Many people would love to be more spiritual/in touch with their earthly elements, but don’t know where to start. That’s okay!! It’s important to mention that EVERYONE has the power of harnessing the magic inside of them. There are many ways to do so while regarding the earth around us. One of those, is by keeping track of our lunar cycles.
The Moon is the closest astronomical body to the Earth. It orbits us synchronously; creating tidal forces, embodying the cycles of the earth, and showering us with energy. Tonight on 2/9/2020 at 2:34am EST, we will have our second full moon of the year! Full moons occur when sun (yang) & moon (yin) are in opposite positions; marking the middle of the lunar cycle. This particular moon is the first of four supermoons that will occur in 2020. Supermoons occur when the moon is at its nearest contact to Earth; making it seem bigger and brighter than normal. We should expect a lot of energy from this one! 😜
The moon radiates frequencies that embody our internal psyche—such as our fears, hidden desires, emotions, etc. It allows us to express ourselves creatively and learn from our experiences. During Full Moons, there is a HUGE amplification of potential. For us, this could either mean tension/anxiety or possibility/creative self expression. Many cultures believe that honoring the moon at different phases can cause change/transformation (emotional & physical).
There are ENDLESS ways to honor a Full Moon! If you already have witchcraft tools, this is a great time to charge them (crystals, divination tools, etc). If you’d like to make your craft spiritual, you can also perform a divination or consecrate your tools. All witches (foundling or sorceress) can meditate, enchant spells, and plant dreams/set intentions. My personal favorite Full Moon ritual is making moon water. You bathe water in a clear jar with your desires by the moonlight for as long as possible before the sun comes up. Ta-da! You now have moon water!!
Anyone wishing to harness their inner magic has the capacity to do so. Full Moon rituals are just one method! The most important component is to have intent. You can pair your desires along with a ritual that is meaningful to you and... BOOM! You’ve just consciously meditated. I hope this article was beneficial for you, and I wish you the best on your magical journey.
