New Moon Spells
“Void of blackness, darkest night,
Ruled by Crone of power and might.
Push my instincts into life
So intuition grows and thrives.
Crone of Darkness, come to me
And let me know all things unseen.”
From: Everyday Magic
Even if you live in a part of the world where the Moon’s shadow doesn’t fall during this eclipse, you can still work magic for new opportunities and to bring change into your life. Light a white candle for the Sun god and a black one for the Moon goddess. Then repeat the verse:
As the Sun god and Moon goddess embrace today,
May new opportunities start to come my way,
During this eclipse, the Moon’s shadow is cast on the Earth,
Ushering in a time of balance, magic, and re-birth.
Allow the spell candles to burn out in a safe place.
By: Ellen Dugan
A solar eclipse occurs as the Sun casts the Moon’s shadow across the Earth. It unites the powers of Sun and Moon, light and darkness, logic and intuition. It is “a day without a night, a night without a day,” magically suspended from normal routines: a cosmic exception that proves the rule of Sun and Moon.
An eclipse is a perfect time for changing patterns. Use its power to break curses, bad habits, and so forth. Choose a small item representing what you want to dispel.
At the time of the eclipse, take the item far from your home. Hold it and concentrate on all that binds and limits you, symbolized by this object. Then say:
through the past
that held me fast.
Take this nasty
thing I throw.
Throw the item as far away from you as possible. Quickly bury it where it falls, then say:
Hide it far, far away
Lost between the night and day.
Leave it there, let it be,
Never more to
Cover the site with fallen leaves or grass to obscure it. Then walk away without looking back.

- Ink pen
- Piece of paper
- Three bay leaves
When the Moon is New, write your wish out on a piece of paper. Fold the paper into thirds and place the 3 bay leaves inside, visualizing your wish coming true. Now fold the paper into thirds once again and hide it away in a dark place. Keep visualizing your wish coming true as you do this.
Once the wish is granted, the paper should be burned as a thank you. Never tell anyone your wish, as telling will negate the magick.
From: Blessed Be Me
Invocation for exciting love in the heart of the person who is the object of our desire with the help of the 137th Psalm.
Pour oil from a white lily into a crystal goblet, recite the 137th Psalm over the cup and conclude by pronouncing the name of the angel Anael (or Hamiel), the planetary spirit of Venus, and the name of the person you love.
By the rivers of Babylon,
there we sat down, yea, we wept,
when we remembered Zion.
We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song;
and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying,
Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a strange land?
If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget her cunning.
If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom
in the day of Jerusalem;
who said, Rase it, rase it,
even to the foundation thereof.
O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed;
happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth
thy little ones against the stones.
(name of person you love)
Next write the name of the angel on a piece of cypress which you will dip in oil and tie the piece of cypress to your right arm. Then wait for a propitious moment to touch the right hand of the person with whom you are in love, and love will be awakened in his or her heart.
The operation will be more powerful in effect if you perform it at dawn on the Friday following the new moon.

At the first sight of the New Moon, spin sunwise on one foot, murmuring:
Twist a man
(give his name if you have a strong preference)
just like I’m twisting around you!”
- 1 amethyst cluster
- 2 crystal points
- 1 bag of sea salt
- Black bag
- Black votive candle in candle holder and matches
- Candy or something sweet to eat
You can make a new start any time, but some times are better than others. When the moon is new, she lends her energy to new beginnings.
The first month of the New Year is also a wonderful time to have a new beginning. The New Year is a strong and special time to wipe the slate clean. You can release all the old negativity. Get rid of old grudges and grievances.
Doing the ritual within twenty days of your birthday is also a powerful time. The time of each person’s birth has special power for that person. Now is the time for your happiness. Now is the time for you to have more love. Now is the time for you to have more abundance. Now is the time for you to have more luck.
Now is the time for YOU!
Getting Ready For The Ritual
To clean the amethyst cluster and quartz crystal points, boil 3 cups of water. Add 1 teaspoon of sea salt. When the water is cool, pour it over the amethyst cluster and crystal points. Let the cluster and points dry in sunlight. If you can’t put them outside you can place them in a window where the sun will shine on them.
To give extra strength to the ritual clean your home before doing the ritual. As you clean think that you are “sweeping out the old negativity”. Bathe with strawberry soap or bath gel. Dress in dark colored clothes.
Place the amethyst cluster, quartz crystal points, sea salt, candle and holder, matches, bag and the sweet in a basket or bag and carry them in your right hand to the room where you spend the most time in your home. This can be the living room, den, kitchen, bedroom or any other room that you use most often. Take the items out of the basket with your left hand and place them on a table that you have already cleared and cleaned.
As you light the candle say:
I light the fire that burns the old
This fire burns away past regrets
This fire burns away past hurts
Take a pinch of sea salt in your right hand and toss it over your left shoulder and say:
With this salt I banish negativity
With this salt I refuse old hurts
With this salt I get rid of sorrow
Take the amethyst cluster in your left hand and say:
The power of abundance flows to me
Health, love and protection flow to me
I feel the power of abundance in me
Take both of the quartz crystal points in your left hand and say:
I hold all I need in my hand
The River of abundance is in my hand
Health, love and protection is in my hand
Eat the candy or sweet and say:
Only the sweet flows in my life
Only the good flows in my life
Only the best flows in my life
Let the candle burn out. Place the amethyst cluster where you will see it often. Put 1 crystal quartz point in the most southern corner of the room, with point pointing to the south. Put the other point in the bag and keep it with you or put it somewhere safe.
Now begin that wonderful life you deserve! This ritual may be repeated every 3 months to reinforce the good flow. Enjoy your new life!

Here is a really simple spell to banish poverty, or anything else in your life that you’d like to get rid of. I love the symbolism of flushing away unwanted ‘crap.’ .
Begin this spell seven days before the new moon. Each day write on a piece of toilet paper, “I banish poverty from my life!” (or whatever else it is that you are flushing away). Sign your name and flush it down the toilet. On the seventh day write, “I have banished poverty from my life.” Then sign your name and flush it down the toilet.
