The recent talk about eclipses has got people wondering how they can use the eclipse energy to their advantage. Luckily, some lunar eclipse rituals can be done during the Blood Moon or Lunar Moon Eclipse to magnify the eclipse’s energy.
Before diving into the blood moon eclipse rituals, it’s important to understand what an eclipse is. Eclipses are extremely powerful new moons and full moons, which can help us realign with our soul’s purpose and correct our personal path when necessary. Every year, there are two to three eclipse seasons, during which the sun, moon, and nodes align.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow). It occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned, with Earth between the other two.
A lunar eclipse can occur only on the night of a full moon. The type and length of a lunar eclipse depend on how closely the moon passes through Earth’s shadow.
There are three types of lunar eclipses: total, partial, and penumbral. The most dramatic type is a total eclipse, in which the Moon turns red as it is completely immersed in Earth’s umbra.
A partial eclipse occurs when only a portion of the Moon enters Earth’s umbra.
A penumbral eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through Earth’s penumbral shadow.
A lunar eclipse is a powerful spiritual event when the veils between the physical and spiritual worlds are thinned, and we can more easily access the wisdom of the Cosmos.
The energy of a lunar eclipse can be used for personal and planetary transformation. A lunar eclipse is a time of release, of letting go of that which no longer serves us. It is also a time of new beginnings, of planting the seeds of our intentions for the future.
The lunar eclipse on November 8, 2022, is a time to start fresh with new opportunities. The weeks surrounding the eclipse are ideal for meeting new people, starting new hobbies and projects, and setting your intentions for the life changes you desire.

November 8, 2022, Lunar Eclipse Rituals
Here are the top 7 rituals for the Beaver Blood Moon Eclipse—also known as the total lunar eclipse you can do to amplify your intentions:
As the moon waxes and wanes in its cyclical journey, it periodically lines up with the sun and earth creating spectacular eclipses. It is a powerful spiritual moment when the veil between the physical and metaphysical worlds thins. One way to mark this occasion is to take a spiritual bath to cleanse the body and soul and prepare for new beginnings.
Use pure, clean water. This can be rainwater, spring water, or even distilled water. Add any other ingredients you feel called to use, such as sea salt, fresh herbs, or essential oils.
As you add each ingredient, visualize it infusing the water with its properties. For example, if you are using salt, visualize the water becoming purified and cleansed.
Once the water is ready, step into the tub and relax. Focus on your breath and let go of any thoughts or worries weighing on you.
Stay in the tub for as long as you like, then gently pat yourself dry with a clean towel.
Set an intention
A lunar eclipse is a powerful time to set intentions for the future. This is a time to let go of what’s no longer serving you and make space for what you truly want.
Start by getting clear on what you want. Write it down or say it out loud. Then, let go of any attachments to the outcome and trust that whatever is meant to be will be.
Finally, take some time to visualize your intention coming to fruition. See yourself living your best life, surrounded by love and abundance.
Feel the joy and happiness that comes with achieving your goals. Allow yourself to really feel the energy of what you desire. The more you can feel it, the more likely it is to manifest.
Trust that the universe has your back and know that anything is possible.
The lunar eclipse in 2022 is a powerful time to meditate, as the moon’s energy is amplified. Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down. You may light a candle or incense to set the mood. Focus on your breath. Inhale and exhale slowly and deeply. As you breathe, imagine the energy of the moon entering your body and filling you with peace and calm.
Lastly, let your mind wander. Don’t try to force it to focus on anything in particular. Let your thoughts come and go as they please.
Relax and let go. The more you can do this, the more you will benefit from the experience. If your mind wanders, bring it back to your breath. Over time, you will find that it becomes easier and easier to focus on the present moment. Enjoy the peace and tranquility that the lunar eclipse has to offer!
A burning ritual during a lunar eclipse can be a powerful way to release old habits, patterns, and emotions that no longer serve you. A lunar eclipse burning ritual can also be used to manifest your deepest desires and intentions.
First, if possible, cleanse your space and yourself with sage smoke. Then, write down what you wish to release on paper. Get specific about what you are releasing. Next, light the paper on fire and drop it into the fire-proof container. Watch as the paper burns and imagine the old habit, pattern, or emotion leaving your body. As the fire burns out, say your intention or prayer out loud. Then, use the bowl of water to extinguish the remaining embers. Finally, cleanse your space again with sage smoke or Palo Santo. You can also use the Selenite crystal to clear any residual energy. Then, leave the fire-proof container outside overnight so that the moon can absorb the released energy.
For manifestation, lunar eclipses are powerful tools that can help you to achieve your goals. By harnessing the energy of the eclipse, you can supercharge your manifestation efforts and see results more quickly. To do so, focus on what you want to achieve, rather than what you don’t want. Be as specific as possible when visualizing your goals. The more specific you can be, the better. This will help to attract exactly what you want, and nothing else. Finally, let go of your visualization once you have done it. This may be the most difficult part, but it is important to remember that you are not in control of the universe. Once you have sent your intention out into the universe, trust that it will be handled perfectly, and at the perfect time.
Lunar eclipses offer a unique opportunity to reflect on our lives and be grateful for what we have. Gratitude journaling is a great way to do this. It allows us to take a step back from our busy lives and reflect on what we are thankful for. It can be easy to take our blessings for granted, but when we take the time to write them down, we are reminded of just how lucky we are.
Another powerful lunar eclipse ritual is charity. It is believed that giving charity during a lunar eclipse repels the negative consequences and removes evil. Moreover, the person doing the deed of charity will be blessed with happiness and prosperity.
