Happy Full Corn Moon, beauties!
We hope this moon cycle has been fruitful with blessings and abundance!
Today we will show you how to bless any of your tarot and oracle decks with this powerful card blessing ceremony. Cleansing and blessing your cards periodically can help release stagnant energies and old readings from the cards so you can begin anew. But blessing them as well can amplify and expand your readings. And cards can really help us call in certain energies and archetypes we want to work with in our life!
It is best to do this ceremony under a Full Moon because your intuition is heightened and the Full moon’s light amplifies and illuminates energies. The Corn moon also amplifies the blessings you are bestowing and calling in with your cards!
This ceremony pairs perfectly with our Spirit de la Lune deck (the Prism edition is still available!), but you can also use any tarot or oracle deck you feel called to work with.
What you need:
Your chosen tarot or oracle deck
somewhere safe outside to lay down your cards
Optional items for elemental cleanse:
Air: Incense or herbal wand
Fire: A white or yellow candle (for the full corn moon)
Water: Moon water in a bowl or chalice (charged by the Corn Moon)
Earth: A bowl of salt and stones to cover each of your cards (they do not necessarily have to be gemstones! surrounding stones will do nicely!)
To prepare, place a glass bowl or jar out under the moonlight for at least 2 hours.
Within that two hour time frame take your chosen deck and and write an affirmation for each card. Write an affirmation based on the energy of the card and what you want to call in.
If you are using the Spirit de la Lune deck, we created one for you!
(There are also blank pages to use for any tarot or oracle deck!)
When you are ready, find a place outside under the moonlight where you can spread your cards out. The easiest way to reset and cleanse your deck is to put them all back in order.
Place the cards facing up toward the moonlight and form a circle with them while placing them in order. If you don’t know what order to put them in look at the guidebook for reference.
For our deck, I put the Moon phase card all together, then the Full Moondalas and then the Zodiac cards in the inner ring.
Perform the optional Elemental cleanse/blessing now. Read further down for details.
Leave your cards out under the moonlight until the next morning. To secure them down place stones on top of them. If you do not feel comfortable leaving them out all night, let them charge at least 2-3 hours under the moonlight.
The next morning…
When it is time to gather your cards have take your affirmations ready. Going in order pick up your first card and stone and say aloud the affirmation the goes with it 3 times. Really claim it! You are calling in this energy into your deck and your life!
You can keep the stones you used and place them in a basket or in your garden to keep the energy near you.
Go around and picking up each card and stating each affirmation 3 times. Feel the magick of each affirmation settle into your body and fave fun!
We will be discontinuing 2019 Tune to the Moon Planners at the end of August! And we will be selling the extra stickers very soon! We are still working on the 2020 planner and trying to find a local printer still! That is a small feat in itself!
Optional Elemental Blessing & Cleanse
Pic of the elements
After your cards are all laid out how you like them get your items out for each element.
Starting with Air and in the direction of East. Always moving clockwise around the circle, take your incense or herbal wand, light it, and waft the smoke over your cards and say:
“By Air you are renewed.”
When you get back to where you are began, waft the smoke over your body and say, “By Air, I am renewed.”
Move to the South for Fire. Light your candle and slowly and carefully move around the circle clockwise hovering the candle over each card saying:
“By Fire you are purified.”
Once you get back to wear you started, hover each candle over your chakras moving downward and then back upward saying, “By Fire, I am purified.”
Move to the West for Water. Take your moon water and lightly flick water over the cards as you move clockwise saying:
“By Water, you are cleansed.”
When you get back to the west drink a little bit of the moon water and say, “By Water, I am cleansed.” and pour a little but onto the Earth.
Move to the North for Earth. With your bowl of salt, as you walk clockwise, sprinkle the salt around your cards and say:
“By Earth, you are protected.”
When you get back to the North, sprinkle some salt on your tongue and say, “By Earth, I am protected.” Then proceed to place each stone over your cards.
We hope this Blessing Card Ceremony brings in more abundance and blessings for you throughout the rest of the year!
Please share your cards and ceremonies with us! Happy Full Corn Moon!
