Planting Ritual for the New Moon

Acquire all that you will need for your new moon ritual during the dark moon. You will require seeds or seedlings, a pot to plant in or a well-nourished garden bed and a fully cleared amethyst crystal. Ideally purchase a new amethyst and bathe it in salt water to clear any residue from its travels…

Eclipse Ritual and Spellcraft : Yes or Hell No?

There are two distinct schools of thought about eclipse ritual. Some see it as supercharged and thus supremely powerful. True enough. Some know the energy to be erratic and unusual and thus the outcomes are never precisely as we envision them. True again. Given that intention is everything when it comes to ritual and spellcrafting,…

Ritual to Cut Cords

All too often we still feel tethered to the energy of something or someone. Yet we know intuitively that it no longer serves us and that it is time to move on. Cord cutting rituals are a wonderful way to energetically sever a connection. Best performed as a meditation in ritual space, they remain a…

Ritual to Forgive and Move On

Forgiveness is powerful medicine. A full moon  is a wonderful time to let go but this ritual can similarly be enacted on the waning phase of the lunar cycle or at the dark moon. Our life yet to come begs us to make peace with our past. Prior to the ritual, think carefully about who you…

Three Days of Darkness :: The Shame Game

As the second part of this series designed to prepare you for eclipse season by relinquishing another chunk of thy shadowy shit, today we peer at our shame. Oh the dark weed that takes root within us and demands we hide ourselves beneath it. Shame springs from where we have been marginalised, taunted or degraded…

Three Days of Darkness :: The Blame Game

The dark moon is the best time, every single month in a row, to clear the decks and make space for What Comes Next. And there is nothing that tethers us quite as effectively to the past than the blame game. Childish, pointless and disempowering in the extreme, blaming others for where you find yourself…

Chiron Backs The Truck Up

Our next cab off the retrograde rank is weepy wunderkind Chiron, emblem of our overcoming. Oh yes he bloody is. Enough with the wounded healer victim consciousness and the kind of stinking thinking and gross poor me-ing that keeps you tethered to your greatest wounds. Chiron endured despite the poison arrow in his side and…
