If you’re in the US, firecracker stands dot every scenic highway this time of year.
Driving past one of them, I had an idea: why not use them in a ritual?
With 12 (or 13!) Esbats a year, thinking of unique ways to raise power creates novelty and excitement.
Here are some fun ways to include fireworks in the upcoming full moon ritual.
*Please note: Never forget you are dealing with explosives, which are extremely dangerous. Please take all necessary precautions, and try these at your own risk!
Sparklers: This a great way to include the kids! Give one to each of them and tell them to “draw” a wish in the air. Encourage them to be energetic or twirl in circles.
Smoke Bombs: Choose a color that has meaning for your ritual. Light the smoke bomb and place it in a large, firesafe cauldron in the center of the circle. Just make sure it’s a big circle!
Snakes: Use in rituals that feature serpent energies.
Poppers: Write your intention in sidewalk chalk on the concrete and set them off on top of your incantation.
I can think of some more super fun ways to use explosives, but I don’t anyone to blow off a finger! Be safe!
