5 Minute Moon Magic

Are you feeling low on energy but still craving that full moon magic? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Even experienced witches sometimes struggle to take advantage of the monthly lunar power shower. But fear not, there are low-energy, high-reward spells that can help you connect with the full moon.

First things first, you don’t have to perform an elaborate ritual to call yourself a witch. Sometimes just standing under the light of the full moon and taking in her beauty can fill you with ethereal magic that you can’t quite get from crystals or herbal teas. Placing your bare feet on Mother Earth while gazing up at Mother Moon can provide a sense of belonging and safety, while also humbling you and giving you immense confidence.

Here are two simple spells to connect with the full moon:

Moon Water

All you need is a marker, some sticky tape, and a bottle with a lid. Write “Full Moon Water” on the tape and put it on the bottle. You can even add the astrological sign of the full moon to know what particular energies the water is soaking up – but you don’t have to! Moon water is moon water.

Fill the bottle up with water and place it outside under the light of the moon. Retrieve it in the morning and use it for ritual work or drink it when you need an energetic cleanse. Before using it, hold the bottle and practice gratitude to enhance the energies in the water on a molecular level.

The Moon Rite

This spell can help you store the power of the full moon so you can draw on it later. All you need is a talisman or crystal that reminds you of the full moon. Hold your object up to the moon, ask her to fill it with her power, and recite this ancient Thessalian verse:

“If I command the moon, it will come down. If I wish to withhold the day the night will linger over my head. If I wish to embark on the sea, I need no ship. If I wish to fly through the air, I am free of my weight.”

Use your talisman in ritual or spell work where you need the power of the full moon, or carry it with you for protection and a little boost to your magic. Remember, even the simplest acts can hold immense power when done with intention and respect for the natural world.
