Full Moon in Cancer + Spiritual Beauty Ritual

The Winter Solstice brought the energy of a hidden new beginning. An opportunity to guide yourself out of the darkness and into your light. Doing so by setting clear intentions about:

  • What you want to release
  • What you want to experience
  • Who you want to become

An opportunity that may have been lost in the hustle and bustle to do, to buy and impress during this holiday season.

The Full Moon builds on this energy of releasing and embracing a new beginning. An opportunity of a fresh start and clean slate. However, this clean slate is not given. It is created by You! Created through your intentions and soul-inspired actions.


FULL MOON ENERGY

When the moon is full it shines at it’s brightest. Illuminating anything that’s been hidden in the darkness.

A Full Moon governs our emotional energy. So, it shines a light on those emotions that you’ve been hiding and suppressing or even ignoring. Bringing them to the surface to be seen, to be felt and to be transmuted.

This is an important part of the law of attraction process and general self development. Yet it’s a process that not many want to partake in. Having a preference for flying high and living in the upper chakras. Forgetting that we live in a material, physical world and that energy needs to flow – in and out, in order for us to live fully and sustain our manifestations.


FULL MOON IN CANCER

A moon in the sign of Cancer is very much at home and in its comfort zone because Cancer is governed by the moon. Therefore a Cancer Full Moon will throw the spotlight on:

  • The home
  • Family
  • Relationships
  • Femininity
  • Memories of the past
  • Comfort zones

Although you’ll do well to remember that our personal astrology chart and own soul growth may also have an impact on the themes that are highlighted for you at this time. This is why your personal awareness is so important, especially when working with the energy of the Moon.

Cancer is also the sign of the Mother, divine feminine, caregiver and nurturer. She is the natural healer and is deeply intuitive, with a hidden inner strength that few may be aware of. Cancer also likes her creature comforts and taking trips down memory lane.


WAYS TO WORK WITH CANCER FULL MOON

1. In her shadow Cancer can have a hard time letting go of the past. Yet her on point intuition will often guide her to do exactly that and her inner strength will support her to do this with as much ease and grace as possible. So, give yourself permission to facilitate the process of letting go of who or what no longer serves you, especially as you head into 2019.

2. The embodiment of the Divine Feminine energy with her perfect blend of feminine gifts, vulnerability, compassion and inner strength. A Cancer Full Moon brings about more opportunities to awaken your own feminine energy and really step away from old paradigms in a search of something new, real and uniquely you.

3. The Mother who wants peace, happiness and love to prevail in the home. Cancer will go above and beyond to make sure others are happy, watered and feed. Nurturing and loving, sometimes to the point of smothering when in the shadow. Look at where you could either be nurturing more or smothering less. Get the perfect mix to maintain that flow of energy.

4. Cancerians are private (I know bevause I am one). They go within before going without. Tune into where you are being called to go within, connect to your own intuition or simply take stock and rest.


SPIRITUAL BEAUTY RITUAL

Capricorn Sun energy (Capricorn is Cancers opposite sign) and Cancer Moon energy brings the opportunity to ground, whilst also nurturing yourself from the inside out.

One way to do this is to enjoy a Full Moon bath. Think scented candles and relaxing music to set the right mood.

Fill your bath with Himilayan or Epsom salts, both of which are known for the cleansing properties. Choose a crystal that compliments the energy of what you want to work on during this Full Moon eg: Rose Quartz for forgiveness or Smokey Quartz for energy clearing. Place it in the bath or around the bath tub. Work with the energy of the Moon to release and let go.


Don’t be surprised if colds, flu or just plain old fatigue hit you rigjt now. I know its hard at this time of year but try not to resist it. A purging of energy is taking place or your body is saying it wants to rest.

However you choose to work with the energy of this Full Moon be sure to enjoy it and work with the energy. Most of all, try to make the most of spending time on your own. Resting and beautifying yourself from the inside out. You are worth it.

3 ways to be more spiritual in your beauty routine + heal your relationship with yourself

When we talk about conscious beauty our thoughts normally go towards vegan and ethical beauty products or eating mindfully and healthily. Yet, the kind of conscious beauty that I want to focus upon today involves mind, energy and emotions.

Over the last few years the world of beaury has changed with more and more people taking a more conscious approach. Rather than being seduced by the brand + packaging we are looking more closely at the ingredients and we are asking questions about how ethical the brand is.

But, what if we could take this a step further by using our beauty routine as a way to consciously align our mind, energy and emotions to heal our relationship with ourselves? In today’s blog post I’ll share some tips on how you can do exactly that.


DEFINING SPIRITUAL BEAUTY 

Spiritual Beauty involves going within to do the inner work in order to heal your relationship with yourself and step out of the dark into your light. The tools I use include energy healing, spiritual guidance (including mindset, mystical wisdom and ritual) and outer beauty treatments.


SPIRITUAL BEAUTY RITUAL

Decide

Set an intention for your beauty routine. Decide how you want to feel and how you want to show up in your world that day. For example, you may have an important interview and you want to feel confident. Invite the Angels, God or whoever you believe in to support you in aligning with this energy through the power of prayer or setting an intention.

Prayer: “Thank you for blessing my day ahead and everyone that I meet. Thank you for blessing me and filling me with (insert what you want to receive).” For added emphasis and energy alignment choose a crystal that matches the energy of your intention, eg: Green Aventurine for luck or Mangano Calcite for self love.


Affirmations

Have affirmations close by and say these as you are applying your make-up in the mirror. Your affirmations can be a mix of things that you love and honour about yourself, alongside those that align with one specific thing that you are working on manifesting into your life.

Tip: Begin your affirmations with the words “I am“. It is believed that whatever follows the words “I am” are instantly affirmed by God and you will become that. Read more here.


Awareness

As you apply your makeup begin to notice where your thoughts go. Notice whether or not those thoughts are self-affirming or devaluing you. It’s possible that when your attention moves towards a particular part of your face or body you feel a shift in your energy, eg: butterflies or tightness in your tummy.

Is this an indication that you need to love this part of your body more? Are their thoughts and beliefs about this part of your body that devalue you?

Tip: Acknowledge the energy, thought and feeling. Reframe and affirm what you want to think and feel about that part of your body instead. Where possible use the word “I am” and if it’s hard to believe the new affirmation trying saying “I am giving myself permission to let go of the belief that……” and follow this with “I am willing to believe that…..”


ARE YOU READY TO EXPERIENCE SPIRITUAL BEAUTY?

Take what resonates from the practice of Spiritual Beauty and don’t feel the need to do it all at once. Start with one of the actions and focus on it over a sustain period of time. On the other hand you may prefer to take one activity and make it into a weekly ritual. Choose what feels good, aligned and manageable for you.

Be patient with yourself too. Whereas you might be able to change some beliefs that you have about yourself quickly, there may be others that take more time. Often these beliefs and thoughts have been engrained in you over a period of time. Affirmed over and over again through experiences and interactions with others, sometimes since childhood. In some cases you have even inherited these beliefs from your your parents and taken them on as your own. Therefore, the practice of Spiritual Beauty will take practise and consistent effort.

I’d love to hear how you get on so feel free to comment below or message me personally.

With love from me to you xo
