Full Moon Self Care Ritual - An Invitation into Acceptance and Divine Love
The next full moon falls on the 30th April at 02.58 CET in Scorpio. According to Forever Conscious' Intuitive Astrology report
"This April Full Moon is one of the most potent and magical of the year. The Scorpio Full Moon is always deeply transformative and is one of the best times for letting go and cleansing away things that no longer serve you.
Scorpio represents death, rebirth, and unconditional love. It also represents the stages of consciousness, or the peeling back of layers. At the core layer, Scorpio energy brings us the power of unconditional love, but on the surface layers, Scorpio can bring us ego and greed. Scorpio energy has the potential to move and shift to where it is needed, which is why having the Full Moon in this sign can be so powerful and also so personal."
Here is a short ritual to help you harness this transformative energy.
It is best to do this during or around the full moon but no more than 72 hours later as the moon energy is at it's most transformative during this period. Spend some time in the moonlight if you can, connecting to her energy and light before beginning the ritual.
You will need a pen and two sheets of paper, a candle, an insense stick or some sage.
Find a comfortable place where you won't be disturbed. Sit comfortably.
Take a moment to connect to your breath and the present moment. Breathe in to the count of 4 and out to the count of 6 for a few rounds with your eyes closed.
Take your paper and answer these questions -
- Am I feeling unconditional love for myself at this present moment?
- What needs to change in order for me to feel this Divine Love?
- Can I go deeper into this to facilitate further transformation?
Now take your second piece of paper and answer these questions -
- What is my true power?
- What is my essence?
- What am I allowing to emerge from me?
- Who am I?
- What do I need to surrender to and accept about myself?
Take time to allow the messages to come to you, don't force, let your heart speak. As you write perhaps bring to mind any objects that you would like to include on your altar to represent this release or healing that you wish to take place so that you can move forward into a space of unconditional love. Do not be afraid to look into areas that scare you. This energy will allow for transformation if you have the courage to go into your own darkness and truly accept your whole being.
Once you have finished spend some time reconnecting to your breath. Repeat the breathing exercise.
Take your papers and put them in a sacred space, you can create your altar with the objects that came to mind in the first exercise. Begin to place items in the East and move in a clockwise direction. When you place each item state clearly what you are releasing with it. Interact daily with your altar as you release and heal from all that does not serve you anymore. Be sure to remind yourself frequently how you are embodying the sovereignty that you harnessed during this full moon.
Blessings and love!
