You can make this Full Moon Crystal Grid to harness the power and energy of the Full Moon. Enhance your Full Moon Rituals with these lunar crystals. Includes a gratitude ritual and free printable crystal grid template.
The Full Moon & You
The Full Moon occurs around once every 29 days. A true Full Moon is when it is 100% full and appears as a perfect circle in the sky. This can be seen as when the Moon’s energy is at maximum and at its most strong. You don’t need to see the Full Moon to feel it’s effects though.
The Full Moon is used in a variety of ways by different people. You could look at it is an all-purpose day for all spiritual work. It can be cleansing or add power to what you do. The Full Moon can also be seen as a climax in the lunar cycle, representing completion.
In astrology, it is seen as the day that shines a light on issues and can bring up things that have been repressed or not dealt with properly. Astrologers will also look at what sign of the zodiac it occurs in to see which area of our life it affects the most (eg. Full Moon in Gemini).
You can see what Astrologers have to say about each Full Moon on youtube, blogs or a website like Moonology.com if you’re interested. The Astrologer, Yasmin Boland also has a very comprehensive guide to working with all the phases of the Moon in her book Moonology.
How you work with the Full Moon is really up to you, here are just a few ideas below.
Use The Full Moon Phase To:
Charge/infuse any object with lunar energy
Acknowledge and release what is holding you back
Think about what you have accomplished this month
Express grattitude for your life’s blessings
Forgive people who have hurt you
Manifest something you need
Work through your fears
Review your life or goals and make changes
Cleanse your home
Enhance your psychic ability
Do some divination
Full Moon Times
Some printed calendars show the Full Moon days and even times but make sure the days and times are for your country as it varies. If you want to be precise, check a good Moon app or website (like Deluxe Moon) to see if the Moon is 100% full. I find their app is really handy.
TIP: Mark the days of the Full Moon on on your calendar and or planner with a circle symbol.
What Are Full Moon Rituals?
Full Moon Rituals are anything that you do on the Full Moon to work with these energies and often involve a small ceremony, writing down your intentions or saying affirmations. Lots of people like to use this time to create a crystal grid. My Full Moon Crystal Grid can be used to further anchor the lunar energies and work with them towards your intention.
“Full Moon Rituals are completely personal and may reflect your spiritual ideas and beliefs. There is no right or wrong way to do them.“
Think About Your Intention
Think about how you wish to use the energy of the next Full Moon. It is a good idea to plan this and be clear on what your intention is. The Full Moon Crystal Grid can be customised to suit your needs, the following is just a suggestion.
Full Moon Gratitude Ritual
We often only look at what we want or what is not going well for us. Gratitude practices force us to have a more positive and balanced look at our lives. Regular gratitude rituals or practices help us develop a more positive mindset and are one of the secrets used by successful people who are good at manifesting. By being more grateful we attract more of what we want and the Full Moon helps us with this.
On the day of the Full Moon take some quiet time to write a list of all that you are grateful for in your life. It could be something little or as big as you like. The simple things may be all we have but are what keeps us going as long as we appreciate them. Think about each thing on your list and really feel thankful. You will use this list when you set up the crystal grid. Here is an example of a gratitude list:
I am grateful for…
The support of my family
My days off last week
Living near the woods
My new coat
Having my health
The herbs in my garden
Having access to the internet
Thank You, thank you, thank you.
The Flower of Life Symbol
My Full Moon Crystal Grid uses the Flower Of Life symbol. This sacred geometry symbol can be used for all purposes, it connects you with the Universe and supports manifesting. You can use your own flower of life crystal grid base/cloth or print off the template given later in this article.
What You Will Need:
1 Medium or large Selenite
Selenite also known as Satin Spar is a lunar crystal that deeply cleanses stuck energy and raises your vibration. I am using a Selenite Sphere with a stand but you could use other forms like a Selenite Tower, Crystal Point, Obelisk or Pyramid. If Selenite is unavailable you could use Snow Quartz (aka Milky Quartz or White Quartz), a Standing Candle Quartz Crystal Point or Clear Quartz.
