Doing a full moon ritual on the full moon can significantly help your life to run more smoothly.
Our full moon is one of the most powerful tools the Universe has ever given us, so why not take advantage of it to the fullest extent possible?
A full moon ritual can be a way to harness any energy of the full moon that you need and can bring positive change in your life.
The full moon has been associated with a variety of energies and influences, and there are several ways in which we can take advantage of these energies to improve our lives.
One of the main energies of the full moon is its ability to bring things to light and bring clarity to our thoughts and emotions. This makes it a good time to reflect on our experiences, set intentions, and make important decisions.
The full moon can also bring a sense of release and closure, making it a good time to let go of things that no longer serve us. This can be physical items, negative thoughts and emotions, or any other things that hold us back.
The full moon can also bring a sense of increased intuition and creativity. This makes it a good time to engage in activities that allow you to tap into your inner voice and express your creativity.
In general, the full moon is a time of transformation and change, and we can take advantage of this energy by setting goals and working towards them, by engaging in self-care and self-reflection, and by connecting with nature.
You can implement as many full moon rituals as you want, however, it’s important to remember that the effectiveness of these rituals depends on the individual’s consistency and commitment to them. It can also be a good idea to track the changes in your life and happiness over time to see if the rituals are having a positive impact.
A full moon occurs with regularity every 29.5 days, 14 days after the appearance of a new moon. It is known to have an effect on people but can vary from person to person. Being aware of this knowledge, we can use them in a positive way.
The full moon phase lasts for approximately three days, starting from the moment the moon is fully illuminated by the sun to the moment it is no longer fully illuminated. The exact duration of the full moon phase may vary slightly due to the elliptical shape of the moon’s orbit around the Earth.
The full moon calendar will give the dates, Perth, Australia, and which astrology sign it falls in.
Allow yourself to tap into any or all of the energy the full moon has to offer by practicing any of the following full moon rituals.
Full Moon Ritual Information
The more energy you put into it each month the more you will receive back.
Setting aside time each month on the full moon to reflect on your goals and intentions before performing a full moon ritual can be an important step in the preparation process.
This can help you get clear on what you want to achieve through the ritual and ensure that your intentions are aligned with your overall goals and desires.
Reflecting on your progress since the new moon can also be helpful in identifying areas where you may need extra support or guidance.
It’s also important to remember that rituals can be a powerful tool for personal growth and change, but they are not a substitute for consistent hard work and effort toward your goals. The ritual can be a way to align your energy and focus, but it’s important to continue working towards your goals in the days and weeks following the full moon.
If you need help with anything just take a walk or do some meditation and you may be surprised by what reveals itself.
Make sure you focus on what you want with positive statements and affirming language, such as “I am” and not “I need” or “I want”. Sometimes the way we say things the proper way can be challenging, and when it’s said wrongly we are actually manifesting what we don’t want.
Always allow yourself to think big and bold and always for your highest good. It’s best to keep things clear and concise and no more than ten items. Don’t overcomplicate them but you can be centered around the same subject or you can focus on different areas.
The most potent time to perform rituals on a full moon is during the exact moment of the full moon and 6 hours before or after. It’s not always possible to perform a ritual at this time but the closer to this time the better.
It’s important to note that the exact timing of the ritual may not be as important as the intention and focus that you bring to it. The most important thing is that you feel ready, focused, and aligned with your intention during the full moon ritual.
Also, it’s worth noting that since the full moon occurs at different times depending on time zones, it’s important to consult a lunar calendar to determine the exact time of the full moon for your location.
Additionally, It’s important to take into account that the energy of the full moon can vary depending on the astrological sign it’s in and the aspects it makes with other planets. This could add or subtract potency to the ritual.

Reflecting on personal growth during the full moon can be beneficial because the full moon is associated with completion, release, and renewal. This makes it an ideal time to reflect on what you have accomplished, what you have learned, and what you need to let go of in order to move forward in your personal growth journey.
When you are ready in your area, set an intention for your reflection. This could be something like, “I want to reflect on my personal growth and learn from my experiences.”
Reflect on your experiences in the past month. Think about what you have learned, what challenges you have faced, and what opportunities you have taken advantage of.
Acknowledge your growth and all that you have accomplished.
Celebrate your successes, no matter how small they may seem.
Think about where you want to go in the future and what steps you need to take to get there. Write down your goals and make a plan to achieve them.
Once you have reflected, it’s time to release anything that no longer serves you. Let go of negative thoughts, fears, and old patterns.
This simple yet powerful exercise can help you gain insight into your personal growth, identify areas for improvement, and set goals for the future.
A full moon breathwork visualization ritual involves using controlled breathing and visualization techniques to connect with the energy of the full moon and promote self-discovery, healing, and growth.
