Hints for Success Spellcasting



Success in spellcrafting, as with any art, comes from practice and patience.
Medieval monks didn’t learn to brew world-renowned beverages overnight, nor did
da Vinci create a masterpiece without making some mistakes. So, be patient with
yourself in honing your magical arts and follow these suggestions to help get
over the rough spots:

Bring as many of your senses into the magical procedure as possible to clarify
and delineate its purpose(s).

Always visualize your intentions in detail while you work.

Repeat spells whenever you feel the need. Each reiteration provides supportive
energy for manifestation.

Phrase the verbal component to be geared toward your specific intentions.

If you are uncomfortable with vocalizing spells, you can mentally recite them
just as effectively. Remember, thoughts are words uttered inwardly.

Eliminate, substitute, or augment any prop/focal you desire.

Be certain to maintain the congruity of meaning.

Use the timing as a guideline, not as an edict. Any time is the right time for

Make notes of your successes and failures. These memos will prove immensely
helpful in the future.

It is not necessary to use all the props and focals listed in devising your
spell. In fact, trying to do so would probably make the spell unmanageable
(unless you have three hands). Choose only those items that intimately sym-
bolize your goals, and that you feel are necessary to the spell’s construction.

Let’s Talk Witch – Warnings and Cautions For The New Wiccan or Witch c. 2014


Let’s Talk Witch – Warnings & Cautions For The New Wiccan or Witch

If you’ve looked at this site at all, you’ve seen the wonderful things that happen when you begin following a Wiccan path. I’ve been asked to discuss the not-so-nice things that can happen. I’m not trying to scare anyone off, just give you enough information so you can make an informed decision.

The Shadows are out there:

They exist, in the invisible world that parallels our own, living creatures. Unlike creatures from our world, they lack physical form, and feed on energy instead of matter. They are as varied as the animal life on our world. They range in size (power) from the equivalent of insects and rodents to the equivalent of magically trained humans, and beyond to the Great Old Ones. (My land is inhabited by one of these-it gives the psychic impression of a mountain with legs. It is not unfriendly, but an elephant is not unfriendly toward ants either. I stay out of our woods when it is about.) I mentioned that these creatures feed on energy. Most are content to graze on the random energy fields that leak from humans and other creatures in our world. Others, however, are a little more sinister. These, the ones you have to worry about, I call the Shadows.

Shadows come in three basic varieties. First are the little ones that feed off the energy in negative emotions. If you are emitting strong negativity, they will be drawn to you like flies to rotten meat. If you aren’t magically protected, they will happily latch onto your energy field (aura) and snack on it. They are usually not much more troublesome than leeches or mosquitoes; however, a thousand leeches could weaken a person severely.

Next come the more dangerous variety, more like rats or vultures than mosquitoes. These are attracted both by negative emotions and the energy of magical workings. They are stronger, and can push past weak or flawed defenses to get to you. And they are much harder to peel loose once they have their teeth into you.

Last are the intelligent variety. Their favorite meal is human life energy, the ‘heart-fire’ that burns in each of us. They are relatively rare even in their own realm, but they exist. The terms ‘Imp’ , ‘Evil Spirit’ and ‘Demon’ are fairly accurate. They are very strong. The more intelligent ones are capable of working their own Magic to breach your defenses. The most intelligent variety , being as lazy as humans, prefer to talk you into dropping your defenses and linking your energy field to theirs. (“Open yourself to me, and I will grant you power beyond your wildest dreams.” Yeah, right.) They also are capable (if someone is helpful enough to open a doorway for them) of entering our world. Once here, if they can get past all your defenses unless you are very strong at warding. They can enter your body and feast at will, even asserting a degree of control over you. Yes, this is exactly like the old stories of Demon possession.

You – yes, you can be a Vampire:

There exist in this world evil creatures. They are highly intelligent, capable of working magic, and extremely devious. They are capable of not only psychic magical attacks, but physical ones as well. As a species, they tend to be amoral, murderous animals. I call them ‘humans’. Humans are also capable of ‘feeding’ off the energies of other humans- Herne (owner of this website) calls them “Psychic Vampires”. They do this to gain more magical power, to control others, or to replace the energies they are losing by dealing with the Shadows. Some humans can even do this while traveling astrally. So that Evil Spirit that tried to get into your last circle may not have been from the other side; it could have been your next-door neighbor.

