Full Moon Ritual for Gratitude


We ask for a lot, and it is only fair that every so often we give thanks and blessings for all that we have. And a little thanks now and then to deity, the Universe or whatever guiding light you make your requests to is only good manners.


You will need:

Representations for the four quarters, if using

Central candle for deity, if using

Matches or lighter

Safe holders for the candles, if using

Something to eat and drink


For the spell:

A white candle

A silver or white candle

A divination tool of your choice


Cast the circle

Walking deosil (clockwise) around the circle.


With the power of the Moon

I cast this circle to attune

Magic creating a boundary to last

This Moon circle is now cast


Call the quarters


Facing North


I call upon the element of earth

May you bring your energy of grounding and stability to this rite

Earth, I welcome you


Facing East


I call upon the element of air

May you bring your energy of intellect and inspiration to this rite

Air, I welcome you


Facing South


I call upon the element of fire,

May you bring your energy of passion and power to this rite

Fire, I welcome you


Facing West


I call upon the element of water,

May you bring your energy of emotions and cleansing to this rite

Water, I welcome you


Deity


Facing centre


I call upon the fair and honest goddess Ma’at

And ask that you bring the energy of balance, fairness and truth to

this rite.

Ma’at, I honour your presence


Spell work


Light the white candle. Sit quietly in front of the candle and

focus on the flame. Think about all the blessings you have and

the things you are thankful for in your life. No matter how small,

really count each and every one of your blessings.


Now light the silver candle.

Stand up and hold your arms in the air and look to the skies,

say:


I give my thanks for all the blessings I see

I give my thanks for all that is provided for me

My dreams, my hopes, all that I need

Any guidance given, I will whole heartedly heed

With heartfelt blessings from me


Allow the candles to burn out. As the full Moon is an excellent

time to work with divination, use your divination tool now to do

a reading to see what guidance you are given.


Feast:

Eat and drink something to celebrate your ritual and to

help you ground. Sprinkle some of the drink and food onto the

earth after the ritual as an offering to deity.


Deity


I thank the fair and honest goddess Ma’at

For bringing the energy of balance, fairness and truth to this rite.

Ma’at, I honour you and ask that your energy continue with me as

long as is needed.

With blessings and thanks, I bid you farewell


Release the quarters

Facing West


I thank the element of water,

For bringing your energy of emotions and cleansing to this rite

Water, I bid you farewell


Facing South


I thank the element of fire,

For bringing your energy of passion and power to this rite

Fire, I bid you farewell


Facing East


I thank the element of air

For bringing your energy of intellect and inspiration to this rite

Air, I bid you farewell


Facing North


I thank the element of earth

For bringing your energy of grounding and stability to this rite

Earth, I bid you farewell


Close the circle


Walking widdershins (anti clockwise) around the circle


I thank the power of the Moon

I uncast this circle but stay in tune

Magic unties the boundary to last

This Moon circle is now uncast
