Ceremony, Tools, and Astrology for June’s Full Moon
Happy full moon in Sagittarius, beloveds!
This full moon is a doozy. This whole week has been a doozy. Do you feel it? Cosmic confusion is at an all time high with Jupiter Neptune square, then paired with Mars opposing Saturn, then Mercury opposing Saturn — you may be frantically searching for truth or answers only to feel overwhelm or stress, and this full moon brings out everything we are meant to fully feel.
But man, am I glad for this Sag energy. I love it. I see the bow and arrow as a symbol of shooting for truth and meaning. Tonight is the perfect night to shed all that is not a “fuck yes” to you. Whatever does not feel like absolute truth to you. Freedom and sovereignty is a choice you have to make every. single. day. We are bombarded with images of what is beautiful and what is not, what is right and wrong, what you should or should not be doing, how you should feel and what you should never, ever feel… and with a Jupiter Neptune square, it can feel even more confusing than usual.
Tonight, think about your relationship with faith and truth. Where in your life are you questioning your faith? Where in your life are you refusing to acknowledge your truth? Tonight, we shed illusion and claim truth. This moon is going to bulldoze your coping mechanism and push you into the feels. Whatever isn’t your personal version of truth, let it burn. It’s a fire moon, so offer it all up. Ask for help in releasing you from anything holding you back from your own freedom. Write it out on a piece of paper and burn it. Tonight, celebrate your sovereignty. You are the sole ruler of your world.
Here are some tools for tonight:
Tarot Card: The Moon
Let the moon light up your path tonight. This card shows the part in your journey when you face the deepest emotions. It is a reminder to not fear — don’t use the moon a bandaid to your fear, but an opportunity to dissect and clear out what that fear is with confidence. You are being supported, and you are not alone.
By sitting with this card you’re saying ready to create a solid trust in yourself and to wholly merge with yourself in order to receive what you want/need. This is your tangible symbol to say to the divine “I’m ready.”
Bloodstone promotes self sufficiency, connection to the divine, healing, puts you in reality, gives you courage, strength, confidence, and personal power. This is perfect for this new moon as we step into our power and surrender, which is harder than fighting sometimes, and we don’t fall victim to the stars, life, or others.
Essential Oil: Lavender
Calm and nourish yourself tonight with some stress relieving lavender. Connect with the magic of this oil and anoint yourself with her. Soothe, baby, soothe.
Are you feeling like connecting to the divine is hard for you? Or maybe you’re feeling uneasy about relinquishing control in some area in your life. When there is negative thoughts or perspectives or things just aren’t working out and you really think you need them too — you can call on chamomile. Chamomile helps to be open to receiving divine guidance. It also helps protect you, infuse abundance in your day, calm your mind and body, and helps to illuminate your path. Chamomile is one powerful little flower.
This healing herb can be steeped in tea, held, burned, or whichever way feels good to you. You can harvest her yourself or get her from your local herb shop. Check with your doctor and use your intuition before ingesting any herb.
Song — Easy Easy by King Krule
“And if you’re going through hell, you just keep going”
…Easy, easy tonight my love. Play this song if you need some encouragement and move your bones to the music.
Color — Blue.
Soothe your soul and honor your emotions with the color blue. Let your paper, candles, outfit, or foods reflect this healing color.
Environment and Pose
Go by a warming fire if you can tonight, or be around candles. Sit, dance, circle, be. Be one with this fiery full moon.
Here’s my ritual for tonight:
Get sensual. Put on a beautiful scent, wear something that feels nice on your skin, put on your music, get in a comfortable position, make a nourishing cup of tea. Unwind. Breathe. Feel into it. You’re here, alive, present, and about to make some magic happen for yourself. Welcome.
It’s time to ground out. Have you been feeling a little spacey this week? How about a little irritable? Maybe even a little unsure of yourself, your direction, your purpose and a lack of faith? Anxiety can be a little high, as there is a lot of planetary energy that can cause some cosmic chaos in your mind, but now is the time to hone in on that fire in your heart. Plant your feet on the ground. Take a deep, and I mean deep, breath. This will help to consciously transform the confusion into creativity. This is not the time to turn to any sort of negative coping mechanism or substance — this is a time to be present. To be present means to be here, now, as your are and not worry about fixing or altering anything.
Take a moment to give voice to the things inside of you that are uncomfortable to fully feel. Maybe it is the voice that tells you that you’re never good enough, or that your body is weird, or it is this anger that sits in the center of your belly like a fire heating a cast iron cauldron. Or the voice that tells you to feel shame because of something you’ve done or haven’t done — whatever the voice is, or the feeling, or the sensation, feel it. Evoke it. Let her speak.
Most of the time, these are our inner children throwing a fit because that voice we are hearing now, is how we were spoken to when we were children. Now it is time to show up for yourself back then. It is time to hold that child in the way it needed to be held. If she’s angry, let her rage and hold the space for her without going down the rabbit hole with her. If he’s sad, listen to why. Give these parts of you a seat at the table tonight.
The only way to heal things is to fully feel them. Every thought, sensation, or emotion that comes up right now is coming up to be felt, integrated, and held. Only then can you genuinely move on as a whole, integrated human.
So much of the time, we focus on getting rid of these voices, to banish them from our bodies. But sometimes, we need to nourish them and show up for ourselves authentically in order to fully heal. Tonight is the night to try that.
If it gets overwhelming, put one hand on your heart, and one hand on your belly, or any part of your body that feels the most empowered and strong. Breathe into that place. Never forget your breath.
Connect with your higher force. Get really clear on who or what you answer to. Maybe it is love. Maybe it is God. Maybe it is the Goddess. Maybe it is Truth. Maybe it is a goddess or a god. Who or whatever it is, sit with that force after you feel everything you need to feel. Connect with them. Get clear on your connection. What does it feel like? Is it warm and comforting? Can you breathe this force into your bones, into your being?
Since this moon is in fiery Sagittarius, let’s get some fire going. If you can, light a candle. Write out on a small piece of paper all the thoughts, beliefs, loops, emotions and sensations that you wish to surrender and ask for help with. Give it up to that higher force. Let it help you.
Fold up that paper with incredible reverence, love, and care.
Get a fire safe container, like a little cast iron cauldron or a bowl, and light it on fire. And know that you are taking your first step to asking for guidance and help. Take some deep, cleansing breaths.
Make tonight beautiful, make it yours. This is your night. Full moons allow me to go deep inside myself and let my truth surface. Sometimes that comes up through emotions, through ideas, or through desires… listen to them all. Moon cycles are opportunities. Harness this power to do the work that you’d need to do anyway, but now you are held and supported and turning it into ritual and magic. I love using this energy to gain self-awareness, strength, aInd sheer determination and clarity.
I’ll be hosting a ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island — and as always, it’s free. If you can’t make it, feel free to share your experiences, truth, and perspectives by commenting below or shooting me an email and I may feature it in the next e-zine — email@example.com.
