Hello my lovely readers!
I wrote a guest post for Lori-Lyn Hurley’s amazing site DreamLifeWellness.com. The post is titled “Full Moon Esbat Ritual” and it’s an installment of her Essential Spiritual Practice series. You will learn about tuning into the moon’s energy and using it to your advantage.
Go, read, comment and give me loooove!
The timing is perfect because tonight’s the new moon.
Esbats or “celebrations” can be done at new, full, dark or quarter moons. Every phase of the moon has a particular energy that can be tuned into for a particular purpose:
New Moon – beginnings, adding new thing to your life, drawing things toward you
First Quarter – similar to new moon, a great time to start 7-day candle spells for gaining something (as in employment, confidence, health, etc) that will conclude on the full moon when its energy is strongest
Full – the most magical time in the moon cycle, great for magic of all kinds, an appropriate time to begin banishing magic to get rid of feelings/people/circumstances in your life
Last Quarter – a great time to start a 7-day spell for banishing something and concluding when the moon is dark
Dark – a great time to connect with ancestors or the dead, practice scrying or divination, discover the esoteric or unknown, communicate with dark goddesses (Hecate, Lilith, Kali. etc.)
