In October 2017, the Dark Moon occurs on the 19th. 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.
As this is the last Dark Moon before Samhain on October 31st, I have chosen a spell to release the emotional pain caused by family loss or death of a loved one. However, 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.
Dark Moon Spell to Surmount Family Loss or Death of a Loved One
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the passing of a loved one, those left behind experience a wide range of emotions from anger and guilt to regret and grief. This Dark Moon is a good time to ask for release from these painful feelings, to prepare you to greet your ancestors on Samhain, October 31st.
This spell uses Chervil, Dittany of Crete, Honeysuckle oil and Marjoram. Your touch stone, which you will use during the spell and as a reminder afterwards, is Kunsite, which heals and clears emotional fallout.
