May Full Moon Butterfly Transformation Spell

May Full Moon Butterfly Transformation Spell

May Full Moon Butterfly Transformation Spell

The Butterfly is a creature of transformation. The first part of its life is spent as a caterpillar that then creates a cocoon for itself to hide away in while fantastic changes take place. 

What does this have to do with the May Full Moon? Well, it just so happens that, in many places, May is the month in which many species of butterfly emerge to reveal the result of this magnificent metamorphosis…and I thought they were the perfect symbol for us to look to as we embark upon our own.

May also brings with it themes of commitment & consummation. In many traditions, Beltane (May 1st) symbolizes the union of the God & Goddess which blesses the earth with abounding love & beauty through their commitment to one another, and to us.

But what exactly does it mean to “consummate” something? The word itself means “to bring to a state of perfection, to complete by a pledge or signing of a contract” as well as “to complete the union of a marriage through sexual intercourse”. In other words, it is the act by which we “seal the deal”.

Whether we honor deities or simply wish to further our own personal growth, there is an opportunity to deepen our commitment to them and/or to the betterment of the Earth, its inhabitants, and ourselves through a consummation of our own.

What You’ll Need for the Butterfly Transformation Spell:

- Candle & Fire Safe Receptacle (if you are outside and have the means to have a safe outdoor fire, that would also be fantastic)

- Piece of paper with an image of a butterfly on it (I’ve included one if you want to save it and print it or to use it as a guide to draw your own)

- Pen, pencil, marker, quill - whaevs, just make sure it writes

- A piece of garnet, citrine, or pyrite (or anything that represents commitment to you)

- A piece of candy (or other small goodie to eat)

Before You Begin the Butterfly Transformation Spell:

Gather all of the things you need and read through the whole post so you've got an idea of what you're doing ahead of time.

Set up your space, and double check that you have all that you need. Feel free to play some "mood music" if you like.

If casting a circle is part of your personal practice, go right ahead and do so when you are ready to begin. Also, feel free to add your deities in place of “The Universe”

Performing the Butterfly Transformation Spell:

Sit for a moment and think about what things you would like to transform. Whether those things are something personal, professional, or societal is entirely up to you. Which ones do you feel are most important? Which do you think you'll need help with?

Before you write your desired changes and wishes on your butterflies, I would like you to read something; it’s a poem I came across about the process of Transformation. Take a few deep breathes, and hold your item of commitment in your hands while you read…

Transformation by Meg Goodmanson

It will not always feel good,

This growing.

This stretching beyond the boundaries of the known,

The comfortable.

It will not always feel safe,

This learning and relearning of your own abilities

This reexamining of beliefs

This pushing of envelopes

This breaking through enclosing walls.

You will shiver.

You will doubt.

You will want to run home.

Back behind walls of safety.

This walk to the edge will not

Feel good, safe, or comfortable,

But there is no faster way to learn.

There is no other way to grow.

So step out.

Leave your home base

Your comfort zone

Your cocoon

Acknowledge the fear and discomfort

But step out all the same.

With each step you take,

Your world expands

Your caterpillar mind will

Strain to comprehend the unbounded vastness of the sky.

Step out.


Unfurl your wings.


When you’re done reading, light your candle, pick up your candy/goodie and the stone/item you’ve chosen to represent commitment and say:

I partake of this offering to consummate my union with The Universe and to facilitate my personal metamorphosis. 

I shall honor this union by Being the Changes I wish to see in myself and the world around me.  

Eat your chosen yummy.

Now, write the changes you wish to facilitate in yourself and/or in our world throughout the coming year on your butterfly paper and say the spell.

Recite Spell Three Times:

I call upon the ancient force

To set me on my proper course

To transformation I now submit

To deed and action I now commit

‘Til again this moon doth rise

Positive change shall rule the skies

Light your paper butterfly from the candle and drop it into your fire safe receptacle (or toss it into the fire if outdoors), thereby releasing it to carry your wishes up and out to the The Universe.

Butterfly Transformation Spell Follow Up:

In the coming days take some time to sit upon the Earth and connect with Her while holding your “Stone of Commitment”…commitment to purpose, to others, and to oneself.  Think about and meditate on how these changes you’ve committed to can be put into motion. 

You may wish to journal about your thoughts and/or what you experience throughout this process of transformation. You could also create an idea board or even start a binder to keep your ideas in. 

However you choose to document your endeavors, remember to keep your mind open to all the magnificent possibilities that are waiting for you. There may be set-backs, and there will more than likely be dark days here and there…but they are all part of the process. TRUST THE PROCESS!

Even the butterfly has to spend some time in the dark before it gets to emerge and unfurl its wings. But, it does emerge…it does unfurl them…and so will you…and you will Fly.

Until Next Time, Pixilators
