Blood Moon Ritual
The Blood Moon is the last of the harvest moons, and the one closest to Samhain, the time when the veil between this world and the Otherworld is the thinnest. Also known as “moon of the changing season” and “failing leaf moon” the Blood Moon represents the death of one cycle and the birth of a new cycle. Blood is the life force that flows through your physical body. The Blood Moon ritual gives you the opportunity to give thanks and celebrate this life force.
For this ritual, you will need a white candle, a red candle, a red apple, a chalice full of cranberry juice, and three daffodil bulbs.
Draw a magick circle and call in the elements. Light the white candle and say:
I light this candle for eternal light.
Light the red candle and say:
I light this candle for eternal life.
Give thanks to the Goddess before eating the apple:
Divine Lady, I thank you for your gift of life.
Place any seeds from the apple on the altar. Take the chalice of juice and go to each of the four directions while calling out:
Oh great and mighty one, ruler of eternal life
Our blood runs together as One on this sacred night.
Thank the Goddess and bid farewell to the elements. Pull up the circle and in the morning, take the three daffodil bulbs and plant them into the ground. They represent the eternal life of the divine Goddess being renewed for the next year. Return the apple seeds to the earth.
