Full Moons offer us with the perfect time and place to let go of what’s been holding us back and make way for new. Here are a few easy Full Moon rituals you can try at home for cleansing your energies and taking in everything good that Luna can give you.

Deep Clean and Reorganize Your Home

As a Full Moon is a great time to open up to new energies, and get rid of old and negative ones, now is when you should finally deep clean your home! Think about cleaning out important energy centres like the space around your front door. This will bring new and effortless travelling opportunities. Wash the bathroom, floors, windows, throw away anything that you don’t have use for and reorganize your closest and drawers.

Let Go of Everything That’s Been Holding You Back

Maybe you weren’t one of the lucky ones this July and had troubles letting go of many things or people you weren’t ready for. The Sturgeon Full Moon is a great time to finally do this. Take a piece of paper and write down everything that you want to part with. Once you are done, fold the list and put it in a fire-safe bowl (iron or ceramic one). Light the edge of the list on fire and watch as all the pains that have been holding you back finally become dust in the wind. When the list has turned to ashes, bury them or flush them down the toilet and think about how you are releasing everything that no longer serves you.

Have a Relaxing Bath on the Full Moon August 2023

Another super easy Full Moon ritual you can perform for cleansing your mind is having a bath. Prepare the bath by soaking in Epsom salts, which will help to clear your aura. You can also add flower petals and your favourite essential oils. Surround yourself by candlelight, go in the tub and listen to a guided meditation or relaxing atmospheric music. Take in all the powerful energies coming from the Sturgeon Full Moon.

This Full Moon can also give you a new perspective on something that had troubled you in the past.
