A Moon Magick Ritual For Calm

A Moon Magick Ritual For Calm

* Wait until the Moon is moving towards full, and is quite bright in the sky.
* Find somewhere as dark as possible so the light is undiluted and slowly ‘inhale’ the light through your nose, looking at the Moon and drawing its light towards you.
* Hold your Moon breath for a count of ‘One and two and three’. Remember to say the ‘ands’ to stop yourself rushing – this is relaxing, not a race.
* Close your eyes and exhale the darkness of your panic, frustration or unhappiness.
* Continue alternately inhaling with your eyes open and exhaling with your eyes closed until you feel that you are filled with silver light.
* Now gently exhale a little of that light in a single breath, this time with your eyes open, directing it in your vision towards someone you know who is also feeling stressed or anxious.
* Inhale more moonlight and continue to exhale, still with your eyes open, continuing to direct the healing light.
* Let the Moon shine into a silver or crystal bowl of water. Before bedtime, tip the water into your bath so you can absorb the Moon energies through your pores.
Whenever you feel stressed, visualise the Moon, close your eyes and gently inhale; peace will come to you because you gave it out to others

Full Moon Love Spell

Full Moon Love Spell

 

Items needed: One red candle and one white candle, 1 tsp. each of ginseng, jasmine, and lovage, three drops each of rose oil, lavender oil, and violet oil, a small white plate, a piece of parchment paper, and one 9” strip of red ribbon.

 
On the day of the full moon, melt the red candle in a double boiler. When the wax has melted, mix in the herbs and oils. Remove the pan from the stove and stir the wax as it begins to cool. Chant the following over the wax.

 

Mother of the moon, goddess of love,
Descend to me from far above.
Within this wax passion inspire
That I shall have the one I desire.

 

When the wax has cooled, but not solidified, dip the white candle in it so that the herbal wax mixture thoroughly coats the candle. Allow the candle to dry.

 

Then, beneath the full moon, inscribe your name on one side of the candle and the name of the one you desire on the opposite side of the candle. Hold the candle to your heart as you repeat the previous chant. Fill the candle with all your love and desire. When you feel the candle has been thor- oughly charged, light it. Visualize you and the one your desire together. Allow the candle to burn out.

Full Moon Blessing Rite

Full Moon Blessing Rite

 

Items needed:

Clear glass bowl, a one-liter bottle of spring water, silver paint, sprig of jasmine, moon- stone, two white altar candles, gardenia incense and oil, small paint brush, and usual altar tools.

 

Set your altar so the light of the full moon shines directly on it. Fill the bowl with the spring water. Place the bowl and all the other items called for on the altar. Cast your magick circle and then light the altar candles, saying:

 

Lady I now invite thee here
As the mother of sacred Earth,
Whose power is beyond compare
When dreams are given birth.

 

Hold the moonstone and sprig of jasmine in offering as you ask this blessing:

 

Lady of desire, reflection of light
You are my motion, direction, and second sight.
Mother of creation, the original source,
You are potential, power, the ultimate force.
Grandmother of time, wise one from above,
I summon thee here with honor and love.
 

Gently place the moonstone and sprig of jasmine in the water. Pick up the bowl and hold it in offering as you say:

 

I call the brilliant evening star,
The virgin of celestial light.
The gracious goddess from afar,
Great mother of second sight.
Glorious queen of the twilight hour
Wise and vigilant protector,
Thou whose silent power
Is regal and most splendor.
I beckon thee to now descend
Great mystery behind the veil
She who rises time and again
The keeper of the grail.

 

Set the bowl down. Anoint your forehead with a drop of the water. Extinguish the candles, take up the circle, and carefully place the bowl in a window where the moon will continue to shine on it. Just before sunrise, remove the jasmine and stone. Pour the contents of the bowl into a bottle with a lid, and close tightly. Keep the moonstone with your other magickal tools. Take the jasmine to the nearest river or lake, toss it in the water as you make a wish. Use the moon water to bless and consecrate your circle, or in place of oil to anoint candles and other magickal objects.

New Moon Ritual

New Moon Ritual

A beautiful ritual for the new moon

 

Dance around circle, chanting the names of the Goddess.Chant:

Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna

Chant as often as you like. Then kneel before the altar and say:

Dark is the night as we reach this turning point.

Here is a time of death; yet a time of birth.

Endings and beginnings

Ebbing and flowing

A journey done; a journey yet to start.

I honor now the crone-mother darksome and divine.

I give of my strength and in return see rebirth.

