THIS IS A RITUAL, MORE THEN A SPELL
Virgo New Moon Ritual September 2018
This ritual is best done from September 5th-20th, 2018
You will need:
Smudging tool of choice
Comfy place to lie down with blankets/pillow
Relaxing music (here is my suggestion)
Your favorite crystal
Pen and paper
1.) Start by smudging your aura and surroundings. I really like incense for this ritual, but you can use whatever smudging tool you prefer. For more information on how to smudge, read this. As you smudge your aura and space, recite the following mantra-
“I cleanse this space/my energy with loving light energy. I remove all that no longer serves me. I feel the heaviness melting away. I feel light and free. I am safe. I am protected.”
2.) Take your smudging tool and leave it burning in a safe place near you. This is so it can continue to provide protection while you do this ritual. You can also light a candle if you prefer.
3.) Set up your music and then lay down on the floor in a comfy position. Keep yourself warm with blankets and use a pillow under your knees if you wish. Set your timer for 20-30 minutes. Have your pen and paper nearby for later.
4.) Place your crystal on top of your belly and then gently place your hands over the top. You can also place the crystal on your third eye or heart chakra if you wish too. Just use your intuition to guide you.
5.) Lay down and take 10 deep breaths to relax yourself. Breathe deep into your belly. Then ask yourself- “What is my dream life? If I could have anything, be anything or go anywhere, what would I do?”
Close your eyes and begin fantasising about your dream life. See and feel everything that you desire. Allow your imagination to take over, and really give yourself permission to go wherever you are lead.
Allow yourself to really daydream about the dream version of your life with no limits and no rules. It can be total fantasy or close to your real life, it doesn’t really matter. See yourself how you want to be, see your life how you want it to be.
6.) Once the timer goes off, pick up your pen and paper and begin writing down what you felt and experienced. What stood out to you? What emotions did your dream life conjure up for you? Write down whatever you think may be important.
7.) Now, think about what elements of your dream life can you bring into your present reality. How can you begin to create your dream life right now? Feel free to write whatever comes to mind, or if you need some extra guidance, perhaps make a list of 10 things you can do to begin to create your dream life right now. They don’t have to be big, even the smallest actions can count!
8.) Keep your piece of paper with your list of actions somewhere you can see it clearly. Remind yourself daily to take the steps you need to fulfil more of your heart’s desire.
Remember to snuff out your candle or smudging tool if necessary.
Happy New Moon!
Clear Dreams Spell
Spell Date: Monday, September 10, 2018
Color of the day: Lavender
Incense of the day: Hyssop
To make a Clear Dreaming Balm, place about 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon, frankincense, and rose petals in a small slow cooker or glass double boiler, and add enough coconut oil (about 2 tablespoons) to cover the herbs when melted. Cook for 3 to 3 1/2 hours in the double boiler or 13 hours in the slow cooker to completely infuse the herbs into the coconut oil. Strain, reheat, and add a few shavings of beeswax, plus a few drops each of sandalwood and lavender oil. While making this balm, chant:
"May my dreams be clear,
May my dreams be strong.
Let clarity reign all the night long."
Place a small amount of balm over your third eye as you’re getting into bed, while thinking hard about the question you’re seeking an answer to. Repeat the chant until sleep comes. Blessed dreams
Color of the day: Yellow
Incense of the day: Bay Laurel
I’ve found that the right magical adornment helps create magical atmosphere and space. But I like to keep it simple, and a magical shawl is a super way to do that.
Purchase 1 1/2 yards of fabric— your choice of color, texture, and pattern. (Hint: at this pre-Samhain time of year, fabric stores are loaded with materials in magical colors and patterns!)
Drape the fabric around your shoulders and determine the length and width needed to make a pleasant fit. Using scissors, trim the fabric to fit your measurements. Finish the edges by turning and sewing a simple hem, or, if you don’t sew, create a hem with iron-on fusible webbing. Even simpler? Use pinking shears to “pink” an edge.
Bless your shawl by placing it over your shoulders and saying:
"May this magical shawl ease my
way into the magical realm."
Charge it on your altar or in sunlight or moonlight for twenty-four hours.
Use your shawl when you read about, study, or work magic. Each time it settles around your shoulders, you’ll feel yourself slip into magical space.
