Third Quarter Moon Spell

Third Quarter Moon Spell

The following lunar spell works in harmony with the waning moon. This is the point in time where you work magick to remove obstacles and problems. This is the time of the clairaudient’s greatest powers, so focus those psychic abilities internally and listen carefully for messages and wisdom. The magick is inside you. Be still, and let it unfold.

As the moon starts to wane, the
third lunar cycle begins,
So look quietly within, reflect,
and soul-search again.
Work to remove problems
now, spells I’ll carefully
As the Moon grows smaller, so
too will my troubles leave.

Lady A’s Spell of the Day for Nov. 30th – Energy Binding

Energy Binding


This spell is meant to bind the energies around a person to stop them from effectively using magic.

You will need:

Full/New Moon/Sunlight
An energy source or an object of which energy can be drawn
Bowl of water – optional

First, take out a glass bowl, and fill it with water. This is used to gather energy for the spell, but if you don’t want to use the water, choose another energy source. Then, have the water reflect the sun or moon, and say:

Solar flare, Lunar mist
I call on thee this day
Bring forth your light,
strength and power,
so cast this spell I may.

(Imagine the sun/moon energy flowing into the water)

Like I stated above, this is completely optional. Now, to form the barrier. Draw upon your energy source, and send it towards your target. Once you have reached them, attempt to have your energy surround them in a bubble. Then, say:

Light, Earth, Spirits strong
Leave ‘s presence forever long
Let their powers cripple, and fail with dismay
I hereby banish your magic on this very day!
So mote/might/may it be.

Imagine the bubble drawing the energy from your target and all around him, draining him of magical resources. Continue feeding the bubble/shield/wall with energy until you feel you can release them.

WARNING: Use this with caution, there are currently no counter-spells to stop this. Secondly, there is a possibility your target can breach the barrier if she/he is physically touching a powerful energy source which has greater energy than the barrier itself.




Materials: A bright red or orange candle, a spicy incense, a glass of clear pure cold water, and a bowl of sea salt. If is sunny out you may want to start the spell by going outside for a few minutes and breathing in some fresh air. Sit in front of the candle and say:

“Give me energy to happily complete the task I have been given to do.
I will feel better for having done it. The completion of the task will be my reward.”

Sprinkle the sea salt around the candle and say,

“Give me strength, O sacred Earth.”

Pass your hand near the candle and say

“Give me strength O sacred Fire.”

Pass your hand through the smoke of the incense and say,

“Give me strength, O sacred Air.”

Drink the water down and say

“Give me strength O sacred water.”

Now immediately get up and go do your task.



This is best used at the end of a spoken or written spell.

This adds a certain boost to the releasing of energy.  It also works best if you are wearing a Pentagram you have attuned to yourself.

Speak these word with all the fibers of your body while releasing the spell’s energy:

By the Pentagram I wear,
Water, Fire, Earth, and Air,
Ruled by Spirit as All should be
As I speak So Mote It Be!

Book & Candle Comments


The following chant is a good all purpose chant that can be used for just about any spell:

Witches power burning bright, tarot, rune and blade,
Charge the spell, enfilled with might, here and now the magic’s made.
Wave and tree, hedge and flame, strength of the elements gather here,
Mystic Moon and Brilliant Sun, send your power here this way,
Gracious Lady, Mighty Lord, bless this charge that I lay.
Powers that are, powers that be, gather round this spell I cast,
empower my working three times three, send it forth to see it last!

So Shall it Be!

Tuesday and the Perfect Ritual – Mars’ Energy Ritual

Tuesday and the Perfect Ritual – Mars’ Energy Ritual


Mars’ Energy Ritual

Try your hand at this fiery ritual for courage, passion, and winning battles. This ritual will take several days to complete, until the pillar candle burns all the way down. Also, personalize this spellwork by incorporating into it as many warm Marslike colors and other coordinating magickal correspondences as you can come up with. You just read an entire chapter devoted to Tuesday and Mars associations; here is your chance to flex your witchy muscles a bit and to show yourself what you have learned.

• 1 red pillar candle
• Coordinating-style candle holder (black wrought iron would be perfect)
• A nail or large pin to engrave the candle
• Any Mars-associated stones: red jasper, ruby, garnet, bloodstone
• A pinch of powdered garlic
• A pinch of allspice
• Your philter for courage and protection
• A lighter or matches
• A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell

Take the nail and engrave the symbol for the planet Mars into the side of the candle. Take your time and make it look as nice as you can. Also, consider adding a bit of spice to this Tuesday ritual. Toss a pinch of powdered garlic in the candle holder to promote protection. Try adding a pinch of allspice to bring good fortune and success. You could also dig out a small hole in the top of the pillar candle and sprinkle the spices inside of it. Then, as the candle starts to burn, the hole will seal up with melting wax and eventually tually incorporate the herbs into the body of the candle. Or just place the candle on top of these powdered spices inside the candle holder, and you’re all set.

In addition, think about using the philter recipe from this chapter, and dress the pillar lar candle with it for some increased power. Set a few Mars-associated tumbled stones next to a candle holder containing the pillar candle-try a ruby for power and a red jasper to encourage protection and defending yourself.
Another suggestion would be to work with those pretty red glass marbles again, and arrange them on your work surface to set an enchanting mood. Take the time to make the spell candle setup unique and attractive. Put some effort into it if you want good, strong results. Light the pillar candle, and then repeat the following spell verse three times:

Tuesday is the day for fiery, aggressive Mars
Live with courage and passion, and you will go far
Candle colors for today are midnight black and red
These will draw success and deflect all harm and dread

Help me to win my battles fairly, both great and small
While I show kindness and compassion to one and all
Candle burn and magick spin
Let my ritual now begin.

Close the spell verse by saying:

By all the power of three times three
As I will it, then so shall it be.

Let the candle burn until it is consumed; figure three to five days, depending on the width of the pillar. Make sure you have it in a safe place to finish burning, such as inside of an old metal cauldron or tucked into an unlit fireplace.

Please note: If you cannot leave the ritual candle safely burning, then snuff it out when you leave and relight it as soon as you are home. It may take a few days longer, but the magick will still turn out, especially since you are taking the time and energy to tend the ritual candle so carefully. As you relight the candle, say: As this ritual candle relights, so does my magick once more ignite.

Happy casting!
