Take out your journal and tarot/oracle cards
It is a good time to revisit your Sagittarius New Moon Spread and review the intentions you made during the new moon.
Are your intentions taking root into your daily life?
What does the Full Moon in Cancer card say to you now?
Does your initial impression still stand?
Has anything changed?
Any new insight in hindsight?
Look back at your notes from the Cancer New Moon (in June and July) and review those intentions. Have you manifested any? If you have, great! If not, is it something you still want? Is it something to revise or something you must go on a quest for?
It is also a good time to shuffle your deck (or use your intuition) and ask:
What makes me feel safe and secure?
How can I best trust my gut instincts?
Where in my life is a new beginning emerging?
How can I give and receive more emotional warmth?
Full Moon Ritual - Charge your Spiritual Tools
The light of the Full Moon amplifies everything with the energy of manifestation. This is why many coven's meet on the full moon to perform their magical rituals.
Take out your crystals, rosaries, tarot, and oracle decks (etc) and cleanse them with the scared smoke of sage, cedar, copal or whatever you have on hand. The important thing is cleanse with the intention of clearing and neutralizing energies from the tools.
To charge your spiritual tools take them outside where they can get the energy of the moon (a window sill will also do).
For each spiritual tool state your intention and add something like "I invite the light and manifestation power of this Full Moon to bless and amplify this spiritual tool so it may serve its highest good. Blessed be."
In the morning offer a prayer of gratitude to the moon and your spiritual tools or its potent new energy.
