We at the Temple of Witchcraft have been looking for ways to do outreach so that our more distant members can feel connected to the greater work of the Temple. The Pisces ministry presents a full moon circle here at the Temple’s home in Salem, New Hampshire, every month. This year our focus for those moon circles is spell work. We were inspired to produce some spells that will be used at the Temple full moons and to make them available to all our initiates and friends to join us. Each of spell has the intention of creating a better world for us all. Feel free to join us in this work as is appropriate for your own circumstances. You might join us for all of them or just a few. We hope you will take us up on the opportunity to join in on the Great Work.
Since we are doing spells, each one may require you to get supplies ready to cast the spell with us. All the supplies for the next month are listed in the postscript of the month before to give you time to acquire any necessary supplies. We have attempted to make them as simple, but still effective, as possible to make these available to the most people.
We will also be working with the thirteen goals of the witch in person and also in our journals throughout the lunar month. We will provide some journal prompts for you if you want to join in.
- Goal of the witch: Apply knowledge with wisdom
Are you thinking like a witch when it comes to what you are dealing with?
- Do you back your actions up with spell work and meditation?
- What comes to your mind when you think about wisdom?
- Who do you think is wise? What have they taught you? Do you implement this wisdom? Do you embody this wisdom?
- Do you seek wisdom before you act?
- What is one step you can take to embody and employ wisdom in your life right now?
Capricorn Full Moon: Crystal Grid for Healing Nature
A crystal grid is a form and placement of crystals using number, crystal quality, energy connection, and intuition to reach a certain intention. Sometimes this arrangement looks a great deal like a crystal mandala. This month our goal is for healing nature around us for our spell for a better world. Since the healing the earth needs in different areas may differ this crystal grid has some parts that are all the same and some that will be up to you intuitively. We will be using the diagram called the Flower of Life, this sacred geometry is a visual representation of the interconnectedness of life and is the seed blueprint of life.
In my last post I told you you would need seven quartz crystals. Crystal points work best because you can see which way they project energy but with your intuition you can see the “point” of any quartz crystal. Just use your intuition of what way the crystal flows. One of these quartz crystals goes in the center and may be pointed up. If you have a small crystal ball to place in this spot that will work as well. This is the “key stone” of your grid. The others go at the points of the flower of life diagram pointing out. They point outward to effect the area around you you wish to heal, not all grids do this. The six points are the Framework of this grid. Six points placed in the shape of a Star of David or hexagram is one of the most simple grids for healing.
Once you have all these in place you can choose to just activate it as is or add to it, listening to what the earth needs and adding crystals in places around the flower of life. If you’re going for the latter, bring out your crystals and allow yourself to be open to what is needed and arrange them in response to your intuition. If you don’t like the feeling of the grid, feel free to change it until it feels right to you.
When you feel it is ready, it is time to activate it. Place your hands over the grid and call on the divine to activate this grid with you for healing the earth and nature for the highest good of all concerned harming none. Imagine light flowing down into the grid and through it to the earth, the crystals radiating out the healing to the earth and all of nature. Leave the grid up until you feel its work is done.
Postscript: For next month you will need a piece of paper, a pen, and a place to burn said paper.
