Happy Full Planting Moon!
Spring is sprouting all around for those of us on the Northern Hemisphere, and there is sense of newness in the air.
You may be feeling this new energy stirring within you.
The seeds and intentions that we have planted are gaining momentum and you could be seeing some progress happening or at least feeling internal shifts happening.
The Full Planting Moon is a reminder that the garden needs constant tending.
One of the most important parts of gardening is the weeding process.
When we weed a garden, we remove unwelcome plants that may be creeping in, while churning up and exposing new soil and nutrients from the Earth. Essentially, clearing out the old, to make way for the new growth.
This Full Planting Moon holds potent clearing and weeding energy. With the lunar energies taking place in Libra and Scorpio; you are asked to take a look deep within yourself and find what needs to be weeded or swept out. This will help you make room for the new growth you've been cultivating.
We have put together a Besom Cleansing Ritual tonight to help you energetically and literally cleanse your home of old unwanted energy to make way for new growth.
You can make any mundane daily chore into an intention infused ritual! Tonight, we are using our brooms to help us sweep away any old energies that may be inhibiting our growth.
The Pagan Broom, or Besom is used for cleansing and protection. It's traditionally made from hawthorn, birch twigs and willow wood.
Besoms are often hung above entry ways to offer protection, and they are used in hand-fasting ceremonies, as they represent both the masculine and the feminine.
Besoms can sweep out negative energy and help banish it.
Some people don't allow the bristles to actually touch the ground, while many do.
(You can even make your own besom for sacred use right here!)
There is no need to have an expensive besom for tonight's ritual, you can use any broom! Pair tonight's Full Planting Moon with your intention to help you cleanse away the dust from both your soul and your home!
Besom Cleansing Blessing
You will need:
A Broom (Any type of broom will do, even if it's just your typical household broom!)
Sage to burn
Mindfully clean your home. Clear our any junk and clutter that is physically or emotionally obstructing your growth, saving sweeping for last.
When you are ready to begin sweeping, set a clear intention within yourself of what you would like to remove and sweep away.
Smudge your broom three times. Cleansing away all the past energies and stories your broom holds.
Sweep your house from east to west keeping your intention in mind.You will likely be feeling lighter and more energetic as you do this process. Repeat the spell as you finish your sweeping.
"With my sacred broom,
I remove all doom and gloom.
I sweep from the deep,
that I wish to no longer keep.
With a freshly swept grown,
Negativity be bound,
I make room for positivity,
So Mote it be."
Cleanse yourself and your broom one more time before putting it away.
Now that you have cleared your home's energy, what will you allow in to fill up this space?
Use tonight's Full Moon to set a powerful intention of what you want to allow in. You aren't making a goal that you have to strive for, instead,plant a seed of an emotion you want to bring in more of!
Emotions like security, joy, passion, love and gratitude would be wonderful ones to plant right now.
The card pulled for this phase was Taurus, aka the Lover. The sun enters into the Earthy sign of Taurus this month, reminding us to plant only high vibrational seeds of love and joy.
Happy Full Moon!
Tonight is a great night to cleanse and charge your crystals and decks under the Full Moon!
