Wiccan Fall Equinox Autumn Rituals September 22, 2016

Autumn Equinox SabbatThis year the Autumn Equinox, or first day of fall, takes place on September 22. On the Wiccan Wheel of the Year, the Autumn Equinox  is a time for spells and rituals relating to organizing, planning for the future, finding balance and rest after labour. The hours of light and darkness are equal, just as they are at the Spring Equinox.

Long ago, the fall season was a time of hard work for many people. Fields were harvested and preparations were made for the long, cold winter ahead. Today, Wiccans use this festival to examine their personal progress to date and adjust their plans for the future.

Or, you may just need some great recipes, like those in my Witches’ Cook Book.

If you live in the southern hemisphere, you’ll want to read about the Spring Equinox or Ostara and the Balancing Eggs ritual.

Blessed be!

Full Moon Eclipse Spells & Rituals September 16, 2016

Full Hay Moon JulyOn September 16, 2016, a full water moon will appear in the sign of Pisces, opposite to the sun sign Virgo. It’s known as Harvest Moon, Wine Moon or Singing Moon. There will also be a penumbra eclipse. This type of eclipse happens when the moon enters the penumbra, an area of the Earth’s shadow which is not completely hidden from the sun’s rays. This results in a lighter shadow and thus, a less dramatic Lunar eclipse.

The September 16 moon is full at 3:05 p.m. in New York and Toronto, 12:05 p.m. in Vancouver and Los Angeles. 8:05 p.m. in London and 5:05 a.m. Sept. 17 in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.  The best viewings for this lunar eclipse will be in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Western Pacific.

September Flowers: Aster and morning glory

September Stones: Blue sapphire and citrine

Spell to Increase Your Psychic Powers

As this full moon occurs in the western hemisphere early in the morning of Aug 18, (5:27 a.m. in Toronto and New York), and mid-day in most of Europe, you can perform your rituals and leave your tools and talismans to charge on the night of August 17th.  In Eastern Australia, the moon reaches its peak at 7:27 p.m. on the 18th, so you can perform your ceremony at that time.

Dark Moon Spells & Rituals Aug 2, 2016 Dispel Bad Energy

Dark Moon Spells RitualsThe August 2016 dark moon will happen on the 2nd in the morning or early afternoon, depending on where you live, so the best time to perform your spells & rituals might be on August 1st, during your Lammas celebration.

The dark moon is the period after the waning moon and before the first crescent of light appears from the new moon and it’s an ideal time to initiate change and renewal.  Dark moon energy is like all vibration – it causes an effect even though you can’t see it.

The Law of Attraction states that “like attracts like,” so wouldn’t you want to attract only the highest and the best? This ritual can help you to bring more positive emotions and good vibrations into your life, an ideal sentiment that complements Lammas traditions of appreciation and completion.

My Simple Wiccan Magick Dark Moon Spells eBook has a ritual to help transcend this state of mind. The Spell to Discharge Negative Energy (Chapter 8) uses Sage to remove negativity and Basil for courage. Your touch stone, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, is Hematite. You will also learn a simple affirmation to increase your focus.

Blessed be!