Oops! Did I just do that?

Magic is an art form. Despite the best efforts of Ritual Magicians and Technopagans, it remains as unpredictable and powerful as the weather unless you are highly skilled and focused. Scientists studying weather prediction in the 1970’s discovered something amazing. Weather, they found, is so unstable as to be impossible to predict more than a day or two in advance. In fact, computer models suggested something they called the Butterfly Theory. It seems that the air disturbed by a butterfly taking off from a cactus in Mexico, if it happened at the right time and place, could in theory cause devastating storms and tornadoes in the U.S. Midwest. Magic is very similar. Each action we take, magical or mundane, has consequences that spread out from it like the ripples in a pond.

They spread out, touching everything- and reflect back to converge on the source. Be very sure, then, before you work magic, exactly what the consequences may be. Ask yourself, “If this spell backfires on me, and affects me instead of the intended target, can I live with the result?” Thus, I tend to use magic “only in direst need, and then must the cause be just” (author unknown).

Some Wiccans counsel about how rain on your fields could cause drought elsewhere. This might be true, if you are trying with your own personal power to ‘squeeze’ the rain clouds as they pass over. But asking the Lady and Lord for the blessing of rain for everybody’s crops is a different thing entirely. Selfish magic has negative consequences: Loving, giving magic only positive ones. For Selfishness is the true root of all evil. “I want it! Destroy the world, let Chaos take the universe, as long as I get what I want!” Be careful of what you ask, you just may get it…

Power corrupts:

So, you’ve studied hard, learned all about Wiccan magic, and now you find you can really do things. All the power of the Elements is yours to command. Love, money, power, respect- all these are yours. You are special. You are powerful. You are a God! Now, you must convince others to worship you, to lend you their energy so that your power can grow. But that’s OK, because you are a loving God, and you want only what’s best for your worshipers. And you know what’s best for them, for you know all, and see all. For you alone are God of this world you have created.

Can’t happen? Do the names Jim Jones, Sun Myung Moon or David Koresh ring a bell? It is important to remember that the gift of magical power is just that- a gift from the Lady and Lord. It must never be abused. And glorifying yourself because of something lent to you is like showing up at your class reunion in a borrowed suit and a rented Jaguar. This reason and this reason alone is why you will not find the Council of this site posting or trading spells and rituals. We don’t hand out loaded guns here.

Spell for Today – Compelling Bracelet

This spell should only be done by an experienced witch. Remember what you send out the Universe has a way of returning it to you through Karma or the Threefold Law.

Before you can get your way, you may have to encourage someone to come closer. This charm both beckon and produces cooperation. There is a sexual aspect too this spell, which is not contained, despite their name, in all domination spells. It may also be adjusted for use as a binding spell.

  1. Obtain a little hair from the person you intend this spell for.

  2. Soak the strands in Command and Compel Oil. (You could also make an infusion by pouring boiling water over sweet flag and licorice and soak the hair in this instead.)

  3. Add one drop of essential oil of bergamot and one drop of essential oil of vetiver.

  4. Let the hair dry out.

  5. Braid it together with a strand of your own hair.

  6. Knot them together, ideally creating nine knots. (If this isn’t possible, the hair isn’t long enough, wrap red or black thread around the braid and the nine knots in this instead). Murmur your desires into the hair while knotting.

  7. Make this charm into a bracelet, supplementing with red and/or black thread for additional length, if necessary. Wear this bracelet on your right wrist, if you’re right-handed, your left one, if that’s the dominant hand. Constantly, consciously will the spell’s target to come to you and fulfill your desires.

A Thought for Today

Mysterious 12-Sided Roman Object Found in Belgium May Have Been Used for Magical Rituals

A metal detectorist in Belgium has unearthed a fragment of a mysterious bronze artifact known as a Roman dodecahedron that is thought to be more than 1,600 years old.

More than a hundred of the puzzling objects — hollow, 12-sided geometric shells of cast metal about the size of baseballs, with large holes in each face and studs at each corner — have been discovered in Northern Europe over the past 200 years. But no one knows why or how they were used.

