Do you have a full moon ritual? For me, it usually includes some variation of journaling, listening to music (closest my mind gets to ~meditating~), and pulling a card from either of the two decks shown below. Maybe both if I'm feeling fancy.
I know what you're probably thinking... full moon? witchy juju ra ra shishkoomba? No thanks! Listen, I get it. The idea of having a "ritual" sounds … out there, especially one that's centered around the full moon. But, the reality is we all have rituals, we might just not call it that. Do you get up, have a coffee, check your emails, then make your bed? That's your own ritual.
Anyways, I digress. The real reason I wanted to write this post was because full moons are meant for us to be introspective and to let go of what isn't serving us. This one specifically is in Aries, a fire sign, and reminds us to channel the energy of fire and connect with what motivates and inspires us. (I know this from the one million instagram accounts I follow on the subject).
My thoughts on full moons (and new moons, another post for another day) are that they are a good opportunity for us to pause, if only for 5 minutes. I am guilty of constantly feeling as if I have to be "go, go, go" and can benefit from taking a few minutes to re-center myself. Even if you hate the idea, try it out!!!
