February’s Full Moon Rite for Blessing & Consecrating Your Tools
February's Full Moon Rite for Blessing & Consecrating Your Tools
February’s moon has many names Ice Moon, Storm Moon, Horning Moon, Hunger Moon, Wild Moon, Red and Cleansing Moon, Quickening Moon, and Big Winter Moon.
In the moon of February it is appropriate to work magic for purification, consecration, healing, growth, responsibility, forgiveness, love of yourself and new plans.
Tonight I bring forth the tools that I wish to have blessed and consecrated for my magickal work ahead. Strengthen their power, strengthen their purpose and let them always meet my needs and serve my purpose.
Tool Consecration and Blessing:
Supplies needed: These are all items that are normally on the altar table for most rituals anyway, but if you don’t use them on a regular basis, here is a list.
* Sea salt in a small bowl
* Water in a small bowl (as pure as possible)
* Sage or incense
* Athame or sword
* Tool or tools you wish blessed & consecrated
If you are just starting out, you may even want to consecrate the altar table itself.
Consecrate and cleanse the circle with sage or incense.
Consecrate and cleanse the circle with salt and water.
Take your athame or sword and Cast the circle around the outside of the circle. –
Call the quarters.
Earth: I call to the solid, cold and frozen ground under my feet. As you awaken from your long winter’s nap. I acknowledge your strength during this awakening season and ask you to join now in the consecrating and blessing of my ritual tool. Welcome to the realm of Earth!
Water: I call to the waters that surround me; the seas and the rivers that flow out into the sea. I understand your strength in this realm, you nourish me with your flowing waters and provide the Earth with much needed moisture and sustance. I ask that you come forth and join me in consecrating & blessing of my tool. Welcome to the realm of Water!
Sky: I call to the Sky above my head, the clear fresh air and the crisp breeze at Springtime. O imderstand that without you no winds would blow and I would not be able to survive with your breath of fresh air daily. I ask that you come forth and join me in consecrating and blessing of my tool this evening. Welcome to the Realm of Wind!
Ancestors: You are our ancestors. It is your gentle feet that have stood on this ground, who have walked this earth before me. You lived, worked and played here and I acknowledge your presence now. Hail and Welcome!
Spirit of Place: Welcome, Spirit of this place. It is your rivers that flow through this green place, into the sea. Your energy that fills the harbors and allows the ships to sail. I feel your strength and your spirit. Hail and Welcome!
Sit comfortably in your the circle before your altar.
Choose the tool you wish to bless. Take the tool in your hands. Raise it to the sky.
Great Goddess bless this tool(you can insert the type of tool you want blessed)
That it may be used for good and never harm
That it may help me in my craft
And aid me in my magickal work
From this day forward
May it be blessed and consecrated
By the power of Earth [sprinkle with salt]
By the power of Air [waft with feather, incense or sage]
By the power of Fire [pass over candle or through flame if fireproof]
And by the power of Water [sprinkle with water]
And by the power of the Spirit which lies within us all
So Mote It Be
After your tool is consecrated & blessed, take a moment of silence, and visualize using them in future rituals with powerful results.
If you have prepared yourself Cakes and Ale now is the time to partake of them.
It has now come to the time of my rite when I must say goodbye or bid farewell to all those who have been called to this time and place.
Spirit of Place, I thank you for being with me today in this rite, now go if you must but stay if you will, I bid you Hail and Farewell!
Ancestors, You, who are my ancestors, and have walked this earth before me. It is your gentle feet that have stood on this ground. In the past you lived, worked and played and I thank you for your presence here today, go if you must but stay if you can, I bid you hail and farewell!
Sky, I call with thanks to the Realm of Sky for attending my rite now go if you must but stay if you will, I bid you Hail and Farewell Sky!
Sea, I call with thanks to the Realm of Sea for attending my rite now go if you must but stay if you will, I bid you Hail and Farewell Sky!
Earth, I call with thanks to the Realm of Earth for attending my rite now go if you must but stay if you will, I bid you Hail and Farewell Earth!
Now walk around the outside of the circle with your staff and bells, come back into the circle and say:
May the circle be open, yet unbroken, may the love of the Goddess be always in my hearts, merry meet and merry part and merry meet again.
The circle is now open, go in peace.
