Full Moon Prayers - Witchcraft Basics

Last Updated: May 26, 2023

Witches absolutely love a Full Moon. It’s one of our favourite mythologies, archetypes and times of a month – the energy is just different at a Full Moon. It’s a great time to recharge our energy and our tools, it’s perfect for releasing and letting go of what we’ve been working on (spiritually, emotionally or physically) and it’s a great time to celebrate tbh. So when it comes to Full Moons, witches know exactly what to do.

In my other post regarding the New Moon Prayers, we covered across a selection of witches from those normally secular (but use a prayer as part of spellwork for manifestation) to those in a coven or group. On this page you’ll find a variety of new prayers for the Full Moon, so that you can make the most of lunar magick whatever our energy level is.

Saying a magickal prayer at the Full Moon is a lovely, special practice that can incorporate gratitude, intention setting, and even some simple spellwork. Whether you’re a solitary witch working on your own, or part of a coven, here are some beautiful prayers to honour the Full Moon.

Full Moon Prayer for Elemental Witches, Cosmic Witches and Lunar Witches

“Beloved Universe, we stand in awe of your boundless beauty and wisdom, and under this radiant full moon, we gather to commune with your infinite power. With hearts wide open, we offer this prayer, a humble expression of our gratitude and reverence.

Majestic Universe, we look up to the cosmic expanse, a tapestry of celestial wonders. We align our beings with the celestial bodies, planets, and stars, attuning our vibrations to the rhythm of the universe. We embrace the vastness of your cosmic energy, filling us with awe and deep connection. With every breath, we absorb the cosmic knowledge and universal love, empowering us to manifest our desires and purpose. As we gaze into the night sky, remind us that we are made of stardust, intimately connected to the cosmos in a cosmic dance of existence.

Moon, ethereal guardian of the night, we turn our gaze to you. Your gentle radiance touches our hearts and ignites our intuitive powers. As Lunar Witches, we bathe in your luminescence, drawing strength and guidance from your celestial glow. We surrender to the ebb and flow of your cycles, embracing the lessons of release and renewal. In your presence, we seek clarity and illumination, as you reveal hidden truths and awaken our inner magic. Moon, grant us the courage to embrace our shadows and the wisdom to trust our instincts.

In this sacred moment, Universe, we offer our gratitude for the blessings bestowed upon us. We pledge to honor the earth, nurture our cosmic connection, and follow the moon’s guidance. With your divine presence as our guide, we embrace our power, knowing that within us lies the spark of creation. We are witches, guardians of nature and seekers of the mystical. Empowered by your love, we walk our path with grace and purpose.

As this full moon bathes us in its brilliance, may our intentions be heard, amplified, and manifested. May our magick ripple through the threads of existence, weaving a tapestry of love, healing, and transformation. Blessed be, dear Universe, for you are the cosmic canvas upon which our witchcraft dances. And so it is.”

Triple Goddess, we stand before you in reverence,

Seeking your guidance and benevolent presence.

Grant us the strength to embrace all that we are,

The courage to shine our light, both near and far.

Moon, radiant guardian of the night sky, we honor your gentle radiance that illuminates our path. As a Women’s Circle, we celebrate the strength, wisdom, resilience, and beauty that resides within each and every one of us. In this sacred space, we lift each other up, supporting and nurturing the essence of womanhood.

We call upon the ancestral spirits of our mothers, grandmothers, and all the remarkable women who came before us. Their resilience, courage, and love echo within our souls, inspiring us to stand tall and embrace our authentic selves. With every breath we take, we reclaim our power, breaking free from societal expectations and embracing our unique gifts.

Oh, Moon, witness our intentions as they rise to the heavens. May our Women’s Circle be a sanctuary of love, acceptance, and empowerment. Guide us as we explore the depths of our being, heal old wounds, and nurture our dreams. In this sacred bond of sisterhood, may our voices be heard, our stories cherished, and our visions manifest.

We invoke the energy of the divine, nurturing and compassionate, flowing through us like a river. May we celebrate our cycles, embrace our bodies, and honor the inherent strength within us.

As the full moon graces us with its radiant presence, may it infuse our Women’s Circle with its wisdom, grace, and enchantment. May the bonds we forge here deepen, our spirits uplifted, and our collective power amplified. And so, under the moon’s benevolent glow, we stand united, embracing the sacred sisterhood that empowers us all.

Bless this dear Women’s Circle, for the love and strength we find in each other. Together, we create magick, harmony, and a world that honors the divine feminine in all its forms.”

With gratitude and unwavering belief, I call upon the divine forces that guide me. I ask for their assistance in manifesting my dreams and goals. May this full moon amplify my intentions, infusing them with the cosmic energy needed to bring them into reality. I release any doubts or fears that may hinder my progress, and I trust in the universe’s abundant wisdom and support.

As I align my thoughts, emotions, and actions with my desires, may the universe conspire in my favor, aligning circumstances and opportunities that lead me towards my highest purpose. I am open and receptive to the miracles that await me, ready to embrace the abundance and blessings that flow into my life.

With gratitude and love, dear universe, for your infinite potential and the magick that resides within. As I set forth on this journey of manifestation, I do so with love, gratitude, and unwavering faith. And so it is, and so mote it be.”

Full Moon Releasing Prayer

“Under the light of this full moon, I stand with a heart full of courage and a soul ready to release. In this sacred space, I honor the power of letting go and the freedom it brings. With love and compassion, I surrender that which no longer serves me, embracing the transformative energy of this lunar phase.

I release all fears and self-doubt that hold me back from living my fullest potential. I let go of past hurts and resentments, freeing myself from their heavy burden. With each breath, I release negative patterns and limiting beliefs, creating space for growth, joy, and abundance. As I release these old layers, I step into the radiant truth of my authentic self, embracing my worthiness and embracing the beauty of my journey.

Full moon, I trust in your guiding light as I release with grace and ease. I surrender to the natural cycles of life, knowing that in letting go, I make room for new beginnings. I offer my intentions to the universe, asking for support and guidance in this process of release. With an open heart, I allow the gentle flow of healing and transformation to wash over me, restoring balance and harmony in my being.

I am ready to embrace the freedom that comes with releasing and letting go, knowing that I am creating space for the blessings that await me on my path. And so it is.”

As always, I completely recommend that in your personal practice you take from these and reword them to suit your practice, your deities or your coven practice. 

All of these prayers are basic structures to start from, and should be treated as an example – you can totally add a lot of your own flavour to it! 

Enjoy the magick of the Full Moon, and may it bring you clarity, strength and courage in all you do witches. Until next time xox
