No person, no place, or thing has power over us. We are the only thinkers in our mind. Only when we create peace, harmony and balance in our minds, can we find it in our lives.
The Full Moon in Libra on Friday illuminates tension within our relationships with others. We each crave to feel safe and secure and look for strength and reinforcement in and through each other. This drive for harmony, peace, and sharing within our relationships becomes the most powerful feeling at this time. This intense energy is cultivating the issues faced at this time so it can all come to a conclusion. When the moon is full she casts her glow upon the shadows and what is usually hidden from view can now be clearly seen. She can illuminate the hidden secrets, hidden truths about our relationships with others as well as ourselves. She also illuminates what needs to be let go of. This is a powerful Moon to help you balance the scales within your own life.
Sometimes we stay in relationships that just don’t work. We may fear that not having someone to share our lives with would leave us feeling incomplete. At the end of the day maintaining unhealthy relationships with ourselves and others when they aren't serving us can drain our life force. The ruling planet of Libra is Venus, the goddess of love and she offers the gift of fairness at this time. Don’t be afraid to do away with things that are no longer serving you, don’t be afraid to let go of emotions that are throwing you off balance, don’t be afraid to forgive yourself, and release yourself from any burdens or guilts you may be carrying. Letting go of fearful notions about our relationships as well as connections that have served their purpose, can empower us to create space for new relationships and bonds to arrive that enhance our spiritual growth.
Using a blessing and releasing ritual can aid you to release the emotional aches and pains from your energetic field making space for more positive and loving connections to manifest. In preparing to bless and release; whether it be an unhealthy relationship or something else, it’s important to remember that the ending of any phase, partnership or relationship cannot be blamed on one side solely. When both sides take full responsibility for everything thats happened, then there can be no victims. Peaceful coexistence is then made possible by both acknowledging the purpose the relationship has served and your experiences from it.
Full Moon Ritual for Release
The Libra full moon can really add power to your ritual for release. You can tailor it to suit you personally and it can be used to release anything that you feel no longer serves its true purpose. Conducting a release ritual creates the stirrings of something very special happening, the moons energy provides magical intention to our wishes. It gets the power of the universe behind us when creating your deepest desires and gives you that little extra push in the right direction of the cosmos!
You will need:
2 bowls, one suitable to hold water, one suitable to burn paper in
A paper and pen
Step 1. Clear Your Energy.
Imagine standing under a silver waterfall and allow all negative energies to be washed away. Smudging at this point is recommended, or even bathing.
Step 2. Create Your Sacred Space.
Find a quiet place to sit, declutter and organise, you might like to place crystals, cards or other special totems around you, or cleanse the room with some Jasmine incense.
Step 3. Set Your Space.
Light a candle – I use two little tea lights for this ritual,
Fill a small bowl with moon water, and have another bowl suitable to safely burn a piece of paper in.
Place both the bowls in front of you.
Step 4. Centre Yourself.
Take a few deep breaths, centre yourself. Clear your body and mind so you can let go and open to new possibilities. Invoke unconditional love and visualise encasing any other person with love and light energy. Acknowledge the love you hold for yourself, and/or the other person, and the spiritual connection that was shared. Honour that this particular relationship has served its course while releasing the physical bonds of the relationship.
Step 5. Release.
Write on the piece of paper exactly what you wish to release from your life. Consider which limiting beliefs you want to be free yourself from, what no longer serves you?
When you have finished your list, sign and date the page.
Close your eyes and imagine the seeing the cord which you wish to free yourself from. With love and pure intention, cut this cord. Hear the scissors snip sharply within your mind. Open your eyes, breath deeply into your heart chakra space and say “I now let this go. And it is so.”
Step 6. Let Go.
Place a corner of the piece of paper over the candle allowing the flame to light your page – place the page into the empty bowl as it burns, watch the flames consume what you are releasing, the smoke is carrying your intention out into the Universe.
*if your piece of paper struggles to light or burn, consider if you are really ready to let this go. Only when you are have the will to let go will the paper burn. Notice how fast the flames burn, if they are quick it suggests you are all the more willing to let it go.
Step 7. Cleanse.
Then place your hands in the bowl of water. Feel the coolness wash over your finger tips, signifying the cleansing of the old and clearing for the new.
Remove your hands from the water and take a deep breath.
Step 8. Afterthoughts.
Afterward sit in silence for a short time and see if any inspiration comes along. You may even want to journal around your thoughts.
Let your candle burn itself out. (This is why I use small ones, or tea lights!)
Treat yourself and the other person with utmost care and kindness as you work to dissolve any relationship so that the experience of it will serve you in a beneficial way as you initiate new relationships in your life. Blessing and releasing unhealthy relationships unleashes a flow of love energy through the heart. This is energy will attract in and manifest soul-hearted relationships in the future.
