New Beginnings Spell for a New Year

As we all take our first steps into a new year, I thought I'd share this spell with you for new beginnings (from my Everyday Witchcraft A-Z Spellbook). May your path lead you only to wonderful things! Happy New Year to you all.

New Beginnings 

Goal: Starting a new endeavor

Optional Extras: Yellow candle, seeds, small pot of soil, water in a decorative pitcher or jar

Notes: This spell can be used to give a boost to a new endeavor (or even a new relationship) or to help you find a new start if you’re not sure what to do next. It can be done at any time, but for an extra boost, try doing it at the new moon.

Focus on what you are starting (or on what you might want to start or achieve, if you aren’t sure), then light the candle and follow the directions in the spell.

[Hold the seeds in your hand]

Bless this new beginning

A gift from the gods

Which I accept with gratitude and appreciation

[Put seeds in soil]

Let it be productive like the earth

And nurtured by the warmth of the sun

[Pour water on seeds]

Let it flow smoothly like the water

And carry me in a positive direction

Like a seed blown on the winds

Bless this new beginning

That it may broaden my horizons

Strengthen and enlighten me

And help my spirit to grow and blossom

So mote it be
