As the moon disappears from the summer night sky, we now experience the Dark Moon. Now is a time for stillness, contemplation, divination, and banishment. Tonight's Dark Moon in Leo marks the halfway point between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox. As Mercury goes direct tonight, the next 48 hours will feel as though you are running out of time. Goals, tasks, and life itself will feel as though it is slipping through your fingers. The tension and anxiety around the world is quite palpable right now. The current accident-prone energies will subside the morning of August 3rd.
Wise Witches know what they want. And just as important, they know exactly what (and who!) they are ready to walk away from.
When a pesky ex-lover keeps reappearing and causing problems, use this ritual to cut all romantic ties and release anchoring energies.
This ritual does not harm the person in any way, it simply makes sure they are no longer in your life. May also be used on various soured relationships, including friendships.
Best Time to Perform:
When a friend or family member is struggling with sickness, emotional turmoil, or an unpleasant life situation, use this Sacred Power Blessing Ritual to surround them with energies of strength, and love. This ritual goes beyond "sending positive vibes," as the recipient will instinctually feel the presence of your energy and the newfound resonance of your blessing. This can be the catapult for your loved one to make real change and real progress in their lives.
Alternatively, this Sacred Power Blessing Ritual may be performed on yourself and can be customized based on the exact situation at hand - see notes below.
Best Time to Perform
This spell is best performed three nights in a row, leading up to the Full Moon. If, however, you feel the situation is urgent, don't delay and do not wait for the proper moon phase!

Question: "I would love to know your thoughts on performing magick during Mercury Retrograde. Is it true that spellwork performed during this period is guaranteed to fail/will backfire on you? What about performing love spells during this time?" -Melanie, Lubbock, TX
Witch Responds: To cut to the chase: NO, it is absolutely not true.
Retrogrades are a normal and, of course, perfectly natural occurrence. At almost all moments of the year, one or more planets are in retrograde. Mercury has simply been in the pop culture spotlight because of how strongly it impacts technology, communication and travel. Of course, these things we always notice in our modern daily lives.
