Full Moon Ritual
You will need:
A cauldron (or dish with a dark inside) half filled with water
A small silver coin
Cast the circle:
Maiden cast this circle white
Free from shadow, pure and light

Cast any negativity from our head

This circle is now cast unbroken.

Invocation to Deity:
I call upon Yemaya, Goddess of the seas, join this rite today and bring with you feminine energy and healing. Blessings and welcome!
The full moon
The full moon is a powerful time; she carries with her magic to aid in immediate need, power boosts, courage, psychic protection and healing. This moon phase can also bring urgently needed money, commitment, justice and ambition.
Sit quietly in front of your cauldron of water and drop a silver coin into the water, if you can position the cauldron so that the moonlight reflects into it even better. You can gather the moon’s energy by skimming your hand just across the top of the water.
Say a chant to the Goddess and the full moon asking for enough money to cover your needs. Visualise the goal.
Leave the water and the coin in the cauldron until the following day when you can tip the water into the earth.

Uncast the circle, walking widdershins:
This circle is open but never broken.
