Moon Protection for Amulets, Talismans or Any Personal Items

Moon Protection for Amulets, Talismans or Any Personal Items

Place a jewel, that you regularly carry on you, in a cup of spring water a day before the full moon. The following day, on the evening of full moon, stir the water three times with your finger in a clockwise motion. Take the cup in your hands and in a clockwise, stirring motion, move the cup in a clockwise, circular, stirring motion three times. Then, repeat these words aloud:

Oh Light of the Moon,
Wrap me
Protect Me
Keep me from harm.

Raise the cup towards the sky and drink the water. Remove the jewel from the cup. You must carry it on your person to the next full moon in order to ensure your protection. Repeat this ritual every month to benefit from its influence

Making Moon Water

Making Moon Water

 

Moon water is at its most potent when made on the night of the full moon or during a partial or total lunar eclipse. You can also make it in the two or three days before the full moon if the skies are clear and the moon is shining brightly.

1.   On the night of the full moon (it rises around sunset) set a silver colored or clear crystal bowl outdoors where the moonlight can shine on it.

2.   Half-fill it with still mineral water, if possible from a sacred source, and, if you have any add a few drops of water from a holy well. You can substitute bubbling tap water.

3.   Surround the bowl with pure white flowers or blossoms or small moonstones.

4.   If you have a small silver bell, ring it three times, saying for each ring:

“First the Maiden, now the Mother, then the Wise Grandmother.”

5.  Raise your arms on either side of your head, your hands facing upwards flat with pal uppermost and repeat the same words three times.

6.   Stir the water nine times moonwise (anticlockwise) with a silver colored paper knife (silver being the color and metal of the moon) or an amethyst crystal point. Ask the moon mother to bless the water and those who use it.

7.    If you are not carrying out a moon ceremony, leave the bowl in position, covered with fine mesh, overnight.

8.  Ring the bell three times more before leaving and say:

“Blessings Be.”

9.   If you don’t have a bell, kneel and put your hand round the bowl, saying:

“Blessings Be.”

10.  Using a glass jug and filter, pour the water if possible into small blue, silver or frosted glass bottles that you can seal and keep in your fridge or a cool place until the next full moon night. If you use a plain bottle label it so you don’t mistake it for another magickal water.

11.  Any water left at the end of the moon period should be poured into the ground before moonrise on the next full moon night.

Moon Spell

Moon Spell

 

Materials:

  • A small globe of crystal or clear glass.

 

Initial Preparation:

The first time you starts this spell and every time you wish to use it for a new special purpose, you have to clear and consecrate the globe of crystal/glass by holding it up to the light of the Full Moon, so that the lunar image is caught therein.

Monthly:

After this has been performed, the globe may be used as a charm to procure the secret wish of the owner.  On the night of each New Moon, hold the sphere in the left palm, by candlelight, gaze upon it, and chant:

Crescent be full and crystal fill: Thus my eye and thus my will: Fiat Voluntus Abdita! Fiat Voluntus Abdita!! Fiat Voluntus Abdita!!!

The globe should then be kept in a small bag of leather incribed with figures of the Moon’s phases, and worn about the neck during those days and nights between the crescent and the full.  While it is not being worn, the globe should be wrapped in a black cloth and hidden away.

Eclipsed Moon Over Wyoming  

Credit & Copyright: Mack H. Frost 

Explanation: A setting full moon rarely looks like this. Monday morning just before a fully lit  Strawberry Moon dropped behind the  Absaroka Mountain Range near  Cody,  Wyoming,  USA, the  shadow of the Earth got in the way. A similarly setting  partial lunar eclipse was visible throughout most of North and South America, while simultaneously the same  partially darkened moon was visible throughout eastern Asia. Pictured in the foreground is a snowbank formation known as the  Horse’s Head off a tributary of the  Shoshone River. Lunar eclipses occur about twice a year, and the  next one —  a penumbral eclipse —  will occur in late November.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for June 4th

