Halloween Blue Harvest Full Moon 2020 Ritual


 



Happy Halloween! What a magical day and with a Blue  Full Moon. Which means that this is the second full moon in a single month, and a Blood Moon and Harvest moon. It is Halloween and it is the time of year where many cultures believe that this time of year is when the veil between dimensions is thin.

This Blue Moon guides us to connect with our loved ones passed, and to surrender to the flow of our lives. 

If you have a loved one that has crossed over, say a special prayer, or do something to remind you of them. Eat their favorite food or light a candle in their name.

There has been so much loss this year, so honor those losses that matter most to you, even if they are a little painful.

What no longer serves you, what has “died”? What is awakening? Where have we been reborn? What is still lingering in-between these two states? 

Whether we are caught in the chaos of the cosmic energies or whether we are traveling to higher realms, this earth-energy will help us to stay rooted and connected to our being. 

This Blue Moon guides us to reflect on our own cycles of death and rebirth.

Look to nature for guidance



This Blue Moon reminds us to get grounded and rooted in our being, so we can reach into the realms unknown.

Honor the deaths you have faced, It is the law of the Universe that nothing is ever destroyed, only reborn.

Be gentle with yourself and look forward to the transition, it may take until next month, but this is the time to slow down, pay attention and allow the transition to happen and go with the flow. It may be rough before it gets better, but it will be worth it. Hang in there, be patient and remember to go with the flow. 

Here is a Magical Halloween Ritual

This ritual is best done on the night of the 31st in your local time zone, but it can also be done between October 29-November 4, 2020.

Feel free to adapt the ritual to your needs.

You will need:

  • Cleansing tool of choice. Palo Santo stick, moon water, sage stick
  • Cosmic Meditation of choice (Grounding Meditation Here)
  • Candle
  • Essential Oils (rosemary, and lavender work best)
  • Bowl
  • Sea salt
  • Pen and Paper



What to do...

1. Use your cleansing tool to clear your aura, your space, and your ritual ingredients. Recite the following- 

“I surround myself and this space in love and light. I am safe. I am loved. I am infinitely protected.  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

2. Take your pen and paper and write down a list of things you would like to leave behind. These can be emotions, events, or behaviors from your past, anything you want to let go of. Write as many as you can.  

3. Take your paper and rip it into tiny pieces. As you rip the paper, imagine releasing and letting go of all those things from your past that you no longer wish to hold onto.

4. Get your bowl and place all the ripped pieces paper in the bowl, spray or place a few drops of essential oil, Rosemary and Lavender.

As you drop the essential oils on the paper in the bowl, with each drop, let go of what you have in the bowl.  Get all your emotion out as you gently drop the oil on the paper.  Not too much oil, now sprinkle the salt over the bowl it will cleanse and purify.

5. Pick up the bowl and hold it with two hands and, recite the following- 

“I thank my past pain for the lessons I have learned, I release all that no longer serves me, that which has never served me and all that is not love. I am now grounded and present.”


6. Stand up hold the bowl over your head, throw the bowl of paper over your head and with the intention that all in the bowl is washing away. As you see the papers float and fall away to the ground. Stand up and shake out your body and then get in a comfortable position for your meditation of choice with the intention that “I am Aligned”. Light your candle and focus on I am aligned and enjoy your meditation.


8. After your meditation is complete, take a piece of paper and write the things that you would like to attract and bring into your life. You can write or have some fun and do a vision board.

9. Take your candle and paper with what you would like to attract and just affirm, "I am Aligned". Take a moment to say a prayer of gratitude towards yourself, the people around you, the planet, and your life overall. Speak from your heart. Place the paper on your bathroom mirror or somewhere you will see it everyday. Repeat to yourself "I am Aligned!" and read what is on that paper until the next Full Moon.

10. With your candle burning, do your Full Moon Reading or read below.   Pay attention to the message you receive and see if your own intuition can take the message further. 

11. Optional: if you would like to honor a loved one passed, you can put a photo of them near the candle along with some fresh flowers, maybe some incense, and their favorite food. Leave the candle burning for as long as it’s safe to do so.

Send the departed souls in your life lots of love and if you like, ask them to bring you a sign, a dream, a message, or see if you can make contact with them as you meditate in front of the candle.

Once the candle has been snuffed out, your ritual is complete.

Once your ritual is complete, pick up the paper and run underwater and place in recycling or whatever way is most convenient.

Blue Full Harvest Moon Reading

Your dreams need a practical plan

Full Moon in Taurus



Sometimes you need to weave a bit of magic and sometimes you need to be practical and sometimes you need to find a combination of the two This card suggests that this is where you are now. You need to use the laws of attraction to draw in what you want (by imagining it, expecting it, welcoming it) but you need to balance that with taking down to earth steps towards your goals. This isn’t about wishing on the moon and hoping for the best; its about making something like a list of bullet points about how you achieve your dreams. If you’re asking about money, this card heralds a change of financial fortunes depending on both your past actions and what you’re expecting and therefore attracting.

 

Write down 10 things you know are wonderful about you!

Additional meanings for this card

Laziness could explain your current situation. If so, change that and own it!

