Sagittarius Full Moon Ritual: Hips Don’t Lie

Even when the world feels hopeless, there’s still possibility. This Sagittarius full moon ritual buoys our faith in the universe.

Sagittarius is the zodiac’s traveler, helping us expand our horizons in every way. Will you journey to new corners of the globe? Diversify your friend circles? Start an independent venture or a new course of study? Here are some Sagittarius full moon ritual ideas to try.

Sagittarius Full Moon Ritual: Hip Circles

There’s truth to that Shakira song—hips don’t lie! In fact, they wind up being the energetic storehouse for our emotions and our deepest vulnerabilities. When we experience fear or trauma, we naturally clench the pelvic region. The trouble is, we can also forget to relax and release this area of our bodies, which can remain tightly bound (even for years!).

Honest, high-minded Sagittarius is associated with the hips—the area of the body that houses our second, or sacral, chakra. This chakra is the energy center for our emotions, sexuality and our intuition. There’s good reason to loosen up this area of the body. It keeps us in the flow with our feelings and in touch with our truths.

On a physical level, healthy hips also ground core strength and help with posture. And let’s be honest—a sway of the hips is an undeniable sign of sexual confidence.

This Sagittarius Full moon ritual is a simple one that can be shockingly powerful

You might do this exercise in front of a mirror to connect to your reflection. Play a song that makes you want to move your hips and dance. Soften your knees and circle your hips around and around, as if hula-hooping. Do this for at least one minute, but longer is definitely beneficial.

As you circle, bring full attention to your pelvic region. Emotions may bubble up—perhaps sexual ones or blocked anger from ignoring your intuition. Continue to circle, allowing the feelings to spiral out with each revolution.

When the song ends, journal about what arose for you. Or, keep the dance party going!

You can also do this exercise in a chair, circling your hips while seated. If you’re like a lot of people still working from home, you won’t have any coworkers to wonder what you’re doing!

Consider doing hip circles for 3-5 minutes daily until the next new moon. Loose lips may sink ships but loose hips can liberate your soul!
