full moon magic - 33 ways to work with the energy of the full moon by New Age Hipster

It's a powerful and potent time for magic when mamma moon is out in full force!

It's a great time to work some magic, and this post is gonna offer up a few ideas of ways you can harness this power for your own magical, spiritual and energetic uses.

If you're looking for info about the New Moon you can check out the sister post - New Moon Magic to this one!

For me the full moon is a great time to connect to my intuition and do some releasing work. as the moon begins to wane I know I'm releasing with her. :)

The full moon can often feel quite heavy to me too, so it's always a time when I need to focus on self-care and being nice to myself.

So let's get into it! Here's 33 ways you can work with the energy of the full moon!




Read your own Tarot or Oracle cards

Invite some friends over and read cards for each other

Alternatively, get on Skype with a witchy friend and read for each other online style!

Full Moon Tarot Spread

Write down what you want to release, rip it up and burn it

Light a candle for those you love

Light a candle for those you've lost

Honour your ancestors with incense, candles and chanting or singing

Write a letter to a passed over loved one and burn it to send it off to them (they will be there watching you write it of course anyway!)

Research the Goddesses on Wikipedia and see who's calling you

Call on Archangel Michael to help you clear and heal your fears

Try a cord cutting ritual (grab my Cord-Cutting Kit here!)


Go outside when it's dark and just sit and absorb the moon's energy

Look out your window and talk to her like she's a (very, very) very old friend

Do a past life regression or a past life reading

Play with Moonstone or Selenite

Full Moon Releasing Spread

I've been on this spread creation binge for a while now and I thought I'd add in a little something for your Full Moon this month! How's about a Full Moon Releasing Spread?! :D 

While the New Moon is a great time for manifesting, the Full Moon is a perfect opportunity to release some of that stuff you've been dragging around. You can also use this spread any time you've got some releasing to do!

So grab your Tarot, Oracle, Angel or Uno cards and a nice big hot cup of tea and let's play!

I'm gonna double up on this one and use both the Cosmic Tarot and Doreen Virtue's Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards, because the Full Moon is a pretty awesome time to connect with some Goddess energy

Oh and check the video below to see it in action! x


1. You Are Here

This card is like your anchor. Where are you? Why are you here right now pulling these cards? What's going on for you in your life right now?

I pulled Sekhmet - Be Strong and the Devil Reversed. OK, so I know for me this spread is gonna be about releasing a bunch of old patterns and ways of thinking and being. Finally I'm letting the grip of this stuff go and it's a time for me to finally be able to stay in my power with this stuff! Rarrr!


2. Release

Pretty straight forward - this is the big thing to be releasing this Full Moon, or whenever you're doing this spread. Let this thing go, it no longer serves you babe.

I got Ishtar - Boundaries and Three of Wands. In the Cosmic Tarot I always see this chic on the Three of Wands as just being totally content, connected and happy doing what she's doing. It's like just chilling out with your inner peace while you wait for your abundance truck. The Ishtar card here is like - Vix, in order to keep staying in your peace place you've got to set better boundaries. Release the idea that you have to do everything for everyone and please everyone all the time. Totally!


3. Lessons

Releasing is all about looking back. Checking out what no longer serves you and what you can finally get rid of. It's like clearing out your closet, looking at each item, remembering those times you wore it and then deciding you're done with it. When we're looking back it's great to check out the Lessons and Blessings that this old stuff has brought you. Don't be like - urgh, this thing is shit! Take some time with these next two cards to see what awesome things you can take away from where you've been.

I got Cordelia - Go Otuside and the Five of Swords. This is a little bit like burnout energy here for me. It's true, I have been burning myself out and not giving myself enough time for my own Vix things. New Age Hipster is basically my life right now, but I know I have to avoid burnout by setting better boundaries, getting outside and chilling the eff out a bit more. I've definitely learnt this lesson though, so hoorah! Hey, it's still a work in progress, but I've come a long way!


4. Blessings

Blessings are often not seen as blessings at the time. Sometimes these are the things that only later appear to be blessings, but at the time really piss you off. You know, blessings in disguise and all that. This is the moment to look back now and see those obstacles for what they really were

I got Aeracura - Blossoming and Two of Pentacles. Sometimes not knowing WTF to do is a blessing. It creates space and time for the universe to do it's work and it helps you to cultivate plans, ideas, patience and peace. For me this is about not pushing things to happen, but rather being open to divine timing and letting things blossom when the time is right. Sometimes feeling stuck is a blessing. It stops you pursuing the wrong thing and taking you way too far down the wrong path. 


5. Dream

This is your dream! This is where you can potentially get to if you can get to this releasing party and really make the most of it. What do you really want? What does your heart and soul really want

I got Ostara - Fertility and The Star. Uh, OK so The Star is like - yeah, my dream is to be super shiny and to help other people be super shiny too! I just wanna spread starshine all over the place! Wheeee! Also for me, giving birth to my creative dreams is HUGE. 


6. Big Step

This is like the big thing that you need to do so you can reach your dreams! It's kind of like the long term stuff. The 12 month, or maybe longer, plan. 

I got Brigit - Don't Back Down and The Lovers Reversed. This for me is like keep trucking, keep following these dreams (for as long as you want to!) but also putting equal amounts of energy into my relationships and my love life! Don't be all work and no play Vix! Stop telling everyone else to have a great work/life balance if you can't. Be authentic, practice what you preach and all that stuff.


7. Next Step

This is the thing to focus on next. Well, after you've had this releasing party. Don't rush through the releasing stuff to get to the next step or you're going to wobble. Take some notes on this one, but don't stress out about it today. Focus on the release and start putting this into practice after a good night's sleep.

I got Mary Magdalene - Unconditional Love and King of Pentacles Reversed. Pretty obviously it's like focus on service and not on cash money. But also it feels like another message about boundaries (did you get any themes in your spread?!)! Love yourself first. Gah, that's a hard one isn't it? Fill your own cup first. 


Come say hi on Social Media, hashtag #newagehipster so I can find you and your spreads and let me know how you go with this one! I hope it helps you!
