WHAT YOU WILL NEED

Zodiac candle– A candle representing ‘your intent in your astrological house’                            (please refer to the chart below)                                                                                   Note: if you do not have a colour representing your intent in the candle please just inscribe on the candle the symbol of your zodiac

Orange candle– to represent change

Dark or black candle– to protect against and send away ill luck

Essential oil of your choice: such as rosemary, thyme, frankincense.                             Note: if you don’t have any essential oils you can use olive oil.

Incense of your choice- to burn before, during and after the ritual. Please light this while you are preparing your sacred space to neutralize the energy.

Note: Pillar candles or smaller round candles are required in order to allow them to burn within a reasonable time. The candles need to burn all the way. If there is any wax left, please ensure you give this to the Great Mother by placing in the earth. (Natural candle wax is best for this).

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Please refer to the chart that I have compiled indicating the corresponding colours and the intent for your particular Zodiac. Please take the time to go through this useful chart. It will be of great assistance for future reference.

COLOURS AND THE ZODIAC

The theme is- Instigating Change:

 

The Witches’ Alchemy is powerful indeed.

Please use this time to master the frequency of tuning into your spiritual practice to instigate the changes necessary for your development as a magical practitioner.

During the Solstice that is coming up in the next week or so, the veil will be thin, allowing better communication between the worlds. Doing this work during this full moon will allow your frequency to better shift to the energies of the Great Mother and Father.

 

Your Sacred Space:

Take care to prepare your sacred space before the ritual, if you are unable to burn incense, please use the power of intention such as a white light showering you and your surroundings. Ensure that you have all that you need at hand. The more prepared you are, the more effective the spell. Go through the check list of things that you need above, do this just before the ritual begins.

You can look in your astrological house and decorate your space with the colours representing the intent that you would like to illuminate and instigate change.

Decorate your altar with sprigs of Rosemary for extra protection.

 

The Ritual Explained:

Tonight we will be honoring the Great Goddess of the Strawberry (June) full moon. Elementally the strawberry is linked to water and connected with Venus, Freya and Aphrodite making it appropriate for out transformation.

MONDAY is the day of the MOON- this will increase the energy of the spell work for the Full Moon Ritual.

The moon is positioned at 25 Degrees in Sagittarius. This brings a dynamic and expanding approach to our spiritual practice in our lives helping us to propel ourselves forward.

Ruled by Jupiter this energy of change and expansion is magnified, so it’s a wonderful time to make the most of it.

Stationary Neptune will become retrograde after this time magnifying the planets power. This makes it a wonderful time to concentrate on a devotion greater than yourself.

 

NOW LET THE RITUAL BEGIN

Casting the circle:

         To the Guardians of the East:

I call you into our Watchtowers to protect us.

 

         To the Guardians of the South:

         To the Guardians of the West:

I cast this circle three times three with the assistance of the Great Mother Selene the Triple Goddess and The Sun God Apollo.

I call Upon the Guardians of spirit to protect us from above and below. As is above so is below, as is below so is above.

Allow us to see beyond the veil- to the world of effects, of causes and meaning, and of beauty and power.

Protect us Great Mother Selene and Sun God Apollo for all gathered here and those afar who are unable to be with us. Allow no negative energy to touch us, to harm us and that nothing we call upon will harm us and others.

We come together in perfect love and perfect trust.

Drawing Down the Full Moon Ritual

Full Moon Ritual (with Drawing Down into moonstones)

A group of us got together to perform this ritual. It is based on one they did 5 years ago. At that time, they drew the moon down into one of the other participants so it originally had more protective elements built into that ritual. This is a shortened version for drawing down the moon into the Moonstones.

Thrice Cast, and Thrice released

Re-Ground (if needed)

Take a deep breath, and release it. Take another breath, following your breath to the swirling energy in your center. Feel the energy in your center. Feel how it fits inside you. Decide if you’ve got too much energy or not enough. On your next breath, let the energy move down to your feet. Now let it flow down into the earth like roots. Past the concrete, past the top soil, past the stones and bones of our ancestors. if you had too much energy, let the extra flow down into the warm center of the earth. If you need a little boost — you’ve got a bit of a cold or just need a little extra, bring some of that warm earth energy back up with your breath. When you feel that your energy balance is just right, pull your roots back in. and when you are ready, return to the group
