Full Moon Scrying Ritual
The upcoming summer months are the perfect time for Full Moon Scrying and I’d like to pass on an old, time honored scrying ritual originally written by D.J. Conway that I have used many times during the long summer nights:
1 bright, shiny silver coin
1 small, black cauldron or scrying bowl filled with water
Perform this ritual outside where the rays of the Moon can fall directly onto the water in the cauldron. If you cannot go outside, stay in a darkened room near a window that the Moon shines through. Place the coin in the water and take the cauldron in both hands. Gaze up at the Moon and say:
“Lovely Lady of the night,
Mysteries old and futures bright,
Give me a glimpse of that to be
And as I will so mote it be.”
Look down at the coin shimmering in the cauldrons water. With your eyes half closed, adjust your vision as if you were looking into and through the coin. Don’t try to analyze anything you might see or that might come into your mind. Just accept it. Some people, rather than seeing actual pictures within the cauldron, will have mental impressions, feelings or pictures. When you have finished, bow to the Moon and say thank you. Pour the water out on the ground. You’re done!
Releasing Intense Emotions Spell
Perform this easy spell to calm yourself when dealing with intense emotional family or other issues. By ridding yourself of this excess emotional energy, you will allow your mind and body to stay healthy during this stressful season.
a piece of unlined paper
a black candle
a bowl of purified water
Light the candle. On the paper write down any fears, frustrations, or concerns you may be feeling. Let the words come flowing from inside you, do not hold back. If you feel like saying the words aloud as you write them do so. Once you are finished fold the paper up and burn it in the candle flame. After you burn the paper, dip your fingers in the water and sprinkle yourself with it while saying:
“I release these words, I release this tension, I release this negativity from my life”
Ring of Fire Spell
This spell is based on a little-known solar ritual from the Aegean islands. Long ago on the night before the Summer Solstice, hoops were set ablaze, and the villagers woudl guide the Sun’s return by jumping though rings of fire. You can create your own ring of fire with this spell. At dusk, outdoors if possible, light four candles of appropriate color, one for each season, in a circle. In the center place a gold or yellow candle for the Sun. Light the seasonal candles and say:
“Seasons must turn,
Let the Sun return.”
Light the Sun candle and say:
Charge me with passion,
Turn my words into action.
It must be!”
Jump over your lit candles if you dare. Meditate on each Season and Thank the Sun for it’s return as you put out the candles.
Relationship Charm Spell
On the night of a waxing Moon gather a pink candle, two rose petals, lavender oil and a small china plate. Cast a circle and light the candle. Contemplate the flame as a symbol of love’s light. Place the rose petals on the plate and add three drops of oil while saying:
“Love’s truth burns bright,
I welcome my soul mate on this night.”
Tip the candle to drip wax onto the petals, enough to form a coin sized token. Mold the wax and the petals together. Keep this token safe for six Moons then bury it beneath a rose bush.
Egg Spell for Fertility
What You’ll Need:
8 vanilla beans
A place to bury the egg
Using a natural food colouring, draw the letters “RIPE” on your egg. Bury the egg along with the vanilla beans in the yard. If you don’t have access to any place for this, use a large flower pot. Every night, water the ground where you planted the egg, until you are pregnant.
When to do this spell: This spell is best performed during the waxing moon phase (when the moon is getting bigger in the sky), and preferably on a Monday.

Calm Warring Siblings
Had the nine Muses fought the way most sisters do, humanity’s arts would be much the poorer. To help establish sibling harmony among your children, bind objects symbolic of each child with a six-foot-long brown ribbon. As you do so, repeat: “Binah brought you unto me. Mother goddess, hear this plea. Let my children happy be; bound in soulful harmony.” If the Moon is waxing, you should contemplate a growth of love among the siblings; if waning, meditate on diminishing hostility. Pull the ribbon tight, and knot. Every time they fight, think of their goddess-blessed unity. It will not take long for the spell to take practical effect.

Contact and Old Friend Spell
Sandalwood oil and incense
Photograph of person
Glass or cup of water
Cast a circle in your usual manner. Light incense and anoint candle with sandalwood oil. Place the photo of the person you wish to have contact you on your altar. If you have no photo, write their name on a piece of paper. Take a small handful of salt in your right hand, and let it trickle into the cup of water. While the salt falls, repeat the words “Contact me”, and concentrate on your friend getting in touch with you. Place the salt water on your altar and leave the candle to burn out. Your friend should make contact with you before the water evaporates from the cup.
