Wicca Spells & Rituals for Lammas August 1, 2014

Lammas is the Wiccan festival of appreciation for prosperity and also a time for spells and rituals to generate more good fortune in our lives. To me, this is one of the less well-known festivals on the Wheel of the Year, yet its theme is so important. In order to receive more of anything in our lives, we must first give thanks for what we already have. Lammas gives us the opportunity to review any unfinished business and to make plans for completion before the Autumn Equinox.

COLOURS: gold, yellow

OIL: heliotrope, frankincense

PHILTRE: sunflower, chamomile, lavender, juniper, hyssop, vervain, nasturtium, ivy

June Full Moon Pendulum Spell for New Beginnings

Are you unsure about starting a project, or which new idea will be the most productive? You might want to use a pendulum, like a small weight on the end of a chain or string, to tease out the answers from your unconscious mind.

My Full Moon Spells and Rituals eBook has a simple spell using a pendulum, or you can follow your own ritual to ask the same question. You should use a purple candle and frankincense oil and incense. Tapping into your subconscious and thus, the power of the universe, will help set your course with confidence. And don’t worry about this full moon falling on Friday 13. Wiccans hold no superstitions about the number 13, so the full moon will still possess all of its magick and power.
