Full Moon Cleansing
The evening before the full moon is perfect for recharging. Sit outside and bathe in the light of the moon. Place your crystals, oracle cards etc out in the moon or on a windowsill to charge up with the moon’s powerful cleansing energy.
Full Moon Releasing Ceremony
Full moons are perfect for releasing ceremonies. Write down a list of anything you wish to release from your life (or say it mentally). You can ceremoniously burn or bury your list. Put your list in a pot that will burn safely, call in the archangels or your spirit team, and proclaim out loud or silently what you wish to release. For example: “I release my need to control situations,” “I release my vow of addiction to coffee,” or “I release my sense of lack of money.”
Manifesting your Wishes with the New Moon
The new moon is the perfect time for manifesting what you wish to have in your life, whether it be material objects or qualities such as love, compassion and freedom. It is also a ripe time to introduce new beginnings and projects, basically any desires you wish to come into fruition.
You can meditate on your desires, write down a list of positive affirmations, or speak to the moon directly.
New Moon Wishing Ritual
Write down your list of desires and intentions for the next month. You can get into the creative process and use coloured pencils etc if you wish. The idea is that the more energy you put into it, the better the results. The process also creates a sense of magic and ritual. Really get into the feeling of your manifestations as if they are happening right now and use the present tense. This is the key to manifestation.
As with the full moon ceremony, read the list out loud and bury or burn it, or place it somewhere so that you can look back at it during the following month’s new moon, then if there is something that has actualized into reality a month later, show gratitude by thanking the Universe. You can then revise the list and make any alterations which match where your intentions are now.
