Be Your Own Parent || A Full Moon in Taurus Ritual and Intuitive Tarot Message
by Kirsten Renee
“It was worth it then, it is worth it now and it’s going to be worth it.”
- Full Moon Affirmation
Recently I’ve been having a lot of conversations about parenting and backgrounds. As people we tend to forget that at some point we become responsible for our own selves. As children it was our parents or guardians responsibilities to care for us and to make sure that we were fed, had clothes, went to school, etc. it was their job to make sure that we had the basic life necessities. Those moments as children have led us into our adult years and now some of those ways need to be rewritten for many reasons. First of all, you’re the ONLY one that is responsible for yourself now and if that scares you that’s fine. Don’t let that fear stop you from doing what needs to be done though. Maybe you didn’t have the best childhood or your parents didn’t teach you how to be a functioning person. It’s now on you to correct whatever trauma they placed upon you or you can keep dysfunctional cycles going.
It’s never too late to change your narrative or find yourself seeking solid ground, it’s okay. The great thing about The Universe and Goddess is that when you put in the work, the reward comes. You’re the best partner you have so don’t sabotage yourself due to fear and laziness. Your most important job should be the care and love that you have for yourself. If you’re not well in every way then how do you expect for anything to get done. You’ve got bills to pay, you’ve got work to do and some of y’all have children of your own to care for. You’ve got responsibility to yourself to make sure that you live the BEST life that you want. Do yourself a favor and show up when you need to.
Growth comes with the understanding that you’re going to go through shit. You’re going to be pushed down and it’s probably going to hurt. . . A lot. You’re also going to be triumphant and joyful because of the new heights you will reach. Becoming who you are means accepting who you are not and once you realize that you will be able to accept the change that comes. Move forward knowing that the life that you want is full and rich. You’re the best thing that could happen to your goals and life’s purpose. Everything must be balanced in order to even out the playing field. You’ve got to feel the sadness with the happy, go from wet to dry, be hungry and full. Every action has a reaction and with that you make the choice of what outcome you are willing to accept. What are you doing that is aiding what it is that you want? Align your actions with your deepest desires and you’ll be sure to reach your goals.
Intuitive Tarot Message
The High Priestess (Reversed) + 6 of Swords
In order to move forward you must learn discipline and patience. Whether you’re wanting to move forward in your career, relationship or in whatever placement you are in life. When it comes to juggling life and all of the components that come with it. Life can be overwhelming and the simple fact that you’re alive should motivate you to not get stressed by it. You’ve got time to do what needs to be done, you just have to make it happen. Growth and moving forward through life is a direct result of the choices we make. If you’re wanting to run your own business but you’re not putting any work in your “business” will be just an idea.
The way that you move behind the ideas and goals you create is what makes it happen. The universe influences what moves, it aids the motions that we create for ourselves. You’re not going to get the help you want without putting in some work. True elevation starts with recognizing in order to see what’s next you’ve got to leave things behind. Like the snake sheds so do you and it’s okay for you to want that for yourself. There’s nothing wrong with change or being someone new, you can reinvent yourself as many times as you see fit. Just be sure that you’re doing it all for yourself and not to fit any one else’s ideals of who you should be.
Full Moon Tarot Spread + Ritual
October’s Full Moon ritual is very simple and can be done during the day or night! I personally enjoy doing my moon rituals right before the sun comes up, I like the in between light and dark. This ritual will be focusing on what actions we need to take in order to align with our desires. This ritual is super simple and doesn’t require a lot of items, nor do you have to do anything elaborate.
What you’ll need
Your favorite pen
A warm drink
Your favorite crystals
An open heart
Make sure that you’re in a quiet space and somewhere you won’t be disturbed by anyone. Do whatever you need in order to quiet your mind and connect to spirit. During this time you can shuffle your deck, meditate, do yoga, dance, etc. anything that helps bring you closer to source and allow you to be open with yourself.
During this spread you’re going to focus on six questions;
Full Moons are a great time to release things and step into new phases. Life is all about moving forward and allowing ourselves the chance to face what we keep hidden. The things that go bump in our hearts and what we know can no longer be a part of our world. Growth means to uproot at times and that can be scary, during ritual allow those fears to be removed as well. You are infinite and alive, you are deserving of everything you wish to create.
You can do your full moon ritual any way you want to! You can mix around my steps and even skip them if they don’t resonate with what you’re doing! This particular banishing ritual has no time limit and can be done at any time. Whenever you need to get through something fire magick is a great tool to utilize!
Step 1: Ground yourself - Sit in silence, call out to whatever entity you connect and have a relationship with.

Invision each thing fading into the unknown as you watch your paper burn!
If you can’t use fire, you can write the list on toilet paper and flush it!
Step 3: Give thanks your spirit guides/angels/ancestors for hearing you and guiding you.
Step 4: Eat something light, dance around, take a shower, or do something relaxing!
This ritual is super simple, you can add your own steps or just do this one! No matter what you do this Full Moon in Taurus remember that you are infinite and deserving. No matter if you do ritual, practice sex magick or even just decide to do nothing your magick is potent!
