Black Moon Magic
Witches, it's time to harness a huge Black Moon portal this fall and transmute the
curses, dense energies, and legacies that elude us and challenge us as a global collective of
evolving souls. Astrologically speaking, Dark Moon Lilith (research her please) transited into the
watery depths of Scorpio in May 2016 where she will remain stirring the cauldron of humyn suffering, shame, fear, blame, rage, desire, and CREATIVITY until February 2017. While it may sound daunting at first, please re-member that it is only by stirring the pot that humynity will be able to clearly observe and dispel the illusions that have kept us living in a seemingly endless cycle of war and trauma for millennia. The originating mystery of Death, Birth, and Rebirth reminds us thatdestruction often accompanies creation.That loss and fear
often precede abundance and joy.
The Black Moon
This October 2016 we will be experiencing two New Moons in one month. The first on October 1st and the second, which is known as
a Black Moon, on October 30th. This not only gives us two new moons to do our creative second chakra magic with, it brings us the exponentially increased Black Moon energy during the time of year when the veil is thinnest between us and the unseen. October 30th is the opening of an annual portal to the ancestor realms recognized by a number of global cultures as the time to look back over our left shoulders and honor those who came before us (Sankofa), and to call on them for guidance and intercession.
Halloween, Samhain, Día de Los Muertos, All Saints, All Souls....these are some of the commonly known traditional names for this period between the night of October 30th through the night of November 2. It is a time when we honor our ancestors who have gone
on before us and upon whose shoulders we stand. It is a time to lay some things to rest. To bury. To burn. To transmute. A time to plant profound seeds for the future and watch them grow.
This ritual timing combined with the astrological intersections of Dark Moon Lilith in Scorpio and a Black New Moon on October 30th provides a very witchy opportunity for expansive healing, clearing, and growth for ourselves, our families, our communities, and the coming seven generations.
This is a divinely feminine time of darkness upon darkness upon depth. It encompasses the deepest underwater frequencies of the Yoruba deity Olokun and the clarifying rage and destruction of the Hindu Goddess Kali. It is the most profoundly buried memory unearthing itself for a brief window of time. It is the archetypal essence of the Divine Feminine in her blackest of dark matter incarnations. This is a truly dangerous and bountiful portal. Let us give thanks for the transformational opportunity and get to transmuting the things that cause the MOST disharmony in our lives and in the lives of those around us.
Clearing Curses, Density, and Unwanted Patterns
This opportunity places us in an ideal position to clear extremely dense and
tumultuous energies like those that are a result of a hystory of trauma.
The annihilating effects of the rape culture and the imperialist white
heteropatriarchy, the incessant cracking of the capitalist whip over the backs
of those who would prefer the freedom of exploring their personal genius
over the confines of the global plantation marketplace, the dangerously
judgmental eye of the collective.... these are the frequencies we have access
to successfully transmuting during this critical portal in the Evolution of the
consciousness of planet Earth.
The curses we have inherited from past generations as well as from the
travails of our current incarnation are ready to be transmuted on behalf of
the collective. Now is the time to look at and fearlessly acknowledge the
harmful breaches and leaks in (y)our energetic anatomy as a result of
lived trauma and terrors. The painful parts of ourselves that we don't dare
look at. The blind rages, the anger, the neuroses, the gossiping, the obsessions, addictions, debilitating fears, the jealousy, the competitiveness, depressions that make you wanna "call in Black" to work, the dissociations and depersonalizations, the hatred, the huge well of shame buried right under the surface of that well exfoliated and moisturized skin..... Yes, I'm talking about looking at THAT truth. That thing that keeps us all on the run. That truth you fear and cover up with work success, or laid hair, or a huge Twitter following. Now is the time to address your purpose as an Evolutionary change maker living at the end of an era of devastating war and destruction. Now is the time to bravely walk in the dark and transmute lifetimes of pain, shame, blame, and suffering with the help of our benevolent ancestors and guides. Let's bring that Black-Femme-Dark-Matter Quantum Magic to the forefront of our personal and collective practices during this critical portal of global transformation.
Black Moon Transmutation Ritual
You will need:
An altar (ancestor altar is ideal)
-One or more cleared and cleaned
Transmutation Stone(s) and/or Crystal(s)
-Florida water, incense, salt, and/or other clearing tools
-A safe place in the earth to bury and unearth stones
-A tall strong tree
Note: This is a four-part ritual. If you are reading this after October 2016 you can still follow the guidelines for transmutative clearing work under future new and full moons. This work travels deep into the collective frequency of trauma and may cause some personal triggers during the two month transmutative journey. Please be sure you have the environment and support you need when you choose to do this work.
For each of the four rituals create a safe portal in your room, yard, healing space, car, or sacred space of your choosing. Some people draw the reiki symbols, call on ancestors, guides, angels, or other unseen allies for protection and guidance. Some draw a circle, star, or other geometric shape of salt around them, some clear with florida water, crystal grids, and/or stones. However, you choose to set your space up, do it well and do it right. After calling in your most benevolent guides and ancestors, light a candle at your altar for the ancestors. Ask them to protect you and guide you on this necessary journey into the darkness.
