One thing that often confuses my customers is working with moon phases. It is very easy to understand once you see the pattern. Many calendars mark the full and/ or new moon phase. You can also look online for that information.
There are 4 phases that I work with.
1. Waxing moon – the moon is getting larger until is is full.
Use this moon phase to work with anything you want to enlarge such as finances, fertility, love, healing etc…
2. Full Moon – this is when the moon is completely round. You can also work the day before and the day after if need be and still work with the full moon phase.
Any kind of magick, spells and ritual can be done on the full moon. It is considered the strongest day of the month for spiritual work of any kind.
3. Waning Moon – after the full moon phase…. the moon begins to get smaller working towards the new moon phase.
Use the waning moon pahase for situations that you would like to see get smaller. Such as: debt, weight, stress, tumors etc…
4. New moon phase – no moon visable in the sky.
Considered by many a very bad time to do any magic, spells or ritual. Use this as a period of rest.
Now study the mon phases and you will see the pattern.
Waxing – Full – Waning – New and then it repeats
Always keep this pattern in mind and you life will go much smoother. All energy fluxuates like that. Everything has a pattern like this. Love, relationships, finances, hopes and dreams, happiness, sadness.. everything constantly changes. It is not good nor is it bad.. it is just the ebb and flow of life. If you life is terrible right now… it will eventually improve. I have found that meditating on the moon patterns, I can handle negative situations much easier. I know when troubles arise… and they will because I have chosen to be in this material plane of existance…. that they will subside all I have to do is wait.
