NEW Dark Moon Spells & Rituals eBook

Dark Moon Spells RitualsNow, you can channel the potent power of the Dark Moon, Wiccan correspondences and the Law of Attraction to help cast off your burdens. My seventh book on Wiccan magick is in pre-order and will be available November 18th, just in time for the next Dark Moon on November 22. I wrote it in response to many queries about using Dark Moon magick for healing, release and rebuilding.

Light on lore and heavy on simple, practical magick, this book is ideal for both novices and experienced practitioners, working alone or in a group.

Moon worship has been part of our history since the earliest days.  The constantly changing cycles of the moon enabled ancient civilizations to plan and chart time.  They also discovered that special energies were active during the different phases of the moon. Today, these connections are being rediscovered as we seek to fulfil our dreams and align ourselves with the universe. The dark moon is the perfect time to heal, renew and rebuild.

There are 13 full moons per year – one every 29.5 days. As each month has between 28 to 31 days, the dark moon will fall on a different day each month. When you perform dark moon spells, there must be no light showing, so be sure to check your almanac or calendar.

You can use Dark Moon Spells & Rituals as a stand-alone book, as a companion to my Wheel of the Year guide Simple Wiccan Magick Spells & Ritual Ceremony, or alongside any other Wicca books you may have. All of the 15 spells use traditional correspondences and are designed for today’s busy Neo-Pagans to maximize the energy of the dark moon, but they can be used any time.

In pre-order now at Barnes & Noble, Apple and Smashwords.

Blessed be!

Dark Moon Spell for Loneliness Oct. 23, 2014

This spell is from my soon-to-be released book Dark Moon Spells and Rituals.  I plan to make it available before Samhain. Remember to check a lunar calendar for the exact timing of the dark moon in your area.  You should perform this spell when the moon is totally dark.

DARK MOON SPELL TO RELEASE LONELINESS

Have you lost a loved one through death or the end of a relationship? Perhaps you’ve moved to a new location and haven’t met new friends yet. Whatever the reason for your loneliness, this spell will help you feel comfortable with your self. Once you’ve mastered the ability to enjoy your own company, you’ll be better able to attract the company of other like-minded people.

This spell uses Angelica and Juniper for good energy and Cucumber to bring peace. Cucumber clears negative thoughts from the subconscious so it is often used in spa treatments. Your touch stone, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, is Snowflake Obsidian to put you in the right frame of mind.

QUICK SPELL

You can also perform this as a full ritual ceremony.

Find a quiet, comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. You will need the following items: one orange colour candle, oil and/or incense, touch stone and two thin, round slices of cucumber.

If you’re using oil, anoint your forehead. Light the candle and the incense. Lie down and place one cucumber slice over each closed eye and hold the stone. Ask for the energy of the dark moon to guide your meditation. When you feel the time is right, say the following affirmation:

Alone but never lonely when the universe is mine. So mote it be.

Hold the touch stone and breathe deeply and slowly. Let your mind take you past the reaches of the dark moon and the stars, into the deep indigo night sky. You are on this journey alone, but you are never lonely. You carry the energy of every other being in the universe because we all come from the same source. Enjoy the serenity and comfort of these thoughts. Linger in this pleasant state for as long as you like.

When you feel ready, return at a slow pace, especially as you near the planet earth, part of which is cradled in the healing energy of the dark moon. Be aware of your new thoughts of connectivity and kinship with everything. As you touch down, perhaps on your street or in your workplace, imagine that you are surrounded by friends who want to know all about your journey. You wait to tell them until you have first heard what they have been doing while you were away. You then share the give-and-take of true friendship.

As your feelings of loneliness subside, remove and discard the cucumber, extinguish the candle and give thanks for your blessings.

Now, any time you feel lonely, remember your dark moon journey. You can give yourself a little “spa” break by lying down and using the cucumber slices as you did, above. Hold the touch stone, recall the affirmation and the comforting memories of connectivity. These actions will create a positive and lasting link in your mind.

