How a Witch Sends Off the Past Year and Sets the New Year as the Best Year Ever

Was 2018 a tough time for you? Want to release 2018 in a healthy and powerful way?
I know several people who had a rough year. Car accidents, health problems, relationship troubles and more.

Now that the calendar New Year approaches, we, Wiccans, have a chance to manifest the New Year as positive.

Here is a Ritual to help you manifest what you desire in the New Year:

What you will need:

  • 2 pieces of virgin paper
  • Black marker
  • Cauldron or fireproof container.
  • Drawing oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • Gold tapered candle. (You could use a yellow candle in its place.)
  • Candleholder
  • Pliers
  • Straight Pins
  • Large metal tray with sides
  • Altar
  • Tools
  • Cake
  • Wine or juice

What to do:

Read the instructions here thoroughly before you start.

On a waxing moon, Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Cleanse and consecrate all your items (the paper, marker, candle, and pins).

Dress your gold tapered candle by stroking the oil from tip to base. Place this candle in its holder, and then place both into the middle of the large metal tray.

Sit and meditate on what you want to bring into your life in the New Year. Think of each of those desires and wishes.

Pick a pin and assign a desire or wish to it. Using the pliers, hold that pin by the head, and heat it on the Working Candle.

Poke the heated pin into the gold tapered candle.

Repeat until you have all your desires and wishes for the New Year (as the pins) inserted in the candle.

Write “2018” on one of the pieces of paper.

On the other piece of paper, inscribe your name or signature. Then place the “your name-paper” under the Candle.

Light the candle and say:

Golden candle your flame’s now alight
Give me what I desire tonight.

Ignite the piece of paper with the old year written on it. Place the lit paper in the cauldron to burn away completely, and say:

Bad luck of this year I command, fly away.
Good luck of the coming year is here to stay.
With each pin that sings, a wish comes true.
Hopes of the future now bloom anew.
As I so will, So Mote it Be.

 You notice that as the gold tapered candle burns down, the pins fall into the tray. With the pins that fall, your desires will manifest in the coming year.

May this Ritual bless your life.

A Great New Year to you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How You Can Manifest Prosperity in 2016

change

Happy calendar New Year to all my readers!

Many of us want to start off the calendar New Year right. We tend to make New Years resolutions. Many of us want to manifest more prosperity in our lives. Let’s avoid the first mistake in prosperity magick: tending to focus on one’s outer environment verses the inner self.

Yes, you can ask for prosperity to flow to you. But the better way I have found is to empower yourself to create more income. In this way you’re not just asking for a handout.

Instead, you place energy into yourself to create inner change. That’s where the real magick happens, and this creates the most benefit for you.

Why do I say this? To change yourself is to change your world.

We perceive the world around us. We can see a world of roadblocks or we can see opportunity. It’s our choice.

Below I’ll share a ritual called New Years Prosperity/Opportunity Ritual, in which you’ll be able to exercise your choice.

About Bathing Before Doing a Ritual

Always bathe before doing a ritual. Some ask, “Can I take a shower?” If you do not have a bathtub and only have a shower, you can still soak the herbs (I specify them below) in a large bucket of warm water.

If you take a shower, you can clear the debris of the day off first. Then, you have a choice: a) you can pour the herbs-water of the bucket upon yourself or b) you can use a cloth and wash your body with the herbs-water.

Let’s Talk About Herbs For Your Ritual Bathing

Shampoo* and soap* preferably herb-infused form the best choice. Wiccans use lavender to help sooth and calm themselves to get their head in the right space.

(* Prior to your ritual bathing, Cast Circle and then cleanse and consecrate your shampoo and soap. Only use these specific items of shampoo and soap for ritual bathing.)

For a Ritual Bath, Prepare a Sachet

To prepare a sachet, begin with a 4×4 inch square piece of cheesecloth and some string to close it. Use these Bath Herbs: Basil, Ginger and Pomegranate. Place the bath herbs into the middle of the cloth. Then pull up the four corners of your cloth and tie them together using the string. If you don’t have cloth, you can also use a clean sock or stocking that hasn’t been used before.

Next draw the water for the ritual bath and place the sachet in the water. If you desire, light some candles and burn some incense.