“There have been several hypotheses for it — some kind of a calendar, an instrument for land measurement, a scepter, etcetera — but none of them is satisfying,” Guido Creemers , a curator at the Gallo-Roman Museum in Tongeren, Belgium, told Live Science in an email. “We rather think it has something to do with non-official activities like sorcery, fortune-telling and so on.”

Creemers and his colleagues at the Gallo-Roman Museum were given the fragment by its finder and identified it in December. It consists of only one corner of the object with a single corner stud, but it is unmistakably part of a dodecahedron that originally measured just over 2 inches (5 centimeters) across.

Metal detectorist and amateur archaeologist Patrick Schuermans had found the fragment months earlier in a plowed field near the small town of …

Basic Principles and Concepts of Wicca c. 2014

Basic Principles and Concepts of Wicca

By , About.com


There’s an old saying that if you ask any ten Wiccans about their religion, you’ll get at least fifteen different answers. That’s not far from the truth, because with nearly half a million Americans practicing Wicca today, there are dozens — perhaps even hundreds — of different Wiccan groups out there. There is no one governing body over Wicca, nor is there a “Bible” that lays down a universal set of guidelines. While specifics vary from one tradition to the next, there are actually a few ideals and beliefs common to nearly all modern Wiccan groups.

Do keep in mind that this article is primarily focused on Wiccan traditions, rather than on the principles of non-Wiccan Pagan belief systems. Not all Pagans are Wiccans, and not all Pagan traditions have the same set of principles as the core beliefs of modern Wicca.

Origins of Wicca:

Wicca as a religion was introduced by Gerald Gardner in the 1950s. Gardner’s tradition was oathbound, initiatory, and secret. However, after a few years splinter groups began forming, and new traditions were formed. Today, many Wiccan groups owe their basic foundation to the principles laid out by Gardner. Wicca is not an ancient religion, but Gardner did incorporate some old esoteric knowledge into his original tradition, including Eastern mysticism, Kabballah, and British legend.

Who Is a Wiccan, and How Do You Find Them?:

Wiccans come from all walks of life. They are doctors and nurses, teachers and soccer moms, writers and firefighters, waitresses and computer programmers. In other words, anyone can be Wiccan, and people become Wiccan for many reasons. In fact, there are nearly half a million Wiccans in the United States today. As to where to find them, that might take a bit of digging — as a mystery religion that doesn’t proselytize or actively recruit, it can sometimes be difficult to find a group in your area. Never fear, though — the Wiccans are out there, and if you ask around enough, you’ll bump into one eventually.

Calling Upon the Divine:

Wicca acknowledges the polarity of the Divine, which means that both the male and female deities are often honored. A Wiccan may honor simply a non-specific god and goddess, or they may choose to worship specific deities of their tradition, whether it be Isis and Osiris, Cerridwen and Herne, or Apollo and Athena. In Gardnerian Wicca, the true names of the gods are revealed only to initiated members, and are kept secret from anyone outside the tradition.

Initiation and Degree Systems:

In most Wiccan covens, there is some form of initiation and a degree system. Initiation is a symbolic rebirth, in which the initiant dedicates themselves to the gods of their tradition. Typically, only an individual who has attained the rank of Third Degree dedicant may act as a High Priest or High Priestess. Study is required before an individual may advance to the next degree level, and often this is the traditional “year and a day” period.

Someone who is not a member of a coven or formal group may choose to perform a self-dedication ritual to pledge themselves to the gods of their path.

Magic Happens:

The belief in and use of magic and spellwork is nearly universal within Wicca. This is because for most Wiccans, there’s nothing supernatural about magic at all — it’s the harnessing and redirection of natural energy to effect change in the world around us. In Wicca, magic is simply another skill set or tool. Most Wiccans do use specific tools in spellcrafting, such as an athame, wand, herbs, crystals, and candles. Magical workings are often performed within a sacred circle. The use of magic is not limited only to the priesthood — anyone can craft and perform a spell with a little bit of practice.

The Spirit World is Out There:

Because the concept of an afterlife of some sort is typical in most branches of Wicca, there is a general willingness to accept interaction with the spirit world. Seances and contact with the unknown are not uncommon among Wiccans, although not all Wiccans actively seek communication with the dead. Divination such as tarot, runes, and astrology are often used as well.

