Happy Full Supermoon!
This Full Moon takes place on the 19th of February and is also a Supermoon!
This is the second Supermoon in a series of three, (we will have another supermoon in March!) but this Supermoon is also the biggest Supermoon of the year!
Pretty cool compared to February of 2018 having no full moon at all!
A Supermoon is when the moon orbits closest to the Earth, making the moon appear larger in the sky, thus amplifying the lunar energies and our emotions.
The moon is symbolic of our inner world, our intuition and our emotions, and this one is the Planting Moon according to the Spirit de la Lune deck. It’s important to take note of what you are “planting” right now!
This Supermoon in Virgo represents a very potent time for manifestation and achieving our goals… Especially with it taking place in 0º which holds total raw potential for new beginnings.
This Full Moon is adventurous and exciting holding lots of opportunities for change. Be on the lookout for good news and a sense of things coming together.
Our last New Moon post talked about answers coming and things finally falling into place… to help make that happen, we’ve put together a special ritual for this Full Moon!
We will be combining several earth elements into an intention oil and then using it to anoint an intention infused candle!
You can do this ritual on the days preparing for the full moon, or on the full moon! Preparing the oil a day ahead can be helpful, but it’s not needed!
Anointing Oil & Candle Ritual
You Will Need
Making the oil:
Using a paper funnel pour your carrier oil into your prepared jar.
Once the jar is about 3/4 full, add the herbs and essential oils of your choice. Be mindful as you add each ingredient. It’s important to remember your intent while you are making the oil!
When you have added all of the herbs and oils, add a crystal or two to the oil as a final intent and offering.
Give your bottle a good shake and cleanse and charge it under the moonlight surrounded by a crystal grid.
This oil can now be used for anything you want!
Lunar energy can be felt 3 days prior, and 3 days after the Lunar event, so you can make and charge this any time around the Full Moon and still be able to use it!
Depending on the carrier oil you used you can use it as a perfume or hand/lip moisturizer. You can use it to anoint crystals or other special objects. We created it for anointing candles for this Full Moon.
A powerful but simple way to solidify and add power to your intention is to create an intention candle!
Choose your candle color based on your intention or goal and come up with a simple word, affirmation, symbol or sigil that will help solidify your intent.
For this Full Moon Ritual, I carved the word “Home” into my candle to help me find the home that I’ve been looking for. I’m hoping that burning it on my altar with the vision board from last November will help give me that last push I need!
Using an altar knife or athame, carve into your word, symbol or phrase into your candle.
(You can use paint or glitter to help the carving stand out!)
Once the candle is carved and ready, anoint it with your intention oil.
There are several ways that you can anoint your candle and many schools of thought on it.
Some say that rubbing the oil from the top to the bottom of the candle will help bring in prosperity and growth, while rubbing the oil from the bottom up will help banish or get rid of something in your life.
There are no set rules on this, so as long as you rub the oil into the candle with intention, you are anointing it.
Burn the candle during the Full Moon on your altar. Remember to only burn under supervision and during ritual. This will keep your altar safe and your awareness focused on your intent.
You can use this candle to burn written intentions on paper later if you don’t want to burn it all in one night.
Leave your oil bottle and your candle out with your decks and crystals to charge under the Full Supermoon! Don’t forget you can reuse this oil for many things! It’s infused with potent Virgo energy and lots of intention so be sure to use it up.
