You will need: pen & paper, Moon offering (such as flowers or baked goods or menstrual blood)
Find a quiet place where you can stand undisturbed under the light of the Full Moon.
Stand with your bare feet on the Earth, your knees slightly bent, your tail bone tucked under, your spine straight, your fingertips reaching down, your shoulders rolled back,. your crown being pulled up… Focus on your breath. Feel the Earth reaching up to hold you.
Let your mind’s eye open to the bright, illuminated light that is the Full Moon, draw it down & into you, filling you until you too are aglow.
Send your mind over the physical world in which you dwell. Sort through all that is connected to you on this earthly plane of existence & ask yourself:
Does this reflect who I am?
Is this a representation of how I feel/think/work?
Can I survive without this?
What can this do for me?
How is this great realm of existence better for having me connected to this?
Then decide what must stay & what needs to go. Write them down.
When you have your list of things to be rid of, appeal to Grandmother Moon for assistance in removing those things from your life. Tell Her what you are willing to do in support of this. Then present Her with an offering & give thanks.
Be sure to follow-up on your part in this process & present Grandmother Moon with an offering every night until She disappears for this cycle.
The Full Moon in Leo was a big time for many people that I have crossed paths with, & for myself it became a time to stand firmly in my Emotional Body & clear anything that was fogging it up. This clarity has been ground breaking. My Emotional Body is clear & crisp & now whispers to me, ‘No longer accept the external expectations of others.’ I am so grateful for this wisdom.
And now I look to this Virgo Disseminating Moon feeling my body, my flesh & blood, my fluids & filaments. I search my body for the answer to undying questions. I hold my body to this ever-present Earth. I learn from my body as it speaks to me. I learn from this Earth as She speaks to me… Their needs are not very different really.
As Lammas approaches I prepare to seek out the best of my harvest, the most loving & most joyous of all that has been growing around me. I will send their seeds with Lugh on His journey into the Shadow Realms where they will be blessed with the richest & deepest of love, & when they return to me with the Dawning after Yule, I will relish in their Spirit & the hope that they will bring to my future.
