New Moon Magick
By Brigid Bishop
The New Moon is upon us, it occurs on March 7 at 12:14 p.m. EST.
When the Moon is New it is best to work on ridding ourselves of all of those negative things we want to let go of.
During the Waning Moon Phase leading up to this New Moon you may have been working on rituals or spells to rid yourself of something and the spell will culminate on this night.
I love the night of the New Moon. I find the natural darkness peaceful and cleansing. I usually go out in my backyard on the night of the New Moon and try to purge myself of all of the psychic sludge that accumulated for me doing readings during the preceding month.
I change out and cleanse all of my tarot decks, cleanse my runes and crystals, and basically take a metaphysical bath!
If there were any rituals I worked on during the Waning Moon I complete them on this night, sometimes having to go for rides away from my home to bury the remnants of spells I did for banishing or protection. It’s a spiritual (and busy) night for me.
The New Moon is the completion of a cycle, so I say good-bye to any of the negativity I may have been exposed to over the past month, and say hello to a new cycle of growth that begins immediately afterword!
Any harsh words I may have spoken to a loved one have been written down on parchment and they are ceremoniously burned to release any pain I may have caused my dear hearts. I try to symbolically release them from any pain I may have caused them, it’s a feeling like one gets after having received absolution and done their penance in the Catholic Faith.
Any wrongs I have committed in the past month are reviewed, learned from, and I begin the process of drawing healing and forgiveness during the Waxing Moon.
I begin preparations for any attraction spells and rituals I may be working on in the upcoming Waxing Moon and plant the seeds for my personal growth.
Mother Moon and Father Sky
Please don’t pass your daughter by.
Hear my words this dark, dark night,
And help me set my wrongs to right.
Take my words to Gods’ gracious ear
And help him keep my Angels near.
Forgive me, yet again my loves
As I call on all the powers above.
While below I live and learn
Once again the wheel turns.
Cleanse me of my deadly sins
Help me grow as this new month begins.
That’s my own little prayer/spell that I do on the New Moon and you are welcome to borrow it although everyone should write their own suited to their own needs.
So, look at this Friday as a New Beginning and bring the Magick of the Moon into your life with your own personal rituals!
