Just as The Wheel turns, the moon cycles through her phases. Tomorrow, she enters Libra as a full moon which makes it a great time to do some manifesting. In general, full moons symbolize the time where we start to see the beginnings of our intentions set during the new moon come to life. If you’re familiar with moon magick, this process is something you’re well aware of. But for all of you new witches, allow us to elaborate.
The new or “dark” moon marks the beginning of the moon’s phase cycle. Since it signals the start of something new, many witches use the energy of the new moon to plant the seeds of their intentions and shake off any extra baggage that may be holding them back. Basically -- let go and start growing!
When the full moon makes her appearance, that’s your time to shine! All the seeds of intention that you planted during the new moon have sprouted, allowing you to see the rewards of your hard work. When you harness the energy of the full moon, it will amplify your manifestation power so that your intentions continue to flourish.
Today, we’re sharing a magickal brew that you can stir up in your own kitchen to honor the full moon and enhance the success of your manifestations. If you don’t have all of the ingredients on hand, have no fear! Shoot us an email and we’ll happily provide you with some alternative ingredients that can be used to fit your brew.
Orange Peels from 3 Oranges
½ oz (14 grams) Lemon Balm (fresh or dried)
1 inch (roughly 3cm) Piece of Ginger Root
1 Tablespoon (roughly 14 grams) Sugar
Add to a pot and fill with water. Place the pot on your stove and heat the water until it comes to a slow simmer.
Take a moment to center your focus on the brew, reflecting on the intentions that were planted during the new moon. Feel the warmth of your brew encompassing you, shining a bright light on your intentions and bringing them to full bloom.
Allow your brew to simmer uncovered throughout the day. Set a timer to check back on the brew every hour to make sure the water level hasn’t gotten too low. If the water level starts to dip, add a little more water to the brew to prevent the ingredients from burning.
That night, take your brew outside and offer it to the moon by burying the contents (minus the pot!) under the moonlight. Take a moment to meditate with the full moon, thanking her for her abundant energy! Now let magick do its thing.
It’s important to look for your manifestations sprouting in the smallest of places so that your energy can tend to its growth. Something such as a utility bill being cheaper than anticipated is a perfect example of abundance manifesting in your life. Make sure you thank the moon for her blessings (in whatever form they come in!) and tend to the sprout so that it can grow into something larger and more bountiful throughout the year. Shine on, witchlings 🌕
