Full Moon Scrying Ritual

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:
Items Needed:
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!

SOLITARY MOON RITE

SOLITARY MOON RITE

 

This rite may be used for either New or Full Moon. The difference is in your meditation and mental attitude in preparation. Remember that the New Moon is a time of outward work and thought, building to the peak which is the Full Moon. At the Full Moon, you should be preparing to lessen the outward flow of energy, bit by bit, until the period before New Moon, during which you are passive, building a pool of energy within you, in preparation for the New Moon.

The altar should be placed in the center of the ritual area. On it should be placed a rose or stick of incense on the eastern side, a red votive candle to the South; a cup of water on the West, and a bowl of salt or living plant on the North.

Around your ritual area, you should place an unlighted candle at the cardinal point of each direction.

To begin your rite, enter your darkened temple, carrying one burning candle, white or lavender, with you. Place it on the center of your altar, sit, and meditate on the meaning of the rite. When you feel the time is right, stand, and go to the eastern point, carrying with you, the burning taper. Light the votive at the eastern point and go to the southern, picturing, as you do, an arc of pure strong light curving from one candle to the next. Continue to the West, and then to the North, lighting the candles as you go, and then walk to your eastern candle again, having formed a circle of protective light surrounding the area in which you worship.

Return to the center of the circle, replace the candle on the altar, and say:

My Lady of the Moon, who is called Diana, Artemis, Levanah, Isis and
by any other names, I come to you to bring you my love and my devo-
tion. May you grant me the joy of your presence.

Mentally divide the room into four quadrants by visualizing a line of silvery moonlight from the southeast to the northwest, and from the northeast to the southwest. Go the East, taking with you the rose or incense. Say:

Sweet Goddess, the gentle breeze is the touch of your loving hand, the
wind of storm a reminder of your strength. The sound of the trees in
the wind is your voice, and the fragrance of flowers borne on the wind
is your gift of beauty.

Place the rose next to the votive candle, then stand there as you picture the quadrant filling with moonlight. See the moonlight streaming quietly and gently into the room, filling the quadrant from center point to the edge of your circle.
When this is complete, take the red candle to the South. Place the gift and see the quadrant fill with moonlight. Say:
Most loved Lady, the light of the candle is a guide along our path leading to you;its warmth the reassurance of your presence and your love. The light of the Sun is the knowledge you impart to us, driving out ignorance and those things which can survive only in darkness.

At the West:

Lovely One, the quiet pool is the serenity of your being. The vast sea where life began on this planet is the vast sea of your being whence all life came; its waves are the ebb and flow of the universe you rule.

At the North:

Goddess of all, the fertility of the earth is a sign of your fertility, whence all life rose. The solidity and permanence are still of it are still less than yours. The Earth’s fertility feeds our bodies, and your fertility feeds our souls.

Go to the center of your temple, which is now filled with moonlight. Everything in the circle is touched by it, blessed by it, including you. Sit down and feel this moonlight around you. Know that it is the Goddess. Realize that you are in the center of a sphere of light that is half above and half above and half below where you sit. Begin to breathe slowly and evenly, deep breaths that penetrate your whole body. When this rhythmic breathing becomes natural, imagine that the moonlight by which you are surrounded enters you, fills you entirely. With each exhalation of your breath, some of the essence of yourself leaves your body, and with each inhalation, the light enters you. You are being filled ever so gently with this beautiful light. This light, which is the presence, the being of the Goddess, is within you as well as without. With each breath, you are less yourself and more the Goddess.

When you are filled with light, filled with the Goddess, the shell of your body fades away. You have no body; there is nothing to separate you from the entire being of the Goddess. Nothing exists but the being of which you are apart. You have ceased to be a separate entity. You are nothing and everything. All that was, that is, and all that will be, you are.

Enjoy this feeling as long as you like. When you feel it is time, picture the outer shell of your physical body reforming, becoming solid again. It is being built out of the Universe of which you are a part.

Now, as you continue your slow deep breathing, see the moonlight flowing out of your body, as gently and slowly as it entered. As it flows out, realize there is a difference. Because you have become one with the Goddess, with the Universe, your being has changed. As the moonlight flows out of your body, it takes with it a part of that which was yourself, now part of the Goddess, and leaves behind a part of the Goddess, forever now part of you. You become yourself again, solid as you were, but changed. You are surrounded by the presence of
the Goddess, which now contains a part of yourself .

Move again to the East. As you speak, and after, picture the moonlight in that quadrant flowing back to its source, leaving that quadrant as it was. Do this at each quadrant, until all the moonlight has returned to the
Moon.

At the East:

My Lady, guide my thoughts. Let them lead always closer to you.

At the South:

Gracious Goddess, guide my actions. Let them always help and never
harm others or myself.

At the West:

Lovely One, guide my emotions: Let them be healing and touched
always by you.

At the North:

Sweet Goddess, let my mind always be fertile and storng, that I may
grow always toward you.

Return to the East to complete the circle and say:

Queen of Heaven, I thank you for your presence, both now and always.
My love and devotion are yours. Blessed be!

All spirits who have joined me tonight may depart, with my love.
Return to your proper places.

Walk again around your circle, but this time counterclockwise, extinguishing the quadrant guards as you go, and at the same time, mentally erasing the white line which surrounded your circle. When the candles are out and the circle gone, rap on your altar and say:

The rite is ended.

