Even Nature Takes Some R & R!

As the winter solstice approaches, nature reminds us it is important to take time to rest and restore. I invite you to do the same as 2018 comes to an end. Nourish your body, allow your mind to daydream, and revitalize the spirit with family, friends, and loads of natural beauty! I'll be doing the same for the remainder of the year, so comment approval and email replies will be delayed. I appreciate your patience as I take time to replenish the 'ol creative wells (because I've been busy working on MANY new and exciting things coming your way in 2019, so get ready!).

Wishing you all a comfy and cozy, fuzzy-sock-wearing, soul-healing, snowman-building, chocolate-covered kind of Yuletide season! Love and blessings to each and every one of you! 🎄

Full Moon Dream Drop Wishing Well



Several months ago, I released my first book: By the Light of the Moon: 13 Simple & Affordable Pagan Spells & Rituals for a Year of Full Moon Celebrations.

You've probably heard me mention it a time or fifteen, mostly because it's what allows me to keep the blog financially alive. At the time of the release, I had a post detailing the contents of the book along with a few sneak peek photos.

But now the time has come, my friends. The time where I give you a sneak peek spell! Because, come on, what Pagan doesn't love themselves a good sneak peek spell?

Without further delay, go to nature and get to casting, my witchy friend! 




Full Moon Dream Drop Wishing Well
Approximate Hands-on Time: 20 minutes


When I was a child, I fantasized about having a wishing well in my backyard. Even the wooden wishing wells used as gardening accessories made me long for a well of my very own, convinced they were the gateway to a magickal realm just beyond my well-less grasp. Oh, how I yearned to be able to reach between the circular stone walls and draw my fingers across the mirror-like surface of the cool earth water, just like Snow White. Birds would gather ‘round, and we’d sing together and sew dresses and such. Yup, if I had me a well, life would be good!

Of course, as a kid I also wished I was a pilgrim and a whale. I was a very strange little child.

As an adult, I still desire a well, though it has a lot more to do with water bills than helpful chipmunks. Yet no witch can deny the mystical enticement of a well, especially the pretty ones with cool pails on a pulley. My inner child yearns to creep out on a moonlit night (dressed in a long velvet cloak, of course) to cast and conjure in the darkness, binding my spell by tossing pebbles into the water. I would listen carefully through the sound of rustling leaves and croaking frogs for the telltale splash that confirms my spell has begun, magick has been woven, my arcane wishes have been granted.

So, my fair ladies and lads, I invite you to satisfy your own well wishes (did you see what I did there? Double entendres are fun!) with your own personal Full Moon Dream Drop Wishing Well.

What You’ll Need:

-A jar or bowl, preferably clear
-Water
-4-6 small rocks or pebbles
-A permanent marker (Sharpie works best)

How to Conjure:

★Using the marker, write an aspiration on each rock, preferably one or two words each. For example: Abundance, happiness, health, new job, healthy relationship, new home, etc.

★Fill the jar or bowl with water. Take the jar and your wishing stones outside or by a moonlit window.

★Sit quietly for a moment (preferably in the grass or soil) and center yourself.

★One by one, carefully drop each wishing stone into the jar as you envision the assigned word coming to fruition. For example, if you’re casting for happiness, picture all the simple pleasures that make you happy as you release the stone into the water. If you’re casting for health, imagine yourself in tip-top shape, stretching and moving without any pain or illness.

★Once each wishing stone has been released into the water, hold the jar or bowl in your hands and say:

Water, Moon, Earth, and Night,
Bring forth the visions I’ve conjured in sight.
Water by ocean, by snow, and by rain,
This spell has been cast, these wishes attained.

★Leave the jar outside overnight or on a moonlit windowsill. In the morning, pull the stones from the water and allow to dry. Return the water to the earth. If desired, you may keep your wishing stones with you until your spell manifests. Otherwise, place them in a safe place and know the Goddess has heard your moon wishes!

    1. Yes! There is actually a window of full moon energy that begins the day before a full moon and continues through the day after a full moon. I consider it nature's grace period. ;)

  5. Hello! I'm new with everything so my knowledge is limit. This is my first time in this blog and I read the comment about the moon water, can the moon water be from the full moon of any time of the year or have to be specific? and can you recommend me something for beginners ? I'm not sure if all the information that I've been found is reliable. Thank you, and I'm going to try this full moon wishing spell.

    1. You can create full moon water any time of year (during a full moon, of course! =D). When you've completed a spell, you can dispose of the water in the garden or yard. Unless it's a banishing spell, then dispose of the water outside of your property.

      If you're looking for a good beginners book, look into Scott Cunningham. He has several, insightful beginner's books. Hope that helps! =D

  6. another question. Can I use the water on the yard afterwards? or is better if I leave it on the grass?
    Thank you