Stop, look and listen! Silence is golden in the early hours as the Partial Lunar Eclipse strikes first at 4:04AM PDT followed 9 minutes later by the Full Moon at 4:13AM PDT (activating 15 degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius). Individual and group meditations are encouraged during what some esoteric groups call the Festival of Humanity. Send out your inspiring thoughts and prayers to friends, colleagues, relatives and the kingdoms of nature. Worrying about your own personal needs is a no-no. Think more about your higher destiny in this lifetime and how you can be of greater service to the invisible host of teachers, angels and spirits that orchestrate the universe from their elevated perspectives. Giving your religious beliefs and philosophy of life extra support is Neptune becoming motionless at 4 degrees of Pisces (2:05PM PDT) as it gradually shifts into retrograde motion – a reversal direction that lasts until November 10. All Neptune themes – dreams and visions, psychic sensitivity, the creative imagination, spiritual longings, ideals, artistic genius, universal love-wisdom, fishing and sailing, water sports, illusions, fantasies, confusion and chaos, addictive behavior and being hooked on anyone and anything – are intensified. Adding to today’s carnival-like atmosphere is a Venus-Mars square from Gemini to Virgo (5:29PM PDT). Strive for serenity in affairs of the heart. Fortunately, Venus will also make an inspirational, 72-degree contact with Pallas (6:34PM PDT) – offering encouragement regarding problem-solving and strategy sessions. The Moon, still transiting, adventurous and playful Sagittarius goes retrograde during a Moon-Mercury opposition (10:09PM PDT). Complete odd jobs and old projects on a high note during the next 7-hour uncertainty zone until the Moon enters industrious, earthy Capricorn at 5:32AM PDT on Tuesday.

Your Magickal Spell for Monday, June 4 – A Full Moon Wish

A Full Moon Wish

Go outside during a full moon, hold a glass of water up to the moon, so the moon reflects on the water. Close your eyes, make your wish, then drink all the water while wishing all the negative things in your relationship dispersing with the flow of the moon. The waning moon will carry away all the negative emotions.

 

Lunar Lore

Lunar Lore
The moon had climbed the highest hill
Which rises o’er the source of Dee,
And from the eastern summit shed
Her silver light on tower and tree.
– John Lowe, “Mary’s Dream.”
The Egyptians worshipped the cat as a symbol of the moon,
not only because it is more active after sunset,
but from the dilation and contraction of its pupil,
symbolical of the waxing and waning of the night-goddess.
– Brewer, “Dictionary of Phrase & Fable”

Daily Horoscopes for June 15th

A Full Moon Eclipse at 4:13 pm EDT in open-minded Sagittarius could encourage dialogue between individuals with different philosophical, political and religious points of view. Its opposition to clever Mercury in adaptable Gemini may even enable us to see how multiple perspectives can coexist without the need to force resolution. Meanwhile, Mercury’s fateful septile to stodgy Saturn indicates that suppression may still be lurking in the shadows.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You believe that you can justify almost anything you want to do today; however, your logic might not seem all that rational to someone else. Even if your motives are admirable, your impulsive behavior may not go over well with others. Be careful of your overconfidence leading you to do something you will later regret. Keep in mind that it’s wiser to heed the cautionary advice that you’re given now, even if it temporarily puts a crimp in your style.

 

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You might have wonderful ideas today, but could lack a clear plan that helps you reach your goals. Although your footing can be shaky now, your sense of urgency motivates you to reach for the stars anyway. Unfortunately, this may not be the best time to start a project, yet you can’t wait for some magical moment to arrive when everything is perfect. If you encounter delays along the way, remember that they are not valid reasons to give up hope and walk away.

 

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your quick wit often helps you smooth over sketchy situations, but you may not be satisfied with this evasive strategy now. You’re not interested in hiding your feelings any longer, but facing serious underlying issues isn’t as much fun as delivering the next clever comeback. Don’t worry about stepping into unfamiliar territory; your friends and family will jump in to help when they realize that you are attempting to keep it real.

