Full Moon in Virgo Ritual ~ February 2024

Are you ready to embrace change, question assumptions, and trust in the unfolding of your destiny?



This Full Moon is at 10.30pm AEST on Saturday the 24th February for those of us in QLD, Australia, which means the ideal time to do your Full Moon ritual is the very same evening, but don't stress if that doesn't work for you as the Full Moon energy hangs around for about 3 days either side of the peak full moon time.


For a great in depth look at the cosmic energies currently at play head to Moon Omens and/or Forever Conscious or just read on for a summary below before beginning the ritual.



As we stand at the threshold of astrological transitions, a cosmic dance unfolds, ushering us through the final stages of the astrological year. The Virgo Full Moon, Venus's journey into Aquarius, and the arrival of the Year of the Dragon converge to offer us a potent blend of introspection, healing, and transformative energy. It's time to explore the significance of these celestial events and their collective impact on our personal and collective journeys.


The Virgo Full Moon - Embracing the Purge Energy:

On February 24, 2024, the Virgo Full Moon graces the night sky, marking the conclusion of the astrological year and heralding the impending Eclipse Season. Guided by the energy of the Virgin Goddess, this Full Moon encourages us to turn inward, listening to the whispers of our hearts, bodies, minds, and souls. Embracing the call of our inner Virgin Goddess, we embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment, treating our bodies as temples and acknowledging the wisdom, intuition, and personal power within.


Under the Virgo Full Moon, Mercury, the messenger planet, amplifies the communication between our inner and outer worlds. The Universe sends us signs, urging us to pay attention to our thoughts, encounters, and challenges. This lunar phase invites us to heal and cleanse, paying heed to the messages within and around us, and trusting our inner voice to navigate the path ahead.


Venus in Aquarius - Questioning and Transforming Relationships: Simultaneously, Venus gracefully transitions from Capricorn to Aquarius, setting the stage for a profound shift in our approach to love, relationships, and finances. Venus in Aquarius challenges existing relational models, inspiring us to celebrate individual differences, embrace our quirks, and question assumptions about wealth and relationships. This transit, particularly impactful for those with placements in Fixed signs, invites us to reconsider priorities, fostering transformation in relationships and financial choices.


The rare triple conjunction of Mars, Venus, and Pluto in Aquarius signals a powerful invitation to radically transform our relationships, desires, and value systems. The cerebral and detached nature of Aquarius prompts inner conflicts about intimacy, pushing us to revolutionize our way of being in relationships and encouraging personal growth.


Pisces Season 2024 - Surrendering and Creating:

As the Sun moved from Aquarius to Pisces on February 18, 2024, we entered a liminal space, marking Pisces season. This transitional phase encourages us to surrender, release attachments, and create space for new beginnings. Pisces season emphasizes our interconnectedness with the mystical and intangible, urging us to connect with the source of creativity, explore intuition, and prioritize what feels true over practicalities.

Pisces season invites us to navigate endings, embrace transitions, and trust the unfolding of life's plan. The Full Moon in Virgo on February 24 and the New Moon in Pisces on March 10 add depth to this liminal journey, emphasizing the balance between control and surrender, effort and flow.




The Year of the Dragon - A Mythical Beginning:

Simultaneously, the Lunar New Year heralded the arrival of the Year of the Dragon on February 10, 2024. Unlike other zodiac animals, the dragon is mythical, symbolizing magic and mystery. The Dragon Year promises unmatched transformation, urging us to soar beyond doubts, kindling the flames of passion and determination. The convergence of Pluto in Aquarius and the Year of the Dragon amplifies the transformative energy, catalyzing personal and societal shifts.





As we navigate the celestial symphony of the Virgo Full Moon, Venus in Aquarius, Pisces season, and the Year of the Dragon, the cosmos invites us to embrace change, question assumptions, and trust in the unfolding of our individual and collective destinies. It's a time of purification, transformation, and the emergence of new possibilities. Let us step into this cosmic dance with courage, allowing the energies to guide us toward personal and collective rebirth.


This full moon is an ideal opportunity to purge and release anything that may be blocking your transformation. It can be a good time to question whether you are holding onto toxicity (either consciously or subconsciously) which could be preventing your purification process... and it's a great time for acknowledging what needs to be cleared to make room for new possibilities & opportunities. You can offer these things up now, allowing them to be carried away by the Full Moon’s powerful rays.



If you wish to receive a FREE Full Moon oracle reading from me please send me 3 to 5 pictures that you feel represent your true essence, from any era of time, and email them to sanctuary.safe.spaces@gmail.com with subject: “Full Moon Oracle Reading please”.



With so much cosmic energy shifting around us, our inner world can become our sanctuary, and if we’re able to go within, be still, present and deeply connect with ourselves and the wealth of wisdom living within us, our inner world can become our compass.


