Solitary Full Moon ritual by Sue Perryman



This ritual is best performed in view of the moon, either outside or near a window with a view. However, don't let that put you off if it isn't possible, the moon's energy is still present.

Decorate your altar with white flowers, candles and other lunar symbols.

You will need:

A cauldron or dark bowl about 3/4 full of water with a silver coin placed inside.

Something to eat and drink.

Like anything, scrying takes practise, if it's your first time practising scrying you may like to have some tarot cards, oracle cards or runes nearby as back up.

Cast a circle in your preferred way. I use the method below, but feel free to use your own words, and If you don't normally cast a circle, purify the area by either smudging or asperging.

' I cast the circle thrice about to cleanse this space and keep harm out Goddess bless this work I do, into my circle I invoke you As I will the circle cast between the worlds I safely pass.'

Stand facing the East and say:

' Guardian of the East, element of Air, you bring the energy of the new moon, new beginnings and the breath of life. You are Spring, knowledge, intellect and our thoughts. I ask you to watch over me, guard, guide and protect me during my ritual. Hail and Welcome.'

Face the South and say:

' Guardian of the South, element of Fire, you bring the energy of the full moon, transformation and healing. You are Summer, passion, creativity and energy. I ask you to watch over me, guard, guide and protect me during my ritual. Hail and Welcome.'

Face the West and say:

'Guardian of the West, element of water, you bring the energy of the waning moon, emotions and the ebb and flow of the tides. You are Autumn, dreams, love and intuition. I ask you to watch over me, guard, guide and protect me during my ritual. Hail and welcome.'

Face the North and say:

'Guardian of the North, element of earth, you bring the energy of the dark moon, fertile soil and growth. You are Winter, stability, strength and fertility. I ask you to watch over me, guard, guide and protect me during my ritual. Hail and welcome.'

Face your altar and say:

' I call to Cerridwen, goddess of the full moon, keeper of the sacred cauldron of rebirth. Share with me your gifts of intuition, wisdom and inspiration and join me in my full mon ritual. Hail and Welcome.'

Stand in the centre of your circle, facing