While sitting relaxed, put one hand on your heart and the other on your abdomen begin your breathwork visualization by closing your eyes and begin focusing on your breath, breathing deeply and slowly, allowing your breath to slow down and become more controlled.
As you breathe, visualize light and energy flowing into your body, filling you with a sense of peace and well-being. You may also visualize a specific issue or concern you hope to address or a desire you wish to manifest, and imagine the light and energy of the full moon amplifying your intention.
As you continue to breathe deeply and focus on your visualization, you may notice thoughts, emotions, or physical sensations arise. Simply observe them without judgment and continue to focus on your breath and visualization.
When you feel ready, slowly open your eyes and take a deep breath, thanking yourself for taking the time to connect with the full moon and engage in your breathwork visualization.
Crystal Cleansing and Charging
A full moon ritual involves cleansing and charging your crystals under the moonlight. Crystals are believed to hold and store energy, and a full moon is a powerful time to release negative energy and recharge your crystals with positive, healing energy.
To begin, gather your items such as crystals, a bowl of water/salt water or a smudge stick.
Start by cleansing your crystals of any negative energy or impurities by holding them under running water, burying them in salt or earth, or smudging them with sage or palo santo. You can also use a singing bowl or other tool to create sound vibrations to help release any negative energy.
Please Note: Before any water cleansing, ensure that only water-safe crystals are used. Some crystals can’t withstand water and can be in the water but not in long lengths of time or salt water. Exposure to water can dissolve, crack, or become discoloured crystals. Check to see if your crystals are safe by The Mohs Hardness Scale.
After cleansing your crystals, you will charge them with positive, healing energy by placing them under the light of the full moon. You can place them outside, on a windowsill, or on a plate or dish, depending on your preference and the type of crystal (I use selenite).
As your crystals charge under the full moon, focus on your intention for the ritual, such as promoting healing, love, or peace in your life. Visualize light and energy flowing into your crystals, filling them with positive energy and amplifying their healing properties.
Conclude this ritual by thanking yourself for connecting with the full moon.
Crystals should be left in the moonlight for a minimum of 4 hours.
A full moon love ritual involves focusing on love, relationships, and personal connections under the full moon.
Once sitting in your comfortable area and feeling relaxed, set your intention for the ritual by focusing on what you hope to release, heal, or manifest in relation to love and relationships. This could be a specific issue or concern, or simply a desire to connect with the full moon’s energy and focus on promoting love in your life. You can write your intention down in your journal or meditate on it to clarify your focus.
After setting your intention, you should engage in practices that promote love and positivity, such as meditation, affirmations, visualization, or sending love and positive energy to yourself and others. Take the time to focus on love and relationships, and express gratitude for the love you have in your life.
As you engage in your practices, visualize light and energy flowing into your life, filling you with a sense of peace and well-being. Express gratitude for the energy and guidance you receive from the full moon, and focus on love and relationships until you feel complete.
A full moon self-love ritual involves taking time for self-reflection and self-care under the light of the full moon to promote self-love and healing.
When feeling relaxed in your space, set your intention for the ritual by focusing on what you hope to release, heal, or manifest in relation to self-love. This could be a specific issue or concern, or simply a desire to connect with the full moon’s energy and focus on self-care. You can write your intention down in your journal or meditate on it to clarify your focus.
After setting your intention, engage in self-care practices that speak to you, such as a relaxing bath, meditation, journaling, or a skincare routine. Take the time to focus on your well-being and show yourself love and kindness.
As you engage in your self-care practices, visualize light and energy flowing into your body and filling you with a sense of peace and well-being. Express gratitude for the energy and guidance you receive from the full moon, and focus on your self-care and self-love until you feel complete.
Full Moon Dancing
A full moon dancing ritual involves dancing under the light of the full moon to connect with its energy and celebrate the cycles of life. The ritual involves several steps to create a sacred space, set your intention, and dance.
Start by setting your intention for the ritual by focusing on what you hope to release, heal, or manifest. This could be a specific issue or concern, or simply a desire to connect with the full moon’s energy. You can write your intention down in your journal or meditate on it to clarify your focus.
After setting your intention, you will begin to dance, allowing yourself to be guided by the energy of the full moon and the music or rhythm that speaks to you. Let your body move freely, expressing your emotions and letting go of any tension or stress.
As you dance, visualize light and energy flowing into your body and filling you with a sense of peace and well-being. Express gratitude for the energy and guidance you receive from the full moon, and continue to dance until you feel complete.
Slowly bring your dance to a close and take a deep breath, thanking yourself for the time you spent connecting with the full moon.
