Full moon time again! I’m so very excited and bursting at the seams with new opportunities that have been presented to me since the last New Moon!
When we join in the natural ebb and flow of the universe, and get used to the pattern of letting go and drawing in with the moon, we see results fast.
With the New Moon I set new goals of continuous health, business and financial growth and opportunity, and weight loss. I lost 7 lbs, and I was handed a retail opportunity that I have been looking for for years.
Now….what do I do?
Easier said than done. My stomach is in knots, I’m nervous, scared, and full of “what if’s?” ! Everyone feels the same. We are all scared, we all doubt ourselves, and afraid to make the jump int something new. So I designed my Moon Ritual Altar to banish these with the full moon. Of course I’m banishing body fat and unhealthy, unmotivated thinking. I’m drawing in inner strength, courage, wisdom, ancient guidance, and confidence.
I am now carrying my absolute favorite spell candles that we have used for years! I always incorporate these candles, along with my own that I have anointed with healing oils for the specific work I want to do. Here is a picture of my altar and a description of the tools I used and why. First I will explain the intent of my ritual.
Preparation is key. You need to clear your mind and relax. Write down what goals you have and what you need to banish in your life to reach these goals. Gather your items that you want to include in your ceremony.
I chose a spirit guide candle because I want to be extra connected to the guidance of my higher self, my guides, and angels. I also chose an “everything and then some” candle. Just because I want it all. I have some big goals that I want to hit fast and I need the extra punch. Van Van oil is clearing evil, protection, good luck in money, business, and love, and as a road opener. I have blocks such as fear, negative self talk, and lack of discipline that I need gone. I need protection against negativity, and money.
I used High John oil to bring about Good Luck and Draw Money. It lets you Conquer Your Condition, however bad it is. This special root blocks out negative vibrations and lets good vibrations come through. This is a male energy oil and has a more aggressive energy. This will banish anything!
As I began, I grounded myself and created my sacred circle. this is important because it contains the energy that you need to project into your work. It also acts like a protective shield. The candles that I used have their own spells written on them. As I read them, I wrote my name on the back, lit the candle, and placed it on my tray. I used the crystals for the reasons listed below and placed them on my tray. I wrote out my goals on paper and placed them on the tray. I also used a small red candle that I anointed with van van to clear energies from Mercury Retrograde, and High John for attracting good vibes.
When I got everything placed where I wanted it, I sat and put my intent on my spell. For my Highest and Greatest Good. Always. Never put your own intent on your work unless you know for sure it’s for your own good. I always keep it open because the universe knows best.
When you are done meditating and focusing your thoughts and energy on your goals, close your circle, thank your guides for being there, and cut your grounding cord. Send out any extra energy out as blessings to your family and friends and those that need it.
Remember…Majick is about YOU. Not the guy you’re with, not you’re nasty neighbor, your horrible job, or your mother’s illness. Practicing ritual is about self assessment. It’s about responsibility and reality. If you ask for your man to treat you well, you might be left single and in counselling before you can attract a man that will treat you well. You ALWAYS get what you ask for. If it means taking a course, learning a new skill, or looking at things a different way, you will be given the opportunity to do so. We are all on our own individual, unique path, and ritual keeps us focused on our purpose and potential. A main law is “What you send out, you will receive back.” Always keep in mind that if you send out negative energy, you will receive it back in one way or another. It’s always more constructive to use healing and positive statements and affirmations when doing majick.
If you are sending out healing to another soul, always ask their guides for permission and proceed with your process. Sending out healing and peace is almost always welcome.

Van Van is probably THE MOST famous of all the hoodoo conjure oils. It’s an all purpose oil, used for many different situations. Some of the many uses are: clearing evil, protection, good luck in money, business, gambling and love, as a road opener, charge up amulets, bags and lucky charms. As you can see, its quite indispensable as a magical aid. If you don’t happen to have a particular oil for a ritual, chances are Van Van will do the trick.
Use it to anoint candles for clearing or luck. Anoint that money mojo. Dab a little on yourself or rub it on your hands when gambling or applying for a job. I like to use my oils in an oil diffuser, just a couple drops in the water and it will help clear out that dark cloud. I wear it almost everyday to clear out negativity and help open those doors to opportunity 😉 If you don’t have any Chinese wash and you want to clean out that bad vibe, just put a little in your bucket of wash water. The uses are practically endless, get creative 🙂
