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.
Kabbalah can be spelled in different ways. The spelling does not matter, but the knowledge and understanding of the Kabbalah do matter.
The picture above illustrates the Tree of Life. I imagine the demonic shells right behind the Sephiroth.
It is easier for me to understand the Qabalah and its magick if I allow myself to imagine my own models.
Kabbalah and magick: planning the spells
When I plan out my spells, I take into account several factors. The primary factor is of course the moon and its phases.
I also consider the Qabalistic correspondences for each Sephira or Qlipha, but for casual spells with demons I look into the Goetia to determine the nature of the demon.
There are a couple of pages in Goetia and there you will find information about metals for seals.
Then I know for example that the seals of Haures and Bune have to be made from copper. Copper is the metal matched to Netzach.
Having this information is enough, because then we will know that Haures and Bune are summoned during Fridays, and their paper seals can be green, etc.
We will also be wise if we summon these two demons during the astrological hour of Venus. But that is not enough, because the moon may be off its path in the sky.
There are 14 mansions (areas in the sky map) and the moon travels through these 14 mansions during its 28 day cycle.
When the moon travels from one mansion into the next, it can be off its path just for a certain period of time. This period can be as short as one hour and as long as several hours.
If we do our spells during these “bad” hours when the moon is in a negative mode of movement, we may obtain zero results or the spells may backfire on us. The results of such spells may look like a cosmic joke.
To be on the safe side I always consult the Lunarium. You will have to change the settings of the Lunarium to obtain the exact interval of the moon’s “void period” displayed for your city.
