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.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Four of Cups

5e3efd5d005cd36c5d1395c41b65bdb1

When upright this card is about feeling unmotivated and discouraged. Life has become stagnant. The things that usually make you feel happy are no longer doing so for you. Whether you have a good or bad day, it doesn’t matter to you. You attitude remains the same. This card is telling to reflect on your attitude. The answer to your problem is typically right in front of you. You need to search within yourself to find passion again. This card is all about finding what really interests you and working towards them. 

When pulled in reverse this card is about wanting a new start. You may finally be experiencing the joys of life that previously you were immune to due to your disconnect from yourself. You are realizing that life is not perfect but there is still beauty in it to be enjoyed. Open yourself to new idea, people, and opportunities. You may find that one of these things bring the start of something amazing that many miss out on due to being too confined in their own beliefs.

Here is a tarot spread to help you rediscover your passion. First I would take the four of cups out of the deck and meditate on it while thinking about how it feels to feel passionate about something. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
