Moon Phase for Magickal Working

* New Moon Magick *
New Moon Spells can be done from the day of the new moon to 3 1/2 days after. The new moon is for starting new ventures, new beginnings. This is also an excellent time for love and romance, as long as you don't interfere with free will.

* Waxing Moon Magick *
The waxing moon is most useful in such areas as love, success, wealth and friendship. Magickal working here, is usually done 7 to 14 days after the new moon. This is a good time to work for increase in your life.

* Full Moon Magick *
The best of all times for any Magickal workings that need that extra help is 14 to 17 days after the new moon. This is the best time for healing rituals or any serious intervention of love, wealth or new adventures.

* Waning Moon Magick *
After the full moon, for 3 to 10 days, is the best time to rid yourself of things hindering you. The waning moon is the time of banishment, but remember always to mind the Rede........if it harm none, do as you will.

From 3 1/2 to 10 1/2 days after the full moon. The waning moon is used for banishing magick, for ridding oneself of addictions, illness or negativity.

* Dark Moon Magick *
Many only talk of the three phases of the moon, but without this phase we would not have a time of introspection. For 10 to 14 days after the full moon is the best time to explore deep within oneself, and make plans for the coming new moon. It is the time to see where you are in your life and to make preparation for the Magickal workings for the new lunar cycle.
