Full Harvest Moon tonight! It’s such a potent time for cleansing, ritual, meditation, and manifestation. Try these full moon rituals to make the most of the evening’s lunar energy.

  1. Cleanse and bless your space

    The full moon is a really good time to cleanse and bless your home and sacred space for the month to come.

    Walk through each room with frankincense incense, palo santo, or another sacred smoke. Waft the smoke around, making sure to get it into the corners and around all the windows and doors.

    Set the intention that your space is clear of any energies not aligned with your own. Bless it for peace, love, prosperity, and anything else you want to draw into your life in the coming month.
  2. Take a sea salt bath

    Put the full moon’s energy to work for you by immersing yourself in a warm bath infused with a handful of sea salt, a few drops of your favorite essential oils, and some sprigs of fresh lavender, rosemary, or a handful of rose petals.
  3. Meditate on what you wish to release

    While it’s more traditional to get rid of things you no longer need during the new moon, the full moon is also a good time to work this kind of magic. Think about it like this: Whenever you get rid of something, you make room for something new, which is a good use of the full moon’s energy.

    Write down whatever you wish to release, then burn the paper under the light of the full moon.
  4. Charge crystals and jewelry in moonlight

    Both of these have the ability to hold a lot of energy. On the night of the full moon, wash your crystals and jewelry in warm (not hot!) soapy water, and dry well.

    Set them where the light of the full moon can hit them overnight (in a dish by the window, on a windowsill, etc.)
  5. Set an intention for something you want to manifest this month

    Write down something you wish to draw into your life during the next moon cycle (28 days).

    Roll the paper up into a scroll. Tie it with a red or orange ribbon (these colors symbolize the fire of creation). Set the scroll by your bedside.

    Every night before you go to bed, reaffirm your intention and goal. Take actions in the everyday world to further your goal as well. Wait for the magic to unfold.
