Simple Beginners Full Moon Spell

Posted by Christopher Coe on


  • A white candle
  • A small dish or bowl
  • A pen or marker
  • A piece of paper
  • A lighter or matches


  1. Choose a quiet and comfortable space where you can perform the spell without interruptions. Ideally, you would perform this spell outdoors under the light of the full moon, but if that's not possible, find a window with a clear view of the moon.

  2. Begin by lighting the white candle. White candles symbolize purity and clarity, making them ideal for full moon spells.

  3. Take the piece of paper and write down any negative or limiting beliefs, fears, or obstacles that you wish to release. Write freely and honestly, expressing all your thoughts and emotions.

  4. Once you have written down everything you want to let go of, fold the paper and place it in the dish or bowl. This dish will act as a container for the energy you want to release.

  5. Hold the dish with both hands and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths, inhaling deeply through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. Allow yourself to relax and become present in the moment.

  6. Visualize the full moon's radiant light shining down on you, enveloping you in its glow. Feel the moon's energy filling your body and mind, washing away any negativity or blockages.

  7. When you feel connected to the moon's energy, light the piece of paper with the candle flame and carefully place it in the dish. As it burns, imagine all the negative energy and obstacles being transformed and released into the universe.

  8. As you watch the paper burn, repeat the following affirmation or create your own: "By the light of this full moon, I release all that no longer serves me. I let go of fear, doubt, and negativity. I am open to receive the blessings of the universe. So mote it be."

  9. Allow the paper to burn completely in the dish. Be mindful of fire safety and ensure you have a fire-safe surface to place the dish on.

  10. Once the ashes have cooled, you can bury them in the earth or scatter them to the wind, symbolizing the final release of the energy you wished to let go of.

  11. Take a moment to express gratitude for the full moon's energy and the opportunity to release what no longer serves you. Blow out the candle and conclude the spell.

Remember, spells are personal expressions of intention, and it's essential to believe in the power of your own words and actions. Stay open to the changes you desire and trust that the universe will support you in your journey.
