The rare Super Blood Moon Eclipse falls in the sign of Leo on January 20-21st. This Eclipse is helping to bring closure to huge cycle of growth, healing, and transformation that we have been working with since 2017. If we think back to this time in our lives, we can reflect on just how much we have grown and just how much we have changed. We may even be able to see how our lives have taken new shape and catapulted us into a new direction.
This Leo Eclipse is the last in the cycle, which means the final rebirth is here. This is the final release and culmination moment to all of this energy, and it’s the perfect time for ritual work.
The energy of the Moon will be strong and powerful, and the supporting cosmic energies will be heightening our sensitivity and making it easier to cross dimensions, tap into our intuition, and receive angelic downloads.
This is a time to really connect within, a time to replenish your soul, honor your journey, and to channel your higher self. This is a time to open to the guidance of the Universe, and to allow yourself to be directed whichever way the hand of the Eclipse guides you.
This ritual is a supportive, nourishing one that will help you to do just this. It will help you to open your psychic and intuitive energies, and to download wisdom of the past and future.
Leo Super Blood Moon Eclipse Ritual
This ritual is best done from January 20th-February 1st or on February 20-21st, 2019
You will need:
- Smudging tool of choice (sage, palo santo, oils etc.)
- 1 new candle (preferably white)
- Safety pin or something similar to carve into your candle
- Pen and paper
1.) Set up your ritual as follows- Place the unlit candle on the middle of a table or on your altar. Have the room dimly lit and try to do this ritual away from any open windows or fans/air conditioners etc. (you will see why later!).
2.) Smudge your aura first, then your surroundings and the candle. For more specific information on how to smudge, please read this.
As you smudge your aura recite the following-
“Cycles come and cycles go, it’s time to watch this wheel unfold. I cleanse myself from top to toe, I cleanse myself so I can grow. I release the energy that holds my heart, I release the energy of the dark. I release this energy so I may shine, I release this energy so I can become mine. I am cleansed, I am clear. I am cleansed, I am clear. I ask my spirit guides to hold me near, for I am cleansed, I am clear.”
As you smudge your surroundings, recite the following-
“The wheel has turned the seasons are changing, it’s time to clear the old. I release and let go of all that no longer serves me. I release and let go of all stagnant energy in this space. I clear and cleanse this space so it may welcome in the magic of the new. I clear and cleanse this space so it may feel light and free. My space is cleansed. I am whole. My space is cleansed. I am protected. My space is cleansed. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
3.) Sit or lay down with eyes closed and take 10 deep breaths in and out. Settle your mind and just relax into your body. With eyes still closed, do a body scan. Start at your feet and imagine a beautiful golden light traveling up your feet, through each of your toes, and then up your ankles, to your knees, to your pelvic region and so on. Keep following this golden light until it shoots out the top of your head.
4.) Open your eyes, place your hands on your heart and say – “I love you” to yourself. Give yourself a big warm hug and take a moment to thank yourself for all your hard work and efforts over the years.
5.) Now, pick up your unlit candle and holding it in your hands say the following-
“I honor the changes that have been made to my body, mind, and soul. I honor the changes of the season for I have really grown. I ask Mother Moon, my highest self, my angels, and my guides to lead me to my highest path so I may rise. I rise up now to all that I have become. I rise up now as strong as the Sun. I ask for guidance, I ask for peace, I ask for this next chapter to bring me release. I ask for love, I ask for money, I ask for purpose, and the courage to follow my heart; to always be guided even when in the dark. I ask for health, I ask for joy, I ask for all to be well. Body, mind, and soul hear my calls. My wish is now fulfilled. All is well. All is well.”
6.) Now take your unlit candle and the safety pin and begin by carving a spiral at the bottom of the candle. As you do this, try to get into a relaxed meditative state. Once you have completed your spiral, begin decorating the candle in any way that calls you. You can draw, write words of things you want to release or things you want to bring in, there is no right or wrong, just trust your intuition and decorate the candle in whatever way you wish.
