Magick and Lunar Phases

The phases of the moon are said to have a definite influence on your magickal purpose, so that it is important to choose the proper type of magick in relationship to that phase. Basically magick can be broken down into two distinct categories, drawing and banishing. During the waxing moon, we generally concentrate on drawing what we want towards us. During the waning moon, we should work towards banishing whatever it is that we want to get rid of.

For instance, if someone becomes ill during the waxing moon, work to draw health to that person rather than banishing the illness. And say, for example, that the situation calls for a money spell during the time of the waning moon, work towards banishing poverty instead of drawing money towards you. So the way it goes is like this: Waxing moon---draw it to you. Waning Moon--banish it from you. Below, I have listed the best times for favorable magick.

New Moon: It's not ucommon for people to feel blue, or out of sorts during the new moon phase. The new moon is a time for cleansing, a time for retreat and meditation. It represents both Crone and Maiden, or the mysterious time when one becomes the other. Some correspondences are the Maiden or Virgin, birth and initation, beginnings, the hunt, Artemis, Lucina, magick for beginnings & growth. Focus on increasing magick. (drawing to you) ---Favorable for new beginnings, love and romance, health, beauty, self-improvement, gardening, job hunting, creative ventures, and financial gain.

Crescent: Focus on increasing magick. (drawing to you)---Favorable for business endeavors, making changes, emotions.

First Quarter: Focus on increasing magick.(drawing to you) ---Favorable for gaining courage, friends, luck and motivation.

Gibbous: Focus on increasing magick. (drawing to you)---Favorable for gaining patience, peace and harmony.

Full Moon: The Full Moon represents the Goddess in her Mother aspect. This is traditionally the time of the month when covens gather to perform magick. Some correspondences are the Mother, growth, fulfillment, abundance, sexuality, maturation, nurturing, love, Diana, magick for celebration or abundance, work requiring strong energy, most other moon magick. Focus on increasing magick. (drawing to you)---Last phase of the increasing cycle. Favorable for matters involving children, resolutions to decision making, projects, artistic endeavors, beauty, health, fitness, change, competition, dreams, families, knowledge, begin or resolve legal undertakings, love, romance, money, motivation, protection, psychic power, and self-improvement.

Waning Moon: The waning moon is the Goddess in her Crone aspect: wise, experienced, and settling into physical decline. After the growing pains of the new moon and the celebration of the full moon, the waning moon is an excellent time to regroup. Some correspondences are the Crone, old age, deep secrets & mysteries, wisdom, divination, prophecy, death & resurrection, endings, Hecate, magick for cleansing, ending or lessening. Focus on decreasing magick. (Banish it from you.) Favorable for eliminating stressful situations, banishing illness, banishing and reducing debt, eliminating or banishing magick period.

Disseminating: Focus on decreasing magick. (Banish it from you.)--- Favorable for banishing addictions, finding answers to painful decisions, eliminating stress, losing weight, ending bad habits, getting rid of debt, banishing emotional blocks and negativity.

Last Quarter: Focus on decreasing magick. (Banish it from you.)--- Favorable for eliminating stressful situations, banishing illness, banishing and reducing debt, contacting spirits of ancestors, losing weight, ending bad habits, banishing emotional blocks and negativity.

Dark Moon: Focus on decreasing magick. (Banish it from you.)--- Favorable for eliminating addictions, removing obstacles, ridding self of things no longer needed or wanted, including debt, extra weight, bad habits, emotional blocks and negativity.

The Blue Moon: Chart of all the Blue Moons until 2020 -- Variable
A Blue Moon occurs when the moon with its 28 day cycle appears twice within the same calendar month, due to the fact that the month has 31 days. Many consider the Blue Moon to be a magickal moon where you may set very specific goals for yourself.

The Black Moon -- Variable
A Black Moon occurs when there are two dark cycles of the moon in any given month. It is believed that the second dark moon is the time of greatest power within the spiritual world and any magick worked during this time is particularly powerful.
