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?
Sagittarius Full Moon: Petition to Generate Generosity and Good Works
For this spell, you will need a piece of paper, a pen, a safe place to work and a fire-safe container. The intention of this spell is to generate generosity and good works throughout our world community. As with any spell, we must take some action to put it into motion. The gods may call on you to offer something back to the community. Know that as you give, you will receive back threefold. Write out on your piece of paper a petition. You can write it out like the following, or change it to be one of your own making:
I, (your name) ask in the name of the Great Goddess, Great God, and Great Spirit to have the aid of all the Gods and spirits to promote Generosity and Good works in the hearts and minds of my fellow humans. May they see as I do that our work in this world is sacred and our offerings to others are sacred service to humanity and the divine. I thank the divine for all favors in my life and ask that this manifest only for the highest good, with free will to all, harming none. So mote it be!
In circle, read the petition aloud three times. Put it into your fire-safe container. If you want you can burn it after circle for fire safety or during circle if your space allows. Be mindful of smoke detectors! Raise the cone of power, then cross your hands over your heart in the God position. Wait for a message of how you can engage in generosity or good works to promote this spell.
Post script: For our next spell, you will need seven quartz crystals. Points are preferable, but use what you have.
