Lunar Cycles

New Moon

This is when there seems to be no moon in the sky at all. This can be a good time to do magic to do with beginnings. Are you starting a new job, a new relationship, a new diet regime or hobby? This is the time to give power to those things. This phase is also a great time to set your goals and intentions for the month which will ‘grow’ as the moon gets bigger and fuller throughout the month.

Waxing Moon

This is when the moon is gradually getting larger in the sky and constitutes all the stages between a thin sliver and right before it becomes full. The way to tell if it is in its waxing (growing) or waning (getting smaller) stage is to see what side the light side is on. If it looks like a capital ‘D’ or the light is on the right side then it is waxing. If it looks like a ‘C’ or the light is on the left side, then it is waning. The waxing moon is a great time to give energy to your goals that you want to manifest in abundance.

Full Moon

The full moon has intense and powerful energy that can be used to empower whatever spell or ritual that you decide to do to the absolute max. There’s no specific magic that corresponds with the full moon so you are free to decide what goals or magic you believe requires a large dose of potency. Some witches also decide to charge their crystals or talismans with it or even create moon water by leaving water out in the moonlight and using it in rituals later.

Waning Moon

The waning moon is when the moon is getting smaller again and making its way back around to the new moon phase. As the moon is seemingly ‘disappearing’, so too is this a time to use magic to remove things from your life. You could focus on banishing negativity or toxic people from your life or cutting cords (attachments) with things that are bad for you, your personal growth and your happiness.
