A simple 3-step moon ritual you can start using tonight!

28 Comments

The Moon has always had a very significant effect on people. There is just something very special about standing in the light of a full moon...

This is a super simple and very basic moon ritual that you can start doing tonight and every time you just need some quiet time or time to reflect. You'll understand why in a moment.

This purpose of this ritual is to charge your magickal items with the power from the moon.

I have tried to simplify it for you. I am a firm believer in keeping things as simple as possible and then learning from experience.

For me, being a Pagan is all about practicing, trying things out and learning as you go.

Anyway, let's get into the nitty gritty of this...

Step 1: The Moon Phases

First of all, you need to know about the moon phases.

Each phase has it's own energy and it's different for everyone. The best way to learn what the phases means to you, is by practicing.

In the end of this post, you'll find a short and precise decription of how to work with the different Moon Phases as well as a link to a moon calender.

Below is a list of Moon phases, and the energy they create. This will tell you when the best time is to work any magick spell.

  • New Moon: New beginnings, fresh starts, optimism, hope and faith,
  • Waxing Moon: Building, accomplishments, creativity, strength, growth and learning, positive transformation
  • Full Moon: Abundance, harvest, wish-fulfillment, manifesting desires, sexuality, achieving all dreams, protection
  • Waning Moon: Letting go, clearing away, cleansing, releasing, shedding old patterns, undoing bindings, opening up problem-knots, making space
  • Dark Moon: Rest, Peace, deep wisdom, divination, contacting the guru within, letting things die away completely

Step 2: Charging Your Sacred Items!

Okay so, on one of the moon phases (full moon for example) you need to prepare your sacred items that should be charged with moonlight.

I usually take a bowl and fill it with water to "catch" the moonlight and I ALWAYS wear my Pentacle of the Moon to let the moonlight reflect in the birthstones (so amazingly beautiful), so it gets charged with energy for the next couple of days (I also do this on new moon, even though I cannot see the light)

Step 3: What To Do When "Charging"?

 While you and your items "charge" you have a couple of options...

You can recite a poem that has a special meaning to you, which will help you get more energy and feel refreshed.

You can also choose to sit in the Moonlight and mediate...

...or you can even do a chant if that's your thing.

I like to sit and look at the moonlight in the water and just feel how the moon charges me up. I seldom say a prayer or a poem, but that's just me.

You can't really do anything wrong!

As with anything Wiccan and Pagan, there isn't really a right or wrong way to do things. It's much more about listening to your body and soul and feel your way through life.

How long you stay in the moonlight is totally up to you. You can usually feel when it's time to stop. Sometimes I sit and meditate for hours and often, 5-10 minutes is enough to get me charged up :)

As I mentioned earlier, this is a super simple ritual, but trust me, when you have done this a few times, you will start to feel how you get more energy and focus during your daily life. And...

...if you do as I do and charge your Pentacle of the Moon with moonlight, you'll start to feel how the moonlight will affect you the next couple of days and how the Pentacles birthstones gives you an extra boost when you need it...

- "...but I don't have a Pentacle Necklace to charge with moonlight :("

No worries, you can charge more or less anything with moonlight.

My experience is that some items is more responsive to moonlight than others and so far, I haven't found anything that could beat my Pentacle of the Moon!

The Pentacle Of The Moon is designed to absorb as much as the moonlight as possible, while protecting you at the same time due to the Pentacle. The 3 personal birthstones symbolizes the 3 phases of the moon and

Thanks for reading and as always, I'd really appreciate it if you would take a minute to let me know what you think. Leave a comment below...
