The next full moon is on Samhain for the southern hemisphere. For this full moon here we will be dedicating all our energetic work to our ancestors. You can check out the Samhain ritual on under our festivals tab for more information, this is the time we call in & remember all those who have come before us but Samhain is also the new year for many of us so looking ahead & planning our next year is also something we do here.
On the new moon each month we look at things that no longer serve us & separate ourselves from those things & move onto things that are more in line with our higher selves. When looking at the coming year it is a good idea to review those things that we have moved onto & for the things that are working very well we should look at how to enhance & strengthen them.
As well as this look at the longer term goals you are moving toward & reinforce your intent for these or if you have seen a year that has completely reordered your life's path set your intent as you feel is best for you. With the veil thin you can also ask the ancestors for guidance.
Other things that the full moon in April can energetically be helpful with includes healing trauma's past & new, attracting the beginnings of new love (this can in all forms not just romantic love) & for planting the seeds of new growth for the coming year (both metaphorically for your own growth & literally for winter veg).
If you have crystals that missed the last moon place them out on the night of the full moon, take care with those that are sensitive to moisture, & with the co-incidence of Samhain you might like to ask the ancestors to infuse energies with them as well. If you had them out on the last full moon place a clear quartz (amplifier), rose quartz (universal love) & amethyst (higher self/crown & spiritual enhancer) on your celebration altar or table to enhance the connection between you and your ancestors on the night.
Have a fantastic Samhain new year & ancestors celebration everyone.