Chasing money does not work, you need to chase a dream

Jealousy or envy create negative energy and attract negativity

More Exercise is called for

The Full Moon in Taurus is a time to get back to earth, to get grounded, to work through any negative feelings you’ve been dealing with and to find a balance between being passionate and being overly intense. Money issues may come to a head at the time of the Full Moon in Taurus, but you can take this card as a sign to pay more attention to your cash flow no matter when you draw it.

 

Blessings! Enjoy! Happy Halloween

October New Super Moon Magical Reading

New Moon Card Reading, this is a good one and goes with the New Moon for sure.


 

The South Node, like the North Node, is a karmic point, but it is opposite to the North Node and relates to the past, perhaps even to past lives. Whatever you are going through and whatever you’re asking about, there’s a chance that age-old programming and conditioning is stopping you from achieving all that you might. Do you feel stuck in something? This card will often come as a sign that the situation or relationship you are asking about has somehow become suffocating, even toxic. It suggests that someone (you, even) needs to be released, that there’s some kind of addiction going on or an unhealthy attachment that needs to be sorted out. One thing is for sure – when you get this card you’re being challenged to make some changes, even if staying where you are feels easier and safer.

Attune to the Moon

I release the past.

Additional meanings for this card

• A relationship is karmic and has played out across many lifetimes. 

• Your attraction to someone may be verging on the obsessive. 

• Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should.

The teaching

The South Node is where the Moon crosses the ecliptic going south. On the horoscope chart it shows us what we are likely to become obsessed with, but which will probably do us little or no good. The South Node is the karmic astrological point that reminds us of the well-known phrase, ‘If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got!’

Harvest Full Moon Ritual October 1, 2020

 

Harvest Full Moon Ritual October 2020


This Aries Full Moon is known as the "Harvest Moon"... This is the first of two full moons in the month of October, There will be another at the end of the month. 

And in many senses is the final Full Moon of the season (and a culmination of energy) before the season's change and we fully embrace the new.

October is definitely one of the more heated months of the year. It seems that everything 2020 has brought us is coming to a head, and having two Full Moons in the same month indicates a theme of clearing and purging.

With this Full Moon there is an opportunity to harvest and claim all you've learned from and grown through as you boldly embrace the new season.This time also re[presents an opportunity to reap the rewards achieved since the Summer Solstice. Harvest Moon's are also perceived as cleansing. As a result this is an ideal time to release and let it go if there is something you no longer wish to take with you into the new season.

This is a good time to complete projects you have in process...This is also a healing time


Clean your space (inner and outer) and to let go of whatever is holding you back or weighing you down...

As we all now prepare for the next cycles of inner growth and transformation...remember to give yourself time and space. This is not a time to make rash decisions or over react over the small stuff.

Shifting paradigms and stepping forward into the new!



Full Moon Ritual

This ritual is best done between September 28-October 5, 2020

You will need:

·         Aura cleansing tool of choice (Palo Santo Stick, Salt, White Sage)

·         Heatpack or hot towel/compress

·         Bowl of saltwater or seawater 

·         Essential Oils 

          Gemstone 

·         Hair Mask or DIY Hair Oil (optional)

·         Aries Full Moon Reading

 For the DIY Hair Oil blend any vegetable oil with a few drops of your favorite essential oil– feel free to adjust this however you see fit.

Directions:

First, Start by cleansing your aura, and then your surroundings and ritual ingredients. Set your intuition for this ritual. (Some examples My intention is to cultivate greater harmony and balance. My intention is to clear my energy and raise my vibration. My intention is to manifest vibrant wellbeing). As you cleanse your aura free to recite the following- 

Under the light of this Full Moon, I ask to be cleansed, to be free, to release all that does not serve me. I ask for a clear mind and a clear heart. I ask all energies that are no longer aligned with my highest good to leave this space now I am now cleansed, my space is now cleansed..  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

Next,  Have your bowl of saltwater next to you. Take your hot compress or hot towel and place it over your forehead. Take an essential oil of choice, I recommend Sandalwood, Lavender, Frankincense or any grounding blend. Put a few drops in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and cup and take three deep inhales and exhales. Place gemstone of choice over your heart chakra. Lay down and start your meditation of choice. Sound Meditation below.


Third, After the meditation, remove the compress and gently begin massaging your forehead. Massage your temples in a circular motion. Drum your fingers across your forehead. Run your hands through your hair, massaging your scalp with the hair oil if using. Aim to massage this area for 5-10 minutes.

4th Apply the Hair Mask. While the hair oil is working its magic and your scalp and forehead is nicely massaged, take your pen and paper and write down 5-10 things you would like to release and let go of in your life.  Recommended Essential Oils, Rosemary and Lavender, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus, and

Frankincense and Lavender. Enjoy!

Fifth.  Hold what you have written in both hands and recite the following slowly and with meaning– 

“I release the fears of yesterday and any obstacles that are holding me back. I forgive and let go of the past and no longer carry it with me.. I wash away my fears and replace them with the wisdom of my higher self."

6. Take your paper and begin ripping it into shreds. Once it’s all in little pieces place it into the bowl of salt water. Leave it there overnight and discard in the morning.

If you were using a hair mask, please follow the package directions. For the DIY mask, feel free to leave it in on for as long as comfortable.

Last, Follow up with daily meditations and oracle card readings.
