This spell work with the runes as one of its props. If you have a set of runes, this is definitely the time to break them out. If not, no worries. The runes are a nice link back to the god Odin, but in a pinch you could also draw a few rune sigils on a piece of paper and set that on your work area. Improvise and be creative. What do you think you could also add to this full moon spell?
• 1 purple candle (purple for spirituality and to align with the energies of Mercury)
• A coordinating candle holder
• A nail or pin to engrave the candle with Wednesday’s planetary symbol of Mercury
• A black feather or a picture of a raven (this bird was sacred to Odin, and the raven represents mystery and magick)
• The Hanged Man tarot card
• Your tarot deck, set off to the side
• Runes scattered across the work surface or a drawing of a few runes
• A lighter or matches
• A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell
Carefully engrave the Mercury symbol on the candle. Place the candle in its holder and then arrange the rest of the spell components to your liking. You may certainly embellish this spell by adding a statue or image of Odin, if you choose. This full moon spell is designed to help you look at things from a new perspective and to receive some inspiration, so put on your thinking cap and be imaginative. Take a few moments to ground and center yourself. Then light the purple candle and speak the following verse:
Odin, hear my call on this full moon night
Grant me wisdom and improve my insight
May I gain a new perspective at this time
Bless me with peace and inspiration divine
I now release that which no longer serves
This change begins with the sounds of my words.
If you choose, this would be an excellent time to meditate and see what Odin has to tell you. Lay your hands on the card, feather, and runes. Take a deep breath and relax. Now let your mind open and see what you learn
When you are finished, close the spell with these words:
By the power of Wednesday’s witchery
This spell is sealed;
I set the magick free!
Allow the candle to burn out in a safe place. Clean up your other spell supplies. Save the feather or raven picture for future magick. Return the card to the tarot deck, and gather up all your runes. If you like, now is the perfect time to do a simple reading with your runes or your tarot cards. Ask for clarity and for insight, then draw three cards or stones and see what Odin has to say.
