Make the Most of the Full Moon with One of These Magical Ideas
When the moon is full, magical energies are at a peak.
That’s why so many spells and rituals include “When the moon is full…” or “Under a full moon…” in their instructions.
The following magical activities are especially suited for the unique energetic dynamics at work during a full moon.
1. Call in More Money
The full flowering of the moon’s energy lends itself to magic for expanding and supercharging: this includes your wealth and finances. That’s why the full moon is a great time to perform a money spell, say affirmations for abundance, and/or position your home’s feng shui to maximize your prosperity.
2. Draw a Romance
The full moon is nothing if not romantic. Energetically, the moon is receptive and emotional. With its energy at full capacity during the full moon, it helps us open up to romance and call it into our life experience. Work magic to call in a new romance or to bless an existing romance. You could also create a love charm, say affirmations for healthy relationships, and/or make sure your home’s feng shui is attuned to the frequency of love.
3. Banish an Unwanted Condition
In addition to being at its peak of power, the full moon is the moment when the moon’s energy stops waxing and begins to wane. This makes it an appropriate time to banish conditions you no longer desire: for example, challenging relationship patterns, stubborn health issues, or anything else you’re ready to bid farewell. For a simple banishing ritual, write words or draw a symbol of that which you’d like to banish from your life experience on a small piece of paper. Roll the paper (away from you) to create a little scroll. Tie up the scroll tightly with twine. Put it in a jar and cover it with sea salt, filling almost the entire jar. Put a found feather on the top of the salt to symbolize the new lightness you will feel. Close the jar and feel the energy from the old condition is completely neutralized and removed from your life experience. Keep the jar for at least 3 full moon cycles. Then flush the salt down the toilet, burn the scroll, and release the feather to the wind.
4. Empower Your Crystals
The full moon’s crescendo of energy makes it an ideal time to empower your crystals and gems. You can do this in the light of the sun on the day of a full moon, the light of the full moon itself, or both. Simply spread your crystals out on a white cloth to absorb the light. This will both cleanse them and refresh their energetic potency.
5. Heal Your Relationship with Food and Your Body
The full moon is an excellent moment to let go of old baggage around food and body image. First, the full moon helps with this by supercharging your intention to heal. Second, as the pinnacle of the moon’s power, it is also the moment when that power begins to wane. Similarly, your disempowering stories around food and your body can wane right along with it, until they disappear completely. If you’re not sure where to start, check out these spells for healing your relationship with food. And, pick up a copy of The F*ck It Diet: Eating Should Be Easy by Caroline Dooner. I can’t recommend it enough.
6. Clear and Bless Your Home
Clearing and blessing your home during a full moon is a great idea. In addition to attuning your home to magical energies and assisting you in setting positive intentions throughout the space, it helps remove negative and unwanted patterns of energy throughout the home.
7. Read the Cards
Whether you prefer oracle cards or tarot cards, a card reading under the full moon is especially powerful. If you’ve never done a reading before, check out this post for advice on how to get started. You might also like this video about how to do your first tarot reading.
8. Work Some Career Magic
Whether you want to manifest a new job, open a business, or bless a career path you’ve already begun, the full moon is a great time to set it in motion. The expansive energies at work lend themselves to magic and manifestation efforts related to upward mobility and positive expansion. (Also success-oriented feng shui!)
9. Solve a Mystery
Last but not least, the full moon is a time when light is literally illuminating the darkness. Use this energy to shed light and clarity on issues that have formerly confused or confounded you. For example, you might work some magic or do some divination to find a lost object, learn the truth about a person’s intentions, or illuminate and activate your unique magical power.
Live your magic by aligning with the beautiful, radiant energy of the full moon.
