Bust Through Blocks and Open Up New Avenues of Possibility

Aquarius Full Moon Ritual

Aquarius loves to bust out of ruts, and adopt new paradigms, and open up to possibilities.

All full moons are times when it’s appropriate to clear and bless your energy, manifest your desires, and/or banish qualities and conditions you don’t want. But at the Aquarius full moon, you can work with Aquarius’s unique energy to demolish blocks and unlock blessings by beginning to see and perceive things in new ways.

This year, the Aquarius Full Moon falls at 8:01 AM on the morning of Sunday, August 22nd.

Be aware that at 8:43 AM Eastern on that same day (click here to discover what this translates to in your time zone), the moon moves into Pisces. So if you can’t perform this full moon ritual before that, I suggest doing it on the evening of Saturday, August 21st, when the moon is still in Aquarius.

First, put your phone on airplane mode or “do not disturb” and create an ambient atmosphere. Light one or more candles (and possibly a stick of incense if that’s your thing), and make sure the lighting in your space feels relaxing and magical.

Write 1-5 goals, desires, or intentions. Write them in the present tense, as if they are already true. Here are some examples:

  • I am in a loving relationship with someone I adore.
  • I own a beautiful house that I can easily afford.
  • I have a great career doing what I love.
  • I always attract lots of money from expected and unexpected sources.
  • I know exactly what I want to do about ______.

Now, sit comfortably, with your spine straight in a relaxed way. Close your eyes, take some deep breaths, and center yourself. When you feel calm and present, create a playlist. Do this by tuning into the energy of each intention you wrote, and choosing a song that feels like you will feel when that intention is manifested. Perhaps the song will be celebratory, sensual, happy, triumphant, serene, or heart-opening.

You don’t have to be too precious about it. Choose somewhat quickly. Breeze through it. See what songs call to you or catch your eye.

Once you’ve created your playlist, put it on. You can play it in order or put it on shuffle.

Then, dance.

And by dance, I mean allow the music into your body. Don’t feel like you have to move in any particular way. Feel the music vibrate within your entire being. If and when you begin to feel like you naturally want to move your body, let that be your dance. For example, perhaps you’ll want to stretch out on the floor to let the music vibrate through you, or maybe you’ll find yourself sitting cross-legged and rolling your head from side to side. Or, maybe you’ll feel like dancing in a more traditional way, which is totally fine too.

The idea is to let the music shift your energy in such a way that you will be strongly attuned to the vibration of your desires. And that will happen naturally when you listen deeply and enjoy the moment.

As you move, feel as if you are expanding. Celebrate these beautiful new qualities and conditions you’re calling in. Imagine that they’re already present and ask yourself: how does this feel? And dance your response to that question.

Music changes energy. It’s a geometric pattern of energy that we can work with to unlock potential and attract beautiful new conditions. And since the Aquarius moon loves to shift paradigms, it will surely lend its power to your magic.
