New Moon Spell

Original artwork by CearaFinn

Merry Meet :)) The New Moon is coming up shortly and it’s one of my absolute favorite nights as it is my belief that the magick we work on the night of the New Moon will set the pace for the entire Lunar Cycle. Today I am going to share with you what I typically do on the night of the New Moon to reflect upon the past lunar cycle and prepare for the new cycle.

You Will Need:
– 3 pieces of paper
– 3 white candles
– pen
– optional way to burn paper that’s safe

Tonight is a night of reflection on the previous lunar cycle and planning for the new lunar cycle. To aid me with this I write three lists on the night of the New Moon.

List 1 : The Previous Lunar Cycle Celebrations – The first list is of things that were wonderful and I am thankful for in this past cycle. Spend time thinking about this list and really reflecting upon all the wonderful gifts that you’ve been blessed with during this past lunar cycle. If you feel the desire to you can write your list in the form of a letter to the Goddess. I sometimes find that writing it in the form of a letter can open your memories and make it easier to access what’s happened to you during the month. After I finish the list I will thank the Goddess and the energy of the universe for all the gifts that I have received. I light a white candle as I am doing this. This list you can either burn as you give thanks to the Goddess or you can tuck it away in a journal or some place else of your choosing for safe keeping. You may even want to setup a monthly gratitude journal book to reflect upon in the future or a New Moon book for this exercise.

List 2: Previous Lunar Cycle Challenges – The second list that I write contains the things that I may not have done so well with this past cycle or challenges that I found difficult throughout the cycle. I acknowledge my part in what may have happened and look for what I may have been meant to learn by the challenges I was presented with. I forgive myself for anything that I may feel responsible for or have energy for that I need to release and ask the Goddess and the universe to help me improve upon these things in the next cycle. Once I am done with this I burn this list releasing any negative energy, fears, or attachments to any of the items to the universe. At this time I also ask the Archangel Michael to help me find and cut any cords that I may need to at this time. Cords are basically psychic energy attachment to people that are no longer for your greater good. I then surround myself with white light renewing the energy around me. I then light my second white candle symbolic of the cleansed and new energy surrounding me.

List 3: New Moon New Beginnings – From here I move onto my third list. I will take 5 to 10 minutes to meditate upon what I would like for the next lunar cycle. With this I include energy, goals, desires, hopes, dreams, etc. I try to envision how I want the next cycle to feel. I then write my third list. In this list I detail what it is I want to accomplish and ask the Goddess for her help. I light the third candle when i am done. This list I keep on my altar tucked in a box until the next new moon. At that time I’ll take it out and review it and use it the next month to see how I did.

I then take a few moments to just be in the magic of the night and with the Goddess and then thank her and the universe for their time and blow out the candles. Most times I will work specific rhymes with this month, but I take this as a creative and personal night. A sort of checking in with the universe if you will. I like it to be not as formal and more personal. You can modify this any way you like and make it so it suits your personal practice.

I hope you have a Blessed New Moon

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Basic Shielding Continued - Variations on the Bubble Shield

Basic Shielding Continued

Variations on the Bubble Shield

There are so many things you can do to modify your shield. From textures, to layers, to shapes, to colors. The basic bubble shield is a great way to get started. I urge you to work on mastering it. When you are comfortable with it you can start experimenting with the aspects of your shield to customize it to you. The other area of shields I want to go into with you a little bit is basic colors of your shields. You can do a lot by changing the color of your shield to what is appropriate.

It is also perfectly acceptable to have more then one type of shield. I have a complex bubble shield that I use almost all the time and I customize it to what I need in the situation I’m in. I can change it at a moments notice now. Though it took me quite some time and practice to get there. Along with my bubble shield I also use a cloak. I visualize my cloak as being a dark navy blue on the outside, and a beautiful snow white on the inside. The inside is really silky and quite comfortable around me. It helps me to feel protected. When I wish to become more invisible I will pull the hood up on my cloak and retreat into it. It works really well in stores. Almost too well as do find I get stepped on quite a bit when I use it which always makes me laugh. Because I have such a hard time seeing it, I love having tangible proof for myself like that to help let me know it’s working as it should.