Arms raised, say:

BEHOLD, the Lady of Darkness; Mother, Grand mother. Old, yet ever young.

I honor and love you now and always. As the wheel turns we see birth, death and rebirth. I know from this that every ending is a beginning; every stop a fresh starting point.

Maiden, Mother, Crone… you are all of these and more.

Whenever I have need of anything, I can call upon you and your Lord, for you abide within me.

Even at the darkest of times, when there seems no single spark to warm me and the night seems blackest of all, You are here watching over me, in strength and in love.

You are She who is at the beginning and the ending of all time.

Blessed Be

Have cakes and wine and give thanks. Close ritual.

Dark Moon Ritual

The dark moon is a good time to do protective magick and to banish things from your life.

Supplies you will need: two black candles, cauldron, paper and pen.

Place the cauldron in the center of the altar and put the paper and pen beside it. Cast the circle in a counter clockwise way. when it is cast, return to the altar and face the North. Light the black candles. Say:

The moon is dark. She hides her face from humans. Only women can know the true secrets of the Dark Mother. Wise one, let me feel Your presence and power. I need Your wisdom of releasing and removing. If punishment be needed by those who work against me, I leave it within your hands.

Move counterclockwise to the East and say:

Remove all negatives from my thoughts and mind, Dark Mother. Let them bear no fruit within my life.

Go to the North and say:

Remove all negatives from my body, Dark Mother. Let them bear no fruit in my life.

Go to the West and say:

Remove all negatives from my emotions, Dark Mother. Let them bear no fruit in my life.

Go to the South and say:

Remove all negatives from my spiritual life, Dark Mother. Let them bear no fruit in my life.

Return to the altar and stand facing North. Say :

I accept no negative thoughts, words, or deeds from others. They are destroyed by the powers of the Dark Mother. If these negatives come from within myself, turn them into lessons of good. Help me to become balanced, a true Goddess-daughter/son of light and wisdom.

Face the altar now. Write down on the paper negative things you wished removed from your life (negative thoughts about yourself, bad habits, negative influences of people.) Read each one out loud to the Dark Mother to release them to Her. Light the paper from one of the black candles and drop it into the cauldron and watch it burn. Say:

I release these unto Your keeping. Show me how to move beyond these negatives into a position of light and power.

Burn the paper until it is reduced to ashes. Raise your arms in reverence to the Goddess when the paper is finished and say:

Dark Mother, Crone Goddess, Wise and Elder One, teach me Your deep mysteries, the Ancient Goddess magick known to my foremothers and fathers. Guide and protect me, Dark Mother.

Now would be a good time to meditate and see what insight you may receive from the Mother. Or do a spell of some sort. When finished, release the circle as usual. Bury the ashes of the paper somewhere off of your property.

Use the smudging wand to purify the space as you move around the circle.

Invocation to the Goddess

(ring bell with arms in Goddess position, arms in a V above your head)

Meditation

Remember a time in your life when you were miserable, depressed and felt like you couldn’t go on.
Let the painful memories overtake you, feeling yourself weaken and become frightened. Put yourself back in that pain-filled time in your life.
As you meditate on that time, sink down the floor and curl up in an embryonic position.
You are completely obsessed by pain and depression. The shadows around you lengthen and darkness spreads.
Then! Arise!

Light your white candle and hold it high overhead.
Say:

In darkness, there is light!
I feel energy and life returning to me!
I feel my heartbeat strong
I feel the power of the universe and the power of the Goddess and God within me.

Pass the candle over your body, tuning in completely with the light, feeling its power heal and protect you.
Allow its rays to completely penetrate your being, healing and cleansing you.
As you are doing this, chant

Let the light cast out all darkness

Cakes and wine

Thank the God and Goddess for their presence

Close the circle

Solitary Moon Rite

Solitary Moon Rite

This rite may be used for either New or Full Moon. The difference is in your meditation and mental attitude in preparation. Remember that the New Moon is a time of outward work and thought, building to the peak which is the Full Moon. At the Full Moon, you should be preparing to lessen the outward flow of energy, bit by bit, until the period before New Moon, during which you are passive, building a pool of energy within you, in preparation for the New Moon.

The altar should be placed in the center of the ritual area. On it should be placed a rose or stick of incense on the eastern side, a red votive candle to the South; a cup of water on the West, and a bowl of salt or living plant on the North.

Around your ritual area, you should place an unlighted candle at the cardinal point of each direction.

