This is really a basic Full Moon Ritual. I have taken ideas from Scott Cunningham’s Wicca: A Guide For The Solitary Practitioner and Creating Circles & Ceremonies by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart & Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart. And some of this ritual comes from my own mind.


  • cauldron
  • lighter
  • paper
  • pen/pencil
  • incense
  • any other ritual items you wish to have (athame, wand, etc.). If working outside, candles may not be ideal.

Set Up Your Ritual Area

  • Clean up your Circle area. If outside, make sure your area is free of stickery plants, animal feces, anything that might be dangerous for bare feet or sitting down.
  • Set up your altar (if you are using one)


  • sit on the ground or in a chair and envision a connection with the Earth. This is a form of grounding before entering the Circle.

Cast Your Circle


“Wondrous Lady of the Moon
You who greets the dusk with silvered kisses;
Mistress of the night and of all magics,
who rides the clouds in blackened skies
and spills light upon the cold Earth;
O Lunar Goddess,
Shadow maker and shadow breaker;
Revealer of mysteries past and present;
Puller of seas and ruler of the feminine;
All-wise Lunar Mother,
I greet Your celestial jewel
at the waxing of its powers
With a rite in respect to You.
I honor the Moon.
I honor the Moon.
I honor the Moon.”

(based on The Full Moon Rite in Wicca by Scott Cunningham)

  • Now you may do any spellwork you have in mind.
  • Write down anything you wish to manifest on one side of the paper and anything you wish to banish/release on the other side of the paper. Burn the paper (*safely!*) and imagine your wishes forming with the smoke.

Open The Circle

The Ritual is now ended.
