What Does the Full Moon Symbolize in Astrology?

Every month, the lunar cycle completes its journey from the new moon to the full moon and back again, bringing a unique energy that we can use to connect with the universe's wisdom and align ourselves with the stars. A full moon occurs when the sun, representing your ego and heart's desire, sits opposite the moon, representing your emotions and intuition. The full moon marks the pinnacle of this journey, a moment of reflection and contemplation. As the moon shines brightest in the night sky, we are reminded that new revelations and insights are waiting to be discovered. This is a time to turn inward and explore the emotions and intuition that guide us along our path. By doing so, we can realign our energy and renew our spirit, ready to embrace the next phase of our journey.

The Best Full Moon Rituals Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Aries: Try a Full Moon Yoga Session

Full moons are a highly emotional time that can cause underlying stress and feelings to surface. If you're looking for an easy way to manage all the tension built up for you over the weeks leading up to the full moon, try a full moon yoga session under the starry sky. All you need is a yoga mat, some comfortable clothing, and about 20 minutes to press pause, reconnect with yourself, and call in the lunar energy to bring peace to your day.

Taurus: Manifest With a Full Moon Simmer Pot

Emotions and senses are heightened during the full moon, making it a great time to indulge in self-care that helps you unwind and relax. One easy and enjoyable way to create a magical atmosphere in your home is by making a simmer pot. You can use full moon water as a base and add ingredients such as apples, cranberries, cinnamon, cloves, rosemary, lavender, and more to infuse your space with your desired intention.

Gemini: Ground Yourself in Nature

Astrology is the study of the celestial bodies and how they move across the night sky. So, it makes sense that when the full moon comes out to play, and your emotions get the best of you, you turn to the goddess of the night skies and ground yourself in nature. This is an especially helpful tip for earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) but can be utilized by anyone. Start by wearing comfortable clothing and grabbing anything you need for your ceremony: a moon water jar, crystals, a yoga mat, music, candles, and more. From there, set up under the glistening night sky and let the full moon's energy wash over you.

Cancer: Create a Full Moon Altar

As a Cancer, you possess a deep connection to the moon, and the full moon is an especially powerful time for you. By creating a full moon altar in your home, you can tap into the magnetic force of this monthly event and manifest your intentions. With each passing month, your altar will become more infused with your energy, allowing you to connect with the lunar goddess in a truly magical way.

Leo: Try a Full Moon Tarot Spread

Leo is ruled by the sun, making the full moon a polarizing and confusing time for you. As a fire sign, you strive to follow your passion, but the full moon demands introspection. Your ego wants one thing, and your emotions want another. If you’re confused about what path or step to take next, a full moon tarot spread can show you the answers you seek. Use the spread we provided below or create one of your own to divine what steps you should take to fulfill your dreams.

Virgo: Host a Full Moon Dinner Party

As a Virgo, you have a sentimental side that enjoys spending quality time with friends and loved ones. Hosting a full moon dinner party every month is the perfect way to bring everyone together and celebrate life's emotional depth. You can plan a unique theme and menu each month, providing a safe and comforting space for others to share their joys and struggles. Cherish these moments and let them inspire you to create more meaningful connections in your life.

Libra: Go on a Date Night With the Moon

You're a lover, not a fighter, Libra! Under the influence of Venus, the planet of love and attraction, the full moon brings out the romantic in you. Take yourself out on a special date every full moon, indulge in your favorite things, and treat yourself to a life of luxury. Align your activities with the energy of each full moon for an enriching experience! Dinner, drinks, dancing - say yes to everything!

Scorpio: Draw a Full Moon Ritual Bath

Scorpios are known to hang onto their emotions and let them linger, which is the perfect excuse to drop a bath under the full moon. Full moon ritual bats are an ideal opportunity to wash away all the problems that have been playing you over the last few weeks. You can add any number of scented oils, dried flowers, or other ritual items to make your bath more customized. Turn down the lights, light the candles, turn on some music, and slip under the waters as you enjoy yourself.

Sagittarius: Set Fire to Your Negativity

Sagittarius is a fire sign, and the full moon is your perfect excuse to set it all ablaze. If you are looking to release toxic thought patterns or lingering emotions in the coming weeks, a bowl-burning ritual is a perfect way for you to let it all go. Start with a fireproof bowl, write down all of your complaints or frustrations on a piece of paper, and set it all blaze as you allow your emotions to go with it.

Capricorn: Do an Energy Cleansing Ritual

Energy cleansing rituals are different than releasing or transmuting emotions. They offer a complete reset of your emotional vibration and favor of something more aligned with your current goal. As a Capricorn, you were likely very ambitious and focused on what you can achieve, even in the short term, so the full moon is a chance for you to reflect on how you feel about your current situation and make plans for how you might slightly adjust things to land where you’re trying to be.

Aquarius: Get Wild With a Full Moon Dance

Aquarius is the wild child of the zodiac, so you don’t need any excuse to let loose. But the full moon is your chance to let it all go under the glistening light of the night sky with a full moon dance. Put together a playlist of all your favorite music that helps you shake it loose and express yourself, or find a curated playlist online that embodies the witchy spirit, then just set up your candles and other accoutrement under the moonlight and dance until your heart is full!

Pisces: Make a Jar of Moon Water

The moon possesses the power to elevate and transform our emotions into something beyond ourselves, and it has a similar impact on all other elements on Earth. Moon water is regular water that has been energized under the full moon's light and bestowed with its abilities. Making moon water is as simple as placing a glass jar with water outside under the moonlight and letting it absorb la luna's vibrations. Don't forget to collect your moon water before sunrise, and you'll have a perfect ritual object to aid your journey of self-discovery.
