The first full moon of the year is on January 10th and it’s our first lunar eclipse in Cancer. This moon will help us in shifting into a better feel of what exactly must be done and how to get it done. Of course feelings and erratic moods will be felt by the majority, however that does not mean we have to make it our own. Here we must assess what is our feelings and our mood during this time. Quiet meditation will definitely help with this and basking in the moons light will help give us the vision and clarity we need for the year.
To clear away feelings that are not yours begin by asking, “is this mine”? If it is yours, you will feel a heaviness. When this feeling comes over you say, “I acknowledge it. What should I do to clear this”? Your intuition will guide you with what to do and trust it when it does. If you feel confusion as to what to do I suggest finding a clearing meditation on Youtube. For those who practice Reiki or know about Reiki find a Reiki meditation on Youtube as well. You can also do self Reiki on yourself to clear away the heaviness. If you do not feel any heaviness but instead feel lightness than this means it was never yours to begin with. At this moment of clearing say, “I send this back to the intender/sender with awareness, consciousness, forgiveness, and love”. Please, do say these clearing mantras aloud as this will break the vibration and bring it up into a higher frequency.
I know some will want to do water rituals because of the moon being in a water sign. I am here to say if you do instead fill a jar with water and make yourself some moon water to use in the near future. You will also want to charge your crystals, make yourself some comfort food, and spend time with those who make you feel safe and secure. If you feel you must do a water ritual than draw a warm bath with sea salt or Epsom salt. Visualize yourself clearing away all negative feelings you might be feeling at this time. Also, envision light being poured onto you and make sure you are smiling while doing this.
Lastly, for those of you who love to do candle magic, the colors to use would be silver or white. Silver will help with receiving visions and the white will help bring in purity and clarity. Let your candles burn undisturbed and set it somewhere safe. Here is a fun exercise to do during candle burns. Watch the flame and let it hypnotize you for it will give you visions. Once you do write them down, put the paper under your pillow, and set the intent to remember your dreams.
