During a new moon, the moon is not visible in the sky. This typically means the energy available is low. People often report feeling tired and drained during a new moon. This is a perfect opportunity to become self-reflective, to look inward. This is an ideal time to really think about want you want in life acknowledge your goals, set clear intentions towards those goals, and write to-do lists. A time for a fresh start, and to let go of those things in your life that no longer serve you. Here's a new beginning spell you can do during the new moon.
What you will need:
1. Sage or another cleansing herb to burn
First, make sure you’ve cleaned your home physically. Toss out things that no longer serve you. Disinfect, dust, vacuum; really make sure your space is “a fresh start”.
Next smoke cleanse your space. Grab a sage bundle or palo santo and walk your entire home, fanning the smoke and repeat, “Blessed smoke of the scared sage (or other herb of your choosing) cleanse and bless this home. Let the
negativity disperse like the sacred smoke leaving only purity and love behind.”
Repeat this until your entire home is cleansed or come up with your own little chant.
Because we want negativity to LEAVE the home, we will walk counterclockwise beginning at your front door and ending back at your front door.
The spell below should be done immediately after you have completed these tasks.
New Beginning spell
What you will need:
1. Rose Petals or another flower petal you resonate with.
2. Moon water.
3. Piece of quartz crystal.
4. White Candle.
Sit with your items in front of you.
Put the flower, candle, and water in front of you. Light the candle.
Hold the quartz crystal in your hand and just sit with it, entwining your energy with the crystal. The intention of this is a new beginning, a fresh start.
When you are comfortable and ready, say the following, take a deep breath and say, “I am beginning anew.”
Blow your breath across the quartz.
And then say, “I breathe newness, energy, and light into myself.”
Pass the quartz over the candle flame and repeat, “I have fire, passion, and radiance within me.”
Touch the quartz to the petals of the flower and repeat, “I am blooming, growing, and thriving. I am beautiful even in the darkest storms.”
Dunk the quartz in the moon water and take it back out and repeat, “I have healed, I have transcended, and I will never be defeated.”
Now hold the quartz to your heart and say, “I have begun anew, a fresh start, and I will live my life being, happy, free and with a mended heart.
Carry the stone with you and/or keep it by your bedside. Hold it when things get rough or you’re beginning to fall into your old, bad habits.
Do this spell anytime to recharge the crystal and your space anytime you feel you need too.

Imbolc is considered the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It is recognized from February 1 – 2 and is also known as, Imbolg, Brigid’s Day, Oimelc or Candlemas. It’s a time to celebrate the recovery of the Goddess Brigid (It's pronounced “Breej,” or in some parts of Ireland, closer to “Breeds.”). Brigid is the daughter of Dagda and is one of the most well-known Goddesses in Irish Lore. Brigid is a Goddess that is usually celebrated and honored during Imbolc. She is a Goddess of the hearth, home, and inspiration. A protector of women and children and she is also associated with midwifery. The Goddess Brigid is well-connected to fire and encompasses all things to do with poetry, healing, and blacksmithing.
Imbolc is the first Fire Festival in the dark half of the wheel. This is a festival where we begin to see light and life returning to the earth. The Earth is being reborn with new life!
Herbs have been used for medicine, healing, rituals, and magick for centuries. The one thing to remember is herbs are living things. They each have their own unique energy vibration and should be treated with respect. When working with herbs I always recommend thanking the plant spirit for their aid.
There are literally thousands of plants and herbs out there to work with. Don’t get overwhelm! Let’s start with the top 12 herbs that every witch should have in their arsenal of tools.
Knowing the magickal properties will help you decide which herbs to choose from for your magickal purposes.
Jar spells are incredibly handy and can be used for many intentions. Once you learn the basics you can use a jar spell for just about any magical goal. Jar spells are also known as container spells or bottle magick. A spell is sealed inside a jar or container; this is extremely popular in many traditions of folk magick.
The idea of a jar spell or bottle spell is it keeps the magick (intention) concentrated and prevents the spell from disbursing before it has had time to manifest into reality. The other nice thing about jar spells is that they are portable and can be discreet if they are tiny! You can take them just about anywhere! Be creative with your jars, paint them, add sigils, charms, herbs, liquid, honey, etc – the possibilities are endless.
Remember to think of things that give off the type of energy you are desiring to raise or attract. Use items that have personal meaning and use items that are associated with your particular intent.
