Dark Moon Scrying Spell to Summon Ancestral Spirits

The Dark Moon (New Moon) is a good time to call upon the spirits of loved ones who have crossed through the veil. I wrote this spell about four years ago, and I use it frequently. You will need the following items:

  • 1 Small Black Taper Candle
  • Essential Oils: Dragon’s Blood & Patchouli (Blended w/equal parts)
  • Herbs: Wormwood & Blessed Thistle
  • 1 Black Onyx Crystal
  • Small Round Handheld Mirror
  • Incense: Sandalwood  

Do this spell using natural light only, candlelight is ideal. Light incense and cast the magick circle in your usual way. Anoint the candle with oil, from top to bottom, on all sides. With remaining oil, draw an Earth-Banishing Pentacle on your forehead and inner wrists. Light the black candle and place in holder. Place mirror and crystal in front of candle. Sprinkle herbs around candle, mirror and crystal. The only light source should be from candle flame. Close your eyes, and take several deep breaths until you reach a meditative state, focusing on the ancestor you wish to contact. Allow the image of his/her face appear in your mind’s eye. Hold the mirror in palm of your right hand and speak these words into it:

Through mist and shadow, smoke and flame, In this portal of glass I speak your name. I call forth (state name of ancestor) to communicate with me. As this candle flame burns, so mote it be!”

The mirror is now an open portal of communication until the black candle has burned completely down, or until you extinguish it. Use this time to speak with your ancestor spirits through the mirror. Be open to any impressions, voices or images that may come to you through the mirror, or in your mind’s eye. When the candle has burned out or has been extinguished, scatter the herbs outside, returning them to the Earth. Dispose of the remainder of the black candle. The crystal has been charged with ancestral energy: you may place it on your altar or carry it with you. Save the oil and mirror to re-use at a later time. Write down any information you received, in a journal or Book of Shadows if you keep one.
