The Pisces full moon came through with its soft strength on Wednesday evening, offering fruition to the seeds planted during August’s new moon in Leo. Intuitive, dreamy, and emotional, Pisces is all about empathy—for yourself, others, and the planet as a whole. This week may find you breathing through an outpouring of love for the collective, a sense of innate understanding that the moon’s light only amplifies. Fortunately, through the lens of Virgo—whose season we welcomed on August 23—we are better prepared to make sense of the feelings that arise.
Here at Lulu, the phases of the moon have long served as inspiration for designs—and even entire collections. The orb controls our tides and our vibes and adorns our night sky, which, to our minds, makes her incredibly sacred. From the Ayla Necklace to Luna Earrings, whether crescent or full, the moon’s presence reminds us that the flow of energy is constant, and we are free to shift with it.
Considering that full moons represent the peak of this lunar energy, intense feelings and energy are natural before, during, and after a full moon rises in the sky. But how best to harness that potent force so you can ride the feels without feeling overwhelmed by them?
Full moon rituals, naturally, are all about fullness—an outpouring of light and power rather than the anticipation of it. So while new moons are perfect for intention setting rituals, allow the full moon to represent release—take a bath, dance under the brightened sky, pull out the list of manifestations that you scribbled during the new moon and set fire to it. Charge your crystals, cleansing them first in salt water, then placing them outside where the moon’s beams are sure to bathe them. Whichever way you choose to welcome her, the moon is a reminder to trust yourself, and the process.
