Full Moon History The Full Moon lasts about three days. It is a very intense phase. Many women still ovulate with the Full Moon. This is the time to apply the most powerful herbs. Use cayenne capsules to treat infections of any kind. Goldenseal is a well-known herbal antibiotic. Echinacea and lomatium are anti-viral. Dong quai is an excellent herb for female hormonal fluctuations. Energy healing work during the Full Moon is very powerful. On the energetic level, it acts like a magnifying mirror. The strong lunar energy pulls everything out of hiding and reflects it back at us. This is often the time during an acute illness when people feel their worst. The Full Moon intensifies whatever else is going on. Often people aren't even aware that they're sick until the Full Moon hits. This is also an excellent time for psychological therapy. Emotions seem closer to the surface than usual and social inhibitions melt away. Agendas that have been simmering under the surface tend to come out under the light of the Full Moon. This is a time to strengthen relationships and reaffirm bonds. Never underestimate the healing power of simply holding someone's hand and listening. This is not the time for isolation or introspection . The Full Moon draws all of life toward it. Even the solid ground rises several inches when the Full Moon passes overhead! Full Moon Cleansing Ritual The monthly lunar cycle gives you many chances to do rituals to mark a personal turning point or let go. At the New Moon, you can go into the dark and be symbolically reborn. New Moon rituals help you summon your whole Self, and in that magic moment, commit to intentions. At the full Moon, the energy builds and builds....there's an explosive outgoing aspect to it. All of nature grows and is more vital at the full Moon. This surge allows you to take action on behalf of those new Moon intentions you set two week prior. A full Moon ritual might involve taking one solid step, with a symbolic action. And it can be a powerful time to release, cast out, unburden yourself, purge, etc. You celebrate your emergence by stepping out of an old skin, identity, behavior, attitude, relationship. The ritual helps you by marking this inner transformation in a formal way. A full Moon ritual might involve purification by one of the elements. Most often, it's fire, and done by casting something you don't want into the flames. One idea: 1) Write what you're releasing down on a stick. 2) resolve to let go as you throw it into the fire. 3) Throw the stick into the fire. This can be done as a group, with everyone sitting 'round the fire...or in your own private ceremony. Each person can seal their action of letting go by speaking it aloud, if there's trust in the circle. Water can be used to cleanse in rituals. Part of the full Moon ceremony fill a bowl with water and some rose petals. write down what you want to draw into your lives on a piece of paper. After you read them aloud, put your hands in the bowl to signify the cleansing of the old, and to open to the new. If you live near a beach, go down to the beach and write in the sand, all that you release, watch as the water goddess, washes away all that you release.

Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: parchment dragons or doves blood ink brown candle springling herbs or spell powder Procedure: Fireproof vessel (cauldron) On the Full Moon, gather your ingredients and depending on your needs will determine what herbs, and ink you will need. For example: if you have a house closing that is just not going through, use parchment for earthly matters,herbs may by powdered bayleaf or earth spell powder, and ink, doves blood. Carve into your candle three symbols for the moon, light candle. Write in "blood Ink" on parchment your name and date of birth along with any other appropriate symbols. Sprinkle a SMALL amount of herbs or spell powder on your parchment. Focus on seeing your need fulfilled.

Secret parchment, ancient fires, Bring me to my hearts desires. Let the wheels in motion roll, All I seek will now unfold. Let candle burn down, or snuff if leaving. **NOTE** In cases where I cannot stay to watch a candle completely burn down, I make sure it is put in a container that will protect the surroundings if candles begins to melt down to fast, tall glass vases are great for leaving a candle unattended. Done During the Full Moon Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 1 cauldron water silver coin Procedure: Fill your cauldron half full of water and drop a silver coin into it. Position the cauldron so that the light from the moon shines into the water. Gently sweep your hands just above the surface, symbolically gathering the Moon's silver. Say 3 times: Lovely Lady of the Moon, bring to me your wealth right soon. Fill my hands with silver and gold. All you give, my purse can hold. When finished, pour the water upon the Earth. Release Ritual Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: Floating candles 1 large bowl water matches 1 pen Procedure: Create sacred space with candles, sage smudging, and setting up altars with powerful totems. For some rituals, I'll use an owl's wing that a friend gave me, to represent wisdom. If possible, stand or sit under the Moon. Allow yourself to feel a direct relationship to it, as a mover of the living waters of the Earth and within our own bodies. Do a grounding exercise, to bring you out of the chatter of small talk and into ritual space. Feel the earth under your feet and shake out the tension in the body. Place the large water-filled bowl in front of you, or in the middle of your gathering on a table. Write what your releasing on the floating candle. It's not important that it shows up, just that the intention is there. As you place the candle into the bowl, declare what you're releasing. Light the candle. Allow yourself to feel the transfer of what you're releasing to the candle. As a group focus on letting go into the water, holding hands if that feels right. Celebrate this release by sharing a feast under the full moon! Allow the candle to keep burning in the bowl as a symbol of the letting go process. The flame is a purifier, and symbolizes the sparks of inspiration as well. If you blow out your floating candle, and your bowl is in your home, relighting it will remind you of your commitment. Place inspiring pictures and totems around it that remind you of who you're becoming. Above all, give yourself kudos for honoring your own growth. Full Moon Communication Spell Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 1 pale blue or yellow candle Procedure: The December Full Moon is in Gemini, which rules communication. Use this time to examine how you communicate with others. What about your communication style would you like to change? Burn a pale blue or yellow candle. Write down everything you know about your communication style. Use the energy of the candle to visualize how you would change the way you relate to others. Work consciously on this for one week. Eventually, you will communicate more effectively, and people will respond to you more favorably.

