Create a ritual to honor the moon every month. Do you only celebrate the full moon? Try honoring the dark moon this month and see how it changes your practice.
I have honored the moon phases for a long time. Maybe not every phase, maybe not every month, but there have been times.
A formal ritual for it? *thinks* When I first started, yes, I would be more formal about it? How? Cast a circle, anyway you like, invite the attendance of your gods, and if you wish, concentrate on some good habit you’d like to cultivate this month. You can pour a libation of thanks to your gods, if you like, or bring out some crystals to charge with full moon’s powers, should you feel like it. Or any other magical tools or jewelry you might wish. Or just settle down for simple meditation, if you wish. After you’re finished, release the circle and thank your gods. That would be the usual format of a full moon ritual.
Not that I always go to all that trouble, but if I’m feeling traditional, I might. Certainly, Caitlin and Beryl and their Starfort coven would do so!
What do you do for the full moon?
