A ritual to do during a full moon to ask for the moon’s protection and blessing. It works for me but I can not promise it’ll work for you. If it doesn’t it may be because you aren’t concentrating hard enough or you just can’t. Sometimes it simply functions as way of meditation.
Casting Directions for ‘Full Moon Ritual’
Place the candles in a pentagram shape and connect them together with the lavender to make a star,then use some lavender to ring the star still connecting the candles to make a pentagram(should be large enough to set the goblet and athame from the centre without touching the sides).
Bottom left to tip
Tip to bottom right
Bottom right left
Top left to top right
Right to bottom left
Light the candles in correspondence with the five elements
Right = Air
Bottom right = Water
Left = Earth
Best left = Fire
Tip = Spirit
As you light the candles state:
Air: God of Air I call upon you to bless this pentagram with your untold power.
Water: Goddess of Water I call upon you to bless this pentagram together with your newfound power.
Earth:Goddess of Earth I call upon you to bless this pentagram together with your newfound power.
Fire:God of Fire I call upon you to bless this pentagram with your untold power.
Spirit:Spirit of the Universe I call upon you to bless this pentagram together with your newfound power.
Once all the candles are lit fill the goblet halfway with wine and place it in the center of the pentagram and put the athame in the center of the pentagram together with the goblet.
Look up at the moon and say: Mother Moon I seem to you this night to ask for your blessing and protection during your next phase of attractiveness.
Take the athame in your hands and raise it to the moon,extend your other hand in front of you over the goblet,and appearing into the moon state: Mother Moon I forfeit eight drops of blood to represent the eight phases of your beauty.
Together with the athame slice across your hand and let just eight drops of your blood fall into the goblet.
Take the moonstone or crystal to the hand which you simply cut and that hand in you flip side,squeeze the moonstone or crystal in your hands close to your chest as hard as you can without dripping blood all over yourself.
Place the blood-covered jewel in the goblet of wine and say: As I request for you blessing I offer you this sacrifice as cost for my requests.
Take the goblet in both hands,hold it up to the moon,bring it back to you,and have a drink. (It may not taste very good,sorry)
Put the goblet down in the pentagram again,dip your fingers in the liquid,and trace a star on either your chest or forehead,then touch your fingers to your lips. Clean and bandage your hands,we wouldnt want it to get infected now would we.
Meditate until either the tealights burn or the wine dries. The longer you meditate the more relaxed you will become.
Take the jewel in the goblet and place it under your pillow and keep it there till the sun rises then was it and keep it somewhere safe until the next time you want it.
