22 Full Moon Ritual Ideas

Thou chosen sister of the Spirit, That gazes on thee till in thee it pities ...

- To the Moon


The moon governs the waters and according to many religions, witches and spiritual leaders does more than affect us. The full moon is thought to bring our emotions to the surface, whether those be good or bad, peaceful or violent. In fact as many have mentioned the word "lunatic" comes from the Late Latin "lunaticus" a belief that during the full moon caused temporary insanity (in women).

Contrary to a new moon ritual during which we may set intentions and plan our goals, the full moon encourages us to let go. With the sun and moon as far away from each other as they are ever our ego and emotions take a break from each other and we are temporarily awarded the ability to see and analyze our emotions.

Let's talk moon rituals. As some of you may know a full moon ritual can be a truly wonderful experience of self-aliment and connecting to your inner spirituality. The full moon is a powerful energetic occurrence that signifies the monthly ending of a cycle and in our life, it is our chance to let go of that which we have been looking to release, it is a great time to connect to ourselves and really take inventory of our life.
