The Libra Full Moon on April 5th invites us to reflect on how we choose to show up in our relationships.
It guides us to think about our interactions and how we can heal blocks, wounds, and traumas that prevent us from making deeper and more authentic relationships with others, ourselves, and the world around us.
Chiron, the asteroid known as the wounded healer, is very active under this Full Moon, and it invites us to find this healing not through fixing, but through acceptance. How can we accept all that we are? How can we accept the things that have happened? How can we see our wounds as portals to wisdom, strength, and greater love?
Chiron reminds us that wounding is part of our human experience, and rather than viewing our wounds as something that blocks, inhibits, or prevents us from doing things, our wounds can instead become fuel for a better and more purposeful life.
While the energies of the Full Moon will help guide us to this place, here is a ritual you can also try –
Libra Heart Healing Full Moon Ritual
You will need:
- Aura Cleansing tool of choice
- Pen and Paper
- Bowl of water
- Heart Drumming Cosmic Meditation
- Libra Full Moon Reading
1.) Start by setting an intention for this ritual. State out loud or in your mind that you would like to use this Full Moon ritual to help heal any wounds related to your relationships and open up your heart to love and connection. Feel free to adjust the intention to suit whatever you need. As you state your intention, light your candle.
2.) Cleanse your aura using your aura cleansing tool of choice. As you cleanse, feel free to recite the following –
“My aura is cleansed; my light shines bright. May any and all that is heavy leave my heart space tonight. My heart is light. My heart is pure. My heart is aligned with my authentic self. My physical body radiates health; my emotional body radiates joy; my spirit body radiates peace. Thank you.”
3.) Next, cleanse your surroundings and your ritual ingredients. As you do this, repeat –
“My space is cleansed. My space is protected. Only love and light radiate from this space.”
4.) Get nice and comfortable and begin your Heart Drumming meditation. This meditation will help activate, open, and bring healing to your heart center.
5.) After your mediation, take your pen and paper and choose one of the following prompts or create your own:
- Reflect on any past or present relationships that may be causing you pain or holding you back from opening your heart. Write down any thoughts or feelings that come up during this reflection.
- When it comes to interacting with others, what are your three biggest insecurities? Looking at these insecurities, where do you think they come from? How can you work to overcome them?
- Consider a difficult relationship in your life. Write them a letter, explaining everything you wish you could tell them.
- I can hear my angels and spirit guides saying to me…
Write as much as you want, but the deeper you go, the more breakthroughs you will likely have!
6.) After you have finished writing, ponder what has come up and any thoughts and feelings that may be stirring. Sit with them if need be. Taking your paper, you are now going to rip and burn it as a symbol of release. You can use your candle to do this. For safety purposes, you can leave a bowl of water nearby and drop the burnt papers inside the bowl when they get too hot to hold. You don’t need to burn the papers completely, remember this is just symbolic, so safety first!
7.) Once you are done burning the papers, take a moment to visualize a beautiful, healing light surrounding you and filling you with love and warmth. Imagine this light flowing into your heart chakra, healing any wounds and opening you up to love and connection.
8.) With this imagery nice and strong, express gratitude for any healing energy you have received, and for any positive relationship experiences in your life.
9.) Use your intuition to guide you through the Libra Full Moon Reading. Reflect on the guidance from the oracle you have chosen.
10.) To close the ritual, snuff out your candle. You may discard the burnt papers in whatever way is most suitable.
Full Moon Blessings!
