This technique is designed to draw upon lunar energy or astral energy, with which to empower a spell or to work magic. It can also be used for psychic development and meditation. In Strega practice, drawing down the moon is not the same as invoking the Goddess. The first act is connecting with the Moon, while the second is connecting with the Goddess. The Moon and the Goddess are not the same, although they are difficult to separate.
Drawing down the Moon
Sit quietly and visualise the Full Moon above you. Mentally bring the moon down to each of your body centres, visualising each one glowing with the moon’s light. Concentrate on each centre for at least a minute before moving on to the next.
Drawing and Raising Power
Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and imagine a white sphere of light about 5 inches above your head. Imagine it flowing down through your head, neck, shoulders, chest, arms and so on. Let this energy flow through every inch of you. Let it completely saturate the inside and cover the outside. Imagine your entire being is glowing. At this point, you are in touch with power, and you may proceed with healing and other works of magic.
