I am rounding off my Moon Month with a discussion on moon magick. This actually ties in with my post, last week, on the moon’s personalities. I will also be mentioning what moon phase I am working with when I post spellwork on my Spells page.

Moon magick is not just setting up a ritual or a Circle. You can soak up the moon’s goodness by just sitting outside and enjoying the moonlight. I will often bless items by letting them sit outside during the full moon.

For May’s full moon, I have decided to do a slightly more formal ritual than my usual casual rite. I am using an idea from Wicca: A Guide For The Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham. I am toying with the idea of raising energy with chanting. I think that will depend on how many people are able to make it. Starhawk has some amazing group chants in Spiral Dance. Or I may use chakra chants.

The past four weeks have been a great reminder for me on how much I work with the Moon and all of her phases.

Years.

It has been years since I updated this blog. I made the decision to erase a few of my other posts as I think I wish to use this particular blog as a way of documenting my own personal spiritual growth. And other things.

This past Imbolc, I made the decision to REALLY dedicate myself to learning more. I have started going through The Inner Temple of Witchcraft by Christopher Penczak and Wicca: A Year and a Day by Timothy Roderick. Imbolc seemed like a great time to really start a project like this. It is a time of new beginnings and is an appropriate Sabbat for dedications, initiations, and transformations.

I have kept up with doing a lesson everyday from Roderick’s book and am working on going through one lesson every month in Penczak’s book. The Inner Temple has 12 lessons in total – it seemed like Kismet.

So far, in my 3 days (today will be my 4th) of lessons, Roderick’s book is making me look into my past and feelings. Penczak is making me look inward. Both books are, so far, working well together.
