Taurus Full Moon Ritual - October 2018
YOU WILL NEED
- A Full Moon Detox Bath - using salts and essential oils to cleanse & detox before your ritual helps you to get into a meditative state
- A Rainbow Obsidian & Labradorite crystal / or two of your favourite crystals
- Pen and paper/your moon journal
- A white candle ( as many as you like)
- Smudging tool of choice (eg. Sage, Palo Santo)
Cleanse yourself in the bath or shower, starting your ritual off this way helps clear away any unwanted or negative energies. Our Full Moon Ritual Detox Bath is a powerful preparation to detoxify and release what no longer serves you.
Smudge your aura. As always, before doing any ritual it is important to cleanse your energy and your sacred space to clear away any unwanted energies from the last lunar cycle. By doing this you help to create a protective and high vibrational space to do your energy work.As you smudge yourself, recite the following smudging prayer or mantra, or write your own, one that resonates with you -
“Into this smoke I release all that does not serve, all negativity that surrounds and all fears that limit”
As you smudge your surroundings, your alter, your home, recite the following -
“I cleanse this space with light and loving energy. Only positive energy may enter this space. I am protected and guided always through my spiritual work. I cleanse this space with light and loving energy. My home is cleansed and I am renewed. My home is cleansed and I am renewed, my home is cleansed and I am renewed.”
3. Cast your circle of protection. Decide which formation you will use for your ritual/spell work. Read Moon Spells to find out which formation works best for you.
4. Call to the guardians/directions, spirit guides, gods/goddesses, the universal life force energy, or any of the power of your understanding to protect your circle and enhance the magick.
5. Light your candles, take a few slow deep breaths, relax and calm the mind. Place your hands into prayer position in front of your heart centre or palms facing up towards the sky and recite -
"Mother Moon, Goddess of light, I wish to invoke your powerful healing energy tonight, as I/we gather on this sacred night, I/we hold this space in scared light.” And so it is.
Now you will begin your crystal meditation. I chose these two crystals as their properties will help you reach your desired outcome. The energies of the Rainbow Obsidian will help you to over come trauma, it reminds you that there's a rainbow waiting for you once you move through any darkness. Its energy is all about leaving the past behind and moving forward. Whether you're experiencing a loss or heartbreak, this stone can assist you in reflecting on and learning from the situation, so that you can turn it into a beautiful layer of growth and move to the future.
Starting with your Rainbow Obsidian, hold your crystal in your left hand, connect to it's energy, it's vibration, tune into its weight, its texture, start to notice how it feels, its colour and formation. Focus all your energy onto the crystal. Now programme your crystal to help you with what you want. If there is a specific time in your life that was particularly difficult and you feel you haven't quite gotten over it, ask the crystal to help you with that. This meditation can be very powerful, and very moving. It is working with your shadow side, your fears, your pain, your hurt. Once you meditate on what it is that you want to overcome, past feelings and trauma may arise so be prepared to face it all again. Don't be afraid, you must sit in this pain to truly over come it. This is where you will find your strength.
Spend as long as you need during these steps, this part of the ritual can not be rushed. Once you feel like you have connected to crystal and have programmed it to help with your healing, set it aside.
Next pick up your Labradorite, the crystal of new beginnings, transformation and vision projection - the best stone for fighting off an existential crisis and enhancement of spiritual awareness, taking your connection to the cosmos deeper. A stone to help find clarity in your future and project your dreams. Labradorite awakens you to this deep inner consciousness, a world where your creativity has infinite possibilities. Labradorite invites you to go down the rabbit hole, and the deeper you go the weirder it gets, but you will come out of the other side with a much clearer understanding of who you are and where you need to go.
Sit and hold your crystal in your left hand again, examining it. Find yourself lost in its iridescent magic, allow its natural beauty to mesmerise you, the Labradorite stone is a special crystal to keep close by because it reminds you of the natural beauty of the cosmos. Reminding you that all of our existence is connected, we are all one big expansion of the same consciousness.
Breathe into the energy of this crystal and feel your consciousness expanding, breathing in and out deeply through the nose, almost inhaling its magic with each inhalation. Ask the crystal to show you with clarity and understanding what you need to know. What is it that you need to do or see in order for you to move forward.
6. Sit in meditation and visualise Mother Moon pouring white light energy into your crown chakra and it flowing all the way into Mother Earth through your feet. Feel yourself both connecting to source and grounding into Gaia at the same time.
Gaze upon your candle, let your eyes soften, almost as if they are out of focus and with hands in prayer position repeat the following or feel free to say whatever comes to you in this moment -
“I call on my highest self for clarity and wisdom at this time, may I speak only my own truth and react only out of love and light. My pain wasn't mine to carry, but how I choose to react is what makes me strong and balanced. Help me find the strength to overcome anything. I call upon my guardian angels, my spirit guides and any other being that may offer their healing and I ask of you to help me stay in my place of calm. I know I am always being guided and protected and I thank you all for your blessings. I ask with love and light, I heal with love and light. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
7. Next, place the crystals either on you or next to you, pick up your pen and paper, take a few more deep breaths and ask yourself “What do I need most?” "Where do I need to grow? "What do I need to do better?" "What is it that I must do to become the best version of myself?"
Let your pen flow to paper, allow yourself to write whatever comes. If you want to meditate on these questions or your own questions for longer then please do so. Be aware of any emotions, visuals, feelings & thought processes that may arise when you are in this meditative state.
Give thanks to the gatekeeper for protecting you and your circle, your crystals for their guidance and Mother Moon for her magick, and most importantly to yourself for your healing, thank yourself for showing up for you everyday, even when you feel like giving up. Extinguish your candles... and so it is.
Blessed Be, and Happy Full Moon!
