Tonight, while the Moon is covered with that dusky-burgundy shadow, work for transformation and to increase psychic abilities. To honor the lunar eclipse, light two small tapers, one white and the other burgundy or dusky brown. Sit and meditate on changes you'd like. Repeat this spell as the eclipse begins.
As the Goddess pulls her soft cloak across the face of the Moon,
I light a dark and white candle to bring transformation soon.
As the eclipse shows all the lunar phases so bright,
May my psychic talents be seen in a whole new light.
Once the spell is spoken, go find a good spot to watch one of nature's finest shows. Allow candles to burn in a safe place until they go out. --- Ellen Dugan
