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!
The Perfect Spell for the New Moon
Ringing in the Muses Spell
5 small bells
1 yard each yellow, red, blue, green, and purple ribbon
Thread a bell on each length of ribbon, then tie the first four ribbons to tree branches in the order listed above, saying with each:
To ring these bells, all breezes blow
Carry their sounds both high and low
To wake the Muses from Their rest
Heed ye now this firm request
Then tie the purple ribbon to a branch, saying something like:
From East and South and West and North
Muses hear me: now come forth
From South and West and North and East
Inspiration now release
From West and North and East and South
Creative powers bud and sprout From North and East and
South and West Heed my call and this request
As these bells ring in the breeze
Let ideas flow forth with ease
Bring inspiration with the wind—
In constant stream without an end—
Unleash Your creativity Muses, bring it now to me
Creative blocks will begin to dissipate within twenty-four hours.
Everyday Moon Magic: Spells & Rituals for Abundant Living (Everyday Series)
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!
