Drawing Down the Full Moon Ritual

Full Moon Ritual (with Drawing Down into moonstones)

A group of us got together to perform this ritual. It is based on one they did 5 years ago. At that time, they drew the moon down into one of the other participants so it originally had more protective elements built into that ritual. This is a shortened version for drawing down the moon into the Moonstones.

And allowing us to feel Your presence within our hearts.

Bless these stones, infusing them with Your divine wisdom”

We come here from our separate ways with our separate troubles,

We join together to celebrate and welcome you on this night,

And ease our hearts’ strife where we require ease,

Goddess we come to ask this and ask your power within us and these stones to guide us”

My Work is finished for the Night/Day and now I End my Magick Rite/Way.”

(extinguish the white candle)

Thrice Cast, and Thrice released

The Circle is open, but unbroken

Blessed Be

Re-Ground (if needed)

Take a deep breath, and release it. Take another breath, following your breath to the swirling energy in your center. Feel the energy in your center. Feel how it fits inside you. Decide if you’ve got too much energy or not enough. On your next breath, let the energy move down to your feet. Now let it flow down into the earth like roots. Past the concrete, past the top soil, past the stones and bones of our ancestors. if you had too much energy, let the extra flow down into the warm center of the earth. If you need a little boost — you’ve got a bit of a cold or just need a little extra, bring some of that warm earth energy back up with your breath. When you feel that your energy balance is just right, pull your roots back in. and when you are ready, return to the group
