The Moon And Magick

The Moon And Magick Cover The moon has such a magnificence that she deserves special acknowledgement. A Witch's calendar is based around the phases of the moon. The moon has been worshipped since the earliest of times and most witches pay homage to her through the Goddess and vice versa.

The moon represents the feminine principal, the soul, the inner life of man, fertility, adaptation, the wide, the nation, children and hereditary qualities. It also symbolizes dance, music, story telling, myth, ritual, pregnancy, sex, childbirth and growth, magick and the occult. It controls the ebb and flow of our ocean tides just as it affects the ebb and flow of our emotions.

There are thirteen full moons in the year and they are:

January - WOLF MOON.
February - STORM MOON.
April - SEED MOON.
August - CORN MOON.
September - BARLEY MOON.
October - BLOOD MOON.
November - SNOW MOON.
December - OAK MOON.

The Wolf Moon: The first full moon is a time of silence and sitting by the home fire. The best spells to cast at this time are Protection Spells for children and Purification.

The Storm Moon: At this Moon begin your spring-cleaning. The best spells to cast are Healing and Empowerment spells. This is also a good time for astral travel.

The Chaste Moon: This is the Moon of the maiden and Faery folk. The best spells are Prosperity, Protection and Healing spells. This is also a Moon of waters so anything that involves water would be advised also.
