As someone who has always been drawn to life’s spiritual and mystical side, I’ve always been fascinated by the power of divination – the art of seeking knowledge, wisdom, and insight through various forms of communication with the divine.
And while there are many different forms of divination to choose from, one that has always held a special place in my heart is full moon divination.
What is Full Moon Divination?
Full moon divination is the practice of using the full moon’s energy to connect with the divine and receive guidance, insight, and clarity.
It’s a way of tapping into the innate wisdom and power of the natural world and using it to shed light on the present and future.
There are many different methods of full moon divination, and the one you choose will depend on your personal preferences and the specific question or situation you’re seeking guidance on.
Some common methods include:
- Tarot readings
- Crystal divination
- Oracle cards
- Moon water divination
- Scrying (gazing into a reflective surface, such as a crystal ball or bowl of water)
Preparing for Full Moon Divination:
Before you begin your full moon divination, it’s important to prepare yourself and your space.
Here are a few things you can do to set the stage for a powerful and meaningful reading:
- Create a sacred space: Set aside a special place where you can conduct your divination free from distractions. This can be a dedicated altar, a quiet corner of your home, or even a spot in nature. Cleanse the space with sage or incense to purify the energy and create a sense of calm.
- Set your intention: Take a few moments to ground yourself and focus on what you hope to gain from your divination. Write down your specific question or issue, or state your intention to connect with the divine and receive guidance.
- Gather your tools: Assemble the tools you’ll be using for your divination. This could be a tarot deck, crystal ball, oracle cards, or any other tool that resonates with you. Take a few moments to connect with each tool and infuse it with your intention.
Conducting Full Moon Divination:
Once you’re prepared and ready to begin, it’s time to conduct your full moon divination. Here are a few steps to follow:
- Meditate: Take a few deep breaths and enter a meditative state. This will help you quiet your mind and open yourself up to the guidance of the divine.
- Choose your method: Select the method of divination you’ll be using. If you’re not sure which method to choose, trust your intuition and choose the one that feels most right for you in the moment.
- Perform the divination: Follow the specific instructions for your chosen method of divination. For example, if you’re using tarot cards, you might shuffle the deck, focus on your question, and then draw a card or spread of cards. If you’re using crystal divination, you might gaze into a crystal ball or lay out a grid of crystals and interpret the patterns and energies they create.
Interpreting Full Moon Divination:
Once you’ve completed your divination, it’s time to interpret the results.
This can be a deeply personal and intuitive process, and there’s no one “right” way to do it. Here are a few things to consider as you reflect on your reading:
- Trust your intuition: You are the expert on your own life, so trust your own inner wisdom as you interpret the messages you’ve received.
- Look for patterns: Look for themes or patterns in your reading. These may be repeated symbols or messages that stand out to you.
- Consider the context: Think about the specific question or situation you were seeking guidance on and how the messages in your reading might apply to it.
- Reflect on the potential meanings: Take some time to journal or meditate on the potential meanings of your reading. Don’t be afraid to seek out additional guidance or clarification if something doesn’t feel clear to you.
- Take action: Once you’ve received your guidance, it’s time to take action. Trust in the wisdom of the divine and have the courage to make any necessary changes or take any necessary steps.
Moon Water Divination:
One particularly powerful and intuitive method of full moon divination is moon water divination.
This involves creating a special elixir of “moon water” that is charged with the full moon’s energy and then using it to perform a divination.
To create your own moon water, you’ll need:
- A clear glass jar with a tight-fitting lid
- Filtered water
- A few drops of essential oil that resonates with you (optional)
On the night of the full moon, fill your jar with filtered water and add a few drops of essential oil, if desired.
Place the jar outside in a spot where it can be directly exposed to the moonlight. Leave it there for at least three hours or overnight if possible.
As the moonlight charges the water with its energy, focus on your intention for the divination.
You might recite a mantra or prayer or simply hold your intention in your mind.
Once you’ve collected your moon water, you can use it to perform a variety of divinations. Some ideas include:
- Gazing into the water: Sit quietly and gaze into the water, allowing yourself to enter a meditative state. Notice any images or symbols that come to mind, and reflect on their potential meanings.
- Scrying: Pour the moon water into a shallow dish or bowl and use it as a scrying medium. Gaze into the water and allow your intuition to guide you as you interpret any symbols or messages that come through.
- Moon water crystal divination: Add a selection of (water-safe) crystals to your jar of moon water and allow them to charge in the moonlight. Once you’ve collected the water, remove the crystals and lay them out in a pattern. Interpret the energies and patterns created by the crystals to gain insight and guidance.
Full Moon Divination for Manifestation:
Full moon divination can also be a powerful tool for manifestation – the process of bringing your desires and goals into reality.
The full moon is a time of heightened energy and power, making it an ideal time to set your intentions and tap into the universal law of attraction.
To use full moon divination for manifestation, focus on your specific goals and desires as you conduct your divination.
Look for messages and symbols that can help you clarify your vision and take steps toward manifesting it. You might also try using crystals or essential oils specifically associated with manifestation, such as citrine or sandalwood.
As you can see, full moon divination is a rich and diverse practice that offers endless possibilities for connection, insight, and manifestation. Whether you’re seeking guidance on a specific question or simply looking to tap into the divine for inspiration and direction, full moon divination can be a powerful tool on your spiritual journey.
So why not give it a try and see what wisdom and guidance the full moon has in store for you? With a little preparation, intention, and openness, you can access the powerful energy of the full moon and use it to bring clarity and purpose to your life.
Remember, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to full moon divination. Trust your intuition, be open to the messages you receive, and allow yourself to be guided by the divine.
With practice, you’ll find that full moon divination becomes a natural and integral part of your spiritual journey.
I hope this guide has inspired you to explore the magic of full moon divination and discover its potential for connection, insight, and manifestation. Happy divining!
