The three phases of the Moon – a guide for beginners


 

The phases of the moon play a very important role in the practice of Witchcraft.

 

 


The 3 phases of the Moon

 

Magick is done during three moon phases:

the waxing moon

the full moon and

the waning moon

No magick is done when the moon is dark or when it is invisible in the sky. This is because there is no Witch power in our subconscious minds during this time.

So, what can you do during the time when the moon is dark? You can meditate and relax.

But if your situation calls for doing magick, because something is very urgent, then do magick.

 


The waxing moon

 

The period starting from the time when the moon is newborn and ending with the full moon is called the waxing moon.

During this time the moon grows in size and becomes larger with each passing day.

Do magick to attract things towards you: money and jobs, love and sex, new friends, knowledge and success.

Healing spells can also be done during the waxing moon.

 


The full moon

 

The day or the night of the full moon is the most powerful time for doing magick.

Very complex situations can be solved by means of magick during the full moon.

But be aware, that complex issues demand more than one ritual and sometimes magick is done during several months to improve a very bad life situation.

The period that starts 5 days before the full moon day and ends 5 days after the full moon day is also a very powerful time for doing magick.

This 10 day period is divided into 2 smaller periods:

 

# The period that starts 5 days before the full moon day and ends during the full moon. Do magick to attract things and events to you. Deal with very complex situations to solve them.

# The period that starts during the full moon and ends 5 days later. Do magick to banish trouble and poverty, get rid of relationships that drain your power, and banish and curse enemies and to protect yourself. You can also do healing spells.

 


The waning moon

 

The period that starts from the day of the full moon and ends with the dark moon is called for the waning moon.

Magick is done mainly for the purpose of getting rid of the unwanted from our lives.

You can banish enemies and even curse them during the whole waning moon.

Healing spells to heal depressions and to heal the body are done during the full moon and also during the waning moon.

Protection spells are done during the waning moon too. Witch bottles are created during the full moon and also during the waning moon.

You can create a very powerful Witch bottle just 2 days before the moon becomes totally dark and disappears from the sky.
