Dark Moon Banishing Ritual

Dark Moon Banishing Ritual


 What is a Dark Moon?

 Have you ever gazed up at the night sky and wondered about the difference between a New Moon and a Dark Moon? While these terms are often used interchangeably, they actually have different meanings in spiritual and astrological contexts. A New Moon occurs when the moon is positioned between the sun and earth, appearing as a thin crescent in the sky. This phase marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle and is often associated with fresh starts and new intentions. On the other hand, a Dark Moon (also known as the "Black Moon") occurs when the moon is completely invisible in the sky due to its alignment with the sun. This phase represents a time of introspection and inner work, as it's believed to hold a strong transformative energy. Whether you're a seasoned witch or just starting out on your spiritual journey, understanding the difference between these two lunar phases can deepen your connection to moon energy and enhance your spiritual practice.

During the Dark Moon, the moon is completely hidden from view, leaving the sky blanketed in darkness. But don't let this obscure phase fool you - it is a powerful time for spiritual work. Protective magick is particularly effective during this time, as it allows you to shield yourself and your loved ones from harm. Additionally, the Dark Moon presents an opportunity to release what no longer serves you. Whether it be negative energies, toxic relationships, or personal habits that are hindering your growth, this is the perfect time to let go and make space for something better. Embrace the transformative energy of the Dark Moon and banish that which no longer aligns with your highest good.

Dark Moon Banishing Ritual

You will need:
  • Two black candles
  • Cauldron
  • Paper and pen

Place the cauldron in the center of the Altar and put the paper and pen beside it.

Light the black candles and say:
The Moon is dark.
She hides her face from humans.
Yet we can know the true secrets of the Dark Mother.
Wise one, let me feel Your presence and power.
I need Your wisdom of releasing and removing.
If punishment be needed by those who work against me,
I leave it within your hands.

Turn towards the East and say:
Remove all baneful energy from my thoughts and mind, Dark Mother.
Let them bear no fruit within my life.

Turn towards the North and say:
Remove all baneful energy from my body, Dark Mother.
Let them bear no fruit in my life.

Turn towards the West and say:
Remove all negatives from my emotions, Dark Mother.
Let them bear no fruit in my life.

Turn towards the South and say:
Remove all negatives from my spiritual life, Dark Mother.
Let them bear no fruit in my life.

Turn towards the North and say:
I accept no harmful thoughts, words, or deeds from others.
They are destroyed by the powers of the Dark Mother.
If these baneful energies come from within myself,
turn them into lessons of good.
Help me to become balanced,
a true Goddess/God of light and wisdom.

Face the altar now. Write down on the paper harmful things you wished removed from your life (e.g. harmful thoughts about yourself, bad habits, baneful influences of people.)

Light the paper from one of the black candles and drop it into the cauldron and watch it burn.
I release these unto Your keeping.
Show me how to move beyond these harmful thoughts and energies
into a position of light and power.

Burn the paper until it is reduced to ashes. Raise your arms in reverence to the Goddess when the paper is finished and say:
Dark Mother,
Crone Goddess,
Wise and Elder One,
Teach me Your deep mysteries,
The Ancient Goddess magick known to my foremothers and fathers.
Guide and protect me, Dark Mother.

Bury the ashes of the paper somewhere off of your property.