A Lover’s Blessing

Moon phase:  New moon

Materials:

  • altar candles (gold and silver for deities)
  • quarter candles and sigils
  • statues representing the three phases of the Triple Goddess
  • statue representing the Horned Consort (Pan)
  • bell
  • incense of musk
  • a vial of Sandalwood oil (to be charged in ritual)

STATEMENT OF INTENT

On this night I will be offering several gifts to my lover – as a sign of my love.  May the Lord and Lady guide my secret works this evening.

…My first gift to you is to have you seen as I see you.

A REFLECTION OF YOU

As one of the gifts that I offer to you – I would like you to look into this mirror, and tell me what you see, then tell me what you think I see in you.  This is a gift I offer, for I think each of us has a harsh image of themselves.  When I say “You are beautiful”, I want you to know what that means, and why I say it.  I don’t want the words to make you frown in disagreement over the complexes you may have of yourself and for myself as well.

When I hold up the mirror to you, I want you to tell me what you see and how you see yourself in your own eyes – and then from my eyes.

When done – I will do the same.

    Each person will then say what they see, good or bad without feeling like what they say is wrong or untrue.  Let them say exactly what they feel.
 

…My second gift is my blessing of you in the form of anointing you with oil.

CHARGING OF THE OIL.

On the altar, I have a vial of Sandalwood oil that I will charge.  This will be done with “Om-ing” and a release of the energy into the vial.

ANOINTING OF YOUR LOVER

Have your lover stand before you
(skyclad is preferred since it is the body and soul that you are anointing with oil as a sign of your love.)

As you say each line – anoint the area with oil from your fingertips.
 

  I bless your mind, for your thoughts of love
    I bless your eyes for seeing me as I am
    I bless your lips for your words of love and the softness of your kiss
    I bless your shoulders for bearing the weight of love
    I bless your heart for feeling love for me
    I bless your breasts for the comfort they offer to me
    I bless your arms for holding me in love
    I bless your hands for the pleasure and comfort they give to me
    I bless your womb and yoni (penis for male) for the secrets of pleasure
    & wonder they contain
    I bless your legs for the weight and responsibilities of love
    I bless your feet for bringing you on the path to me.

…My third gift to my lover, a single flame to signify our union in love.

LIGHTING OF OUR UNION

From the flames of the altar candles, signifying the Lord and Lady – we each light a single white candle of our own and from our two flames we lit a single pink candle together as a sign of our young love – newly begun.
 

A TOAST TO OUR UNION

We then drank from the chalice of wine each holding the chalice together and drinking  from the same spot on the chalice.  So our lips drank as one.  We drank to new beginnings.

THANKS AND FAREWELL TO THE LADY

Bridget, Aradia, Hecate – Goddess in her triple form – each their own and each one, We thank you for your presence, guidance and blessing on our promise made here this evening.  Go if you must …stay if you will, we bid you Hail and Farewell!

THANKS AND FAREWELL TO THE LORD

Pan, Lord of the Forest, lover to the Goddess,  We thank you for your presence, guidance and blessing on our promise made here this evening.  Go if you must…stay if you will, we bid you Hail and Farewell!

CLOSING OF THE QUARTERS

O mighty Sylves, Guardians of the East and powers of Air.
I thank you for your presence and magic this evening,
Go if you must … stay if you will,
The gate of the East is closed…I bid you Hail and Farewell

O mighty Salamanders, Guardians of the South and powers of Fire
I thank you for your presence and magic this evening,
Go if you must…stay if you will,
The gate of the South is closed…I bid you Hail and Farewell

O mighty Undines, Guardians of the West and powers of Water
I thank you for your presence and magic this evening,
Go if you must…stay if you will,
The gate of the West is closed…I bid you Hail and Farewell

O mighty Gnomes, Guardians of the North and powers of Earth
I thank you for your presence and magic this evening,
Go if you must…stay if you will,

THE CIRCLE IS OPEN BUT UNBROKEN
MERRY MEET, MERRY PART, AND MERRY MEET AGAIN.

New Moon Job Spell

06717896dc1a6e04ddab0c5131dee095

New Moon Job Spell

Another good spell purpose for the new moon is getting a new job. If you’re seeking new employment, try this ritual out. Get your supplies out:

  • 2 white candles
  • 2 green candles
  • 2 gold candles
  • 2 pieces of malachite and tiger eye
  • Cinnamon oil

Line up the candles, alternating the colors. Anoint each one with cinnamon oil, and rub a little oil on the stones too. Start at one end and light each candle. With each one, repeat these words:

A new career is what I desire,
I cast this spell to get a hire.
By the light of this new moon,
I need a new job soon.

After all the candles are lit, take each stone and gently pass it through the flames (careful of your fingers). Then hold the stones in your hands and visualize the type of job you want to get. After the spell, pocket the stones and carry them with you. You should have a new job by the next new moon.

New Moon Spell – Sprout a Spell

06717896dc1a6e04ddab0c5131dee095

Sprout a Spell

Nothing says “new beginnings” like planting a seed, so use the power of a growing plant to bring success to your own new moon projects. You need:

  • A small flower pot
  • Soil
  • Seeds (anything will do)
  • Egg shells
  • A small piece of paper

Get everything together and write your intentions on the paper. Keep it to a word or two, but enough to represent what you want to accomplish during this new moon. Put a little soil in the flower pot, then place in the bit of paper (fold it up), and then crush some egg shells on top of that. Fill up the rest of the pot with soil.

Repeat the following:

I plant this seed when the moon is new,
Bring me success, I ask it true.

Keep repeating this as you plant your seeds, and give them a little water. After the ritual, keep the pot somewhere sunny and you should start seeing some success in your plans when the plant begins to sprout. Keep it healthy and thriving to keep the magick going.
