Eclipse/New Moon Ritual 🌙
A ritual to gather power and renew oneself through the power of an eclipse or new moon.
🌙 gather: full moon water, amethyst, white and black candles, ribbon, bay leaf, and any other prefered crystals/artifacts of power, and a wand/athame.
🌙 perform ritual when the moon is present. Note: if during an eclipse, take appropriate eye-protection precautions (nasa-approved solar glasses, not regular sun glasses)
🌙 arrange the crystals/artifacts as points of a pentagram, or prefered/appropriate geometric shape.
🌙 place candles in the center, tied together with the ribbon.
🌙 light the white candle, use the bay leaf to transfer the light to the black candle.
🌙 let the bay leaf burn to ash on a fire safe plate.
🌙 ground with the moon:
the shadow cast over you allows you make you one with the dark, your own heavenly body afloat in the universe. You blend into the darkness, you are only your eyes. When you close them you become nothing. Between your stomach and your heart, you summon a spark, that grows inside you. It burns away the emptiness and fills you to the brim, until you are whole again.
🌙ground until the ashes are cooled, then crumble the leaf between fingers and rub ash into hands.
🌙 reach for the moon. Feel its power spreading into you. (This is the time for eye protection, if youre going to be looming at the moon)
🌙 extinguish the candles and wash hands in the full moon water. It does not charge you, because you are already brim-full.
