Full Super Planting Moon Crystal Grid Creation

Happy Full Planting Moon and Equinox Blessings!

This Full Super Moon is the Planting Moon in the sign of Libra, a sign that loves balance and structure… it is also taking place on the Equinox. This Full Moon holds potent energy!

We are all experiencing a new shift in the energy with a new season ahead of us! The Equinox seasons are a time of balance, and we thought this would be a wonderful time to teach you how to create a crystal grid to help you align your energy to your intentions and desires, bringing you into the balance with your purpose and truth.

This Full Super Moon is the Planting Moon in the sign of Libra, a sign that loves balance and structure… it is also taking place on the Equinox! This Full Moon holds potent energy!

Putting different crystals and stones together in geometric patterns activates the crystalline energies of each crystal and generates a beautiful union of their energies. A crystal grid channels a vortex of hyper-focused intention and pure healing energy from Gaia. Crystal grids are beautiful, creative, and very fun and meditative to make. And when aligned with the Moon phases (this Full Moon!) you can learn to work with the energies of the cosmos and with Gaia to truly manifest your desires in the physical realm.

Intention is key.

First, you must know your intention for your crystal grid. Why do you want to make a crystal grid? What needs healing energy right now? What needs to be activated within you? What feelings do you wish to invoke with this grid? Choose your crystals accordingly. This process alone will take intention and research. You do not need to buy all new stones to make your crystal grid – start with what you have and follow your intuition. You can make your grid as large and complex, or as small and simple as you wish. Do what feels good to you.

 
Spirit de la Lune Full Planting Moon Crystal Grid Ritual
 

We always begin with the center stone -the core essence of your grid that gets programmed by the surrounding crystals. This can be a cluster, generator point, a sphere, a specimen, or even a small tumbled stone - but it typically is different than the rest. The center could even be a candle, tarot card, an affirmation, statue, or talisman you want to be charged with the crystal energies. You can use a Moondala card from the Spirit de la Lune deck!

Spirit de la Lune Full Planting Moon Crystal Grid Ritual

If you are having a hard time choosing your intention, draw a tarot or oracle card and place it at the center. You can place the stones over your card or spread. Choose as many other stones as you want to go around your center stone that have complimenting energies. Having multiple of the same stone will build that specific energy. Having a variety of stones will each add their own unique vibrational signature. The choice is always up to you and what you have on hand. There is no wrong way of doing this!

Program your crystals.

Before you lay each stone, (starting with the center stone and working outward) hold each stone (you can hold each one individually, or multiple in your hands) near your heart and pour your intention into it. Visualize pure crystal energy coming up from the earth into your body, and pure stardust galactic energy from the Heavens pouring through your crown – let both energies meet at your heart center and pour into your stones. Use all your senses, and focus on your intentions and the feelings you wish to invoke. The crystals will hold these energies. I personally believe all stones are programmable. They want to connect with us and help us on our journey. Each stone you have has already chosen you too. Remember that!

Setting up Your Crystal Grid

Now set up your grid from the center stone and moving outward in a clockwise motion. Remember to set up your grid with humbleness and reverence. We are activating the crystalline grid of the earth, our bodies, and other realms while creating this powerful vortex-energy. When creating crystal grids you are shifting the grids of the old paradigms and creating new ones! This is very powerful earth magick! The Flower of Life mandala is a great sacred geometric map to align your grid with. Traditional grids are symmetric for even energy distribution, but as you create intuitively and work with your stones, create a design that appeals to you and your intentions. Think of it as a crystal mandala (or snowflake!) -no one will ever make this mandala ever again! Each stone and design is different -you are also activating the powerful and unique crystal healer within you and bringing your own vibe to this creation!

Activate your grid.

Spirit de la Lune Full Planting Moon Crystal Grid Ritual

After laying each stone, take a crystal point and use it as a wand to activate the grid. If you have a traditional wand already, you can use that instead. Or simply use your dominant index finger. Begin and touch the center stone/object with your wand of choice, and from there touch the top crystal (twelve o’clock position) and moving clockwise, touch the next crystal (one o’clock), and then touch back to the center stone. Next, from the center stone touch the stone at one o’clock position then the two o’clock position, then back to the center, and so forth. You are drawing a line of energy and connecting each stone together. Think connect the dots, but always bringing the energy back to the center stone. Really visualize this line of energy you are creating through each crystal connection. What color is it? How does the energy feel? While you are doing this, infuse the grid with your intentions… What feelings and emotions do you want to program into the grid? Truly feel those emotions surface. Do you feel the vibration and aura of the grid growing and shifting? Are you feeling any different? Go around the grid at least once until you are back up to the top stone and connecting it back to the center. I personally prefer to go around in 3’s, but you can always go around as many times as you feel called to. But always complete the circle by ending at the top of the grid and back to center stone. Depending on how complex and layered your grid is, it could take a while! Stay focused and soften your gaze, opening your third-eye, and you may find yourself in a trance or peaceful meditative state! This is the basis for creating and activating a crystal grid!

