The Aries Full Moon falls on October 1st, 2020, and is the first of two Full Moons for the month, setting up a theme of release and purging.
Aries rules over the head and so under this fiery Aries Full Moon on October 1st, we are going to bring soothing energy to this part of our body.
Like all Full Moons, this is also an opportunity to release and let go of things that are holding you back or making you feel restricted in your life.
Allow this ritual to be your guide, but feel free to edit and adjust it according to your own needs.
Aries Full Moon Ritual 2020
This ritual is best done between September 28-October 5, 2020
You will need:
- Aura cleansing tool of choice
- October Cosmic Meditation 2020
- Heatpack or hot towel/compress
- Bowl of saltwater or seawater
- Hair Mask or DIY Hair Oil (optional)
- Aries Full Moon Reading (optional)
For the DIY Hair Oil blend any vegetable oil with a few drops of your favorite essential oil– feel free to adjust this however you see fit.
1.) Start by cleansing your aura, and then your surroundings and ritual ingredients. As you cleanse your aura free to recite the following-
“Under the light of the October Full Moon, I ask to be cleansed, I ask to be free, I ask for release from all that plagues me. I ask for a clear mind. I ask for a clear heart. I ask for help wading through the dark. I am now cleansed. I am now renewed. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
As you cleanse your surroundings feel free to recite the following (be sure to have a window or door open so any negative energy can escape)-
“Under the light of the October Full Moon, I cleanse and release from this space all that no longer serves. I cleanse and release any energies that block my mind and blur my heart. I ask all energies that are no longer aligned with my highest good to leave this space now. My space is lighter, my space is cleansed. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
2.) Have your bowl of saltwater next to you. Take your hot compress or hot towel and place it over your forehead. Lay down and start the October Cosmic Meditation.
3.) After the meditation, remove the compress and gently begin massaging your forehead. Massage your temples in a circular motion. Drum your fingers across your forehead. Run your hands through your hair, massaging your scalp with the hair oil if using. Aim to massage this area for 5-10 minutes.
4.) While the hair oil is working its magic and your scalp and forehead is nicely massaged, take your pen and paper and write down 5-10 things you would like to release and let go of in your life.
5.) Hold what you have written in both hands and recite the following slowly and with meaning –
“I release the fears of yesterday and any obstacles that are holding me back. I forgive and let go of the past and know that I no longer need to carry it with me. I wash away my fears and replace them with the wisdom of my higher self. My higher self wisdom now flows through me and leads me at every turn. Nothing is impossible. I can do anything.”
6.) Take your paper and begin ripping it into shreds. Once it’s all in little pieces place it into the bowl of salt water. Leave it there overnight and discard in the morning.
If you were using a hair mask please follow the package directions. For the DIY mask, feel free to leave it in on for as long as comfortable.
7.) Follow up with the Aries Full Moon Reading if using.
Happy Full Moon!
