Expect the unexpected!
Eclipse energy causes many things to be revealed to us. This is because they allow access into our “shadow self”. Things that have laid in the dark, in secret or hidden out of out sight. They could manifest as parts of our personality, perhaps things we try to hide from others, like depression or anger. They could also be revealed as relationships we’ve been trying to salvage because we have not wanted to see the truth about them, or the person.
Eclipses force us to see what we have been avoiding.
The energy of the full moon eclipse circulates within 4 days either side of the it, before and after. So you can expect plot twist, surprises and encounters, if you haven’t had some already!
The key during the full moon eclipse energy is to trust your intuition, and pay attention to the energy surrounding you. A major shift is taking place so stay away from drama if at all possible, and negative people. Its important to keep your vibrations high during this time. Should drama unfold within these days, its important that you pause and reflect on what it is trying to teach and reveal to you. Lessons are being taught during this energy in a way that you will not be able to deny the truth any longer.
The Full Moon is always a perfect time for releasing what no longer serves you; or letting go of something that you no longer need in your life. This is an opportunity to let go of any aspect of yourself that you have outgrown.
Here is a full moon ritual you can practice this week to help you stay calm, remove obstacles, understand what’s been revealed to you and bring forth positivity.
Its important before you begin any mediation or ritual that you sage/smudge your area before and after. Also keep within your reach items such as candles, stones, tarot cards, and your moon journal notebook.
During this full blood moon eclipse, I am suggesting the use of Red Candles for your ritual (you can use white if you do not have red) and the specific use of Red Jasper or Carnelian stones. If you don’t have these you can use selenite or any other stone you feel a connection with.
1.Find a quiet place in your home for you to sit. Sit in an upright position shoulders back and chin up allowing the flow of your breath to travel in an unobstructed manner, seemingly to allow your breath to flow up and down the spine.
2.Closing your eyes, allow your thoughts to wander. Reflect on the past week. Situations that arose, unfolded and moments where you felt joy or stress. Allow those memories to play in your mind. Give your self permission to reflect on why you felt those feelings, how could you have changed them, made it better or perhaps make happened again.
3.Take your note book in hand and begin to write down everything you wish to release or let go from your life. On a separate sheet write down what you wish to create, add, or improve on.
4. Then light your candle. Once your candle is lit, grab your stones and place them in your hand. You will then read out loud in prayer form what you have written. You will read both what you are surrendering and letting go of, and what you wish to bring forth.
5. You may then gently and carefully burn your release paper ( this is an option and not required, only do this is a safe space and if you feel compelled to do so) you may then place your positive intention wishes under or beside your candle, and you can place your stones along side them as well.
6. Make sure you close your intention and ritual circle with prayer of thanks to your angels, guides and spirits. Cleanse your energy again with sage, or smoke of choice.