 

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Today’s inspirational Full Moon Eclipse rattles your 6th House of Details, turning your attention to all the loose ends that are still left untied. But being aware of what you need to do is not the same thing as doing it. Don’t try to complete everything now; there is no need to apologize for what remains temporarily unfinished. Handling your chores one at a time will help you to concentrate your efforts and accomplish as much as possible.

 

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although you may not want to admit it, your thoughts are a bit scattered today, challenging you to follow any one idea to its logical conclusion. Thankfully, the fiery Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse activates your 5th House of Self-Expression, helping to free you from your own self-limiting beliefs. Just don’t get so carried away with all of the amazing possibilities that you turn a practical plan into an unrealistic dream.

 

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could get caught up in a struggle to balance quantity with quality today as the Full Moon Eclipse in boundless Sagittarius whets your appetite for adventure. Unfortunately, your newfound desires might be at odds with your usual preference to narrow your field of perception so you can focus your energy and be more efficient. Consider this eclipse as an opportunity to practice your powers of discrimination. Wrapping up your work early allows you to do something exciting later in the day.

 

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

This is an information-rich day with the Lunar Eclipse shaking up your 3rd House of Communication. You could even become caught up in a debate without knowing which side is right. Unfortunately, you may have a strong opinion that isn’t well thought out. Ironically, withdrawing from the discussion and seeking a quiet place may be your smartest strategy now. Contemplating your own thoughts is healthier than impulsively reacting to someone else’s ideas.

 

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s easy to overestimate your cash flow with the optimistic Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse illuminating your 2nd House of Money today. On the other hand, you might be fully aware of your financial situation, yet still decide to take a dream vacation anyway. Either way, you could end up discouraged if your fiscal reality doesn’t measure up to your wishes. Nevertheless, fretting is a waste of time and energy; save your nickels and dimes, instead.

 

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It’s not easy to contain your dreams as today’s Full Moon Eclipse occurs in your exuberant sign. But rather than going off on your own, you’re likely to tag along with a friend or partner when the Moon opposes chatty Mercury in your 7th House of Companions. Unfortunately, you can’t rely on others for advice now because they will probably encourage your scheme, even if it’s not very practical. Wait until the Moon enters realistic Capricorn tomorrow before embarking on your next big adventure.

 

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You typically handle your responsibilities early in the day so you can relax later on. But you might feel so overwhelmed by the sheer number of items on your agenda now that you don’t know where to begin. Don’t despair; instead of starting on your list right away, take time to review your priorities. Once you decide what you’re going to do first, break down the job into manageable tasks. Successful small steps assure the steadiest progress.

 

 

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The extravagant Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse in your social 11th house tempts you to say yes to every invitation you receive today. Although interacting with others sounds like fun, you may already be overcommitted. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to enjoy yourself if you’re supposed to be somewhere else. Don’t wait until your schedule is out of control; eliminate some of the extraneous activities before you’re in over your head. Ironically, you will have more fun if you have less to do.

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Today’s indulgent Sagittarius Full Moon activates your 10th House of Career, tempting you to set unrealistic professional goals. But it quickly becomes obvious that you cannot live up to your own exaggerated expectations. Ultimately, this Lunar Eclipse can reveal your excesses and require you to restrain your enthusiasm. Gradually apply the brakes to maintain control of your energy before things go awry.

New Moon Report for June 15th – Full Moon in Sagittarius

Full Moon in Sagittarius

Wednesday, June 15, 1:14 pm PDT, 4:14 pm EDT

This lunation occurs in optimist but judgmental Sagittarius where the need for absolute answers can lead to philosophical fundamentalism. It is a Total Eclipse of the Moon, signaling the need to let go of past beliefs and prejudices. Emptying ourselves of old truths can feel like stepping into the void of ignorance, but what we gain by opening our minds to let outmoded concepts fall away invites in a greater range of awareness. Being wrong might feel embarrassing yet is often the first step to acquiring more knowledge.
