The Full Moon is complete illumination, the phase when Luna is at her brightest, most magnificent. Goddess has been building, gathering her light since the Dark Moon. Full Moon is a time of culmination. The seeds that were planted at the New Moon come to fruition. Each Full Moon carries within it the understanding and enlightenment of our Dark Moon initiations and workings.
Full Moon is Goddess Made Manifest. Standing under her radiant gaze, we are filled and empowered. All of nature responds to the cycles of the moon and at the Full Moon, she calls forth growth and abundance from all corners of the planet (think of the tides!). Her light activates our feminine essence, the soul seeds of Goddess deep within. We are nourished, supported, and brilliant reflections of Goddess Herself on earth.
Full Moon Goddesses
Queen of Night, Brightness of Night, The Very Manifest One, She Who Shines for All, Opener of the Gate, She Who Calls Forth, The Reward of Dreams, She who commands the rhythmic tides, The Shining One, The Brilliant One, Queen of All that Lives, Lady of Enchantments, Ruler of Night, Mighty in Heaven ~ epithets for the Moon
We may honor any Goddess during the Full Moon, but it is especially the time of the Mother Goddesses. Goddess as Mother reflects our own creatrix powers. We are ready to birth the creations that we have been seeding and nurturing. Motherhood and birthing is not just about physical birth, but about all of our creations and projects that come from our womanroots. We may also honor Moon, Love, and Fertility Goddesses during our Full Moon rituals of blessing and celebration.
Some Goddesses for Full Moon celebrations: Aphrodite, Astarte, Bast, Bona Dea, Brigid, Coatlicue, Danu, Demeter, Eurynome, Fortuna, Frigga, Gaia, Glispa, Hathor, Hera, Ishtar, Isis, Kore/Persephone, Kuan Yin, Lakshmi, Mami Wata, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Oshun, Pachamama, Pele, Radha, Rhea, Saraswati, Shakti, Sheela Na Gig, Sophia, Tara, Xochiquetzal, Yemaya
As we step into New Moon energy each month, we are moving from waning lunar energy (release) into waxing lunar energy (bring). We are RISING in the New Moon lunation (the time from one New Moon to the next New Moon). And that calls for a ceremony that helps you burn shit and release AND because we never release without filling that space, we plant, we invite new energies to replace the tired, worn excuses and fears.
Imagine, every month we get to hit the reset button; to start again; to invite new intentions and consecrate them for our divine pursuit of bliss!