If you created it on a tray or plate, place it under the Full Moon to charge it!

Keep the grid up as long as you feel you need it, or until you feel it has done what it needs to do. If animals or little’s knock it down, it usually is a good indicator that the crystal grid has shifted what it needs to shift and is no longer needed, or it is time to readjust it! However, if your intuition says otherwise, you can always reactivate it and set it up again (try to find a place it can be left undisturbed). See what unfolds and trust the crystals are assisting you in the way you need, not necessarily the way you would prefer. Crystal grids teach us to trust the process.

Full Moon Intention Planting Ceremony

Full Planting Moon | Spirit de la Lune

Happy Full Planting Moon!

The Planting Moon represents the time of year when the soil has finally thawed enough for planting.

Seedlings are able to root downward while simultaneously breaking up through the soil towards the sun.

This Full Moon is a powerful time for our goals and holds deep symbolism for us and our own goals. Take time to check in with your New Moon intentions today. Notice your progress and make the preparations for the next steps you need to take.

Tonight's Full Moon takes place in the sign of Libra, which brings balance and harmony to the forefront of our minds. Libra also affects partnerships and relationships, this might cause us to notice what is out of balance in our personal relationships.

Mercury is Retrograde until the 15th of April, and Venus moved into Taurus today. This is going to continue to put a big spotlight on our relationships and how we communicate with one another. It's important to be gentle with ourselves and others. 

Planting Moon Ceremony | Spirit de la Lune

Be aware of how your actions and words can either help or harm others. Every word that you speak holds the same power as a seed. Use this power wisely.  

During last month's New Moon Energy Reading we pulled Taurus: The Lovers. This card shows us the importance of gentleness right now. With Venus moving into Taurus today our relationships and our selves will need some extra love. We have so much going on up in the skies right now, the best thing we can do is extend some love.

Taurus is an Earth Sign and pulling this card also shows how much we need grounding from Mother Earth right now! For tonight’s Full Moon Ceremony we are going to get our hands a bit dirty.

Soil is full of negative ions that can not only help boost our moods and serotonin levels, but it helps stabilize blood pressure and boosts our immune system!

This ceremony also takes the physical act of planting a seed along with our intention to help solidify it within ourselves as well as giving the universe an extra boost with our determined action.

Full moon intention planting ceremony.

Intention Planting Ceremony | Spirit de la Lune

Having a plant represent your intention can help remind you of what you "planted." It acts as an anchor for us; each time we see it, we are reminded of the goals that we have put into the soil for ourselves.

You will need:

  • your intention( from last new moon preferably)

  • A seed or plant that needs repotting

  • Soil

  • Pot for planting

  • Moon water

  • Crystals or other items that support your intention.

 

 


Intention Setting | Spirit de la lune

 

1. Write your intention on a new slip of paper. Be sure to write your intention in present tense. Using "I am" phrases rather than "I want" can be helpful when making and setting intentions.

You can use your intention from last New Moon, or use an entirely new one. It's best to keep the intention short and sweet, and write it on a small piece of paper.

 

2. Fill a new pot with fresh soil and add your intention to the base of the soil. Add a bit of water to this base soil and a little bit more soil. The soil should become maluable almost like a loose clay.

Spirit de la Lune | Intention Planting Moon Ceremony

3. Plant your seed or re-pot a plant that needs it. 

Don't forget to break up the roots gently of the plant you are repotting, and be give it some soil from it's "home" pot to help keep it comfortable. 

4. Water your plant with Moon Water until the soil is sufficiently damp. (Water that has been left out in the moonlight will hold the lunar energy, and can be very beneficial to us and our house plants!) 

5. Decorate your plant with crystals or items that represent your intention to you.

If you are like me, you can even give your plant a name to help solidify the intention even more. I named this one Treasure to help me remember my intention as well as give my plant a bit of a personality.

