Dark Moon Spells 7 Rituals July 4, 2016

Dark Moon Spells RitualsThe July 2016 Dark Moon will occur on the 4th. 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.  Modern Wiccans follow their pagan ancestors and use the magickal properties of different moon phases to empower their spells and rituals.

This month, we will focus on a dark moon spell to master stress. Some people accept stress as a by-product of modern times, but it can lead to mental and physical breakdown. This ritual will help you to focus on the good things in your life that can be difficult to appreciate when stress clouds your vision.

My Simple Wiccan Magick Dark Moon Spells eBook has a ritual to help transcend this state of mind. It uses Borage to fortify your inner self and Celery Seed to improve your concentration. Your touch stones, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, are Smoky Quartz and Moonstone. You will also learn a simple affirmation to help keep you focused.

Blessed be!

Full Moon Wiccan Spells & Rituals June 20, 2016

Full Moon Strawberry MoonA full moon will appear in the sun sign Gemini on June 20, 2016. This results in a fire moon in Sagittarius. Also called Strawberry Moon, Mead Moon, Honey Moon or Rose Moon. Wiccans traditionally use this time for spells to promote healing, forgiveness, independence and intuition. Spells related to higher education and long-term journeys are also ideal.

Decorate your altar with roses and lavender. June stones are agate and pearls. Suggested menu is BBQ chicken, sweet potato fries and strawberry cake. You might also want to celebrate this full moon with a glass of mead.

This June full moon occurs at 7:02 a.m. in Toronto and New York City, approximately 11 ½ hours before the Wiccan Wheel of the Year festival of Midsummer, so you may decide to celebrate both occasions at once.

June Full Moon Pendulum Spell for New Beginnings

My Full Moon Spells and Rituals eBook has a simple spell using a pendulum, or you can follow your own ritual to ask the same question. You should use a purple candle and frankincense oil and incense. Tapping into your subconscious and thus, the power of the universe, will help set your course with confidence.
