How to Best Utilize the Full Moon

Yesterday we had a super full moon and we will still be feeling the effects of it for a couple of days so I thought I would talk about the different things to keep in mind when there is a full moon and the different things you can do during it.

What to keep in mind

It is very important to remember that during a full moon emotions are heightened. This can be great because if you’re feeling happy or some other positive emotion that will be amplified. However if you are experiencing more negative emotions they can be amplified as well. It is best to keep heated debates on the back burner and any other conversation that may spark conflict. Something else to remember is during the full moon we are more prone to overreacting and making rash decisions. So when you’re freaking out about something or about to make a decision during the full moon really think about it. Is what you’re freaking out about really that important or are you making it bigger than it is? And should you really be making such an important decision on one night? Is waiting until tomorrow an option? If so you should probably take it.

Things to do on a full moon

  1. Do an esbat ritual for the goddess of your choice
  2. Do a full moon tarot reading for yourself, a friend, or get one done for you
  3. Charge your crystals and cleanse them with the energy of the full moon
  4. Take a ritual bath
  5. Do some magick
  6. Clear your home of any negative or stagnant energy
  7. Connect yourself with the element of water as it is effected by the phases of the moon
  8. Work with your menstrual cycle (whether that is through ovulation, your period, or pregnancy)
  9. Dance
  10. Do a drum circle
  11. Sit under the moon and absorb the energy it offers you
  12. Do some reiki or get some reiki done to you
  13. Talk to the moon like she is very old friend
  14. Meditate
  15. Start a gratitude journal
  16. Focus on self love and spoil yourself a little.

I hope you all enjoyed last nights beautiful full moon! Let me know what you did with it’s energies in the comments down below along with any other thoughts or questions you have.

Citrine

Natural citrine does not hold on to negative energies but rather dissipates it. This makes citrine a great protective crystal. It is one of two crystals that doesn’t need to be cleared or cleansed. This stone promotes imagination and creativity.

This crystal is most known for bringing money your way and also maintaining said money. It attracts wealth, prosperity, and all things good. It is also a crystal that encourages you to be of goodwill and makes you more generous with sharing your wealth.

This crystal is also known for helping people in their professions. It helps interactions for those in sales and other similar financial careers. It is fortifying for those in healing careers and stimulates work in government fields. It also boosts creativity for those who are artists.

If you are having interpersonal relationship problems with family, friends, partners, you name it, then this is a great crystal for you. It helps smooth out conflict and promotes solutions.

If you carry this crystal around it will bring love and happiness to you. It will also shield you from those who would otherwise break your heart.

This crystal with its yellow hue is great for balancing the naval/solar plexus chakra as well.

Despite all these amazing traits of citrine it is not recommended for those with a temper because it can amplify that emotion and make one aggressive. It should also be avoided if you are one to slander or gossip.

Thank you for reading! Do you use citrine in your day to day life? What does it do for you? Let me know in the comments along with any other thoughts or questions you have.

Green Obsidian

Green obsidian is used a lot during reiki to help balance the heart chakra specifically but also the throat chakra too. This stone removes hooks and ties caused from other people. It is great for treating the gallbladder and the heart. Not only is it great for relaxation and stress but it helps ease insomnia, protects you from nightmares, promotes the ability to flow with change, it promotes confidence, and helps you with the idea that everything is alright.

This stone is great for people who want personal counselling but don’t seem to be getting anywhere as it will help them really tackle their problems and help them become more self reliant. It is also great at keeping people away that will only drag you down with their own personal crises. Keep this crystal on you if you work with people (especially troubled ones) to keep your energies light and positive.

Lastly, if you worship Gaia, like myself, and you want to have some sort of tribute to her on your altar or make a little gaia jar this is a great crystal to put in it!

So today we are doing a reading on our solar plexus chakras. The last 2 weeks we did the root chakra and the sacral chakra. All have been really great readings and I’m just as happy with this one!

Spread I used

My favourite part of all three of these chakra spreads is how uplifting the final pulled card is. All of the cards speak and beautiful results that I am so excited to experience.

Cards I pulled

Card to represent of solar plexus chakra: Three of Swords

My solar plexus chakra gets left out in the open, unguarded, unbalanced, ungrounded. This leaves it open to attack. The vulnerability of my solar plexus chakra has left me hurt physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s main damage being mentally.

How I can better use my logic: Eight of wands

I am going to have rapid action and quick decisions coming up. I will need to use my logic and creativity together to achieve the best results.

A way I can be more proactive: Nine of Cups Reversed

I need to think more carefully about what I really want from life. I also need to focus on my relationships with family, friends, and the community. Once I find my inner joy and build these relationships I will naturally become more proactive.

Good way to balance this chakra: Two of Cups

I need to find trust in my relationships with the divine and my partner. For my partner will fill my empty cup and the goddess will walk my path along with me.

Result of balancing this chakra: The Ace of Swords

When I balance this chakra I will have a breakthrough. I’ll find the truth and see the world from a whole new view. This will open up so many possibilities and opportunities for me.
