Happy Full Flower Moon!
We are approaching the peak of the Flower Moon cycle, and we will soon be in the currents of the watery sensuality of the Full Moon in Scorpio on 5/10/17!
The Flower Moon in Scorpio is the full blooming energy of the Flower Moon cycle and in astrology is considered Lunar Beltane - with the Sun in Taurus (Venus ruled) and the Moon in Scorpio (Mars ruled).. merging the Feminine and Masculine energies together as one.
Carve out some time to relax and create a beautiful bathing ceremony while the moon is full and in bloom. Down below we have some ideas and recipes you can try! Try them all or the ones you are drawn to... follow your intuition!
Remember to prep your Rose water and rose quartz stones in advanced, by sitting them out under the Waxing moon until the Full Moon on 5/10! Do this for at least 1-2 days in advanced!
Bath tub (if you do not have a bathtub use a bucket or bowl for a foot soak!)
Organic flowers (or dried flowers)
Sea salt or Epsom salt
Rose water (place out under the Waxing moon leading up to the Full Moon)
Half an avocado
1/4 of a large cucumber
Your favorite perfume oil
Body oil or lotion
Tumbled rose quartz stones (place in rose water, or out under the waxing moon!)
Candles, incense, enchanting music (create a beautiful atmosphere!)
Your favorite lingerie or nightie!
Chocolate and wine of course!
Take some time to gather your items and reflect on the Moon cycle thus far:
What is blooming in your life right now?
What needs more nourishment?
Where are you sending your love and devotion?
Are you receptive to the love and abundance in your life?
Flower Moon Petal Soak:
2 cups epsom salt (or 1 cup each of epsom and sea salt)
Dried flowers or fresh edible flowers
1/4 cup rosewater
10 - 15 drops of your favorite essential oil or oil perfume!
Adding tumbled rose quartz is optional!
While stirring the salt with the flowers, slowly pour in the rose water and blend together evenly. Imagine pouring all your love into this mixture! Don't forget to add your favorite drops of oil and stir well! We love Ylang Ylang!
Soothing Avocado Mask:
1/2 of an Avocado
1/4 of cucumber (make sure to cut some slices for your eyes!)
2 tbs of rose water
Blend all these items up in a blender until smooth. Add more Avocado for a creamier texture. You could also add more Rose Water if it is too thick, mine was a whipped texture. Feel free to peel the cucumber to have a smother finish, but it is not necessary.
Directions for use: Apply to your clean face, neck, and decolletage for 15-20 mins. You could add it to your hair as well if you have extra. It will be very cooling at first, and your face will glow afterward! Feel free to adorn your face with cucumber slices, rose quartz, and edible flowers :)
Apply the mask during your Flower Moon ceremony below...
Now that you have all your items prepped, on the day of the Full Moon, carve some time out your schedule to relax and pamper yourself. During anytime of this ceremony, feel free to invite a partner or lover to join you ;)
You can also do this ceremony with your Mother and make it a Spa day for Mother's Day this coming Sunday! Instead of a bath, you can make it a foot soak and have pedicures after!
Make all your recipes, and create an altar around your bath and bathroom, ready your nightie, light your candles and let your music invoke your body and desires to stir within. Do not draw your bath quite yet, as it may be cold by the time you get into it!
Once you are ready, go out under the Full Moon and stand below her and bask in her beauty. Offer her some of your flowers, and imagine her Moonlight shining down into your heart chakra and spreading through the whole ocean of your body. Where is the energy settling in your body? Breathe in and out this lunar energy, this tidal breath.
Write in your journal about the prompts above and write a list of everything that invokes your sultry desires.
What stirs your soul?
If you are having a hard time figuring this out, ask Luna to help you clarify this during your ceremonial bath.
Under the moonlight, take your perfume and anoint your Heart chakra, say out loud your intention to the Moon and leave Her a few drops of the oil as well.
When you are ready, apply your mask (I used a makeup brush for a smoother application) and if you can, lay out under the moonlight while your mask is soaking into your skin! If that doesn't work for you, you can draw your bath now and lay in your bath with the mask on.
The Moon lives in the lining of your skin.
When you are ready, wash your face off and draw your bath. Add any drops of oil to your bath and pour in your bath salts. Bring in your wine and chocolate, and soak in these soothing waters and allow every muscle to relax. Drift away in your fantasies and allow any messages from Luna to come through. Take your time.
After your luxurious bath, massage your body with your favorite lotion or oil, and get into your sexy nightie. Go back outside and thank Lady Luna for her love and clarity. Leave out some wine for the Faeries and the land. And for the rest of your night, stay receptive to any messages, yearnings, or desires that come from deep within. Go back to your list of things that invoke your desires and see how you can incorporate those into your daily life.
We hope you enjoyed this ceremony and find it deepens you into the enchanting magick of the Flower Moon and your sultry body.
