SUMMER SOLSTICE Full Moon Ritual For Your Soul

This year’s summer solstice coincides with a powerful full moon in Capricorn, offering a unique opportunity to blend the themes of illumination, growth, and manifestation with the grounding, ambitious energy of Capricorn. This ritual is designed to help you harness this potent combination for personal growth and transformation.

Preparation:

  • Find a Quiet Space: Choose a serene outdoor location or a peaceful indoor spot where you can connect with nature and the moon’s energy.
  • Gather Your Tools: You’ll need a journal, a pen, a candle, a small bowl of water, fresh flowers, a crystal (such as citrine or moonstone) to represent the sun and moon’s energy, and your tarot deck.

Step-by-Step Ritual:

    1. Grounding Meditation:

      • Sit comfortably and close your eyes.
      • Take a few deep breaths, feeling the earth beneath you.
      • Visualize roots growing from your feet into the ground, anchoring you to the earth.
    2. Sun and Moon Visualization:

      • Light the candle to symbolize the combined energy of the sun and moon.
      • Imagine the sun’s rays and the moon’s glow filling your body with light and warmth.
      • Feel this dual energy revitalizing you, bringing clarity, focus, and grounding.
    3. Journaling Reflection:

      • Reflect on the past six months. Write down any achievements, lessons learned, and challenges overcome.
      • Consider how these experiences have shaped your journey and what they’ve taught you about yourself.
    4. Setting Intentions:

      • On a fresh page, write down your intentions for the next six months.
      • Focus on what you want to manifest, the qualities you wish to embody, and the goals you aim to achieve.
      • Be specific and positive, using present tense as if these intentions are already reality.
    5. Water Blessing:

      • Hold the bowl of water in your hands and speak your intentions into it.
      • Imagine the water absorbing the energy of your words and intentions.
      • Sprinkle some flowers into the water as a symbol of growth and blossoming.
    6. Affirmation and Crystal Charge:

      • Hold the crystal in your hand and recite a personal affirmation that aligns with your intentions.
      • Place the crystal in the moonlight (or near the candle if indoors) to charge it with the solstice and full moon energy.
    7. Closing Gratitude:

      • Express gratitude for the combined light of the sun and moon, and the opportunity for growth.
      • Blow out the candle, symbolizing the integration of your intentions into your life.
    8. Integration:

      • Pour the blessed water into the earth, a plant, or your garden, symbolizing the nurturing of your intentions.
      • Carry the charged crystal with you or place it on your altar as a reminder of your commitments.
