Monday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell Selene’s Ritual
Try working this spell on a Monday while both the moon and the sun are in the sky at the same time. During certain phases of the waning moon, the moon can be seen in the morning sky (or in the new to waxing moon phase, in the evening sky just before the sun sets). This time-when both the sun and the moon are visible in the sky-is believed to be a time of incredible magickal power. Should also mention this is a great spell to work on a Full Moon night, just adjust the opening line.
• 1 white taper candle
• 1 silver taper candle
• 2 candle holders
• A white rose in a vase
• Matches or a lighter
• Sandalwood incense and an incense holder
Set up this ritual on a safe, flat surface. Arrange your work area so that you can see the moon, no matter what phase she is in. When you are ready to begin, light the candles and the incense. Center yourself, and repeat the spell below three times:
Monday is the magickal day of the Moon
In this enchanted time, hear this Witch’s tune
See the white and silver candles burning so bright
I call the Goddess Selene for her help this night
Practical solutions are her shining gifts, you see
Lady, show me the way; as I will, so mote it be.
Lift up your face to the moon and take nice deep, even breaths. Concentrate on the moon, and let your mind drift. Allow your eyes to blink naturally as you meditate on Selene, Lady of the Moon, and what messages she may have for you. If it helps, close your eyes; just keep your face tipped so the light of the moon shines down on you.
Close by saying:
Selene, I thank you for your time and care
I close this spell now by the powers of earth, water, fire and air.
Snuff out your illuminator candles. You may save these candles to use on the full moon or anytime you call on Selene. Enjoy the rose until it starts to fade, then carefully fully gather the petals and spread them out to dry in a single layer. After they have dried, store them in an airtight, nonporous container (old glass canning jars are ideal for this purpose). Then use those enchanted petals in lunar philter and potion recipes or in any spell where you need to speed things up. Keep your eyes open, and see how Selene’s power and your moon magick go to work in your life.
