Black Moon Dark Moon August 21, 2017 Spells & Rituals Solar Eclipse

On August 21, 2017, there will be a Black Moon Dark Moon, which will coincide with a total solar eclipse, also known as The Great American Eclipse, because of the viewing area.

There are several definitions of a Black Moon – the second Dark Moon in a calendar month (like a Blue Moon is the second Full Moon in a calendar month), the 3rd New Moon or Dark Moon in a season of 4 Dark Moons, as each season normally has only 3 Full Moons and 3 Dark Moons. Black Moons also happen, albeit very infrequently, when the month of February has neither a Full Moon or Dark Moon and so both January and March will have two of each.

For this powerful and potent Black Moon Dark Moon on August 21st, I have chosen a spell to remove negative energy from your life. Negative energy is like all vibration – it causes an effect even though you can’t see it. This ritual can help clear the path for you to manifest more positive emotions and thus attract more good vibrations.

It uses Sage to remove negative energy and Basil for courage. Your touch stone, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, is Hematite for dispelling negativity. You will also learn a simple affirmation to increase your focus.

My eBook Dark Moon Spells and Rituals has 15 unique spells suitable for Dark Moon magick and you may choose to perform a different ceremony on this Black Moon Dark Moon.

Blessed be!

Dark Moon New Moon July 23, 2017 Spells & Rituals

In July 2017,  the dark moon phase is on the 23rd at 5:45 AM Eastern Time. Check a reliable almanac for the exact time for your own location. If it occurs early in the morning, you may want to perform your dark moon ritual on the evening of July 22nd.

Ancient 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.

July Dark Moon Spell to Deal with Financial Loss

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.

The Wiccan festival of Lammas  occurs on August 1st and is a traditional time for prosperity and appreciation spells. But how can you feel successful and thankful if you feel poor and worried?

Even if lack of money isn’t an immediate problem for you, there may have been times when you made a poor business decision or investment, or were concerned about losing your job. Regardless of the cause, the main issue is that you’re feeling less than prosperous and grateful.

This simple spell from my Dark Moon Spells & Rituals eBook will help drive out the negative aura surrounding a real or perceived lack of financial resources.

You will need Cedar and Acorns, Frankincense and Marigold. Your touch stones, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, are Yellow Sapphire, Sardonyx or Jet. These correspondences, plus a simple affirmation, will prepare you to receive all the blessings of Lammas.

Blessed be!

Summer Solstice Spells Rituals June 21, 2017

Midsummer or the summer solstice marks the longest day of the year. In Wiccan traditions, the Holly King vanquishes the Oak King and we begin our slow and steady descent toward the darkness of winter.

In 2017, the summer solstice or Midsummer occurs on June 21 at 12:24 a.m. Eastern Time (Toronto and New York City). You can therefore conduct your ritual on the evening of June 20th or June 21st.

On the Wiccan Wheel of the Year, Midsummer is an ideal time for spells and rituals to help you find direction, solutions to your problems and the determination to resolve them. You may ask yourself, “What did I want to accomplish to date?  What have I accomplished? What is still left to do before the end of the summer?”

Midsummer Spell for Direction and Resolution

My book includes both a quick spell and a full ritual ceremony. You will need the following items: one gold candle, vervain oil and rosemary incense.

Use the oil to anoint the candle and your forehead. Light the candle and the incense and sit silently for a few moments, then ask the Goddess Diana to guide your meditation.

You will perform the following meditation:

Half the year is now over. It is time to face any problems or dilemmas that require immediate attention. No matter how insignificant a situation may seem, if it comes to mind now, a solution is worth pursuing!

You may already have a special Midsummer ceremony, or you may want to create your own. The following information will be helpful:

Midsummer /Summer Solstice Correspondences

Theme: strength, reward, confidence, decision making

Oil: lavender, vervain, elder

Candles: red, yellow, orange

Flowers: honeysuckle, lavender, roses, rue, any red, yellow & orange flowers

Incense: rosemary

Stones: agate, pearl, moonstone

Midsummer/Summer Solstice Menu

Decorate your midsummer table with yellow, gold, orange and red candles and an arrangement of honeysuckle, lavender, roses, vervain and any red, yellow and orange flowers. Tuck a few rue and rosemary sprigs into your arrangement.

Serve with a fresh cucumber salad and glass of elderflower wine or Riesling.

Midsummer Menu

Herbed Tomato Soup

Pesto Rotini Pasta

Herb & Flower Shortbread

You will find recipes for the menu above in my Wheel of the Year guide, plus a simple spell and meditation for direction and resolution. You will need vervain oil, rosemary incense and one gold candle.

My Witches’ Cook Book has recipes for every Sabbat, plus 12 full moons for a total of 56 recipes.

Blessed be and Happy Midsummer!

Micro Full Strawberry Rose Moon June 9, 2017 Spells & Rituals

May 22 – June 21 ~Full Fire Moon in Sagittarius

On June 9, 2017, a full fire moon will appear in the sign of Sagittarius. This June full moon is known as Mead Moon, Strawberry Moon, Honey Moon or Rose Moon. In Wiccan traditions, this is an ideal time for spells to bring about success in learning and long-term travel. Healing, intuition and independence are also highlighted.

This full moon occurs at 9:09 AM EDT, so you may want to perform your rituals on the evening of June 8th. Because of the Super New or Dark Moon last month (May 25), this is known as a Micro Full Moon.  However, there will still be ample energy for your spells and rituals!

You can use this full moon to cleanse and charge your Witches’ tools and herbes, to prepare them for your spellwork for Midsummer, or the Summer Solstice, on June 21st.

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.

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!
