Use Rune markings for two similar things you want to bring into your life. Here is a picture of the alphabet:

This is a chart of the Runes and their meanings. I keep a copy of this in my BOS for reference occasionally. Between knowing the Tarot, then the Runes, a witch's brain does tend to get overloaded and need a cheat sheet.

You will be engraving your candle during the ritual. Please see comment below for correct way to draw your rune.

During a circle when asked if you, “Come in perfect love and perfect trust” it is referring to you coming into the circle trusting and loving not only in your brothers and sisters in the circle but in the spiritual path you are following also.

Today some of us are in the waning part of the day and the waxing part of the night. While others are in the waxing part of the night and the waning part of the day. This is the reason for calling in the Moon goddess Luna and the Sun god Ra. Some of you may prefer to work with only Luna or Ra while others prefer to work with both, either way, you feel comfortable in doing this is acceptable.

RITUAL

LADY BELTANE: I call upon Air to enter the Watchtower of the East. To protect all of those here today.

I call upon Fire to enter the Watchtower of the South. To protect all of those here today.

I call upon Water to enter the Watchtower of the West. To protect all of those here today.

I call upon Earth to enter the Watchtower of the North. To protect all of those here today.

I call upon Spirit to stand beside each of us for protection today.

With Luna and Ra I walk this circle three times three to protect and lend their power to all who are gathered here today. I take us to a place that is out of time and our normal plane of existents. I ask you to all come to this plane in perfect love and perfect trust.

EVERYONE: Please type in “I come in perfect love and perfect trust.” Your name and what country or state you live in.

LADY BELTANE:  While engraving your runes into your candle visulize the things you want coming into your life. You have 2 minutes to do this. When you are finished type in “So Mote It Be.” We will take an addition 2 minutes for you to meditate on your life being better with these two things in it.

 

LADY BELTANE: I dismiss Earth from the Watchtower of the North with our love and thanks.

I dimiss Water from the Watchtower of the West with our love and thanks.

I dismiss Fire from the watchtower of the South with our love and thanks.

I dismiss Air from the Watchtower of the East with our love and thanks.

I dismiss Spirit from standing beside each of us with our love and thanks.

I walk this circle widdershins with Luna and Ra to bring us back into time and our plane of exsitenist.

I dismiss Luna and Ra with our love and thanks for protecting us and lending their powers to help us bring thingd needed into our life.

The circle is open but not broken. Merry part until we merry meet again.

FULL MOON FOR FEBRUARY 2017

FEBRUARY FULL MOON NAMES

February’s full Moon is traditionally called the Full Snow Moon because usually the heaviest snows fall in February.

Hunting becomes very difficult, and so some Native American tribes called this the Hunger Moon.

Other Native American tribes called this Moon the “Shoulder to Shoulder Around the Fire Moon” (Wishram Native Americans), the “No Snow in the Trails Moon” (Zuni Native Americans), and the “Bone Moon” (Cherokee Native Americans). The Bone Moon meant that there was so little food that people gnawed on bones and ate bone marrow soup.

See more about the month’s Full Moon names and their meanings.

FEBRUARY FULL SNOW MOON VIDEO

Each month, we will explain the traditional names of the Full Moon along with some fascinating Moon facts. In this video, learn about the Full Snow Moon, “Moon weather,” and the horns of the new crescent Moon. Click below to watch the video

Moon Phases

I came across a nice blog post that goes into more information about Moon phases.  They really explained how to know if the Moon is waning or waxing.  I was glad to learn this since I tend to have a hard time remembering which is which!  You can read the blog post at the following link:

The strawberry full moon makes this summer solstice a super rare thing

This year the heavenly bodies seem to have conspired to sweeten the pot with an event we haven’t seen in 70 years.

The summer solstice isn’t a rare event, a full moon even less so. But they’re both special, and when they just so happen to occur on the same day, as they will this year? That’s once-in-a-lifetime special.

The 2016 North American summer solstice happens on June 20, 2016 at 6:34 PM EDT. That’s the very moment when, essentially, the sun stands still at its northernmost point as seen from Earth. Its zenith doesn’t yearn north or south, but waits patiently at the Tropic of Cancer before switching directions and heading south again. This is where the word solstice comes from; the Latin solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop).
