This full moon takes place on Friday the 13th and is ruled by Jupiter the planet of expansion and abundance. It is also a very dreamy full moon. With Virgo season we are doing a lot of work to move our dreams forward. With Virgo opposing Neptune it is a great full moon for being dreamy as well. While action helps us makes our dreams come to fruition, it is also important to line up psychically with what we want to manifest in our lives.
For this full moon DIY, we are going to use Virgo energy to clear something out of our life that is holding us back, and use Jupiter energy to fill that space up with more of what we are becoming. This ritual can take as little as 20 minutes or as long as you are called to be in this space. First we will set up an altar, then we journal, burn and release through dance. I mean, it is Friday the 13th, so let’s get a little ritualistic, shall we?!?
For Your Altar
- Any sort of candle
- Jupiter stones: amethyst, sapphire, emerald, topaz
- Anything that reminds you of the ocean: viles of water, shells from the ocean
- Any sort of fresh flower or foliage that makes you think of this current season. Wild flowers, oak branch, sunflowers
- Sage or Palo Santo to clear the space
For Journal and Burn:
- You will need a bucket or container, matches and a page from a journal.
- Yourself and your favorite jams
First set up your altar. All you really need is a clean space and a candle. Everything else is extra and there is no way to get this wrong so put whatever makes you feel abundant and expansive on the altar and anything that reminds you of the ocean. Next for the journal prompt. I want you to write down something about yourself that you are willing to let go of and leave behind. This Virgo season is all about shedding what no longer serves you. What version of yourself do you no longer want to take with you into the future. What story or limiting belief is holding you back? WRITE IT DOWN.
Now with fire, we will burn that sentence or paragraph and release it from ourselves. AKA, LET THAT SHIT GO! I like to burn mine in a metal bucket with a match. You can also burn it with a candle over a larger plate. A little flame goes a long way. Now that we have released our old story, write down an emotion that you will have more space in your life for now. Example: If you are releasing shame around your body, then the emotion could be confidence, freedom or celebration. Write this emotion down and place it on your altar. Now to seal in this ritual, dance this new emotion into your heart. Pick a song that embodies the emotion you are calling in. Example: If you are calling in confidence then you may listen to Lizzo or Beyonce. Dance for 5 minutes or for 5 hours. Just remember to give yourself permission to take up space! This full moon is begging you to do just that!
Keep your emotion word on your altar or in a place where you can see it in your home. When you see it, check in to see if you are feeling that emotion or if you can do something to get yourself into the emotional space.