Colors of Shields

I wanted to give you a basic background on colors of shields for you to use with your bubble shield. You may want to experiment with these. It can be helpful to keep notes on what colors you use and what you have noticed when you use them.

White Light - White light is the main color I use. It is the color of the divine. For those of you who work with angels it will help keep you surrounded with their love and protection.

Rose Light - Rose is a warm loving color. It works hard to keep all energy received very loving. It is especially helpful in protecting you against negative people.

Yellow - Like sunshine, yellow is a very uplifting color. You can use this in situations where you think you may need extra help staying in a positive mood.
Green Light - Green is a healing color. Use this when you, or someone around you is feeling ill.

Blue Light - Blue is a very calming color. You can use this color shield when you want to stay extra calm in any situation.

Purple - Purple is a psychic color. You want to use a purple shield when you are doing any type of intuitive work.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Shielding - Let's Get Basic

**image source Taryn**

Shielding - Let's Get Basic

I really encourage you to take the time to learn this skill as best as you can. This honestly has been the most important thing I have learned to control my gift. It’s what makes it so that I can go through a funeral if I need to, or watch a movie with friends without spouting waterfalls. It also allows me to keep my cool if I am in the presence of someone who is less then pleasant. What? Everyone in the world isn’t happy? Giggles. You know how essential something like this can be.

Right now, if you’re not familiar with shielding you probably have a visual in your head of a knight in armor carrying a shield in front of him. That’s not a bad visual. The purpose of that shield for the knight is to stop anyone from hurting him. While it doesn’t always work perfectly, it will help protect him from incoming attacks. If you think about it, I’m quite sure, just knowing that shield was there helped to bolster his confidence and calmness when going into battle or stressful situations. A psychic shield works much the same.

A psychic shield is a collection of energy that we place around ourselves and program to do what we wish it to do. There is so much you can do with psychic shields. It can take a lot of time for you to find the shield that is right for you. You may wish to have many types of shields that you work with. I could literally write a book just on shielding techniques...perhaps one day I will. For now though, I want to get you use to a basic shield, and talk about a couple variations on it that I believe will help you.

The Basic Bubble Shield

When working with energy, you will find that I mention white light fairly often. The white light is the light that comes from the divine. It is the energy that is warm, loving, and peaceful. The light that we are graced with on the other side. However you can have it’s benefits while you are here. All right, it’s time to get comfy again!

How many of you are familiar with your aura? Your aura is the energy that is made by you and surrounds you as you go through your day to day life. Depending on your mood, is what color it will be. For now, you just need to know that it’s there. It’s extension from your body varies depending on several things. For right now though I want you to envision it being about six inches to a foot away from your body. Have it?

Now, I want you to work on forming that ball of energy in your hands like we did before. However now, we want to make that ball of light surround us completely and protect us. Work on surrounding yourself with a ball of white light. Think of it like the bubbles you blew with soap when you were a child. It’s a layer of protection around you to stop energy from getting to you. So as you form this ball of light around you, I want you to envision it protecting you from any negative energy. This bubble will only allow positive emotions to come to you. Anything that will hurt, or harm you in any way is not allowed through it. When you are done, finish it by saying, “Only loving, positive energy may come to me.” This programs your shield and lets your intentions be known to the universe.

Each morning when you wake up, you want to shield yourself before going out for your day. You may need to take a few minutes throughout the day to redo it if you feel it’s not working anymore. Try to make it a part of your daily routine. Allow yourself an extra five to ten minutes each morning to protect yourself. It will make a difference as you go through your day.

Now how do you tell if your shield is working? I mentioned before that some of us can “see” better then others. I am one that can feel things better. If you are an empath, it is quite likely that you will be able to feel the energy of your shield before you can see it. Sometimes feeling your shield can be difficult too. So what are some other ways to tell if it’s working or not? Take a look at how you are going throughout your day. Do you feel confident and protected? How are you feeling emotionally? Do you feel in control of your emotions? These are all ways to tell if your shield is working properly. If it’s not, see if you can grab a restroom break for a few minutes. While in there, breathe deeply and reapply your shield. This should help you.

