There is an old saying that “you can’t have your cake and eat it too.” Which usually means that you cannot or should not have or want more than you deserve or is reasonable, or that you cannot or should not try to have two incompatible things. The proverb’s meaning is similar to the phrases “you can’t have it both ways” and “you can’t have the best of both worlds.”

It doesn’t happen very often, but when Super Moon, Blue Moon, and Lunar Eclipse all happen on the same day (January 31, 2018), it is a perfect time for magick to overcome seeming limitations, to ask for more than you deserve or what is reasonable, and to imagine that you could indeed somehow, some way, have the best of both worlds.

I am calling it the Once In A Blue Moon You Have Your Cake And Eat It Too Spell. This spell can be used during any Full Blue Moon.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • Bird Seed
  • Honey
  • Cornmeal
  • Coconut Oil
  • Wine or Spirits

The idea is to make a special cake, take it out into nature on the evening before. Offerings are made, prayers are said, and the cake is then left as a gift. By leaving it out on the evening before, the cake is charged by the energy of the moon and the night, as the new day dawns, this energy is dispersed into the world at large. It may take a fair amount of time for the spell to come to fruition, and a key element is that once the spell is made, it is released and forgotten.

Making The Cake

  • Setting Your Intention

Before you start with the actual spell, it is important to set your intention. What do you want to accomplish? What impossible, incompatible, impractical, unreasonable thing do you want?  Usually, when working magick, it’s important to be really specific, but in this case, generalities are fine. For example: I want to be happy. I want to be rich. I want true love. I want to be young again…

  • My Cup Runneth Over

“My Cup Runneth Over” is a quotation from the Hebrew Bible (Psalm 23:5) and means “I have more than enough for my needs.” How fun it would be to use this as a measurement for the first ingredient in our magickal moon cake.

With this in mind, pour a heaping cup of bird seed into a large bowl. This can be a tea cup, a coffee cup, or a measuring cup, the amount doesn’t have to be exact. The amount of bird seed will, however, determine the size of your cake.

Run your fingers through the seeds, and think about all the little things that would need to come together to make your wish come true.  Think also about how fertile a tiny seed is, what a powerful little package it is. Allow your fingers to fill the seeds with a sense of purpose. Your purpose.

  • Sweeten The Pot

The expression “sweeten the pot” means to make something more desirable. The expression originally comes from gambling; when players make new bets, they will sometimes say they are “sweetening the pot” as they throw chips in. This means the pot (i.e. the money that will be won by the person with the best hand) is larger and therefore more desirable to all players.

This spell is a bit of a gamble, and we do want our cake to be desirable. So now that we’ve filled all of our little seeds with a sense of purpose, it’s time to add the honey.

Pour enough honey into your bowl of seeds to coat each one. One or two tablespoons will probably be sufficient. It will depend on how much birdseed there is. You need just enough honey to turn your pile of dry seeds into a sticky ball.

  • Grease Some Palms

To grease someone’s palm, a phrase that dates from the early 16th century, is to bribe them. The metaphor comes from the idea of applying grease to a machine to make it run smoothly.  There is also a saying that “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” which conveys the idea that the most noticeable (or loudest) problems are the ones most likely to get attention.  The purpose is “to facilitate, expedite, ease, or aid something or some process; to make or help things run more smoothly or more easily.”

I love the idea of using Coconut Oil as our grease of choice, since coconuts grow on palm trees, and we’re greasing some palms. It will be easier to add it to our sticky ball if it’s been warmed up a bit and is in liquid form.

About a quarter of a cup should do if you’ve used about a cup of seeds, but you may need more. Be sure and rub some on the palms of your hands, maybe give some thought to the squeaky wheels that might need smoothing.

If your mixture of seeds and honey still seem soft and crumbly after adding the coconut oil, add more coconut oil, and then chill it for a little while. The coconut oil should solidify and even though it might be delicate, your cake should hold together pretty well. The chilling can be done either before or after the next step, which is adding the cornmeal.

  • Ripe For Harvest

What we plant in the soil of contemplation,
we shall reap in the harvest of action.
~Meister Eckhart

Corn, by its very nature is a sacred and vital plant. Its presence allows the people to live, thrive, grow and prosper. Because of this role, Corn Meal can be used to bless people, places, and objects. Imagine that whenever corn meal is used in this capacity that it is like a blanket of energy. It surrounds and marks the intended target with its powerful spirit, lending it gifts of vitality, fruitfulness, and rejuvenation. Keeping the idea of this blanket in mind, you can also see it as a mantle of sorts. When it is sprinkled over a person or object, that mantle is shared and covers the object, making it sacred as well.

With this in mind, spread a generous handful of cornmeal over your mixture. Shape it into a round moon shaped disk, covered completely with cornmeal, top and bottom. If the cake seems too soft, you can chill it in the freezer for a few minutes, this should solidify the coconut oil, and the cake will harden enough for gentle handling.

Performing The Ritual

For this you will need a place in nature to leave your cake. It will be best if you can leave it on a natural altar, such as a flat rock. If that is not available, you could leave it at the base of a tree, on a large round leaf, or in a circle of leaves, twigs, and/or small stones.

Begin at sunset, or just after dark. Place your cake on the altar of your choice. And then pour a circle of wine around it, and invoke the Powers, the Gods, and Spirits. Say:

From strong earth below me
To the wide sky above me
I call the Powers, the Gods,
Those in Spirit who love me.

I want my cake. I want to eat it too.
Here is one I made for you.

I thought I couldn’t ~ but maybe I could.
I thought I wouldn’t ~ but maybe I would.
I thought you can’t ~ but maybe you can
Make the impossible ~ a possible plan.

Now, in your own words explain what you are asking for.

Take a few moments to really feel the energy, and then say thank you, swipe your hands together twice to cut the connection, and walk away. Don’t look back.

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
