April 7 2016 Dark Moon Super Moon Spell to Release Sorrow

Dark Moon Spells RitualsModern Wiccans and ancient pagans have used the different phases of the moon to create magick.  The dark moon, which is the period after the waning moon and before the first crescent of light appears from the new moon, is the perfect time to initiate change and renewal.

In April 2016, the dark moon phase is around April 7, depending on your location. It’s also a supermoon, which means that it’s closer than usual to the earth. Because of it’s position, it counts as a supermoon and even though you won’t see it, it’s energy will be felt. Check a reliable almanac for the exact time to perform your ceremony

April Dark Moon Spell to Release Sorrow

My eBook Dark Moon Spells and Rituals contains 15 simple Wiccan rituals to help you eliminate negative energy in your life. Full moon spells are more powerful when done during the full moon, but dark moon rituals can be performed as you need them.

This month, I’ve chosen to focus on a Dark Moon Spell to Release Sorrow.  Sadness can easily overwhelm us and if we hold unhappy memories for a lengthy period, they can become a habitual way of thinking. Such feelings can lead to depression and isolation. Joy is our birthright, so be confident you will receive what you ask for.

My Simple Wiccan Magick  Dark Moon Spells eBook has a ritual to release sorrow. It requires Borage, Coriander and Myrrh.  Your touch stone, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, is Lavender Jade. These correspondences, plus a simple affirmation, may help to release any sorrow and negative energy which is holding you back from true happiness.

Blessed be!

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse March 23, 2016 Spells & Rituals

Wicca March Full MoonThe March 23, 2016 full moon is called Worm Moon, Storm Moon or Crow Moon. The ruling sun sign is Aries, which gives us a full Air moon in Libra. A lunar eclipse also occurs on March 23, so even though there are no specific Wiccan rituals for such events, there will be lots of extra energy.

As this full moon will occur in the morning of March 23rd for North & South America and most of Europe, you should perform your ceremony on the evening of March 22nd. At points further east and in Australia, the full moon will occur late in the evening, so you may charge your tools and perform your rituals on March 23rd.

The full moon in Libra is an ideal time for spells to promote friendship and working with others.  You can use healing rituals if you have had problems with family and friends. As Libra is represented by a set of scales, spells for balance in your relationships are also appropriate.  If you’ve been following my Wheel of the Year guide,  you recently completed a meditation for balance at the Spring Equinox, so the following may be more suitable.

March Correspondences:

Flowers: daffodils and jonquils

Stones: aquamarine and bloodstone

Menu

White Bean & Rosemary Dip

Potato Frittata

Rhubarb Crisp

Libra Full Moon Spell for Partnership and Friendship

This simple spell uses lavender oil and incense. You will also need your cleansed and charged tools plus paper, a blue pen and one blue candle. If you need recipes for this March full moon, or a spell for partnership, you will find both in my Full Moon Spells & Rituals eBook.

Blessed be!

March 9, 2016 Dark Moon Spell for Better Health

Dark Moon Spells RitualsThe March 2016 Dark Moon will occur on the 9th. The dark moon is the period after the waning moon and before the first crescent of light appears from the new moon. Ancient pagans and modern Wiccans know that different phases of the moon have magickal properties, and a Dark Moon is the ideal time for spells and rituals to initiate change and renewal.

Dark Moon Spell to Overcome Ill Health

Like the cycles of the moon, our health constantly waxes and wanes. For some people, the lows are minor – a head cold or slight backache, while for others, it may be high blood pressure or pneumonia. After you’ve had any serious symptoms looked after by a medical professional, you might want to focus on banishing negative emotions, like stress, regret, anger and guilt. They can also lead to health breakdowns, so you may want to combine one of those rituals with this one.

My Simple Wiccan Magick Dark Moon Spells eBook has a healing health spell which uses Ginger and Juniper.  Your touch stones, which you will use during the ritual and as a reminder afterwards, are Onyx and Quartz. These correspondences, plus a simple affirmation, may help boost your immune system and promote feelings of well-being.

Blessed be!

Full Snow Moon in Virgo Feb 22, 2016 Spells & Rituals

Full Snow Moon The full moon on February 22, 2016 is known as Snow Moon, Ice Moon or Wild Moon. The ruling sun sign is Pisces, which gives us a full earth moon in the opposite sign Virgo.  Wiccan rituals include spells to purify the mind, body and soul. Nature always fills a void, so any negative energy that you release must be consciously replaced with positive vibrations.

As this full moon occurs during daylight hours in the western hemisphere, (1:20 pm in Toronto and New York; 6:20 pm in London), you can place your tools and talismans out for cleansing and charging on the evening of February 21st.  You might want to perform your ritual on that date as well.

In Australia and the far east, the full moon reaches its peak in the morning of February 23rd, so you may perform rituals on the evening of the 22nd.

Wiccan Correspondences for February

Flowers: violets and primroses

Stones: amethyst and rock crystal.

February Full Moon Menu

Arugula salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Farfalle Pasta & Hot Sausage

Pears in Red Wine

If you need a purification spell for this February full snow moon, you will find one in my Simple Wiccan Magick Full Moon Spells & Rituals eBook along with recipes for the above menu. My Witches’ Cook Book has twenty seasonally-inspired menus with 56 simply delicious recipes for celebrating the 12 Full Moons and 8 Sabbats on the Wheel of the Year.

Wiccan Love Spell for Valentine’s Day February 14

heartcandle1.jpgAlthough Wiccans do not officially celebrate Valentine’s Day, there’s no reason why you can’t perform a simple love spell on February 14th to take advantage of all the good vibrations in the air.

Wiccan Spell to Attract a New Love

For many people, even the thought of looking for a new partner can be daunting. But you’ve probably heard of people who found not one, but several admirers once they started dating again. Why is this so? The Law of Attraction states that “like attracts like,” so when you are happy, joyful and loving, you naturally attract people and situations that mirror your feelings.

This spell may help to place you in a positive, loving state of mind to draw a new love, (or maybe more than one!), into your life.

It requires a few simple items: a pink candle, vervain oil, lavender incense, pink paper, one pen with pen with blue ink and one with red ink.

If you need it, my Simple Wiccan Magick Love Spells eBook contains both a quick spell and the full ritual ceremony to help you find a new love, as well as eight more important love spells and a list of special Wiccan herbes for love magick.

The guided mediations will help focus your intent while the daily affirmations will reinforce your belief.

Blessed be!
