Happy Full Corn Moon & Lunar Eclipse!
This month we are tapping into this powerful lunar event and creating sigils for abundance! Keep on reading to learn how to utilize this energy for your prosperity!
This is a very powerful Lunar Eclipse with many astrological aspects influencing the energy around us. This Lunar Eclipse takes place in the sign of Aquarius and is paired with Jupiter Square Pluto, which are connected very closely to the sun and the moon.
A Lunar Eclipse happens when the Earth is between the Sun and the Full Moon. The Sun which represents our ego, logic and action, will challenge our emotions, intuition and insight which are ruled by the Moon.
These aspects will be influencing and impacting relationships on many levels. Be prepared for some heightened energy and emotions during this time! Big changes can happen during this time! So be careful what you do and say during these days, as actions have lasting results this week.
Not all of this energy has to be heavy or dark, so don't be afraid of this transit! This time is important for clearing away old residual emotions. The Eclipse can offer us a bit of a rebirth, allowing us to release some of the heavier emotions we have been holding onto since the last Lunar Eclipse 6 months ago.
This Full Moon is also the Corn Moon! A time of abundance, fulfillment and the first harvest.
This is the time to step into your abundance. Many of the goals and intentions you've set forth are beginning to come to fruition.
Take notice of the growth around you, especially during this Eclipse Season!
Practice gratitude and appreciation in order to step into your full stream of abundance.
Last month, we set up an Abundance Grid and this month we are ramping up that magick and pairing it with the powerful Eclipse energy by working with Sigils.
A Sigil is a symbol infused with great intention.
A Sigil is a symbol created to represent a specific goal, intention, or desire, and to aid in it's manifestations.
They are very powerful tools of magick, and are perfect to work with on such a big Lunar Event.
Sigils speak to our subconscious, and help break down barriers towards what we desire.
The process of creating a sigil is very fun, creative and quite simple!
Making a Sigil
You will need:
Create a quiet sacred space to do your magick. Lower the lights, remove distractions, or light some candles to help prepare the mood.
First define your desire. It is important to know clearly what it is you want. The universe can not help you, until you make a decision. This Full Moon is focused on abundance and prosperity, so now is a good time to open yourself up the surrounding energy.
You can either write our an entire sentence, or just use one word. I chose just one word for my sigil, but you can choose several. We will be removing some of the letters and changing it up soon. Choose a word of phrase that feels comfortable and suited to your desire.
If you choose to work with an entire sentence, remember to keep it in the present tense. ( "I am prosperous, I have great abundance. etc.. not "I will have great abundance.)
Next, remove any repeated letters you have keeping only one of each.
(Optional) Remove the vowels. Vowels are what helps us recognize that something is a word and we are trying to take that aspect out! But, if your sigil looks better with the vowels, keep them in!
Arrange your remaining letters into a symbol or a shape.
Or, you can simplify the letters to marks or basic shapes and use those to create your symbol. Remember to make it yours by adding any embellishments you'd like!
Play around with the remaining letters to create a sigil. The can be upside down, backwards, small, big.. whatever you feel called to!
Combine lines of one letter into another. Try to think abstract. Take time to doodle and arrange the letters into a symbol you like! It took me several tries to find out that resonated with me.
I used the C and part of the D to create a moon like symbol in the Abundance one. And combined the S, R, T, P into one flowy symbol for the Prosperity one. (And you can see a few of my other ideas and doodles on the other pages! Have fun creating your sigil, and don't think too much on it.
It is a good thing that your symbol no longer looks like your word or sentence. In fact, it is meant to be forgotten!
Activating Your Sigil
The Activation of your sigil is just as important as the creation part. You have just built up a lot of creative and emotional energy making this sigil. In order for it to work, you must do something to release it and send it into the universe.
There are many methods to activating a sigil. Many practitioners recommend meditation/staring at the sigil, orgasm, or pain, all paired with visualization.. with the point of a build and release process.
There isn't a right or wrong way, so choose whatever feels right to you. Here are three ideas for activating your sigil:
You can stare at your sigil intently for several minutes, allowing your mind and subconscious to absorb it. In a quiet place, where you are undisturbed, meditate on your Sigil. Stare at it with wide eyes, fixate on your symbol. After several minutes, you may see colors or lines around your sigil. Almost like lightning flashes. This will let your know that your sigil has been activated and sent out. Then destroy your sigil.
Another simple method is burning your sigil and allowing the flame to get very close to your fingers. Take caution if you decide to do this one! Allow the flames to get a little too close to your fingers, and at the moment of heat, picture your sigil intensely in your mind's eye and then move your hand away. Do not think of the word, or the sentence, instead just focus on the sigil and let your subconscious absorb it to do the rest of the work.
If you do not want to use pain or flame, you do not have to! There are more enjoyable ways of activating your sigil.
Another method is to use your sexual energy to activate it.
You can tape it to your wall or ceiling on the night of the Eclipse. Pleasure yourself or engage in sex with your partner. At the moment of sexual climax look at and stare at your sigil. Do not think of the word, or the sentence or even the outcome, instead focus on the sigil and let your subconscious absorb it and send it out.
When you are finished, destroy the sigil in some way that feels right to you. Some practitioners reuse and reactivate their sigils, while others burn it quickly after activation.
The point is to build up your desire, then release it and let it go, so when you are done with this ceremony. go do something to take your mind off of it. Return back to the real world, knowing that the magic is on it's way.
