SPELL-A-DAY

September Song

By mid-September itandrsquo;s becoming obvious in most of the US that the seasons are changing. Weandrsquo;re moving out of summerandrsquo;s heat and into autumnandrsquo;s welcome cool. Letandrsquo;s celebrate the change of seasons. We can also acknowledge new changes we foresee coming into our lives. Letandrsquo;s celebrate them, too.Alone or with your coven, state your intention to welcome change. Decorate an autumnal altar with leaves, a few pinches of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla, and a geode in each direction. Lay Tarot card III, the Empress (aka, the Great Goddess), in the center, then draw a personal card. After reading your personal card, sing this beautiful chant by Starhawk:She changes everything She touches,and everything She touches changes.Sing it as a round. Add harmonies. There are long versions (with verses) on YouTube. Learn and sing them. The singing is the working of this spell. Youandrsquo;re singing change into manifestation.

Casting Acorns

At this point in the year, acorns have begun to fall from the oak trees in some areas. A simple divination can be done with a few collected acorns based on an old traditional method of divination. Youandrsquo;ll want to find three or four acorns that look distinguishably different from one another in some way (size, color, markings, etc). Designate one to represent you, one to represent yes, one to represent no, and optionally one to represent maybe.Hold the acorns in your hands and shake them a little. Think of your question, then blow your breath into your hands and onto the acorns. Then cast them. Read them according to which acorn falls closest to the acorn that represents you. Repeat the process twice more. Look for consistencies between casting rounds to divine the answer. This also works nicely in conjunction with other divination methods.

Home Renovation

Is there a place in your home that needs a makeover? Can you finally create your sacred space? Be sure to include magic and feng shui in the transformation: walls painted a color corresponding to the bagua, perhaps new trim to represent completion, new flooring for a firm foundation, or old and new furnishings to honor the past and welcome the future.When all is done, cleanse the space of the former energy, the vibes of the workers, and the paint/flooring fumes. After that casting, keep a piece of selenite handy. Decorate to enhance the use of the room: calm accents if the room will be slept in, something bright for the kitchen, and books and technology for the home office. Chant:A room of my own, a sacredspace; cleansed and cozy, notan inch will I waste.Romance, family, travel, prosperity;every corner holds opportunity.

Harvesting the Moon

Autumn brings the harvest. The full moons of fall used to make it easier to bring in fruits, vegetables, and grains from the field. Now is a good time to celebrate that.For this esbat, enjoy a feast of fall foods, such as apples, squash, and barley. Ideally, cook your own, but buying it works too. Afterward, step out in the moonlight if you can, or use an image of the full moon over your altar. Focus on lunar energy at its peak. Think of the things you have cultivated in your life this growing season, whether a literal garden or personal projects. Direct the energy of the full moon into those things. Visualize gathering an abundant harvest after all your hard work.After autumn comes winter, the season of rest. Once you have celebrated the harvest, begin thinking about what you will leave fallow during the cold time.

Full Moon Blessings

I can feel it coming. I can feel the energy of the full moon upon me before I ever see its luminous glow in the night.Sometimes, if Iandrsquo;ve planned ahead, Iandrsquo;m ready for a full-blown ritual. Other times, depending upon what life has brought, I may only be able to light a candle. Other times I may only blow a kiss to the moon. All are okay. A full ritual is okay, a kiss is divine, and a candle always lights our way in the darkness.Tonight, as the moon grows full, let go of what you think you should be doing and simply be with her. Take a nice bath or shower and go outside. Stand beneath the moon and bless yourself, your home, and your loved ones. Let the moon whisper to you and bless you with her magickal light.

Sage Cleansing Spell

 

California white sage is one of the most powerful magical spiritual cleansers. Unfortunately it is also an endangered species. Luckily it transplants well and grows easily from seed. Grow your own supply, to preserve the plant’s existence and to preserve, purify and enhance the power of your aura. 

Burn white sage as loose incense or use it to create [an herb bundle.]
