The Witches Magick for the First Day of the Hare Moon – Hare Moon Ritual

Beltane Comments & Graphics

 Hare Moon Ritual

 

The Hare Moon is when the Goddess grants the earth unlimited fertility. It is a time of great productivity when you weed out the parasites in your life. In modern mythology, the hare has shape shifted into the Easter bunny, which brings eggs to children. Like the rabbit, the egg is a traditional symbol of fertility. Use this ritual to manifest five personal dreams.

For this ritual, you will need five green candles, five yellow flowers, and five dreams that you would like to come true. Write the dreams down in your journal.

At 5:55 p.m., draw a magick circle, call in the elements and light the green candles, dedicating them to the three faces of the Goddess:

Child, Mother, Grandmother,

Each a fertile part of life,

To the Goddesses of eternal creation,

I give to you this light.

Place the five yellow flowers on your altar, and in a loud voice declare:

Oh great and mighty one,

Let me flower with your fluorescence

Let me glow with your divine light

Like a bright star in the night.

Call out the name of your favorite goddess five times, one for each of your dreams. Finish by shouting:

Ayea! Ayea! Ayea! Ayea! Ayea!

Thank the Goddess, bid farewell to the elements, and close the circle. Allow the candles to burn down safely.

April 24 – Daily Feast

April 24 – Daily Feast

The wild pink verbena that grew so profusely along the slopes have moved to another area. In their place are yellow flowers, unfamiliar but like sunshine after a shower. A familiar saying is that the more something changes the more it stays the same. Flowers, like people and circumstances, change so swiftly and unexpectedly that it seems like the very foundation of the familiar is moving and changing before us. The Cherokees call this, a ma yi, creek water. It is always moving and changing before our eyes. Nature reminds us to renew our minds – to update and enlarge our vision instead of accepting the daily changes of the world that come to nothing. No one has ever been so perfect that he cannot surpass himself and bloom more brilliantly in another area.

~ When we lift our hands we signify our dependence on the Great Spirit. ~