3 Moonstone Tumble Stones
Moonstone is the stone of the Moon, it brings emotional balance and supports new beginnings. These stones can be substituted with White Opal or Girasol.
3 Rainbow Moonstone Tumble Stones
Rainbow Moonstone is also known as White Labradorite. High vibration Rainbow Moonstone helps develop your intuition and anchors lunar energy. These crystals could be substituted with Merlinite (Dendritic Agate/Chalcedony) or Larvikite.
12 Clear Quartz Crystal Points
Clear Quartz brings clarity, focus and amplifies the grid. These crystals could be substituted with Clear Quartz Tumble Stones if unavailable or alternate between both shapes. Alternatively, you could use 6 Crystal Points, missing every other point.
A Flower Of Life Crystal Grid Base, Cloth or Template
Please see below for more information.
Using a Crystal Grid Template
I have a created a FREE printable Crystal Grid Template that you can download and print yourself if you want. You don’t need to sign up for anything. Just click the link below to download the PDF file. You can then print it out on some paper or card.
TIP: You could trace the Flower of Life symbol with a silver pen for added lunar energy.
Alternatively, you can use your own Flower Of Life cloth, printout or base. I got my wooden Flower Of Life grid base from Coppermoon Boutique.
TIP: Enhance Your Ritual With Sacred Scent
This is an optional extra step. Sacred scent helps create an environment that supports your intentions. Jasmine is associated with the Full Moon, it helps attract what you want. You could add a drop of natural pure (or dilute) essential oil to an oil burner or diffuser before you begin your ritual. Alternitively burn natural Jasmine incense.
Simple Crystal Grid Activation
If you already know how to activate a Crystal Grid, feel free to use your prefered method. Otherwise, to keep things nice and easy, I am going to show you a really simple method to activate the grid which does not use an Activation Wand. Activation programs or charges the crystals with your intention, so they can begin to do their work for you.
Before you begin, make sure you write your gratitude list. Or create your own list of things you want to let go of or people you want to forgive for example. As this is part of a Full Moon Ritual I recommend that you read these lists out loud three times. Then fold the paper up twice so it will fit under the central stone.
How To Activate Your Full Moon Crystal Grid:
1. Hold all your cleansed crystals and the note in your hands (or work in batches).
2. Close your eyes and take three deep breaths.
3. Raise your crystals up in front of your Third Eye Chakra (brow area).
4. Focus on your desired intention, use visualisation and emotion. Say to yourself or out loud a statement of your intention. For example with a gratitude ritual you could say: “I program this crystal grid to support me in manifesting more blessings in my life”.
5. Lastly, arrange your crystals into position (see below).
Setting Up Your Crystal Grid:
Now that your crystals are programmed and charged with your intention, all you have to do is arrange them. Use a flat surface that will not be easily disturbed. Please see the diagram above.
(1) The Selenite goes into the centre, on top of your folded note.
(2) Then the three Moonstone Tumble Stones* can be placed around it, forming a triangle.
(3) Then the three Rainbow Moonstone Tumble Stones can be placed around it, forming a triangle.
(4) Lastly, the twelve Clear Quartz Crystal Points should be placed around the edge, pointing outwards.
*If you have other shapes or forms of any of these crystals other than Tumble Stones, feel free to use them.
Your Full Moon Crystal Grid will be left in place as a constant reminder of what you are grateful for or your intentions and goals. Most people leave these grids up for a month, until the next Full Moon. They will either finish with the grid, keep it going or start with a new or updated gratitude list or intentions. I recommend you cleanse the crystals if you want to keep the grid going.
If adding new intentions you should also deprogram the crystals (see below) and reprogram them again as part of your new Full Moon Ritual.
When you have finished with your Full Moon Crystal Grid, remove the crystals and cleanse them. Remember to deprogram all the crystals before using them again for anything else. See my article on How To Deprogram a Crystal for more info.
