The Magick of the Moon in Honor of the Super Moon Lunar Eclipse this Sunday
There are so many things happening in the magickal world this week! In addition to Mabon, the Autumnal Equinox, we also have a Super Moon Lunar Eclipse which will occur this Sunday, September 27, 2015 late in the evening.
First to explain the astronomy aspect, a super moon is a full or new moon, in this instance a full moon, that happens at the same time the moon is closest to the Earth on its elliptical orbit. So the moon is closest to the Earth and it's full and looks the biggest to our eye, hence the coined name Super moon.
Then we have, at the same time a lunar eclipse, which will occur Sunday, just a night before the complete full moon, but it will look spectacular none-the-less. With all of this happening, you might wonder what kind of moon magicks could be had.
Well, magickally, the full moon, in my study of witchcraft, is a time for banishing things you no longer want or need in your life. Putting things aside, finishing up projects, ending unwanted relationships, completing projects are all appropriate for a full moon and a super moon just gives you more power to your desired magickal goal.
Write the 'thing' you no longer want in your life on a piece of paper and on that night, burn it up and scatter the ashes outside, if there are ashes left over. If not, no worries it will still work.
A night of a lunar eclipse has additional magickal energy to it. This is a night when things that may be hidden in your life can be brought into the light. The truth of a matter can be brought to your attention. To do this, burn a yellow candle on the night of the eclipse, preferably during the eclipse. Your answer as to what exactly has been hidden from you will be brought to light within a month of the eclipse candle spell. Before burning the yellow candle, hold it in your hand and ask the God/Goddess/Universe to bring you the truth of a certain situation. State your desire out loud. Light the candle and let it burn for an hour and put it out if it doesn't burn out by then.
Traditionally moon magick can be done three days before, the day of and three days after the full or new moon. But for this particular moon the closer you can do your magick to the actual day of the full moon, the stronger the spell. Take note the eclipse is Sunday night, the night before the complete full moon, which is on Monday night. You can do a truth spell Sunday night, and a banishing spell on Monday. Do not do two spells on the same night. Keep your focus on one thing at a time.
Even if you do not choose to do a spell during this moon, going outside to see it and bask in it's light will be wonderful. There have only been 5 super moons since 1900. So it is a rarity and worth seeing for yourself. I hope you enjoy the super moon!
Peace and Happiness
