Full Moon Magic 7/4/2020

I’ve always been a child of the moon. I feel it’s energy strongly, even my menstrual cycle is synced with the moon. My moods are altered by the moon. About a week leading up to a full moon, I want to crawl out of my skin. I feel anxious and unsettled, ungrounded and out of balance. During this time, I have to talk to myself a lot, give myself lots of extra self care and love. I believe in the power of crystals so I use different ones depending on how my energy is feeling.

When I’m anxious and don’t feel grounded I grab my Black Obsidian. This amazing stone comes from volcanic lava that has cooled and formed a type of black glass. It’s energy is slow, strong and deep. It helps to balance the Root Chakra, keeping us grounded and stable. This stone helps to pull my energy downward when it’s flying all around. Most of the time, I carry the stones in my pocket or my bra. I keep them close to me and I can feel the difference.

Another one of my favorite stones is Citrine. I like to carry the Obsidian and Citrine at the same time because one is for grounding and the other one is for my upper chakras. Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits.


Me, being a Libra, I am an Air Sign so remaining stable and balanced is something I have to be consciously aware of at all times or else I feel wacky.

Full moons are a great time for cleansing, releasing. The energy of the moon brings forth the truth for us to look at and make any necessary adjustments in our lives. Life is about movement, we should always be building, assessing and releasing…repeat. Everything is cyclical, what goes around, comes around, what goes up must come down. the more comfortable we are with change, the easier life will be.

During new moons, if there are things I need to let go of in my life, that pull is very strong for me. The more I resist and hold on to things or people that don’t serve my highest good, the harder this time will be. When I surrender to what my life is teaching me, things seem to be calmer and more settled for me.

One thing that helps me cleanse and detox is hot salt baths. Salt is very cleansing for the body and the energy field around us, that’s why the ocean is so powerful. It’s a great ritual I do especially during and around a full moon.
Another ritual I like to do is cleanse all of my crystals under the moon. I just put them all in a tray and literally sit them outside on the porch overnight. If you can’t do that, simply place them on a windowsill overnight.

Here are a few more rituals you can try, see which one works for you.

I’m also very patient with myself during this time. Knowing that I may be feeling a little less than myself, I give myself grace to get through this, reminding myself that this will be over soon. I’m learning that the more I stay in alignment with my life path, the less I will have to release during these moons. Then I can harness the energy and use it to manifest my life, rather than working through pain/issues, releasing the past.

Are you as in tune with the moon as I am? Studying Reiki, meditation and harnessing my own intuition has really made me much more sensitive to the elements and to other people. Now my practice is to listen to what my intuition is telling me and take action asap, not waiting and questioning what I know to be true.
