WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
The energies involved with this Full Moon on Friday are all about letting old things go and finding that last bit of healing you need so you can move forward to a goal you had set long ago. This is especially highlighted because it is also a lunar eclipse.
This a time to drop old patterns, relationships, and perspectives that no longer serve you. Pisces is a sign well known to enable holding onto things simply because this dreamy sign sees the potential in everything - even if that potential cannot be tapped, Pisces wants to believe that it can. This is a sign of illusion and naivety that hates to face reality and would much rather live in dreamland; imagining things to be far better than they are.
Many people are beginning to see the real hidden meaning behind the chaos that has been surrounding them. After all of the smoke settles from these drastic and dramatic changes Mercury Retrograde has been bestowing upon us, we can then see the method behind all of that madness and a moment of clarity will come. For many, this is comes as a rude awakening that later turns into a blessing in disguise.
However, even though things will end up smoothing out (granted, if you decide to follow the course - resist and you will sucked back up into the eye of the storm), there is still a lot of high energy in the air. We are experiencing emotional highs and lows, as well as absorbing the emotions of others. This just creates a huge imbalance within us which magnifies our own inner troubles.
Remember, the Full Moon is all about illuminating the things hidden deep within as it governs our subconscious and higher self. Things hidden become revealed and highlighted.
Pisces is also a sign of supreme spirituality, being the most psychic and emphatic signs of the zodiac. This is the healer and the only one that understands you better than you do. This sign might live up in the clouds, but because of this, they can transmit the messages from source all the better. They might be closed off in the world in their little bubble, but that bubble serves as their catalyst to connect with the divine.
Spiritually I feel this is the strongest Moon of the entire year. Those whom are aware of their gifts will feel a sudden high, and if they can transmute the emotional roller coaster energy of this moon into psychic energy, then they can definitely swim into deeper depths of their spirituality and perhaps even unlock new gifts or expand the ones they have even further. This a great Moon to work on strengthening your pineal gland and to dive into OBE or their telepathic powers in their physic readings (yes, readers are telepathic - we are all, actually).
This is also a time where emphatic powers are on the rise. You will feel EVERYTHING. This is why I say to transmute the energy. Don't allow yourself to be pulled into the storm of others, or to react without trying to logically consider what is really going on. Thankfully we have our beloved Mercury currently retrograding in Virgo to slap up awake with a dose of reality so we can see the facts rather than get completely sucked away by the illusion that Pisces likes to parade around in. Leave it to Virgo to lift the veil. Hide from it, or face it and put those healing powers to work - that is your choice.
Creatively this Full Moon is off the charts as well. Pisces is the song writer who creates the lyrics which give you goosebumps because they hit that deep. Write, sing, paint... get into your creative groove and manifest something deep within. Not only will this serve as a positive outlet for dealing with the emotional stress circling around, but it will also impact others whom find inspiration with whatever you create because it will make them feel.
Before I get to the ritual, I want to give a quick few steps on how to ground yourself, because this is extremely vital when working with this particular ritual. When working with the higher realms, you can easily get sucked away from reality and lose track of what's really going on around you. Basically, you get high, and even more so with the nature of the moon, I feel that practicing some grounding rituals would prove to help cope with the extreme energies thrown about.
You can practice a quick grounding ritual at any time. This can simply be thoughts, prayer, holding a crystal or even walking barefoot on grass.
You want to be "rooted" with your feet firmly planted on the ground, feeling the earth beneath you and breathe deeply and slowly. You can include anything you like from here that helps you "come back" and feel content in your space. This will also help protect you from any negative outside influences. From others around you, and from the spiritual realms.
Contacting Your Spirit Guide
What is a spirit guide?
Disclaimer: I don't have it all figured out, but that is what I have observed from my own experiences.
A spirit guide is simply a representation of your Higher Self. This is you; a form of your consciousness. While yes, there are actual higher vibrational beings that assist us with our soul purpose in this life, they are still a part of us. Ever notice that little voice in your head, your conscious? That is your higher self, and spirit guides communicate with us in that sense. Each guide you have, is attuned to a different level of your consciousness - and yes, that includes the lower vibrational ones - spirit attachments and demonic forces. No one likes these guys, but they are simply teachers and mirrors of the shadow work we have to complete.
With that said, if you preform this ritual and find something you don't like - try to look beyond and understand the message it brings. This moon brings a powerful shift, and there might be clues on how you can get out of patterns and end that last bit of shadow work.
Ritual to Contact Your Spirit Guide
For this ritual, you will need:
You may add anything that makes you feel more connected to spirit. There really are no rules other than the candle and incorporating crystals (some don't even need crystals to get to that point as well).
Before starting this ritual you want to ensure that you have done a ritual to protect your space. You can simply do this by incorporating a grounding ritual or sage your space with the intent to protect and only attract higher vibrational guides. Anything that feels natural to you, do it. In the end, it's all about intent.
Sit down and have your candle at eyes length in front of you. Charge the candle, each one of your gemstones by holding into your hand and placing the intent that you want to contact your higher guides, and place them down.
Light the candle and place your hands over the crystals (or you can hold them in your hand). Feel their vibrations and allow the energy to seep into your energy field (I often feel my aura around hand expand at this point). All while doing this, stare into the candle and focus on the flame. You want to get into a almost trance like state. You want to only see the candle and feel your crystals, focusing on nothing else. Continue to do this until you feel you are at the state of being fully present and only with what is in front of you.
You can recite words or say a prayer as well. For example:
"I call onto my highest guides, you have always been a part of me, guiding and teaching me on this path, and I thank you for your service. I call upon you for guidance now and I thank you for your presence."
Like I said, there is no right or wrong way. Do whatever feels natural to you.
Remain like this until you see, hear, or envision something.Take note of the most subtle clue as well. I have seen my guides appear right before my mind's eye, and there were times where I didn't see anything to that extreme, but did feel guided during very troubling times.
When you are finished, blow out the candle and place it along with the stones under the light of the moon to empower your connection to spirit. Save the candle for future use when wanting to contact your guides again. You can also keep a journal and note each one of your experiences.
This ritual is not for everyone, but this moon is perfect to get back in touch with your spiritual self. So if you end up doing it, please let me know how it worked for you by commenting on this post, or sending me an email.
