Moon Day - the Day of Remembering and Feeling. Today is a good day to do Intuition spells - you are on Moon Day and the moon is in a Pisces transit. Use a Moon tarot card or a High Priestess tarot card in your altar set up for doing a spell on intuition.
[From Ellen Dugan's "Book of Witchery"]
Here is a Monday night tarot spell that will help you increase your psychic talents and focus on your own powers. This spell will incorporate many of the bewitching accessories that are the correspondences for Moon Day: bluebell flowers, jasmine, gardenias, white roses, white poppies, or moon flowers; have silver metal on the altar; use the colors of white, silver, and/or pale blue; use crystals or stones of moonstone, pearl, quartz crystal or sapphire; your essential oils should include gardenia, jasmine, lemon, lemon balm, lily, myrrh, or sandalwood; the tarot card(s) mentioned above and the foods, herbs or spices should include melons, chamomile, or wintergreen.
Try dressing a white candle with sandalwood or jasmine - these are both connected with the moon and they are spiritual scents as well that help encourage intuition and empathy. Carve a moon on the side of the white candle.
So let's see - you will need a plain white candle, or taper or votive (that has been prepared as discusses above); a candle holder; lighter or matches; a few tumbled moonstones or a quartz crystal point (to increase psychic abilities; essential oils associated with the moon; the correct tarot cards and a pinch of silver glitter or star-shaped confetti.
Place the Moon and the High Priestess cards on either side of the candle. Arrange the crystals on the work surface around the tarot cards. Also have that silver star confetti or glitter close at hand. Make the work area pretty and magickal. Prop up the cards so that you can focus on them during the spell. Arrange the other accessories in a way that pleases you and take a moment to center yourself. Repeat this spell chant three times. On the last line, sprinkle a bit of glitter or confetti on the floor in a circle going clockwise around you.
"I call upon the Lady to open my heart
In olden times, prophecy was the Witch's art
Clear sight, empathy, and intuition now bring
In all seasons, fall to winter, summer to spring
By the powers of water, fire, earth, and wind
With stardust and moonlight, may my visions begin."
Now, sit inside the circle that you have cast on the floor with the confetti and allow your mind to drift and your intuition take over. Lay out a quick tarot spread and see what the cards have to tell you about the current situation. A very simple card spread to use is to deal out three cards: one for the past, one for the present, and the final card to represent the future. Meditate on the cards for a moment or two. Close the spell by saying:
"As I close this spell, I bring harm to none
By moonlight and magick, my spell is done
In no way will this spell reverse or place upon me any curse."
You may either let the candle burn until it goes out on its own or pinch it out and save it to use when you do a tarot card reading at a later time. If you start to experience vivid dreams, then start a dream journal and keep track of them. Pay attention to your 'gut hunches' and start listening to your inner voice. Everyone has psychic abilities of some sort. Don't deny any psychic experiences that you have, no matter how small they may seem. Instead, write down your experiences and validate them.You receive more psychic impressions and become more comfortable with your own intuition when you begin to acknowledge the experience instead of brushing them off.
