|Leo Fairy – @ Etsy by Fairies By Nuria|
The Full Moon in Leo occurs at 11:38 PM EST on Saturday and is the first Full Moon of the new year! With the energy being on the Leo/Aquarius axis the feeling of creativity within ourselves that we can share with others is brought to light! The ruler of Leo is, of course, our life force the Sun. Leo rules the 5th house; our house of creativity, among other things. It’s one reason I picked the picture to use. I LOVE Etsy!! There is some awesomely creative artists on there! And sooner or later I’ll be putting up some of my work there; both artwork and magickal items that I make such as incense, herbal body sprays and perfumes, household sprays, etc. Aquarius’ rules the 11th house; our house of friendships and hopes and dreams. The traditional ruler of Aquarius is Saturn which also is the ruler of Capricorn.
And so the The New Moon in Capricorn that occurred on January 11th, gave us the need to find direction and security in our emotions. Now that we’re at the Full Moon we are at a culminating point of feeling that the way we express our individuality will directly affect the way we feel about ourselves in a way that also reflects our self confidence to others… But that’s not always so easy to come to terms with at times either and we all have our own doubts with the hopes and dreams we wish to achieve. So what better time than the Full Moon to cast a spell to cast out our doubts! Saturday is ruled by Saturn as well, and since Saturn can be a little restrictive in nature, usually spells are done in a way of binding or banishing. You see how everything just seems to fall into place together? Such is the way of nature! And so, here we are with a spell to get rid of self doubt and to pick ourselves up with some confidence. Of course, you can alter it if you like!!
✪ Spell to Cast Out Self-Doubt ✪
Items needed: a red or pink candle (for self love), white candle (for cleansing), black candle (for banishing), salt (preferably sea salt), sugar, 2 pieces of paper, and 2 heat resistant bowls.
*Before the actual working you may wish to take a bath and place some salt in it as well to draw out any negativity, or a shower and visualize the water bathing you in white light!
Arrange the 3 candles in a triangle with the red candle on the left side (the receptive side), the black candle on the right side (the active side), and the white candle at the top of the triangle (the divine). Place the 2 bowls between the top candle and side candles.. this sorta makes a star out of the items! In the bowl on the left, place some sugar; in the bowl on the right, place some salt. Make sure you keep a little of the salt and sugar handy for the next part!
Take one of your pieces of paper and write down all your doubts and fears. Really get it all out there of what you’re scared to achieve, any insecurities you feel, etc.. Place this in the bowl of salt. Take your other piece of paper and write down all that you’re wanting to achieve, your positive attributes, etc.. Place this in the bowl of sugar.
Now take the paper from the salt, sit and think for a moment of the feelings and really FEEL the energy that comes from this worry, fear, anxiety… then say: “I bind my low self-esteem and doubt. With these feelings, I can do without. Take this negativity away from me. And as I will, so mote it be!”. Light the black candle and burn your paper of doubt and fear in the salt bowl and toss some more salt into it to cast out your fears!
Then take the paper from the sugar and sit and think about how much you’re appreciated by others, the friendships you have, the creativity that is within you and the hopes and dreams you want to achieve. Bring this energy into you and feel yourself expand in hopefulness! Then say: “I bring to myself creativity and love. With blessings from the divine above. These changes that I need to see. And as I will, so mote it be!”. Light the red or pink candle and burn your paper of hopes and dreams in the sugar bowl and toss some more sugar into it for sweet blessings!
Take a moment to watch these 2 candles burn and feel yourself letting go of the fears as they’re replaced with of feelings of love, hope, strength and the desire to achieve the best that you can! Hear the roar of the mighty lion!!
Now light the white candle and continue to feel, and visualize yourself as confident, creative, and successful. Then say: “For the good of all, with harm to none. As I will, let it be done!”.
Continue to let the candles burn down for as long as possible, preferably completely. But if you can’t, take any remnants and either bury them in some dirt, throw them in a body of water, or just toss them in the trash!
I hope this Full Moon brings you closer to your dreams and strengthens you belief in yourself!!