Love Boon You Will Need: 1 journal 1 green candle 3 drops of rose oil 1 green stone. This spell taps into the fertile power of the moon, ruled by the beautiful Greek Goddess Selene. She influences the reproductive energies of plants, animals and people. Procedure: Begin by writing on a blank page of your journal what you want to focus the energy of this full moon love spell. It could be anything from a new love relationship to strengthening your love with your beloved. Be clear as to your desires, and make sure your spell is truly for the greater good–everyone’s greater good, not just your own. Dress the candle with the three drops of rose oil. As you rub the oil over the surface of the candle, focus your mind on your desire. Wipe the oil from your hands, and place the candle in a candleholder. Light the candle, and imagine the candlelight fueling your magickal pattern. Imagine the magickal fire energizing every aspect of your being and then direct it toward your specific love desire. Say 3 times: I am the light that shine bright Within this magickal moonlight night. Put the green stone on an altar tile or plate on your altar. Then carefully pick up the candle and hold it over the stone. Angle the candle so that three drops of wax spill onto the stone. Say: Maid, Crone, and Mother Your light shines like no other On this bright night of the full moon Please grant me this true love boon. {State what you desire.} So be it! Blessed be! Allow the candle to burn safely down, and set the stone in the windowsill to absorb the energy of the full moon. Afterward put the stone one your altar for twenty-eight nights (a moon cycle) to draw the love you desire into your life. Luck and Joy Spell Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 2 candles 1 white one for you and 1 blue one for friends and family Procedure: As the full moon is rising, light the candles. Say: I light these candles for luck for me, and for my friends and family, So they will burn by day and night, and bring us joy by their bright light. Allow the candles burn until they are done. If something happens and you must put them out, pinch each flame out. Say: Little flame wait for me I'll be back and bright you'll be. Don't blow them out it will stop the spell. Be sure to relight the candles later when you can allow them to burn completely down. Full Moon Ritual Timing: Full Moon After erecting circle at esbat but before cookies and wine, kneel with hands held high. Say: When the moon rides high as she crosses the sky and the stars on her gown trail behind then we wiccan below are all aglow just to see her so brightly enshrined. On the night of the moon as I sing to the tune of the Lady who watches above I raise high my song as she glides by so strong and I bask in the light of her light. Rhythmic Chant Timing: Full Moon Purpose: Worship Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna (Repeat as often as wanted) Say: Lovely Lady, you have been known by so many people. Aphrodite, Territory, Diana, Ea, Freyja, Gana Isis and so many more have been your names. It is with these names do I adore and worship you with your Lord by your side, do I give you due honor and invite you to join me on this, your special night. Sit and meditate. Say: Descend my Lady; descend I pray thee and speak with me, your child. Meditate; if you do not feel the spirit, do the following. Say: I am she who watches over thee. Mother of you all. Know that I rejoice that you do not forget me. To pay homage at the full of the moon is meet and right and brings joy unto yourself, even as it does me. Know that, with my good Lord, I weave the skein of life for everyone. I am at the beginning of life and at its end: The Maiden, The Mother, The Crone. Where ever you may be, if you seek me know that I am always here for I abide deep within you. Look, then, within yourself if you would seek me. I am Life and I am Love. Find me and rejoice, for love is my music and laughter is my song. Be true to me and I will ever be true to you. Love is the law and love is the bond. So Mote it Be! Full Moon Scrying Ritual The upcoming summer months are the perfect time for Full Moon Scrying and I'd like to pass on an old, time honored scrying ritual originally written by D.J. Conway that I have used many times during the long summer nights: Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 1 bright, shiny silver coin 1 small, black cauldron or scrying bowl filled with water Procedure: Perform this ritual outside where the rays of the Moon can fall directly onto the water in the cauldron. If you cannot go outside, stay in a darkened room near a window that the Moon shines through. Place the coin in the water and take the cauldron in both hands. Gaze up at the Moon. Say: Lovely Lady of the night, Mysteries old and futures bright, Give me a glimpse of that to be And as I will so mote it be. Look down at the coin shimmering in the cauldrons water. With your eyes half closed, adjust your vision as if you were looking into and through the coin. Don't try to analuze anything you might see or that might come into your mind. Just accept it. Some people, rathar than seeing actual pictures within the cauldron, will have mental impressions, feelings or pictures. When you have finished, bow to the Moon and say thank you. Pour the water out on the ground. 9 Pennies Full Moon Spell Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 9 pennies Procedure: Take 9 pennies outside during the full Moon and let her light shine upon you. Open your arms as if to embrace the Moon and make your request. Say: You have said that when you're round prayers are answered, chains unbound.

