Full Moon in Aries…Let’s Open some Roads!

Tonight’s full moon is in the sign of Aries. It comes a little earlier than usual this year.  Often we find an Aries full moon in October but with the two full moons in August things are a little out of order this year and we’ll see a Taurus full moon in October.  The Aries full moon is a great time for spells involving power, rebirth, authority, and increasing our will power.  One thing I love doing during an Aries full moon is Road Opener work.  So let’s look at a few general Aries full moon details and then I’ll share one of my Road Opener candle spells and Road Opener recipes.

Here’s a spell and some Road Opener recipes that are perfect for working to get over blockages and things that are currently standing in your way as you work toward a specific goal.

There’s a quick note that I wanted to share about the recipes.  Traditionally the herb Abre Camino (Eupatorium villosum) is used in Road Opener recipes, but it can be a bit hard to find.  It’s native to the Caribbean and places with a tropical climate like in the southern parts of the US.  It’s an endangered plant so many people will substitute it with Quassia Bark, but this isn’t the same herb despite some people’s insistence that it is.  I’ve used both and found that Quassia Bark works fine if you can’t get Abre Camino.  In these recipes below I’ve included Quassia Bark but if you can find Abre Camino you can make a substitution with it.

Road Opener Oil
4 drops Lemongrass
4 drops Citronella
2 drops Camphor
a pinch each of Five Finger Grass, Sea Salt, Lemon Peel, Quassia Bark

Blend in 2 tablespoons olive oil

Road Opener Powder
1 teaspoon Lemongrass
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Quassia Bark
7 drops Road Opener Oil
3 tablespoons cornstarch

Grind the herbs in a grinder to a powder.  Mix in the cornstarch a tablesooon at a time.  Add a few drops of oil to the powder with each tablespoon of cornstarch and blend well until all ingredients are well combined.

Road Opener Incense
Equal Parts:
Lemongrass
Pine needles
Five Finger Grass
A few Cinnamon Chips
3-9 drops of Sage Oil (depending on how much herb you’ve used)
Road Opener Spell
You’ll Need:
Orange taper candle
Parchment Square and Pen
Citrine stone
Knife
Cauldron
Orange spell bag or fabric
Road Opener Oil
Road Opener Powder
Road Opener Incense

Use the knife to section the candle into seven equal parts.

Anoint the candle with Road Opener Oil, praying that all blocks and negative energy that are holding you back be released.

On your parchment square write down the specific blocks that are holding you back from reaching your goal.  If you don’t know what specifically is holding you back you can just say “All blocks and obstacles”.  Fold the paper in half away from you.

Light your incense on your altar or work space.  Place the candle in the center of the your space.  Place the cauldron behind the candle.  Use the Road Opener Powder to draw two lines from you to the candle on the altar, creating a mini road {ideally this should be wide enough to hold your paper and your Citrine stone}.

In the center of the road, halfway between the start of the road and the candle, place your parchment.  At the beginning of the road place your stone.

Light your candle and say:

As this candle lights my path I pray
That obstacles and blocks shall fall away.
Opportunities and luck shall being to flow
As I walk down this open road.

Move our stone one “step” forward on your road and visualize yourself getting closer to your goal without difficulty.

Let the candle burn down one section.

Each day for the next six days burn down one section of the candle, reciting the incantation as you light the candle, and moving your candle one step forward.  Around the middle of the spell you’ll reach your parchment; place the Citrine on top of the paper on that day and then on the next day you’ll move it past the parchment, signifying being past all your blocks and obstacles.

On the last day of your spell light the candle, say the incantation, and move the Citrine to be right in front of the candle.  Pick up your parchment square and light in the flame of the candle and as it burns toss it in the cauldron to burn up.  Take the ashes outside and toss to the winds.

When the candle burns out take any left over wax, the stone, some of the powder and a bit of the incense and place in an orange spell bag or square of fabric.  Tie up and carry to help you keep the road opening energy going.

OMG I'm blown away by the accuracy of the reading. Jess has a special gift. What she revealed to me, opened me up to a place I knew I should be at but was holding myself back from.

I was so overwhelmed trying to get back into my witchcraft practice, but Jess helped me create an actual plan and a schedule for doing the work. The results in just two months has been far beyond my expectations. I'm in touch with my power like never before!

Jess is a great teacher, as well as an insightful reading and a wonderful healer. Her lessons are informative and easy to understand. Her cards speak to her in a way that I hope mine will to me one day. I have also had a Chakra session and a Reiki session with her and afterward I felt at peace, balanced, and whole again (I was quite sick at the time). I trust very few people, and I follow my path alone, but I trust Jess. She’s a beautiful spirit.

When I started coaching with Jess I thought I was coming to her for help with a breakup and an unexpected and sudden international move. It turned out that wasn't the real issue at all! Jess asked questions I never would have thought to ask myself and gave me a whole new perspective on what was going on in my life. She made me feel like what I want matters. By the time we were done I felt like I could take on the world!
