The new moon is the perfect time to do a spell to start new projects, bring things to you, start fresh. So with the Sun and Moon being in my personal Sun sign I figure this hold too much promise to let it pass me by. To capitalize on this cosmic energy I decided to do my favorite form of magick, candle magick. I also felt the pull of my personal Archangel Castiel. Lisa is extremely knowledgable about and has made many posts on how to work with angels so I consulted one of her blogs, Seer Pathways. Her post about working with Castiel explains why he is the perfect angel for doing work when the moon is in Capricorn. I also consulted the fabulous Starcana since she is an astrology guru. And to top it all off I pulled cards from a few different decks that I was intuitively led to choose from. If you'd like to do this spell here is what I used:
- Snowflake obsidian
- Archangel Castiel's sigil
- White tea light candle (if I'd had green or brown I'd have used that)
- Purple pen and a sheet of paper
- Tarot cards - The World, The Devil, Queen, Ace, and 9 of Pentacles
- My Creole Moon Tarot business card
Make a list of the things you want to manifest. I like to use 7 since it is my power number as well as the number of Spirit. Be specific and clear. I used a purple pen because it is the color of Spirit and my favorite, but use what feels right to you. Brown or green are great for working with the Earth energy of the Capricorn moon but white is always appropriate. Snowflake obsidian is one stone sacred to Castiel. All of the tarot cards I chose are under the element Earth and Starcana's post explains in detail why The World and Devil are good choices. As a Capricorn I identify myself as the Queen of Pents. Ace of Pents is about the beginning of a project that has the promise of stability and prosperity if nurtured. And the 9ofP is one of my favorites cards, and the version I chose is my favorite hands down. The 9ofP speaks to long term investments, hard work, and patience bringing tangible results and contentment. It brings a deep sense of accomplishment and the independence that comes with that. It's about being comfortable in your own skin because your growing pains made your skin a little bit thicker and your will to overcome your circumstances gave you the wisdom that can only come from life experience. And it is about finical independence, moola, cream, duckets, coin, paper, cheese, cash money. This card says you know you'll always land on your feet, whether you are barefoot or in 4" heels! Meow!
I am excited to have used this new moon energy. I'd love to hear if you did a new moon spell and how you did it. May the determination and emotional investment of the Capricorn new moon pay off for us all.
