Lunar Eclipse Ritual

PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE // 11.30.20

TRANSFORM // Clear past energy and embrace your new journey.

Tonight we have both a full moon and a partial penumbral lunar eclipse - the last of four lunar eclipses in 2020. Lunar eclipses occur when the moon moves through the earth's shadow. These events often mark profound transformations in our lives and can encourage us to let go of things that no longer serve us. When we make space in our lives, new energy is able to flow and bloom.

To tap into the energy of this lunar eclipse, we suggest the following ritual. Feel free to moderate as you wish - the important thing is to do what feels right and true within yourself.

Gather:

  • A crystal (Suggested: Labradorite, malachite or chrysocalla)
  • Candle (we suggest our Eclipse candle naturally)
  • Bath Salts (ours are here)
  • Paper
  • Pencil (NOT A PEN, pencil is safer to burn)
  • Fireproof Bowl + Safe place to burn paper
  • Optional: Sage/Palo Santo/Aura Spray/Incense - purification tool of your choice

Cleanse your space with the purification tool of your choice, if you desire. Then, light your candle, and hold your crystal in your hands. Sit in silence for a few minutes. Breathe deeply. You can close your eyes while you do this, or meditate on the candle flame to help calm and center yourself. Ask the crystal for its energetic assistance in this ritual, and after.

When you're ready, grab your pencil and paper, and write out everything you’d like to release or transform in your life. When you're finished writing, light the paper on fire with the flame of your candle, and carefully place it in the fireproof bowl. As it burns, know with every fiber of your being that these things are being fully released or transformed in your life. Rinse the ashes down the drain of a sink, flush them down the toilet, or throw them out in a trash can outside of your house. 

Next, if you safely can, bring your Eclipse Candle with you to your bathroom, and run a bath. If not, put the candle out before you leave the room. Pour your bath salts into the water and allow them to dissolve. Get in the bath and fully feel the warmth of the water against your skin. Close your eyes and surrender to the Eclipse energy. Know that this Eclipse will support you in this moment of transformation and release. Soak for at least 30 min, and when you’re ready, drain the bath, and put your candle out. Give thanks to the Moon for its energy during this ritual, place your crystal under your pillow, and head to bed knowing you’re fully supported by the Universe.
