Waxing Gibbous Moon Ritual



Taken from Rachel Patterson's forthcoming book 'Beneath the Moon - Witchcraft and Moon Magic for a Deeper Practice' published by Moon Books


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:


Image or photograph of a frog (you can visualise this, but it helps

to have a focal point)

A white or light coloured candle

A black or dark coloured candle

Ground cinnamon


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 Queen of Magic, the goddess Isis

And ask that you bring the energy of change, transition and

transformation to this rite.

Isis, I honour your presence


Spell work:

Set your image of the frog in front of you where you

can see it properly. Pop the candles in front of the image, the

black on the left and the white to your right. Get the image of the

frog in your mind. Now light the black candle and say:


Magic of frog from the fairy tale

Change is a journey that will not fail

Transformation with a kiss

Work this magic, it will not miss


Sprinkle some cinnamon on the candle (carefully). Now snuff

out the black candle.

Light the white candle. Repeat the chant, then sprinkle the

white candle with cinnamon.

Sit quietly focusing on the image of the frog and visualise the

transformation that you want to occur.

When you are ready snuff out the candle.

Dispose of the black candle. You can leave the white candle

and the image of the frog on your altar. If you need a reminder

or a boost to your journey relight the white candle.


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 Queen of Magic, the goddess Isis

For bringing the energy of change, transition and transformation

to this rite.

Isis, 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
