New moon in Virgo Aug 30It’s a New Moon on August 30th and it’s in Virgo. During the full moon on the 15th we took the time to evaluate the people we are hanging with.  If changes were necessary or forced upon us we took action and did one of the two candle rituals offered.  Now that the moon is new and in Virgo, we can fill that void with a magical spell designed to help us find a new job, develop new positive habits and making new healthy alliances.  We can work on attracting the right people who will resonate with our purpose and goals in life. Virgo energy is all about manifesting the right conditions that give meaning to our life. This is one of the hardest-working signs in the zodiac and she wants to make sure you get your new beginnings off on the right foot.

To put yourself in the right mindset for receiving inspiration, vitality and tenacity do this brief candle ritual.  Then the magical work you have planned for this new moon will have something to take root into. After removing all the wrapping from a Spiritual Cleansing Hoo Doo candle, place it in a candle holder and light it.  Speak into the flame all your doubts and fears. Let all those negative thoughts get burned up in the heat of the flame.  When you are done, know that your mind is now receptive to inspiration. Spray the Chakra Magic Answers spray above your head and affirm that you will learn of your next step in a dream or meditation or from something happening in your life.  Be open and willing to consider anything. Openness is what is needed while you and the universe get aligned. Don’t waste your energy on worry or doubt.  This will work as long as you stay in the creative flow.

Full moon in Aquarius Aug 15August 15th brings us a Full moon in Aquarius, the sign of groups and collective ideals.  The full moon is also a time when we make changes in our life or changes happen in our life.  With this month’s theme about finding joy in helping others, we can use this full moon to assess what enriches our lives rather than hanging on to what no longer feeds our souls.  Helping others is just one of the many things we can do to switch gears from being painfully self-absorbed to a pretty cool person when our personal stakes are down. If you find yourself going through an unplanned change in friendship, group, career or heart you will need some tools and some coaching.

 

I found an excellent blog on the 7 stages of losing a best friend by Samantha Most, https://thoughtcatalog.com/samantha-most/2017/08/the-7-stages-of-losing-your-best-friend/

and I think you can apply them to many other situations.  She breaks the breakup into the seven stages we go through until we pop out the other side ready to live life again.  It takes time and a serious helping of self-awareness to traverse all seven stages. Samantha aptly labels them denial, anger, depression, doubt, determination, appreciation and finally optimism.  As you read through her blog, allow yourself to be coached. Be kind to yourself and trust that you will heal.  

 

I promised you tools as well as coaching.  As a Coventry Creations die hard, I have two candle rituals for you.  The first our August Witches Union Spell caster Club card, Finding joy in helping others spell. The other is this ritual to help you heal from a change you didn’t choose.  You will need a Healing Blessed Herbal candle, Sweet Grass World Magic oil, the Tarot card 10 of Swords and the Tarot card “Strength”.  The first thing you do is read the blog by Samantha Most. Then you write out your situation and fold it around the 10 of swords card.  Next, anoint the Strength card with the Sweet Grass World Magic oil and then place it across the other tarot card and your paper. Place the unwrapped healing candle in a candle holder and light it.  Affirm that you are willing to take all the steps necessary to fully heal from this painful situation. Let the candle burn a few hours each day until it’s gone. Observe how you are moving through the seven stages of losing a best friend (as it applies to you).  Be kind and forgiving to yourself and others and you slowly heal and renew.

Copy of Magic NewMoonJuly2 470sqThe new moon is in Cancer and on July 2nd.  It is also a total solar eclipse.  This provides us with a unique opportunity to get in touch with our emotions.  So what does that really mean? It’s about being in the moment and realizing how potent every moment is. When we are fully present in the situation, meaning our full attention is on what is going on now, we can focus on how we feel.  Taking time to really notice our reactions can teach us a lot about what we believe to be true about ourselves, others and the situation we are in. You gotta take this slow too. Press pause and give yourself a chance to observe and take it all in.  This means, don’t react emotionally in the moment to situations that push your buttons. You can do some damage, and that will take even more effort and energy to heal. All of this caution is only about negative reactions. Joyful reactions you can let fly.  So much empowerment is gained when we are joyful.

 

Your magical tools for reducing stress, being in the moment, and connected with emotions will prove to be extremely beneficial with this new moon.  Notice we didn’t talk about new beginnings or starting projects. With Mercury going retrograde it’s not recommended that you do any manifesting magic.  Instead, we want you to reflect, renew and restore yourself. After you have done that, you will be a newer version of yourself and will face your challenges differently.  

