The Blood Moon is a phenomenon in which we experience a moment of union between the Goddess and God. It is a moment of great power and magic that must be experienced with enthusiasm!
Just to make sure what “God and Goddess” mean here. In Modern Witchcraft, the Sun is the representation of the God – and we follow his journey through the year in the Wheel of The Year and the 8 Sabbats. And the Moon is the representation of the Goddess, who is usually called The Triple Goddess because her appearance changes as the Moon phases change.
The term “Blood” is given because of the reddish coloration the Moon obtains. However, it can also be associated with menstruation once it is closely linked to the lunar cycle.
During a Blood Moon, you can cast a spell to attract prosperity and inspiration, so that energy flows like the blood that keeps a living organism alive.

How to cast this Blood Moon Spell
For this Blood Moon Spell you will need:
- Your Chalice;
- Your Athame;
- 4 red candles;
- Red wine (or juice of some red fruit);
- Your favorite incense (optional).
During the Blood Moon night, cast the magic circle and stay in the center of it in a comfortable place for you. Position the 4 red candles so that they represent the 4 directions and the 4 elements.
Light your favorite incense if you wish.
Fill your chalice with wine and dedicate it to the Goddess. Concentrate on the Moon, letting your mind connect with the energy of the moment. Visualize the blood running through your body as you watch the Blood Moon. Feel the heat. Feel the life that runs within yourself.
Stay in this state for the entire passage of the Moon through the Umbra. You can also close your eyes as you feel the power within yourself.
When the Blood Moon returns to normal, that is, when it leaves the Umbra, insert your Athame in the Chalice with wine and visualize the power of God joining the power of the Goddess.
Raise the Chalice and say:
“The strength of the Goddess and the power of God flow within my body as well as my own strength represented in my blood. I am divine and deserve all the energy of prosperity, love and fulfilment in the world. So be it and so be it!”
Drink the wine (or the juice).
Thank the Goddess and God.
Let the candles burn to the end if they are still on.
Release the circle.