This full moon ritual encourages this journey inward, to reconnect to our inner wisdom/higher self/devine self, or whatever you wish to name it. This ritual offers us the opportunity to see with clarity the darker elements of ourselves whilst they are illuminated by the full moon, creating an optimal time to cleanse our energetic body and release any heaviness from our auric field that is not ours to carry. It is a great time to forgive others and forgive yourself in order to release and let go of all that may be holding you back in life. This is your opportunity to wipe your own slate clean in order to move forward.

What you will need for this Ritual

  • Journal & pen

  • Cleansing herbs/flowers/essential oils ~ this will depend on your chosen method of energy body/auric field cleansing

  • Objects of meaning to create a ritual altar It is recommended to have an object to represent each of the earthly elements:

1. Air ~ this could be incense, sage or diffused essential oils or perhaps gentle music.

2. Water ~ A glass of water

3. Fire ~ Candle flame

4. Earth ~ a plant, leaf, flower, a crystal or stone.


If you want to keep it simple, using a candle can actually cover all four elements (solid wax is earth, air flickers the flame, melted wax is water, and the fire is self-explanatory).

Optional extras:

  • Ceremonial Cacao or Chai or Tea

  • Tarot cards (if you don't have a deck then send through your essence images via email as mentioned above).


Sanctuary Virgo Full Moon Ritual


*The ideal time to perform this ritual is the evening of the 24th February prior to the Full Moon late in the same evening, but don't stress if that doesn't work for you, as the Full Moon energy hangs around for about 3 days either side of the peak full moon time.


Cleanse:

When it comes to energy cleansing, intention is everything. You don’t need fancy tools, just the intention.

If you’ve chosen to have a cleansing bath then do this prior to beginning the ritual.

If you have a face oil and gua sha or face roller you may choose to incorporate the use of these in your ritual cleanse.

If you’re choosing to smudge yourself along with your space then you can begin by lighting your sage or palo santo or other herbs, stating out loud your intention.

🎤 eg. With this smoke I cleanse myself and my space and go ahead and allow the smoke to move around your whole body and your space. If you cannot tolerate smoke then simply open a door or a window to allow the fresh air to cleanse the space around you stating your intention out loud 🎤 eg.I welcome this fresh air to cleanse my space.


Once you have cleansed yourself and your space, light your candle/s, and take a moment to appreciate the warm light it brings, illuminating you and all that you’re currently carrying, as you initiate this ritual.




✨ Draw an imaginary circle around yourself with a golden protective light. This circle represents the fifth element; Aether, tonight this circle is your portal between the cosmos and the terrestrial world. It is emptiness and vastness all at once, and within this circle you have drawn, you will be able to connect with the omnipresence of Aether, as you reconnect with yourself in this present moment.

Before we dive in ~ Just a little note about Full Moon release energy


The cosmic energy that builds leading up to the full moon forces us to deal with "our stuff." It is about peaking and releasing the old, of letting go of lower negative energies or patterns we may have fallen into.

The Full Moon Illuminates our own darkness, the deepest parts of ourselves that we usually can't see. It allows us to see where things are out of balance and we get the chance to bring them back into harmony.

Now is the time to process and release our fears, angers, arguments, disappointments etc. But in order to release the karma of these things we have to forgive, whether this be forgiving ourselves or forgiving another. Before journeying into our shadows, it is important to remember that before you incarnated you will have made several soul agreements, knowing that you wanted to evolve during this lifetime, and these soul agreements ask that other souls push you throughout this lifetime. This will show up in ways that our society might label as “triggering” or “pushing buttons” but ultimately these souls are showing up as teachers and are helping to guide you along your unique path of personal evolution.


So bear this in mind as you begin this introspective ritual, and see if you can look upon the difficult interactions in your life and imagine they are someone with whom you have a soul contract. Look for the lessons that the upset is teaching you. Is it possible to see it as a 'set-up' designed to help you evolve rather than an 'up-set'? If we accept that we’re having this human experience to evolve in order to eventually no longer have to reincarnate, we will see all of these difficulties as opportunities to learn and evolve.


So in this moment, as we turn our attention upon our inner turmoil, see if you’re able to thank the souls in your life for upholding their soul contract as being one of your teachers, whether they’re aware of it or not. Thank them and forgive them for the pain they are causing you during this human experience.


Journey into darkness ~ forgive & release others


Take a moment to peer into the depths of yourself without judgement, allow yourself to bring to mind anyone with whom you hold anger, a grudge or resentment.


This can be from the past few days, weeks or at any time in the past where you’ve held onto something that was done or said to you and you haven’t yet been able to forgive them.


✍🏽 Write down their names and as much about the situation as you need to EXPRESS it from your mind and body. Allow it to leave you and make its way onto the paper.


Now it’s time to visualise your forgiveness. Imagine each of them in turn, see them inside a pink bubble (pink representing love), see them in their true essence, as though they’re still an innocent child free from the conditioning of the world, free from the traumas of their own human experiences, and there they are in the bubble, smiling at you.


🎤 Allow yourself to create a good feeling between you two, allow that feeling to remain in your body as you say out loud, I forgive you.”


