Just after a romantic Valentine’s Day weekend, February's full moon in Leo arrives Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022, at 11:57 a.m. EST. Not just any full moon, this one promises to enhance the vibrations of creativity, liberation, attraction, and passion. Now that's what I'm talking about!
If you're ready for some fresh energy in your love life or just want to zhuzh up your overall passion for life, now's the time to use this month's moon energy to bring some positive changes to your life.
If your love life is stalled, nonexistent, or toxic, make corrections in your course and attract a healthy, happy romantic relationship. Here's a fun exercise to get you started.
Grab your journal or some paper and write out a fictitious dating site profile based on your past relationships. If you've been less than successful in love, it's might look something like this:
"Desperate ( _ ) looking for a co-dependant person to validate the notion I'm worthless and unlovable. Please feel free to treat me badly. I have low expectations and am pretty much willing to put up with all of your crap."
Have some fun with it. After all, humor is the best medicine. But also pay attention to what things are continuing to sabotage your relationships. Once you really understand that YOU are the common denominator, you will be surprised how empowering that realization is! YOU get to control how YOU respond to people. You get to decide how YOU feel about yourself. If you truly feel unlovable, it's difficult to attract someone to truly love you. Healthy relationships start with the relationship you have with yourself.
Full moons are the point in the lunar cycle when truths are revealed, conclusions are drawn, and things are released. The perfect time to take this information, and find a new way forward. Let's get started.
Full Moon Ritual
First, you need to clear your energy field and aura. Use the tool of your choice:
Take a ritual salt bath or shower
Use a Selenite, Kyanite crystal, or athame blade and run it through and around your aura to clear negative energy
Put on clean clothes
Light a candle and surround yourself with protection, light, and divine love. If you have crystals, place them around your area. Rose Quartz is the stone of love and a great option. My favorite prayer to start things off with is the Prayer of Protection by James Dillet Freeman.
The Light of God surrounds me.
The Love of God enfolds me.
The Power of God protects me.
The Presence of God watches over me.
Wherever I am, God is!
Make the second entry in your journal or some paper and celebrate who you are, who and what you love, and why. Feel free to add some doodles, color, stickers... make it fun.
Next, on a separate piece of paper, write this exactly, "All the stuff that has been sabotaging me, and preventing me from achieving happiness in relationships."
I'm sure you could write a short novel on all your shortcomings, but save it for your memoir buttercup. We're trying to get you to move past your blockages, not reinforce them!
Finally, create an entry listing all the things you would like to attract in your life.
Wad up the piece of paper with the statement about "All the stuff..." and your fictitious profile and safely burn them. You know the drill. Water, sand, use something fireproof, not inside... be safe. As it's burning watch the smoke rise up, taking with it all the burdens you've been carrying for so long.
Recite the following:
I release all that has sabotaged me in the past,
And reject the false narratives that have kept my eyes bound.
Health, wealth, and love is now what I ask,
And with eyes wide open I experience it all around.
May all be perfectly aligned with my soul's higher purpose. So, Mote, it be.
Spend as much time as you choose with your candle and your fire-releasing ritual. You will know when you are finished. For the next few weeks, pay close attention to people, and opportunities that show up in your life. Use your discernment. Are they remnants of the old energy? Or the new you? If it feels comfortable, familiar, and possibly gets your heartbeat up, BEWARE! It's likely the OLD you and old ways. Seems backward I know, but the new vibrational may create attractions that feel uncomfortable for a while.
Think of your now favorite pair of shoes. Remember when they were new? I suspect they were stiff, and maybe caused a blister or two! Hang in there. To effect a change in your life, you have to expect change. Anytime you feel unworthy of love or just plain unlovable, go back to this ritual and repeat.
