Full Storm Moon Spells & Rituals March 1, 2018 in Virgo

The March 1, 2018 full moon is called Storm Moon, Worm Moon or Crow Moon.  This is the first of two full moons in March and also the nearest one before Spring Equinox on March 20th.

Full Earth Moon in Virgo Spells

The ruling sun sign for this full moon is Pisces, which gives us a full earth moon in 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 the early evening hours in the western hemisphere, you may perform your ritual and cleanse and charge your tools and talismans on the same date.

March Correspondences

Flowers: daffodils and jonquils

Stones: aquamarine and bloodstone

March Full Storm Moon in Virgo Ritual

We often spend extra time indoors during winter and toxic energy can build up. My book Simple Wiccan Magick Spells for Everyday contains a ritual to cleanse and bless the home, so we will use this full moon to reduce any noxious vibrations within ourselves.

Advance Preparation

On the night of the full moon, you will take a bath with a special mix of cleansing herbes and meditate on the theme of spiritual cleansing and purification.  Later, during the ritual, you will write down any negative thoughts you’ve been feeling, fold them inside a black or dark blue envelope and safely burn them.

Remember, as this is the last full moon before the Spring Equinox on March 20, 2018 it is an ideal time to cleanse and charge your Witches’ tools and herbes for Ostara.

Blessed be!

Dark Moon Ritual to Relieve Heartache February 15, 2018

Moon worship has been around since the earliest days. As ancient civilizations used the changing cycles of the moon to plan and chart time, they discovered that special energies were active during different moon phases. Today, Wiccans use these correspondences to fulfill our dreams and align ourselves with the universe. The Dark Moon on February 15, 2018 is the perfect time to heal, renew and rebuild.

Dark Moon Ritual to Relieve Heartache February 15, 2018 ok

Most of us experience heartache from a lost or unrequited love at one time or another. We generally recover and move on to the next relationship, a little older and wiser. A serious problem arises when we’re unable to let go of the past. Such a reaction can close us off to another loving relationship.

This spell uses  Bay Laurel, lemon and/or Lemon Balm for love, in any form you choose, e.g. Bay Laurel oil and Lemon incense. Your touch stone is Rose Quartz.

There is some ambiguity around the terms dark moon and new moon. For our purposes, we will follow the astrological version, which means the period after the waning moon and before the first crescent of light appears from the new moon.

Dark Moon Spells & Rituals contains 15 simple spells, including the one above,  that take advantage of the special energy the Dark Moon offers. All of the spells follow traditional correspondences using candles, crystals and herbes that are found easily and inexpensively through local or online retailers. They help to maximize the energy of these dark moon spells.

Blessed be!

Imbolc Candlemas February 1, 2018 Spells & Rituals

February 1st is the Wiccan festival of Imbolc, or Candlemas. Though we can finally see the days growing longer, we still require strength and fortitude to endure the rest of winter. In traditional Witchcraft, Imbolc is a time for initiation but we can also perform rituals to tap into hidden vibrations.

 

Imbolc Candlemas Ritual to Release Blocked Energy

If you need an Imbolc ritual, my Wheel of the Year eBook has a spell to help identify and release any hidden energy. NOTE: This ritual takes one and a half days to complete, as you will freeze a small crystal in moon water prior to performing the ceremony, so plan accordingly.

Imbolc Correspondences

Colours & Candles: white, silver, aqua

Herbes & Oils: bay, basil, hyssop, myrrh, sandalwood

Stones: crystal, amethyst, rose quartz

Imbolc Menu

Mixed Green salad, savory salmon loaf, bread pudding

You will find rituals and recipes for every Wiccan festival in my Wheel of the Year guide. My Witches’ Cook Book has recipes for each sabbat and full moon.

If you live in the southern hemisphere, (Australia, New Zealand, South America, etc.) you will be celebrating Lammas and doing spells to generate increased good fortune.

Blessed be and Happy Imbolc!

Hechizos y rituales 31 de enero de 2018 Super Luna Azul Eclipse

El 31 de enero de 2018, aparecerá una segunda luna llena. La Luna llena de Enero se conoce como la Luna del Lobo, Luna Tranquila o Luna Casta. Las flores asociadas con este mes son los claveles y las campanillas; las piedras son granate y azabache.

Esta luna llena tiene tres ocurrencias simultáneas emocionantes:

  • También es una Super Luna, ya que está más cerca de la Tierra de lo habitual
  • es una Luna Azul, ya que es la segunda luna llena en enero
  • es una Luna Roja, ya que habrá un eclipse lunar visible en muchas partes del mundo.

¡Así que el 31 de enero de 2018 habrá una Super Red Blue Moon! Planifica tus hechizos y rituales para aprovechar esta energía lunar extra. Además, como la luna llena ocurre temprano el día 31, es posible que desee realizar sus hechizos y rituales el 30 de enero.