What Wicca Isn’t:

Wicca does not embrace the concepts of sin, heaven or hell, the evils of sex or nudity, confession, Satanism, animal sacrifice, or the inferiority of women. Wicca is not a fashion statement, and you do not have to dress a certain way to be a “real Wiccan.”

Basic Beliefs of Wicca:

While not exclusive to every single tradition, the following are some of the core tenets found in most Wiccan systems:

  • The Divine is present in nature, and so nature should be honored and respected. Everything from animals and plants to trees and rocks are elements of the sacred. You’ll find that many practicing Wiccans are passionate about the environment.
  • The idea of karma and an afterlife is a valid one. What we do in this lifetime will be revisited upon us in the next. Part of this idea of a cosmic payback system is echoed in the Law of Threefold Return.
  • Our ancestors should be spoken of with honor. Because it’s not considered out of the ordinary to commune with the spirit world, many Wiccans feel that their ancestors are watching over them at all times.
  • The Divine has polarity — both male and female. In most paths of Wicca, both a god and goddess are honored.
  • The Divine is present in all of us. We are all sacred beings, and interaction with the gods is not limited just to the priesthood or a select group of individuals.
  • Holidays are based on the turning of the earth and the cycle of the seasons. In Wicca, eight major Sabbats are celebrated, as well as monthly Esbats.
  • Everyone is responsible for their own actions. Personal responsiblity is the key. Whether magical or mundane, one must be willing to accept the consquences — either good or bad — of their behaviour.
  • Harm none, or something like it. While there are a few different interpretation of what actually constitutes harm, most Wiccans follow the concept that no harm should intentionally be done to another individual.
  • Respect the beliefs of others. There’s no Recruiting Club in Wicca, and the Wiccans are not out to preach at you, convert you, or prosetylize. Wiccan groups recognize that each individual must find their spiritual path on their own, without coercion. While a Wiccan may honor different gods than you do, they will always respect your right to believe differently.


Spell for Today – Concentrate Candle

Concentrate Candle Spell

Items needed:

1 small white candle
1 small blue candle
1 orange candle

Take all three candles and place them on a fire-proof surface in front of you. Light both candles. Take three deep breaths. Lightly tap your forehead with one of your fingers for a minute or so. You should feel a slight tingly sensation on your forehead. Now, look at the three candles and say this chant three times:

“I have the time.
I have the wait.
This should help me concentrate.
When it’s white And it’s blue,
It will start my mind a new.”

After you have finished, blow out the candles. From this point on, when you have problems concentrating, think of those white, blue, and orange candles, and the tingle in your forehead; and your mind should be better able to concentrate.

Seven of Rainbows – Minor Arcana


I. The Explanation of Seven of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot

Seven of Rainbows Osho Zen reminds us somehow now is a time that requires vigilance, patience, and waiting. There will be times when all you have to do is wait. The seed has been planted, the baby is growing in the womb, the oyster is coating the grain of sand and making it into a pearl.

The woman in the picture here is in that state. Contented, with no trace of anxiety, she is simply waiting. Through the phases of the moon passing overhead, she remains patient, which is so in tune with the rhythms of the moon that she has almost become one with it.

She knows now is the time to be passive, let nature do its thing. But she is not sleepy or does not seem to care; she knows that this is the time to prepare for something important. This is a mysterious time, like the moment before dawn. This is when the only thing to do is wait.

II. The Energy of Seven of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

We have forgotten how to wait; it is almost an abandoned space. And it is our greatest treasure to be able to wait for the right moment. The whole existence waits for the right moment. Even trees know it – when it is time to bring the flowers and when it is time to let go of all the leaves and stand naked against the sky.

They are still beautiful in that nakedness, waiting for the new foliage with great trust that the old has gone, and the new will soon be coming, and the new leaves will start growing. We have forgotten to wait, we want everything in a hurry. It is a great loss to humanity… In silence and waiting something inside you goes on growing – your authentic being. And one day it jumps and becomes a flame, and your whole personality is shattered; you are a new man. And this new man knows what ceremony is, this new man knows life’s eternal juices.


King of Rainbows – Minor Arcana Court Card


I. The Explanation of King of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot

This Dynosius-like figure is a man who is a “Zorba Buddha” who drinks wine, dances on the beach, and sings in the rain while enjoying the depths of understanding and wisdom that belong to the sage. He holds a lotus flower in one hand, showing that he respects and contains within himself the grace of the feminine. His exposed chest (wide-open heart) and relaxed stomach indicate that he is also comfortable with his masculine as well, extremely liberal.

