BLOOD MOON IN ARIES

October 2nd, 2020

Full moons are times for completions, fruition, celebration, going outward, fullness and harvesting. It’s also the time that you cash in on anything you started at the corresponding new moon six months earlier.  The time to say thank you and be grateful.

  • Full Moon Element Association: Fire

  • Chakra Work: Sacral

  • Suggested Ritual Theme: Ancestor honoring, shadow work, quick results, advance social situations, find new friends, add passion to your romance. Work on music or use your favorite music in ritual. It's a great time to drum. Rise to a challenge in a fair and honorable way.

  • Clean and smudge:

    • Take a broom and get the energy moving. In a counterclockwise motion, sweep from the top to the bottom of every wall, corner, nook and cranny. (You don’t have to make actual contact with the surfaces. Imagine all the trapped energies being swept out into the open. Take your broom and now sweep the floors, from the back of the house out to the front of the house until you sweep everything out of the front door. If you feel like you want to deep clean, use Spiritual Cleansing Big Al Bath & Floor Wash or Sage Bath & Floor Wash and wipe down and/or wash the floors of the house or space you are cleansing.

    • Now you can smudge. Make sure to open every closet, every drawer, and every cabinet in the entire house. Also be sure to pull back curtains and open blinds so that windowsills are accessible. Make sure you can easily move around the whole house without bumping into anything or having to stop to open drawers or doors.

    • To begin the smudging ceremony, light the sage, sweetgrass, cedar or palo santo. (Remember to keep a dish under the burning herbs to catch any ash.) If you are having problems keeping it lit, occasionally blow on it to keep the embers burning—you want to continue to coax the flame until you get a steady smoke.

    • It does not matter where you start smudging. If you are performing the ritual in your home, you can start at the front door and work your way around from there, or you can start from the backyard and work your way inside but always go in a counterclockwise direction. What is important is that you smudge every inch of the house. This includes closets, basements, every room, the basement, and the attic (if accessible). Start at the door frame of each room and then work your way inside the room and be sure to smudge every corner, window, and, of course, closet. Be sure to send smoke up to each corner of the ceiling and along the corners of the walls. After all four corners are “smudged” with smoke, go to the center of the room and make a clockwise circle of smudge. Complete all rooms. You may also want to blow smoke near the drawers and in the closets.

    • As you go through your home, workplace, or other residence, be sure to repeat a prayer, verse, or saying that you feel will empower you. The more empowered you feel, the more commanding your presence, and this will help in removing unwanted entities and energies. Speak to yourself, to God, to the universe, to Mother Earth, to a Deity or to the energy of life. You might ask for particular protection in certain rooms or for forgiveness and peace in other rooms. You might ask for those you love to be able to see themselves as they really are when you smudge mirrors; ask that you may see yourself as you are, too.

    • After you complete all rooms, open as many windows and exterior doors as is practical to let the smoke be purged for at least 20 to 45 minutes as this will help "blow away" all the negative energies that you just worked to break apart and disperse.

    • Now bring in the positive energy.  Use bells and/or a singing bowl to raise the vibrations of the cleansed space. In a clockwise motion, go around your house or space using sound to bring in the positive vibes.

  • Work on music or use your favorite music in ritual. This Aries energy calls for something high energy and powerful.

 

 

 

  • Light a candle

    • Use a Zodiac Candle to signify Aries energy. Hold the candle in your hands and lovingly envision an ancestor or someone you look up to that has passed; someone that taught you how to be strong. Embrace the feeling you get thinking of their drive, determination and confidence. Feel the gratitude you have for that person thanking him/her for all that they have taught you. Keep the vision of them in your mind’s eye. You can write a letter to them or just envision a conversation with them. Feel the gratitude go into the candle. If you wrote a letter, put the paper under the candle and light it. Say thank you and feel gratitude for this strong Aries energy and how it has molded your life.