Place the chalice of water in front of you. Say: The element of water, your natural companion My dreams and my life combine as one too. Globe Full Moon Spell Here are a few tips on how to make the best of this exciting and powerful time for magick. It is often reserved for major rituals and also for group work seeing as the Moon has a very binding energy at this special time. However, not everyone is in a position to work with others and you should not feel precluded from the fun if this is the case for you! I have included a basic spell to help you harness the Moon’s power to help you fulfill a wish. There are a few ingredients needed with this spell but you can be flexible. I find that anything white or silver works best. You will also need to check the weather in order for this spell to work as you will need a clear night with plenty of moonlight so in theory, this being summer, it is a good time of year for this to work - theory! You Will Need: 1 globe to represent the Moon; or crystal ball or a crystal tumblestone. mineral water 1 bowl 1 cauldron or chalice big enough to hold the globe or crystal Fill this with the mineral water. Take the globe or stone in the palm of your hand. Say: I seek to hold the power of the Moon in my hand And draw its energy to me. Place the globe or stone in the water. Say: I see you within the water, both in representation and in reflection I ask that you share your benevolent power with me tonight And grant my wish. Take a moment to see the Moon’s reflection. Say: With the gift of your power granted and placed within the water I accept and thank you for the honor of your visit tonight. Now sprinkle the Moon water around you while visualizing your wish: Say: I am surrounded and blessed by your gift to me And ask that my wish is fulfilled. Now speak your wish out loud and once again. Thank the Moon for sharing such a precious gift with you. Full Moon Spell Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 1 small globe of crystal or clear glass. The first time you starts this spell and every time you wish to use it for a new special purpose, you have to clear and consecrate the globe of crystal/glass by holding it up to the light of the Full Moon, so that the lunar image is caught therein. Monthly: After this has been performed, the globe may be used as a charm to procure the secret wish of the owner. On the night of each New Moon, hold the sphere in the left palm, by candlelight, gaze upon it. Say: Crescent be full and crystal fill Thus my eye and thus my will Fiat Voluntus Abdita! Fiat Voluntus Abdita!! Fiat Voluntus Abdita!!! The globe should then be kept in a small bag of leather inscribed with figures of the Moon's phases, and worn about the neck during those days and nights between the crescent and the full. While it is not being worn, the globe should be wrapped in a black cloth and hidden away. Of the Herbs and Plants of Full Moon Rituals ~ by Scott Cunningham Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 1 altar all nocturnal white or five petaled flowers such as the white rose, night blooming jasmine, carnation, gardenia, cereus, lily, iris or Camphor Procedure: Place upon the altar all nocturnal, white or five petaled flowers such as the white rose, night blooming jasmine, carnation, gardenia, cereus, lily, iris. All pleasingly scented flowers which shall call forth the Goddess. Camphor is also symbolic. Of Offerings To the Goddess: All watery and earthy flowers and seeds such as camellia, lily, water lily, willow stalks; those flowers used in Full Moon rituals; white or purple blooms such as hyacinth, magnolia, heather and lilac; sweet scented herbs and flowers; those dedicated to Venus or to the Moon; rue, vervain and olive; or others which seem suitable. Of Offerings To the God: All fiery and airy herbs and flowers such as basil, chrysanthemum, snapdragon, clover, lavender, pin; strongly scented clean or citrusy herbs and flowers; those ruled by Mars or the Sun; yellow or red blooms such as sunflower, pine cones, seeds, cacti, thistles and stinging herbs; orange, heliotrope, cedar, juniper and so on. On every Full Moon, rituals such as the one described above take place on hilltops, beaches, in open fields and in ordinary houses. Writers, teachers, nurses, computer programmers, artists,lawyers, poets, plumbers, and auto mechanics - women and men from many backgrounds come together to celebrate the mysteries of the Triple Goddess of the Dance of Life. The religion they practice is called Witchcraft. Tarot Ritual for a Full Moon This is a rite that can be performed by one person or by several people who are used to working closely together and who are comfortable working with each other. The set up is simple and there isn't any need for fancy clothes or for an altar that has more than a few simple items that most of us have around. Timing: Full Moon Suggested items for the Altar... 1 small table with a white or silver cloth to cover it. 3 candles, one white, one black, and one blue for healing. 