Hawthorn May Full Moon Ritual

Full Moon blessings! This month’s full moon brings in super positive energy, discover how you can ride this wave of possibility and elevate your life! Here is a full moon ritual for you. To learn more about the magickal power of Hawthorn do see my previous blog HERE.

To take part you will need:

A small branch or sprig of hawthorn (if not available, use hawthorn berries or look at a photo of the tree online)

A white candle

A bowl of water

A small piece of paper and a pen

A fireproof dish or cauldron

Optional: incense (such as sage or lavender) and crystals (like moonstone or clear quartz), the Ace of Wands and the Lovers Tarot Cards.


How to perform a May Full Moon Ritual:

Choose a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed.

Cleanse the area by burning incense or using another purification method, such as sprinkling salt or spraying a mist of water infused with essential oils. Be sure to cleanse all of the items that you are using too.


Set Up Your Altar:

Place the white candle in the center and light it.

Position the bowl of water in front of the candle.

Place the hawthorn sprig (and optional tarot cards) next to the bowl. If you are using a photo, imagine the energy of the plant infusing the water by imaging a green light flow from the imagine to the water .)

If using crystals, arrange them around the candle.


Ground and Center Yourself:

Take a few deep breaths to calm your mind and center yourself.

Invoke Archangel Uriel and Archeia Aurora (the angels of May) to protect you.

Place your hands on your heart and say three times:

“Archangel Uriel and Archeia Aurora
I invoke your light to stand here before me
Fire of the Divine, resurrection of light,
Guide my steps, make my way bright.
Shield me with love, both day and night”.

Visualise their golden orange and yellow light descending upon you.

Take the hawthorn sprig and dip it into the bowl of water.

Sprinkle a few drops of the water around your space, saying: “With the blessings of the hawthorn, I cleanse and protect this space.”

Light the candle.

While (carefully) facing the direction of the flame take the piece of paper and write down any intentions, wishes, or things you wish to release.

Hold the paper over your heart and focus on your intentions, infusing them with positive energy.

Say the following words:


“Under the light of the full moon glow,

with my energy I plant and sow,

good intentions come to light,

by the power of the moon upon this night. So be it”


Light the piece of paper with the candle flame and place it in the fireproof dish. As it burns, visualize your intentions being released into the universe.

Take a moment to express gratitude to the hawthorn tree, the full moon, and the archangels Uriel and Aurora.

Say: “Thank you for your guidance and protection. So be it.”

Allow the candle to burn down fully. Meditate with the crystals in your left hand for the next three days while imagining your dream a reality.
