“There is only one dogma in Magic, and it is this: The visible is the manifestation of the invisible, or in other terms, the perfect word, in things appreciable and visible, bears an exact proportion to the things which are inappreciable by our senses and unseen by our eyes.”

Connection to others is the glue that holds ALL relationships together. In every partnership, we create psychic cords that bind us. These cords are invisible energetic forces that fetter us to another. Whether it be a lover, boss, family member, coworker, or friend—we are energetically and emotionally attached. At one point, or another, we may encounter issues with others, which may lead us to feel blocked or dark thoughts associated with the person. It’s also quite possible you may have “grey” thoughts—both positive and negative emotions.
The Virgo Full Moon, occurring March 1st, serves as a reminder to see through the flaws of relationships and an opportunity to optimize and materialize healthier alliances with others. Full Moons are a great time to balance energy within ourselves and others—as we let go of the past and pull in new sentiments. Using both polarities will help us manifest the best version of any relationship by harmonizing the opposing energies.
Using a simple Kabalistic ritual and the clarity of the Full Moon, let’s open ourselves up to new possibilities, by finding balance and harmonizing with the four elements of existence (fire, earth, air, water), while using the 7 human attributes (Sefirot) of the 10 attributes/emanations on the Tree of Life in Kabbalah to guide us to our divine happiness through our own spiritual views and mysticism.
The 7 human attributes, listed on the Tree of Life, consist of two pairs of opposite attributes that thrive when they are in a healthy balance and 3 attributes that are energized and shine when the connecting attributes are balanced and flowing freely:
Discernment Loving Kindness
Instead of closing the door on future hopes, it’s important to always be open to new possibilities—healthy situations that we created. We can grow and nurture our dreams, relationships, and all important matters in our world. With these techniques you can manifest truest and purest personal wisdom, while relinquishing the self from the shackles of past trauma. As you release negative thought patterns, blocked emotions, and energetic drains you will feel lighter and open to newness and personal transformation.
Red wool string
Bowl of salt water
Place lavender all round a clean room to reinvigorate and revitalize the energy.
put on soft tunes to center yourself. After several deep breaths, close your eyes and visualize the white protective light around you. Visualize a sword in your hand. As you wave the sword around, meditate on the person(s) with whom you wish to transform with. As you imagine cutting the invisible cords, verbally express how you feel—what you want to change, how do you wish to move forward? When you are finished thank them for the lessons they have taught you and say you release the past and want to move forward to a more enlightened state in the relationship. You may decide you do not wish to continue the existing partnership, which is fine too.
Wrap red wool string around your left wrist (the left is the spiritual side of our body) 7 times to honor the earthy attributes, as you meditate and visualize your goals. You will receive protection from the universe as you rid yourself of falsities and deceit imposed upon you, warding off the “evil eye” from others.
Apply salt water to purify your base and sacral chakra. Gently rub salt water on your stomach and upper thighs to detox your body of stored negativity.
Write a letter to yourself declaring your intention for each relationship that you wish to evolve. Using the methodology from The Tree of Life, make a three column list in your letter. Using the 7 earthly attainable attributes:
Find a middle ground in between to balance out the energy within ourselves, write a word to describe what you identify as the middle between these extremes. Once you are finished, bury your letter in the soil of a potted plant, which will help you create relationships and the life you wish.