1 incense holder with rose or sage incense on it. 1 small mirror to catch the reflection of the Full Moon. 1 deck of Tarot Cards, for reading in the circle 1 small vase with one flower in it to represent the Mother. Procedure: When the moon is at its fullest gather those who would like to work together and set comfortably at the altar table with your hands lightly touching. Take a few deep breaths and clear your thoughts. Let the Mother be welcomed into the circle by each person who is attending. State what work that needs to be done and ask for the members in the circle to address themselves to things that need to be done this night. Pull three cards for each person at the table and have the person to their right read these cards for this person. In this manner you will receive readings that are very fresh and that have a lot of truth for them. When the time is right and all the work has been done close the circle and end the nights work. Share a glass of wine and some cakes to honor the Lord and the Lady of the Circle. Keep the night's work fresh in your mind by keeping a working record each time and that way you can go back to it to keep track of the work you have done and when. Each rite usually has a theme to the general work and this changes as needed. Be flexible and let yourself enjoy the experience. Leave room for spontaneity invite someone to work with you and share what things you do. Plan a quiet time to share coffee and cake or anything you might like, in order to allow a flow of conversation about the work that has been done. Find out how each person felt during the work and if they might like to change something the next time. If you are working with a structured group that allows a change in the person who is crafting the main power for the ceremony, try taking turns for each person to lead. It is a learning experience believe me. Seeds Of Opportunity Spell What do you want to achieve before the next Full Moon? Whether it?s a new job, new career, or a quick stash of cash, this spell will lead you to your goals. Start by listing the short- term goals that will lead to your long-term aims. Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 1 terracotta pot soil 1 gold or green candle specific goals Procedure: Once you have your goals listed, place a terracotta pot, filled with soil, on your working space. Light a gold or a green candle that has been placed in the soil. Allowing a separate line for each, write out your specific goals. Then state these words. Say: As the earth nourishes the seeds of spring, so will these seeds be nourished. Each time you fulfill a goal, cut off that line, bury the paper in the soil, and repeat the above words. Relight your candle during the Full Moon in celebration of meeting your goal. Simple Full Moon Ritual Timing: Full Moon You Will Need: 1 broom Procedure: As you sweep your home chant the following, ending with visualizing sweeping the negativity out the front door and off the porch (or stoop) and taking a few moments to visualize your home filling with the bright light and blessings of the full Moon. Say: With this Broom, I sweep tonight Cast out Darkness, raise the Light All within, blessings surround Healing, love, and joy abound A sacred home, this shall be, As my will, so mote it be. Goddess Aspect Mother Timing: Full Moon or New Moon You Will Need: 1 altar 1 rose or stick of incense 1 red votive candle 1 cup of water 1 bowl of salt or living plant 1 unlighted candle Associated Goddesses- Danu, Cerridwen, Gaia, Aphrodite, and Isis. Magickal Attributes- FRUITION Manifesting goals, Nurturing, Passion, Healing, Strength, Power. Workings on this day are for- Protection, Divination, "Extra Power", Job hunting, healing serious conditions. Also love, knowledge, legal undertakings, money and dreams, artistic endeavors, beauty, health, and fitness, change and decisions, children, competition, dreams, families, health and healing, knowledge, legal undertakings, love and romance, money, motivation, psychism, self-improvement. This rite may be used for either New or Full Moon. The difference is in your meditation and mental attitude in preparation. Remember that the New Moon is a time of outward work and thought, building to the peak which is the Full Moon. Procedure: At the Full Moon, you should be preparing to lessen the outward flow of energy, bit by bit, until the period before New Moon, during which you are passive, building a pool of energy within you, in preparation for the New Moon. The altar should be placed in the center of the ritual area. On it should be placed a rose or stick of incense on the eastern side, a red votive candle to the South; a cup of water on the West, and a bowl of salt or living plant on the North. Around your ritual area, you should place an unlighted candle at the cardinal point of each direction. To begin your rite, enter your darkened temple, carrying one burning candle, white or lavender, with you. Place it on the center of your altar, sit, and meditate on the meaning of the rite. When you feel the time is right, stand, and go to the eastern point, carrying with you, the burning taper. Light the votive at the eastern point and go to the southern, picturing, as you do, an arc of pure strong light curving from one candle to the next. Continue to the West, and then to the North, lighting the candles as you go, and then walk to your eastern candle