Today is the first day after the full moon. It puts us in a release cycle of the moon phase and is a great time for some letting go, in the case purifying the emotions.
We all get bogged down with old “junk” and it is very clearing to purify those emotions and let go of all anger, hurt, resentments and such.
It is like hitting delete on your computer.
We live in a constant state of angst these days and it is a necessary part of life to purify emotions to open ourselves up to the bright new possibilities of the future.
As this was a Super Moon and brings the promise of change for the better, why not take a few minutes to clear out all the past?
Below is a simple excercise to Purify the emotions!
Sometime we just need to clear out all the old emotions and make room for new! Today is the first day of the release cycle after the Super Full Moon. It is an excellent time to release the old and make room for the new!!!
May be done any evening during the waning moon (release)
A white candle
A bowl of water
A small bowl of salt
Dried sage in something you can burn it in
I use these elements to cleanse any toxins that may
Cloud my ability to flow
I release negativity to fire
(wave your hand through the flame of the candle)
I release blockages in my earth
(rub salt on hands)
I clear my own air
(wave the smoking sage in front of you)
and I purify my water
(dip your hands in water)
I ask that the release be gentle
I affirm my trust and faith in my own abundant flow
So be it
And so it is
Dispose of ingredients immediately
This candle may be used again for THIS spell only
Most of us have been hurt along the way. Especially when it comes to relationships, be it soulmates, love relationships, or even friendships.
The key is in the healing self. Learning to trust again. Mainly healing ourselves to trust ourselves, to believe in our own intuition, to follow our “gut” feeling.
Healing self calls for some realistic viewing of the situation, especially relationships and accepting our part “if only” and “yeah but” and take a look at the realistic way the relationship really was all along, and you will see many times we are in “wish” mode. And waiting for the person to change.
We can only change ourselves and this will change the energies around you.
We cannot look for a person , place or thing to make us happy. It is an inside job.
Healing self–treat yourself as you would want others to treat you, love yourself, be good to you let go of the past-it is after all-PAST! Turn you eyes forward and allow your heart to open to healing self.
The pain in our lives does not define us, it makes us learn, grow and become stronger!!
What an awesome individual you are!!
According to practitioners of color therapy, the link between colors, moods and our emotions runs deep. They believe that not only do colors affect our emotions but they can heal as well.
So let’s begin by looking at a simplified outline of the magical color of the day.
Sunday, our first day of the week.
Sunday corresponds to the sun, our closest star. This day is full of wonder and all sorts of potential for success, wealth, and fame. Sundays are for personal achievements of any kind such as working towards a promotion at your job, seeking fame and wealth.
The magical color of day are Orange and gold, pink for love
Adventure, change, love
Sitting outside at sunrise, wearing orange clothing, pink jewels, arrange Sunflowers in a vase, scatter marigold petals to encourage prosperity
This magical day of the week is dedicated to the moon and all of her magic and mystery. Mondays are for illusion, prophetic dreaming, emotions, travel, and fertility.
The magical color of the day is white.
Purity, wholesomeness, feminine,
Getting outside and looking for the moon in the heavens. Sit under her light and absorb a little glamour. Call down the moon.
Empower your silver jewelry by setting it out under the light of the moon. Wear moonstone or pearl jewelry. Be mysterious and subtle and wear moon-associated colors such as white, silver, and blue the flowers that are associated with the moon,
White roses and gardenias are flowers of the moon. Think of the femme fatale.
Tuesday: Tuesday is a Mars day, and just like the god of war, this is the time to tap into energy to call for strength and courage. Also a sex day. Some suggestions for Tuesday enchantments would include:

This day is sacred to many other gods and goddesses of love such as Eros, Venus, Aphrodite, and the Norse goddess that gave the day it’s name, Freya (also a great lingerie). This day is for love beauty, music and the arts.
Magical colors of the day are off white for things sacred, Indigo for mystery and artistic talent, blues for tranquility.
A blue candle brings calmness, pink roses for inner beauty
Carrying a rose quartz with you today to send out some gentle and loving vibes to those crabby co-worker
Saturday: This day of the week got it’s name from Saturn. This day is obviously associated with the planet Saturn and is our last day of the week. Traditionally Saturdays are great days for protection, eliminating a negative situation, and generally a good time to clean up any magical messes that you have been ignoring and those messes at home interfering with clear thinking.
Wear the magical color of the day, black and deep purple. Here is your perfect excuse to be dramatic and witchy.
Burning black candles to absorb negativity and burning purple ones to increase your magical wisdom and boost your spirituality
Cleaning your house and cleansing it while you are at it. Think of hitting the delete button.
Every day is a magical day. Just how enchanting of a day it turns out to be is completely up to you
On a piece of paper write down what it is you are releasing. The fear of not having enough of something, not being good enough,smart enough, strong enough. All this can block all our efforts. If you do not know what your fear is — simply leave it blank and the universe will fill it in for you.
To Remove fear
One red candle
one white candle
On the first day after the Full Moon, Light the red and then the white giving up all your fear and anxiety to the higher power in your life. Let it burn till done.
I use the glass jar candles that burn for about 7 days. These are usually found in grocery, drug stores and the .99 store. They sometime have saints on them. I place mine on a cookie sheet, pie tin or candle holder in case of cracking as it gets lower and hotter.
When you use Candle Magick, you are causing changes in the universe. While there are constructive and destructive changes you can initiate (notice I did not say good and bad). Universal energies are neutral! They are not “good” or “evil” as in the movies.
Example-constructive to bring something as opposed to destructive, destroying fear
Keep your intent clear, work on yourself, and do not interfere with others
Candles can be used in a very positive and powerful way to set off a vibration in the universe
(see explanation of how they work under the subject Candle work)
Have a Fabulous Day!
Insights by Sandra
Red stick candles bring energy. So it is safe to say that if you flip that candle and light it from the bottom the energy will go away.
The term “flipping a candle” first started with the Gypsies in Brussels. They would do this to not get caught committing a crime (do not use it for that however J).
If you want something to go away , take a red stick candle and cut the top off the candle so that you can properly place it in a candle holder. Cut the wax around the bottom so the wick is exposed. Place the candle upside down in the holder and light the wick you have exposed, releasing all negative energy around you. “Voila”! A good Day.
Flipping red candles with the intent to release negative energy can be done at any time. There is never a bad time to flip a red candle. I sometime do this before any other spell to remove any neg . in the room and try remember to do it whenever having a bad day. Good Luck and Bright Blessings.
