PLEASE NOTE, WHILE IT IS GREAT TO DO THIS WITH THE FULL MOON, YOU CAN REALLY DO JUST THE MEDITATION OR THE ENTIRE EXERCISE ANYTIME...
There sky is so intense right now, I’ve been finding it difficult to even process what is happening and really understanding what this Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon in Leo was all about. For myself, I realized I needed to break it down into smaller parts, as a lot of the reports I was reading were feeling overwhelming. I almost wasn’t going to put out a ritual, as I felt overwhelmed by it all. So I tried to simplify it all, and find what resonated with me. I am not an astrologer, and so it is my take on what I understand and what I am feeling.
What technically is a Supermoon, Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse and what are the effects?
“Lunar eclipses can occur only during a full moon, and this one is extra special because it's also a supermoon. A supermoon occurs when the moon is full and closest to Earth in orbit. The moon will be in perfect alignment with the sun and Earth, with the moon on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun.
Earth will cast two shadows on the moon during the eclipse. The penumbra is the partial outer shadow, and the umbra is the full, dark shadow.
When the full moon moves into Earth's shadow, it will darken, but it won't disappear. Sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere will light the moon in a dramatic fashion, turning it red.” Taken from this article at CNN
Why does it matter that Moon is in Leo, and the Sun is entering Aquarius?
Leo, is a sign often associated with creativity, courage, and passion. It is also a sign that wants to fit in and often thinks of themselves and looses sight of the larger collective. Aquarius is a sign associated with being progressive, original, independent and inventive. Very connected to bigger picture and the outside world, wanting everyone to rise.
How are we effected by this Full Moon being so connected to Uranus?
Uranus is the planet of change and transformation. It can be quick and unexpected changes and opportunities.
Ok, so what does all of this mean?
As I have writen before the Full Moon, ( This one being even more intense due to all of the above), brings light on the things we sometimes don’t see, often the things we are trying to keep hidden. Many refer to this as our shadow. While this can be incredibly emotional, it is also a time of great release. When we don’t pay attention to our shadow and don’t become friends with it, it actually becomes more powerful in blocking us from the things we truly want. The Full Moon is a beautiful time to get quiet, to get honest with yourself…Allow the light to show you the things you have been trying to hide from. From there, you can learn to integrate them and therefore loosen their powerful hold over you.
It is a time to look at what we are doing for ourselves? What are we doing for others? What are our dreams? How are we showing up for ourelves? How are we showing up for others? And as the light shines, what are your beliefs that are holding you back? Where are you not taking action to go after what you want for yourself? Where are you focusing on yourself too much and not thinking of others? How can you show up better for yourself and others?
I made the following Meditation + Journaling prompts to help you take advantage of all the energies in the sky. Go some place quiet and private. Maybe light a candle, incense and dim the lights. Have a journal and a pen near by.
When you are finished, pull out your journal and acknowledge the things that came up for you. You might want to reread the questions above. Writing out what you are ready to release, each thing that came up. Take your time, feeling and releasing what you are tired of carrying around with you. Get honest. Allow the energy of Uranus to change things up. Release whatever it is that is holding you back.
Now it is time to clear your crystals, which you can do with Palo Santo, Sage, Sound, dirt, water etc...If you use anything with smoke, you can swirl the smoke around each crystal as you say aloud what it is that you are ready to release. If you are using any of the other clearing tools, you can do the same thing. To get more information check out THIS VIDEO where we talk about crystals, moons and clearing....When you are finished put your crystals either outside or near a window for 24 hours...
