It’s a full moon week! So I had to write a post dedicated specifically on the mystical full moon this weekend (26th August) & how to use its magic to your advantage 🙂

Mercury retrograde is finally over, and the time to get back out there, make wise decisions and make the right moves is ON!!

If you haven’t read my earlier post on “The beautiful Moon” check it out first then continue reading…

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.




What about the Full Moon?

Let me start by saying what the Full Moon doesn’t represent. Many people think the full moon is a dark energy, a lot of bad things happen, people feel drained, tired, negative emotions surface up and so they think it’s not a magical event but let me tell you that that is incorrect! The full moon doesn’t cause any of these negative emotions, what it does is amplify ANYTHING! So if you are feeling happy – you will feel even more happier during the full moon week and likewise if you are feeling sad.

The full moon doesn’t cause any negative emotions, it just brings them up to light! 🙂

The full moon is illuminated by direct sunlight, represents transformation completion & abundance. It’s a good time for guidance, healing, magic, positive intentions, improving your psychic abilities. The evening before a full Moon is a perfect time for recharging your energy. It is a good time for recharging your energy crystals, oracle cards & release what no longer serves you.




Here are some things you can do on a full moon night: (the close to the actual date the stronger the magic!)

  1. Rest and recharge your own batteries.
  2. Reflect and journal
  3. Envision what you want to manifest
  4. Acknowledge any feelings that have resurfaced the past week
  5. Take a salt bath
  6. Recharge your crystals
  7. Recharge your oracle cards
  8. Cleanse your home with sage
  9. ‘Moon Bathe” Simply sit outside where you can see the moon and meditate
  10. Do a release ritual

This is my favorite thing to do – a release ritual! I’ve been doing this for the past 6 months at least & I love it, I look forward to it and I swear by it! 🙂

So for this release ritual you need:

  1. A quiet space
  2. Candle
  3. Paper
  4. Lighter
  5. Pen
  6. A tray/plate

Step 1: You can start this a week before by starting to write down list of things you want to release and let go of. So for example in a piece of paper I would write the following:

  • I release all fears
  • I release my fears of failure and succeeding
  • I release and let go of ALL negative self talk towards myself
  • I release all past traumas from this life and past lives
  • I release and cut cords with this person
  • I release my lack of self-love

I release, I release, I release…..

Do you see where I am going with this?




So once you write down you list down in preparation for the full moon ritual. On the night of the ritual, you bring your list, candle, lighter & your tray.

Step 2: You start by lighting up your candle, you then call upon your angels, your spirit guides you team, god whatever you want to call them, just make sure they are positive beings 🙂

This is what I say… “I call upon my team, my spirit guides, my guardian angels and elders. Beings of the highest frequency, I call upon you to help me release what no longer serves me…”

Step 3: Once I say this I read out my list of things I want to release sometimes repeat each sentence 3 times. I then roll the piece of paper and BURN IT.

Watch it burn, visualize all these things being released to the universe. You can also visualize this energy being converted into something positive. So think of what you want to manifest into your life.

Step 4: once it’s all burnt, sit there and feel the energy of the ritual. Thank your team and clean any mess you have created!! 😉

Step 5: watch your life transform with time!

You can do this anytime but full moon nights are when the energy is the strongest hence why I do it then.

& here you have it guys, this is how I make the most of a full moon night & the few days leading up to that.

I hope you find this post interesting and helpful 🙂

Lots of love,
