Your 2021 Taurus Lunar Eclipse Ritual
The lunar nodes bring a fated energy to an eclipse, which lasts months after the actual eclipse date. At this time, using a Lunar eclipse ritual to connect with ourselves and the Moon is a great way to harness the power of the skies.
Here’s a ritual to help all zodiac signs deal with anxiety and mental unrest this eclipse season.
Step 1: Introspection
Taurus being an Earth sign puts a spotlight on matters of security and stability. On the days leading up to the eclipse, take some time out to go within.
Ask yourself – “What are the themes that are currently playing out in my life this Scorpio month?”
In addition to material security, astrologically speaking, what other aspects of your life are being impacted by this Lunar eclipse? Journal your thoughts and set intentions for what or who you’d like to “eclipse” out of your life.
Step 2: Shamanic Drumming Sound Bath
Shamanic drumming has an incredible effect on our energy field, particularly on our Root chakra. What’s more, the earthy low pitch beats aptly represent the Earth sign of Taurus.
Start your eclipse day morning with shamanic drumming beats.
For 20 minutes, visualize the sound beats penetrating every cell in your body and renewing it with high-frequency energy. Add in any affirmations which remind you of your innate power.
This gives an instant mood boost and sets the tone for navigating eclipse day and any unexpected sudden changes. You might also burn sage, Palo Santo, or Frankincense to enhance this ritual.
Step 3: Ritual Moon-Water Bath
What on Earth is a Moon-water bath?
A Moon-water bath is an immensely effective way to harness the power of the Moon and release negativity from your life. While for most signs, this is a potent way to cleanse your energy field, Earth and Water signs can find tremendous benefit from this ritual.
Preparing Moon Water
- Leave a pail of regular tap water overnight out in the moonlight, a few days before the eclipse.
- Place a crystal or two—try using amethyst, rose quartz, selenite, or clear quartz—next to the pail of water.
- Add an intention to this practice.
The Moon Bath
On the evening of the eclipse, set the mood for spiritual self-care with candles and incense sticks, and your charged crystals.
Clear your energy field and step into your Moon bath.
Visualize this Moon water to help you release fears and limiting beliefs from within your subconscious. Ask yourself: What is preventing me from becoming the best version of myself?
Finally, end your bath by visualizing your mind, body, and soul being supercharged with transformational positive vibes.
We recommend you repeat this three-step ritual for a week after the eclipse if needed.
