WORKING WITH THE MOON

New Moon 1st Quarter: This energy can be used for starting new projects of all kinds including business ventures and jobs. It is also used for spells involving self growth and moving forward on your path.

Waxing Moon: 2nd Quarter - This is the time of beginnings, health and healing, fertility, psychic awareness, beauty. The time from the New Moon through the first quarter to the Full Moon is the proper time to perform healing rituals, positive magick, and spells that increase love, good luck, growth of any kind, sexual desire, and wealth.

Full Moon 3rd Quarter - Protection, Love, Healing Purification, Money, Travel and psychic awareness. The period of the Full Moon increases the powers of extrasensory perception, and is the proper time to perform lunar goddess invocations, fertility rites, transformations, spirit conjurations, and spells that increase psychic abilities and prophetic dreams. The Full moon holds great power and energy and is the strongest time of the month to perform magickal workings. It is a great time for performing divinations or for working magick to increase magickal power. The Full Moon means energy is heightened for any magickal work you would like to do.. especially work in psychic areas. Full Moon magik can be conjured during the 3 days prior to the rise of the Full Moon, the night of the Full Moon and during the 3 days after.

Waning Moon: 4th Quarter - Banishments of habits, addictions, disease and negatives. Jealousy, guilt and hurts are released. Between the full moon and the dark moon is the period of WANING moon. This energy can be used for banishing and rejecting those things that influence us in a negative way. Negative emotions, diseases, ailments, can all be let go. We can do work to get rid of money problems,(rather than increasing money we are banishing poverty or financial problems). This is the time to get rid of unwanted things... good for weight loss, bad habits, negative energy or people in our lives.

Dark Moon: Void Of Course -The Dark Moon period occurs 3 days prior to the New Moon. This is the time when you can't see the moon. No magik is usually performed during this time. This is the time go within and use meditation and a time of quiet contemplation thinking about where you are on your path and where you are going,... what do you want to accomplish and create in your life... time to think and replenish your own energies.

Lunar Eclipse A Lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes into the Earth's shadow. This type of eclipse does not occur every year. But when it does, it's a wonderful and magikal night. When it does occur it lasts for only a few hours, so you need to plan your rituals well in advance. This one night is perfect for all purposes.