Soak in the bath while meditating on the blessings you want to manifest in the calendar New Year. (Avoid getting stuck in thinking that you don’t know how you will accomplish your desires in the everyday world.) Imagine the spiritual strength building up in you to manifest the blessings while envisioning any negative energy being soaked up by the herbs. Know you have the power to accomplish your dreams. Again, never mind the how. The Gods will provide “the how.”

Do your part and invite the Gods to guide you in how you can make a bigger and/or better contribution and thus expand your income.

The New Years Prosperity/Opportunity Ritual

What you will need:

  • Three Candles (one each: yellow, green, purple)
  • Candle dressing oil (Virgin Olive oil that has been blessed and consecrated will do fine.)
  • Working tools
  • Altar
  • Cakes and Wine

Cast circle in the usual manner.

Light the yellow candle as you say:

My eyes were once shut,
I now make them open.
Eyes that did not see,
I now have vision.
I call upon you,
the four elements of Wicca

Make the sign of the pentagram on your body [by touching your forehead followed in order: the left breast, right shoulder, left shoulder, right breast and back to forehead].

Light the Green candle and say:

Earth for fertility of my own mind
Air for new beginnings in rapid time
Fire to move the direction I must go
And
Water to birth new opportunities for me to grow

Finally light the Purple candle and say:

I call upon the Earth and Sky
I call upon the Sun and Moon
May the power to change my fate be my boon

Make the sign of the pentagram again and say:

By year’s end may this take place,
for the good of all, I now claim my space.
I charge myself, my life, by the Gods’ grace;
Fill me with light so my desires take place.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony

Close Circle

*  *  *

May you and the Gods manifest the best for you in this calendar New Year.

Blessed Be,

Have the Gods Smile on Your New Year’s Resolution

“Okay, I told you what I’m working on for 2015,” I said. “What’s your plan?”

“Losing weight,” Sharon replied.

“Isn’t that what you said last year?” I asked.

“Yeah, but I am really going to do it this year,” she insisted.

Do you find yourself making some sort of New Year’s resolution? Or have you given up?

Consider making a spiritual resolution.

One example would be to dedicate yourself anew to the Gods (see my Simple Wiccan Dedication Ritual).

My own resolution is to meditate more often.

I’m concerned that many of us make resolutions that are too big. Instead, you can identify something small to do. For example, your plan could be: “I will have a piece of fruit instead of a muffin for breakfast each morning.”

The idea is for you to pick something manageable. Avoid some extreme diet.

Use the same pattern for a spiritual resolution.

Some people insist that they will start meditating an hour a day when they haven’t done meditation on any regular schedule.

Instead, pick a manageable goal like: “I’ll meditate for 5 minutes each morning.”

Make it easy to succeed. Start with a baby step. You can always increase the time you meditate once you’ve instilled the new, positive habit.

Less is more. Once you accomplish the daily 5-minute meditations, you experience good feelings of success! You can build on that.

Using the above baby-step approach you will be ahead of all those people who set extreme resolutions and fail.

Instead, you will succeed and improve your Wiccan practice step-by-step. The God and Goddess want you to succeed.

What well-considered New Year’s resolution will you make?

Blessings,

Moonwater

Happy New Year

Happy New Year 2013
Happy New Year 2013

Happy New Year!

Thank you to all my readers. You made this a great year for me. With all the parties and rejoicing that goes on at this time, don’t forget to help others. And what better way to do that than in the name of the Gods and Goddesses.  (You can keep your intentions to yourself if you like.)

With that said, this is a great time to review your commitment and dedication to the Gods. Renewing your original dedication ritual is a great way to further bond with the God and Goddess.

This can be as simple or as complicated as you would like. You could even just sit with a glass of wine or juice, light a candle and talk to the Gods telling them how much you appreciate them and what you plan to do for them in the coming year.

This isn’t a new year’s resolution; it’s a bonding experience between you and the God and Goddess. You don’t promise to do something that’s beyond your capabilities like solving world hunger. Instead, you might volunteer at a homeless shelter, feeding and caring for those who can’t help themselves.

You could volunteer at a pagan festival. Give your time to the community.

Don’t forget the furry, scaly and feathered brethren; you can help a wildlife sanctuary.

You have many choices. Take one step at a time dedicating your actions to the Gods.

Now is the time when you can help others and align with Wicca. Remember helping others is serving the Gods.

Blessed be,

Moonwater SilverClaw
