This month, we welcome a micromoon full moon, one of the smallest full moons of the year. So, let's delve into what a micromoon is and what it means to hold a full moon ritual during a micromoon.

Next Micro Full moon Dates (AEST): 24 Feb 2024 at 10:00 pm and  Micro Full Moon 25 Mar there is also a Micro New Moon: 3 Oct.

The micromoon, with its delicate presence, invites us to find depth in the quiet moments, appreciating the profound potential within the seemingly small and subtle. And with the Autumn Equinox around the corner in March, a time when there is an equal amount of light and dark present in a day, it's all about balance. So, right now is powerful time to rebalance, restore, and refocus your energy.

What is a Micromoon:

First, let's understand what a micromoon means. A micromoon occurs when the full moon coincides with its apogee, the farthest point from Earth in its orbit. This unique celestial event makes the moon appear slightly smaller in the night sky. Differing from the grandeur of a supermoon.

What does a Micromoon mean spiritually:

The micromoon, with its subtler radiance, encourages us to embrace the beauty of simplicity and find spiritual depth in moments often overlooked. In a world that often celebrates grand gestures, the micromoon invites us to appreciate the profound potential within the quiet and unassuming corners of our lives. It symbolises a time for introspection, personal growth, and a deepening connection with our inner selves.

Ceremonial Cacao and Herbal Recipe for the Micro Full Moon:

During powerful moon phases, I love adding herbal infusions to my cacao recipes to help heighten my meditation or encourage more depth to consciousness. White sage is my favorite herb to add to a full moon recipe, but for this micromoon phase, I've chosen to include peppermint as well. Find out why below.


  • 30-40 grams of ceremonial cacao
  • 1.5 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon dried white sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried peppermint or 1 teabag of peppermint tea


  1. Place 1 cup of water on the stovetop on low heat.
  2. Once hot, add your 30 grams of ceremonial cacao.
  3. Meanwhile, boil about half a cup of water and pour it into a mug.
  4. Add the white sage and peppermint the half a cup of boiled water, allowing it to steep for 3 minutes.
  5. Then strain your tea and add it to your cacao on the stovetop.
  6. Stir them together until combined and continue to whisk them to create a creamier texture, allowing the flavours and energies to meld.
  7. Simply pour your drink into your mug or jar and prepare for your ceremony or meditation below.

Why White Sage:

White sage is renowned for its ability to dispel negative vibrations and cleanse energies. In your micromoon ceremony, it serves as a mental clarifier, aiding in the purification of energetic patterns.

Why Peppermint:

Peppermint, historically used in temples for its cleansing properties, acts as a bell for mental clarity and prophetic visions. In your ceremony, it brings a refreshing aspect, cleansing the mind to see and notice the smaller things in life, making space for messages and guidance to drop in.

Burning Rosemary:

While optional, burning rosemary is a common practice as it serves as smoke medicine to purify and cleanse energies, providing a fresh start to your ritual. I usually burn white sage, but since we are using it in the cacao tea, it's nice to add another element.
