"Balance is not something you find, it's something you Create"
A Super Moon is arriving on the 21st March 2019 in the air sign of Libra. In Aries season (all about the self) tensions may appear between what we expect from ourselves as well as our expectations of others. This intense Full moon is all about balancing the relationship we have with ourselves as well as others. The fact that this Full Moon also falls around the same time as the Equinox enhances this energy, bringing new beginnings and fresh starts. Libra - ruled by Venus - strives for balance and harmony within relationships and Libra is associated with the beauty, aesthetics, refinement and romance. Where we are discovering our needs for dependancy in these areas, we are being asked to change the weight of these needs to balance the scales. Where there is no thanks or appreciation coming or going, then you must work towards balancing these polarities. There must be change in these areas to balance your emotional needs and dynamics.
Think about the things in these areas of your life that you want to let go of. This is the perfect time. The air element is masculine, the realm of ideas and magic between the physical and non physical worlds. Air signs tend to dream their world into being with future orientated ideas of what to manifest or let go of, and we can all benefit from this energy during Libran Full Moon.
Mantra "I see Beauty in Myself as well as Others"
The Great wheel is about to turn one more to Ostara. During this moon phase we are all encouraged to spend time out within nature. Spring time brings the return of the light and you are encouraged to let that light in to your home, purchase a plant or flowers, smudge away the old season, change your bedsheets, or indulge in the act of self care of having a facial or massage. The thing about the change of season is it invites us to make our environment more welcoming, We can literally feel the air of change and subconsciously we begin to beautify our personal space. Other ways to welcome the balancing of your life is through ritual, and rituals can be personalised to your own taste,
Below are three Ritual ideas for inviting more balance and peace in to your life during this Super Moon.
Clear Your Energy with Sage: Smudging Ritual
If you choose to do any ritual, smudging is wonderful to perform before and after, not only for us but its scientifically proven to clear negative energy from its environment. It can be done independently and at any time. Of course for this, you will need to have a sage wand or bundle handy, which can be bought from most spiritual/new age shops as well as online. Smudging is a powerful energy clearing ritual used in Native and earth-based traditions during ceremonies. It is said to help release negative, toxic, stagnant energies, and even get rid of earth-bound spirits and attachments. This Libra full moon is an especially potent time for a smudging ritual, as after facing and releasing what need to, you can ceremoniously clear it away with the smoke of sacred sage.
To perform this ritual, simply burn the dried sage bundle, keeping a ceramic/fire-safe dish underneath to catch the ashes, and simply waft it around your entire body (at about a two-feet long distance). As you do so, you can again set an intention such as, “I release all that no longer serves me for my highest good.” After smudging yourself, you can smudge your home by waving the wand in the corners and centres of each room of your home—or anywhere you feel guided. Trust your intuition, as you may feel the need to smudge some unexpected places or linger somewhere a little longer. Be sure to perform this very safely, keeping distant from fabrics, pets, children and always a dish underneath. You just need to wave the wand once or twice in each area to get the smoke flowing there as you keep moving along. Keep an eye out for any fallen ashes and put them out immediately.After the ritual, open all your windows to air out the smoke and let new, fresh energy, and ideally moonlight, into your home.
Charge Your Spiritual Tools: Magical Infusion Ritual
The light of the full moon amplifies everything with lunar magic, so it’s a potent time to infuse this energy into our spiritual tools, like crystals, essential oils and incense, etc.I recommend clearing them with sage as mentioned above first, so that they are pure and clear before absorbing the energy of the moon. To “charge” them, set your intention with each object and place it somewhere it can get the maximum amount of moonlight throughout the night. For example, if you are using a crystal for a specific purpose, you can state your intention for that crystal and then add, “I welcome the light and magic of this full moon to bless and empower this crystal, and open me to all its gifts for my highest good.”
Be sure to take all your objects back in the morning, as some crystals and spiritual tools can react to and alter with sunlight. (Quartz can be dangerous in the sunlight - Years ago a friend of mine from my Crystal Healing class told me left a Quartz Sphere on her windowsill and the sun heated it up which burnt a hole in her woodwork! Please be careful!) As you place each object back in your space, thank each one, along with the moon, for their potent new energy, and notice the shift as you work with them.
Soak Up the Moonlight: Moon Bathing Ritual
This step may be a little risky, but since the full moon can bring out the primal animal in each of us, I have to include it, but please don't get yourself arrested! If you can do this safely and privately, it’s a beautiful idea to moon bathe naked or with minimal clothing. You don’t have to go outdoors. If you can see the moon from your bedroom, it’s actually advisable to do this there with a locked door! Simply lie down and let the rays of the moon infuse you with their healing energy. Especially if you have done the clearing rituals above, think of this as a way to replenish, because whenever we release, we create space, and when we create space, we want to fill it consciously. What better way to replace the darkness that you released than by filling up with magical moonlight? As the light shines on and over you, imagine your mind, body, heart, and energy field soak up all luminescent silvery rays.
While sunlight energises and uplifts us, moonlight awakens our intuitive, receptive, softer, spiritual side. Absorbing full moonlight is especially healing for us women as it nourishes our sacral chakras—our wombs and menstrual—or moon—cycles. (We often menstruate and ovulate according to the moons rhythm). Usually about 20 minutes realistic and will work wonders. Playing crystal singing bowl music release negative energy from your being and physical elements and will invoke the healing blessings of all physical and heavenly bodies while moon bathing. These videos are easily found on YouTube. It’s also a sacred bonding experience to do this with a trusted partner or sister. So find a safe and private spot, peel away those inhibitions and let Mother Moon shower you with moon love.
