Super New Moon Dark Moon May 25, 2017

The May 2017 Dark Moon occurs on the 25th. This dark moon is special as it is a Super New Moon or Dark Moon. This means the new moon takes place when it is closest to Earth, giving it extra power.

The dark moon, or new moon, is the period after the waning moon and before the first crescent of light appears from the new moon. 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.  The Dark Moon is the ideal time to initiate change and renewal.

This month, we will focus on a dark moon spell to release regret. Although regret can be a negative emotional experience,  it can also be valuable, if we learn from it and release it.

My Simple Wiccan Magick Dark Moon Spells eBook has a ritual to help transcend negative emotional experiences. During the ritual, you will use Hyssop for cleansing and Jasmine for protection.  Lapis Lazuli will be your touch stone, used during the spell and as reminder after, to help dissolve emotional bondage.

Blessed be!

Dark Moon April 26, 2017 Spell to Get Over Jealousy or Envy

dark-moon-spells-ritualsAncient pagans and modern Wiccans know that different phases of the moon have magickal properties. In April 2017, the Dark Moon phase is around the 26th, depending on your location. The dark moon is the period after the waning moon and before the first crescent of light appears from the new moon, and is the ideal time to initiate change and renewal. Check a reliable almanac for the exact time to perform your ceremony.

Dark Moon Spell to Get Over Envy or Jealousy

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 focused on a spell to help you get over envy or jealousy, just in time to prepare your heart for a happy Beltane, the Wiccan feast of Love and Creativity, on May 1st. The aura of love will be everywhere, so why not tap into these good vibrations?

Envy and jealousy are technically different emotions but they both make us feel inadequate. Envy is when we desire what another already has and jealousy is when we feel the threat of losing someone or something.

This Dark Moon spell uses Tarragon and Lavender. Touch stones, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, are Peridot and Melanite Garnet. These correspondences, plus a simple affirmation, will help you to eliminate envy and jealousy from your life.

Blessed be!

Spring Equinox Spells & Rituals March 20, 2017

wicca eggsThe first day of spring is known as Ostara and is one of eight festivals on the Wiccan Wheel of the Year. Also known as the Spring Equinox,  this is the time when the hours of  light and dark are equal.  It occurs on March 20, 2017 in the northern hemisphere.

Ostara was the Goddess of Spring and many of our modern customs, such as spring cleaning and Easter celebrations with eggs, rabbits and hot crossed buns, are founded on ancient Pagan rituals. Spells to promote balance in your life are traditionally performed at Ostara, but you can also use this as an opportunity for cleansing, healing and renewing ceremonies.

Ostara ~ SPRING EQUINOX CORRESPONDENCES

Flowers: daffodil, jonquil, violet, dogwood, spring bulbs

Stones: bloodstone

Ostara Menu:

Rose Wine, Eggs,

Lamb & Barley Stew

Hot Crossed Buns

OSTARA SPRING EQUINOX RITUAL

My Wiccan Wheel of the Year Guide has recipes for your celebration along with a “Ritual of the Balancing Eggs.” This ceremony requires a bit of advance preparation, to prepare the hard boiled eggs. You could also use chocolate Easter eggs, or hollow plastic eggs, as long as the colours correspond to the ones listed. You could even write the meanings of the different colours on paper and place them inside each plastic egg.

Regardless of the eggs you buy, you will use your intuition and the potent colour correspondences of the chakras, either as a solo practitioner or with like-minded people, to understand how to channel your energy for the coming year.

If you need a simple cleansing spell for your home, you will find it in my Simple Wiccan Magick™  Spells for Everyday book.

Blessed be and Happy Ostara!

Dark Moon Spell to Release Sorrow March 28, 2017

dark-moon-spells-ritualsModern Wiccans and ancient pagans have used the different phases of the moon to create magick. 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 March 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

March Dark Moon Spell to Release Sorrow

My eBook Dark Moon Spells and Rituals contains 15 simple Wiccan rituals to help you eliminate negative energy in your life. Full moon spells are more powerful when done during the full moon, but dark moon rituals can be performed as you need them.

This month, I’ve chosen to focus on a Dark Moon Spell to Release Sorrow. Sorrow can easily overwhelm us and if we hold sad memories for a lengthy period, they can become a habitual way of thinking. Such feelings can lead to depression and isolation. Joy is our birthright, so be confident that if you ask, you will receive it.

My Simple Wiccan Magick Dark Moon Spells eBook has a ritual to release sorrow. It requires Borage, Coriander and Myrrh.  Your touch stone, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, is Lavender Jade. These correspondences, plus a simple affirmation, may help to release any sorrow and negative energy which is holding you back from true happiness.

Blessed be!

Spells & Rituals Full Storm Moon Virgo March 12, 2017

Simple Spells for Everyday

Simple Spells for Everyday

The March 12, 2017 full moon is called Storm Moon, Worm Moon or Crow Moon. The ruling sun sign 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 daylight hours (10:53 AM EST) in the western hemisphere, you should place your tools and talismans out for cleansing and charging on the evening of March 11th.  You might want to perform your ritual on that date as well.

March Correspondences

Flowers: daffodils and jonquils

Stones: aquamarine and bloodstone

March Full Earth 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.

Spring Equinox March 20, 2017 March Equinox in Toronto, Ontario, Canada is on Monday, March 20, 2017 at 6:29 am EDT

This is the last full moon before the Spring Equinox on March 20 so it is an ideal time to cleanse and charge your Witches’ tools and herbes for Ostara.

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.
