Practical Magic: Full Moon in Virgo Rituals

How to Embrace the Full Moon in Virgo, loves!

First, let’s situate ourselves.

Many feel drained, discombobulated, depressed—overall significantly low in energy right now.

Those feelings aren’t ideal — but they’re not only okay, they’re on time.

This week, my dear friend Kearstin described telling time as “Primordial,” using seasons, land, and cosmic cycles to tell time versus the man-made calendar.

Our inner clocks tell us to wind down. Our bones know when it’s time to rest. Our nature – both within us and around us – tells us the same.

We are currently in the third act of winter. A time of full-stop slowness, a deep loss, a profound spiral.

Additionally, we are in the final days of the astrological calendar, with this full moon signifying the end to the year according to the Stars.

This creates a powerful opening to release, to let go, to shed the thick skin we’ve grown in winter months; we can emerge anew.

The Full Moon in Virgo rituals I’m about to suggest honor the low-energy feeling we’re still in, but embrace the fertile atmosphere ahead.

I’m not sharing one complicated ritual that takes a lot of time and energy. Instead, I list different ways to harness Full Moon in Virgo energy depending on your personal time and energy capacities.

This full moon is a special one—you won’t have to do much to feel its influence (unless you want to!).

Whether you spend 30 seconds, 30 minutes, or 3 hours on a ritual, it doesn’t matter. What matters is whatever amount of time and energy you feel is appropriate — choose it on purpose. Even if all you’re doing is tweezing your eyebrows or taking a breath of fresh air, do it with intent and the affirmation that you deserve to take this time for yourself.

Imagine that whatever you’re doing is removing stagnant energy from the past year, from the past season, from your energy field.

In these three categories – Minimal ⚡️ , Moderate ⚡️⚡️, and Max ⚡️⚡️⚡️, you will find they all:

✨ Are low or no cost
✨ Can be done at home
✨ Encourage the full moon influence to either release, reflect, or express
✨ Honor the Virgo energies to renew, arrange, and take root

Before you begin any and all activity, remind yourself of the reason you are putting your time and energy into this act:

State WHY, whether verbally or in your head: “I am doing this to let go of____, and invite in ____.

✨ Gather totems that represent full moons, earth, Virgo season and place them in a specific space for the next day or two – write a release and an intention on a piece of paper

In general, this can be a time to set boundaries with people, situations, or habits that drain your energy. Start with envisioning how you want to feel in your days, then think about what seems to get in the way of that in daily life. Be creative and specific about the lines that need drawn. For example, maybe you aren’t getting as much done as you like, but you’re in a depressive state — perhaps you can give yourself three main goals for each day instead of a laundry list. Or you may not be able to quit your job, but maybe you have power over when you check your email. Or perhaps you can’t cut off a relationship entirely, but you can choose to leave or disengage if the conversation/time with them is triggering (and let them manage their own response). These are just some ideas to get started because not everyone’s situation is the same.

Give yourself permission to be picky where you can.