We also need to cleanse our shield. This is done by manipulating energy primarily through visualization as well. I usually do mine at night. As I’m falling asleep I will mentally scan my shield and try to feel it. I use my energy to cleanse any negative energy from it and tend to any places that may need it.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Your Root Chakra

**original graphic by Gloria Gypsy Fine Art America**

Your Root Chakra

Merry Meet :)))))) Almost all of you are probably familiar with your chakras, they are energy centers that our energy flows through. When properly maintained, they can go a long way to helping our overall health and well being. The root chakra, is one of the most important ones for staying grounded in your day to day life. When this chakra is out of balance we can experience issues with feeling secure, worrying, anxiety, self-confidence, hyperactivity, carelessness, and trusting those around us. It can also make you feel extremely tired all the time which just that alone can have huge effects on our emotions. When our root chakra is balanced you will feel healthy and fit, grounded, centered and confident in who you are.

The root chakra or Muladhara, is located at the base of our spine and really is the foundation for our energy flow. The Root Chakra is associated with the color Red and the element Earth. It's responsible for our heat and circulatory system. Spiritually this chakra helps us maintain our connection with our Mother Earth.

It's funny but I've noticed on myself and many others I've worked with that more often than not, this is the chakra that gets unbalanced first. I can tell right away when it's off now as I will start worrying about everything and bustling about not getting anything done. :)))) So while I try to maintain all my chakras regularly, this one probably gets the most attention for me. As the foundation for our energy, it's really important to always make sure this chakra is doing well.

How many of you when you are worried or nervous go on house cleaning sprees? Maybe it's just me but I've always noticed that I do that and I usually feel better after. The reason is that cleaning your house not only is a great physical activity but also just clearing clutter is grounding. This activity helps to balance your root chakra. Other activities that will help balance your root chakra include, grounding, yoga, meditation, gardening, and basically any type of physical exercise.

There are also a lot of foods that can be helpful. Most root based vegetables like carrots, potatoes, parsnips, radishes, beets etc will help; as will protein rich foods like eggs, meats, beans, tofu, and peanut butter. Are you one that likes spicy things? Bring on the cayenne pepper, hot sauce, horseradish, chives and anything else spicy because those all will help as well. Perhaps that explains my addiction to hot sauce? LOL :))))

For gemstones you want to go with gemstones that are good for grounding like hematite and onyx. You can also use red stones such as red jasper, rose quartz etc. :))) Below I put an affirmation to help you work with this chakra.

Affirmation: I am grounded, and it is safe for me to be who I am.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Tonight's Full Wind Moon In Libra

Full Moon In Libra

Merry Meet :))))) Full Moon Blessings! :))) I feel like Spring has finally Sprung here in New England. The snow is finally gone and the grass if starting to get green again. I'm sitting writing this to you from my outdoor office and we are going to almost 80 outside today. :))) I'm so excited! I dug out the flip flops and painted my toenails a sparkly blue this morning to celebrate. :)))) I thought this Full Moon picture for today's article was perfect as I can't wait to get back out on the canoe again.

Tonight's Moon is known as the Full Wind Moon and it's definitely bringing some changes. We have a lot of astrological changes going on right now and many of you have probably been noticing the challengers showing up on your path. While not an easy month it's going to be a month with some rewards if you work hard and meet those challenges as well as a month that you are definitely going to discover a lot about yourself. I seem to be on the fast track with the challenges they've been sending my way. Those are stories for another day though. :)))) What's important is that you stay alert and keep meeting those challenges that come your way. They are meant to bring about self discover and hopefully resolutions helping you to become empowered and move forward with your life. Don't be surprised if you revisit some people or issues from your past. You've got this ;)

This Full Moon is in Libra. :))) So the focus should be on making things beautiful surrounding you and making sure the relationships in your life are what you need them to be so that you feel safe, secure and comfortable. It's really important that you feel like you are in an environment where you can grow. :)))So take a good look around you and make any improvements where you can to make sure that you have what you need to feel safe and secure.

