Invoking the Supermoon – Creating Lunar Eclipse Intention Incense — Spirit de la Lune
This Supermoon is also a Lunar Eclipse! This will intensify our emotions even more while bringing us new revelations and insight. Lunar Eclipses also have the ability to bring us life-altering news, so expect the unexpected with this one!
A Lunar Eclipse is when the Sun is opposite the Moon, this lets us take a look into our emotions and close relationships in a different way, with fresh eyes and a new perspective. You might feel overly aware of the imbalances in your life on top of your enhanced sensitivity. The Moon is also square Uranus, which can cause moodiness, impatience and impulsive reactions.
This is also the Sage Moon according to the Spirit de la Lune Deck and Planner. Each Full Moons has varying names according to different cultures throughout history. This month, according to our system marks this as the Sage Moon. A time of cleansing and making way for the potential growth that lies ahead.
Remember that major shifts are taking place… this can open you up for so much growth ahead. Trust this Divine Cosmic Energy and allow it to transform you. Get proper rest and don’t forget to stay hydrated!
Lunar Eclipse Intention Incense
Honor the Sage Moon Lunar Eclipse by creating your own intention incense to invoke the energies you want in your life.
You will need:
- Whole bay leaves… as many as you need
- Herbs associated with the current sign or whatever aligns with your intentions
- Mortar & Pestle (If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can use the bottom of a coffee mug over a wooden cutting board, or use ziplock back and a rolling pin!)
- Cauldron or a fireproof container for burning.
Herbs for Cancer:
- Lemon balm
Herbs for Leo:
- Sunflower petals
Bay leaves are known as ‘Witch’s Note Paper’ and have long been used in spell work!
In ancient times, bay leaves were even eaten by the Oracles of Delphi before giving divination.
Bay leaves are used to enhance psychic powers strengthen intentions and give protection to the user.
You can use almost any type of pen to write your intentions on the leaves too. (Add extra power to your intentions by using a blessed or moon-lit charged pen!)
Using your mortar & pestle, grind up your bay leaves. Keep your intentions and goals in mind as you grind your herbs and create your incense.
If you need to grind your other herbs, empty the bay leaves out first. Yes, you’ll be mixing the herbs together, but it will grind easier with less in the bowl.
Mix the bay leaves with the other herbs of your choice and store in an airtight jar.
(Remember you can use a zip-lock bag and rolling pin for this if you don’t have a mortar & pestle)
During the Eclipse, burn them on your altar in a cauldron or other fire-safe container.
You can use a charcoal tablet to help it burn longer. (Here’s a great guide!)
Watch the smoke to drift towards the heavens carrying your intentions and wishes.
Cleanse your energy in the smoke. Clear and purify your decks and crystals with it. Allow it to burn on your altar to charge your intention and focus the energies you are wanting to bring into your life.
While the incense burns and does it’s work, try one of these visualizations under the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse!
What a beautiful & powerful way to kick off the New Year! A Super Moon is what happens when the moon is closer to the earth than normal making her appear larger in the sky. This event can intensify our emotions, enhance our intuition, and can even bring about unexpected news or events. Th