Como el festival Wiccan de Imbolc ocurre el 1 de febrero, este es un momento ideal para limpiar y cargar sus herramientas.

Porque el signo solar es Acuario (21 de Enero al 19 de Febrero), la  luna llena es en Leo.

La luna llena de Leo es el momento ideal para soñar en grande, apuntar a las estrellas y lanzar tu buena fortuna. Muchas veces rechazamos lo que realmente queremos, simplemente porque no nos lo imaginamos sucediendo, así que este hechizo te ayudará a pensar en grande.

Si deseas un hechizo para crear grandes sueños o necesitas más información sobre los rituales y hechizos de luna llena de Febrero, puedes descargarte mi libro electrónico Magia Wiccana Simple Hechizos de Luna Llena.

¡Bendito seas!

Super Full Moon Blue Moon Eclipse January 31, 2018 Spells & Rituals

The full moon on January 31, 2018 is known as Wolf Moon, Quiet Moon or Chaste Moon. This full moon has three exciting simultaneous occurrences:

  • it is also a Super Moon, as it is closer to the Earth than usual
  • it is a Blue Moon , as it is the second full moon in January
  • it is a Red Moon, as there will be a lunar eclipse visible in many parts of the world. This usually makes the moon appear red.

So on  January 31st, 2018 there will be a Super Red Blue Moon!  Plan your spells and rituals to take advantage of this extra lunar energy. Also, as the full moon occurs early on the 31st, you may want to perform your spells and rituals on January 30th.

Also, the Wiccan festival of Imbolc happens on February 1st, so this is an ideal time to cleanse and charge your tools.

What is a Blue Moon?

Some sources state that a Blue Moon is the second full moon in a month, while the Farmers’ Almanac definition of a Blue Moon is the third full moon in a season with four full moons. Since each season typically has only three full moons with definite names for each, an extra moon could cause a mix-up, so the third moon is termed blue.

Other sources hold that a true Blue Moon only occurs once every three or four years, when a full moon happens twice in the same astrological sign.

Regardless, a Blue Moon is always an ideal time for powerful spells and ceremonies.  Since this blue moon occurs in the sun sign Aquarius (Jan. 21 ~ Feb. 19), so it is a full fire moon in the opposite sign of Leo. Wiccan traditions call for spells to increase wealth and prosperity.

Sun in Aquarius – January 21 – February 19

A full moon in Leo is an ideal time to boost your good fortune by thinking big. Often, we can’t even imagine realizing our dreams, but nothing happens without believing it first. My Full Moon Spells & Rituals eBook has a Spell for Building Bigger Dreams which will put you on the path to achieving your goals!

Advance Spell Preparation

This spell requires some advance preparation as you will need to find a picture of someone you admire.

Wiccan Festival Imbolc February 1st 2016

This full moon is the last one before the Wiccan festival of Imbolc on February 1st. My Simple Wiccan Magick Spells & Ritual Ceremony eBook has a spell for releasing trapped energy, which requires frozen moon water. If you plan to perform this spell, be sure to place a bottle of water in the light of the January full moon.

January Stones ~ garnet and jet

January Flowers ~ carnations and snowdrops

Blessed be and enjoy the extra lunar energy!

Yule or the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere occurs on Dec 21, 2017 at 11:28 AM EST.  It’s officially the first day of winter and at this time, the hours of daylight and darkness are equal.

Even in the midst of darkness, Wiccans begin to celebrate the return of more daylight using ritual themes of the Oak King, symbolic of  daylight hours, vanquishing the Holly King, symbolic of hours of darkness. Ceremonies and spells promoting personal alchemy are also traditional.

Yule ~ Winter Solstice Correspondences

Candles & Colours: red, green, gold and black

Incense & Oil: frankincense, cloves & orange

Stones: Turquoise, Jet

Micro New Moon Dark Moon December 18, 2017

The Dark Moon in December 2017 will occur on the 18th. It’s considered to be a Micro Dark Moon as the Full Moon on December 3rd was a Super Moon. This doesn’t mean that the energy for spell work will be less powerful. After all, your intent is what matters! To help prepare for Yule on December 21st, I recommend a ritual ceremony to release guilt.

December Dark Moon Spell to Defeat Guilt

If you’re guilty of a wrong-doing, you should rectify the situation as soon as possible. But many times you can’t; for example, someone has passed away, and your sense of guilt continues. This meditation will help you to make amends and feel more positively.

This spell uses Pine and Lavender  and your touch stone, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, is Okenite.

My Dark Moon Spells and Rituals eBook contains 15 simple Wiccan rituals to help you eliminate negative energy in your life. Unlike full moon spells, which are more powerful when done at certain times, these dark moon rituals can be performed according to your needs.

You may complete the full ceremony or a quick spell. Performing the entire ritual around an altar may help to focus your energies in a more powerful way, but remember, the most important part of any spell is your intent.

Blessed be!