New Moon October 1st:
Sit and allow yourself to call in your darkness. Allow yourself to objectively observe your own dark side. Do it without fear. Knowing that all darkness exists in relationship to the frequencies around it and is part of the whole.
When you feel ready, get your paper and write down your "Fears and Flaws". Let your own personal judgements and impressions from others come out freely. Then write down your "Shames and Blames" including what you blame yourself for and feel blamed for. Write down your "Wounds and Traumas". Write down your "Regrets". Write down any "Legacy of Curses" you may be aware of. Then take a deep breath and lay it all down. Breathe deeply. Notice how you are feeling in your mind, heart, and body.
Now, write down your "Desires" - the things you would like to see manifest in your psyche and spirit in place of the shame, fears, flaws, and wounds. For some of us we have been wounded so deeply that just having the SPACE to exist without constantly mitigating the injury is all we desire at this time. Whatever it is, write it down. Check in with yourself. Are you triggered? Calm? Focused? Scared? Happy? Excited? Write this down as well. Are you aware of any recurrent thoughts going through your mind? A part of your body calling your attention? Do an overall scan and write down what you notice. This is a good time to clear your auric field with florida water, incense, a selenite wand, Reiki, energy, or prayer. Play an instrument or song that soothes and guides you.
Take your stone(s) and/or Crystal(s) and hold them in your right hand while reading the lists aloud. At the end of each list use your breath to blow the frequency into the mineral allies that you hold. Repeat this process two more times for a total of three readings and blowing into the stone(s) each time. Fold the paper and cover it with the stone(s). Place this bundle outdoors, on a windowsill, or at the altar. Either later that day or the next, take the mineral allies outside and bury them in a safe resonant place. Sprinkle the area with florida water and blow your prayers and intentions not the burial area. Leave a weather resistant marker on the earth to remind you where they are when it's time to dig them up. If you don't have land to work with, bury them in a flower pot. Set the written lists on your ancestor altar or in a safe sacred space for later. Thank your ancestors and guides for assisting you.
Record any and all waking and sleeping dreams you may have. Record synchronicities, animal totem visits, and other messengers in your journal over the course of this ritual process.
Full Moon October 15th:
Unearth the stones. Clear them with florida water or incense, then get a new piece of paper and write a new list called "Personal Genius". Write down your gifts, visions, accomplishments, strengths, and talents. Holding the mineral(s) in your right hand, read that list and blow your breath into them after reading the list aloud. Repeat two more times blowing into them each time. Fold the paper and place the stone(s) on top and set the bundle either outside under the moon, on a windowsill, or near your altar. Then, go enjoy yourself. Relax. Get a good night’s sleep. The next day place the stones and paper in a safe sacred space together for the next two weeks. Continue to pay close attention to your dreams. Record them when you awaken.
Black Moon October 30th:
Retrieve your healing stone(s). Pull out the original group of lists from the past New Moon ritual as well as the list from the Full Moon ritual. Revisit the first series of lists and add more if you have gone deeper into clarity around your experience with darkness. Read it aloud into the stone(s) while holding them in your right hand. Blow the message into the stone(s) three times. Reread your Personal Genius list of affirmations and accomplishments into the mineral(s). Blow in the frequency of empowerment three times. Then take the stone(s) outside and if possible, bury them in the same place you buried them at the last new moon. Make any and all petitions to the gods and ancestors. Be clear and direct. Plant seeds of vision for yourself and others. Give thanks to your benevolent ancestors and guides for transmuting this legacy of curses and density. Tell yourself that you ARE successful. Sprinkle florida water onto the burial area. Clear yourself.
Honor your ancestors as you naturally would during the next three days. Feed the dead. Pay close attention to your dreams for the next two weeks. Record them when you awaken.
Full Moon November 14th (or the evening of the 13th):
Unearth the stones, clear and cleanse them with florida water or incense and create a space for them on your altar. These stones are powerful healing allies who will assist with future transmutation work on yourself and others. Allow them to guide you on the journey. Take all lists that you wrote, read them aloud one final time, and burn them in a ceremonial fire asking your benevolent ancestors to smoothly and easefully transmute these frequencies on behalf of yourself and your multidimensional legacy. Scatter the ashes under a strong and powerful tree asking it to smoothly carry your prayers to the ancestor realm.
Afterwards cleanse yourself with a spiritual bath or florida water and incense. Get yourself something delicious to eat and or drink.
A full moon party would be an excellent way to celebrate the completion of this transmutation ritual. And yes, a party of one is just as fabulous as a party of ten! Your ancestors will be there and that's what counts. Thank you for doing the work. You are appreciated.
Many blessings in Peace and Solidarity,
