Imbolc Candlemas February 1, 2017 Wiccan Spells & Rituals

February 1st is the Wiccan festival of Imbolc, or Candlemas.  Even though the days are finally growing longer, we still need courage and inspiration to see us through until spring. Imbolc is traditionally a time for initiation, but it’s also a good opportunity to tap into hidden vibrations and release blocked energy.

Imbolc Candlemas Ritual to Release Blocked Energy

If you need an Imbolc ritual, my Wheel of the Year eBook Simple Wiccan Magick Spells & Ritual Ceremony has a spell to help identify any trapped energy and release it for your benefit. The spell takes one and a half days to complete, as you will freeze a small crystal in moonwater overnight before the ceremony.

Imbolc  Candlemas 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

The above recipes are in my Wheel of the Year guide or Witches’ Cook Book.

If you live in the southern hemisphere, (Australia, New Zealand, South America, etc.) you should read my posts on Lammas, the Wiccan festival of appreciation for prosperity. There is a wonderful ritual to generate more good fortune in your lives.

Blessed be and Happy Imbolc or Lammas!

January 28, 2017 Dark Moon Spell Against Loneliness

dark-moon-spells-ritualsAncient pagans and modern Wiccans know that different phases of the moon have magickal properties. 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 January 2017, the dark moon phase is around the 28th, depending on your location. Check a reliable almanac for the exact time to perform your ceremony

January Dark Moon Spell to Alleviate Loneliness

My eBook Dark Moon Spells and Rituals 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 rituals can be performed according to your needs.

This month, I’ve decided to focus on a Dark Moon Spell to Alleviate Loneliness. For many of us, shorter days and bad weather can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. This sensation can also be brought on by the loss of a loved one through death or the end of a relationship, or maybe you’ve moved to a new location and haven’t met new friends yet.

This Dark Moon ritual uses Angelica, Juniper and Cucumber and the touch stone Snowflake Obsidian to place you in a more positive frame of mind. These items, along with a simple affirmation, will help you make you feel comfortable with your self, so you’ll be better able to attract and enjoy the company of others.

Blessed be!

January 12, 2017 Full Moon in Cancer Spells & Rituals

January Full Wolf Moon RitualsThe full moon on January 12, 2017 is known as Wolf Moon, Quiet Moon or Chaste Moon. Because the full moon occurs while the sun sign is Capricorn, (December 22 – January 20), this is a full water moon in the opposite sign of Cancer.

January flowers are carnations and snowdrops.

January stones are garnet and jet

First Quarter Moon Return to a Former Love Spell December 7

LoveSpellsEbookDo you believe you deserve a second chance with a former love? Sometimes, we realize the end of a relationship is inevitable and appropriate, but at other times, we may wish for the return of an old love.

The first quarter of the moon on December 7, 2017 is an ideal time for taking practical action to reach your goals. This spell, or another from my eBook Simple Wiccan Magick Love Spells, may help such an opportunity to manifest.

Simple Wiccan Return to an Old Love Spell

You may choose to complete a quick or full ceremony; both are described in my book. Performing the entire ritual around an altar may help to focus your energies in a more powerful way, but as always, the most important part of any spell is your intent. Either way, you will need a paper photograph of you and your old love, a mauve or lavender-coloured candle, angelica oil, rosemary incense and a pen with blue ink.

A simple daily affirmation will help to channel your energies towards a positive outcome.

Blessed be!

Dark Moon Spells to Conquer Anger December 29, 2016

dark-moon-spells-ritualsThe December 2016 Dark Moon occurs on the 29th.  As there was a super moon on December 13th,  this micro dark moon will be an ideal time to release negative energy as we head towards the darkest months of the year. The dark moon is the period after the waning moon and before the first crescent of light appears from the new moon. Wiccans traditionally use this time to initiate change and renewal.

Dark moon energy is like all vibration – it causes an effect even though you can’t see it.

My eBook Dark Moon Spells and Rituals 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 rituals can be performed according to your needs.

Dark Moon Spell to Conquer Anger

This month, I’ve focused on a spell to conquer anger. For most people, December is a reminder that the year is almost over. Many of us find this discovery stressful, especially combined with all we have to do during this busy month.

Stress can lead to anger, rage and being short-tempered. Feeling this way on a regular basis can lead to physical and emotional ailments. Wouldn’t it be nice to find relief from anger?

This spell uses Cinnamon, Passionflower and Sandalwood,  the touch stones Blue Lace Agate and Howlite and a simple affirmation to help control any episodes of anger or rage.

Blessed be!