Having a plant represent an intention can help remind you of what it is that you have planted. It also acts as an reminder for us each time we pass it or see it.

Take notice of the growth and see how it correlates with your intention and goals. All things in life are connected; remember to give the plant and your goals/intentions adequate attention and energy for growth and progression. 

Charge your plant under the full moonlight and continue giving it moon water and your attention when you can. 

Don’t forget to charge your deck and crystals under the moonlight tonight!

We would love to see a photo of your intention plant! Please share with us on instagram or in the comments!

Full Planting Moon- Besom Blessing Spell and Ritual

Happy Full Planting Moon! 

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.

Besom Magick

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

Planting Moon

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.

Full Moon in Libra/Scorpio

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!

 

 

 

Planting Moon : A Nourish and Release Ceremony

Happy Full Moon!

The seed has sprouted!

New life is growing & flowing wild as we welcome in the Planting Moon!

Planting Moon Mandala | Spirit de la Lune

The Planting Moon brings us back to Mamma Earth's energy and heralds in the nurturing cycle of Taurus. It's time to reconnect with Gia and nourish the seeds that have been planted.  

Now is the time to harness your creative energy and nurture the seeds you planted from last month's Seed Moon Ceremony.

Planting Moon Mandala Card | Spirit de la Lune

Full Planting Moon :

Nourish & Release Ceremony 

This ceremony will help you nurture your intentions from the New Moon Phase by releasing that which is holding you back from blooming. We will be weeding out, releasing and transmuting that energy into something more beneficial! 

Just as soon as the seeds sprout and grow in the garden, weeds tend to pop up as well! The Full Planting Moon is the perfect opportunity to pull out any weeds that are keeping you from growing.

Before you begin this ceremony, meditate and journal about your intentions, allow all that you wish to weed out and release to be written out. Remember to dive deeper than just the physical realm, what do you need to release so that your spirit and mind may grow as well? 

For extra guidance try pulling the Planting Moon Spread from the guide book! This spread was specially designed for this full moon, so it is extra potent at this time and may show you the hidden answers you've been looking for!

Planting Moon | Spirit de la Lune

what needs to be cleared out at this time in order for you to grow and bloom? 

What needs to be nurtured and cultivated?

What kind of things are holding you down? 

For This Ritual:

Fire Ceremony

You will need:

  • Paper and a pencil

 

  • Clear Intentions

 

  • Safe place or container for a fire

 

  • A house plant or space in nature

 

The Full Planting Moon can assist you in releasing any stagnant energy, habits or thoughts that no longer serve you.

Open your circle and set your sacred space any way you'd like. Set your intention to release and renew. 

Review your journal and the results from your reading and make a clear list of all that you want to release. This is a weeding process, a time to release all that is holding you back. Be clear in your intention.

Write anything and everything that is no longer serving you. This can be anything from attitudes, emotions, pain, relationships, thoughts, or illness. Pretty much anything that isn't working in your life can go onto this sheet of paper. 

Become aware of where you are putting your energy and your focus over this last lunar cycle. If it does not support your passions, allow it to be weeded out. 

Once your list is complete, take it under the Full Moon's light and burn it in a safe container for fire. Watch the flames engulf your list of weeds and watch the smoke dissipate into the night sky. 

When the fire has gone out, gather the ashes to use as food for Pacha Mamma, Gaia, our Mother Earth.

Pour the ashes into your garden, out in nature, or into a houseplant. The Earth has the powerful ability to transmute energy into something beneficial for us, or others.

As you sprinkle your ashes, repeat a prayer, mantra or state your intentions aloud. Tell Mother Earth of your intentions for releasing and transformation.

Mother Earth, under this full moon's light, take that which no longer serves me, turn it into food for another.

Transmute this energy into something beneficial for my highest good and the highest good of all.

And so it is. 

Planting Moon Ceremony | Spirit de la Lune

Close your circle and take some time to nurture yourself now. Purify and ground your energy with a salt bath. Spend time in nature under your favorite tree or with your toes buried in some soil. 

If you have the Spirit de la Lune deck, be sure to charge it under tonight's Full Moon with your favorite crystals and divination tools! The Spirit de la Lune deck loves charging under the Moon's light and doing so under a full moon will make the deck in tune with the moon.

If you used the Planting Moon Spread, be sure to tag #SpiritdelaLune on instagram so we can see and feature your deck! We absolutely love seeing these cards in action!
