As the peak in the lunar cycle, the full Moon phase is brimming with potent, magnetic, manifestational energy. Full moon spells have been used for centuries to harness this deeply feminine power, attracting love, money, and protection for those able (and willing) to tap into her magic.

There are SO many spells that can be performed on the night of the full Moon. Yet three powerful spells stand out – spells to attract love, money, and protection. These spells are simple to perform and require only a few basic ingredients, making them perfect for beginners (yet they’re favoured by seasoned spellcasters too!)

So give them a try. And see what kind of magic the full moon can bring into your life…

What is the energy of a full Moon?

The full Moon is a lunar phase occurring at the peak of the lunar cycle when the Sun and Moon are opposing. This creates heightened energy that can influence emotions, intuition, and spiritual connections. People often feel a surge in creativity and inspiration during this time, as a sense of excitement and vibrancy moves through the collective.

The full moon is also associated with the release of negative energy, as from this point onward light and power decrease in alignment with the waning Moon.

Why the Full Moon is a great time for ritual

As the peak in a 28.5-day cycle, the full Moon phase offers a powerful time for ritual and magic. When fully illuminated, the full Moon rises over the eastern horizon, as the Sun sets, casting a captivating glow across the night sky.

Full Moons have long been revered as a symbol of feminine energy, fertility, and magnetism, along with insight and intuition.

Some cultures believed the Moon was an embodiment of the Goddess herself, and could grant wishes and desires for her devotees.

Today, full Moons are appreciated by many modern Spirit seekers who recognize it as the peak in the lunar cycle, and an illuminating and celebratory presence in times of darkness.

A Full Moon Spell for Protection

The full moon is a really powerful time for protection and cleansing spells because this lunar phase amplifies whatever intentions and energy you’re sending out into the Universe.

Also, because the full Moon begins the waning Moon phases, there is a naturally disseminating energy that can be utilised, to let go of things that are no longer serving you, and form protective barriers against them re-entering your life.

Here’s a great ritual you can use for protection, on the upcoming full Moon.

You will need:

  • White candle
  • Black tourmaline crystal
  • Frankincense or sandalwood essential oil
  • A quiet, private outdoor space and the full Moon overhead

Steps to perform the full Moon protection spell:

  1. On the night of the full Moon, take the black tourmaline crystal and visualize the Moon’s energy infusing the crystal with protective power. With the black tourmaline in your hands, focus on feelings of safety and security, and feel a strong barrier of protection forming around you.
  2. Take your candle, and anoint it with frankincense or sandalwood essential oil. As you do, visualize a protective shield surrounding you.
  3. Place the candle in a fireproof holder, and place the black tourmaline somewhere close by. Then as you light it, visualise a connection being made between the candle and the crystal.
  4. Sit quietly in your outdoor space, basking in the moonlight, and continue to focus on your intentions for protection.
  5. Once you feel the energy has been set, extinguish the candle, and place the crystal somewhere safe, in the moonlight to charge overnight.
  6. Collect the crystal in the morning, before the sun rises. Over the next month, keep the black tourmaline with you or in your home to maintain the protective energy.
