GOOD WITCH KEEPING SERIES

Merry Spring!

So, a new series came to mind while I started my Spring Cleaning. Every proper Witch always uses their magick while tending to their home. If you aren’t, then I highly recommend doing so. It is the perfect way of incorporating and practicing your craft every day. And who wouldn’t want their home sparkling with good vibes and surrounded in protection?

Therefore, I decided to list my own methods. Now, keep in mind, that every Witch has their own practices. This list is merely my own, and what has worked for my house. Either gather some ideas, or blend these practices with your own.

Now, the list is pretty explanatory. But I’ll go over them in detail if one wishes to understand how I came up with these.

New Moons are a time for starting a new cycle again. A complete cleanse from the previous energy, and to create a different sort of goals to take shape. A witch could see this as an opportune time to purify themselves, their ritual tools, altar, and homes. Hence, a good reason why I like to sweep and mop during this week of the New Moon. I love brewing together my own floorwashes and powders to use for this time. More on those recipes later.

Once the Moon begins to wax, energies are growing. Like a seed, goals begin as such. And by the time the Moon is within its first quarter, the energies are sparking. Therefore, this is a great time to burn any kind of drawing incense or simmering pots. In this case, drawing mixes that attracts fortune, luck, health, love, blessings, etc. Normally, I do these sort of drawing magicks for maintaining the positive flow in my home. To keep everyone healthy. Positive luck. Peace and creativity. Etc.

Now, it is no surprise when I write how any hearth/home magick can be done during the Full Moon. Because that is just so. The week leading up to the Full Moon is enhanced with energy. Any magick, whether it is fertility, protection, wealth, banishing, anything, is perfect for this time. So have at it!

Much like the New Moon, energies during the Last Quarter are low, but they are still humming. This is the time to put that power to rest and banish any unwanted energies that may have accumulated during the month. I like to vacuum and dust during this time. Dust bunnies and other nasty dirty particles are what is left of the old negative energies. They harbor and hold onto these remnants, so it’s important to be rid of these to prepare for the New Moon. Breaking Bad Habit spells are perfect during this chore.

I hope you enjoy the list. And keep on the look out, there will be more to the series on the way.

Another Moon Turn

Welcome and blessings!
Tonight makes the first quarter moon in Cancer. That means new spells to write!

Here are a three spells, each with their own magical purpose. 

                    Blessing Meditation 

Sit in a comfortable position in front of the altar, outdoors, or anywhere you feel safe and sacred. Meditate. Think about your blessings as you breathe steadily and deeply. Inhale, exhale, for about 20 minutes or so. Take your time. Your connecting with the energies around you, The spirits, and the Goddess. 
When ready, chant:
I am made of sacred Earth, purest Water, holy Fire, and wildest Wind.

Great Goddess, giver of all the fruits of this Earth. 

Of all bounty, beauty, and well-being. 

Bless all who give and receive these gifts. 

Blessings upon thee.

Blessings upon me. 

So mote it be.

                 Moon’s Desires Ritual 

Once the day begins to set, and the first quarter moon rises. Don a white shirt or dress. Bring a moonstone and take a walk outside. Gather wildflowers, dandelions, grasses, and sit somewhere where you can watch the moon rise. Weave a wreath crown as you absorb the coming of night. 

Once finished, burn frankincense, or nag chamba. Light 4 white candles and place the crown upon the head. 

Hold the moonstone in the left hand and begin to concentrate on a desired outcome. Whether that be for creative fulfillment, happiness, releasing anger, etc. 

Arms outstretched, eyes on the moon. Sing or chant when your power has build:
Luna, in your seventh heaven,

I invoke you now. 

Brighter than any star, you are. 

I will sing your magic song,

If you but shine my desire. 

I will walk your sacred path,

If you but make it so. 

Be here now!

Repeat as much as you feel is right. Then meditate awhile for any visions that may arise. Or use tarot cards to find the response to your desires.
