We cast new moon spells for increase. As women and wombs are key Cancer concerns, we cast this Cancer new moon spell to increase Women’s Power, personal & collective. Women can and will restore the womb rights the Supreme Court has just erased.
For this spell, you’ll need a basin large enough for your feet, 2 cups of milk (or a milk substitute; water is fine), and a small towel.
Read through the spell once or twice. New moon spells are best performed when the new moon is in the sky above—so that means from within an hour or so after sunrise until an hour or so after sunset.
Begin—when ready—by imagining a beautiful three-dimensional circle, drawn with an invisible hand, three feet above, below, all around you. Say:
I enter this zone of non-distraction
To ready myself for spiritual action.
Great Goddess Moon, who steadied the Earth
For billions of years, weaving the tides
Where life first appeared, you rule the womb,
Not them. Hear me as I seethe and burn.
Fill me with the power to unturn
The Extreme Court folly that fouls your
Goddess land of milk & honey.
Six in black robes have overturned Roe,
Stealing our rights away.
“Here Pre-Borns are protected,” they say.
“Until you’re born—then be warned—
You’re on your own.
Violence is encouraged here.
Guns have more rights than people.
We’ll divide this land because we can.
Controlling women isn’t evil.”
Now pour the milk into your basin, as you say:
Mother Moon, embolden me, even if
I’m sad, I’m scared, I’m angry. I know
Your kind & loving nectar
Will fill me and my sisters
With fierce, formidable power.
Settle your feet into the basin of milk. Recite the following at least three times while washing hands and feet with the Great Mother’s milk.
Oh, Great Goddess,
Empower my feet
Empower my hands
Don’t let us stop
Till we change this land.
(We’ll seal the spell with a potent gesture of self-soothing. You can dry your hands and feet first or wait till the circle is closed.)
Bring your hands up to your face and with eyes closed, drop your head into your hands’ soothing, supportive embrace. Relax. Feel the energy of your hands pouring into your face. Imagine this is the Goddess’ nectar, filling you with power from head to toe. Visualize or sense this. Once you feel capable and strong, open your eyes and say:
Protecting women is right and true.
I’m fierce & formidable thanks to you,
Great Mother, who since the beginning of time,
Has kept this spinning Earth in line.
Sealed in the love between you and me,
I cast this spell. So shall it be.
Dissolve your three-dimensional circle.
Vote for representatives who will enact the laws that can protect women’s reproductive rights from the dark hands of courts & state legislatures.
You can cast this spell solo or in community. You can use real ingredients or imagined ones. If you’re an activist, I recommend repeating this spell at every new moon.
