SCORPIO FULL MOON 2019 – SERVITOR CREATION & FEEDING YOUR DEMONS
Saturday, May 18th brings the Full Moon in Scorpio. This Full Moon is considered a Seasonal Blue Moon, as it is the fourth Full Moon following the Equinox.
Traditionally, the Scorpio Full Moon is considered one of the most powerful for releasing, cleansing, and transforming your life. This is because Scorpio is the in the 8th house and ruled by Pluto. This is attributed to sex, death, rebirth, and spiritual transformation. Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
A Full Moon ceremony offers a chance to release what is no longer serving you but it is also a great time to empower and manifest with the intensity of the power of the Full Moon’s properties. Pluto also rules transformation, inner alchemy, and the shadow parts of yourself. Some may term the shadow attributes to demons or negative qualities of yourself. Because the full moon falls on a Saturday, the day of the week is ruled by Saturn. What makes planetary rulings of a sun sign, moon sign, day, or even hour, you can use this information to plan what types of workings are appropriate in connection with the energy and element that it is ruled by. With this particular information, I know that it is a great day to work with clearing, banishings, working with ancestors, underworldly aspects and spirits of magick.
Using Planetary Magick
In this ceremony we are working with the attributes of the Moon, Pluto and Saturn together. But to get a better understanding of Planetary Magick and which planet rules each day and what types of work is beneficial on that day, I have included a list below. Also each zodiac sign and hour is also ruled by a sign and planet. You can also do ceremonies in certain hours and certain days to get added benefits or combine influences from multiple planetary energies together.
Planetary magick is a complex system which blends astrology, ancient cosmology, and celestial intelligences in an attempt to bring the most effective results. The names of the days of the week still reflect their planetary rulers.
Sunday (The Sun)
Bright, life-giving, and magnanimous, the Sun is the largest heavenly body in sight. Therefore, Sunday is the day for your biggest, boldest spells. Active change, wealth, hope, popularity, health, charisma and vitality fall under the sway of Solar magick. The first day of the week is also the day of bright beginnings. Call upon fresh, Solar light to scrub out the corners of a stale situation and bring renewed energy. Grow in confidence and leadership. Bring clarity and simplicity to difficult problems. Make affirmations. Begin projects.
Monday (The Moon)
Ruled by the moon, Monday is a powerful but unreliable day for spellwork. It is the day of introspection, illusion, and fantasy, the day when the astral plane is said to lie closest to the Earth plane. Monday is the perfect day to do scrying, trance work, or dream journeying. Spells of love and fertility may be performed on Monday, especially if the moon phase is a right. Because the Moon rules the tides, Monday is the best day for Water magick of all kinds. Create traveler’s amulets. Anoint and cleanse magickal tools. Commune with spirits. Reflect and renew the spirit.
On Tuesday, warlike Mars will see that you’re justified in your nitty-gritty magicks. This is the day for breaking out the nastier spells when the nice one just didn’t work. Sowing strife, if you’re so inclined, will be most effective on a Tuesday. Also, charms of aggression, ambition, lust, and sexual potency. Activate protective talismans. Reverse hexes and psychic attack. Cultivate personal strength. Prevail in fights or games of skill.
Wednesday is named for Wotan (Odin), closest Norse equivalent to the fleet-footed Roman god. Adaptable Mercury rules learning, luck, travel, and trade, so Wednesday is good for workings on any of these matters. Improve communication. Increase focus and alertness. Prosper in business or games of chance. Make or consecrate money-drawing charms. Wednesday is also a fine day for divination, especially using cards, runes, or lots.
Beneficent Jupiter rules the night sky, and he is the go-to planet for petitions of power and luck. Thursday is a great day to craft spells for good fortune, health, and prosperity. (Mercury brings quick cash, but Jupiter governs the long term accumulation and preservation of wealth.) Thursday is considered an auspicious day to sign contracts and acquire property. Do spells related to justice and authority. Visualize future success. Create protective and restorative charms. Bless friends, family, and home.
Friday is ruled by Venus, and that can only mean one thing: Love magick! Friday is the traditional day to do love-drawing magic, or cast a spell to bring your lover closer. Besides sexual attraction, spells of friendship, sympathy, reconciliation and self-love fall under Friday’s love-magick heading. Because Venus is closely connected to the natural world, it’s also a good day to harvest plants and herbs for magical uses. Also on Friday: Do mirror magick. Make baths, potions, and tinctures. Weave glamours and enchantments. Craft workings for pleasure, enjoyment, and intoxication.
