The new year has energetically started with a 'bang', with lots of emotional imbalances, changes to relationships and surprises along the way. The first Full Moon of 2020 is on Friday 10th January at 7.21pm (UK) in Cancer and is a strong time of completion and conclusion, to work through the darkness and thrive. It is definitely a period of new possibilities and personal growth, outside of the chaos that is occurring throughout the world. Look at deep seated negative thoughts that you have about yourself, your ability to get what you want and that are blocking you from achieving your ultimate goals. The energies this year are going to be amazing, full of scary lows but stunning highs, we just need to do the work to be our best selves.
Begin to write down all that annoys you, upsets you and unsettles you, ready for the ritual on Friday (within 48 hours either side) to ensure positivity and that your thoughts and actions are aligned with where you want to be. Question your thoughts, are they real? Is your perception correct? Burning the words is cathartic and healing and helps us to confront what has disrupted our balance, so we can work to prevent it happening again. We must remember to 'grieve' any unexpected metamorphosis, as we let go of our old selves and start this year reborn and reenergised, ready to shine.
This moon cycle is bringing big positive change for many of us and we will see our perceptions alter as we build a new identity full of happiness, love and laughter. As always, be gentle with yourself, change is a daily learning curve and an exciting journey of growth. Be conscious of the emotions that show up this week, do not over react, take time for YOU and feel the love that surrounds you.
Suggested Full Moon Releasing Ritual:
Sage, Frankincense, Incense, Palo Santo, Oils or a bundle of your choice
Sound chimes or a sound bowl; Candles + Lighter or matches; Pen & Paper
A selection of your favourite Crystals, pick those you feel most drawn to on the day and that represent where you want to get to and what you want to manifest
Light the candles & smudge your home, the area & yourself
Ground yourself by feeling the earth under your feet (even if you are not on the ground floor / outside).
Visualisation is key here, visibly shake of any tension from your body before you begin.
Write down all that needs releasing
The pages should be burnt then released into a river/ buried in the ground within 48 hours of the ceremony
Let go of old habits and thought patterns as you release the notes and envisage a sense of calm enveloping you. This can be in the form of a white light or a Teflon cloak of protection (using your minds eye) surrounding you
This process can be repeated during the 24 hours surrounding the full moon, if additional thoughts arise
Be sure to enjoy the process!
Moon magic is just that, an enchanting journey of exploration that allows us to tap into the frequency of the earth, into the unseen, before it becomes our physical reality. Have an amazing few days.