 

Reflecting candle ritual

You will need an Emotional Balance Blessed Herbal candle and Healing Chakra Magic spray.  Get ready to meditate and spray the Healing Chakra Magic spray across your chest from right to left.  As you begin your meditation, ground and protect then light the candle. Next, visualize your heart chakra relaxing and opening. Now reflect on your feelings, reactions, and stories surrounding the event, the people and yourself.  Sort out the facts from the stories and use this information to help you understand yourself better. Ask that the energy held in your heart that clouds the truth be transmitted by the light. Ground and protect again.

 

Renewing candle ritual

You will need a Needed Changes Blessed Herbal candle and Love Chakra Magic spray. Get ready to meditate and spray the Love Chakra Magic spray across your lower abdomen from right to left.  As you begin your meditation, ground and protect then light the candle. Next, visualize your sacral chakra relaxing and opening.  Now ask for the energy in this chakra to be renewed. Release all old and unhelpful emotions into the candle flame to be transmuted.  When that feels complete, ask the light reflected in the candlelight fill your sacral chakra, renewing it with love and understanding.  Ground and protect again.

 

Restoring candle ritual

You will need a Stability Blessed Herbal candle and the Success Chakra Magic spray.

Get ready to meditate and spray the Success Chakra Magic spray across your pelvis from right to left.  As you begin your meditation, ground and protect then light the candle. Next, visualize your root chakra relaxing and opening.  With your intention, send roots from your root chakra into the earth. When you feel a strong connection with the spirit of the earth (Gaia) release all unviable and old energy that has been stuck in your root chakra into the earth.  Take deep cleansing breaths and say out loud, I release the toxic energy held in my root chakra into the Mineral Kingdom to be transmitted by the light. When that is done, ask to be filled with earth energy. Feel it restore and strengthen you throughout your body and aura.  Finish with a protection exercise.

Copy of Magic FullMoonJuly16 470sqOn July 16th, the full moon is in Capricorn.  It’s also a lunar eclipse. Cap the goat manages our reputation, place in society, and the tangible adjectives that define who we are. We can use the energy of this celestial body to reinvent ourselves and let go of the masks that are no longer useful. Also, this is a great time to do reputation work by letting go of the old and healing the internal issues around bad choices and decisions.

What a perfect discussion topic to take to your spiritual counselor, life coach or therapist.  Now is the time to heal the effects of bad choices and professional faux pas. Be patient with yourself and honest too.  If you need help getting clear and seeing the truth, spark up our Truth and Justice Blessed Herbal candle.  Meditate with it and let it clear the fog of your own press, justifications and poor ME’s so you can get right to the heart of what you need to heal.  Don’t waste this precious full moon on dodging the truth. It will only delay your success.

Doing this internal work will bring you to a higher plateau in your life, at work and with your contemporaries, family, and friends.  Go for it, you can do this and we totally believe in you.

Copy of Magic NewMoonJuly31 470sqWe can talk about new beginnings and manifesting magic again.  Mercury is going direct and the New Moon is in fiery Leo. Even better, you can and should make it all about you.  Now is the time to fluff and primp, to show us your best side and bring out the charismatic animal in you. Why do you want to and need to do this?  For a few really good reasons,

 

1. To practice self-love and appreciation.

2. To attract positive energy to you.

3. To create the foundations for your own magical PR campaign and your most important project is you.

I’m smart, I’m pretty and people like me, is only part of your magical PR campaign.

Spell crafting and energy work with your aura and chakras are the other part.  To find good spells, look in books, search websites and ask a witch. Coventry Magic with Candles Oils and Herbs by Jacki Smith and books written by Dorothy Morrison will teach you how to craft a spell.  Author, Judika Illes has volumes of spells to pour through. Websites we found interesting are www.wiccanspells.info and the www.crookedcrown.com.  Here at Coventry Creations, we have a catalog of spell cards at www.coventrycreations.com/witches_union.  To ask a witch, join our Witches Union: Spell Casters Club Facebook group www.facebook.com/groups/WitchesUnionSCC/ and get help from the witchy community there.

Healthy chakras and a strong aura are the foundation of your personal power and stability.  Without their support it’s nearly impossible to pull up the energy you need to manifest your plans.  Your aura and chakras bring this energy to you so you have something to work with. To learn more about the aura and chakras we recommend www.spiritualarts.org, and www.gaia.com. There are lots of books on the subject and our favorites are, Change your Aura, Change your Life and Healing Power of your Aura by Barbara Y. Martin and Dimitri Moraitis.  Activities that will open and clear chakras are Yoga and meditation. Products to use are Coventry Creations Chakra Magic candles and sprays, incense and music.  

 

We hope you take advantage of the Leo New Moon this month.  We can’t wait to see the new you.
