9 Magical Full Moon Rituals for Manifestation and Energy Cleansing

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

Every month the universe presents us with the arrival of the full moon, which invites us to take a minute and reflect on what's working (or not) in our lives - whether that's in relation to work, relationships or health - and proceed with change if necessary. 

A simple way to take advantage of this astrological event is by incorporating full moon rituals into your daily routine. Since full moons are all about endings, these rituals can be a great way to evaluate where you're at, assess each situation, cleanse your life and recharge your energy levels. Learn more about why it's important to incorporate rituals for the Full Moon into your daily routine. Here are nine rituals that are a cinch to adopt.

1. Clear Some Space

The best starting point is to cleanse the space around you and create a quiet place that will allow you to gather your thoughts. Clear away any items that don't serve a purpose anymore, and only keep your favorite items close by. This could be as simple as setting up your bedside table with a candle and book.

2. Meditation

Now that your physical space is clean and quiet, it's important to centre your thoughts as well. Find a nice place to sit still and take deep breaths as you reflect on what went right this month, as well as any goals you didn't quite achieve. Be with your thoughts for as long as you need.

While you're in the process of reflection, take a pen and begin to list down all the things in life that make you feel grateful. They can be as simple as your comfy bed (and bed linen!), your dog or your best friend. The Shadow Work Journal is perfect for this, also. The more you write, the more you are attracting positivity from the universe.

Smudging sage is an ancient practice that is said to purify and drive out negative energy from your space. Start by opening all the windows and doors in your house. Then, light your smudge stick and slowly make your way through the spaces you'd like to cleanse. You can also use the stick to purify yourself by directing the smoke around your body, taking deep breaths in throughout.

5. Light a Flame 

Another way to take control of your thoughts and feelings during the full moon is to light your favorite candle. Candle Colors come into play here. For example, a white candle can signify healing and purity, while green represents wealth and good luck. If there's a negative thought you'd like to let free, write it down and set it alight (safely, of course).

6. Charge Your Crystals

Now is the ideal time to gather any crystals you have and lay them out to be recharged by the full moon's light. If you can't do it outside, rest them on your window sill or any place under the light of the moon. Not into crystals? Your jewellery and personal items can also be recharged by the full moon.

7. Take a Moon Bath

Not that you needed an excuse, but the full moon is the perfect time to pamper yourself with a relaxing bath. Grab a few of your candles, brew a cup of tea, and relax in the bubbles. Top tip: since our bodies are thought to be best at absorbing minerals during this phase, add in some Himalayan pink salt (renowned for its healing properties). 

8. Dance to Release Energy

The full moon brings with it a wave of energy, thoughts and emotions. A fun way to (literally) shake it off is to get up and move around. Whether you're out under the full moon or jumping around your living room, you're sure to release some of that energy build-up from the past month.

9. Celebrate

This might be the best part of the full moon - celebrating! You've taken time to reflect, noting down what you were able to manifest this month. Now's the time to celebrate with whatever makes you happiest. A favourite dinner spot and a glass of wine sounds about right.

In conclusion

The full moon is always an incredibly potent time for magic, divination and spiritual practices of all kinds. Take advantage of Luna’s culminating energy by performing any of these easy full moon spells and rituals (blog coming soon). You don’t need expensive tools or accessories in order to make your ritual a powerful one. In fact, it’s often the simplest rituals that invite the most love and abundance into your life.
