April’s Full Moon is quite meaningful, as it brings us to the tail end of an incredibly important chapter. In early February, we began hearing the call from the Universe to embrace deep healing as several planetary forces began activating the energy of Chiron.
In astrology, Chiron brings the archetype of the Wounded Healer, representing a sore spot and insecurity that is hard to talk about and even accept. Chiron is currently in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac that brings the archetype of the unapologetic and courageous Warrior, Leader, and Pioneer.
As the Libra Full Moon rises in the sky on Wednesday, April 5th at 9:34 p.m. Pacific Time, it challenges Chiron, bringing one more squeeze. It is asking us to release any thoughts and blockage that prevent us from embracing our Inner Warrior, that courageous part of ourselves that wants to see us lead, grow, and succeed. This lunar event is about healing the most important bond we have, the relationship we have with ourselves, and our own power. If you’re ready to leave the past behind and embrace a powerful new you, the following ritual is for you!
MIRROR RITUAL FOR THE FULL MOON
You will need a pen, paper and matches, a small black candle, a small red candle, a small dish, and a mirror.
Light the black candle and begin writing on your paper the obstacles that have been preventing you from showing your leadership skills or moving forward in life. These could be external obstacles as well as internal feelings.
Once you are finished, go down the list and purposedly banish each one of the items. For example, if “fear from being seen” is one of your hold-ups, repeat this mantra three times: “Fear from being seen, I banish thee.” Once you are finished with your list of items, put the paper on the dish and light it up with the matches. As you see the paper burn, imagine your obstacles disappearing, being absorbed by the light of the Full Moon.
Next, turn your red candle on as you repeat the following list of mantras, three times each, while staring at your own eyes in the mirror:
“I love and admire myself.”
“I am excited to share my gifts and talents with the world.”
“The healthiest relationship I have is the one with my higher self.”
“I am a courageous leader, unafraid of trailblazing my way up.”
