Full Moon Magic — a Weight Loss Spell to Flush the Fat
Weight Loss Spell
As I write this in January, and 'tis the season of dieting. The over-indulgent feeding frenzy of the holiday season is over, the decorations are (or soon will be) put away in their boxes and life goes back to normal. We get to thinking about the New Year’s Resolutions we've made (or wish that we made)—for most people that includes losing weight. Weight loss is one of the most common resolutions people make— though statistics show a lot of people have already given up by now. Hey—the year is young! Just because you didn't run out of the gate without stumbling doesn't mean the race is over.
Now that I think about it, every season seems to be losing weight season-- as spring approaches we want to get our swimsuit bodies back, in the fall we want to take off those summer pounds. It never ends!
If you're looking for a weight loss spell, every month you have another chance. The full moon is the perfect timing to cast a spell for losing weight!

A Secret You Need to Know Before Casting
Let’s say there was a big pile of bricks in your yard, and they were completely useless to you. You want to get rid of them by putting the by the curb where the trash or someone in need of bricks might pick them up.
Imagine trying to pick up the entire, towering pile of bricks all at once. It would be ridiculous, right? Naturally the best way for you to move the bricks would be one at a time. Yes, it would take a bit longer, and it would still take effort—but it’s something you can actually accomplish.
People generally want to learn Witchcraft to bring changes to their lives. Sometimes they try spells and get very discouraged that they didn’t get the desired results. They might cast a weight loss spell to lose all their excess pounds, then get angry that it fails. This is equivalent to trying to move a whole pile of bricks at once.
The secret to losing weight with Witchcraft is the same secret for moving a pile of bricks: instead of trying to do it all in one go, do it in increments.
Diet Spell Preparation
On Wednesday, the day of the full moon, it’s a good idea to fast to prepare for this spell and your weight loss efforts.Only go on a full fast if you’re in great health and are up to the task. The point is not to make yourself sick, but to detox a bit.
Most people can get by with a light fast. It’s ideal if you just have a liquid diet for the day—natural juices, herbal teas (avoid sugar, but honey or stevia is okay), and vegetable broth.
If you need something with a little more substance for the day, eat a light salad with veggies and just a squirt of lemon juice, or a tiny splash of vinegar and olive oil.
What You Need to Cast Spell
What You Need
A new roll of toilet paper
Yes, I'm serious
A pomegranite or lime
As an offering
Usual ritual tools/supplies for esbats
Casting the Spell
Bring the toilet paper to your esbat altar (and please watch it around any candles or incense!). If you’re not doing a full blown esbat, you can bring it to your shrine or whatever working altar you wish to set up. If you don’t have a shrine or altar at all, just go somewhere quiet and comfortable with it—such as by a window that overlooks the moon, or go sit outside in a natural area where you have some privacy (yes, you can put the toilet paper in a bag; no one has to know).
When you’re at the point of ritual in which you’re ready to cast, or when you’re ready to begin the spell, follow these steps:
- Cleanse and consecrate the roll of toilet paper.
- Relax and put your focus in the moment. Take a few deep breaths and then get into a rhythmic
- Invoke the Goddess Venus. If you like, you can use the ancient Orphic Hymns— click here for the 18th century English translation.
- Tell Venus of your need to lose weight and ask for her assistance.
- Meditate and visualize yourself at your goal weight. If you prefer guided meditations, try the one below
- Hold the toilet paper and charge it with your intent to lose weight. Ask for Venus’ blessings upon it (yes, once again, I am serious).
- Make an offering to Venus and thank Her.
Congratulations—your toilet paper roll is now charged with your purpose and ready for you to use.

How to Lose Weight with This Spell
This toilet paper's purpose is going to be different from any other roll's purpose, so make sure you put it in a safe place. Stash it in a bag under the counter, in a cosmetic case or somewhere no one else will get to it. If you live with people and don't want to risk someone grabbing it, put it away in a bedroom drawer or closet.
Take one square of toilet paper and write on it "one pound". Visualize yourself thinner like you did in your original meditation.
Flush the toilet paper to rid yourself of that pound you don’t want. As the single square gets sucked down the drain, imagine your fat – one ‘brick’ at a time – leaving you. Then focus for the next few days on losing that pound.
After you've lost that pound, when you're ready, do it again to lose another pound. And again to lose another pound. It may be little by little, but eventually it mounts up. Work your weight loss magic until you reach your goal weight.
