New Moon Depression Banishment Spell

New Moon Depression Banishment Spell 
Thursday was the New Moon and while many witches believe you shouldn't perform magic on the New Moon, I disagree. The New Moon is a wonderful time to cast potent magic, especially banishment and wish spells. The New Moon symbolizes new beginnings so this is a great time to get rid of the old and bring in the new. This spell is focuses on banishing depression. As many of you may be aware, I suffer from severe depression, which is usually why I will post often one week, and not at all the next. I am taking active steps to get better, including setting up an appointment with a counselor, and this spell is just one of those active steps. I am tried of feeling this way. Enough is enough.

New Moon Depression Banishment Spell

What You Will Need
     Black Candle with holder
     Lavender Flowers
     Black Tourmaline

New Moon Depression Banishment Spell
  1. Begin by lighting the charcoal. Allow the charcoal to burn until grey. Add lavender flowers to charcoal. My charcoal looks like a vulva...Ha!
  2. Once lavender is lit, light the black candle.
  3. Close your eyes and repeat as many times as needed (I said this about 10 times):

    "Mother Moon on this night,
    While candle burns flame of white;
    Help me banish this pain I feel,
    As it holds no appeal.

    This Feeling of despair
    Leaves me feeling less than fair.
    Help me emerge from this hole,
    And release the black upon my soul.

    With this candle I cast the darkness out,
    And with lavender light is sought.
    I no longer need this to hold me back,
    And continue to push me off track.

    Mother Moon of this night,
    Please help me to be alright.
    Please stand with me,
    And by my will, so mote it be."

  4. After you feel you have repeated the mantra enough, hold the black tourmaline and envision yourself letting go of the darkness surrounding your heart and soul and visualize it being replaced by the light of peace and joy. Imagine yourself bathing in a pool of cool water and the past washing away.
  5. After you are finished your visualization, take a bath. Again envision your depression washing down the drain, leaving you renewed. Feel free to add bath salts or lavender to enhance the experience.
  6. Allow the candle to burn out on its own and dispose of the wax away from your home.

While this spell alone will not cure depression, it can definitely change your mindset and release many of the negative feelings that are weighting you down. It is important to recognize that magic cannot fix all problems. Seeking medical help is extremely important. If you are having suicidal thoughts, please reach out to someone now. Call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255 for those in the United States. Don't feel like calling? They have an instant messenger option available as well. You are NOT alone in this. 

Blessed be, 


  1. Hey Lady,
    Even though we know one another only virtually, I am really happy and supportive of you for taking these steps. Depression isn't easy, speaking as one who also has it ( and anxiety as a diagnosis.)
    Seeing your journey, using your altar, and seeking the resources you need makes me very happy for you!

    .....And hahaha on your charcoal comment.

    1. Thanks gurl! I have been suffering for about 15 years. I don't want to feel this way anymore and it is beginning to interfere with all aspects of my life. I am losing my drive and very slowly everything is beginning to fall apart at the seams. I'm not living anymore. I have another appointment tomorrow and it is likely I will be referred out for medication. I hope this happens sooner rather than later. Since I am off all summer, I would like to figure try to figure out what works best for me before schools starts back up again.

      Thank you for all your support, as always. And virtual or not, I am thankful for your friendship.

  2. Love this spell and will try it at some point soon.

    Also wanted to let you know that I have come to your blog from time to time and am amazed at your progress. You are always learning and you share that knowledge in such beautifully designed posts! You've become one of my most trusted sources on herb information, and if there's an herb I'm considering using, I cross check it with your research to see if it might be a good fit for what I want to use it for.

    Just thought I should stop lurking and actually voice some support. Keep it up, Willow!

    (PS--What is that contraption you have your charcoal in? I've never seen one before but it looks so useful!)

    1. Thank you so much for reading and your encouragement. I appreciate it! I am so glad I can be of use. =D

      My charcoal is actually burning in an oil warmer I purchased from the Dollar Tree about 2 years ago. I have seen them on an off since then, but it works wonders. I wasn't sure it would be able to withstand the heat, but it has held up surprisingly well and doesn't burn me or my altar in the process!