The final day of the week is ruled by Saturn, lord of endings. Saturn has a reputation as an inauspicious day for magick – but of course, it depends on the type of magick. There is no better day for spells of binding and banishing. Saturday is also a good day for Underworld magick, communing with ancestors and contacting spirits. (The Key of Solomon specifies that Saturday is the day of spirits who died a natural death – those who died heroically should be honored on Tuesday.) The energy of Saturn helps to cultivate patience and wisdom. Recover from grief. Overcome addictions. Cast protective wards. Sever unhealthy bonds. Visit elders or reflect on the past.
Each day may be further divided into planetary hours. Each hour of the day may be ruled by the same or a different planet from the one that rules the day. (For example, Sunday begins on the hour of the Sun, but the second hour of the day is attributed to Venus.) You can use planetary hours in different ways. Sometimes, you might want the day and hour to match. (Doing a working during the hour of Jupiter on a Thursday, for instance, in order to get the strongest influence of Jupiter.) Or you can mix ‘n match them for more a more specialized influence. To calculate the hour on a specific day to figure out the best time to do the work you can use an planetary hours calculator – this one uses glyphs for each planet so you may want to use the first calculator if you are just getting started and aren’t acquainted with the glyphs.
The Grunt Work
Since the energy surrounding the days before and after the full moon are in harmony or affected by the full moon, you can do some of the grunt work required for this working on those days but with the ritual culminating on the full moon. You can keep in the planetary energy of Pluto and Saturn by working on the project in the hours that are ruled by these planets. For this lunar ritual we are going to be focusing on removing the things that hold us back and do not serve us; that are in the form of personifications of our emotions or energies that manifest as demons or negative entities. Since we are working with Scorpio and Pluto’s energy we want to focus more transformation.
Instead of simply destroying or banishing these emotions or feelings, we are going to transform the energy through alchemy into energy that we can harvest and recycle into something better for the self. We are going to practice the art of feeding our demons the energy or thoughts that we don’t want to have resonate or surface inside of us. There are a few methods to doing this. You can interact with and feed your existing demon through an Eastern practice (the technique is linked) or you can create a servitor to work with just for this purpose. So to begin this journey you will need to do some soul searching and determine which qualities that you find within yourself or the reactions and emotions that stem from these interactions in life, that you consider are holding you back or a negative aspect of oneself. These can also be feelings that come to the surface when you are interacting with others and you do not like the affect that they have on you. Instead of wasting your energy on the other person or inflicting pain upon yourself, you can feed the energy of this interaction to your demons instead.
Creating a Servitor
The idea of this intention is to create a servitor or entity that acts as an interface or handler with an exact purpose of maintaining and transforming this energy for you into something more worthwhile and fruitful to your psyche and energy body. A servitor is a spirit much like an angel or demon but the difference is that YOU make the spirit you give it it’s form, it’s purpose, powers and determine is food source and it’s death.
Types of servitors:
There’s three “types” of servitors
- Constant servitor: a servitor spirit that is constantly there and constantly working i.e. a servitor of protection.
- The “one and done” servitor: this servitor does one job and one job only this task isn’t reoccurring so once it’s complete the servitor fades away i.e. a servitor designed to find you love
- The “only when you need it” servitor: similar to the “one and done” servitor except it’s task is repeated on a regular basis the time not active it’s hibernating.
Ultimately servitors are thought forms created by your will and desire they are molded in your mind and the ether until you choose to “bring them to life” there’s several methods and books detailing how to do this and how to make a servitor ultimately you need to do your research and figure out which method works for you. Servitors are actual spirits they are real and capable of changing your world. Treat them as real they will have the greatest impact and manipulate the physical world. Treat them as imaginary or psychological they will only effect you mentally.
If you don’t know how to create a servitor you can read through some servitor creation articles or books on servitor creation. You will have to create this entity first to handle this energy for you. Then in the future each time that these emotions or feelings surface they can be consumed by the servitor and the servitor will work in the astral plane to manifest and transform the energy into positive influence for a goal or intention that you have created for yourself. You will have to determine which qualities and reactions that don’t benefit you and write them down in your journal or book of shadows. The second part is creating the servitor’s purpose and function and what qualities for the better that you would like transformed in its place.
You will need to create the servitor, give it a home, decide what it lives off of, what it looks like, give it a name, how to call or summon it, and it’s purpose. But the most important thing is intention – the mental labor of creating this entity. I am providing a template to help you create your servitor from scratch – you can download and edit it in documents on Google Drive if you don’t have word processing software. All of this must be done before you can actually put it into service. You will need to do all of this work before the full moon and physically call the servitor into being and give it it’s directives on the night of the full moon. If you have any questions or require any assistance in this endeavor, my door is open.
