Tomorrow (26th May 2021) we have a Full Moon in Sagittarius. Not just any Full Moon, but a Super Full Moon and a lunar eclipse! There are also a few retrogrades in play this week too which may make things feel a little pressured to say the least.
What does it all mean?
Let’s start with the moon… A Supermoon is when the moon appears larger in sky to us, and the energies are amplified because of this, so really good news if you’re planning any full moon rituals! The lunar eclipse is a really good opportunity to get back on track and let go of whatever is holding you back, be aware that what we let go of during an eclipse tends to be permanent. It’s worth giving some thought to, it could be anything from bad habit, unsuitable job, relationships you’ve outgrown, or limiting thoughts or behaviours. As with all full moons, letting go and endings are key here, the eclipse just really amplifies the power behind these transformations, and welcomes in a new chapter.
Main Themes of Sagittarius
- Travel, adventure and freedom
- Learning and study
- Exploring new paths
- Aspirations and goals
So setting intentions around any of these topics are likely to be energetically supported if you can clear the room in your life for the new things to come.
What will these retrogrades are likely to add to the pot this week?
Saturn Retrograde 23rd May -10th Oct 2021. Long term goals and life reviews , karmic reset and cycle completion (think back to May 2002 – what themes are repeating now), time for closure, look at your responsibilities & how you approach challenges.
Mercury Retrograde 29th May – 22nd June. Work on anything outstanding, tie up loose ends and finish projects. Save money, slow down, take time to reflect and avoid entering into any legal agreements. It probably goes without saying, but expect technology to break and communications to disrupted / misunderstood.
What should we do about all this…? A Super Full Moon Eclipse ritual of course!! We will keep it simple this month with a quick and easy one!
Easy Full Moon Ritual
- Prepare your environment and ensure it is as relaxing as it can be, include crystals, candles, incense, oils, crystals, fresh flowers and plants, blankets and cushions, pets(!) – whatever makes you feel relaxed, cosy and comfortable.
- Cleanse your own energy and environment using your cleansing tool of choice (more information coming soon on cleansing tools and techniques) in the interim see links for our recommended Cleansing Basics Kit and our Deluxe Cleansing Kit.
- Get comfortable and settle down with your journal, and note down some answers to the following:
Questions to ask yourself:
- What do I need to let go of?
- What will this create space for?
- What loose ends needs tying up?
- What am I aiming for during the second half of the year?
- Note down any actions you may want to take or avoid given the retrogrades mentioned above!
Crystals for this Full Moon…
Full Moons can be a great option for charging your crystals, however due to the energy of this eclipse we would NOT advise charging anything under this moon! Opinions are mixed on this, this is our recommendation, but as always, use your own intuition!
Whilst we don’t recommend charging your crystals under this moon, you can still use them during this ritual to boost your connection and energetic charge. Our recommendations would be one (or all!) of the following:
- Black Obsidian
- Lapis Lazuli
We will be in this Full Moon energy between 12.15pm on the 26th May up until 18.08pm Saturday 29th (UK time) and the ritual can be done at any point during these times. You have plenty of time to find the right crystals, we have a small selection of some of the above in our online shop – click here!
Depending on your personal astrological aspects this could either be a really uplifting and inspiring week, or, and I’m sorry to say, it might just be a bit horrendous… either way, new energy will come in as we move towards the weekend so use this time well, be it by taking inspired action, or resting, reflecting and looking after yourself with extra love this week. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
