New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Scorpio Spell | Photograph of the altar setup for the New Moon in Scorpio Spell

The next new moon & solar eclipse is coming up on Tuesday the 25th of October and falls in the intense and powerful astrological sign: Scorpio.

This water sign is ruled by Pluto which helps us explore what is hidden and reach into our deep unconscious side. This energy paired with the eclipse makes it a powerful time to release what no longer serves you and bring about transformation. 

Please note this cleansing & strengthening spell can be performed any time, it is just amplified under the energy of the new moon & eclipse while in the astrological sign Scorpio. 

THE ALTAR

THE RITUAL

  1. Set up and make room on your altar for the above tools. 
  2. Cleanse yourself, altar and space by ringing your altar bell while reciting:

    "Malicious energies, spirits & intentions must leave"

  3. Light your spell candle to kickstart the strength of your spell.*
  4. Hold the Black Cohosh in your hands while reciting:

    “Black Cohosh, help banish any harmful energies, spirits & intentions from outside forces & amplify the properties of the other herbs within this spell”

  5. Drop the herb into your cauldron, then hold the Burdock Root in your hands while reciting:

    “Burdock Root, aid me in cleansing & healing harmful feelings about myself”

  6. Drop the herb into your cauldron, then hold the Thyme in your hands while reciting:

    “Thyme, provide me with healing, promoting courage, attracting good health and prevent nightmares

  7. Drop the herb into your cauldron, then hold the Yarrow in your hands while reciting:

    “Yarrow, assist me with banishing and cleansing malicious energies”

  8. Drop the herb into your cauldron. 
  9. Mix the herbs with your hands while envisioning the herbs properties working to achieve your desired result.
  10. Once you feel like the herbs have been charged with your intent, grab your pencil or pen and write down any harmful thoughts, feelings and beliefs that you may be holding onto. Then, write down your wishes to release what is holding you back. Finally, write down what strength and courage means to you and how you envision these qualities improving your life. 
  11. Fold the piece of paper, then hold the paper using the tongs and light it using the flame from your strength magic spell candle before placing the burning paper into your cauldron.*
  12. While your paper burns with the herbs in your cauldron, focus your vision on its flame and keep an eye out for any imagery that may appear - the universe or your guides might pass on messages via symbolism within the flame. 
  13. You may feel a rush of energy when your flame burns out; make sure you relax and ground yourself for a minute before finishing up the spell. 
  14. Now, you can place the remaining herbs and ashes into a mojo bag to carry around with you or add to a nice warm bath to cleanse yourself with. Be careful as the cauldron will be hot - either wait for it to cool down or use hand mits to grab the cauldron.