Have an amazingly magickal night! :))

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Jasmeine Moonsong

P.S. - If you haven't booked your Full Moon reading yet make sure you grab one today! :))  

P.P.S. - If you aren't a Daily Magick Member you can still join now in time to get a copy of tonight's ritual. :))

Working With Pendulums

**Image source Keeper of Hecate**

Working with Pendulums

I got my first pendulum several years ago, before I actually knew what it was or what to do with it. I was in a gemstone shop and saw them hanging there, and felt pulled towards them. While I really didn't know much about them, I was intrigued and wound up selecting a rose quartz one to bring home with me. The amazing thing was that I knew what to do with it naturally and found myself using it in the shop following my intuition. I decided to bring one home with me that day and then proceeded to sign up for a class on pendulums at Sacred Mists. I all but fell over when in the first lessons I was instructed to handle the pendulum the way I had done naturally in the shop. The pendulum is definitely the divination tool that I am the most comfortable with. My collection has now expanded to include several different pendulums, one for medium work, one for tarot, one for healing, and one for my everyday use. They always seem to find me. :))))

Pendulums are an amazing divination tool. The trick to them is to try to clear your mind before you do it and will want to ground and center before picking one up. They come in all different shapes sizes and colors and materials. When choosing a pendulum to work with, you want to select one that feels comfortable for you. I started out with a rose quartz pendulum and currently I work with a rainbow moonstone one, among many others. Once you find one that you want to use you can start with basic questions.

1. Show me yes (swings in a clockwise circle)
2. Show me know (swings back and forth from left to right)
3. Show me I don't know or unclear (swings in a circle counter clockwise)
4. Show me maybe. (swings back and forth from top to bottom)

While I find most people use this method of interpretation, it is not uncommon to have it vary, and thus some of you may find your get different results. Go with what feels right to you always. :)) Whenever I start a session with my pendulum I start with the four questions above. Make sure you always ask for permission to work with it before beginning any session. This is important, because your guides know you best, and if they feel you should not be using divination on that day, they will let you know at this point by telling you no. If this happens, honor their request, and give it a day before trying again. It always makes me laugh when this happens, as they know me better than I do, and after receiving my no, I usually will understand why immediately. As for the accuracy of a pendulum, for me it has had me convinced because I will disagree with it at times and then it winds up being right. :) I always love proof and I believe my guides like that.

Not only are pendulums wonderful for divination but they also can be helpful to use in healing. They can help to indicate issues with chakras, help you to find where an illness originates etc. The more you work with it the more it can do for you.

I've also found that empaths and highly sensitive people seem to have a natural affinity for pendulums. I've seen a lot of people try them and either have no luck at all, or it take quite some time for them to get results so don't get discouraged. With empaths the biggest trick is just to clear your mind. It's easier to start with questions that are not personal to you as well until you get the swing of it. When emotions get involved it can be difficult to get it to read correctly, your energy can mix with the divine energy and wind up with a mixed reading. If you've never tried one I definitely recommend picking one up! :))))

The Fool

Merry Meet :))) Today I wanted to take a closer look at the first tarot card of the Major Arcana, The Fool. When I first started learning the tarot, I must confess I really didn't care for this card, purely because of it's name. Today, I think most of us equate the word Fool with foolish, ie someone who makes decisions that aren't very good and is naive. However the name actually comes from the early court jesters of the royal kingdoms, otherwise known as the royal fool. In Medieval times the fool was employed by the King or by aristocratic households to entertain. Some actually held the viewpoint that the Fool was touched by the divine. Helps one to see this card in a bit of a different light huh?

A few months back I gave you a copy of "The Fool's Journey" which is something that helped me to learn the tarot. If you missed that article this link will give you a general recap of it: http://www.learntarot.com/journey.htm The Fool has an innocent nature, innocent as he is blessed by the divine, but his beautiful soul has not been scarred by issues in life. When you go through things in life, it may make you afraid to try again. However, when you are not scarred by life, you are unafraid to venture out on your own and try new things. This is part of why it is so important that we let go of pain in our lives, so that we can always maintain the innocence of our soul as we progress through life.

