Day 4: Goddess Spa Day
Moon Phase: Full Moon
Tarot Card: Empress
Stones: Amethyst, Aquamarine, Moonstone, Rose Quartz
"I love myself completely. I am open to receiving my love. I honor and nourish myself as the Goddess I am, every day to the best of my ability!"
Set aside at least one day during your Moon-time to pamper and treat yourself as the Goddess you are! This could mean taking yourself out on a "me-date," buying yourself flowers or a sweet gift. Booking a massage, or pedicure, or making your own bath salt like below. Do something to remind yourself of your own beauty, and do not feel guilty!
Doing this will recharge your soul so you can keep giving back. The love Goddess Venus/Aphrodite is a great ally to work with and build a relationship with. Honoring and growing a relationship with her in turn builds more self-love and respect. And we could all use a little more of that, especially on our Moon-times!
To make your own spa day, why not treat yourself to a nice hot bath? Set a date and time you won't be disturbed, and honor that time for yourself. You are worth it!

To make your own bath salt, start with the recipe above. You can add Rose quartz into the mix, or replace the sea salt for Pink Himalayan Salt as well. While mixing it, imagine pink or green (for the heart chakra) light pouring from you into the bath salt while focusing on your affirmations or anything loving about yourself. Set the mood for your bath time with candles, music, incense, and luxurious robe—anything that makes you feel like a Goddess! Make this romantic for yourself.
Venus Spa Bath:
- 1 cup sea salt
- 2 table spoons sweet almond oil
- 5 drop lavender essential oil
- 2 table spoons rose water
- 5 drops ylang ylang essential oil
- dried rose petals or rose buds
Surround your tub with rose quartz, moonstone, and seashells . While pouring the mixture and before stepping in, say a little thank you to Venus/Aphrodite for reminding you that you a Goddess and deserve to pamper yourself! Invoke the energy of Venus or the Empress within you and then relax and soak in the love!
If you do not have a tub, convert this recipe into a scrub (add oil to the consistency you like). While you are scrubbing, imagine you are absorbing the love through your pores and releasing any negative energy. Compliment each body part as you scrub each area with love and tenderness. You will feel so rejuvenated and calm afterwards.
While you are soaking in the tub, why not brew your own tea? There are so many herbs to research and explore, this is but a handful I have found that are not too hard to come by for the everyday woman. I encourage you to drink as much water and herbal teas as you can to soothe and cleanse during your Moon-time. Please be safe while making your own teas and using non-toxic herbs!
Moon-time tea Recipe:
- 1 part organic Lady's Mantle

Lady's mantle and raspberry leaf help to regulate your cycle, control excessbleeding//cramping//PMS symptoms, while hibiscus flower helps with bloating and gives a beautiful deep red/pink color in honor of our flow. It is tart, so add honey to taste if you like.
