Every one starting the path to becoming a Witch must learn one key skill; the ability to keep track of the moon phases and work with them successfully. The new moon is the birthing cycle of the moon’s various phases. It is also a perfect time to attract your heartfelt desires by performing a moon ritual focused on manifestation.
While the cycle of the full moon is a suitable time for purging old ways, the new moon phase is an optimal time for planning and sowing your intentions.
The dark moon, with its mysterious unseen forces, offers a nurturing environment where our longings can establish roots. These miraculous manifestations begin to sprout and reach out to the stars as the moon continues its cycle.
MOON POWER INCANTATION
This ritual is purely an incantation to the Moon and is therefore very simple. It should be done during a Full Moon in an indoor or outdoor location. The aim is to bring the energy of the Moon within your grasp until the next Full Moon. The Moon is represented as a white swan and you can also use a paper moon or flower.
Water is sacred to the Moon and can be used as an offering to her.
- A bowl of water
- White paper moon or flower
Place the paper moon or flower in the bowl of water. Allow it to float then raise the bowl towards the Moon in the sky and say:
Hail to thee white swan on the river. Present life, tide turner,
Moving through the streams of life, all hail. Mother of old and new days,
To you, through you, this night we cling to your aura. Pure reflection, total in belief, touched by your presence, I am in your power and wisdom.
Praise your power, your peace, my power, my peace. I am strong. I praise. I bless.
When you are done, place the bowl on your altar.
Stand there for few minutes and appreciate the power of the Moon.
End the ritual and believe that you have been empowered with the power of the Moon.
This Full Moon ritual is something that you can prepare for throughout the month. You might begin by monitoring your moon phase calendar then note the upcoming Full moon. When the day comes, you can spend 20 to 30 minutes or more to do the ritual itself. Everyone will have a different approach to this Full moon ritual and it’s important that plan it to meet your needs.
