It is easier for some to measure life in cycles rather than time. Sometimes, what the clock says, or the calendar, just doesn't feel right. Take the seasons for that matter, the Gregorian calendar we follow sets the start of spring around March 20th. In my neck of the woods (Minnesota) we can still have feet of snow and blizzard warnings happening. It surely doesn't feel like spring! But there is this wonderful shift in the air when the wind blows a little warmer and the lakes begin to thaw at the edges, which signifies spring to me.
The moon, however, is a steady constant. Her cycle follows a steady rhythm that we can watch at every stage (cloud cover permitting). The energy of the moon follows a steady pattern as well and it is this pattern that many pagans plan their magick around
Moon Phases & Magick
Each phase of the moon draws different energies and vibrations for us to use. Each phase can be linked to its own specific spell or ritual, or you can begin a working that requires time to build or diminish that follows through many phases. It all depends on what you need.
Dark/New Moon- New Beginnings
Waxing Moon- Set Intentions
Full Moon- Harvest Endeavors
Waning Moon- Release & Surrender
There are even more steps in breaking down moon magick. There are phases with the waxing and waning with more specific correspondences if you truly want the best boost for your power. Here is a link to a further breakdown.
I hope this guide helps you use the cycles of the moon to better your magickal workings. Is there anything special you do when practicing moon magick?
We also have a Moon Magick PDF available if you are looking for a printable list of the energies held within each phase.
