September 1, 2016 Luna Eclipse/New Moon

Tonight is not only time for New or Dark Moon magic, it is also a Lunar Eclipse. With that in mind, I wanted to remind you that spells and/or rituals will be strong than usual and a different type of energy will be at work. Spellwork under an eclipse should only be done by witches with advanced training as it takes a lot more focus and intention to have the spell work hopefully right than most beginners to The Craft have learned to do. Also just because you are an experienced witch does not guarantee your spell working properly when done under a Lunar Eclipse. Beginner/novice witches would better use this time in a mediation session inside a sacred circle.

Besides the informational posts the follow this one, here is a link for a general search on Google for lunar eclipse spells and magic: https://www.google.com/search?q=lunar+eclipse+spells&oq=lunar+eclipse+spells&aqs=chrome..69i57.13703j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Eclipse Meditation Ritual

Eclipses are opportunities for major transformation; this is a time when the energies of the lunations ar more amplified and focused.

Solar eclipses always occur on the New Moon, and Lunar eclipses occur on the Full Moon. The eclipses reflect the lunation they correspond to, but they’re much more intense and their effects are more long-lasting, so it is a powerful time for rituals of transformation and release.
Eclipse Meditation Ritual
You will need:
a white candle
salt
purified or spring water
incense
small pieces of paper and pen

Take a ritual bath (add hyssop and lavender if you have it, salt if you do not) and visualize yourself releasing any blocks and fears, and affirm that you are ready to take yourself to the next level, and face the truth with an open heart and mind.

After your bath, sit in front of your altar, and do some basic grounding and rhythmic breathing. (You can ground by imagining your spine growing roots that grow down into the earth, and with each inhale, breathe in the energy from the core of the Earth… with each exhale, release anything you need to release, i.e. fears, doubt, sadness, apathy, etc. The earth can turn almost anything into fertilizer, so transform your “negatives” into something you can use!)

Drumming is a great way to get you in the correct meditationalstate as well… one of the fastest ways to reach alpha state is to follow the tempo of the heartbeat with your drum.

Pour the salt into the water, and clear yourself with it by lightly sprinkling yourself and annointing yourself with it.

Light your candle. Meditate on the symbolism of the flame, that fire transforms and illuminates, and stare into the flame for a while, and ask for clarity and truth during this eclipse cycle. Give yourself permission to release any and all thought formsthat no longer serve your highest good.

1.a. What area of my life needs some new ideas and a fresh perspective?

b. Write it down on a small piece of paper, and create an affirmation supporting your new goal.

2.a. How can I break through restrictive “safe” constructs, to be fully alive and, like the Phoenix, be reborn thru transformation?
Repeat step “b”.

Save those pieces of paper for later.

3. Write down on the remaining pieces of paper (one at a time) what keeps you from achieving the goals you are after… focus on it, then say something like:
“All energy is neutral. I now release and transform this energy into an energy source that can be utilized for the highest good for all concerned (or “in the name of Goddess / Universe /
God / Creator” etc.)

Burn the paper, focusing on the transformation of the energy.
When you feel like you’re clear, thank the Deities, energies, spirits, guides, angels, etc. you’ve worked with, and bury the ashes in the earth, and imagine your goals for transformation fulfilled. Blessed Be.

The use of symbols can sometimes help make a spell more powerful… let your imagination guide you as you set up your personal lunar altar.

– use white or silver candles and altar cloths

– Lunar Goddesses: Isis, Artemis, Diana, Hecate, Kwan Yin

– Lunar Herbs: mugwort, camphor, sandalwood

-Lunar Metal: silver

– Lunar Stones: moonstone, selenite, pearl, mother of pearl, sapphire

– draw the symbol for the Moon on your candles

– make a medicine bag representing what you want to transform and consecrate it; carry your medicine bag next to your skin

– tell no one about your spell work!

– make a strong floor wash out of mugwort and a pinch of camphor, and clean ritual area and psychic tools with it.

What are Chakras?

Chakras, by definition, are energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to to the immune system and emotions. We can commonly count 7 chakras positioned throughout your body, from the base of your spine to the crown of your head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, that is depicted through a specific chakra color, and governs specific functions that help make you, well, human.

Introducing The 7 Major Chakras

Let’s start with a brief definition. What is a chakra? A chakra (pronounced “cha”-“kra” with a resounding “ch”) is a center of energy. Originating from Sanskrit, it literally means “wheel” by association with its function as a vortex of spinning energy interacting with various physiological and neurological systems in the body.