Note: if your candle is in a plain glass jar, you can use a marker to decorate the glass instead if you wish.
7.) Take 5 deep breaths and just take a minute to look at your decorated candle. Notice any themes or patterns that have come up for you. Notice what shapes and words you chose to include. Just observe any thoughts or feelings that arise.
8.) Now take your candle and light it. Place your hands in prayer position at your heart center and gaze on the flame for a moment. Take 10 deep breaths here and as you do, imagine you are breathing in the light of the flame.
9.) Watch and observe all the different colors that make up the flame, feel your body relaxing and your intuition opening as you continue to gaze.
10.) With a clear mind, ask your candle a question. What do you want to know? What insights or intuitive wisdom do you want to receive? It can be any question you wish or whatever feels right in the moment. Ask your question and then watch what the flame does.
If your flame….
Stands taller: indicates that what you want is coming, your question has been heard and what you want is being delivered to you with ease in divine timing.
Gets smaller: indicates that you need to re-shift your focus or perhaps are looking or searching for something that is not aligned with your higher destiny. Reframe your way of thinking about things.
Flickers: indicates that what you want is coming about however, there may be some road bumps along the way or challenges to overcome first. This indicates a lot of growth for you in regards to your question but a positive outcome.
Leans left: you need to go back and look towards your past in order to move forward. Your past contains wisdom for you that will help with the answer to your question. Your past holds the answers you are looking for.
Leans right: you are sending out strong intentions that are being heard and listened to, however there may be more time needed before what you want will come your way. You would benefit from keeping your mind clearer and more focused on what you desire.
Leans towards you: you hold the key to getting what you want and gaining the answers you seek. You know more than you allow yourself to realize. The answers have already been given to you and you know what to do, you just need to remember.
Leans away from you: you need to take physical actions to bring about what you want. You need to also pay attention to the mind-body connection and be kinder to your body and support it with exercise, nourishing foods, sleep etc.
Goes blue: your spirit guides are near you and know what you desire, follow the signs of the Universe and it will lead you to where you need to be. Also an indication that you have strong intuitive energies and are ready to connect with your spirit guides and angels if you haven’t already. Give yourself permission to talk to them now.
Goes bright yellow: you need to get creative in order to bring what you desire into your life. You have creative energy that needs to be unlocked and will help you on your journey. Can also indicate success in a creative field.
Crackles: your spirit guides/higher self have been trying to communicate with you, but you are unable to hear. You need to open your heart and clear your mind in order to receive their message.
The best thing to follow here is your intuition. You may also find that your flame does more than one action, so feel free to take what resonates with you the most.
You can also ask as many questions as you wish, but thank the candle, pause and refocus in-between each question.
11.) Once you are done asking questions, gaze on the candle flame once more for 7 breaths. Now, close your eyes and see the colors dancing behind your eyes. Focus on this for another 11 breaths.
12.) Once the colors start to fade, imagine a doorway appearing. Behind this doorway is what you need to focus on right now at this time in your life. An important message is behind this door. When ready, push open the door and see what’s behind. Try not to judge, just observe.
13.) When ready, open your eyes and feel free to jot down what you saw or experienced behind the door so you can remember it or work on the meaning over the coming months. Try to include all the details even if they don’t seem important, as you never know when they may come in handy.
14.) To close the ritual, place your hands in prayer position over your heart center and take a moment to thank yourself, your guides and angels. You can also say this closing prayer if you wish-
“A new door has opened, a new journey has begun. I thank the Universe for all that it has done. I thank my body, I thank my mind, I thank myself for being kind. I thank the Universe for the Divine guidance I have received, I thank myself for all I have achieved. I thank the messages that have come through today, and I remain open to any further guidance that may come my way. Thank you. Thank you.”
15.) Keep your candle burning for as long as you are around to attend to it. You can keep relighting the candle whenever is convenient for you, but try to work through it within 28 days of completing this ritual.
