April – The Seed Moon is also known as the Growing Moon in Celtic traditions or the Egg Moon in Thomas's Old Farmer’s Almanac.
Throughout this period the focus is placed upon practical matters concerning material wealth and ways of earning a living.
With feet firmly on the ground this earth influenced Moon allows a sense of realistic and achievable goal setting and goal achieving, utilising all your gifts, talents and skills.
During the Seed Moon period it is beneficial to think about conducting magic that is linked with increasing gifts, talents and skills. Cast the following Spell on the evening of the full moon during the Seed phase and prepare for your talents to increase threefold!
This Success Spell is designed to bring you success and achievement.
Dried Thyme, dried Lavender, dried Chamomile & dried Sage in a flameproof dish
An altar candle
A small container to hold salt
A small dish or bowl to hold water
A tall red candle with holder
You can also add orange and red crystals such as carnelian and red jasper and the Tarot card of the World and the Magician and the Sun to your Altar.
Blend two drops each of the Cinnamon Oil and Geranium Oil with a small amount of carrier oil.
Ignite the dried herbs in the flameproof dish so they emit smoke.
Light your altar candle.
Concentrate and visualise a sphere of gold light forming around you and expanding outwards in every direction to form your Sacred space
Concentrate on all five elements of Air, Earth, Water, Fire and Spirit and how they are within you, represented on your Altar and in the world around you.
Raising your energy is bringing forth all your energy inside you and preparing to release it at the end of the Spell to go out into the world and create the changes you desire. Imagine the energy in the form of a white light flowing throughout your body forming a ball of light deep in your chest. Tense every muscle in your body until you feel ‘fully charged’. Relax and take a few deep breaths before proceeding
Anoint your tall red candle with the oil by carefully and purposefully rubbing the blended oil all over the candle. Think of the success you want as you gently rub the oil into the wax until the candle is covered and evenly scented. Set the candle in a holder at the centre of your altar. Light the candle.
Say 3 times aloud:
‘Achievement I want and demand
Listen now to this command
Success I will surely see
Bring it to me
So mote it be’
After your Spell is complete you will need to release and send out the energy that you raised. This energy is released into the world to create the change you desire. To do this you will need to stand before your altar and imagine the ball of light in your chest once more. Again tense all your muscles and begin to ‘push’ the energy upward.
Then stand comfortably with your feet apart and thrust your arms upwards and outwards to form a star shape with your body. Exhale and imagine sending this energy out into the air. When this is complete, stand with feet together and touch each shoulder with opposite arms to form a cross against your chest.
Relax, take some deep breaths and imagine and visualise the golden sphere around you becoming smaller until it disappears.
Creating positive energy is very important if you are to live an abundant and prosperous life and build up good karma. A great way to do this is by undertaking some charity work.
