The allure of the Full Moon has always been intertwined with magic. As the Moon Mother reaches her zenith, she bathes the world in a silvery glow.
For many, the Full Moon isn’t just a beautiful spectacle in the night sky; it’s a beacon of potent energies, ripe for harnessing.
Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or a novice, the magnetic pull of the moon likely resonates with you. It’s no wonder that tales of moonlit dances and enchanting rituals permeate folklore.
If you’ve ever felt the desire to connect more deeply with this lunar phase, you’re in the right place. Here are some simple ways you can weave magic during the Full Moon.
Magic For The Full Moon
Manifestation Rituals: The Full Moon’s energy is potent for bringing intentions to fruition. Write down your desires. Meditate on them. Then release the paper into a fire or water to help manifest those intentions into reality.
Moon Water Creation: Water in a bowl or jar under the Full Moon’s glow imbues it with lunar energy. This “moon water” can be used for various purposes in magic, like cleansing, protection, and amplification of other rituals.
Release and Letting Go Rituals: The Full Moon is a time of transformation and release. Engage in rituals that allow you to let go of past traumas, negative emotions, or habits that no longer serve you. This can be as simple as writing down what you want to release and then safely burning the paper.
Are We Lunatics?
Just some food for thought. While we are on the topic of Full Moon magic and such…
The term “lunatic,” rooted in the Latin “luna” for moon, embodies ancient beliefs surrounding the Moon’s power to stir emotions and influence behaviour. During the epochs of ancient Rome, prominent thinkers such as Pliny the Elder were vocal about their beliefs that the Full Moon had a direct impact on mental states, causing even the most balanced individuals to display erratic behaviours.
This association between the Moon and madness intensified in the medieval period. Legends abounded of Werewolves, believed to transform during the Full Moon, and witches who drew heightened power during this phase (not wrong). Such tales fuelled the notion that the Full Moon had the ability to pull at the strings of sanity, causing individuals to act out of character or even become deranged.
It also wasn’t uncommon for courts in certain medieval societies to look at the Moon Phase when assessing an individual’s behaviour, especially if it was out of character. To be “moon-touched” or “moonstruck” were phrases coined in these eras. This gave credence to the belief that the Full Moon had the power to pull individuals from their usual selves, unleashing a more chaotic side.
The Full Moon radiates potent magic, casting a luminous glow over countless rituals and practices. Its energy inspires spells, divination, and healing rites. But keep in mind, magic doesn’t always require intricate rituals.
Sometimes, the simple act of gazing at the moon, basking in its silvery light, becomes a transformative experience in itself. This celestial body, ever-present in our skies, reminds us of the cyclical nature of life and the potent energies that surround us. So go forth, and harness the energy of the Moon Mother.
