Hello and blessings!
Today marks the first full moon of the new year! Happy times! And especially magical times. The moom is in Cancer, which strongly pulls at our greatest heart’s desires. Anything that concerns matters of the heart, relationships, friendships, personal healings, should be done on this full moon night.
I only saw this night for blessings and honor for others. I set outside my circle, and all that I needed for the ritual. It was so fortunate that the rain passed through without reaching my neighborhood. I was praying for that. From this, the sky was clear, with only the moon shining bright over me.
I casted the circle, and summoned the four guardians of the watchtowers. Then I called upon Diana, the Great Moon. Which was revitalizing and empowering! I created a simple full moon incense to burn during ritual. The incense consisted of two resins that many will already know of, for it is popular.
I also had decided to charge some moon tea. Since the moon is in a water element, I found it fitting. The tea was:
- Green tea
- And a pinch of Mugwort
During ritual, I swirled the bottle clockwise, three times, and shine the full moon light through the glass. Then chanted what I wished for it to magically be blessed with. And then left it under the moonlight all night until the raining morning. Jasmine is associated with the moon and horoscope sign of Cancer. Whereas Mugwort is related to the divinity of Diana of the Great Moon. The green tea ties them together by bringing balance and wisdom.
After all was said and done, and blessings were casted, I closed the circle. But not before taking a moment to pay honor to the Earth, and the spirits within. This was a wonderful, and fulfilling ritual. A perfect first moon to start for the rest of the year.
Many blessings to you all! And I hope your full moon rituals went beautifully!
