I have a special connection with the moon. The full moon is coming right up and I would like to do a ritual to show it gratitude and give her thanks. Does anyone know of a ritual I can perform by myself, or with others? Thank you.
On the night of the full moon, go outside (if you can) or go to a window that you can see the moon through. Allow yourself to feel her energy and then raise up an offering to her (I usually make crescent cakes for this). Say a chant or something about how she is a large part of your life and that you want to thank her for her presence or something along those lines. What you say and what you do to show her thanks is really up to you and what you think is best.
Scott Cunningham also has a pretty good full moon ritual in his book Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner. I found a link to a copy of it - the ritual. I added the link for you.
There are dozens of rituals thanking and recognizing the moon as there are many cultures, traditions, and paths that work with the moon.
However I suggest you work with the energy of the gravitational pull of the moon to direct you as to how you should thank the moon.
It would be ritual personally fitted for you, something you would feel in your gut.
well, there's a ritual it's called drawing down the moon, it draws the moon goddess selene down into your body, some say you have to take your clothes off in order to do this ritual but if you are uncomfortable doing that or afraid someone will see you then just keep your clothes on, then while you are outside draw down the energy from the moon into you, and draw down its light and positive powers, and once you are done with that you have the moon goddess within you and you can cast any spell associating with the moon. the ritual is a good cleansing power, it's great for feeling good or preforming other spells.
