The Full Moon has always been a mystical and mysterious light throughout history. It's connections to multiple goddesses in different theologies, the way it can seem to make our animals and kiddos act a little out of sorts, the Full Moon definitely sparks curiosity in all of us.
If you've never worked with the energy of the Full Moon, but have an awareness about it (i.e. you've seen your friends post about charging their crystals) you're in the right place. This is a basic way to work alongside the energy of the Full Moon and support you in celebrating and manifesting your goals.
FULL MOON ENERGY - FRUITION
The Full Moon is all about bringing your intentions into your reality. Allow. Breathe. Rest. Everything that you have been focused on is in the midst of Manifestation. You have taken all the steps already, and this is the time to allow them to come to fruition. You don't need to create an elaborate ritual (although by all means do if that's your jam) to tap into this energy. This is a great time to journal, turn inward, and sit with your inner knowing for a while. We have some great journal questions for you at the bottom of this article.
FULL MOON RITUALS
We have said it time and again, but things don't have to look a certain way. Your practice, is your practice, and you can't do it wrong. That being said, we wanted to share a few things that you can include in your Ritual either together, or individually, that will help you to connect deeper with Full Moon Energy, and with yourself
CHARGE YOUR CRYSTALS: If you have crystals, or any other special items/tools you'd like to infuse with Full Moon Energy, now is a great time to put them in a window that will be showered in Moonlight through the night. Be mindful, that certain full moons (should there be any eclipses) are not suited for charging crystals, but more often than not, this is a safe and simple practice you can include.
MAKE MOON WATER: Making moon water is very similar to charging crystals. Find a Mason Jar or other similar vessel, fill it with water, and set it with your charging crystals, so that it can be bathed in the moonlight. You can use this energy infused water to make a natural body spray, or natural air freshener for your home.
MEDITATION: The Full Moon is a wonderful time to go within and learn more about yourself. One of the best ways to do this is through meditation. We have a free Renewing Affirmation Meditation here on our blog, and a number of longer Meditations inside The Sacred Circle. Give yourself the space to breathe and unwind in meditation.
CLEANSING RITUAL BATH: If you are lucky enough to have a bathtub under a window that the moonlight shines on, then you will definitely want to take a cleansing bath! The window and moonlight aren't a must, but if you end up wanting to do a cleansing bath, we recommend using these tools. Make it your own and enjoy the soak!

CLEANSE YOUR SPACE: Physically cleaning (to an extent) can be quite relaxing to some, and stressful to others. The Full Moon moreso calls on the energy of spiritual cleanse. We have a great resource here on the blog to Cleanse your Space. Remember that the things you do with Full Moon don't need to be elaborate.
LIGHT A CANDLE: It really can be as simple as lighting a candle and expressing your gratitude. Candles are a lovely way to celebrate the light of the Full Moon and to celebrate your Manifestations. Make sure that if you do choose to light a candle (or more) that they are safely lit, and aren't going to accidentally cause a fire.
GET CREATIVE: If you like getting crafty, or want to learn to be more creative, this is a perfect opportunity to explore that! Paint something. Write a poem. Find a Pinterest craft that you have been wanting to make! (Tip: We love heading to the Dollar Tree for our craft supplies!)
BODY LOVE: Move your body lovingly, in a way that feels good for you. Whether that's Yoga, (check out our Audio Flows inside The Sacred Circle) Belly Dancing, Walking, or hitting the Gym, moving your body is a surefire way to tap into your Feminine energy.
OIL BLEND: Get intentional by creating a special oil blend with crystals, herbs, and essential oils! We love our Moonlight Manifest Blend in our Apothecary, but you can get creative and put something together on your own!
JOURNAL & VISUALIZE: As mentioned before, this is a wonderful time to celebrate what you have manifested and to express gratitude.
FULL MOON INVOCATION
Reminding you that your Full Moon Practice can be as simple or elaborate as you'd like, we found a beautiful invocation that lends to Full Moon Energy. You can incorporate this into a Meditation, Yoga Practice, Candle Intentions, really, any of the practices we have listed above.
FULL MOON JOURNAL PROMPTS
Taking time to reflect and shine light on what you desire and what you desire to change is a beautiful practice to work together with Full Moon Energy.
What am I most Grateful for, right now, in this moment?
What actions can I take (or not take) to help cultivate even more gratitude?
What am I ready to acknowledge, support, and realize within myself?
What else can I choose to be grateful for, even though it may feel strange or counterintuitive?
How can I serve more of this gratitude to myself and to others?
How can I celebrate my body even more?
How can I celebrate my mind even more?
How can I celebrate my spirit even more?
What Blessings have come into my life since I set my last intentions?
We hope that you have a beautiful time connecting with the Energy of The Full Moon, and if you're ready to dive into your journey even more, we would love to have you Join Usinside The Sacred Circle.