To begin your rite, enter your darkened temple, carrying one burning candle, white or lavender, with you. Place it on the center of your altar, sit, and meditate on the meaning of the rite. When you feel the time is right, stand, and go to the eastern point, carrying with you, the burning taper. Light the votive at the eastern point and go to the southern, picturing, as you do, an arc of pure strong light curving from one candle to the next. Continue to the West, and then to the North, lighting the candles as you go, and then walk to your eastern candle again, having formed a circle of protective light surrounding the area in which you worship.

Return to the center of the circle, replace the candle on the altar, and say:

My Lady of the Moon, who is called Diana, Artemis, Levanah, Isis and by any other names, I come to you to bring you my love and my devotion. May you grant me the joy of your presence.

Mentally divide the room into four quadrants by visualizing a line of silvery moonlight from the southeast to the northwest, and from the northeast to the southwest. Go the East, taking with you the rose or incense. Say:

Sweet Goddess, the gentle breeze is the touch of your loving hand, the wind of storm a reminder of your strength. The sound of the trees in the wind is your voice, and the fragrance of flowers borne on the wind is your gift of beauty.

Place the rose next to the votive candle, then stand there as you picture the quadrant filling with moonlight. See the moonlight streaming quietly and gently into the room, filling the quadrant from center point to the edge of your circle.

When this is complete, take the red candle to the South. Place the gift and see the quadrant fill with moonlight. Say:

Most loved Lady, the light of the candle is a guide along our path leading to you; its warmth the reassurance of your presence and your love. The light of the Sun is the knowledge you impart to us, driving out ignorance and those things which can survive only in darkness.

At the West:

Lovely One, the quiet pool is the serenity of your being. The vast sea where life began on this planet is the vast sea of your being whence all life came; its waves are the ebb and flow of the universe you rule.

At the North:

Goddess of all, the fertility of the earth is a sign of your fertility, whence all life rose. The solidity and permanence are still of it are still less than yours. The Earth’s fertility feeds our bodies, and your fertility feeds our souls.

Go to the center of your temple, which is now filled with moonlight.

Everything in the circle is touched by it, blessed by it, including you. Sit down and feel this moonlight around you. Know that it is the Goddess. Realize that you are in the center of a sphere of light that is half above and half above and half below where you sit. Begin to breathe slowly and evenly, deep breaths that penetrate your whole body. When this rhythmic breathing becomes natural, imagine that the moonlight by which you are surrounded enters you, fills you entirely.

With each exhalation of your breath, some of the essence of yourself leaves your body, and with each inhalation, the light enters you. You are being filled ever so gently with this beautiful light. This light, which is the presence, the being of the Goddess, is within you as well as without. With each breath, you are less yourself and more the Goddess.

When you are filled with light, filled with the Goddess, the shell of your body fades away. You have no body; there is nothing to separate you from the entire being of the Goddess. Nothing exists but the being of which you are apart. You have ceased to be a separate entity. You are nothing and everything. All that was, that is, and all that will be, you are.

Enjoy this feeling as long as you like. When you feel it is time, picture the outer shell of your physical body reforming, becoming solid again. It is being built out of the Universe of which you are a part.

Now, as you continue your slow deep breathing, see the moonlight flowing out of your body, as gently and slowly as it entered. As it flows out, realize there is a difference. Because you have become one with the Goddess, with the Universe, your being has changed. As the moonlight flows out of your body, it takes with it a part of that which was yourself, now part of the Goddess, and leaves behind a part of the Goddess, forever now part of you. You become yourself again, solid as you were, but changed. You are surrounded by the presence of the Goddess, which now contains a part of yourself .

Move again to the East. As you speak, and after, picture the moonlight in that quadrant flowing back to its source, leaving that quadrant as it was.

Do this at each quadrant, until all the moonlight has returned to the Moon.

At the East:

My Lady, guide my thoughts. Let them lead always closer to you.

At the South:

Gracious Goddess, guide my actions. Let them always help and never harm others or myself.

At the West:

Lovely One, guide my emotions: Let them be healing and touched always by you.

At the North:

Sweet Goddess, let my mind always be fertile and strong, that I may grow always toward you.

Return to the East to complete the circle and say:

Queen of Heaven, I thank you for your presence, both now and always. My love and devotion are yours. Blessed be!

All spirits who have joined me tonight may depart, with my love. Return to your proper places.

Walk again around your circle, but this time counterclockwise, extinguishing the quadrant guards as you go, and at the same time, mentally erasing the white line which surrounded your circle. When the candles are out and the circle gone, rap on your altar and say:

The rite is ended.
