Tonight, the August full moon, sometimes called the Grain Moon, will illuminate the sky. This moon will rise above an earth that is ripe and ready to be harvested. Decorate your altar with the bounty of the season. A vase of zinnias or blackeyed Susans would be nice. A few stems of grain and some ears of corn would also be appropriate.
Tonight’s ritual should be about giving thanks. Safely light a gold pillar candle on your altar. Meditate about the good things in your life. On a sheet of stationery, write a sentence or two about one thing you are grateful for. Let the candle burn for a few minutes, then extinguish it. Leave the stationery on your altar for three days, then discard it. Use the candle again for thankfulness or wealth spells. Expect other good things to come your way. The divine appreciates your gratitude.
