Yes. Take a few deep breaths, ground yourself and center, cast a circle, Look at the full moon, in your mind connect the moon with the energy of your God and Goddess, then hold your arms up and link your hands so that you can see the moon in a triangle made by your index fingers linked and your thumbs touching one another. As you watch the moon, think of your will and emotions working together, close your eyes for a moment, let that feeling well up inside of you, then open your eyes, and ask Spirit for a wish, nothing silly, something serious, Thank Spirit, put your arms down and breath deeply, ground and center yourself, release the circle, go get something to eat, it helps ground you even more. There are many ways to draw down the moon, some people use wands, and staffs, or crystals, there is no end to the creativity of this ritual, but above all, try to feel the power, in and around you, and illuminate yourself with the divine spirit, feel it, taste it, remember you are drawing your request into reality. Have fun, hope this helps you. Rilke.

Drawing down the moon is one of the most common practices for most magical practitioners. As Rike has stated there are many different ways to gather the moons energy. When I draw down the moon I prefer to be bare foot and in the grass. I get down on my left knee and place my elbows on my right knee. Then I make a chalice with my hands by placing the undersides of my wrists together and cupping my hands upward. I place the moon inside my hand chalice and think about my cup running over ;) When I feel the energy spilling over my hands and down my arms I stand up and raise my hands over my head while still holding the chalice position. Then I concentrate on my objective for a bit. As I hold my thoughts I then open my arms and bow as if doing a sun salutation. This acts as a libation to the earth of the moons energy. After I like to eat a small amount of fruit or nuts. Eating a lot after practicing magic is not the best idea since it can cause you to ground too quickly.
