Magickal Activity for the 24th day of August – Festival of Luna

Full-Moon Blessing Rite

Items Needed:

A clear glass bowl

One bottle of Spring water

Silver paint

One sprig of jasmine

One moonstone

One white pillar candle

Gardenia incense and oil

 

Inscribe the symbol(moon symbol with crossed spears on it) on the outside side bottom of the bowl with the silver paint.

Set your altar or small table so the light of the full moon will shine directly on it. Fill the bowl with the spring water. Place the bowl and all the other items called for on the altar. Light the white pillar candle and say:

Lady I now invite thee here,

As the Mother of sacred Earth.

Whose power is beyond compare,

When dreams are given birth.

Hold the moonstone and sprig of Jasmine in offering as you ask this blessing:

Lady of desire, reflection of light,

You are my motion, direction, and second sight.

Mother of creation the original source,

You are potential, power, the ultimate force.

Grandmother of time, wise one from above,

I summon thee here with honor and love.

Gently place the moonstone and sprig of jasmine in the water. Pick up the bowl and hold it in offering to the moon as you say:

I call the brilliant evening star,

The Virgin of celestial light.

The Gracious Goddess from afar,

Great Mother of second sight.
Glorious Queen of the twilight hour,

Wise and vigilant protector.

Thou whose silent power,

Is regal and most splendor.

I beckon thee to now descend,

Great Mystery behind the veil.

She who rises time and again,

The keeper of the Grail.

Set the bowl down. Anoint your forehead with a drop of water. Allow the candle to burn for one hour and then extinguish it. Carefully place the bowl in a window where the light of the moon will continue to shine on it. Just before sunrise, remove the jasmine and stone. Pour the contents of the bowl into a bottle with a lid, and close tightly. Keep the moonstone with your other magickal tools. Take the jasmine to the nearest river or lake and toss it in the water as you make a wish. Use the moon water to anoint candles and other magickal objects.

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!

The Witches Magick for the 15th Day of the Dyad Moon – Lucid Dreaming Spell


Celtic Comments & Graphics
Lucid Dreaming Spell

Cast this spell just before you go to sleep to encourage lucid dreaming.

You will need a white pillar candle, a ballpoint pen, and lavender-scented oil.

Draw seven equal concentric circles around the pillar candle with the ballpoint pen. These circles represent the next seven nights, including tonight. Write these words in large letters around the candle body:

 

Next time I am dreaming, I will know
I am dreaming.

 

Dress the candle body with a thin film of lavender oil. Next, anoint yourself with the oil. Wipe any remaining oil from your hands, and light the candle. Repeat nine times:

 

Next time I am dreaming, I will know
I am dreaming.

 

Think about a dream you recently had. For a couple of minutes imagine you are back in your dream, but this time you know you are dreaming. For example, you notice the floor is melting, or you can fly, the cat speaks seven languages, or the dog is purple— something unusual always will indicate you are dreaming. Say to yourself:

 

I know I am dreaming!

Snuff out the candle. Now as you drift to sleep, repeat to yourself:

Next time I am dreaming, I will know
I am dreaming.

 

Focus all your attention on this idea. If your mind drifts to another thought, just let it go and return to the suggestion:

 

Next time I am dreaming, I will know
I am dreaming.

 

Relight the candle each of the next six nights, repeating the spell each night.

Happy Halloween!!

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Beltane May Pole Candles

You will need:
Lots of pretty ribbons
Tall white or green pillar candle
Gold or brass “Craft Bells”
Candle holder (stand)

Cut lengths of ribbon around 18 inches each, in pretty Springtime colors.(pastels)
Tie a craft bell to each end of ribbon (a tooth pick helps this process) Tie ribbons starting
at ¾ way down the pillar candle, knot three times, don’t tie bows, you need lots of length
on the ribbons. Tie as many as you like snaking your way up the candle, but leave at least
¼ candle bare. Place in a candle stand that will raise the candle about 6
8 inches, so the
ribbons can “drape” Swirl the bundle of ribbons so they face East, ready to greet the dawn on
Beltane morn. Light candle and cheer the Spring time blessings to come. Keep a “safe” eye on
candle & ribbons.

This is a time when our lives can renew themselves. Spring energy can attract new openings, whether in love or in work or in simple pleasure. Open yourself to the energies around you. Honor the journey toward the future upon which we embark every day. The Goddess is within you as well as all around you. She is your witness as you move toward your destiny.