Blessed be!

Spell for Samhain Oct 31, 2014 Halloween

Samhain SpellsSamhain, on October 31st,  is a traditional time for remembrance and release. It’s Halloween but it’s also considered by many to be the Witches’ New Year, so we also plan for the future by releasing any negative energy that stops us from attaining our goals. The following spell, from my Wheel of the Year Guide, will help set you on the path to a wonderful new year.

Samhain Spell for Remembrance and Release

Take the following items: one orange candle, one black candle, lavender oil, cedar incense, one small, flat stone, a black-ink pen and your Book of Shadows, into a quiet, comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. If the weather permits, you can even sit outside.

Anoint the candles and your forehead with the oil. Light the candles and the incense and sit silently for a few moments, holding the stone in your dominant hand. Close your eyes and ask the Goddess to guide your meditation. When you feel the time is right, say the following affirmation:

Out with the old, in with the new, the coming year will make dreams come true. So mote it be!

Gaze deeply into the candle flames and relax, calling up memories of your past.  Greet long-gone friends and ancestors, asking them what knowledge or wisdom they can offer you for the future. Listen carefully to their advice and suggestions, give thanks and move on.

Recall the highs and lows of the past year. Compliment yourself on your successes and forgive your failures. Bring positive images closer, brighter and in vivid colours. Turn negative thoughts into small, blurry black and white images and watch them recede into the background. Release any negative energy you feel towards yourself or others for mistakes. Move on.

Picture the coming year as you would like it to be – prosperous, filled with health, love, prosperity and satisfaction. Envision friends and loved ones happy and successful in their own way. Give this year a colour or colours of your choice, or even your personal colour. Picture this colour casting a glow over the upcoming year.

When you are finished, make notes in your Book of Shadows and give thanks for your blessings. As soon as you can, paint your stone in the colour you envisioned and write the year on it. Place it in a prominent place or carry it with you as a reminder of your dreams and goals.

You will find the full ritual ceremony, plus recipes for Samhain, in my Wheel of the Year Guide Simple Wiccan Magick Spells & Ritual Ceremony.

Blessed be!

Full Moon October 8, 2014 Rituals & Spells

Full Moon Hunter Moon October 18, 2013The full moon on October 8, 2014 is called Hunter’s Moon, Falling Leaf Moon or Blood Moon.  This full fire moon in Aries exudes positive energy and enhances your enthusiasm. It’s an ideal time for Wiccan spells and rituals to enhance boldness, daring deeds and audacity.

This full moon might also be a super moon, depending on whose definition you read. However, there will certainly be a lunar eclipse. Since the full moon and eclipse take place in the early morning hours of October 8, (6:50 AM EDT), you should do your spell work on the evening of the 7th and leave your tools and talismans out to charge overnight.

October Correspondences

Flowers: Calendula and Marigold

Stones:  Morganite or pink Emerald, Opals and Tourmaline.

Advance Preparation

Before the night of the full moon, find a photograph that shows you at your most joyous and enthusiastic.  Were you zip-lining through the jungle? Creating the perfect dish at a cooking class? Getting married or receiving an award?  It doesn’t matter whether the photo was taken ten days or ten years ago, what counts is your passionate expression.

Place this picture in a small frame. You can paint the frame orange or glue the photo to an orange background.

QUICK SPELL

Find a quiet, comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. You will need the following items: one orange candle, angelica oil and incense, a pen with blue ink, a self-portrait in an orange frame.

Use the oil to anoint the candle and your forehead. Light the candle and the incense and sit silently for a few moments, holding your photograph. Close your eyes and ask the Goddess or the Universe to guide your meditation. When you feel the time is right, say the following affirmation:

Full moon wish, joy and bliss.  May I always feel like this. So mote it be!

Hold the picture in your hands and recall the exact moment when your heart was filled with so much joy and enthusiasm. Chances are, you had to expend some effort to get to that state, but the end result was well worth it.  Hold the blissful feelings in your mind and make notes about the experience in your Book of Shadows. Write the affirmation down and dab the corners of the page with angelica oil.