Full Moon Sound Healing
A full moon ritual utilizes sound to connect with the energy of the full moon and promote physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. The ritual involves several steps to create a peaceful and focused atmosphere, set your intention, and make sound.
In your quiet space make sure you have a singing bowl, chimes or drums for making sounds.
Set your intention for the ritual by focusing on what you hope to release, heal, or manifest. You can write your intention down in your journal or meditate on it to clarify your focus.
After setting your intention, you will begin making sound with your instruments or voice, allowing the vibration to fill the room and your body. Focus on your intention and let the sound wash over you, promoting relaxation and healing. As you continue to make sound, allow yourself to fully relax and let go of any tension or stress.
You can also visualize light and energy flowing into your body and filling you with a sense of peace and well-being as you make sound. Express gratitude for the healing energy you have received, and take a few moments to simply be still and silent.
When you feel ready to end the full moon ritual slowly bring the sound making to a stop and take a deep breath. Thank yourself for taking the time to heal and focus on your well-being.
This is a practice of doing tarot readings during the full moon, to gain insight and guidance on personal growth, manifestation, and intention setting.
A full moon oracle card reading ritual is a way to tap into the energy of the full moon to gain insight and guidance for the upcoming month.
You can either get a card reading done by AngelCardReadingsbyIvonne or do it yourself.
To perform this full moon ritual yourself, you will need an oracle card deck of your choice and a comfortable place to sit and can focus on your tarot reading. Gather your tarot deck, journal, and any other tools you may need.
Next, you will set your intention for the reading by focusing on what you hope to gain insight or understanding about. Feel free to ask anything, it doesn’t have to be specific. You can write your intention down in your journal to clarify your focus.
After setting your intention, you will shuffle your tarot deck and focus on your intention as you do so. This helps to infuse the cards with your energy and create a connection with the full moon. You can then choose the number of cards you want to use for your reading and lay them out in a specific spread or in any way that feels right to you.
As you look at each card, reflect on the symbols and messages they contain, and write down any insights or feelings that come to you. You can also use your intuition to interpret the cards and connect with the full moon’s energy.
Finally, take a moment to reflect on the reading, allowing the messages and insights to sink in. Express gratitude for the guidance and insights you received, and put your journal and tarot deck away.

The full moon ritual of performing spells is a powerful practice that has been used for centuries to manifest desired changes in one’s life.
Women have been concocting a variety of magical mixtures and incantations to draw in whatever we need and to offer ourselves the highest potential for accomplishment and joy. Magic can help us recognize the beauty and secrets that encircle us in our everyday lives.
The full moon is a prime time for spells for involving prophecy, protection, divination, and any undertaking that requires extra power, like employment seeking or treating critical health conditions.
Also, NEVER use spells and rituals to harm anyone or to control others’ free will.
This is an example of a potent and successful spell that is easy and straightforward to cast.
When It’s Time To Say Goodbye Spell
Sometimes, we know that the relationship is over, but can’t seem to let go.
This spell will help heal an aching heart and get you back on track in no time.
Shower or take a bath and then dress in your favourite clothes.
Put on a bit of make-up, and see yourself in front of your mirror.
Lay the items of Enchantment out on a flat surface in front of you.
Light the candles, and sprinkle some of the rosemary and chamomile around you.
Relax by taking a few deep breaths.
Hold the egg lightly in one hand and repeat this chant:
“I now let go of all unhappiness and heartache, I receive love from the universe, and I deserve love and inner peace.”
As you look in the mirror, roll the egg lightly over your forehead and imagine sending all negative thoughts and feelings into it.
Now throw the egg into the garbage.
It is important to note that while this practice can be incredibly effective, it is essential to ensure that the spell and intention are carefully crafted, especially if you start creating your own.

These rituals often involve gathering with fellow practitioners to honour the full moon and its associated energies.
Full moon rituals usually consist of:

Planting and Tending to Crops or Gardens
Gardening by the light of the full moon has been a traditional practice for many cultures, with the belief that it can bring good luck and positive energy to the crops.
Some gardeners believe that the increased light from the full moon helps to stimulate plant growth, while others plant by the full moon as a spiritual or superstitious ritual.
However, there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that gardening during a full moon has any effect on crop growth or yield.
Plan your garden or crops in accordance with the lunar calendar. For this full moon ritual, it’s best to plant crops that bear fruit above ground, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and melons. It’s also a good time to plant flowers, herbs, and trees.
Basil and other herbs are believed to bring positive energy and good luck. Flowers like marigolds are thought to promote happiness and relaxation.
Planting is up to your personal preference and your local growing conditions.
Regardless, gardening is a peaceful and rewarding activity that can be enjoyed under the light of the full moon or during any other time of the day.
