The Moon. Luna. Mwezi. Grandmother. We know her across the world under different names, but as her light shines down on us she makes each of us feel like we are her special one, the one she really wants to communicate with, the one who has something special to offer the world…and we do, each of us.
Creating rituals can be nourishing and turn you inward to your quieter spaces. I would like to offer you one such ritual that can be done each month if you like, a Full Moon Water Ritual that I love to do and find healing benefits from. It may help you connect with new parts of yourself, brighten your day or help quiet you so you can hear the sweet words your soul is sharing. Gathering the light of the Moon into water is a way to connect to your feminine power.
Creating Moon Water under the Full Moon is an ancient ritual for men and women and is best charged on the first night of the Full Moon. There are many ways to use the Moon Water once it is charged: I love the most ancient and sacred practice of drinking this moon magic! You may want to use it for blessings, for cleansing your chakras, making tea or for watering your plants ~ maybe they need a boost of moon water love! You will intuitively know what to do with yours once you hold the power of the charged water in your hands.
Here are the steps to creating your Moon Water Magic:
Every morning until the next full moon, take a sip of your Moon Water on an empty stomach. With each sip you will strengthen yourself with the properties of the full moon. Open yourself to her energy of creativity, wildness, imagination and brightness ~ she is there for you. Remember the blessings and intentions you placed in her and let this be a new way to start your day with gratitude and connection to the light within you.
Moon energy is something we all experience bi-monthly as her ocean tides rise and fall and the Earth tides (body tides) create a displacement of the Earth, which is caused by the gravity of the Moon and the Sun. We may not feel it in a active sense any more than we do the spinning of the earth as it rotates on its axis, but as we tune into it we can feel her pull. We women are in bodily ceremony with her every month as we follow her cycle of 28 days in our menses. We feel her rhythm as she wanes and waxes and she calls to us on a deep emotional and nurturing level. We carry the vibration of her feminine power.
For a little extra Moon Loving, try our Organic Lavender Gem Juice Hydrosol. Spray it on yourself with an intention on your mind and then in your bed before going to sleep.
The Full Moon in Taurus is a time for you to deeply reconnect with the Earth. The energy of Mama Moon combined with the sacred Root Chakra Ceremonial Bath would be a powerful way to go inward and ground yourself. It is also about manifesting ~ knowing what you want, possibilities, and creative power ~ so depending on what you need, the Sacral Chakra Ceremonial Bath would help you to honor your body by being present to your creativity, passions, and sensuality.
We all love the moon and some of us really love the moon, I mean really love her.
Let her light ignite your light.
Full Moon Blessings,
SPECIAL NOTE: This is the time of year when the days grow shorter days and we receive less light, the womb time. This is a beautiful ritual to prepare for the weeks of darkness ahead. This week we have a Full Moon in Taurus, an earth Moon, also known as the Harvest Moon or Sanguine Moon. When the moon is Full in Taurus it is a time for heightened senses and a time for enjoying earthly pleasures: a time for slowing down.
Colors that you may want to place on your alter under this Taurus Moon would be scarlet or earth tones of browns, greens, yellows and oranges. Gemstones to work with under this Full Moon are red coral, red agate, or garnet. And the fragrance for this Moon is Rose ~ for opening the heart. Now is the time to give up envy, financial insecurity, not feeling valuable and fear of change!
On the morning of November 14th at 5:53 am (PST)/8:53 am (EST), the moon will reach her fullness. It is best to place the Moon Water out on the eve of the Full Moon, however since she is full in the early morning hours, you will want to put your water out on the eve of November 13th, Sunday, to catch her at her fullest on Monday morning. It is good to have the water under her light when she is at her fullest or close to it.