again, having formed a circle of protective light surrounding the area in which you worship. Return to the center of the circle, replace the candle on the altar. Say: My Lady of the Moon, who is called Diana, Artemis, Levanah, Isis and by any other names, I come to you to bring you my love and my devotion. May you grant me the joy of your presence." Mentally divide the room into four quadrants by visualizing a line of silvery moonlight from the southeast to the northwest, and from the northeast to the southwest. Go the East, taking with you the rose or incense. Say: Sweet Goddess, the gentle breeze is the touch of your loving hand, the wind of storm a reminder of your strength. The sound of the trees in the wind is your voice, and the fragrance of flowers borne on the wind is your gift of beauty. Place the rose next to the votive candle, then stand there as you picture the quadrant filling with moonlight. See the moonlight streaming quietly and gently into the room, filling the quadrant from center point to the edge of your circle. When this is complete, take the red candle to the South. Place the gift and see the quadrant fill with moonlight. Say: Most loved Lady, the light of the candle is a guide along our path leading to you; its warmth the reassurance of your presence and your love. The light of the Sun is the knowledge you impart to us, driving out ignorance and those things which can survive only in darkness. At the West: Say: Lovely One, the quiet pool is the serenity of your being. The vast sea where life began on this planet is the vast sea of your being whence all life came; its waves are the ebb and flow of the universe you rule. At the North: Say: Goddess of all, the fertility of the earth is a sign of your fertility, whence all life rose. The solidity and permanence are still of it are still less than yours. The Earth's fertility feeds our bodies, and your fertility feeds our souls. Go to the center of your temple, which is now filled with moonlight. Everything in the circle is touched by it, blessed by it, including you. Sit down and feel this moonlight around you. Know that it is the Goddess. Realize that you are in the center of a sphere of light that is half above and half above and half below where you sit. Begin to breathe slowly and evenly, deep breaths that penetrate your whole body. When this rhythmic breathing becomes natural, imagine that the moonlight by which you are surrounded enters you, fills you entirely. With each exhalation of your breath, some of the essence of yourself leaves your body, and with each inhalation, the light enters you. You are being filled ever so gently with this beautiful light. This light, which is the presence, the being of the Goddess, is within you as well as without. With each breath, you are less yourself and more the Goddess. When you are filled with light, filled with the Goddess, the shell of your body fades away. You have no body; there is nothing to separate you from the entire being of the Goddess. Nothing exists but the being of which you are apart. You have ceased to be a separate entity. You are nothing and everything. All that was, that is, and all that will be, you are. Enjoy this feeling as long as you like. When you feel it is time, picture the outer shell of your physical body reforming, becoming solid again. It is being built out of the Universe of which you are a part. Now, as you continue your slow deep breathing, see the moonlight flowing out of your body, as gently and slowly as it entered. As it flows out, realize there is a difference. Because you have become one with the Goddess, with the Universe, your being has changed. As the moonlight flows out of your body, it takes with it a part of that which was yourself, now part of the Goddess, and leaves behind a part of the Goddess, forever now part of you. You become yourself again, solid as you were, but changed. You are surrounded by the presence of the Goddess, which now contains a part of yourself . Move again to the East. As you speak, and after, picture the moon- light in that quadrant flowing back to its source, leaving that quadrant as it was. Do this at each quadrant, until all the moonlight has returned to the Moon. At the East: Say: My Lady, guide my thoughts. Let them lead always closer to you. At the South: Say: Gracious Goddess, guide my actions. Let them always help and never harm others or myself. At the West: Say: Lovely One, guide my emotions, Let them be healing and touched always by you. At the North: Say: Sweet Goddess, let my mind always be fertile and strong, that I may grow always toward you. Return to the East to complete the circle. Say: Queen of Heaven, I thank you for your presence, both now and always. My love and devotion are yours. Blessed be! All spirits who have joined me tonight may depart, with my love. Return to your proper places. Walk again around your circle, but this time counterclockwise, extinguishing the quadrant guards as you go, and at the same time, mentally erasing the white line which surrounded your circle. When the candles are out and the circle gone, rap on your altar. Say: So mote it be! Remember to harm none!!!! Remember to harm none!!!! Katydid's Site Index
