Full Virgo Moon Ritual – Feb. 27th
Purification – Cleansing – Healing
Tonight’s ritual was Drawing Down the Moon, crafted to honor the mother aspect of the triple goddess.
The altar is decorated with fruit, pink and red flowers, white and red candles. One large pillar candle is anointed with Full Moon oil and rolled in silver glitter.
The affirmation is “I am the power of the moon.”
You’ll see in the photos I wrote out affirmations and things that needed to be released and burned them among pink and white candles.
I’ll leave the fruit outside tonight as an offering to the moon.
When I pulled cards tonight, I asked only that they show us or guide us to what needed to be released so we could become our best selves.
Virgo is about cleansing, purification and healing.
The cards revealed a celebration of how far you’ve come, an urging to go higher and become more conscious, and a bolt of change that’s about to strike.
It’s time to get uncomfortable and LOVE it.
1 – Six of Wands – Success, public recognition, progress, self-confidence
The Six of Wands appears when you have reached an important milestone or achieved a significant goal, and you are confident, self-assured, and successful.
Yes, there were challenges along the way, but you overcame them by concentrating your energies on the one target. This card suggests that not only have you achieved your goals, but you are also receiving public acknowledgement for your efforts. It may be just a pat on the back, but this attention is a big boost to your confidence and gives you the strength to continue your endeavours.
The Six of Wands also encourages you to put yourself out there and be proud of what you achieved. Shout your successes from the rooftop and set it all out there for others to see and cheer you on. Be open to receiving love and support from your biggest cheerleaders, who are energised by seeing you succeed. Now is your time to shine.
This card is encouragement to believe in who you are and your accomplishments. Have faith in what you’ve done and how others will receive it. Do not let fear or guilt stand in the way of your success. Hold your head high and know you‘re worthy of admiration.
But keep in mind that you’re not quite at the finish line. You still have some way to go and challenges may sit on the path ahead. But know you have the support of those around you and they are here to back you 100%.
2 – Judgement – Judgement, rebirth, inner calling, absolution
This card is calling you to rise up and embrace a higher level of consciousness for the service of your Highest Good. You are experiencing a spiritual awakening and realising that you are destined for so much more. This is your cosmic up-leveling.
You hear the call and are ready to act. Tune in to a higher frequency. Let go of your old self and step into this newest version of who you really are.
The Judgement card often indicates that you need to make a life-changing decision, and this decision requires a blend of intuition and intellect. You may be at a crossroads, aware that any choice you make will bring a significant change with long-lasting effects. Tune in to your Higher Self, trust your judgement and know you are on the right path. If you still need clarity on the situation, look to your past and life lessons to guide you.
Judgement pops up in a Tarot reading when you are close to reaching a significant stage in your journey. You have reviewed and evaluated your past experiences and have learned from them. All the pieces of the puzzle of your life are finally coming together to form one, unified picture of your life story.
This integration has healed deep wounds, and you are now able to put the past behind you. You have found your absolution, having cleared any wrongdoings or regrets, and releasing any guilt or sadness about the past. This purging process will leave you refreshed and ready to take on any new challenges.
3 – The Tower – Sudden change, upheaval, chaos, revelation, awakening
When the Tower card appears, expect the unexpected: change, upheaval, destruction and chaos. There’s no escaping it. Change is here to tear things up, create chaos and destroy everything in its path (but trust me, it’s for your Highest Good).
Just when you think you’re safe and comfortable, a Tower moment hits and throws you for a loop. A lightning bolt of clarity and insight cuts through the lies and illusions you have been telling yourself, and now the truth comes to light. Your world may come crashing down before you, in ways you could never have imagined as you realise that you have been building your life on unstable foundations – false assumptions, mistruths, illusions, blatant lies, and so on.
Everything you thought to be true has turned on its head. You are now questioning what is real and what is not, what you can rely upon and what you cannot trust. This can be confusing, especially when your core belief systems are challenged. But over time, you will come to see that your original beliefs were built on a false understanding, and your new belief systems are more representative of reality.
The best way forward is to let this structure self-destruct so you can re-build and re-focus. And let’s be real – with a card like the Tower, you have no choice but to surrender to the destruction and chaos, no matter how unwanted or painful.
Change on this deep level is uncomfortable, but you need to trust life is happening FOR you, not TO you, and this is for a reason. This destruction will allow new growth to emerge and your soul can evolve.
After a Tower experience, you will grow stronger, wiser and more resilient as you develop a new perspective on life you did not even know existed. These moments are necessary for your spiritual growth and enlightenment, and truth and honesty will bring about a positive change, even if you experience pain and anxiety throughout the process.
Thankfully, the Tower doesn’t always associate with pain and turmoil. If you are highly aware and in tune with your inner guidance system, then this card can indicate a spiritual awakening or revelation. You may be able to see the cracks forming and take action before the whole structure comes tumbling down. You may create a massive transformation before you reach the point where change is your only option.
In its most positive form, the Tower card is your opportunity to break free from the old ways of thinking that have been holding you back.
Don’t let change scare you. It’s for your highest good. It’s coming so you can call in what you want and deserve. Most importantly, it’s clearly going to happen anyway, so we may as well embrace it.
