and let go. Write everything down on a piece of paper and take as long as you need when doing so. This is your time.
When finished, close your eyes, sit in quiet, continuing to breathe and visualize everything you have written down. Stay with this for as long as you feel necessary. There is nothing to rush, this is your sacred space.
Once you feel ready too, take another deep breath and upon releasing it, blow out all the negativity you feel. Again, do this as many times as you need.
Now sit and embrace everything you want. Enjoy the quiet and the peace around you.
When you are ready, seal the ritual with thanks.
And there you go!