    • For those that don’t want to commit to a seven-day candle burn, you can use a votive candle instead. This month’s Full Moon Box will be featuring the Spirit Votive Candle which has been charged through the art of Reiki to release energies and scents that will aid you in exploring the realm of your spirit for love, joy and growth.

 

 

  • Make Moon Water

    • Pour some water into a bowl or jar. I like to use mason jars because they have a lid, they're pretty and the light can get through the glass.Hold the jar close to you, whispering your gratitude into the water. Place your jar on a porch, a windowsill, or directly in the path of moonlight. (Definitely cover your water if you're putting it outside). Surround the jar with crystals, herbs and magical tools. Keep it there overnight. Many people pull the water inside before the sun comes up, but others do not. This is a personal choice.

    • You can use the water to:

      • cleanse yourself by adding it to a bath with some essential oils

      • cleanse your crystals (be careful submerging crystals in water; not all crystals can be cleansed in water)

      • dab Moon Water on your Third Eye Chakra to enhance psychic awareness.

      • anoint your money with Moon Water to invoke wealth

      • leave a bowl of it on your altar as an offering

 

 

  • Do divination.  Pick a divination tool and learn more about it…

    • Tarot Cards- either read about each card and their meanings or you can sit and meditate with each card and see what your divine connection shares with you

    • Runes- either read about each rune and their meanings or you can sit and meditate with each rune and see what your divine connection shares with you

    • Pendulum- use your pendulum to connect with your guides or ancestors.Be careful with who you are connecting with.Be sure to ask for protection and to only connect with higher beings.

    • Crystal Ball- use your crystal ball to connect with your guides or ancestors.Be careful with who you are connecting with.Be sure to ask for protection and to only connect with higher beings.

 

 

  • Journal - Pick a topic (ancestor honoring, shadow work, quick results, advance social situations, finding new friends, adding passion to your romance, rising to a challenge in a fair and honorable way) and write about how you feel you have brought more positivity and energy into your life within the past six months since the new moon was in the same zodiac energy.

 

 

 

  • Meditate with crystals

    • A few crystals that are great with Aries energy are Citrine, and Carnelian.

    • After you have chosen your crystal, you are ready for your meditation. There is no right or wrong way to meditate—just as there is no right or wrong crystal to use—everyone’s meditations are unique.

    • The best way to utilize your crystals during your meditation is to hold them in your hands while meditating or lay them on your body, ideally so that they touch your skin.

    • If you are new to meditating with crystals, here is a simple daily meditation with crystals to use to help you get started:

      • First and foremost, cleanse the crystal you plan to use.  Crystals can pick up other people's energy, so you want to be sure you are working with clean energy.

      • It's best to set an intention ahead of time so you can charge the crystal with that energy.  For example, you can charge a hematite stone with grounding and protective energy.  It already vibrates at that frequency but by charging it, you are creating a bond with the stone for your own personal use.

      • Find a quiet space where you feel comfortable and relaxed.

      • Sit quietly with the crystal that you wish to use.

      • Pick up the crystal and hold it comfortably in your hands.

      • Close your eyes and quiet your mind, focusing your attention on your breathing.

      • Start to focus your awareness on the crystal, feeling the energy and subtle vibration of your crystal.

      • Let the crystal’s energy fill your mind and body.  Picture it vibrating and clearing out all negativity in your energy field.

      • Visualize your intention and picture your crystal being programmed with the "job" you are giving it.

      • RELAX your mind and your body.  Sit with your crystals as long as you need.

      • When you are finished, and feel completely relaxed and at peace, ground yourself by seeing all aspects of your awareness spiraling back out of the crystal and into your body. Feel yourself connect with the Earth and your body.

      • Open your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

    • Now you may carry these stones with you and call on them when you need a boost of this grounding energy.

Most importantly, just connect!  With your ancestors, your guides and/or just yourself.  This is a time to put all of the earthly stresses and ego-based issues aside and focus on the vastness of our connections.  Be safe and have peace.
