Full Corn Moon August 18, 2016 Spells & Rituals

CornMoonAugustMagickspellsOn August 18, 2016, a full air moon will appear in Aquarius, the opposite of the sun sign Leo. It’s known as Corn Moon, Barley Moon or Sturgeon Moon. In Wiccan traditions, this full moon is an ideal time for rituals and spells to promote networking, resolve disputes and use your personal power for the greater good.

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!
