The Dark Moon



The new moon, or dark moon, is the time to begin something new. I like to use the energies of this moon when I am beginning a new project or when I want to banish a negative situation.

Whenever I do a spell or ritual I like to use a lot of symbolism. This helps me to focus my intentions, so on a dark moon I will typically use black candles. This represents the dark moon and negative energy. The black is to absorb the negative energy and the candles are to extinguish it.

For my spell I used: 3 black candles and my offering to my goddess was a poem I had written. Before my spell, I turned off the lights (this is also part of my symbolism), grounded myself, cleared my mind and thanked my goddess for allowing me to work with her.

The Dark Mother

Her face is hidden, blacker than night

I am bidden to perform this rite

I bow before your veiled face

Seeking ancient wisdom bestowed with grace

I ask that I may acquire

That which I desire

May I be filled with what I should know

To increase that which I want to grow

This I humbly ask of thee

So let it be.

Blessed new moon🌑

Hi, I’m the Witch Hazel. I’m a queer, Caribbean-American witch currently living in Asia. I don’t claim to be an expert, but I would like to share my experiences and thoughts on my solitary path, as well as my travels and any other things I see as interesting. May the goddess guide us 🌒🌕🌘
