In honor of our new Lunar Readings series with our spiritual expert Rory Lula McMahan, Rory and I have teamed up to offer DIY rituals for you to do around the full moon to activate the intention of the new moon’s energy reading. Each lunar cycle, I will create a DIY activity that our readers can do to illuminate the offerings of Rory’s Lunar Readings.
For our first DIY activity, we are making Full Moon Crystal Spritz. It is ideal to charge your crystals on the full moon (unless it is eclipse season), but you can also charge them in the 2-3 day shadow of the full moon.
Since this Lunar Reading focuses on letting go of what no longer serves us so that we can move forward to manifest happiness, I have incorporated these two energies into the spritz. For letting go, Frankincense oil assist in releasing old limitations and stories that no longer serve our future. Amethyst and Lavender are great for calming anxiety as we step into our new life stories and reach for our dreams.
Rose Quartz and Lavender offer calming and heart healing support. Amethyst is also a great stone for increasing your trust of your own intuition, which helps us align to walk our highest path.
Frankincense comes from the resin of three distinct types of Boswellia trees, and is our grounding earth energy for this spritz. Rose quartz activates the heart chakra. Both amethyst and lavender open up the crown chakra so that you can walk your highest path.
This Full Moon in Libra is a pink full moon. According to The Farmer’s Almanac, April’s full moon is always named the pink moon because of the moss-pink flowers that appear during early spring. Libra is the sign of balance which makes it a great moon for releasing what no longer serves us and calling in our future path as Rory so eloquently states in our lunar reading.
How to make our full moon spritz for the Pink Moon in Libra
What you will need:
- Spritz bottle
- Ceramic bowl
- Purified water
- Rose quartz
- Lavender essential oil
- Frankincense essential oil
Place your purified water in a ceramic bowl. Place your crystal inside the bowl. Bless the water of the bowl with your affirmation. This can be anything you want to call into your life. We also welcome you to use Rory’s affirmation for the month if you feel so charmed:
I gently release my past and in trust turn towards my future.
Place your bowl outside under the moonlight or in a window.
The following morning, add 13 drops of each essential oil into the bowl. Remove the crystals and pour the water into the spritz bowl. Feel free to write your affirmation on your spritz bottle and date Full Moon in Libra April 19, 2019.
