New Year spells and rituals
To Refresh Your Spirit For The New Year
This is not for making new years resolutions which are usually broken by most
people. Instead this is to inspire New Spirit for the New Year. It is to purify
and to refresh your spirit. It should be performed in the morning and then again
in the evening. It should also be done outside, but if this is not possible then
In the morning go outside and immerse your hands in the snow( if performing
inside then immerse in a bowl or basin of chilled water) until they are chilled
through, then anoint your brow and say...
"substance wasted, substance spoiled,
now be redeemed.
Seeing thyself in substance undefiled,
forming thyself a new from this frail substance
gathered and revived."
Repeat in the evening
Snow Person Healing Spell
Make a mini-snow person that represents your friend or relative. Make twenty-one
As you make each snowball, think of your friend and of banishing the illness
from him or her.
Set the snowballs around the person to form anice circle. Chant the following:
Surround her, enfold her, heal her, hold her,
Walk around the snowballs in a counterclockwise (widdershins) direction as you
chant. Clap if you think no one is watching.
When you feel you are finished, hold your hands towards the snow person and say:
Winter winds on a winter day
Winter sun melt her troubles away.
Wheel revolve, death to birth
Air to fire, water to earth!
May this spell not reverse, or place upon me any curse.
May all astrological correspondences be correct for this working.
So mote it be!
With your finger or your wand, carve a wish into the snow. Ask the goddess to
grant your wishes. Draw a circle around the wish you wrote in the snow for it
will symbolize the closing of the circle through actions to make your wish come
Write a wish on a piece of paper and bury it in the snow under a tree near you
or where you find peace. Wait for the snow to melt.
