New Moon…scratch that…Sun magic abundance spell.
Every new moon for as long as I can remember I have worked a ‘new moon abundance cheque’ spell.
Out come green candles for prosperity and orange candles for success. Along with corresponding herbs for abundance and money (whatever I feel drawn to use) and often a dab or two of oil blend as well. Today I used fenugreek and lemon grass herbs and cedar oil with a few dabs of five finger oil to get things moving.
A cheque is written, you can print abundance cheques from the internet. I write in green pen to add some prosperity colour magic. A cheque made out to myself to bring money in for the coming month and a thank you to the Universe for doing so.
I draw pentagrams on the back of the cheque and fold it towards me to bring money in. I sprinkle it and the candles with oil and herbs.
The cheque is then placed in a spell box and covered with more herbs and often a crystal or two. The box then lives on my altar for the rest of the month until I burn it before starting the new spell again.
Working with the new moon energy draws abundance and prosperity to you, so it is something I have always worked with.
Having worked a lot in the past couple of years with sun magic, I realised that it would boost the abundance cheque spell to add in some solar energy. Why had I not thought of this before? I work solar spells all the time!
So, today was a little different. I still wrote out my cheque and used herbs and oils. But I set my spell out so that the sunlight could fall upon it. It was actually really warm outside so I sat in my conservatory with the spell on a table in front of the window. I also worked the spell at 9am so that the solar energy was building up, bringing magic to me.
At the end of the spell when the cheque was safely folded into its box, I felt drawn to pop the candle stubs into the cauldron and leave them out in the full sun to melt. Often, I leave candles to burn out or I bury them, but as I had been working with solar energy it felt right to leave them for the sun to melt and meld them together. I will collect the cauldron once the sun goes down and bury the melted remains.