The four elements of earth, fire, water, and air all converge on King of Rainbows Osho Zen, who is sitting on the book of the wisdom of life.

If you are female, King of Rainbows will bring masculine energy to support your life, along with your existing partner. For males, this card represents a time to break the conventional stereotype for men and to make mankind’s fullness uplifted.

II. The Energy of King of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

In the East people have condemned the body, condemned matter, called matter “illusory,” Maya – it does not really exist, it only appears to exist; it is made of the same stuff as dreams are made of. They denied the world, and that is the reason for the East remaining poor, sick, in starvation. Half of humanity has been accepting the inner world but denying the outer world. The other half of humanity has been accepting the material world and denying the inner world. Both are half, and no man who is half can be contented.

You have to be whole: rich in the body, rich in science; rich in meditation, rich in consciousness. Only a whole person is a holy person, according to me. I want Zorba and Buddha to meet together. Zorba alone is hollow. His dance has not an eternal significance, it is momentary pleasure. Soon he will be tired of it. Unless you have inexhaustible sources, available to you from the cosmos itself…unless you become existential, you cannot become whole. This is my contribution to humanity: the whole person.


Queen of Fire – Minor Arcana Court Card


I. The Explanation of Queen of Fire Osho Zen Tarot

The Queen of Fire Osho Zen is so rich, so much a queen, that she can afford to give. She did not even have the concept of stockpiling or storing it for later use. She dispersed wealth immeasurably, welcoming everyone to share the wealth, fertility, and light that surrounded her.

If you draw this card, you are also able to share your love, joy, and laughter. And while sharing, you find yourself becoming fuller. There is no need to go anywhere or to make any special effort. You find yourself able to enjoy sensual pleasures without possessiveness or attachment, being able to have children or creating new projects with a sense of balance and creativity. Everything around you seems to be “connected”. Enjoy it, bury yourself in it, and let wealth flow in you and around you.

II. The Energy of Queen of Fire Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

As you move above to the fourth center – that is the heart – your whole life becomes a sharing of love. The third center has created the abundance of love. By reaching to the third center in meditation, you have become so overflowing with love, with compassion, and you want to share. It happens at the fourth center, the heart. That’s why even in the ordinary world people think love comes out of the heart. For them it is just hearsay, they have heard it; they don’t know it because they have never reached to their heart.

But the meditator finally reaches to the heart. As he has reached to the center of his being – the third center – suddenly an explosion of love and compassion and joy and blissfulness and benediction has arisen in him with such a force that it hits his heart and opens the heart. The heart is just in the middle of all your seven centers – three centers below, three centers above. You have come exactly to the middle.

Compulsion, Necessity, Pain

Our lesson is the necessity of bearing strong enforcement. Your positive aspects can be controlled by the people who surround you. To pull this rune means to get a hint that there is going to be stagnation  – an occasion to re-consider your plans carefully.  It is the time to pay off old guilt and even if it’s easy it is time to restore balance. Therefore improve, reconstruct, organize: if the fishermen cannot pull out, they repair their fishing nets. You must deal with and face your own demons. So keep your anger as well as your impulses under control.  Modesty and a good mood are essential in such times.

Keywords: Love, relationships.

Meanings: The Rings is the rune of love and again, when it is the leading stone, it is a positive answer to your question. It is very much a rune of relationship and can indicate engagement, marriage or a new/renewed relationship. It can also indicate the need for a fresh approach to an existing relationship.

Symbolic of the hawthorn tree, the Huath corresponds to the letter H. It’s associated with passionate love, commitment, healing, and protection. The name huath is thought to have been derived from Old Irish uath, which means horrible or frightful.

In Ireland, the hawthorn is considered a fairy tree, and believed to bring bad luck and destruction to those who tamper with one. The flowers of hawthorns are traditionally used as the crown of the May Queen during the festival of Beltane.

Hexagram Seventeen/17

Name: Sui.

Keyphrase: Following.

Formed By The Trigrams: Lake over Thunder.

General: Balancing the heart and mind of leadership will help assure steady progress.

