Full Moon Spells

Full Moon Spells

Working with the full moon means there is BIG and potent energy ready for you to harness and is a powerful time for performing spells. We have included our top 4 favourite full moon spells that you can easily follow for this upcoming full moon. 

We know that the Full Moon is a time for high emotions & intensity, but did you know this intensity can be used to supercharge your spells & rituals?

Working with the moons energy will help boost the power and success of your spells. Although you can cast spells at any time, certain moon phases will aid you in achieving maximum results. 

Working with the full moon means there is BIG and potent energy ready for you to harness and is a powerful time for performing spells. The full moon is perfect for setting intentions and conducting spells around attraction, self-love, exploring and finding your true path and purpose in life. 

The full moon occurs once approximately every 28 days. Witches traditionally celebrate their relationship with the divine at this time - this celebration is called an esbat, which means meeting with others in a coven or simply the divine.

There are many methods of conducting spells, and we have included some of our favourite full moon rituals below.

Full Moon Spell for Positive Change

Samhain is fast approaching, a time of death and rebirth in which objects and traits not beneficial to us in the mundane world are culled. To prepare, take the opportunity of the approaching full moon to kill off the negative influences holding you back!

We’ve adapted this spell from Spells8.com and provided an ethical and abundant cleansing alternative to white sage. You can read more about white sage alternatives here.

You Will Need

  • Rosemary cleansing stick
  • Cauldron or fireproof bowl
  • Lighter or matches
  • Several pieces of paper
  • Pen
  • Glass of water

The Ritual

1. Place the water next to your cauldron in case you need to extinguish unexpected flames

2. Light your rosemary cleansing stick with the matches, then walk around your room, directing the smoke to purify your space.

3. Outline your body with the smoke to cleanse your energy, you can also cast a circle if you wish

4. Take three deep breaths, inhaling the scent of the burning rosemary. Take three more breaths to centre yourself, and then as many as you need to achieve a full sense of calm

5. Close your eyes and listen to the voice inside, listening out for the things this voice may tell you that make you feel small, chip at your self-esteem, or limit your self-confidence. This could be anything related to you: your appearance, your performance at work, your level of skill at your hobbies, whatever holds you back. 

6. Write everything negative this voice says on your paper - giving each statement it's own individual page.

7. On separate pieces of paper, reframe each negative statement and turn it positive. For example, you might have written down "I did badly on my project at work, I let my colleagues down" - turn this into "I did my best and worked as part of a team. I will take the opportunity to learn from this"

8. Fold the pieces with the negative statements a few times & light them on fire in your cauldron, stating the positive versions out loud until the paper burns to ashes

9. Once you have finished, carry each positive statement with you or add it to your journal, anywhere you can look at them to remind your inner voice about the positive changes you are creating

Full Moon Spell for Love

Part 1: Activating the Herbs

You Will Need

The Ritual

1. Prepare for your spell by having your items placed nearby or setting up your altar

2. Cleanse yourself, altar & space by ringing your altar bell or burning your cleansing stick while reciting out loud or in your head:
"Malicious energy, spirits & intentions must begone"

3. Hold your herb mix or herbs one at a time in your hands and ask for help with the specific magickal correspondence you are utilising before placing it in your cauldron or mixing bowl. For example: 
"Peppermint, help me with healing and love"
Do this for each of the herbs

4. Close your eyes and mix them together in your cauldron using your hands. Visualise their magickal properties working to achieve your desired result. Imagine a warm glow coming from your hands that is connecting with your herbs and activating their correspondences. This process can take as long as you feel is necessary for you to work your intentions through

5. When you feel your herbs have been charged with your intentions, you are ready to conduct your spell using your preferred method. We have three ways below you can utilise: with a Mojo Bag (the most beginner friendly), a candle or a bath.

Part 2: The Spell (with 3 different methods)

Using a Mojo Spell Bag (best for beginners)

You Will Need
  • The herbs you activated above
  • A mojo bag
  • A tumbled stone associated associated with your intention
    ie: Rhodonite for emotional healing
    Rose quartz for love
The Ritual

1. Once the herbs have been activated with the ritual above, take them and place them inside your mojo spell bag

2. Add your tumbled stone into your mojo bag

3. Carry your mojo spell bag in your pocket or handbag & place it underneath your pillow before sleep

Your mojo spell bag will work until you can't smell the herbs scent from the bag, however, if you lightly "smash" the bag with your fingers you should be able to smell their scent again. If this is the case, it is still working! If not, you can create a new mojo spell bag if you wish. 

Using a Spell Candle

Spell candles are a very popular form of magick and are best done by dressing your spell candle using herbs that have been charged with your intentions. Any messages the universe or your spirit guides and ancestors wish to pass on to you can be communicated via the flames as the candle burns. Spell candles bring a lot of energy and is a highly recommended method for a full moon spell to take advantage of the moons energy under this phase!

The Ritual

1. Annoint your candle using your annointing oil of choice - this is done by rubbing the oil on the candle from the middle to the top, then the middle to the bottom. The oil makes it easier for the herbs to stick to your candle.

2. Dress your candle with the herbs you activated above. It is easiest to lay down your candle on your altar plate, grab a handful of herbs & sprinkle them across your candle, rotating the candle and sprinkling more on top until you have covered the candle.

3. Once your candle has been dress, place it in your candle holder, away from flammable items - it might be a good idea to have an altar cloth or plate underneath the candle to protect your surfaces.

4. When you are ready, light your candle with a lighter or match. Make sure you are sitting by your candle and watching the flame the entire time it burns.

5. Your candle will burn big and induce a hypnotising feeling. Sometimes the images that appear in your flame can help give you an idea if your spell was successful!

Using a Spell Bath

Spell baths are an extremely effective and relaxing method for conducting spells. These will take a little longer than the above methods as it is best to air dry and avoid showering or bathing again for another 12-24 hours to allow the spell to keep working and achieve its maximum benefit. It is recommended to take a separate bath or shower beforehand for this reason. 

You will need
  • The herbs you activated above 
  • (Optional) essential oils
  • (Optional) other items to add ambience to your bath, including music, incense, candles, or incorporating the spell candle from above!
The Ritual

1. Fill your bathtub with warm water & turn on your music, or light your candles if you have chosen to add them

2. Add the herbs into your bath water, adding in the essential oil if you have chosen to add it

3. When you are ready, sit in the bath & wash your body & hair with the infused water. Note: do not use a body wash or anything else within this bath

4. Lay in the bath until the water gets cold

5. Once the water goes cold, you can get out of the bath. As mentioned earlier, it is best to air dry and avoid showering or bathing again for another 12-24 hours.

    Safe witches are clever witches, never leave a flame unattended and always be prepared to safely put out a fire if needed.