When you are ready, give thanks for your blessings and extinguish the candle.

Menu

Cucumber salad with rice vinegar dressing and toasted sesame seeds.

Ginger Chicken Stew

Carrot Cake with Chocolate Glaze

If you need recipes or  the full ritual ceremony for the October Hunter moon, you will find them in my eBook Simple Wiccan Magick Full Moon Spells & Rituals,

Autumn Equinox Spells & Rituals September 22, 2014

The Autumn Equinox, or first day of fall, occurs on September 22, 2014. Also known as Mabon on the Wiccan Wheel of the Year, the Autumn Equinox is traditionally a time for spells and rituals pertaining to organization, future plans, self-discipline, balance and rest after labour. The hours of light and darkness are equal, just as they are at the Spring Equinox.

Not so long ago, fall was a period of hard work, harvesting the fields and preparing for the long winter ahead. Today, Wiccans use this festival to examine their year so far, and to adjust their plans for the future.

Autumn Equinox Correspondences

Colours: Orange, Brown, Yellow, Gold

Oil: Bergamot, Storax, Rosemary

Philtre: Motherwort, Blessed Thistle, Benzoin, Rosehips, Sage, Lavender

Candles: Yellow, Orange, Brown

Flowers: Hollyhock, Aster, Milkweed, Marigold, Bittersweet

Incense: Sage

Stones: Peridot, Citrine, Beryl, Chrysolite

A Preview of Your Future

If you need a ritual for Mabon, My Wheel of the Year guide has a meditation that will offer insight into your future. A portion appears below:

As you walk to the edge of the field, you notice one green stalk still unharvested, with a fresh ear of corn still attached.  You snap off the corn and anxiously pull down the husk. Instead of yellow kernels, the cob is studded with jewels and precious metals.

Remember what you see and write it down. You will check below later for the meaning of the jewelled cob! You put the “corn” in your pouch, give thanks and head home for a harvest feast with friends and loved ones.

Meanings for the following stones and metals are provided: Amber, Amethyst, Bloodstone, Diamond, Emerald, Garnet, Gold, Jade, Opal, Lapis lazuli, Pearl, Peridot, Ruby, Silver, Sapphire, Topaz, Turquoise.

Blessed be and Happy Autumn Equinox!

Wiccan Spells for September 8, 2014 Super Full Moon

On September 8, 2014, at 9:38 EDT, the third of three consecutive super full moons will appear. This full water moon is in the sign of Pisces, opposite to the sun sign Virgo. It’s known as Harvest Moon, Wine Moon or Singing Moon.

Wiccan rituals use this Piscean full moon to tap into clairvoyant powers, tell fortunes and interpret dreams.  Psychic powers are heightened now, as is the ability to communicate with the spirit world.

Supermoon

A supermoon is a full moon that appears within 24 hours of perigee, (when the moon is closest to the earth in its orbit). Since this orbit is elliptical, rather than circular, the moons distance to the earth varies. You might find that the energy is greater than usual, so use it to your advantage.

September Flowers: Aster and morning glory

September Stones: Blue sapphire and citrine

Spell to Increase Your Psychic Powers

A full moon in Pisces is the perfect time to tap into your clairvoyant powers, tell fortunes and interpret dreams.  Psychic powers are heightened now, as is your ability to communicate with the spirit world.  My book Simple Wiccan Magick Spells and Ritual Ceremony has a Samhain ritual for communing with those who have passed to the other side, so my Full Moon Spells & Rituals guide has a spell which uses Runes to help develop your inner sight.

Harvest Full Moon Menu

Mussels with Green Herbs

Oven-baked French Fries

Lemon Wafers

This full moon is also an ideal time to cleanse and charge your Witches’ tools in preparation for the Fall Equinox on September 23, 2014. All of my e-books on witchcraft are also available at Barnes & Noble and iTunes.

Blessed be!
