Moon Signs

Moon Signs

Waxing – Maiden Moon moving from Dark to Full phase
– used for magicks of increase
Full – Mother Moon fully illuminated

– influence felt three days before and three days after

– magicks of completion, success, gains, accomplishment

Waning – Crone Moon moving from Full to Dark phase

– used for magicks of decrease

New – Crone Moon at last silver of crescent to Dark

– used for magicks of banishing, exorcism, cleansings

Dark – Crone as Mystery Moon totally non-illuminated

– used for divinations and meditations

– used for Dark Power Magicks

– Hidden Face of the Goddess as the One Who Transforms

– The Womb as the Tomb, hence, passage to Rebirth

Moon Void-of=Course – Passing from one Sign and entering into another (look in a Magickal Lunar, or Farmer’s Almanac)

– can be between one to four hours

– holds the influence of both signs in balance

– unfavorable for magickal activities

– activities begun rarely are completed

– activities begun may end, but not as expected/desired

– Rule of Thumb, influence of a Moon phase lasts three days

Ground and Center before all Magickal Work: to avoid depleting personal energy levels by augmenting internal energies.
Ground again after all Magickal Work: To avoid overload of personal energy levels by draining out the excess energies.

Change another’s Spell slightly so it is Yours: to make the energy generated recognize it connects to work with you specifically.

The Hunter’s Moon: The month or moon following the ”harvest moon”
Hunting does not begin until after harvest.
~Brewer’s “Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.”

It is the very error of the moon ;
She comes more nearer earth than she was wont,
And makes men mad.

Near full moon, a misty sunrise
Bodes fair weather and cloudless skies.

Dare itself to interpose ;
Cynthia’s shining orb was made
Heaven to clear when day did close :
Bless us then with wished sight,
Goddess excellently bright.
