What You’ll Need:
-A jar or bowl, preferably clear
-4-6 small rocks or pebbles
-A permanent marker (Sharpie works best)
How to Conjure:
★Using the marker, write an aspiration on each rock, preferably one or two words each. For example: Abundance, happiness, health, new job, healthy relationship, new home, etc.
★Fill the jar or bowl with water. Take the jar and your wishing stones outside or by a moonlit window.
★Sit quietly for a moment (preferably in the grass or soil) and center yourself.
★One by one, carefully drop each wishing stone into the jar as you envision the assigned word coming to fruition. For example, if you’re casting for happiness, picture all the simple pleasures that make you happy as you release the stone into the water. If you’re casting for health, imagine yourself in tip-top shape, stretching and moving without any pain or illness.
★Once each wishing stone has been released into the water, hold the jar or bowl in your hands and say:
★Leave the jar outside overnight or on a moonlit windowsill. In the morning, pull the stones from the water and allow to dry. Return the water to the earth. If desired, you may keep your wishing stones with you until your spell manifests. Otherwise, place them in a safe place and know the Goddess has heard your moon wishes!

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 analuze anything you might see or that might come into your mind. Just accept it. Some people, rathar 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!
Items You Will Need:
Black thread or Ribbon
Rock, Cork, or wax doll
During a waning moon pick up the item you selected (Rock, Cork, Doll) and focus on all of the things the person you are binding has said or done, focus on the feelings and resulting turmoil, gather it to you then transfer all of that negativity into the object. When you’re sure you’ve gotten it all in begin winding your thread or ribbon tightly around the object. As you wind chant:
As I wind I forever bind,
No more will I feel nor see,
These things which harmed me.
When the object is completely obscured with the thread or ribbon, and you’ve pushed all of the negativity into the object, then chant:
Never more to feel
Never more to harm
Then throw this item into a body of moving water, or bury it.

Ritual To Receive The Protection Of The Moon
Place a jewel, that you regularly carry on you, in a cup of spring water a day before the full moon. The following day, on the evening of full moon, stir the water three times with your finger in a clockwise motion. Take the cup in your hands and in a clockwise, stirring motion, move the cup in a clockwise, circular, stirring motion three times.
Then, repeat these words aloud:
O LIGHT OF THE MOON,
KEEP ME FROM HARM.
Raise the cup towards the sky and drink the water. Remove the jewel from the cup. You must carry it on your person to the next full moon in order to ensure your protection.
Repeat this ritual every month to benefit from its influence.
To Obtain Money…
Done During the Full Moon…
Fill your cauldron half full of water and drop a silver coin into it. Position the cauldron so that the light from the moon shines into the water. Gently sweep your hands just above the surface, symbolically gathering the Moon’s silver.
While doing this say…
“Lovely Lady of the Moon, bring to me your
wealth right soon. Fill my hands with silver
and gold. All you give, my purse can hold.”
Repeat this three times. When finished, pour the water upon the earth.

Position and build the Altar
Include small slips of paper, a cauldron for burning, a quill pen and dragon’s blood ink
Light the Goddess Candle
Call to Circle
Call the Quarters and cast the Circle.
At completion, HPS moves to altar and says:
The circle is cast. Feel how the energies have changed. We are between the worlds, now. This is a time that is no time; a place that is no place. Blessed be.
HPS gives the Goddess Invocation
HP gives God Invocation
The Charge of the Goddess says, Whenever you have need of anything, once in the month, and better it be when the moon is full, then ye shall assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of me, who am Queen of all Witcheries.
The Moon is full, and we are assembled here to ____________ (state in detail a need of a group member, absent or present, and why magickal intervention is needed and appropriate).
Each of us will write a wish as we would have it done for ____________ (name of person). Always remember the Rede and the Law of Three.
After all have written, we will release the wishes into the universe by burning them.
Keep silence now and enter into a time of meditation and consider your wish for __________ (name of person).
When all have finished meditating and writing, each person should offer the wish to each quarter (with appropriate wording of her/his choice), starting with East and moving deosil. Then move to the altar and light the paper from the Goddess Candle and drop it in the cauldron saying:
With this flame and smoke I release this wish to the winds of time, that my request be fulfilled.
So Mote it Be.
Chant should continue until last person burns her/his wish. The chant should be about strengthening each person’s wish.
Pause of silence

The cakes and the ale are outward symbols, sacraments, of our inward relationship with the Goddess and the God. With these small offerings, we honor both Goddess and God.
We of the Craft believe that our words and our actions shape reality. Tonight, we have called upon the power of Goddess and God to _____________ (re-state what and why we just did).
As we have willed it, so mote it be. Let us honor the gods and remember our tie to them.