Love: Show your partner what you require by example rather than words. be gentle with them.

Business: Hard work needs to be balanced by rest.

Personal: Plan for gradual progress and make sure that hard work is balanced by rest.

Overview: Sui indicates that you should lead by example rather than just telling everyone what to do. It indicates a time where gradual progress should be the plan and that work should be balanced with periods of rest. Effective leadership is about serving, not about power and ego. A leader has obligations to all those that work for him and this should not be overlooked. Learn the needs of those that follow you and if some of these needs need correcting then do so by gentle persuasion not by harsh words.


From worldnumerology.com


It is spiritual growth, faith, and balance. It is also wealth or bankruptcy. It is an inner struggle to remain true to spiritual and moral values, while at the same time dedicating itself to the material world – one of the most conflicting numbers.

IF YOU ARE BORN ON FEBRUARY 17, you are hot-blooded and yes, my dear Aquarius, you are weird and wonderful! It’s not because of your out-going personality, or that you do not care for people knowing your business. It is not even that you prefer to be a loner. You like being by yourself.

People with a February 17 birthday are private and expect people to respect your wishes. (Call before you come as intrusive people are turn-offs for Aquarians.) It is because, Aquarius, you get in a mood and suddenly, your word becomes questionable.

As your birthday horoscope profile shows, you become rebellious, hurtful and angry, almost to the point of doing physical harm to someone. If not this, then you are keeping to yourself. You do not answer phone calls or return messages.

February 17 Aquarius, you can be stubborn and sometimes, you are just unstable. You need not act on your impulses all the time. It is in you. Be strong. Because of this, you do not make friends right away, or at least any real friends. You want them to shed their quandaries but will not allow yourself to be seen as human.

On the surface, many that seek your companionship are willing participants in the dating game until they find out that you value your freedom more than you appreciate them. Aquarians born on February 17 are usually best compatible with someone much like themselves.

You don’t have to work as hard with two Aquarians. You are mirroring so, figuring out where your weakness is or where your strengths are, is easy.

On the other side, Aquarius, you are a do-gooder. The Aquarius birthday analysis for those born on February 17 shows you are proud humanitarians. You will do something beneficial that will change the conditions of people for the better. You know how to get down to the root of a problem, hear both sides and draw your conclusion before making a decision.

Some of your efforts may be idiosyncratic so expect a negative response or two. That is when you pull your pants up and dig deeper. People should respect your hard honesty. After all, you get the job done.

The February 17 birthday person is full of ideas, and your results are prosperous. What is wonderful about you Aquarius is that you are intelligent, rational, and down-to-earth. Those born on this day are Aquarians that can be trusted. You are always looking for new ways to make money. You have a progressive way of thinking. Aquarians are sophisticated people.

As the February birthday zodiac sign, you will be driven like the wind. Some people never change how their surroundings look. Not you, Aquarians live for a change. You also have a flair that is different from most of ours. It is a drastic change from shopping at Gap.

You have invented your style, which shows your personality off. You love to mix and match the oddest of things. The proof is in your decorator’s tips complete with all the latest commodities. Innovative and unique ideas impress you.

February 17 Aquarius birthdays do not handle their own money very well. Since you prefer to work for yourself, you need to stay focused on the next bid. You need not wait until the last minute to secure another paycheck. It will save you the hassle of making payment arrangements or ultimately, having your power supply turned off.

If today is your birthday, then you are advised to stay on the grind and stay away from quick loan services. Avoid the stress so you won’t suffer from headaches and experience sleepless nights.

Aquarians, you need to take good care of your health. You have an appreciation for alcohol. You need to be careful with that especially since you are prone to having some mysterious accidents, some of which can be downright funny stories.

Nevertheless, you have a propensity to have problems with your legs. You could also have more significant issues such as heart disease. No one wants that. Take care of yourself, Aquarius.

In conclusion, the Aquarius birthday astrology for those born on February 17 says you are weird and wonderful! You are most certainly a proud, compassionate Aquarius. You have your style and love doing your own thing.

Aquarians sometimes are responsible for their financial struggles. Stay away from negative forces and take care of yourself!

February 17, 2023 Moon Goddess Current Phase

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious, you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else was born.

From MoonGiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. This phase is best viewed just before the sunrise in the western sky. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the February 2023 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.
