Tonight we will experience a Full Moon in Pisces. The Dakota Sioux people call this the “moon when all things ripen”.
As the last sign on the zodiac wheel, Pisces is about endings and transitions. It’s time to surrender, symbolically wave the white flag, and accept the things we cannot change. As Pisces is also a dual sign, it means we will experience some of life’s paradoxs, like being a Spirit being in this very human and physical world.
When the full moon arrives, it’s time to create space to take stock of what has and has yet come to fruition. A full moon ritual is a time to get quiet, reflect, and celebrate. Unlike the new moon, the full moon represents fruitfulness and completeness and brings with it a lot of energy.
I’ll be celebrating tonight and you might want to as well. Here’s a Full Moon Ritual you can use to ground your heightened states, revel in your successes and strongly release that which is no longer serving you.
PISCES FULL MOON RITUAL
What you’ll need:
- Altar Space
- Pen & Paper
- Smudge: palo santo, sage, ceremonial tobacco
- Crystal or semi-precious stone (one you feel comfortable releasing)
- Water in a bowl, if inspired, throw in a few flowers
Cleanse yourself, your altar/space, and chosen crystal with sage, palo santo, or ceremonial tobacco along with lighting candles and incense. Have your paper and pen ready to write. If there is a prayer or chant that you would like to use, have it available to recite.
On a piece of paper, acknowledge all of the blessings that have manifested in your reality since the New Moon or even in the past month. Muse about the amazing opportunities, love, experiences, and people you are grateful for.
Next, take your crystal and while holding it, allow everything you are ready to release from your life currently (such as old negative beliefs, people, or experiences) to be absorbed into the crystal.
Once finished, take this crystal outside and giving the energy and thanks to Mama Gaia, bury the crystal in the ground and ask Gaia to take this energy you no longer need from your life. Ruled by Neptune, god of the seas, Pisces is the zodiac’s mermaid as it is ruled by Neptune, god of the seas. Wash your hands and feet in the bowl of water. Or even pour the water over your head and allow yourself to be completely cleansed.
Release any expectations and place your trust in your moon magic ritual that your invocations have been heard.
love & pranams,
