The first Full Moon of 2021 falls in the sign of Leo on January 28/29. There is so much energy around this Full Moon, making it a little bit of wild card.
It may bring some surprising information to the surface, or things that you have been dealing with for the last few months may reach a culmination point, forcing you to take action.
The January Full Moon also coincides with the auspicious alignment of the Sun and Jupiter. This fortunate alignment brings abundance and an expansion of our gifts and talents.
It reminds us to look for the silver lining and to see the twinkling jewels of wisdom the Universe has to offer, even if we are wading through a dark patch.
With all this cosmic energy on offer, it will be important to cleanse, recharge, and protect our own personal energy field.
Here is a ritual to guide you-
Leo Full Moon Cleansing Ritual
This ritual is best done between January 26-February 2, 2021
You will need:
- Cleansing tool of choice (eg. herb sticks, bells, selenite wand, etc.)
- Chakra Reset Meditation
- Empty glass jar
- Cup/jug water (enough to fill the jar)
- 10 strips of paper and a pen
- Leo Full Moon Reading (optional)
1.) Start by cleansing your aura, then your surroundings and ritual ingredients. As you cleanse your aura, feel free to recite the following-
“It is time to release the past and to let go of all the heavy weight that has kept me stuck, trapped, or playing small. May it be released now. I reclaim my power. I reclaim my true self. I call back all the parts of myself that have been lost along the way. May they return to me now. I am restored. I am whole. I am in my fullest power. I am comfortable in my own skin. I love myself. I love myself.”
As you cleanse your surroundings and ritual ingredients, feel free to recite the following-
“The love that lives within me and flows around me, fills this space with calm, with peace, and with tranquility. My space is protected by my love. These ritual ingredients are protected by my love. I am safe to be myself in this space, for only love dwells here.”
2.) Get in a comfortable position and start your Chakra Reset Meditation. This 15-minute meditation will help you to recharge, realign, and strengthen your energetic body.
3.) Once your meditation is complete, take your 10 strips of paper and write down something you would like to release on each strip of paper. Once done, place the strips into your glass jar.
4.) Take your jug/cup of water and pour it over the top of your strips of paper. As you do, recite the following-
“As this water flows, it soaks up the energies of these 10 things that I wish to release. It acts as a cleanser, a shifter, and a changer. It helps to absorb and transmute any negativity, any thought patterns that keep me stuck, and anything that is no longer aligned with my highest good. Thank you.”
5.) Once all the water is in the jar, secure the lid and give it a good shake. As you shake, repeat ten times-
“As I shake, I clear the way, I release, I let go, I surrender.”
If you would like to say a prayer, chant, or make an offering to your spirit guides/Universe you can also do that here.
7.) Leave your jar out under the light of the Full Moon overnight.
8.) If using, do your Leo Full Moon Reading. This reading is designed to strengthen your intuitive muscles and offer guidance.
9.) In the morning, discard the water outside and bury any papers in the ground. You can also dispose of the papers in the recycling if you cannot bury them.
Your ritual is complete! Happy Full Moon!
