On the night of the Scorpio Full Moon prepare yourself for this ceremony by clearing & quietening your self & your surrounds. When you are as close to stillness as you can be without being asleep, you are ready.
Create a sacred space & settle within it. Grind together herbs for an incense mix. Michelle Duke developed a blend especially for this Moon…
Grind your mix widdershins (unwinding the Sun) & chant the following as you do-
Open All & push me through
I grind & hold to Spirit true
Send me deep to wounds unhealed
A balm this journey shall reveal
Repeat this chant 3 or 9 times, light your charcoal & add your mix.
Lay flat on the ground, close your eyes & breath in the smoke. Let your journey begin at the mouth of a cave with a small stream of water flowing into it. Light a torch from the bright, big Moon & walk into the cave. Explore as long & as deep as you can, keeping your attention attuned to your senses & honouring them in your explorations. When you are ready, return by way of giving thanks to the cave & Grandmother Moon.
Surface & add more of your mix to the charcoal. Write down your experience & how you wish to bring your findings out into the mundane world, with the intent of healing to your deepest self.
When the charcoal has gone out, bury it along with the ashes in the earth under the light of the Moon.