The Fool is all about new beginnings, and having the strength and courage to make leaps of faith. The world can indeed be a scary place, however sometimes we just really need to have faith that everything will work out and make that leap. In the story of the Fool's Journey, this card represents the fool leaving the safety of everything he knows and venturing out into life. As he goes on his journey he will have life experiences with each of the cards of the Major Arcana. The Fool is divinely guided and is following his intuition into the unknown with the hopes of a better journey. As he steps out on that ledge, he has faith that the Divine will continue to extend that ledge under him so that he will never fall.

When this card appears in a tarot spread it represents new beginnings and taking a leap of faith. It can also represent something unexpected coming your way. He corresponds to the zodiac sign Aquarius, the planet Uranus, and the element of air. He also corresponds to our crown chakra. When the Fool appears look at your life path and see if the divine is guiding you and you have been called to change your life and start anew.

Affirmation Chalkboard

Affirmation Chalkboard

Merry Meet  I love Etsy.  I am constantly amazed at how many magnificently creative people there are out there. So I stumbled upon the affirmation chalkboard above and thought it was an amazing idea to pass on to all of you.  Isn't it adorable! The lady who made this one has unfortunately gone out of business but I still absolutely love the idea. You don't have to change it daily, but if you have an affirmation you want to work with for awhile this would be a great little piece to have hanging in your house to remind you of it.

One method that is really easy is to choose a frame that you like. There are so many really cute frames out there. You can paint the glass with chalkboard paint. Voila! Instant affirmation chalkboard. I think these would be really cute in little ones rooms as well.

Another idea is to just get a small chalkboard from a craft shop. Or you can grab the chalkboard paint that's out there now and paint a cutout from a craft store that's in the shape you want or whatever else you can think of. You can then customize it however you wish. I love how she did it above. You could put it in a block of wood and add little flower vases next to it. You could keep it plain and paint the edges in a pretty creative pattern. Make it a masterpiece that's creatively you and you want to hang on the wall.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

The Littlest Witch

Original Artwork by Melie Melusine

The Littlest Witch

Merry Meet :)))) I was born with very strong psychic gifts and from a very early age I was seeing spirits. It's not something that anyone around me believed in so I was told that what I was seeing didn't exist. Try as I might to not see what was there I still saw them. So I went looking for answers very young.

I have always been completely fascinated with the paranormal. I read pretty much anything I could get my hands on growing up. I remember being in the children's library at my school perusing the limited section that they had on paranormal in the non fiction section while the rest of my friends were looking for books like the Babysitter's Club or Sweet Valley High. Don't get me wrong, I did a ton of reading and I spent my time with those as well. :)) I was always called back to the Paranormal though.

Growing up in Massachusetts I was introduced to the stories of the Witches in Salem very early on. It's hard to explain the pull I had to that story... it called me. So I began reading everything I could on Witches. I was really young at this point, definitely no more than 10. One of the books mentioned Laurie Cabot, Salem's witch and I was beyond excited. You must understand that back then the type of information that we have now was definitely not available. :))) There are so many books out there now. Back then you really had to dig to find anything so when I stumbled across her name I couldn't get a pen and paper out fast enough to write to her. I told her who I was and explained the visions that I had and how there really wasn't anyone around me who understood what I was seeing. I was really hoping that she could shed some light on what was happening for me. For as many books I read about ghosts and the paranormal, none of them went into what was going on with me.

Weeks went by and I did whatever I did as a little girl. :)))) Then one day I got a letter in the mail. It was from Laurie Cabot! :)))) She wrote back to me :)))) She told me that what I was experiencing was normal, nothing to worry about. She said that she couldn't work with me until I was 18 though and to come back and talk to her then.

I have been to Salem and been to her shops and I've done a lot of work with the material that she puts out there and she is just amazing to me still. One day I would love to meet her in person. :)))))

I think it's funny though that 30 years ago I wrote to a woman that I still look up to today. I'm not sure how normal it is for 10 year olds to be so drawn to witches or the paranormal lol :))))

I was never afraid of it though? Regardless of what everyone around me said. It's like I had an understanding of it from early on and understood the connections to the Earth. If I knew then what I know now I would have paid a lot more attention to my thoughts growing up! lol :))))

Have a magickal day!
