Blog changes

In an effort to get this blog back on track I have simplified it, deleted some of the attached one-topic blogs
and focused on Sabbats and Esbats, which was the original intent.
Other writings will be in 'stumbling upon the path of the goddess'
and the Borrowed Book of Charms is still active.

Repeating New Moon Ritual

Sorry this is late, I was thinking the New Moon was on the 12th.

New Moon is July 11 at 3:40 pm EDT
the new moon is in Cancer

You will need:

One candle to honor the Goddess in her new moon, blue or white is nice, any color is fine. I have a large pale blue/green candle that I use for all moon rituals.

Incense or sage for cleansing the area.

A small unused notebook and a pen.

Four items to honor the elements.
I sometimes use:
a small bottle of sand for the element of earth
a feather for the element of air
a red candle for the element of fire
a small cup of water for the element of water

When I am in a candle mood I use candles for the elements:
brown or green for earth
yellow or pink for air
red or orange for fire
blue or white for water

Cleanse the area with incense or sage. I create sacred space by simply grounding and centering and visualizing an area around myself filled with energy, closed to random or chaotic spirits and open only to those I invite.

Call the Elements.
I start with Earth. If you are using candles, light them as you call each Element.
Calling them can be as simple as 'I call the Element of Earth to attend and add energy to this sacred space' or as elaborate as you wish.

After calling the Elements, take a moment to honor Goddess, ask her to look favorably on this ritual that you offer up to her and light the candle for her.

Take a few minutes to sit quietly. Reach out to the Elements for additional energy and power. Fill the space around you with their power and energy and reflect on the new moon as an opportunity for new beginnings. An opportunity that we are offered over and over again.

Take your notebook and write something along the lines of:
I will manifest these things that I desire and need in my life and I will do so without harm to anyone else.

Then begin to write down what you need to create in your life. It can be a few things or many. Large or small, tangible or not.

Concentrate on manifesting these things in your life without harming anyone else.

Release the energy that you have created with this work and send it out into the universe to do your bidding.

Thank the Goddess for her presence in your life and put out her candle.

Thank the Elements for loaning you their energy and ask them to return to their own realms, putting out their candles (if any).

Bring yourself back to normal time/space, ground the energy creating your sacred space.

On the full moon take your notebook and cross off any items that have manifested in your life since the new moon. On the next new moon create a new list, leaving off the things that have already arrived. Do not just cross off and add to the old list, each new moon write down the new list.

On her blog Liz has a cleansing ritual bath that would be a wonderful way to prepare for this ritual. Check it out at Lizzie's Logic.


  1. Bad news, girl. I don't wanna lose you. Jesus doesn't, either. But He shall if you continue this horizontal idolatry/witchcraft which'll hit-you-in-the-ass when it comes 'round again. Don't do this, girl, and condemn yourself. The Devil wants YOU to practice all kindsa sorcery and converse withe dead to get mighty, and, after when you believe you don't need God anymore, you'll croak, and two things'll happen. After you rise to get Divinely Judged (at the general judgment), Jesus shall condemn you for not obeying Him, casting you out; the Devil shall be filled with everlasting glee, seeing you fall down to the Abyss where you'll thirst eternally for the Trinity. But find Him, you will not --- Here's what you need to do to save-thy-soul: find a church, preferably Roamin' Catholicism, take RCIA, repent and believe. You don't have that long, girl, and you AIN'T immortal. You're a sinner like me. Your choice, your demise. I love you. That's precisely why I'm doing such a flagrantly bellicose objection. God bless --- Here's some Latin fer ya: JUSTORUM ANIMAE IN MANU DEI SUNT ET NON TANGENT ILLOS TORMENTUM MORTIS (the just [wo]man shall be in everlasting rememberance). Be at peace.

  2. omg. this is a perfect example of the hypocrisy that exists in the christian faith. god, whatever you call it, is everlasting love unbound by human beliefs. god just IS. whether you experience the source of all things as, a man like Jesus, or another form like a spirit or other deity or simply as a single point in time. even your christian faith says that god will have many names to many people. have you ever stopped to think about that? Allah, Buddha, Jesus Christ, El Shaddai, Adonai, Jehovah, Bhagwaan, Waheguru, ... In the Qur'an is the ninety-nine Most Beautiful Names of Allah. Judaism refers to 72 Divine Names and Mahabharata text contains a thousand names of Vishnu. in the end, i think, it really comes down to what you believe. and we are all free to believe our way. it is great that you would want to comment about this practice, it is not great that you would cast a judgement; oh yeah, judge not lest ye be judged? come as you are but do not judge or discredit anothers beliefs if you can help it. harm none.
