Dark Moon Cleansing for Relationship Renewal

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

You will need:

  • a cup of water
  • cauldron or pot on a trivet or filled with sand or kitty litter
  • parchment paper
  • lighter
  • black candle
  • white candle

Take a ritual bath or shower to get in the proper mindset for this ritual.

Come into sacred space. For this ritual I recommend casting a formal circle and inviting the quarters to join you.

Ask Hecate to join you. Say:

Lady Hecate, dark moon mother,
please join us this dark night
as we seek to release the pain and suffering
of the difficult period.
Please help us to let all this go
that we may be refreshed and renewed.

Charge the cup of water with fresh, clean energy. Imagine a bolt of white light entering the clear water. Say:

This water is charged that it may renew our hearts with purity and joy.

Light the black candle. As it burns, write your troubles, cares, concerns, fears, peeves, angers, and anything else on the parchment paper. Don’t edit, just let it all flow out. Don’t try to write pretty. Write as angrily as you need to.

When you feel that all the energy has been poured into the paper and you can’t think of anything else to write down, light the paper from the candle and drop it in the cauldron. As the paper burns, feel all the negativity float away. All is gone. Know that you are recharged and refreshed. Make sure that everything in the cauldron burns away. Use your lighter to char any remaining scraps of paper.

Pick up the cup of water. Drip a couple drops onto the ashes. Offer each other a drink from the cup saying,

May you be blessed with renewal.

Take hands and couple breathe and eye gaze. As you do so, draw refreshed clean energy in through the tops of your heads until every empty space is filled with new hope, joy, and love. Say,

We are filled with renewed life.

Release Hecate from your circle. Say,

Lady Hecate, dark moon mother,
we thank you for joining us this dark night
and assisting us as we released all that was negative in us.
Thank you for carrying it away that it will not return to us.
We are honored by your presence with us tonight.
Stay if you will, go if you must.
Farewell and blessed be.

Release the circle.

Pour the ashes outside on the earth or into a moving body of water such as a river or ocean.
