Full Moon in Aries: Aries Key phase is "I Am". The Full Moon in Aries is a time to reach beyond your usual consciousness and to spend time with both old and new friends. There is a tendency towards losing one's temper, which should be eatched carefully, especially as the moon nears Taurus (which will occur Tuesday, 12:32PM). Since Aries is the sign of the knife, be especcially careful with cutting instruments, such as knives, on the Aries blood moon , as cutting tools can draw blood. A Full Moon ritual might concentrate on dealing with outward fire energy in your life. A bonfire is spectacular.
[From Fiona Morgan's "Goddess Spirituality Book"]
Sun Day - Day of Intent, Creatoin and Renewal. The Latin term for Sunday, our first day of the week, is Dies Solis ("sun's day"). In ancient Greek, it was called Hermera Heliou. In the Old English language, it was known as Sunnandaeg; in Middle English, Sonenday. All of these titles mean the same thing: the day of the sun.
Full Moon on Sunday:
Sundays are for success, fame, and weath, so imagine all the extra oomph you can add to those spells if a moon occurs on a Sunday. Success directly stems fro9m your own creative drive and ambition. However much effort you are willoing to devote to your own success directly influences the results you will achieve. You are the fuel that makes the success spells go. Magick is a powerful boost to your success and an influence to the situation. It speeds things along and smoothes the way. But it will not do all the work for you. You really do hold the power to influence these positive changes in your life. So be prepared to work hard, put your heart into it, and then work your witcherty for the best possible outcome.
Sunday Full Moon Spell for Success
- Golden candle
- White Candle
- 2 coordinating candle holders
- A pin or nail to engrave the candles with
- A fresh yellow carnation in a bud vase
- Matches or a lighter
- A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell
- Items of sympathy
- Yellow envelope or sachet bag
You may incorporate whatever size and style of candle you personally prefer: taper, votive, mini spell candle, whatever you life. Add the sun's astrological symbol :
to the golden candle, and carve the moon's astrological symbol which is a crescent shape moon image,
into the white candle. Arrange the candles in their holders. Place the bud vase holding the carnartion in toe center, back from the candle flames.
Now add an item of sympathy to this spell to help strengthen the spell work. The item that add should be in sympathy with what you are casting toward. Casting for a new job, promotion at the job you currently hold or casting towards a healthier lifestyle such as dieting and/or exercise add items that will exhibit these goals. Like a letterhead from the company where you are seeking promotion or employment or for dieting/exercise - perhaps a nice picture of your with your goals written on the back. These items of sympathy supply the energy link between the spell and the goal. Take a few moments to ground and center.
Light the candles, and repeat the following spell verse three times:
"I combine the full moon's magick with the day of the sun
For a winning combination, now this spell has begun
My goals willo come to fruiition beginning today
These two bright candles will illuminat the way
This Sunday night esbat brings rich power to spare
Success is mine as my word flow out on the air."
Close the spell with these lines:
May the full moon's light bless all the ways
I'll work my witchery on this day."
Allow the spell candles to burn out in a safe place. Keep an eye on them. When the candles are finished, gently take a few of the carnation's fragrant petals and gather up remaining wax and the item of sympathy. Tuck the petals, wax fragments and your item of sympathy inside of a yellow envelope or cloth bag. and keep them together and on your person, magickal space or altar until the next full moon. Allow the flower to stay in the vase until it begins to fade, then neatly return the flower to nature.