If you feel to you can also ask them to forgive you for your sinister feelings towards them, and then imagine releasing them and sending them love which helps them float off in their pink bubble out of sight.


Once you have repeated this forgiveness visualisation for everyone on your list you can rip the page from your journal and put it aside, ready to burn at the end of the ritual.


Journey into darkness ~ forgive & release self


Take a moment to peer back into your depths and bring to mind any habits, thought patterns, beliefs or upset that you want to release.

✍🏽 Write each one down, as many as you like, and again you can write about each one as much as you need to to EXPRESS it and allow it to move from your mind and body onto the paper.


Now, as before with forgiving others, imagine yourself in that pink bubble, as though you’re looking at your inner child, your true essence smiling innocently at you, before the conditioning of the world took hold, before the trauma of your own human experiences happened.


Allow yourself to feel self compassion, empathy and love. Allow that loving feeling to remain in your body as you say 🎤 I forgive myself for my past mistakes, for my bad habits, and my negative patterns. I forgive myself for everything.And then imagine that your inner child’s bubble floats towards you and merges with you.


🎤 To release the karma of the negative energy that you have been carrying you can recite the following (you are welcome to adjust the wording if you wish):

“Under this glorious full moon I forgive everything, everyone, every experience, every memory of the past or present that needs forgiveness. I also forgive myself of past mistakes and allow myself to be governed by love in a universe that is love. As love adjusts my life I abide in peace.”


🎤 You may wish to add:

“I bring love and healing to all my thoughts, beliefs and relationships. I learn my lessons and move forward. I call on my soul fragments to be cleansed by the full moon and I call on them to rejoin me. I send love to myself and everyone I know and everyone who knows me, in all directions of time. Under this glorious full moon, I am healed. My life is healed. And so it is. So be it.”


🔥 You can now burn both of your forgiveness lists ~ this cleanses the energies into the ether for transmutation into love. (Please ensure you do this safely. Go outside and have some water nearby to pour over the ashes once burnt).


Physically release the energy from your body


You may wish to move your body in any way that feels good to you. This could be putting on some gentle music and exploring slow movement in your body as you sit or stand.


You may feel to put on some energising music and get moving, perhaps dancing more vigorously. Or perhaps you’d like to shake or do Emotional Freedom Tapping or any other energy shifting exercises that you feel called to do in this moment.


As you do move you might like to imagine the old stagnant negative energies physically leaving your body.





Gratitude replacing the energy void


Now that you’ve released the energy of anger, upset, grudge or resentment it’s helpful to replace this with gratitude energy.


Doing this allows you to raise your vibration (gratitude vibrates at a similar energy level as love ~ above 500MHz) empowering you to feel happier and healthier and will help your manifesting abilities in 2 weeks at the new moon.


✍🏽 To begin this gratitude practice, write a list of all the people, things, events, feelings etc. that you’re truly grateful for in your life.




Now try and really FEEL into your gratitude. To help you with this, here is a guided gratitude meditation.






🔥 And as this time of month calls for release, you can burn your gratitude list or

🌱 You’re also welcome to plant it in the earth if you prefer, as though you’re planting the seed of gratitude to grow more things to be grateful for.

However you choose to release this list from your possession you may also like to state:


🎤 “I know that I am blessed and I live my life within that knowing



An optional deeper journey into the self



Time to ask some hard questions specific to this Virgo full moon. Having performed the energetic cleanse of the above ritual you're going to be more connected with your inner psychic and better able to answer the following questions truthfully, and hopefully without self judgement.




✍🏽 Virgo Full Moon journalling prompts (feel free to choose just a few from this list)


  1. Have I been too picky, pedantic or critical of myself or anyone else?

  2. Have I been humble to the point of underrating myself?

  3. Have I been of service to others enough this month?

  4. Have I been worrying and complaining too much, and thus attracting negativity?

  5. Have I paid enough attention to the details that I need to this month?



Closing your ritual


If you chose to go deeper by exploring the above questions you may have received some intuitive messages and guidance from deep within. You may wish to take note of these, along with the following important messages during this full moon:


Remember the importance of being helpful to others.

~

Find a balance between being down to earth and allowing yourself to dream!





  • To finish your ritual you may like to again move your body through dance, yoga, shaking, EFT tapping, Qigong or any other way that your body feels called to move.

  • You may also like to connect with your body through gentle massage all over your body and using your gua sha or face roller.

  • You may like to stand barefoot outside, connecting with the energy of the earth as you gaze upon the magnificence of the moon. Perhaps stating a mantra, intention or affirmation that arose from your journalling.

  • You may like to finish with a cup of chamomile tea or ceremonial cacao (as long as it wont keep you up all night of course!)


There is no right or wrong way to end your ritual, just follow your intuition and do whatever you feel called to do. But after you're finished, I do recommend doing some sort of calming meditation before bed as the full moon energy can really affect our sleep in the days leading up to and soon after the full moon.




I hope you've enjoyed this ritual. I'd love to hear any feedback you may have about what you loved or what you think could be improved upon. So please get in touch!


💜✨Love & light✨💜
